Who did you contact? I know you didn't call or email me. We probably have twice as many local cars now as we did just a year ago.Last time we checked for interest from the Missouri crowd, we heard nothing. It looked like we would have only 4 cars, if that, enter the rally. That is not enough of a "show" to justify it to the locals.

Plus the roads we have available at this time are not all weather roads. A half inch of rain takes out the rally.
We need Camp Maxey back but that is dependent on a certain Colonel who thinks we are illegal, unpatriotic and immoral.
No, but you need to give more than a few weeks notice to get 14 commitments. I think you already realize that you have a product that you're trying to market to prospective customers. As said customer, I tend to shop around early in the season and set my schedule based on events that have a high likelihood of being ran.You want engraved invitations?
And that includes e-mailing, calling, sending smoke signals, etc to competitors?If I remember, it was also posted on our web site www.rallyengr.com.
Part of our problem has been moving off our traditional date of Thanksgiving. Summer doesn't work because of the heat. Spring is planting and rain season. We tried that once and did not get a great interest then either.
The other problem is that due to the extreme drought, we have been scared to put on a rally under red flag conditions. Lamar county is more heavily wooded than Bastrop county further south. Remember Bastrop is where, when Rick Perry prayed for rain, God set Texas on fire. Almost the entire county had fire. Setting a wildfire of that proportion could get rally shut down throughout the entire country. At Camp Maxey, we always have a brush truck on site. Out in the county, we did not have that type of coverage. We tried.
So we will go look for roads and hope for rain and we will advertise every where Perryville does.
