Default IDEA

It was pretty dangerous, but I got to thinking... how about an end of summer "KBRL BASH" complete with a battle of the bands in the parking lot ( I know a few local bands that can recruit bands) and a fun "battle of (insert name here), maybe battle of the wives/girlfriends, pro's vs. Joe's OR pro's and Joes. Have a pro driver teamed up with a band member and one drives and the other steers.

I'm sure we can come up with plenty of ideas, but I thought some fun and different would be cool.

How about it Keoni and Kenny?

A few tracks I raced at when I lived in Cali did something similar and it turned out a pretty cool event. I think they also did a DJ playing while the racing was going on.

Thanks guys, I think it would be a great time... I'll shoot it! Hell, I'll even make some flyers.

I'm sure we can get atleast 10 bands, maybe more. A requirement, obviously, would be to have them clean up the lyrics, if they need to, to keep it family friendly.

I think it would be a good way to "cross-sell", after all, both groups are "young at heart", we play with toy cars and they dream of making it to the big stage...lol!

Gotta get a permit from the city of Scottsdale, but if you can make it happen it would be awesome

It's a good idea but the problems your going to run into is, it's really hard to hear on the drivers stand with music blasting in the background, as the captain says you will need permits since there is a noise ordinance after 10 pm in az, you will get a lot of people stopping by because of word of mouth which means porto potties, I for one don't want to go into the destroyed bathroom after 100 people of the street have been threw it. And the big thing is keeping everyone's equipment safe in the pits, there is always going to be people with sticky fingers when a big crowd is around.

logistics! damn logistics.....

being able to hear when on the stand wouldn't be a problem with a DJ... i'd run kenny's mic through the system, so we wouldn't be hearing on those 'megaphone' speakers.... i think i could get a system that would rock like a mofo if we ever got to do this (Vareck?)

but the things that Aaron brings up are important: porta potty, security and of course, the damn permit.

it'd be pretty cool, tho

Ok, why can't we use the restrooms that are there? What if the event is done before 10 p.m.? As for security, only wrist bands are allowed through the gate?

What about sponsors, local sponsors or racers that own business'? Maybe plan it for the end of the year and do a "Toys for Tot's" thing (the news media would like that) . Either way, it would be an awesome opportunity for the local small business owner and a great way to promote SRS.

I can do whatever is needed to help out for the event.
