as the 2nd to the last SCORE race ends, the muy grande of offroad races nears !!! here we have another year that goes by and there's "no party" ?? it used to be (a couple of years ago), that the DA would get ready for the Lake Elsinore Casino Baja 1000/Chris Ackerman Drawing party ?? But, we haven't been able to pull it off for the last few years, but i promise, i'll try and get it back ..... i'll talk to the chief :rolleyes: but, if any other baller teams, or frosh/soph teams want to step up ...... get some and lets have a good time and pick some starting positions ?? :cool:

Oct 10th is the drawing date.....hard to make an event while I am in Vegas working, Heidi is at PP racing with a major part of the community and ORE is going on...change the date in the future and I'm in

We should do something for Ackerman

What about Barona, Viejas, or sycuan.....or about PALA, HARRAHS Rincon. Call this guy Steve Eicher he is an event producer and is cheap....Can plan things last minute too. 858-382-4565....And he will handle everything phone calls emails etc...Plus has all his own DJ, Lighting, jumpies, coolers etc....

We were just talking about how much fun the drawings were when they were at the L.E. Casino...

Bummer, was hoping to hear it would be back this year.

Thanks for the past years PAB & L.E.C.!

No disrespect but those other BIG casinos would never put the effort in it took to make the Lake Elsinore Casino drawing parties happen.

Could you imagine trying to explain why we need to fly q private plane to San Felipe to pick up Sal......what about "ohhh and by the way we're gonna race a car though you property and we need to remove this palm tree over here.....we need to have rooms for these 20 FMX riders that re gonna drink the bar dry....

Let's not even get started on the $10k LEC "donated" directly to our buddy ackerman.

None of you have any clu what kind of commitmnt this took from Ted at the Lake Elsinore Casino and to mention any other casino on this thread is basically disrespectful.

Additionally Eric from Blue C, Jim Riley now at Azunia and myself were married to that event for a long period of time.

I say you all call, write or email Ted and tell him thanks for what he did in the past.

I remember talking with you about that at the "Drive" premier. Didn't realize then that it took so much $$$, time, and effort for a gig like that. It was definitely memorable!

PAB is 110% correct when he talks about how much work goes into planning a DRAWING PARTY ! Everyone should call TED up and thank him for what he has done in the past and then they should follow it up with another call to PAB to thank him ! After that make sure to thank each and every company that was involved with donations that helped make that event possible !

The Elsinore casino is perfect for this event....no big time casino would give the same close knit feel and ability to do everything the DA put on...with the pool,bands,poker,freestyle,tt lite races,pinkie challege, drawing etc. over 2 days non stop etc.
those where great times...hopefully Deano can duplicate again soon.
