Organizing a 928 OC Sponsored Event was created by adminVB
I am quite pleased to say I developed the 928 OC program of sponsoring local events. From 2003 to 2010 we have sponsored a few dozen local events, perhaps a dozen larger regional/national events, and 3 OCICs.

The dollar amount we sponsor each event for has varied, and is primarily based on the size of the event, with the number of 928 owners in attendance being the most important consideration.

The required criteria for having an event sponsored is:
1. 928 OC board approval, voting is electronic and can be view by members at forums.928oc.org/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=11
Voting is by board members only.
2. 928 OC Adveristing and Design Chairperson approval of the logo use and placement.
3. The person coordinating the sponsorship with the 928 OC is a 928 OC member.

The following are not (yet) required, but are asked of all event coordinators:
1. Hang the 928 OC banner at the event, it will be shipped to the event organizer, and it is requested that it be shipped to the next event.
2. Make the attendees aware of the 928 OC sponsorship. Of course the logo on the "enduring memento" helps with that (commonly a shirt or hat).
3. Make 928 OC membership applications available to attendees (prospective members).

If you have are interested in organizing a local event, please let me know!

I want to say thank you to the 928OC for their sponsorship of the 3rd 'Sharks at the Beach' event. We had it this Saturday 10/9/2010 and it was a huge success.

We had about 18 or 20 people and probably 15 sharks there. The weather was perfect, the company was great and the drive/lunch/gtg went off perfectly.

Everyone loved the goodies from 928OC as well as our two other sponsors: 928sRus and Autowerks9.

Thanks again!

Very nice shot Mike. More pics. are always good.Congratulations on a successful event. Hopefully next year will allow me to visit more than one event. Meeting new people with a shared passion for the 928 is always a good time.

On behalf of the board, you are quite welcome Mike.

We thank you for organizing the event, as without the grass roots efforts it simply wouldn't happen. Our goal is to encourage and support such events.

Please remember to remind us next year so we can help again!

Hey Stan,

Well I just spoke to Adam last night and we had such a great time we've decided to hold a semi-annual event.

We're already planning for the one in the spring.

The theme will be 'Wake up your shark' (after winter storage for most) and the tech session will consist of complete brake bleeds for anyone interested, pad replacement if necessary and also a wheel bearing replacement for as many as we can get done. (Adam has it down to a science and can do a pair in just a couple of hours now, the right tools are KEY).

So when we pick a date and start polling the local 928ers we'll let the OC know how many we expect and maybe you can help sponsor us again.

If you want a mentor to help you to run an event in your area, we should be able to find one. Most events are organized by the efforts of one person...

We're getting pretty good at running Frenzy by committee... but you need to choose the right committee.

I am sponsoring a car show in Athens GA on Oct 20th. I would like to extend an invitation to all 928 owners. Participation will make you eligible for "928 mini meet winner" plaques to be selected by fellow 928ers. This is a show for the benefit of the Athens Technical College Alumni Association. If the club has an interest in extending an invite to all regional sharks, I will take care of everything else.

That sounds awesome! I hope it works out and you have many 928 guys there. We have had a few new members from GA joining over the last year so there should be some new folks in your area!

2016 is looking like it could be the biggest ever for Sharks In Ontario.
I would like to inquire about OC sponsorship of the event. Currently 13 cars on the list.

More details to come.

Hi Bill,

Sorry I'm running so behind on this. Form has been filled out and submitted. Please let me know if you need anything else from me.

My T-shirt design needs To go to print on July 8th. If you can email me a vector logo I can add it to the shirt and submit for the OC's approval.

Cheers,

Adam

Hey, Adam
I've forwarded it to Marc White, Event Chairperson and cc:d Jarrod and our Secretary, Austin. They will process the event application and vote.

Thanks for putting energy into this event; I'm sure it will be great!

Cheers,
Bill

I am trying to create an event "Sharks in the Badlands" (South Dakota) for July 17-19 2020. I have about 13 folks committed to coming so far. Would this be something the 928 OC would help sponsor?

Thanks,

Harvey Carlisle
