Exclamation 2009 48hrs of Tristate Official Information Thread

That's right folks, it's that time of the year again, when we all break out of the winter blues of no car shows, no auto-x, no road racing, no drag strips and head out on the open highway for a good cause. This is the 8th Annual running where a group of Subaru enthusiasts from all over the TriState area take a 3 day long trip covering about 48hrs of driving overall from Subaru Headquarters in NJ to the wintery snow of the Adirondacks.

This year we are planning on about 900 miles of highways, backroads and no roads with dinners and partys every night. We also will be visiting SOA headquarters in Cherry Hill, NJ we will also be visiting Subaru Distributors Corp, the company that distributed most of our cars, and Vermont Sports Car where they build rally cars for SOA. Last year we raised over $13,000 for the American Cancer Society from pledges that the participants gathered and SOA's matching donations! Our goal this year is to raise over $8,000 for ACS.

The trip will start with a dinner kickoff in Cherry Hill, NJ on Thurs Night Jan 15, 2009. We will continue on Friday morning with a visit to Subaru of America Headquarters for breakfast and then the drive will take our Subies up to SDC Headquarters for a catered lunch.

Friday night we end in Burlington, VT. Saturday morning we have a tour of Vermont Sports Car planned, a treat for any Rally fans out there. Sat night after cruising the Northern Adirondacks we will end up at Dunham's Bay Resort in Lake George for our Raffle Banquet. Sunday will take us down through central NYS ending at our closing dinner meet in Scranton, PA

All kinds of Subies are welcome on this trip. We've had XT6s, GLs, DLs, Legacies, Brats, you name it!

Several companies also have provided us with door prizes for those participating! In past years we've had $1000s and $1000s worth of raffle prizes!

The important info:
What: Group drive to raise money for ACS and have a fun 900+ mile trip along the way.
Where: Starts in Cherry Hill, NJ and continues throughout NJ and NY with stops in Burlington, VT the Adirondacks, Lake George and Scranton, PA
When: Jan 15- Jan 18, 2009
More info: http://48hrs.info

Highlights….
o Tour of VT Sports Car facility, where they build the Subaru Rally Cars (Awaiting Official Confirmation)
o SPT will have the SEMA Forester XTI and Rescue Vehicles on hand at SOA for us to check out for ourselves
o Biggest, Best Raffle Banquet
o SDC will be giving away in excess of $4,000 in prizes this year!
o Catered Breakfast at SOA and possibly a tour of the Subaru Museum of Cars
o Catered Lunch at SDC

i have set up the team ACS page.
http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/Te...am&fr_id=17840
lots of editing needs to be done but it is there. to join the team you have to "pay" $25.00 though that money goes to the total donation. set up your own page and have friends/family/co-workers donate directly to acs under your name!

much more info to come on this.

team name is "2009 48 Hours of Tri-State"

Hey Ted: If we pay the $25 to set up a page there, will that contribution count towards raffle tickets? (Just asking; I'm gonna do it anyway.) How customizable is that ACS page?

Yes, we are actually working on that right now. This year to avoid the 3% Paypal Fees, what we are probably going to do is give you tickets for the raffle based on the amount of donations you put in. For instance, and this is only an example, nothing firmed up yet, for that for ever $25 in donations you get a raffle ticket. This assures everyone that 100% of the raffle ticket money is actually going to ACS.

We should have details up within a day or so.

LOL. With all the sponsors, will we be able to sell enough raffle tickets that way, or will we have prizes left over? $8k goal @ $25 per ticket, that's only 320 tickets. We have more prizes than that, right?

dont forget to have your co-drivers register as well, they will then get 3 raffle tickets and a way for them to have co-workers and family donate!

So, both of the drivers, pretty much anyone attending, should sign up on the ACS webpage?

You NEED 1 Team member per car at a minimum. That get's you in SOA, SDC and VTSports Car and 3 Raffle tickets. Any money you raise under your name on the ACS webpage gives you more raffle tickets at a rate of 1/$10 raised.

So for example if you have 2 people in your car, and you sign up each seperately you pay $50 and get 6 tickets total. If you sign up together and pay $50 you only get 5 tickets total.

Does the co-driver/navigator have to be experienced? Or do you just need to have 2 ppl per car to enter... also, if I sign up as if I'm going to attend the whole trip and I bounce out after/around the VT tours or get my brother to join up (MY05 2.5 RS wag), will that be a problem? Very excited about the snow tour, esp because I love VT! Cheers,
-Matt

PS - Bravo you goin over night before or meeting at SOA in the am? Either or, I'm game for a few brews or I'll cruise over early in the Morn for breakfast. Lookin forward to it.

You don't have to have 2 people per car. Just a recommendation since there is a decent amount of driving. If the other driver isnt experienced, that's OK, just switch up before the snow so you can drive in the slippery stuff.
Your brother can join up as well, that's no problem.

The co-driver does not have to be experienced. This drive is NOT like a TSD where you have to read directions the whole time. Pretty much you will just follow the car infront of you and make sure you can see the car behind you. You do not have to have a co-driver but it is VERY HIGHLY recommended that you do. If possible, try to get a co-driver that can take-over driving for you.

The co-drivers come in handy when driving is difficult (traffic/lost), another set of eyes to look for you, operate CB radio, navigate (if needed), & keep you company/make sure you stay awake.

This should not be an issue, we ask for expected start point so that we can arrange a spot to meet you/pick you up/join the group (if needed). As for the finsish location, we get that information so we know (roughly) the # of cars we'll have for how long and also a rough # of those attending final dinner. IF you are going to bail-out earlier then expected please let one of the organizers (ideally Mike or goup leader) ahead of time, so that when you do seperate from the group we know everything is cool.

I don't think there will be any issue's if your brother join's the group. Ideally if he knows ahead of time and can register online that will make things easier. If it is last minute he should catch up with Mike as soon as he can in case we need to change our #'s for any reservations. Mike, chime in here if there is any additional concerns with this matter.

Co-Driver is not needed however it helps a ton. Don't sweat too much about having to bring one even if something happens and you can't drive. There's always plenty of float around co-drivers who are willing to drive for you if you're too tired or again if something happens.

I've done the trip 3 times without a co-driver. No big deal. This year I may have a passenger with me, but he won't be driving. Either way is cool, just make the trip and have a blast.

I have to get registered over on the site, hopefully soon.

Solid, yea I am actually a bit used to the route because I was constantly driving Wash DC to Middlebury VT straight through and alone when I would go to and from home to college. So I'm not too worried about driving/gettin sleepy. If I do, though I'll snatch up a freeloader.

Apart from that, I'll hopefully be able to raise some solid money for this cause on my own without a co driver, I'll be registering soon. As far as hoppin off or grabbing my brother, I'll talk to him on turkey day and see if he wants to join for a bit or if he wants to ski I'll jump off and get up with him. All in all this is a great excuse to get me up there for the exact reason I'm a suby owner! Yehaw
