[SA] Next Event (with poll this time)

Just thinking about what I'd like to do next as an event after the Drift day.

We need to plan the 'larger' events months in advance. We do this to give everyone enough notice, drum up as many numbers as possible therefore ensuring the success of the event, we need time to pick the event (so everyones happy) and the outing that need planning, need lots of planning which takes a shitload of time and effort!

So having said that, what do you guys want to do next?

Personally I wouldnt mind having another Dyno Day soon (dammit I want fastest I6!). Also karting could be some fun!

Re: [SA] Next Event (with poll this time)

Im happy with a maybe a day cruise or should I say, an afternoon cruise leading into something fun for the evening!

Say for instance we have a general cruise out to chain of ponds and the like, then say we all meet at a restaurant for a meal and get to know each other, say a place like charlies diner in brighton or salisbury (if there is one), then perhaps cap the night off with another cruise around semaphore and meet up at a pool hall somewhere. (either chalkers @ the bay or the poolroom @ Norwood like last time)

This is just a suggestion, and I realise most people wouldnt be able to afford to do all those things in one day.

The thought of Dyno Day 3 sounds intriging also. But Im not sure all of us have mad that many significant mods since last time.

Go Karting wouldnt be a bad idea either, costly but not bad.

Drag Racing, well unless you want to pay extra for the Saturday Night meet, the only other meet is the Wednesday and during the working week isnt good for some. So a decent turnout may not happen.

Night cruises seem to work at the moment, given we give people plenty of time to prepare.

But someone else may have a better idea.

Yes, I was thinking of something like that Stuart. I reckon the next public holiday weekend should be the goer. More chance of getting a bigger turnout.

Re: [SA] Next Event (with poll this time)

There is another Wednesday night Street Drag meet coming up in June, and I really wanna get out there.

I agree with what Shav said about the dyno day, not a lot of us have done major mods.

Go-Karting would be good, with maybe a mini-enduro like we discussed before. Paintballing is another thing I would like to do. A day meet would be something we haven't done much as well, get some good photos, and do a bit more of a hills run.

I don't really care what it is, they're all good fun.

Next public holiday weekend is May 15th 16th 17th... It also has the Meguiar's Motorex on at the showgrounds for a possible event to attend... isn't it the same weekend as the Mallala thing though?? When's the next after that??

Cheers,
Stuart
