Forum Show in the works.

Post by Rblevins on Sun Sep 04, 2011 2:58 pm

Ok so a few of us have been approached with the idea to make some money for the forum and to put that money to use for forum Get togethers and outings fro everyone. There is money to be made for the forum outside of just asking for donations, and I dunno bout yall but I hate just asking for donations. So the idea has arisen to host a forum sponsored show.

I myself actually hosted a benefit show last year in June, to raise money for a few familys that lost some family members due to drug overdose, And it turned out a hit I had about 50 cars show up and was a blast. I put alot of time and money in the show but came back out of it with my money back out of the show, and had hundreds to donate to the 3 families.

Now with that being said It would not be a benefit show but we as a forum would donate some of the proceeds to a charity of our choice as this would not only get us out there but would also help us make for a good cause in the community. And the remainder would be to help us grow as a forum and take us on group outings and pay for some of our dinners we do on a weekly basis.

I am extremely interested in doing something like this but would like to get some ideas on who would be interested in making this idea go further. Could be a great way to get your name out there as a Vender, Shop, Photographer, Etc...

A few of us even talked about going to a few venders here in Chattanooga and talking with them about making an appearance, such as All Star Tint and Alarm, King Audio, Tuners Car Audio, the Vw dealership, Etc..

Trophies and plaques are inexpensive and food can be purchased in bulk. Only things left are sound for the show and a fairly large place to host an event such as this oh and of course we would have to have some form of security. And The Sound as we know it Is covered by "Studio B Productions". Now we have a few ideas in the works and would like some more as well. (Keep in mind anywhere by the mall is almost out because of having to have such a large insurance requirement to host there. And just about any parking garage down town is owned by the city and that is almost going to be a definate NO from the city due to city regulations.)

But with that all said and out in the open Please post your ideas here as this is becoming more and more real as the ideas come in. And for those of you wishing to move this forward please contact me here with what your looking to do to make this go off with a great turn out. It will help us out as a show and as a forum to get just that much bigger. We have a date we are kind of pushing towards and would also like your input on this as well, the date is as follows The saturday before Halloween Which is the 29th of October or the Saturday prior to that which is the 22nd of October. Please Let us know you thoughts.

THANKS,
ADMIN and MODERATORS

hmm me and a friend were discussing getting together and trying to get a show at the tn pavillion at finley stadium plenty of parking for show cars, vendors, and spectators. I think it would be a great spot. Also get in touch with local radio stations.

Yea Radio stations cost an arm and a Leg to have present just from experience from working at a haunted house in ooltewah it cost like 3k for 4 hours but finley stadium is going to be one of those who requires a fairly large insurance requirement unfoortunately I tried that one last year. This is going to have to be something similar to a school or a larger business parking lot that would let us do it there, the one I hosted was at Lakeview FortO. High school. and they were free of charge. just had to have a generator for sound equipment.

Ok cool I mean we wouldnt need a dj or anything bc my dad owns a lighting and sound company. but we wouldnt mind a little free advertising.

But First things first we would have to have a location and a date set in stone....

Yupp that and Hot dogs is what we used for the lasst show and it was a blast man. We had a few people grilling and we also bought a few boxes of those kinds of chips and a few 24 packs of cokes. and if we ran out we sent someone to get more with earned money.

if we could find a river front location with a good city backround would make for some really good pics as well. also what would you guys think about having hats made? my great aunt works in a shirt and hat place that prints images on hats and shirts i could ask her im sure she still works there

Would be nice for a sale point of view at a show but would have to be something else that funds had to buy if someone were to come up with a sick shirt idea something like brian had on the other night at BWW. This may be considered but you have to think would it be worth the profit we would make?

Lets focus on the location and getting thing to fall together before we start pickin at the details of making shirts and stuff.

Location. (Where, When, No insurance Requirements.)
When (Date.)
Food.
Costs
Advertisement.
Volunteers.

Get the idea. These is what would have to happen before we could move on. and then get shirts printed and get the vendors on board.

i work at a print shop that does shirts and hats like mentioned above and they might be able to put up a tent and print shirts for us that have some of the money made go to us and they might be down being that its advertisement for their company too..if you've been to riverbend downtown the tent that prints all the riverbend shirts is the company i work for..

i know shirts is a last priority and alot has to be done before shirts come into play but its still a thought and might bring some money to the event.

Only thing that would keep us out and not being able to is if we had to come up with any kind of insurance to be able to do this. The budget is going to come from us as a forum.
