Default Uconn Car Club Spring 2010 Show



UConn Car Club
[email protected]

The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 7th Annual Spring Car Show on Saturday, April 10th. This year we WILL have a rain date of Sunday, April 18th. Please check our forum for updates if the forecast looks questionable.

What you need to know:

Location:
W-Lot Commuter Parking Lot on the Storrs Campus
Directly off Storrs Rd (rt. 195)
Storrs CT, 06269
(see map below)

Hours:
Gates open @ 9:00 am (Please try not to come earlier because the lot will not be ready)
Registration closes @ 12:00 pm
Gates close when the parking lot capacity has been reached (~600 cars)
Loudest Car Competition around 1:00 pm
Trophies by 2:00-3:00 pm

Price:
Free to spectators
$10 dollars to show

Parking:
There will be no pre-registration. If your group would like to park together; arrive early and drive in together as a group. The first map attached below lists parking lots in the area and their locations so you can meet as a group before arriving at the show to drive in together.

Important: This year spectator parking will be across Rt. 195 along the side of Horse Barn Hill Road. If you do not plan to register your car, please park in the spectator area. As always, parking is limited at UConn, but we will try our best to accommodate all spectators. Police Officers and club members will be there to direct you.

Competitions/Events:
Loudest Car- A spectator judged competition. No Pre-reg necessary. NO DIESELS, sorry guys.

Bragging Rights
For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest there's something for everyone, including Classics, Domestics, Imports, Euros and even Supercars. All makes, models and price ranges of vehicles are welcome.

Trophies:
Classes are listed below. There will be a 1st place and runner up for each category.

1980 and Newer

Import FWD
Import RWD
Import AWD

Euro FWD
Euro RWD
Euro AWD

Domestic Muscle
Domestic Tuner

Truck/SUV Street

Hot Rod

Specialty Awards

Sleeper
Best Club (Quality)
Club Participation (Attendance)
UC3 Choice
Type R

Note: Best Club Participation Club Award goes to the club with the most participating members. Best Club Award will be awarded to the club that UC3 deems to have the highest quality entrants in respect to the quality of the cars and the attitude of its members. The Type R award goes to the most ridiculously modded car. Bring your cardboard body kits!

We Need Your Input
Have any ideas for our show? Anything from previous shows you would like included or excluded? Any questions, concerns or comments for us? Please let us know! We have a forum setup on our website where you can discuss anything show related WITHOUT having to register. Just follow the link here and enter the password which is UC3 (all caps). You can also find the planning forum at the top of our forum page here. The only way to make our show better is from the input we get and we'll do our best to incorporate as many ideas as possible.

Other Mentionables:
- The parking lot has a maximum capacity of around 600 cars. Once the parking lot is full, THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED. No ifs, ands, or buts. Plan accordingly and it should not be a problem.
- Arrive with the people you want to park with. There will not be any room to leave empty parking spaces open. (see pics below for parking lots outside of the show that you can meet prior to arrival)
- Judging will be done by the attendees and will begin at exactly Noon. Those who arrive past Noon will not be allowed to register for judging.
- We will have porta-potties within the show as well as food and background music.

Sponsors/Vendors
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, please contact the club for further details by email at [email protected]
Space is limited but arrangements can be made.

Please forward any further questions or comments also to [email protected]

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
-UC3

We all have to cruise up together so we can park together. Too bad its not this weekend, its supposed to be REALLY nice. If it rains I'm not going (no windows), but other than that I'm game. So who else is going to join the caravan....240 will be up there, astroboy is from up that way right?, so I guess the only other person beside myself, nick, and chris would be Joe. I'm not sure if Quinn is going, I don't see him on here too much......and dont expect my car to be clean, I'm ridin durty

I'll be coming for sure guys. The car is currently my DD again so as long as it holds up by then I see no reason why I couldn't make it.

I have just a couple minor loose ends I hope to have finished this week and next.

Looking forward to seeing all the cars in person!

Looks like I might not make it guys. ****.

The car has been ok for getting me around here and there, but a 2 hour hike away from home might not be the best idea ATM.

The car has been periodically smoking and now its getting worse. I'm not sure where I could have a bad seal, but I doubt I'll have the time to **** with it by next weekend.

Not to mention the exhaust is hitting the control arm and rattling like crazy.

Neverfuckingends.

So you goin or what?! Looks like the weather is going to cooperate so I'm down... We need to have as many miatas go as possible to make our presence known

Driving up 91N today I saw a good spot to meet up....between exits 18 & 20 (No 19 on 91N) there is a truck rest stop.....maybe this is the one you were refering to Nick. Thats probably the most convenient spot. What time was everyone thinking about heading out?

Yeah chris that's the spot I was talking about... I was thinking meeting at 9am so we could get a decent spot to park...also do you guys wanna enter your cars in the car show or not? I kinda wanted to so people don't **** around with it on the parking lot but at the same time I don't wanna stand next to the car the whole day at the show... Do you guys wanna meet and go get breakfast or meet and be ready to go?
