This list is by no means complete. So, please make suggestions, or bring up anything that you may think is important or overlooked.

I will be taking the lead on all of the “Before We Arrive” items. But will definatley need some help. So far I’m working with Jason and Ken (of course), as well as bluebyutoo and Cobrawannabe. Jason and I will be asking for help in different areas from you. However if you see something you WANT to help in, please speak up.

A HUGE Thank You to everyone that has agreed to be on the Team this year! The event simply would not happen without you!

I'll provide the first update:

1. I contacted Ford Racing and am waiting to hear back from them about possible Guest Speakers. Ken mentioned that he may be able to get Steve Saleen.

If you have any suggestions for others, please let me know!

2. I will be contacting fifteen52 about getting one or more of the Project STs to the event.

bluebyutoo may be able to get the Green Filter Focus ST that was shown at SEMA.

Again, if you have suggestions or contacts, let 'er rip!

Do you want everything were doing listed here? Limbo? I'll definitely help if not do everything for that. I can help assembly and distribution of goody bags.

-Matt

AFAIK, there is no Limbo this year. Jason?

And, I'll make a note of you as being able to help out with Goodie Bags. Thanks!

I still have 200 MK3 Focus Reusable Red Bags from Ford in the attic for goody bag bags BTW.

The Tjin Edition ST and MRT Fiesta ST from SEMA should be at the event so those two would be easy to get, green filters will probably be as well but it may be locked in a building at that time.

Wasn't too sure about the limbo. Ken thinks it would be a good idea. I'm not sure. Maybe we should post a poll and see what people think?
I say poll it but I think its still a differentiator over FailFest, especially beings they have been copying what has been done at FR as of recent.

Maybe the Tanner Foust edition or UTI Gulf edition ST?

UTI Gulf = Tjin Edition ST

Foust Edition would be hard as they really don't do a lot of national marketing with any of their vehicles at events. The barely do any on the west coast even.

Tanner however is a contact of mine and is familiar with Carlisle as he has been here before when he worked for ESPN back in the day.

I say email or call Tanner. He might have the car sent out for the show. He's really into the ST, not just fluffing it.

I'll shoot an email, but don't count on it, I would honestly say I'm 99.99% sure it wouldn't happen. Cost for transport from that far is about $5K not counting any other stuff for a "star car". Plus once again they really don't have a road show program.

My buddy Aaron Vaccar is interested though with his Slammed Transit (uses alot of Focus suspension parts), his last gen Fiesta (slammed and stanced), and his MK3 Focus though. All SEMA show cars, just working on getting him out for the Ford show anyway not in relation to FR.

I won't be able to get to the event until Friday around 1:00 PM. Once I park my car, I'm willing to help in any way I can with any event. I have a mega phone that I can bring if you want it for organizing the cruise to the snowfield
