Saturday Jan 3rd, 2015
Happy New Year! We will welcome 2015 in with a bang as we start the 8th year of the Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee at the NC Music Factory! It has been an amazing event that just gets better as we grow and continue to include new people and vehicles. It is a great outlet for the car crazed and I hope we continue to have a safe and spectacular event. This Saturday will be chilly and there is a chance of afternoon rain but hopefully it holds off and we can enjoy the morning.
Thank you to all that supported the event by purchasing T-Shirts and donations, with these funds we will be able to support the Sheriff Deputy's presence that keeps our event safe. In the past we have had gracious benefactors in the from of Foreign Cars International, NC Music Factory, Mattie's Diner and Automotive International that have really stepped up to support us, Thank you for your continued support.
Just to restate the rules for those that may have missed it or those that just need a reminder.
Here are the rules:
-Absolutely no burnouts or horse play in the lot or the roads out front. It is irresponsible and safety is a huge concern for us. This is a one strike rule!. Violators will be asked not to return and the mater will be turned over to the CMPD/Sheriff's Dept.
-The Uptown division of the Mecklenburg police department is well aware of our event and will patrol the area. Speeding and unlawful behavior will not be tolerated on the public road out front or on the NC Music Factory's property. 911 will be called if antics prevail and the CMPD will respond!
-No vendors will be allowed to set up tables, booths or tents. As before you can hand out fliers if you wish but no signage or structures allowed.
-Trailers, box trucks and haulers will be asked to use lot #2 for parking, spaces are at a premium and these vehicles take up too much space and maneuvering them around is too high a risk for accidents.
-We need to leave the facilities better than we find them on each visit. NC Music Factory is letting us use this facility free of charge so we need to respect it, there are trash cans throughout the property please do not litter.
-Parking nearest to the Diner is reserved for regular restaurant patrons. We have the other 662 spaces!
-there will be uniformed officers stationed at two points on the property, with one being in the turn lane of the frontage road. We hope this will deter any burnouts, rapid rates of speed and general idiotic moves leaving the parking lot.
-We are asking the bystanders that stand in front of the dinner to disperse, if those leaving don't have an audience of on lookers and video cameras it will greatly decrease the incidents that are possible. There is plenty of room in the parking look to take pictures and see the cars up close.
-Removing the on lookers at the entrance also will reduce the chances of anyone getting hurt by a vehicle that looses control.
Hope for great weather and see you Saturday!
