I agree Scott.  I personally would like to keep it Urq - not necessarily
exclusive - but I don't want a bunch of guys coming to show off their
Stage 9 S4s with 19' wheels.  I also agree with some thing you said a
while back - have lots of "perimeter" (or whatever the word is)
activities to attract more people- have those options available -
participation is totally by choice.  

As for picking a venue - I still think the best way would be to have a
site with several options - and rather than vote for the one you want-
indicate every place you _would_ go to.  I'm sure plenty of people would
go to their 2nd or 3rd choice venue if it meant the biggest and best

Accomodating other folks isn't a problem, having a waterfest-type  audi
loses the focus of the urq, and adds huge logistical issues to  an
IMO.  It's easy to identify the urq owners, you just require a  VIN for 
registration, you don't have to bring it.  Having done events  before,
you need to 
weed out participation from visitation.  Many  venues these days have a
limit as 
to participants, including spectators.   My own thinking is that's not a
I'd love to see a Road America Event as well, but given the cost of
track in the USA, I see reality eclipsing that vision.  Realistically,  
exceeding a couple hundred for event costs, doesn't sound realistic to
me.   An 
ur-qfest at RA (assuming we could get a date) at 150 cars would be in
easy excess 
of 500per participant.  Again, I think an autocross and  some good road
are more realistic in budgeting fun per dollar.

I agree with a lot of what you said in your post.  Especially your
summary. The driving force here should be the Urq and the  family and
friends surrounding it. That said, I think what  you say in Point 3 is
contradictory to that. Unless I"m mis-reading it I  read that to say
that other I5's are not welcome.  For me, There is a  good chance that
would exclude me.  I have two 83' ur-q's.  But  there is a good chance
that neither would make it to this
event.   Neither have engines in them at the moment.  But if I don't tow
behind my LandRover just to show it off, then I'd likely be coming  in
another flavor of Audi. I would also encourage anyone  who loves the
car, but doesn't own one to come and participate.  I  would agree that
the FOCUS should not be other cars.  But people  should be free to come
in whatever they bring.  What matters is  getting everyone together to
celebrate the car, and have  good camaraderie.  

Thanks for the long  posts.
