I've updated the sign up list: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=1180

We have 77 cars registered now. In less than two weeks, I'll be making the final decisions on the classes for the show. The 3/Ses and DSMs have really light sign up numbers. Get signed up if you want to see your Mitsu platform have its own class.

later,
Curt

We've had a lot of sign ups in the last week. We are now up to 92.

Next week I'll be finalizing categories. The 3/Ses and 4G Eclipses are looking pretty weak this year. Time to get you Mitsu buddies to sign up!

Also, because of the lack of sponsors, I'm going to be forced to charge at least $6 this year. I haven't finalized this price yet, but its looking very likely.

Curt

I've been looking at the sign up numbers. We have 106 so far. Here are some of the numbers by category:

1g 3/S 7
2g 3/S 11
1g DSM 6
2g DSM 16
3G Eclipse 17
4G Eclipse 6
Conquest/Starion 8
Evo 1-9 12
EVO X and Ralliart 12

I think we'll keep all of these categories, plus the "other", category this year. But with the low numbers for 1g 3/S, 1g DSM and 4G Eclipse, we'll just give a 1st place trophy for those three categories. Nine years ago, we could easily get 40-50 3/Ses and 40-50 DSMs at the Cookout. Times have changed!

Curt

Here are the finalized categories for the car show:

90-94 DSM
95-99 DSM
00-05 Eclipse/Stratus coupe
06-12 Eclipse
91-93 3/S
94-99 3/S
Evo I to IX
Evo X and 09+ Ralliarts
Starion/Conquest
Other Mitsu
The "Gene Helms" Cleanest Car Overall

They are the same categories as last year. But this year the 90-94 DSM, 91-93 3/S and the 06-12 Eclipse categories will just have a first place trophy. Of course the Cleanest Car Overall just has first. The other categories will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies. Also there is a Long Distance trophy. We will not be doing slow drags this year do to the tight space.

Only 4 more days until the Cookout. We are up to 134 signups: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=1180

It is not too late to get signed up and come join us for an afternoon of Mitsu fun. The All Mitsu Cookout is coming up this Sunday, the 24th. We have some great prizes donated by Advance Auto Parts and Corporate Mitsubishi. We also will have plenty of food, and some fun stuff like the Mitsu trivia contest.

Here are some reminders:

1) Sign-up online. The page is at:
http://mn3s.org/lists/?p=subscribe&id=5

2) Fill out your car sign ahead of time. It saves a lot of time in the registration line. Download the sign at:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign.doc

And my example sign can be found here:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign-curt.doc

3) Bring some lawn chairs for hanging out and bring your appetite! We'll have plenty of food.

Also, if you are just coming to spectate, spectator cars (non Mitsus) will have parking on the frontage road in front of White Bear Mitsubishi.

Its only $6 for you and your car to be in the show and eat. Why not make the trip out to White Bear Mitsubishi!

Parking will be kind of tight at White Bear Mitsu. Here is a rough map of how we are going to park the cars: http://forums.mn3s.org/download/file.php?id=901 Based on sign up numbers, I'm sure some of these sections will need to expand. We will have a couple of people in the lot to help you park. Please park decent so we can maximize our space.

See ya soon,
Curt

Thank you to White Bear Mitsubishi for hosting the 2014 All Mitsu Cookout. And a big thanks to all my volunteers who had to do even more work this year with the new location. I have the Cookout page with trophies winners and pics. The page is at: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=1641
