Exclamation Reading TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY Meet


Next year marks another milestone event for Reading as 2020 will be the 20th Anniversary of the Reading Meet

We have come a long way since that very first one in April 2000.

And, for many of us, the images and memories of the Reading 10th Anniversary Meet is still fresh in our minds, even after a decade.

The surprise appearance of the PPG Pace car, the SRRT Legacy spec. b race cars, Subaru's involvement and much more that made for a great 3 day event. Look at the signup list HERE

Anyway, organizing a memorable meet to rival that one will take a lot of planning, effort, development and enthusiastic volunteers with ideas. Things such as:
  • Contacting Subaru Corporate to try and get their continued involvement
  • Planning for events and other activities (scenic drives, raffle, tech sessions, etc.)
  • Decisions on commemorative merchandise (shirts or hats, window decals, etc.)
  • Finding sponsors willing to donate parts for prizes.
  • Finding a venue for an organized group dinner, and more.

We have done all of this in the past, including raffling off a 5-speed SVX. A couple of sub-committees will be needed. I can even try to negotiate a reserved block of rooms at the Holiday Inn, as I have always done in past years.

A lot of this will have to be done by locals to find opportunities for dinner options, cup-to-date road conditions and detours.

It is never too early to start. Believe me when I say it took more than a year of negotiations with Subaru to get the Pace Car to Reading. Read that story HERE

No expectations or goals. We will not attempting to set attendance records or try to meet or surpass anything we have done in the past. Each Reading if different and has a life of its own. It is all about the people that makes it great.

That's all for now... just planting that seed. Relax, and just let this past Reading soak in.

Either post ideas here or send me a PM if you are inclined. Don't be afraid to speak your mind and become involved; there are no wrong answers

I am 100% committed to help with this in any way that I can. Having contributed to the planning of Reading 4 and 5, I have a little experience. I also now have a second home in Lancaster, PA, and spend about 1/4-1/3 of the month in the area on business. Being fairly local to the event during those times could help me be able to assist.

We MUST take a serious run and making this a fantastic event. We need specific reasons, and even incentives, for people to show up. We also need to make sure to coordinate information across the popular social media platforms, and I believe that we should consider placing ads on social media to draw more attendees. I’m more than willing to contribute to this financially and through any work that I could do.
