NEW!! Regional Meet (unnamed) Memorial Day Weekend 2019

return of a Northwest meet!

I am looking to organize a rotary enthusiast meet over Memorial Day weekend in 2019. The Venue would be in conjunction with the Moses Lake Spring Festival. Akin to the former Northwest Rotor Rally and Apple Blossom Festival. This is an event with all the trappings of a car show, music, carnivals, downtown shops, parade, food, and a 3on3 basketball tourney. The area is pretty lively.

The rough outline would be:

Friday: arrival, Dinner and Drinks at TenPin Taphouse. https://tenpintaphouse.com/ Hotel is right next to restaurant/bar :https://tenpininn.com/
Yes, the Taphouse, casino, bowling alley, restaurant, brewery and hotel are on the same property.
Saturday: Car show (9am-3pm) $25 dollar entry fee, includes dash plaque, I believe a shirt and other "swag" or "loot" or whatever this stuff is called now. Funds raised by registration go to Food Bank and supports Big Bend Community College automotive students.
Awards and Raffles at Chicos Pizza (4pm-7pm)
Moonlight Parade (est start time 8:15, but participating cars usually go first so staging times will be earlier)
For those not interested in the parade, the carnival continues or other options is the TenPin or ???
Sunday: Sober up and go home. Any other ideas?

Of course thing cans be added. (mobile dyno had been done in the past... Maybe a tech session? Rebuilding, tuning...ect)

Why Moses Lake? You may ask. ABF was a train wreck. Everything was miles away from everything else and tickets were issued fairly liberally. Most of the law enforcement is busy at the sand dunes so it is not the presence Wenatchee had. There is also something there for everyone, significant others are not locked at the car show like at the ABF car show.

ONCE AGAIN: This is a huge weekend, pulling people from all over the northwest. IF THERE IS AN INTEREST, COMMITMENTS NEED TO BE MADE. Hotels will be booking for the weekend and I am sure I can get a block if I act soon. I am also looking for volunteers and event supporters to assist in bringing this together.
Once I get a feel of how many attendees there are I can start with the hotel and dining reservations.

Here's to a fun gathering of rotorheads !

I secured a block of twenty rooms for the 24th and 25th at the Ten Pin Inn. $85 a night with the cut off date being April 17th to book a room. (reservations:509 764-7500) Rooms are booked under "RX7 Club"

Looking at naming this gathering "R.E. Matsuri _ a rotary engine festival"

more to follow...

As of 3/15 we have 70 days to RE-Matsuri! I have 11 people saying they will attend and 49 interested. On to business: April 17th is the cut off date for our 20 reserved rooms at the TenPinInn ( Call 509 764-7500 and book under RX7). The Moses Lake Classic Car Show has their registration posted. http://www.moseslakeclassiccarclub.c...ation_form.pdf I was considering including this to all Matsuri entrants, but not everyone may be interested in displaying their RX. So car show registration will be the responsibility of those who want to display their car. I have made contact with the hosts and was promised a space where we can be together as a group. I do hope everyone displays their RX. This is not a concourse show. So lets have fun with it! I have a quote for t-shirts looks like between $10-$20 per shirt depending on attendance. 40 shirts were about $10 a piece. Looks like a 2 week turn around. To finish this up, On April 17th I will need confirmation on who will be attending. Within that week I plan to collect funds for Friday' Nights Taco Bar at TenPin Brewery, Saturday Night's Pizza at Chicos and the T-shirts. If anyone would like to contribute "time and talents" please let me know. Thank you!

I got it back from the dealership after they did the airbag recall and she was running like ****. Wouldnít hold idle. Would go fat as hell. I had bought a midpipe to install anyway so I decided to f around with it before I asked the dealership wtf. I needed to do plugs and coils too. So I did all that (back rotor leading coil was for sure bad and plug fowled) and reset the eshaft position and it was still running like crap. But I could at least get it to idle. Just got new O2 sensors and I think all is right with the world. I know compression is going bad on it. But it is what it is.

Do do you know if anyone with MazdaEdit Pro or anything like that will be coming?
