I am a regional leader for a car club. I just want to spread this around. Events like this in the midwest don't come here often, if we don't support them, they go away, so I'm just doing my part.

I am. Live like hour away from there and have that weekend off...All are welcome, last two years it has been a little unorganized, but big turnouts makes things difficult especial when there are multiple events going on at the same place.
