Just a thought/ input welcome

So I was thinking of my car and how awesome it is and thought how can I make it more awesome....

So I came up with an idea...

this is for the colorado g8'ers, how bout a once a month meet lets just say the first saturday of evedy month... And everyone brings 30 dollars. We put all the money in a pot and conduct a raffle... and if u win the raffle your name wont be back in the raffle for two months... If this were to be successful though we'd need a strong 100% commitment to the group.

Once again just a thought. Any opinions?

If we had a bigger active group in the area it might work.

Monthly get togethers would be swell...

So to be a bigger group we could have more cars that arent g8's... We'd need to find them though...

30 seems a bit stout. Sounds like fun though. We've always enjoyed meeting up with the others when we've been able to make it. I really think that one of the biggest issues is the logistics.....We are all spread out across the entire I-25 corridor --Springs to Fort Collins and beyond. If somebody is willing to make a schedule and post in places not just here, you may get more participation....I am not on this board a lot....I do more via email and facebook.... That's my 2 pennies....

'09 SBM GXP A6...CAI, Headers & Exhaust, mild cam. - 13.04 at 106.34MPH at Bandimere,
'08 IOM G8 GT...CAI, Cam, Headers, Tune, NOS -11.80 @ 122.2 MPH in Pueblo.
'11 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
'99 Grand Prix GTP...some mods...Best ET was a 12.80 at Bandimere,
'94 T/A VorTek Super Charged & NOS - Best ET 10.2, quickest MPH 134.9 & still street legal!

I think it will turn into a management nightmare, does the new guy who just showed up to his first show get to win the pot when the guy who has shown up for 6 months hasnt won anything yet, and some people have won twice or 3 times in that time period?
