Autocross Awards Party 2013

Post by got desl? » Tue Jan 01, 2013 12:51 pm

Mark your calendars! The Autocross Awards Party is right around the corner in the new year!

The Chicago Volkswagen Organization will be hosting our annual Awards party to celebrate the 2012 season at The House Pub in St. Charles. Come on out to catch up with old friends and to meet some new people. At the party we will be awarding Autocross trophies for the TOP THREE FINISHERS :thumbup: in each class.

What: CVO Holiday Party
When: Saturday, February 2nd, 2013 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)
Where: The House Pub* - 16 South 1st Avenue - St. Charles, IL 60174

*We will have the upstairs lounge area reserved for ourselves. (When you enter the Pub head to your right and up the stairs on left)

What else:
  • The House Pub was opened in 2008 by Tom Wojcik, a long-time CVO member and the original CVO VP :thumbup:
  • There will be a cash bar and The House Pub has over 125 international beers available (please drink responsibly). Come celebrate the old season and get ready for a new season of racing! :yahoo:
  • Anyone who is not 21 will be designated with a wristband and OBVIOUSLY will NOT be allowed to drink alcohol. Because this is a private party we are allowed to have people under 21, but we ask that everyone please respect this rule.
Hope to see everyone on the 2nd ready to kick off 2013 CVO style! Please post up if you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly.

I don't post much on here, but this is just a thought..if the money is what is stopping this, why not do cut out a few of the auto-xs for the season (probably get a higher turn out for the ones you will have then)? Why not maybe try to do something like a ticket system where you just pay for the season up front (at 20$ an event or whatever it was, it probalby wouldn't be too bad for at least some people to pay for a year up front), then if someone can't make the event they can just sell their ticket maybe?

Another thought would be to sell enough "season tickets" in advance to pay for the season, you can still do "day of" registration, but it'll cost more?

Unless of course what you are taking in just way less than what it needs to be? Not sure what the situation is like...but just some thoughts.

Good idea Jo but the costs with running an auto-x event are high. Your average parking lot rental fee is $1000 not including insurance. On a side note, perhaps we can still have an event or three at the tire rack since they do not charge for facility usage. What say the board?

Rather disappointing there is no feedback from the board. I am going to assume Treffen is dead as well due to lack of funding.
