Default UConn Car Club's 10th Annual Car Show - April 14, 2013 @ Rentschler Field



http://www.uconncarclub.com
uconncarclub@gmail.com

The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 10th Annual Spring Car Show on Sunday, April 14th (Raindate: April 21st). Please follow us on twitter or the Facebook event page for updates.

What you need to know:

Location:
Rentschler Field, East Hartford CT
Directly off I-84, use the Silver Lane entrance
(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 will remain open until the beginning of awarding Trophies
Trophies by 1:30-2:00 pm

Price:
$10 per car to show,
$3 per car for spectator parking in separate lot.

Parking:
Due to our move to Rentschler Field for this year’s show, we will no longer be limited to ~600 participants!! If you can make it to the show, you can enter!

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.

Due to the nature of Rentscher Field’s parking lots, we cannot guarantee parking with friends, etc. If you want to park together, make sure to arrive together.

Important: This year spectator parking will be across in a separate lot outside of the lots for registered show cars. If you do not plan to register your car, you will be asked to park in the spectator area. Police Officers and club members will be there to direct you.

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
  • Off Road
  • Supercar/Exotic Sports Cars
  • 2/3 Wheelers

Pre-1980
  • Original
  • Resto-Mod
  • Hot Rod

Specialty Awards
  • Sleeper
  • Best Club (Quality)
  • Club Participation (Attendance)
  • UC3 Choice

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.

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). 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:
- Again, unlike past years, we will NOT be restricted to just 600 participants!
- 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 other amenities.

Sponsors/Vendors
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, please contact the club for further details by email at uconncarclub@gmail.com. We will be able to send you a letter with details pertaining to the packages we are offering for this year’s show. We must ask that all vendors respond before March 1st, so please message us promptly if interested.

Note:
Participate at your own risk
Please forward any further questions or comments also to uconncarclub@gmail.com

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

Just wanted to make a thread and invite everyone - Subies always come highly represented and I'd love to see you guys there! If you all have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask - I'll be checking back here often and providing the best answers I can.

Mods, if this is in a poor area or anything, please don't hesitate to move it.

Thanks for looking!

Less than a month to the show, guys - anyone have any questions or anything?

So far, answers based on popular questions from other forums:

- Propane grills and tailgating setups are ALLOWED, as long as you don't take up obnoxious amounts of space (remember, with entry, you are buying one spot - so we must ask that you don't take up 8 spots with your uber-sweet tailgating setup)
- Alcohol is NOT ALLOWED.
- We will have ample parking for trailers used to bring in show cars.
- The spectator parking fee is only for on-site spectator parking. There is no fee for just spectating if you park off-site.


Again, we are really excited to be hosting the show in a bigger format this year and want to have this be the biggest show in the area. I personally would love nothing more than to have the lot packed with you Subaru guys - so I sincerely hope to see you all there!

Caravan info:

Here's a link to the cruise.

http://goo.gl/maps/Jq1sY

This is the cruise route to the new for 2013 location of the UConn Car Show.
Beginning: Westborough Rest Stop (90 W) - Leaving 7:40am.
1st Stop: Charlton Rest Stop (90 W) - Leaving 8:15am.
2nd Stop: Margarita's Restaraunt (East Hartford, CT) - Leaving 9am.
Final Stop: Rentschler Field (East Hartford, CT) - Show Location.

Hope to see you all there, and PLEASE bring a fastpass. If you don't have one, get one. They're free and in a cruise like this you don't want to be left behind.

This isn't a "freestyle" cruise or any other [insert stupid slang here] type of cruise. If you can not realize that 20+ loud, modded cars are a police magnet, and driving any faster than 70mph is retarded, then this is NOT the group for you to travel with.

Much appreciated man. I ran the show back in 2009 and loved seeing the line of Scoobies drive in and and treating everyone in and outside the show with respect. Hoping to see the 100+ cars from you guys again this year.

There's a ton more parking than years past and honestly I have seen better new cars that were stock than some of the "show" cars that come.
