(Attn Mods: This event is completely for charity, neither TST or Xotic Motorsports is making any money at all off of this, so I hope that the thread will remain open so we can try to help a better cause... thanks.)

Well after a few months of organization, the biggest TristateTuners event of the year is here! The thread is lenghty, but WELL worth the read! Let's make this thing happen! PLEASE DON'T CLUTTER THIS THREAD! Feel free to PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! :mrgreen:
TristateTuners.com Charity Dyno
Sponsored by: Xotic Motorsports
Finally! The hottest event of the summer is now finalized! The fine folks at Xotic Motorsports and TristateTuners.com proudly present the charity dyno event taking place on Sunday June 25, 2006, starting at 9am at Xotic Motorsports in Cochranville, PA. Come join us for a fun filled day of dyno runs, food, music, and friends! And the best part….it’s all for charity!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT IS IT?
This event is taking place to help raise money for a great local charity. It will let the community know that TristateTuners and Xotic Motorsports care and support local organizations.
WHAT IS THE CHARITY AND WHY?
The charity selected for this event is Carol for Heart Inc. “Carol For Heart, Inc. was founded in 2003 to eradicate women’s heart disease through increased awareness and education to women and those in the medical community.” (More info on the charity can be found at www.carolforheart.com Following are reasons for selection of said charity:
-Local Charity (Horsham, PA)
-Carol for Heart is a fairly new charity and will benefit much more from our donation than a large scale/national charity.
-It’s for an exceptional cause!
HOW DOES DYNO’ING CARS MAKE MONEY FOR A CHARITY?
It’s easy! Cars from the forum will be selected to participate in the charity dyno. Once the cars are selected, you will receive an official sponsor form. With this form you get family/neighbors/friends to sponsor your power! For example: You ask your neighbor to sponsor you…..They then decide how much money they will donate for every 1whp you make on the dyno. If the amount they sponsor you for is 10cents per 1 whp and you put down 365whp, they would then donate $36.50 to Carol for Heart Inc. Of course this is JUST AN EXAMPLE, its up to them to decide how much they want to give per whp, and its YOUR responsibility to make sure donations are turned over to TristateTuners. Please give your sponsor a ballpark figure as to what your car will dyno at, so that they aren’t in the dark when you collect the money! It is highly encouraged to pound the pavement and get as many sponsors as you can……more sponsors = more money for the charity!! Your sponsors can also chose to make a flat payment donation although we prefer the money to whp sponsorship. All in all be prepared to collect after the event is over! There will be a 10 day deadline to collect all of your sponsorship donations so we don’t leave the charity hanging, because when it’s said and done this is all for them!
HOW ARE THE CARS PICKED?
The cars for this event will be picked through an application process. By applying to this dyno competition, you are agreeing to be available on said date of competition. We are looking for some serious cars. These cars can come from other sources than TristateTuners (yes local cars are invited to apply that may not be members of TristateTuners). If you have a friend with a strong car and he/she is interested, have them fill an application out! We wanna have the best show possible, and make as much money for charity while we do it! The link for the application is: LINK FOR APP------http://www.tristatetuners.com/index.php?page=charityapp -------LINK FOR APP. All apps will be sent automatically to my email. We will then choose the luck 15 who get to participate…..GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!!!
DO I HAVE TO PAY A FEE FOR MY DYNO RUNS?
There will be a fee for making your runs to pay for the operation/rental of the dyno. Everyone that is participating in the charity pulls will get 2 PULLS MAXIMUM. Xotic Motorsports is being VERY generous in only charging $20 for 2 pulls!!!!!!!!!!! Half of which they are donating to the charity!!!!!!!!!!!! This means that you are essentially paying $10 for 2 pulls and donating your other $10 to the charity! THERE WILL BE NO TUNING DONE DURING THIS EVENT! THESE ARE STRICTLY WHP RUNS, NO TUNING ALLOWED!!!!
IN WHAT ORDER DO THE PARTICIPATING CARS DYNO?
The order in which you dyno your car is going to be random. The order will be done with the “pick a name out of the hat” system. If for some reason you can’t stay for the entire event we reserve the right to bump you up in line. Please be honest though, and these cases will be looked at on a case by case basis.
IF MY CAR ISN’T PARTICIPATING IN THE CHARITY RUNS, CAN I STILL COME AND WATCH?
Heck yeah you can! This event is not only for the cars participating, but for all members of TristateTuners.com! Come on out and check out the wild rides and grab yourself a burger while you’re there. We do not have an infinite amount of space, so this event is reserved for TristateTuners.com members ONLY. Of course you can bring a girlfriend/boyfriend, husband/wife. Please DO NOT cross post this event on any other forum, as these people will not be admitted into the event.
IF IM NOT DYNO’ING FOR CHARITY, CAN I STILL MAKE A DONATION?
Of course! Donations will be accepted from anybody attending and will be HIGHLY encouraged. Remember that this is for a great cause! I know that every member that attends will have at least a few spare dollars. Keep an eye out for members with donation cans, and toss a little something in there for an outstanding charity!
IS THERE A REWARD FOR EARNING THE MOST MONEY FOR THE CHARITY?
You bet! Xotic Motorsports has agreed to donate a $75 gift certificate for the highest money earner!!!!!!! That is equivalent to 4 normal price dyno pulls or 1 hour of labor!!!!!
GROUND RULES FOR THE EVENT
-As always, no burnouts, high revving, or exhibition driving will be tolerated!
- No drugs or alcohol are permitted…PERIOD. If you show up with drugs and/or alcohol you will be IMMEDIATELY expelled from the event, no questions asked.
-No vulgar language or horseplay! We plan on inviting some people from the charity to come out and share the day with us…….DO NOT make a fool out of Tristatetuners.com or Xotic Motorsports. This will result in automatic expulsion as well.
-Nobody will be permitted to be in the dyno bay during test runs unless you are given special permission from Xotic Motorsports. We have a lot of cars to dyno and Xotic is going to be working feverishly to get them all in. DO NOT get in their way!
-Please act like adults! Clean up after yourselves. Do not litter up Xotic Motorsports facilities!
-Most importantly have fun! This will be our first big gathering of the spring/summer season, and it is sure to please!
Once again, a HUGE Thanks goes out to the fine people at Xotic Motorsports! Thank you for making this event possible! If there are any questions concerning the event, feel free to email me at email@example.com or PM me on TristateTuners (sesolcSTi). Let’s make this an event that the tristate area talks about for years to come!
