BCCC Meeting Notes April 11, 2005 Guests:
Art Carlock, Chief Rector/BPD, Skip Chandler/Kiwanis. They made a
presentation for an upcoming event for PAL (Police Activities League) that is a fundraiser for kids. It is called the “Family Poker Run” and takes place on Sat., May 14th. Event starts at PAL which is located on Cummins on E. 4th Street at around 8am that morning for registration. The poker run is from 11 to 1 with a BBQ afterwards. Drive and show your car and there will be a live band. There will be awards only for the Poker Run with just a show ‘n shine (maybe become a car show next year). For those interested, there will be a pre-event morning
show promo on Wed. morning, May 11th
from 5-7am at the Sonic downtown to
advertise this event. Art also said there will be a grand opening celebration for the Logan’s Roadhouse on California Avenue on May 9th at 4pm with a steak buffet but parking is limited so if you want to bring your car and participate, you need to let him know ASAP. Call him at 616-5655 or go to Hwy99@bakersfieldcvb.org.
Jim Bowman/Arrival Communications & Brian Wiley/Radio talk show
host, financial advisor. They brought a questionnaire to hand out to all Club Reps. to see what they thought of their idea of bringing a complex to Bakersfield to serve car enthusiasts to store their cars/bikes/boats. Cost would be approximately $250-500 per month and facility would have AC/heating and security. They are looking at some property that is approximately 2-3 acres and has the potential to grow.
Charles Ramos, Inside Sales Manager/Bakersfield Blitz & Condors.
They are looking into the idea of incorporating a car show at one of the upcoming Bakersfield Blitz games this season. The event would take place in the Rabobank parking lot and would have approximately 100 spots available for show vehicles. Entering the car show would also give car show participants entrance to that night’s game (4 tickets). Car show would be from approximately 4:30pm-7pm. They were looking at the June 10th game. Sickness Truck Club expressed some interest in sponsoring this show which would get their name on the event (cost to sponsor $500). Cost to enter car show ($30-$40). Winners would get to bring their vehicles into arena at half time and those at the game would vote for the best and winners selected would get a momentary prize. Event Review/Wrap-Up:
2nd Moose “Cruising for a Wish” Classic Car Show, April 2nd, Beach Park. The
