Last cruise of 2015


« on: January 18, 2014, 10:24:27 AM »

Last year I accidently bought Shaw tickets during the annual show weekend.  We're looking to book for our Annual Shaw Festival and wine tour so could you please tell me which weekend the CISO show is so I don't screw up again.

 It's always been the weekend before the Labour Day weekend. So for 2014 it will be on Sunday August 24.

 We'll have to soon schedule a meeting to get started on preparations.

Yes, It's always the last Sunday in August.
 I have already started organizing and will be meeting with the Region of Waterloo soon.
The one thing we need to concentrate most on is promotions.
If anyone has any good ideas we should discuss them next Saturday.

To draw the crowds, we need known entertainment. Then, wide spread advertising. How does it go? if you build it they will come.

How about some commitment from Steve as to specific cars at the show? So they can be worked into the promotion?

Lastly, a GOOD website. The website can be hosted on my server. (Meaning free)

Wouldn't known entertainment cost big money because your'e going to need someone known to more
people than just the folks in the K W area. I also think the music has to appeal to a larger number of
people than what your own personal style of music does. I think Mike and Gareth like Bluegrass and
similar music which is OK, but not everyone cares for it.
Joe, remember that band they had at that cruise you and I went to last year in that trailer/camping
park in Flamboro ? The band there was really good. They could play anything that was asked of them.
I gave their info to Mike at our last meeting.

I suppose that means advertisers or sponsors of some type are required?

Even though the show was fun last year, I suspect there was not enough... ooomph? maybe it should be a swap meet too? Just thinking out loud here.

Outside the box thinking may be required?

The region of Waterloo won't give us a flea-market permit, Mike & Gareth, myself talked about this last year. Swap meet means "flea-market" to the region of Waterloo, no way around it.

Is that just a rule for those grounds or in all of KW? If it is a general rule for all of KW then maybe it would be worth considering moving it outside of the area? I despise government that puts up roadblocks like this. It's their job to assist in promoting the area. I always see in the news, the government created jobs blah blah blah. It's not their prerogative to CREATE jobs but to remove the impediments to business.

I wouldn't want to see a flea market/swap meet venue at the club's show. This show is for Cadillac,
an upscale vehicle.
In my eye, flea market/swap meet vendors are usually dirty unkempt scrappers in beat up old trucks
peddling old junk parts, rusty tools and others selling "T" shirts and cheap jewelry, not the sort one
would associate with the Cadillac brand.
However I could see a some Cadillac owners bringing a few of their own Cadillac parts and indiscreetly
selling them from trunk of their cars. (Psst, hey buddy ya but some Caddy hubcaps cheap ?)

The region donates money towards the event for having at that location.  Getting established there was a big deal that we probably shouldn't give up without a lot of consideration.

I agree.
We have to keep this a class event because of the Cadillac brand. We must not cheapen it in any way.

I agree Ronnie. There sure don't appear to be any upscale Cadillac parts vendors around here, or really any Cadillac parts vendors at all. The problem I see, as a newcomer, there weren't very many people showing cars and there were even less non Cadillac owners coming around to see the cars. Maybe that's just the way it is.
