First of all, Happy New Year!
I apologize for being relatively “new” here and posting this. I am a fellow Nissan enthusiast. Just to prove my point, I bought a 1995 200SX SE-R at the age of 19, convince my wife (girlfriend at the time) to ditch her Cavalier and get a 1993 NX2000, later bought her a 2002 Maxima SE, and purchased a 2008 FX45 as well as G37 (which my wife later sold unfortunately). Anyway, my point is that I’m a fellow Nissan enthusiast.
I’m writing today to let you know of the 2011 Nissan-Infiniti National Convention. You can read all of the information (we will be updating the website as information comes in and as we get closer to the date) on our website at www.nissan-infiniti.us
. This convention has morphed from the SE-R world and we are trying to encompass all Nissans, Infinitis, and even Datsuns. This year’s convention will be in South Jersey over the weekend of August 5-7.
The convention typically consists of a track day on Friday (we will be at New Jersey Motorsports Park), a free day for people to do as they please (some chose to hang out at the hotel making new friends, some chose to go drag racing, some will go to the beach, some will do touristy stuff, some will work on broken cars), and a carshow/picnic on Sunday complete with food, trophies, and tons of raffle prizes.
For the month of January we are offering an early-bird price for the track event registration. Below are the details but we are asking people to register early with the potential to make roughly half of their money back if we break even on the event by a pre-determined date.
Even if you’re not interested in the track event, I’d encourage you to think about coming to this convention. We’d like to take this convention to the next level and it only makes sense to include all Nissans, Infinitis, and Datsuns as we are all in the family and we are all “Nissan enthusiasts” I understand that the track event may not be of any interest to you as an Armada owner but who knows? Maybe you use your Armada to trailer your track car (Nissan or not). Maybe you'd like to come to the track and catch a ride or see what it's all about? Even if you're not into the track, there will also be a large carshow/picnic and tons of cool raffle prizes. For those of you into the offroading scene, we will probably have someone setting up a side trip to do that on the free day (Saturday). So, stay tuned Armada owners!
There are a few reasons for this early-bird program:
- Plain and simple, we need money in the coffers. We need to put deposits down on things, we need to pay for supplies, we need to be able to pay for online registration/paypal fees
- See the attached document for details but there is a potential discount to early-bird registrants. In short, if we hit our target, we will be refunding a portion of your registration. We’re hoping that this will help us market the event. It gives you, the registrant, a vested interest in promoting the event and getting more people registered!
- We’re looking to generate interest early on. The convention is “only” 8 months away but that time will fly by quickly. We want people to get interested and we want to maintain that interest
For anyone worried about not knowing me and sending me money, I want to assure you that I have nothing to hide. My username is my name; Kieran Lavin. I don’t want people posting it publicly but, if you did a simple search, I’m sure you could find my home address, phone number, employer, whatever. I’m not going anywhere. Now, on to the details:
We look forward to hearing from you and please feel free to spread the word within the Nissan/Infiniti/Datsun community!
