As many of you know, AM Meet VII is in the works with a date set for Sunday, March 26th. As of right now there has been no drive planned. However, after receiving numerous requests asking for a drive to accompany this meet we have gone ahead and started planning for one. We wanted to give you an idea of the revised plan for the upcoming meet. Our production team, Vexel Media, has been working hard to incorporate a drive into this meet and also possibly bring you another quality video, and photo shoot. We have already put together a preliminary route which we think will offer a good mix of highway driving and back roads in order to give a nice variety. At the current time we are planning on about an hour to an hour and a half drive. Also because of the amount of people confirmed to attend and the planned drive following the meet, we will be reworking the lunch arrangements. We might be asking all of you to arrange for food on your own, suggestions on how to handle this issue are welcome.
We are probably going to be setting up a paypal account and once we finalize plans for the drive, we will be asking for some donations in order to help us offset the cost of producing this drive. We would love to produce another video for this drive, but at the moment we are quite limited in our resources. Your donations will help ensure that we are able to produce quality videos and excellent drives for this event and in the future. If you do not wish to donate, please do not, we are still doing this purely for the fun of organizing these events. As time goes on we would like to make these events bigger and better, and with your donations we will be able to accomplish that. We will provide more details as we have them, and we expect to finalize the plans for this drive next weekend.
Some of you have also been asking about personal photo shoots. We would like to offer those as well, starting hopefully at some point in April. We will let you know of pricing as that information becomes available.
