    Question Your Suggestions/Ideas Are Needed

    As you know, SoCAPS has four "official" club meetings a year (we plan one meeting per quarter) and several smaller meetings that members can set up on their own.

    We are a family oriented club and attempt to balance the meetings between diesel/truck events and family/social get togethers.

    We have planned events all over Southern California to accommodate all our members and where they live.

    Here are some of the events and locations where we have had meetings:
    Sunrise Ford, Fontana (our anniversary meetings)
    Castaic Lake (barbecue, picnic)
    Advanced Flow Engineering-AFE (intake air manufacturer - Corona)
    Toys For Trucks (aftermarket/custom parts)
    Rolling Big Power (Aftermarket/custom parts)
    Lake Elsinore (barbecue, picnic, camping, boating)
    J & D Performance (dyno, aftermarket parts)
    Wine Tasting and Barbecue - Temecula
    Rancho/Tenneco Suspension Manufacturing Plant (Long Beach)
    Poker Runs (Fontana to Las Vegas - over night)
    Diversified Minerals (equipment manufacturing plant - Oxnard)
    Turbonetics (turbo manufacturing plant - Simi Valley)
    Deaver Springs (after market/custom suspensions - Santa Ana)
    Diesel Tech (diesel truck repair and custom work - San Jacinto)
    OC Diesel Shop (diesel truck repair and custom work - Orange County)
    Sound Advice (aftermarket truck sound and video - Mission Viejo)
    LACR Drag Races (drag racing competition - Saugas)
    STC Performance Truck & RV (aftermarket custom work - Santa Fe Springs)
    Diesel Hot Rod Association event at the Las Vegas Speedway

    We are always looking for new locations and companies to host our meetings.

    If you have a suggestion for a location or type of event for a meeting, please let us know by posting below or send me a PM.

    Your suggestion/idea will be considered and may result in a meeting.
    Conventional locations and companies are always welcome, but wild and crazy and "out of the box" ideas will also be considered.

    So, let us know your thinking!!

    Note: We are also always looking for new sponsors. If you know of a potential sponsor, please tell us about them. You can post in this thread or PM me or BWilliams with the info!

    We look forward to your input!!! :)

    Here's a couple quickies off the top of my head.....Have not made any calls yet for group information, but need to see if anyone is interested.

    Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA
    Petersen Automotive Museum

    Nethercutt Collection/Museum in Sylmar, CA
    The Nethercutt Collection

    Both are car museums and not truck/diesel specific stuff but great places for car nuts to visit.

    The other option would be a club night at Toyota Speedway. I sent them an email to get current information, but the last time I was there for a club night, we all got to park right next to the grandstands so that people could check out the trucks, 2 parade laps around the track before the races started, and 2 free tickets per truck to get into the races. I will update when I get an email back with more info.

    Great suggestion!! I had been there a couple of times long ago and used to know the head administrator!

    Thanks!! :)

    I like the Poker Runs...but the recent participation (to be blunt) has been piss poor!!!!
    The last Poker Run (4th Annual) was held on August 21, 2011 and only 9 trucks signed up (and, of course, less than that actually showed up!!)
    The Run was a local run to area sponsors...not the overnight ones like in the past to Las Vegas.
    I had asked for some members to help out with the Run...I needed a minimum of three "Dealers", two people volunteered!!

    I'd love to do a Poker Run, but I just don't see the participation.
    For a successful Run, I'd like to see 20 trucks running, and at least 5 volunteers to help with the event.

    Believe me, I look at and evaluate all your suggestions!!
    I thought a good one from Loren at Diesel Tech was the tour of the Aircraft Carrier berthed in San Diego...but when I looked into it, it cost $25 per person to get on board (for a family of two adults and two kids, that was $100 and then add dinner and fuel...), and there were no guided tours on the weekends. Plus a lot of us would like to spend the night plus dinner. I felt the whole package became too expensive for a non guided tour.

    I also looked into a tour of the Battleship Iowa, berthed here in Los Angeles. At this time, there are no guided tours.

    So, I'm trying to come up with events and really need and appreciate your suggestions.
    And, in addition to suggestions, if anyone would like to help out setting up an event, your help would sure be appreciated!!!

    How about a visit to Full-Traction Suspension. They are a bit far north but it should be worth the trip, they offer 4 link conversions for those of us with leaf sprung front ends and undoubtedly bad @ss metal fab shop.
