Thank you MR.Wilson007 for posting that info here.

I do see that other rotaries have done deals gap before. I had no intension of this being bothersom to some of you. We decided to call it a 1st annual because it the name we used was the first time and also we are trying to get everyone involved.
Once again, If some of you are bothered by us calling it the first annual Mazda Rotaries at Deals Gap, I would sincerely appologize. Hope you guys will still attend, As its a FREE event and place where we could all meet and not just thru the computer screen.

Herblenny,
I don't think anyone felt that the event posting was bothersome, and apologies are certainly not needed. We were just pointing out that this forum has been plastered with threads on both this year's event in September, and the September 2005 event already well involved.
The other point was that this year's event was open to ALL rotaries (and so named), and not a single RX-7 participated, or even showed any interest. I, for one, appreciate misterwilson007 bringing the event information to this forum, and I'll probably be there, given that I'm a "local".

You can't have a 1st Annual anything

FYI, you can't have a 1st annual anything. In order for it to be ANNUAL it has to have happened once before. Hence the meaning it happens every year. As a result the word that is used for the first time an event is held is INAUGURAL. You can have a 2nd Annual but not a 1st. Just some FYI.

On another note why in the world have two events, though I am not opposed to going more than once a year. It would seem to make sense that in order to get an event bigger and get more sponsorship the rotary followers should join forces. If all you are shooting for is a get together for some fun I understand but it seems that by your discussion of banquet rooms and lodging that there is going to be a cost and seems to be more than just a "get together". I say lets join forces and make all the other groups pale in comparison to our rotary numbers. That's just my two cents.

well, you guys can argue about the event, its name, and the logistics behind it all you want, but I'm going b/c I wanna have some fun and meet people who have the same interests as me........I don't see what the big deal is....... after all, we're all rotorheads right????

If you're planning on going that's great........if not that's great too


edit: 100th post :D

No big deal with me. I was agreeing with the "why dont we do a tag team effort on this thing proposal!". I like the idea of going to the dragon (would have went last year, but the wife wasn't feeling it.. we have since fixed that though :D ). Your absoutly correct, we are all rotorheads. What do you say Raz, how about calling up the 7 boys and lets make some common ground! If not, thats ok too .

We posted both this year's event as well as next year's event on the RX-7 forum as well as here. Where's the interest from all the non-RX-8ers? Haven't seen any so far, but the event is still open to all.

Leep's idea has merit, but our September 2005 event is already fixed by contractural obligations for lodging, food, sponsors, etc. and has been in active planning for over 3 months now. So, the only question I have is not "why", but "how"?

It's true that we're all rotorheads, but it seems as if the RX-7 folks feel like we're poaching on their sacred ground to come up with an event on our own. Sure, many of the RX-7 clubs have invited RX-8ers to their events, and they have been welcomed. But it's a 2-way street in my book, and to just pop up with something which competes with our efforts; after 3 months of time, money, advertising, and hard work, just didn't sit well with me. Maybe it's just a timing thing, but it's not like somebody couldn't have scanned our forum first to check and see. I'm all for embracing the entire rotary community, and we have, and are still attempting to do so. It's almost like many of the RX-7 folks don't think we belong, and that they are just waiting on a new RX-7 to come along; and that's OK too. Like I said before, I'll probably attend both.

I see no competition from the 7 club with the 8 club. I joined here not long before the prospect of an outing with the 7's. They voted on a date and a place and wolla! However, I guess you guys might get offended and maybe I could see that. Surely we are bigger than that. As for the 1st annual, well, anyone can name anything whatever they wish. There have been other 1st annual events in all types of sports so I realy see no difference. As for the 7's not coming to the 8 get togethers, I can only speak for myself. I was not aware of the events. In the future I for one would enjoy attending the 8 events if I am allowed to so. After all I am a first gen owner and there are so very few of us left. So I try to go to the events that are close enough and are all rotary.

Here is an update to the event..

Fontanna Village will give us the Low season rate + 15% off on the cabins.... and 25% off on the Hotels.

Rotary Extreme decided to sponsor our event...
RotoSport is deciding either cash sponsorship or door prizes...
Hinson Super car is coming out with their LS1 3rd gen monster and also help out with sponsorship.
RX7store told me before Xmas that they were also interested in sponsoring this event
RX7trix were also interested in sponsoring.
I'm good with Trussville Mazda here in town and they will most likely part sponsor this event.
So far over 60 RX7 owners are interested in coming to this event.

Still a FREE event, cheap lodging, possible free food, cheap t-shirt ($10)... I don't know why this would cause problems???

T-shirt design..



The way we are going to control people would be thru the T-shirt..

Shirts are going to be the KEY thing to have. It will be your ticket to registration and also for free food, drink, and door prizes.. All the people who purchase will get priority over people who just show up.

Tshirts will be passed out at Deals Gap and Deals Gap only.

Place your sizes and number

1. AbadR1- 1 x XXL (RX7club)
2. Herblenny (ME!) - 1x M and 1x S (1 for me and 1 for woman)(RX7club)
3. 13b4Me - ??(RX7club)
4. LizardFC - 1xsmall (RX7club)
5. Agentspeed - 1 x LG (RX7club)
