$60 to sell your car on carsales, $20 at Spectacolo, how cheap do you want it?, some people go to Spectacolo for one reason, to buy or sell a car, i know because i talk to people there and they ask me do you know anyone who wants to sell or buy an xyz, we don't want Spectacolo to be a drain on the clubs finances, the hiring of the grounds doesn't come cheap, user pays, whats wrong with that?, Colin.

colcol, nothing wrong with that.  But my point (probably not well made) was simply financial members should see some benefit with this type of thing, if the club wants to use this as a revenue stream (or cost recovery), fine, but offer a discount to the membership.  And you are correct, lots of people go to Spettacolo to buy/sell, it has never attracted a fee in the past (members or not).

Anyway, we elect a committee to make these sorts of decisions, its not up to us keyboard warriors.

Back to topic, looking forward to the new venue. Bigger and better!  Great work John, no doubt you have lifted this event over the last few years!

.. and they make those decisions based on what they think members want, so I don't see the problem on expressing your view.

$60 to sell your car on carsales, $20 at Spectacolo
I think that breaks down to;
- Advertise the car on carsales for $60 until it's sold... this is on a site we all recommend when someone lands on the forum looking for a car to buy.
- To put a sign in your car's window while on display for $20 for a few hours to people looking to buy a car, who have probably already checked carsales.
I know which way I'd go.

Hi,
We discussed the issue of people wanting to sell their cars at Spettacolo on Wednesday at the Commitee meeting. Very clearly, there is no charge for anyone who would like to put a shingle up on their car at Spettacolo.

The car boot sale option: Given we have now upgraded to a brilliant site with more room and ammenities, John is considering partioning an area specifically for car boot sellers and charging them a nominal fee for the day.

I hope that provides some clarity on this issue.
Best Regards
Phil

Riding on the coat tails of clarity ...   There are a few simple issues here.

I believe there should be a structure and a culture where we get Spettacolo to fund itself like the 6 hour.  Unfortunately Car Displays and Concorso are a different kettle of fish to a the competition series in place.  So that is just a thought and not a reality today.

It was a thought that to increase revenue raising in making each segment pay for itself - and on the face of it charging a fee for car boot sale and selling a car seemed a reasonable solution.

The reality is that we struggle to get volunteers to judge, manage gate and field and parking control and its just not fun at all. 

So to keep it simple, a decision was very recently made to not charge a fee on due to control issues. 

Accordingly and more importantly the boot and car sales opportunity is something that we give our members free of charge.  So in this modern e-world we can use this as a positive so at Spettacolo being a free event for all and a few bonus options that we give our members and create a positive thru the simple practical side of things.

That creates real value for the club and its members !

Richard, last year we had 85 entrants in Wash'n Shine.  This year we are looking at 100 as a target !!!

So we want old cars (101, 102 & 105 series) and new cars - also 916 Spiders, 939 series sedan, coupe and spider.

Ok so if my entire family brought their cars to the show and shine that would be 4, richard can bring his 4 cars so that totals to 8 cars from 2 people. Add in the numerous cars that members own it should easily get 100 cars. Trouble is trying to get everyone to come on the day.

Hi AROCA VIC friends,

what is the feeling towards interstate cars being there? - to be honest it is a very long shot but I am tempted to bring a car from Sydney. So far I have been lucky enough to convince the wife and two kids for a weekend away, the car might be a stretch.

Either way I am looking forward to meeting some of the characters on this forum and seeing some lovely cars.

Yep, all interstate Alfisti welcome.

I have a Wash'n Shine award for the interstate club members too as all AROCA club members were invited to attend. 

After all it's the Melbourne Cup weekend so while some may be away, this will balance out with interstate participants visiting family, going to the Cup or more realistically,  going to Spettacolo.

Don't forget to book accommodation asap.

I would be happy paying $20 to sell my car on the day. Do I need to contact someone or just turn up?
