    MARAUDERVILLE 2015!!

    It's Time!!! Marauderville 2015 !!!



    The time to plan Marauderville 2015 is upon us!! Here are the criteria and timeframe for proposals. MM.Net Administration will review the proposals, which must be submitted by March 1, 2015. Look for an announcement in Mid March 2015 for MV2015!! (email address below)


    Criteria for Marauderville 2015


    Lodging
    • Hotel must be affordable. Someone MUST make an on-site visit to determine available facilities.
    • Amenities: King and Two Queen rooms; High Speed Internet (preferably at no extra charge); dining room, banquet facility, bar all on-site or within close proximity; pool preferred.
    • The hotel must be able to offer a block of no less than 50 rooms and have ample parking. Security is a high priority.
    Itinerary
    • or 1/8 mile drag strip, Road course or oval track within a reasonable distance and the cost of use. Test and Tune is an affordable option.
    • Things to see and do: plant/factory tours, museums, breweries, local culture, Cruises, anything automotive and/or transportation related.
    • Car Show with awards
    • Maraudervilles have traditionally been a Thursday through Sunday event, though other days to fit a specific scheduled event would be fine. Early Fall would be ideal, although other times will be considered depending on circumstances such as events we can piggyback on.
    • Consider the distances needed to travel in between itinerary locations as well as traffic and turns.
    • Down time and time to socialize are important so there's no need to fill every minute of the day.
    Responsibilities of Planning Team

    • Communiciation and follow-through are the most important tasks for the Team. MM.Net will provide a closed forum for the Planning Team so all communications and tracking are in once place.
    • Site visits to potential hotels and all proposed venues.
    • Contact and pricing for awards and t-shirts. If you have no one local, we can provide info from prior vendors that served us well.
    • Contact Supporting Vendors and local area businesses and Chamber of Commerce for support of MV2015.
    • Manage as a team any fundraising opportunities to help reduce the cost of Registration for Attendees.
    Please include projected costs for any itinerary options such as admissions, fees, rentals, meals, catering, insurance, etc. It is OK to suggest "meal on your own."

    Use 100 people as a guideline for costs.

    Relate why you feel Marauderville 2015 should be at your location. What makes it “special & unique”?

    Any members of previous planning teams would be more than happy to share their experiences. MM.Net pays all the bills and if you must front money, you will be reimbursed with receipts. MM.Net manages the Eventbrite and PayPal functions.

    Please submit your proposal to MM.Net@MercuryMarauder.Net by March 1, 2015. Follow-up on the proposal may be needed, so please include names, email addresses and phone numbers of Members involved in the proposal.

    The most important part of planning and execution is a dedicated group of people - doesn't need to be many - that can follow through with all aspects of the event. Also, not everyone on the Planning Team needs to live in the proposed Host Site.

    If you have any questions, please email MM.Net@MercuryMarauder.Net or talk to Dan or Mary.

    Just checking in and this thread.

    If any group is in proposal discussions, could you please shoot me a PM? If we don't get any proposals, we'll have to come up with Plan B.

    Thanks!!

    Charlottes!

    I had a few guys say there were going to meet me at power tour 2014, but sold out. Instead I met an awesome guy, with a engine from my job (roush yates). We had a ball. Let's bring the dark Knights, silver birch's, the blue's and maroons to power tour this year. There are not many Marauder owners left. Let's make it count!

    All things being equal a West Coast Marauderville is overdue IMHO. I gotta say that I hope Vegas gets the nod but regardless... there will be a Vegas meet so all is not lost. Way to go Mebot & team. Got my fingers crossed for MV!
