Planning Stage - West Coast Cruise

Mitch Toll has emailed the artwork along with an updated one for 2018.  It's the same as last year, but the year has changed.

And, no Will, it's not a marijuana leaf.  I think you may have smoked a bit too any palm trees! LOL

If anyone has any thoughts about changing the artwork for 2018, please feel free to email it to me a sample you've created.  Otherwise, I think Mitch's artwork was well received and seems to be perfect for this gathering.  Maybe we could add a street taco to it? BwaHaHaHa!!!

I just worked up some quick Ideas to get the shirt design going, if anyone else has any ideas post them. I had to work quick to get back to the wife but will come up with another idea I can spend more time on. I made a quick design for SOC also but we can put anything on the front/backs.socsoc-shirts

Gentlemen, I think a new year deserves a new shirt.

I'm not pitching the old design - I sent it to Scott - @slofuzz - simply because he asked.

I think, in trying to break Terry Nuckels' world speed record for whipping together a West Coast Big Do, he didn't want the absence of a shirt design to hold things up.

So, no offense at all is taken if there's a new shirt.

We have never been factions of short sleeves and long sleeves, of crew necks and turtlenecks, of old shirts and new shirts. We are, and always will be, the united shirts of SLO.

 

Awesome work Scott @OCC! I know I'm a choosey beggar, but if you're really opening up the conversation for direction, here are my 2 cents.

When I picture my perfect 2018 SLO shirt, I picture a clean graphic like the attached images (all from Etsy), with "West Coast Cruise 2018" in smaller text. Maybe the SOC logo (as you have it) on the sleeve.

Or, in a totally different direction, something inspired by a 1950s-1960s Porsche advertisement. A shirt that looks like it could've been printed in 1957, if it didn't have the 2018 date on it. I attached some examples of inspiration. Here's a style I think could work, but with an "18" and a Speedster.

For what it's worth. Otherwise, very happy to wear whatever you all come up with. I agree with @Sacto Mitch, "We are, and always will be, the united shirts of SLO."

Hello all 

Can someone please tell me more about this gathering / event? 

The shirts look cool and the 2018 video was inspiring, I would love to attend.  Even the drawing for the chicken dinner sounds exciting..  But it looks like someone has won it already....  Is there another chance to win?

My only trepidation would be if anything was poorly implemented I may have to think twice ..  but after reading further looks like Mr Fuzz has it well handled.. 

best regards

This is a mostly family friendly event. A few years back we hadba guy pressing hit butt cheeks on random truck tonneau covers.  We also had a crooked cop and his kid show up a few times.  They fleeced the participants of their hard earned money. On occasion the hotel staff has to fish celphones out of urnals. There were FALSE reports of one old guy who threw up in the bushes. In the early days the hotel was overrun with rabid rodents. One attende was almost mauled to death. True story.

All in all... Aside from that? A good time.

****NEWS FLASH****

Our rooms at the Quality Suites have gone up, but a deal was made so not as much.

Quality Suites is now at $279/ night through all the travel booking sites.  The group rate discount is only 12% which would make it $245/ night.  Our deal was $229/night, but wait!  It gets better!!!

We are now booked at the Quality Suites for $219/night.  The hotel someone suggested is still going for over $260/ night without breakfast, drinks and suites.

We have 30 rooms blocked until April 27th (Friday).  If you miss that date, you're on your own.  If you think you want to go, but aren't sure you can make it, call and book and, if needed, cancel before the cancellation date of 2 days prior.  Of course, contact me before you cancel since I may have someone waiting for a room and we can transfer it to them (happened last year). But, the simple thing is DON'T WAIT!

Hotel info is as follows:

Quality Suites

1631 Monterey St.

San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

(805)541-5000

Tell them you're in the "SOC Group" for the special rate.

Last things...

1) I'll leave this thread going until January before I switch over to a new thread as mentioned above.  When I do, I'll repost the hotel info for those who didn't see this thread. Everything else to know will be in that one thread and this one can fall off the board.

2) Tell everyone you know about the dates and info so they can start looking at the site and get geared up for the next shindig! 

Looking forward to seeing everyone.  P.S. I still gotcha early Dundernuckel!!! LOL

Bump, bump, bumpity, bump.

Hold on a second Ted.  Only people who actually go to this event are allowed to dis it like this! 

***UPDATED PHONE NUMBER***

Apparently I made an error in posting the phone number for the hotel.  I found this out after GERD complained he couldn't get in touch with the hotel and, after leaving several messages, no one would call him back!  Hmmm??! Wonder what he said on the message that scared them from calling!  And here I accused him of being a dyslexic accountant.

Kirk and Mary Duncan are in! It's been a very long time since we've been. Looking forward to seeing familiar faces  are u guys still doing Raffle etc ?

Awesome! Yes! The raffle is still going strong. Vince tries to read the winning numbers and GERD always ends up in handcuffs...

@calmotion, what part of Nor Cal do you reside? A decent size of like-minded plastic potato owners around Sacramento. Last year we headed down from a Vacaville starting point, then headed down 80 to 680 and on to 101 where we continued south to 152, where we picked up @Bob Hampton and @Ryan in NorCal and headed inland to pick up highway 25 for a Mr. Toad's Wild Ride before heading back to 101 and down to Paso Robles to meet up with @slofuzz@Fast Eddie@GERD, among others, for lunch. Then we all headed down to the host hotel.

We can start a separate thread to plan if anyone is interested in repeating this. What do you say? @Rick99GSX, @Dave Mitchell? @Sacto Mitch, are you doing it this year? @TRP, are you and Alexis free this year or kidbound?
