10th Annual Mid-America Capri Gathering
« on: July 11, 2010, 07:27:00 AM »

Ladies and Genitalmen,  I am pleased to announce that next years Gathering will be back in Rockford/Freeport Illinois.  Lord willing we will have the Rockford Speedway once again, with picnic and activities in Freeport at Krape Park.

This is the tenth anniversary for this gathering and we want it to be HUGE.  We have the website CapriGathering.com for information and the updates that will be forthcoming.  We want all of you to get the word out about this special event.  We want cars there from all 48 states (Alaska and Hawaii are excused, but welcome)

So please help us make this the biggest Gathering ever.

We will have to wait until next year for a date.  We need to find an open date at the track, and they won't know until around feb.

B-O-C (Bag of crap) next year will be items sent in my members.  If no one sends anything, there will be no B-O-C.  If you happen upon items that you think would be cool to add, send them to me.  Quantity should be at least 50 pcs.  We are expecting a huge turn out for this gathering.

I just got back from the Rockford Speedway and was told that they no longer rent out the track on race nights.  So, we will not have the racetrack for this years gathering.

This years Mid-America Capri Gathering will be on August 13th.  We will meet up in Krape Park, and then later in the afternoon go to downtown Freeport for our annual cruise night.

We look forward to seeing everyone here.

I don't think there is a motel that has free porn and will let us get rowdy and spit fire out of our exhausts at 2am around here.

I am sorry to hear about the track....  but it will be fun even without the track....

Rick and I are supposed to be in St. Louis that weekend..or at least Rick for a race... so we have some scheduling issues to work out...  I will try and get our cars to the meet, even if Rick and I can't join in for this years MACG...  

Please take lots of pictures so we can see what we missed... if we can't make it....   Everyone, have those camaras ready!

Dr. Bob, I will call you to discuss our plans later this week....

I can't wait.... the 10th anniversary of the MACG....  this is a sign that Warmer weather is coming!!!!!   Party time!!!!!

We need to get the word out far and wide.  Josh, you work for Ford (in a round about way)  Can you see if there is anything you can do to get the word out through corporate?  could corporate get the word out to dealers across the country so they can tell their customers?  

We need to get the word out in car magazines, internet sites, and any other way.  If there is a company that deals with Capri parts, we need to invite them to the gathering, and/or have them help get the word out.

Remember, this is YOUR gathering, and it will only be as good as YOU make it.

Just a reminder (for those who don't know) that Bob is the MC and originator (and perhaps ruler of Mid-America Capridom).  Not only that, but the event comes home to Freeport, IL (near Rockford) where it got its start!  This is the first time we have joined the City's Annual Cruise Night.

I am working on at least one logo item for the event depending on $.

We want to make this the largest event of its kind.  Can we beat a 36-car turnout?  Mark your calendar for August 13!  Combine it with a trip to Chicago or historic Galena, Illinois.  Make it a stop on your way to Milwaukee or LA or DC, but plan on attending.  Let's use this as an opportunity to get the most Capris in one place that have ever been in one place!

Mark-
If the logoed item is a shirt, we have a member here that would probably be happy to help. I can email me, as well, and have him get a hold of you......
