Good Day to all!

Alright, as some of you know I am in the Marine Corps and I am stationed on Camp Pendleton.

The Marine Corps Ball is coming up for my unit and we are doing a lot of fundraising to get the price of our tickets down to a much lower price or free for the lower ranks, that will be attending. As of right now, the tickets are $100 a person and we need to get this number lower otherwise a lot of the junior Marines will not be able to attend the great festivities that the Marine Corps Ball has to offer them.

My plan for a fundraiser is what it states in the title; a "SoCal Fun Day at the Runway."

The plan is to have 2 lane drag races down the runway.


Here are some of the ideas that have been brought up for the day so far:

Who: TBD.

When: Saturday, 7 July 2012 (Tentative Date)

Where: MCAS Camp Pendleton, CA

Why: To support our Military and help the Marines of my unit to have a successful Marine Corps Ball.

How: As of now I need names and a phone number, so I can create a list and submit it to my bosses to get this approved.

Cost: Donation of at least $50 per car




This is still in the very beginning stages of planning and I would love any and all support from anyone in the area!

I will be contacting a few motorsport companies in the area to see if they would like to come up and set up a tent so you can see some of their gear or parts.

Please send your contact info to my email: [email protected]

If you have any ideas or would like to help in the planning process please let me know, as I know I will only be able to handle some of this on my own.

Lucky for me I can work with the Military side a little easier than the Civilian side. :D

Just so you guys know, I am still working on details and I will have to contact MCCS (Marine Corps Community Services) tomorrow to make sure there are no lines that I'm crossing that they need to be involved in. They like to have their hands in everything that has to do with outside money coming in.

Total head count so far is 21.

I have this posted on:
- LS1GTO.com
- Luxury4Play.com
- ForeverPontiac.com
- SoCalMuscle.net
- LS1Tech.com
- LS1LT1.com
- MBJunkies.com
- SoCalEuro.com
- CarGathering.com
- GMEternal.com
- G8Board.com

With that said, a lot have said they are interested, however, they have not emailed me with their info to add to the list. If I were to add all of those together we would be closer to 40-45 people.

UPDATE: I have a meeting set up with the Air station SAFETY officer to get all this drawn up to present to the Commanding Officer and to make sure that everything will be covered security and safety wise. Since he is the one that sets up that type of stuff for the motorcycles that have this done, he already knows the routes we need to take.

The meeting is on the 26th. So I won't have much more updates until then.

Unless, does anyone know where I'd be able to rent/borrow the equipment for a Chrstmas tree and a time slip generator for a 3/4 mile drag set up? :D
