    uconncarclub@gmail.com

    The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 9th Annual Spring Car Show on Sunday, April 15th RAIN OR SHINE! IT'S ON!. Please follow us on twitter for updates.

    What you need to know:

    Location:
    W-Lot Commuter Parking Lot on the Storrs Campus
    Directly off Storrs Rd (rt. 195)
    Storrs CT, 06269
    (see map below)

    Hours:
    Gates open @ 9:00 am (Please try not to come earlier because the lot will not be ready)
    Registration closes @ 12:00 pm
    Gates close when the parking lot capacity has been reached (~600 cars)
    Trophies by 1:30-2:00 pm

    Price:
    Free to spectators
    $10 dollars to show

    Parking:
    There will be no pre-registration. If your group would like to park together; arrive early and drive in together as a group. The first map attached below lists parking lots in the area and their locations so you can meet as a group before arriving at the show to drive in together.

    Important: This year spectator parking will be across Rt. 195 along the side of Horse Barn Hill Road. If you do not plan to register your car, please park in the spectator area. As always, parking is limited at UConn, but we will try our best to accommodate all spectators. Police Officers and club members will be there to direct you.

    Bragging Rights
    For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest there's something for everyone, including Classics, Domestics, Imports, Euros and even Supercars. All makes, models and price ranges of vehicles are welcome.

    Classes are listed below. There will be a 1st place and runner up for each category.

The Type R award goes to the most ridiculously modded car. Bring your cardboard body kits!

    We Need Your Input
    Have any ideas for our show? Anything from previous shows you would like included or excluded? Any questions, concerns or comments for us? Please let us know! We have a forum setup on our website where you can discuss anything show related WITHOUT having to register. Just follow the link here and enter the password which is UC3 (all caps). The only way to make our show better is from the input we get and we'll do our best to incorporate as many ideas as possible.

    Other Mentionables:
    - The parking lot has a maximum capacity of around 600 cars. Once the parking lot is full, THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED. No ifs, ands, or buts. Plan accordingly and it should not be a problem.
    - Arrive with the people you want to park with. There will not be any room to leave empty parking spaces open. (see pics below for parking lots outside of the show that you can meet prior to arrival)
    - Judging will be done by the attendees and will begin at exactly Noon. Those who arrive past Noon will not be allowed to register for judging.
    - We will have porta-potties within the show as well as food and background music.

    Sponsors/Vendors
    If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, please contact the club for further details by email at uconncarclub@gmail.com
    Space is limited but arrangements can be made.

    Note:
    Participate at your own risk

    It's kind of crazy .. the second or third year of the show there were 20-25 3Ses that came to the show. Dwindled from there on unfortunately!

    I'll hopefully be able to make it up in time for the show this year, but it will be tight with my work schedule.

    Are we all planning on meeting at a parking lot, or do you think if I just arrive around 9:00AM I will be able to park with everyone?

    If you're there at 9:00 or shortly therafter, there won't be a problem parking together. We do the same spot every year.

    To the north of where the show's gonna be, (on Storrs road) about 2/3 of a mile on the left is a big closed down cowboy bar, don't remember the name of it offhand, but it's easy to spot. If you get there before 9, there's no place to wait, so when we get there early, that's where we've hung out. And we'll prolly get there a bit early. Feel free to join us there if you get there before the gates open.
