Default 2010 Rally Location?

yeah yeah, I know, way early to think about it....but I may have found a very cool place for the rally this year, only a mile or so away from the normal place. Colorado Mills Mall has a cool area called "the Street", there between the mall and the movie theater. They can close both ends of the street, and we can park our rigs along the street like it is a car show...in essence it could "be" a car show...or a Toyota truck show. We could still have the parking lot on either end for Christo's rig, or have the vendors in the parking lot or the street, tons of options. Plus we have shade, bathrooms, food and drink (including beer), stuff for the kids to do, all within a few feet of our trucks, and expose our cool trucks to the public. I am dealing with the Mall for another project, and I am sure I can get a really good deal on the space, and we can block off as much of the parking lot as we need. Let me know what you think.

Do you think that offers advantages over where we have been doing it? I would worry that Colorado Mills Mall would not be thrilled over the swap meet aspects of our Rally. We have a lot of old, rusty, greasy parts for sale.

I think it has a lot of advantages...

Shade
Bathrooms (closer than a long hike)
A/C close by
Food and Drink close by
Stuff for the kids to do
Stuff for the significant other to do. For those of you with a S.O. that is not excited about the Rally, they can go shop while you hang out with us.
Did I mention Shade?
Photo ops...would love to see all the 40's lined up down the "street"

I know the Events Director and she thinks it is a great idea...and I mentioned the "greasy parts" aspect. As long as we are not leaving huge piles of grease and oil, we should be ok.

It would be more difficult to collect the $5 per truck, but I am sure we could figure that part out...

Just an idea, kinda like Area BFE, a change to shake things up and maybe improve the event a little is all I am thinking about...

A lot of folks have parts on trailers for the swap meet aspect. Where would we put these?

Is this the area Timm? I like the idea, but I wonder if the location really lends itself to how the Rally is setup. For a "car show" atmosphere where people show up, park, and all leave at the end it seems like a great location but when I've attended the Rally people come and go all day long...

Would people coming late, or leaving early, need to park out in a lot or is there enough room on the "street" for people to park, setup, etc. and still have folks driving down the street as the come or go? The street looks pretty wide but with parked vehicles and then people milling around that could be sketchy maybe...

exactly where "The Street" is. But we could also have as much of that parking lot on the south side of the street as we wanted. Maybe use part of the street for FJ Cruisers or 40's or something, and the vendor tents, then everything else in the South parking lot as usual. Still have the shade of the street and there is a small grassy area by the south lot.

If there is no cotton, hazardous pool, sub par facilities, why move it?
