Share Ideas for the 25th Rally

Post by Maplehawk » Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:04 pm

2019 will be the 25th year the Firehawks will flock to Ohio for an August rally :roll:

We want this to be the biggest one in a long time. Share some ideas you think would make it great? special? not to be missed?

Mine:

A. Invite some of the former SLP / Pontiac notables
B. Invite former owners and regulars to return and reconnect with friends
C. Coordinate inbound convoys from multiple directions (including the trailered cars)
D. Increased sponsored prizes (Long distance, best display, etc)
E. More volunteers to tackle some of the activities (cruise, drag racing, prizes, promotions)
F. Designated photographers to capture high quality images throughout the weekend.
G. Ads/Announcements in publications (Smoke Signals, Pontiac Perfection) , message boards posts (F-body and Pontiac printed)
I. Cars from every single year, cars in every single color (its a goal, might motivate a specific owner to be the "only one"). Start a wish list / bingo sheet.

One idea from Keven Shar was doing plaques instead of trophies for the 25th. We have done trophies for 24 years, so it would be something different and sometimes plaques are easier to display inside the car.

Thoughts?

Those are some great ideas.. I really like inviting former SLP / Pontiac notables

Wonder how bad a patina JY 92 clone would be shunned. . .
Always looking for SLP/Firehawk parts for 3rdgen birds.

25th anniversary rally idea: Instead of speakers standing at the podium and talking, a Montage video of the past 25 years with pictures, videos and interviews with owners and key people who helped make the firehawk what it is today to be played at the dinner night.[ and A 120 second or so preview would be a great promo(Mac's idea)] .. In all honesty, I don't want to be sitting at the dinner night for 2hrs, that could cut into the after dinner cruise.


and/or: a different dinner night location where we convoy cruise with police escort to the dinner and the video is still played.

- i also think a huge photo shoot of all the cars would be pretty cool!

Friday night meet and greet to be held and reintroduce the go karts after the meet. The plaque idea is very cool instead of the trophy’s.
