    Just wanted to let everyone know that I am involved in planning an event in Roswell toward the middle of May (thinking May16th). We're hoping to gain sponsors from a handful of local businesses in Roswell /Alpharetta or anywhere in the Atlanta area. The City of Roswell is raising money for a new SWAT vehicle (around 50K from what i understand) and seeing as how I know a few of the officers in the Roswell PD-and know a few friends who have some really nice cars- I made a suggestion that we have a car show, and they loved the idea. So far - and again we are just in the beginnning stages of planning this- we have a few food vendors already lined up who will be donating food, door prizes, etc. as well as live music and a DJ have also offered their services. I've never arranged one of these before- so any help would be appreciated. It will be open to all makes models etc, and the City of Roswell will be handing out awards for all different classes of vehicles. Anyone with any suggesstions or if you are able to help in any way- please let me know!

    Thanks everyone!!

    I would appreciate anything you would be willing to help with. I'm fairly certain we'll be able to help them raise a few dollars....
    Thanks again!

    Thats true...I wonder if we can make that a stipulation for the funds raised. Actually they have been trying to raise funds for some time, and I know a handful of us live in and around the area- it doesn't hurt to help out the local PD.

    It looks like we have finally cleared a tenative date for this show....May 30th, 2009. It looks like all donations will be a write off through the City of Roswell, and at this time we have a number of potential sponsors lined up. We are considering a donation of around $25.00 (or more) per vehicle to register the day of the show- and as stated we are welcoming ALL types of vehicles. Awards will be presented by the City, and i think there may be some demonstrations by the SWAT team as well...should be pretty cool. We are also trying to get the Fire Department to bring some trucks by for the kids, and there will be (obviously) police cars as well along with some vintage military machines from what i gather.

    Again any help from anyone would be appreciated- more info will poasted as it becomes available!!

    Thanks again!!

    Just wanted to let everyone know we have begun lining up some sponsors etc, and things are in motion. The City of Roswell and the Roswell PD are very apprecaitive and hopes that we can bring a good turnout. Are there any other clubs/marques out there that may want to be involved as I know some of us have a few different makes and models in the stable? If anyone is affiliated with any - please PM me or post here...

    I will keep updating as we get more information!!

    Keep your calendars open for May 30th!

    Thanks

    We have decided on the shopping center where Aqua Blue, Twisted Taco, LA Boxing and Londzells is located (just past the PGA Superstore on the left). It's east on Holcomb bridge right off GA400. These are a handful of the sponsors of the event - and the lot holds around 200 vehicles with plenty of parking for attendees as well. Again - thanks for the support..it is appreciated!!

    UPDATE: We are getting closer to the May 30th car show in Roswell to benefit the Roswell Police Department, and things are moving right along. The folks in the Police Department are really looking forward to a great turnout. We are expecting some interesting vehicles, and there will be a some great food and a live band as well. Should be really nice, and we appreciate everyones support! If anyone needs directions - East off Exit 7 Holcomb Bridge (GA400), go about 1/4 mile and there will be banners and signs pointing the way!

    Thanks!!

    We'll be allowing vehicles in at any time in the AM...show officially kicks off at 11 and runs until 4. We'll be allowing spectators and owners to vote for all classes of cars, and awards will be given prior to the 4PM cutoff to allow people who have other plans that evening make it home at a decent hour.
    There is a really cool jazz club that just opened there as well called Londzells - also Twisted Taco and Aqua Blue- so there will be food and cocktails for those of you who would like to make a day of it.

    Awesome. Lots of cocktails, fast cars, and police. Great combination ;)
    I'll be there, since it's not far for me. Maybe the rain will stay away that weekend.

    I plan on being there, unless I get into the tennis tournament finals that weekend. Does this mean I have to wash my car if I put it in the car show? LOL

    Ciao,
