Good Day to all!
Alright, as some of you know I am in the Marine Corps and I am stationed on Camp Pendleton.
The Marine Corps Ball is coming up for my unit and we are doing a lot of fundraising to get the price of our tickets down to a much lower price or free for the lower ranks, that will be attending. As of right now, the tickets are $100 a person and we need to get this number lower otherwise a lot of the junior Marines will not be able to attend the great festivities that the Marine Corps Ball has to offer them.
My plan for a fundraiser is what it states in the title; a "SoCal Fun Day at the Runway."
The plan is to have 2 lane drag races down the runway.
Here are some of the ideas that have been brought up for the day so far:
When: Saturday, 7 July 2012 (Tentative Date)
Where: MCAS Camp Pendleton, CA
Why: To support our Military and help the Marines of my unit to have a successful Marine Corps Ball.
How: As of now I need names and a phone number, so I can create a list and submit it to my bosses to get this approved.
Cost: Donation of at least $50 per car
This is still in the very beginning stages of planning and I would love any and all support from anyone in the area!
I will be contacting a few motorsport companies in the area to see if they would like to come up and set up a tent so you can see some of their gear or parts.
Please send your contact info to my email: email@example.com
If you have any ideas or would like to help in the planning process please let me know, as I know I will only be able to handle some of this on my own.
Lucky for me I can work with the Military side a little easier than the Civilian side.
