OK, guys. Let's argue about this for a while. I've been checking out the local cruise/show scene since we're new to the area and I ran across something that I've never seen before. Someone started a weekly cruise night at a small restaurant that's only a couple of blocks from the house, so I thought I'd support the local business, etc. It turns out that the folks running the event want cruisers to pay a $5 'registration' fee. They give away a few small trophies each week. So maybe it's more of a weekly 'show' than cruise. Anyhow I thought that was kind of strange. When I lived above Atlanta, the great club that put on the monthly cruise in Canton asked for a $5 donation, but that went for parking lots care, and after a 50-50 drawing the remaining money went to a local charity. Not a problem. Glad to do it. And, there were always 400-600 cars. But a small, local restaurant cruise wanting $5 a week seems out of the mainstream. There's a Checkers a few miles away that does a weekly cruise (I'm going next week) for free. I'm told that once a month they have 'trophy night' and on those nights they ask for a $5 reg fee to cover the cost of trophies. That sound fine. What do you all think?
