Hey guys. I wanted to take a moment to invite you all out to a charity driving event I'm putting together up in the NC Mountains. You'll find some details below and more on the website. Mark your calendars for this event. Registration is open now and the link is on the website. Post up or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions.
Thanks. Welcome to the 2nd Annual High Country Challenge!!!!
Scheduled for October 3rd, 2009
Full details: Drivers Anonymous: Charlotte High Country Challenge What is this?
The High Country Challenge is a self-guided driving event through the heart of Americana. We provide the sponsor stops, you determine the route. An automotive adventure where you get to see beautiful sights, interesting locations, and great roads. Where is it located?
The event this year will be centered in and around the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. Why should you participate?
Proceeds from the event are donated to a beneficiary each year. The NCNG Soldier and Airmen's Family Assistance Fund
will once again be the recipient. Who can play?
Anyone. We recognize one driver or one driver and one navigator as a team. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, bicycles are all welcome. Cost?
$50 per vehicle; includes a light dinner at the last stop and all proceeds go to charity. Prizes?
Grand Prize - All expenses paid (hotel room for one night and gas money for the day)
Additional prizes – Product and Service donations from Event and Route Sponsors
For example: Supercar Sensation of Concord, NC has donated a gift certificate for their Test Program. In this program, you get to choose three of their supercars and drive them over the course of an hour. (check out their website at Supercar Sensation
) How does the event work?
The participants will visit as many of our route sponsor stops as they desire. At each stop, trip tickets are available that will be used to qualify for the drawings at the end of the event. The more locations you visit the more drawing entries you earn. Pretty simple. Beyond that....we're not going to tell you how to get to each location or when you have to be there. The number of route stops will be kept relatively low in order to provide you with the most flexibility to get out, relax and enjoy the countryside.
Here are a few random pics from the event last year:
