Cockeysville Car Show – June 25th

The 1st Annual Cockeysville Car Show is this Saturday, June 25th.  It should be a great day for all attendees as this Saturday is supposed to be sunny.   Perfect for a car show!

Lots of different cars are welcome to the event.  You can enter your car to be judged in several categories including, 1950s & Older, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990-Present.  There will be door prizes awarded every 1/2hr, which might be a $50 Wal-Mart gift card or a $25 AutoSpa gift card, car detail kit, or automotive services from Brooks Huff Tire..  On top of that there will be a DJ playing music, food and refreshments, and even a snowball stand.

The show is raising money for the Children's Miracle Network.  Stacey Lee one of the shows coordinators, “The event has over 12 sponsors.  All the proceeds from the $1 entrance donation and concessions go towards Wal-Mart’s charity drive for the Children’s Miracle Network.  Proceeds from the registration for judging & trophies will be split between Wal-Mart’s charity and Wood Forest National Bank’s charity.”  Be sure to come out for a great car show and feel good about doing something good!

College Park tuning car Meet canceled!

I'm sorry to inform everyone that the University of Maryland's College Park tuning Meet that was supposed to be happening today, Sunday May 1st at Fedex Field, has been canceled. Due to insufficient insurance coverage, the organizers will not be allowed to hold the event at Fedex Field. This is very unfortunate, since the meet was supposed to benefit Martha's Table. It's a great organization that provides food, clothing, and learning resources for those of us who are less fortunate. I hope everyone will make a donation regardless. Hopefully the organizers will not have this problem next year, and will be able to raise the proper funds for insurance coverage.

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Time
Noon, 12:00 pm. I know some of you might show up early but remember this year there is 6,200 spaces instead of 2,300

Food

Dyno
• $75.00 for 2 – 3 baseline pulls w/ A/F and printout. FWD or RWD only
• If you are interested in dynoing your car, please send an email to collegeparktuning@gmail.com or follow this link. They are trying to have people pre-register for the dyno.

Reserving Space
The people have spoken and if you want to reserve space for your club or group you need to contact the organizer ASAP and give them an approximate head count by April 22nd. If you want to have a tent for your group there is a fee associated with that (Fedex's fee, not mine). If you put up a tent and don't pay this fee you will have to take it down.

Basic Rules
1. Be respectful of other peoples cars. Please do not touch a persons car without their consent
2. No tents (unless your group contacts collegeparktuning@gmail.com ASAP, Fedex requires us to pay a tent permit fee)
3. No alcohol
4. No scandalous attire (this is a family event)
5. Chairs are permitted everywhere but no taking up parking spaces with them
6. No saving spaces (Unless your group or forum contacts us before hand at collegeparktuning@gmail.com)
7. No burnouts or anything stupid. Police will be at the event and cameras are rolling 24/7 at Fedex
