LINKS CLUB RIDES CAR SHOW PHOTO ALBUM SHOWS PIN UPS TATTOOS GUESTBOOK
Some people may count the days to Christmas,,, other people New Year's... we Road Rockets
however count down the days to the Motorama!!! The smell of fresh flyers is in the air so here
you go!! I know that you are super excited, BUT PLEASE remember the following before sending
in your entry: It must include your name, complete address, best phone number to reach you at,
your signature at the bottom AND PHOTOS!! We are not the selection committee... they do not know
who you are or your vehicle and without photos they cannot determine if your vehicle is something
would fit the Motorama. This keeps us out of the selection process, we have a limited number of spaces
and we want you all.... but that's just not possible. I will call you first to let you lnowyour entry has
been received starting November 20th and after the selection committee makes their decisions. I will
call you and let you know you are in. If you have not been chosen your entry will be returned to you.
For those of you on the mailing list you should receive them shortly.
On behalf of the Road Rockets Car Club I would like to begin by laying the foundation of what we are about to announce… In today’s technological world it seems that we are all playing a big game of “telephone”… Passing inaccurate information to the masses at the speed of light. So in an effort to get out ahead of any rumors or miscommunication or even misunderstandings you are getting everything straight from the source. Of course it is sort of ironic that the girl with the smallest social media footprint is writing on social media… I hope it makes you chuckle as much as it has me.
The most important thing to remember as you continue to read is that the Road Rockets Car Club is NOT going away…
However, we are making some major changes and those changes directly affect all of you, our loyal supporters, dedicated friends and those of you that are like family to us.
The time has come after 18 wonderful and successful years for us to bring the Road Rockets Rumble to a close. Some things have happened over the summer that have led to this decision… Things that we have absolutely no say in and in the words of my club brother Goose… out of our circle of control.
Two crucial events have occurred…. First, the field that we rely heavily on for the show has been sold and will be developed. Second, Mr. Kote, the owner of the Waterfront and one of our biggest fans, has officially retired from the hotel business and he and his wife have sold the hotel.
Since moving to the Waterfront 11 years ago we couldn’t have asked for a better place to call home. We were tucked away in our own secluded world for 3 days with the koolest rides, the best vendors, the most outstanding bands and of course the finest pin-ups. All this paired with a dedicated and supportive hotel staff we were truly home. Replicating this is next to impossible and an endeavor that we choose not to pursue. We do not in any way want the show to suffer and we believe that it would. We have worked diligently over the years to give you all in attendance the personal attention you so richly deserve in a place that wanted you there and knows you by name.
With that being said, the time has come to bring the show to a close.
As I stated in the beginning, the Road Rockets are not going anywhere. We just had our annual Flag-Drag Race event at Brown County Dragway that saw a huge number of people and cars! I am currently getting everything in order and taking entries for our Motorama 1962 show being held in February at the State Fairgrounds.
Each and every one of us want to thank you ALL, what ever your role was in the Rumble, for all of your support and dedication over the years…. Without each and every one of you the Rumble would not be what it is today and leave the legacy behind that it has. Each and every memory will be cherished and smiled upon.
We look forward to seeing you all at shows like the Freaki Tiki, the E’ville Shindig and the Hot Rod Hullabaloo and of course we certainly hope that you join us for the Motorama!!
Again, THANK YOU for 18 wonderful and memorable Rumble years!!
