    Re: 3rd Annual Alt Fuels Cruise-In at Thunder on the Lot!

    Thunder News

    We will be in the same location this year as last year, the R.Rex Paris building. It's easily spotted from anywhere on the fairgrounds due to the ginormous clock tower on the front of it.

    We will require everyone entering the Cruise-In to register (for insurance purposes). Those registering early will receive a commemorative Thunder Dash Plaque. All vehicles inside the fairgrounds must register, with the exception of those registering as vendors. Early registration is prior to June 6, 2009 and is $20 (a charitable donation to the kid's). You may register at the gate for $25.

    Registration covers both days and includes admittance to the main concerts by Eric Burdon and the Animals, Peace Frog, Hollywood All-Stars and The Skinny Little Twits. There has always been this registration, but they've been letting me slide for the past 2 years. What the heck, it's all for a great cause, right? I'll post the registration form here shortly. Print and mail in as soon as possible, along with your tax deductible donation to "The Kid's Charities of the Antelope Valley". Vendor application is attached.

    *You may also include a blank check made out to "Curtis Martin's Retirement Fund" (optional).

    This year I will be awarding several trophies in several categories.
    1) Trophy for the oldest cng vehicle at the Cruise-In.
    2) Trophy for the highest mileage on a cng vehicle.
    3) Trophy for the best modifications to a cng vehicle (interior/exterior)

    All trophy winners will also receive a Thunder T-Shirt.

      I see the form and it says the fee is 250$. What do we need to do to let them know we are the CNG folks?

        Saw the form, forgot to read the post...
        This is the vendor form. This would only apply to vendors, like John, who are displaying at the event.

        I am still trying to get the registration form for all of you in a format I can post, hopefully tomorrow (Tues). Attendees of the Cruise in are only a $20 donation (tax deductible) to the kids if you register by June 6. $25 after, or at the gate.

        Cruisers should plan to arrive before 3pm Saturday, and 9pm on Sunday. Anyone coming in after those hours are going to have to go through the whole mess we had last year, or may not be let in to the grounds, other than on foot through the front gate. They want to avoid people driving on the grounds once the crouds are let in for safety reasons. Fortunately we are in the back, so I would have to leave the event and escort any stragglers in, if they will even let them in.

          I'm sure glad someone else liked the Miss CNG idea.

          This approach would draw a massive intrest to the CNG area.

          We also need something with massive Horsepower like the Blue Flame rocket car to bring in the crowds.

          A suped up high HP 6 second CNG car would draw in the younger Import tuners and Hoursepower junkies.

          The import tuners always have a Hot wet T shirt contest at all there car events.

            So whose going to sponsor the Miss CNG Contest?
            We would need trophy-prizes, whatever is needed for the contest.

            Sponsors pay for these items, or provide them.

            If someone steps up, I'll see about getting it approved.

              Goodness gracious Curtis - 2,001 posts to date... you are truly an Eco-vangelist!

              I'd love to see scheduled sessions on grassroots organizing and political outreach. There are several important bills pending which deserve this community's attention.

                That information is usually posted in the Lounge Forum, or the Clean Cities Forum. This is the Thunder thread... does that mean you're coming to the event this year? (just trying to get back on topic).

                  I'll be there.

                  My suggestion is that information sessions be conducted at the Cruise-In. It seems like a great opportunity to rally and educate the large number of attendees about current and upcoming topics important to the NGV community.

                      Re: 3rd Annual Alt Fuels Cruise-In Ride/Room Share!

                      The clock's running down and there's
                      10 days left to Thunder!

                      If you haven't gotten your early registration mailed in, do it NOW! No sense in paying the other $5 at the gate when you could use it to buy a beer... or two, right Hal?


                      For those of you staying the weekend, either in a hotel or bringing a trailer, there are a couple of people that might be wanting to share costs. I know Todd from cngprices can only come up for a day unless someone can donate a spot for him to crash Saturday night.

                      I know some of you are having a rough time of it these days and a little community help from our members might make this trip possible, even when you didn't think you could make it.

                      So if you can give a ride up Sat or Sunday, can share a room, whatever, post it here and make your final arrangements through the "Personal Message" feature.

                      So, Post where you're driving in from Point of origin), and
                      Date/s you plan on being at the event, and
                      how many you'd be willing to bring, etc.
                      I know there are members coming from Az, Ut, N. Ca, San Diego, and around So Cal.
                      Lets help everyone come that wants to and make this a great event again this year!

                      Anyone coming in early Saturday can help me with the setup... if they want to.

                        I just made a reservation at the Motel 6, they still have rooms available. There is also a Super 8 right next door.
                        I should arrive at the fairgrounds around 11-12.

                          The attachment gives a detailed run down of the events at this years Thunder on the Lot.

                          With only 6 days and counting, it's time to send in your registration to get into the event. Registration is for both days and the concerts are included.

                          Every year this event gets better and better. Don't miss out!

                            OK, I didn't make the early registration, so does that mean I can't access the PDF files on the event and fairgrounds layout? I was thinking about still coming out and helping.

                            I get the vBulletin Message:

                              Eloo,
                              I emailed you the pdf, don't know what's going on with your access.
                              I'm sure Curtis would appreciate any help he can get setting up.
                              Have a great time.
