We received this note from Lisa Voglesong at the New London Waterford Speedbowl:
The staff at the New London Waterford Speedbowl are looking into hosting a New England Racers Expo at the Crystal Mall in Waterford Ct. the weekend for March 10-11th 2018. But before we commit to $2000 to “rent” the mall for this event we would like to get some feedback.
We are looking for New England Race tracks, touring divisions and company’s that sell racing equipment who are interested in setting up a table at this event and pay a portion of the rental fee. You will be able have some race cars in your display- isn’t that what people come to look at? If we have 10 vendors we are looking at $200 each. The more vendors we have the price will go down. We are not looking to make money.
It will be a two day event in a great location. There is a food court and Buffalo Wild Wings on-site with Olive Garden, Longhorn and Texas Roadhouse nearby. Plenty of hotels to stay at with in minutes of the mall. The event would go from 10 am – 9 pm on Saturday and 10 am- 6 pm on Sunday.
For the fans it is going to be great! No entry fee to get into the event! Ladies that don’t want to go to a racing event well your in luck- you are at a great mall with Macy’s, JC Penny’s and tons of other great stores.
If you are interested in having a booth please contact Ginny Potter, Tracy Ingram , Rusti Simone, Heather Odom or Lisa Voglesong or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know a track or vendor that might be interested in being apart of this incredible event please share this post or contact them. We are looking to get an idea of how many and who are interested. The window is tight but if groups are interested and let us know soon- we can get this done!!
So come join us in having a real fun event for true Race fans!!
