It's HERE! This is the announcement for the launch of "The Lee Cyr 914 Memorial Build Off Classic" Yep, No acronym for that one. The event title is a mouth full but it's a special event.

In case you have been under a rock or without the 914world in your life for the last several months Lee Cyr (Sear) was the brother of Mary Shortridge and a 914 enthusiust. Lee was invloved in a fatal automobile accident last December. Marys family decided to restore Lees 914 and keep it in the family in his memory.

Many of us wanted to help Mary and her family complete the work on Lees car. Parts donations have been pouring in from all corners of the 914World.

Now is the time to take this generosity to the next level. A small band of 914 Brothers have been working behind the scenes to take your efforts to the next level.

This is an opportunity for all you 914World members to really show your stuff. This World event is being held in Garden City Kansas February 19-21, 2010! There will be one special 914 there so no need for you all to bring your own.

We have an unbelievable location for the build off. A 3000 sq. play house owned by a car guy. It has a full work shop, kitchenette, and showroom.

The event starts Friday as soon as you can arrive! The usual meet and greet will take place on into the wee hours.

Some of the build off will likely start Friday night. The more we get done Friday the sooner we will accomplish our goal which is to have Buttercup completed by Sunday morning.

We have other events planned throughout the day so don't worry about being bored.


Event Location:

Garden City, Kansas

When:

The event actually takes place on two different dates. So there is plenty of opportunity for everyone to contribute. Starting the weeekend of Friday January 29th we want to send in a recon team to move the car from it's present location at the body shop with all the parts and pieces to the Build Off location. Once there we will have tables set up to set out parts and organize them in groups for the build. This will involve completing an inventory to be sure the Build Off event can be completed in February. This will be the least glamorous but most important part of the event. If you can't make the February Build Off and would still like to contribute contact Rick via PM.

The Main Event!:

The meet and greet starts as soon as we arrive Friday February 19 at one of the coolest man caves you will ever witness in person. (see the photos)

Purpose of the event:

To support Mary Shortridge and her family and help complete the work they started. We will likely start assembling this special car Friday night to get a jump on Saturday's Build Off. The goal is to have a Running and driving car in 24 hours.

Hotel Info:

Clarion
Amro Samy, manager/Owner
1911 E Kansas Ave , Garden City, KS, US, 67846
Phone: (620) 275-7471
$75 + tax for room with 2 queen beds (Normally $109+)

Free Airport Transportation and maybe to/from Luke's from the hotel
Free Breakfast
2 Free Drink Coupons
Free Soup/Salad each evening
On-site Restaurant and Bar

We are checking to see if we have to ask for the special rate by name.

Event sign up:

Our own Mike Moorman (Kansas 914) and Wayne Fry (Tat2dphreak) are just completing an online form for your convience. It will be up and running tomorrow and posted here.

Event Cost:

First, there are two ways to support this event and see to it that the costs are covered. If you can't attend but still want to be part of this World event you can simply support the event by donation. We are doing this because of the short lead time to get this up and running. Donations can be made by Paypal to: edwardblume@gmail.com managed by Rob Ways (RobW), or by check / mail to Mike Moorman (Kansas 914). See this post for more info: http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=101613

Second, The event itself will have an entry fee of $35 which will include a tribute T-shirt, games, and other extras. Additionally, T-shirts will be available for non-attendees for a short time period for $25. Please be patient the online form is nearing completion. Again, all proceeds above the costs of the event will go to Lee's passion, NET radio.


This is a winter event. If your car is on jack stands it doesn't matter. This is your change to get in the daily driver and come out to support a great cause and meet some of the people you chat with on line everyday. Let's make this a big success!

We wont need it....just an analog ohm/volt meter.
I will do the build....please try and make sure there is some QC on the parts so we dont need to do an emergency hunt for an MPS or something simple like that...

I am thinking that maybe I will UPS a box of spares ahead of me....just in case.

I am HOPING that my bus will be ready. I just looked and if i can do the OH clinic right before this, it is about 15 hrs from Cinci or Dayton which is doable. However, I like flying and not having to drive back. I am not against a road trip, though. There is time to scheme.

Saw your PM reply Rick. Provided my job situation will allow it, I'd like to attend in January and help with that effort. Maybe we can make some fun out of that too!
