      FIRST ANNUAL 333-BALL 2012 July 5-7

      What started as a road trip with some buddies, has morphed into what might be the best idea of the year. The 1st annual 333-ball 2012! An endurance rally from Boston to NYC... the long way. We will be making stops at some of the north eastern regions hot spots. Places like the Kancamangus Highway in New Hampshire, a night in the great city Montreal (they have flip top heads!), a night in Detroit the "Rock City" Michigan, through the amazing Pocono Mountains, to NYC where we have a blow out party. All because we love our cars. Yes, I said Boston->Montreal->Detroit-. NYC 3 nights, 3 days, 3 cities.

      Here are the details:
      150.00$per car and driver buy in. + 40.00$ per additional passenger to cover the food (To be explained later)
      Registration will start PROMPTLY at 10 am July 5th at the Lars Anderson Auto Museum in Boston's Jamaica Plain Neighborhood. With a Picture perfect view of the city a good place for a photo opp. There you will pay and receive your decal, and to list of exact destinations. At 11:30 Sharp we will start staggering departures 4 cars at a time and recording you departure time. From this point it is on you to get yourself to the final party in the respective cities. There will be slight detours that will require you to take a picture to prove you were there, and to keep the routes somewhat even. Hotels and parking are on you in these cities as well, but as we get a good idea of how many cars are coming, we will look into group deals on parking and hotels. One of the 333 staff will be at each destination city to record you arrival time. Which will be tallied and tracked.

      Once we start to gain participants a more detailed agenda with day 2 and 3 start times will be sent out.

      The $150.00 Gets you your decal, some food at the final destination cities, and makes you eligible for a special prize to be announced at the time of registration. Trust me it will be worth it.

      Side note: YOU WILL NEED A PASSPORT

      There is a catch..... since we don't have a guaranteed amount of people coming, I will say that if we don't get at least 15- 20 cars involved By JUNE 1st, none of this is possible. Between what it costs to line up the restaurants, the decals, etc, it won't work with less then that. So if you are into it, any recruiting will help us all reach the necessary goal to run this thing.

      So that’s the basic Idea. Just to have a good time, some good views, and some cool cars or beaters, whatevs.

      This is the first time my buddy and I are putting anything like this together, so bear with us as we pull it together and excuse us if we are not as formal as other cruises. In other words, if you are a hater…well then keep it to yourself.

      If you are interested in coming, PM me your basic info( name, car, number of people in the car, etc) or any questions. I have started a master list and having just launched the idea on FB today (5/2/12) we have 4 cars defiantly in. If you have any friends that aren’t on the form that are interested in coming, PM me and I will give you my email. Because this is a “pay at registration” event, if you have any doubt that you will be able to come, don’t tell me you are going to be there and not show up cuz I gota make deals with the restaurants/bars and such and it would suck not to be able to pay them.

      Disclaimer: This is NOT A RACE! We, at 333, do not condone speeding, street racing or any other law breaking activity during this event. If you are doing any un-lawful maneuvers in your car while on this trip we reserve the right to make you un eligible for the donated prize and you may ask to leave the group. The organizers of the 333 ball are in no way liable for any speeding tickets, accidents, damage to cars, bodies, GF/BF relationships, BF/BF relationships, GF/GF relationships, or any other dumb stuff I am not thinking of. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer stating that you understand these rules at registration.

      Good times...

      This is going to be lots of fun. Compared to rallies like the Gumball this is going to cost peanuts for a cool experience, all goes well.

      Direct you complaints elsewhere, this is for the community and those interested, not whiners. GL Rex!

      Let me get this straight... You really think that my response was more "dick" then...

      I am sorry if it came across rude, i truly am. I was just trying not to fill this post with negitive comments, which has happened regardless . But his/her comments were at the least, unproductive, and at the worst, rude. How dose anybody giving the old new England " good luck with that" comment help anyone? I am framilar with that saying because I say it all the time. It is generally used when people are trying to say " your idea sucks and doesn't hold water".
      I said it in the original post, if you are going to hate on the idea. Just keep it to your self. I guess I appreciate the bump, but there are 7 cars and 13 people that didn't wish me a sarcastic good luck. They signed up for what is going to be a great Time. I hope you do sign up. regardless of how I came across, I and the other people signed up are a fun group. I just don't need the negative energy around my out of the box idea. Sorry guys, but seriously take the drama to another thread.

      didn't think about that, but as far as the event, no age restriction. I know i used to rent hotel rooms in montreal when i was 18-19, but that was 11-12 years ago. i guess i would call a random hotel in the 3 cities and ask what the local laws on that are.
      Sleeping in the car for the good time to be had might very well be worth it.

      Well the main reason behind it is because of alchohol. Alot of rooms have mini bars and they cant have minors access them. But Montreal drinking age is 18 so its gonna be fun. The rest of the time i will just sleep in my car if i cant get a room.

      Gotta pull the trigger on this this week. Don't think we have enuf cars (12)to do it as formal as pitched. But a couple friends and I are still going to do the drive. In other words this is a

      i find it funny that this thread is about a 3 day rally that is cheap and everybody is bagging it, yet the $800 3-day rally has at least 25 people committed.

      whats the difference?

      thaty is a good question my friend.
      I am not that bent out of shape about it. It started as and idea with 4 cars and some friends, and then one of us suggested we toss it up here (and a Subie forum) to see it we could make something out of it. at least here people said something, even if it was making fun of the idea, the subie forum had only one reply.
      Any way it still going to happen but with less formality. I am not going to charge anyone to come because i am not going to line and dinners or parties up. You will just have to fend for your self when you get to the cities (which after dinner and such i bet will be more expensive then the 150).

      So now that it "FREE" does any one want to come? PM me and i will tell you where to meet.
