Default New location for Cars and Coffee?

So me and a couple of people have been talking about changing the location of cars and coffee, but we have been hard pressed to find a good coffee shop with a nice sized parking lot. The current location seems to have dropped in the quality of coffee and maybe if we move it slightly more north we may get more cars to show up. So what is everyones opinion on it?

I say leave it. If it were just the RMIC crowd, I'd say move it but it's not just the RMIC crowd.

^This.

I know we all joke about the Corvettes and Camaros, but everyone knows that thats were CC is. You would have to post the info on every forum, and even then a lot of the people would wonder why they didnt get to vote on location etc etc etc.

I wouldn't mind it moved north a bit. I have been there a few times when it's just me and the honda guys. Usually things pick up in the summer but I still would like to see it moved north.

The coffee is mediocre, but I'm not really there for the drinks. I'm there to hang out with friends and talk cars.

I also think that since there are multiple car groups that frequent C&C it should not be up to the Subaru crowd to dictate the location of the event. It might be interesting to poll the other groups and get an idea if they like the current location or are interested in moving locations.

Or maybe we could just bring our own coffee Dont get me wrong, the location is amazing and the parking fantastic, Maybe we should just let the staff know we want better goods?

It's not about the coffee at all, it is about the cars and hanging out.

You Subaru gents can go wherever you want, but it's not all about you.

Maybe more people live north and would like it more central instead of almost the farthest south you can get it.Maybe for some it is about the coffee also and not just looking at a bunch of piece of **** riced out hondas.

Oh its coming.

Wait, who the **** cares? There was a massive uprising before to change the location and it did not happen. It won't happen again either.

If you don't like the drinks there, bring your own.

This even is much more than just a Subaru event. People are coming now that arent even on forums and they heard about it thru the grapevine. We need to leave it as it is.

For example, that nice guy that let everyone rally around his Testarossa. He isnt on any forums... the information about CC just trickled down to him.

Trust me, I understand that for sure. But at this point as more and more people are finding out about it we have less of a chance to successfully change the location.

We are just going to end up splitting everyone up.

I agree the coffee is ****ty, I want a location where more people show up again. I just feel like it's been tainted since the last incident and attendance has sucked ever since. The coffee is just getting worse, the old employees made better Joe. But coffee aside, we need people to show up, if it's a move north I'm all for it, I just miss the old days. There are only a couple handfuls of people who show up anyways, not to hard to let people know a location change.

That is all about the weather.

Aside from this past weekend, the weather has been pretty ****ty.

As the weather evens out and warms up attendance will go back up. No one wants to go hang out in the cold. Sure there are a few of you that are diehards... but I am a ***** and I am sure there are a ton others like me.

Moving it won't do a thing for attendance if the weather still sucks.

It was like this towards the end of summer last year, maybe now it has something to do with weather. But last year when weather was good, people weren't showing cause of the vibe created following the drama that went down. Still kinda feels like this, I just want some action.

Maybe there are more people like me that don't really want to go because it is too far south.It was stupid to move it that way anyways why would you not want it central where there is more of a chance that people will show up.

last time I went there were 10 cars there. how is that a problem or a loss if we move it? so the 4 guys that show up once a month won't get the memo? we can move the location, start a new CnC and actually get the word out. We need a marketing person is all.

I know this would be the exact same if it were currently in Ogden. Beople would be bitching it's to far north and wanting it changed because only 5 people show up consistantly.
