Register Your Interest in the National Starion Meet

Postby WANTSOM » Tue Apr 05, 2005 1:32 pm

OK boys and girls,

To start some serious organising I need some feedback. Please fill in the details below so I can start to get some idea of numbers and preferences. (Some questions may appear anal but will help to get a sample and arrange bookings etc)

How sure are you of attending? Definite. 80-90% 50% 30% or only if your mum/wife/girlfriend says so.

Will you be "entering" a car. If so how many?

Would you participate in show n shine?

Would you participate in some "soft" driving events on a closed circuit?

Would you prefer a cruise to a destination and/or a novelty event (treasure hunt type of thing"?

If a Saturday night dinner with guest speaker was arranged would you attend?

If entertainment was arranged for either Saturday or Sunday night would you prefer live band, DJ, no entertainment just lots of beer.

For accomodation planning how many people would you bring ie (just me; me and wife/girlfriend; me, wife and 1.5 children; me and 2 mates.).

Would you share accomodation with fellow members?

Would youprefer accomodation in Hotel/motel/camping?

Woud you be prepared to pay an "entrants fee" to cover the cost of hiring some facilities and or venues?

Do you have any suggested event activities?

If awards were to be given, what would you like to see recognised?

If some members (ie our NZ friends) need transport, can you assist?

For any overseas visitors, if you were to attend would you need any special asistance?eg temp accomodation, transport to the venue, a spare car to fang on the weekend?

If yes to the last question, are you prepared to pay for the rebuild? - just kidding!

Please answer the above seriosly as the information is required for planning purposes. The idea is to make this a special weekend and to try and meet the expectations of the majority so please help.

More details will come out as we start to firm in some definite arrangements.

Thanks
Greg

How sure are you of attending? Definite. 80-90% 50% 30% or only if your mum/wife/girlfriend says so.
Definite as possible at this point in time. I'd like to say 80%, but as I'm a teacher, I would **really* like this to be during school holidays (April 2006?). I can find dates (for SA and other states if need be).
Will you be "entering" a car. If so how many?
One JD Starion
Would you participate in show n shine?
I plan to. Much to do in the next 12 months.
Would you participate in some "soft" driving events on a closed circuit?
I'm soft :wink:, so maybe some easy stuff
Would you prefer a cruise to a destination and/or a novelty event (treasure hunt type of thing"?
If it's fairly relaxed driving, why not (I'll have to drive home once this thing is done).
If a Saturday night dinner with guest speaker was arranged would you attend?
Yes
If entertainment was arranged for either Saturday or Sunday night would you prefer live band, DJ, no entertainment just lots of beer.
I hope my car stereo could provide the sound...seriously, I love 'DJ style' tunes and bands, so I'm up for anything. As long as there's Coopers :beer
For accomodation planning how many people would you bring ie (just me; me and wife/girlfriend; me, wife and 1.5 children; me and 2 mates.).
Me + gf
Would you share accomodation with fellow members?
Probably just me and gf...
Would youprefer accomodation in Hotel/motel/camping?
Whatever is fine, although motel would be preferable. What's sleeping anyway?
Woud you be prepared to pay an "entrants fee" to cover the cost of hiring some facilities and or venues?
Sure, as long as it's reasonable. Perhaps entrants fees for cars in different events (show'n'shine, races etc) and general fees for 'the public'?
Do you have any suggested event activities?
Drinking beer, bbq, photo area with a big 'Starion Oz Fest' banner behind it, partying all night.
If awards were to be given, what would you like to see recognised?
Best JA, best JB, best JD, best widebody, loudest engine, stupidest BOV sounds, best interior, the Ricest Staz, craziest mods, biggest manboobs, most beer that can be fit in a Staz, most people in a Staz, biggest femboobs, shiniest engine bay....I'll stop now
