R&H 1st Annual car show to benefit the Children’s Guild – Saturday July 16th

Ford GT

R&H Toyota will be holding their 1st Annual Car Show tomorrow, July 16th.  There will be great activities and events taking place, all for raising money for the Children's Guild.  A wonderful organization that serves the needs of children with trauma disorders, autism, or disabilities in the Maryland and DC area.  What was the impetus for starting the car show?  “We moved our service location from Reisterstown Road, and people didn't know where we were.  We decided to put on a car show and donate the proceeds to a worthy Charity.   The Children's Guild was an excellent choice.” says Jan Braverman coordinator for the event.

The show will include over 100 different vehicles of all kinds.  There will be Ferraris, Porsches, motorcycles, hot-rods, and imports at the show.  Mobil1 will have a racing simulator setup for attendees to try out and they will bring their NASCAR race car to display.  Shell will also have a racing simulator and their race car as well.  (A certain blogger is definitely going to try out both racing simulators.)  An automotive rotisserie, which aids in car restoration, will on be display as well.  R&H Toyota and R&H Mercedez-Benz will be setup with booths, raising money, and selling items for the Children's Guild.  All participants in the car show will receive a goodie bag and dash plaque.  New cars will also be on display from R&H if you are in the market for a new vehicle.

The show is Free for attendees, and it will be a great event.  Remember it's not just about cars, it supports the Children's Guild.

What: 1st Annual R&H Car Show to support the Children's Guild

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.

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

6. No saving spaces (Unless your group or forum contacts us before hand at collegeparktuning@gmail.com)
