IA: Nationwide Meet in Ames 05/05/2006 - 05/07/2006

It would be great to see a big 'ol bunch of boxes show up for our event, therefore:


Hello fellow Scion owners!

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the ScinergyIA/Wilson Scion All Scion Show 3.0 to be held May 5th, 6th, and 7th here in Ames, IA!

This will be the first ever NATIONWIDE meeting of Scion owners open to EVERYONE! Truly this will be an historical event.

My name is Alex Millen and I will be the primary organizer of this event. I am a Scion owner, Scion salesman, Scion parts guy, and a proud member of ScinergyIA, Iowa’s first Scion Owners’ Club. I have had great fun hosting the first two shows here at the dealership this past year and would like to amp things up for this year. To do that, I need your participation.

I am not going to put a huge hook on this show because I don’t have those kinds of resources and I don’t think that it will be required. This, like every other event I have planned for Scions, will be an event FROM Scion owners FOR Scion owners. What I can promise is a great time, great people, great Scions, and a little piece of history.

Here’s what we will be doing. As mentioned before, this will be a three day event. We will start things on Friday, May 5th 2006 at Old Chicago Restaurant here in Ames. Starting at 6:00pm, Scions will roll in, take their place in the parking lot, and join us inside for a classic meet and greet to build friendships, finally meet face-to-face, and fuel those classic rivalries that make our shows exciting and worthwhile. To get the juices flowing we will award the “Night Rider” trophy to the Scion with the best night time display at 10:00pm (or so). You will NOT want to miss out on this prestigious award!

The following morning will start the main event of the meet, the All Scion Show 3.0 on the Wilson lot. This will be our third (and by far our biggest) Scion only show at Wilson’s. The entire lot will be handed over to our Scions for the day so that we may conduct our car show, play some music, and have some fun. This will be a judged show with trophies and prizes. There will be cash up for grabs as well as parts and gift certificates given away. Categories will include best xA, xB, and tC as well as Best Rims, Best ICE, Best Presentation, and Best of Show. There will be other highly prestigious awards as well from Fujiz.com and my personal favorite, Grizzly’s Choice. The winner of Best of Show WILL take home the tallest car show trophy ever (this will be certified by Guinness). Judging will begin at noon and trophy presentation will begin at 4pm. After the awards are all out we will give everyone a short break before putting together the biggest Scion caravan ever on a scenic drive down to Des Moines where those who like can join in the Scinergy Family Dinner! All others are welcome to explore the “Des Moines Night Life” (it’s more fun than you think!) and generally have fun in Central Iowa on a Saturday night.

Those who are so inclined will be welcome to join us on Sunday for “Brunch and Lies” at Olde Main Brewery in Ames before our tearful good-byes.

So, why should you slog all the way out to Central Iowa in early May? To meet your old friends, to make new friends, to show your love of Scion, to show the strength and solidarity of your club, to have your shot at the tallest car show trophy EVER, to brag that you showed at the first open NATIONWIDE Scion car show, and to be part of Scion history. All Scions will be welcome at the meet from stock to mild to wild to freakin’ nuts.

Many more details will be announced as the show draws closer. This is primarily a notice so that you have 6 full months to plan your trips!

If you have questions, please contact me via PM or email at [email protected]. I will be more than happy to help in your planning.

I look forward to seeing EVERYONE there! Thanks so much for your time thus far.

-Alex

Cool. Thanks very much.

A line of boxes in a caravan is a beautiful thing even when there's only 10. I can't even wrap my brain around 50-100 of them! This is going to ROCK!

Rooms have been reserved. I got 10 double occupancy rooms at a good place just down the street from the dealership (figure about a mile away, but on the same street) called the University Inn. Those 10 rooms are reserved for both Friday and Saturday nights and are $95 per room per night. All rooms are non-smoking. In addition, I have reserved 4 Mini-Suites for Friday night at the Gandstay Residential Suites. That place is actually attached to Old Chicago (where we will be meeting on Friday night). Those rooms are $150 each. Two are smoking. They are booked for the Saturday, but I am first on the waiting list if any become available.

Please note that May 6th (Saturday) is Iowa State University's graduation weekend and hotels in the immediate area have mostly filled up already. This is why I have reserved rooms.

If you want a room, please contact me VIA EMAIL ASAP. I'm posting this up all over the place and won't be able to check PMs on every site. If these are assigned quickly, I'll try to get more rooms. They're all reserved on my personal credit card under my name and I'll be keeping a list of who has dibs on what.

My email is [email protected].

I'll put up a few people in and around my house too, but I only have one tiny bathroom and one tiny water heater. I also have only one wife. Putting lots and lots of stress on any of these things by having 20-30 people staying with me would probably cost me dearly if you catch my drift. I'll do what I can, but if you can afford to do a room, that would be very cool.

So, that's what I got! If you need a room, SPEAK UP!
