Northeast Camaro Themed Night at Mark's Classic Cruise in CT
Mark's Classic Cruise is billed as New England's biggest weekly cruise-in. Its staged every Monday night (weather permitting) in East Granby, CT. Anyway, people have asked Mark if they would run a Camaro/Firebird Themed Night again in 2018, and they said that as of yet, no club or group has volunteered to "sponsor" the event so unless somebody does... there won't be one this year.
My understanding of "sponsoring" means that a dozen or so volunteers have to be available prior to opening the gates and their function is to direct cars where to park. IOW, it could be haphazard with Firebirds mixed in with Camaros or try to keep the Camaros in one area and the Firebirds together. Naturally, you can't control the generations because as they arrive you have to park them. I think a trophy is awarded to a car picked by the volunteers (not one of their own of course) for best Camaro and best Firebird. Don't know who pays for the trophies either, haven't got that far.
Don't know if there are a dozen people here willing to volunteer, but I'm posting this for information. My understanding is that volunteers would have to be at Marks around 3PM on the day of the event, usually its all over around 7:30-8:00 PM.
Just as an aside... this past Monday night was a Corvette Themed Night and they had 381 corvettes show up. I believe the total thru the gate number was 853 vehicles. Nice turnout.
Post up if you're interested. I'll be glad to volunteer if we get enough interest.
