Hi Carla, why the sudden change? Arboretum has a beautiful setting, many restaurants, plenty of parking, and coming off a record turnout!
Curious though..... who is in charge of this event? I know there's a group of people, but who deems themselves the head honcho?EARNED, AND NOT GIVEN....

There is no head honcho per se, but rather a group of automotive enthusiasts who have spent thousands of hours putting on an event for like minded enthusiasts. From our first meeting three years ago we have always said we do it "for the love of cars."
4play, if you would like to discuss this at length and get a glimpse behind the curtain of SCS, I have an open door policy at my office. Please feel free to stop by and we can discuss your concerns

I'm not sure what type of answer you're looking for. A few of us responded to your question in the other thread. Regardless of the beautiful setting (Which it was) there were a few private reasons on why we chose to move. What those reasons were... We probably wont discuss them with outside parties. What we can promise is that we won't stop looking for a place until we're 100% happy. Until that moment we're likely to move between locations. The benefit of this? We get a whole different set of cars coming out at different locations.
We understand that it may cause an inconvenience for some, We apologize for that. The Supercars Saturday team is working hard on finding a permanent spot. Till that day comes, You get to enjoy driving your car a few more miles
As to you're "Head Hancho" question. As Ron stated, there isn't one. We work as a team and all decisions are discussed between the group and voted on the best outcome. If you have a question feel free to send an e-mail to Info@Supercarsaturdays.com and one of us will respond as soon as possible.It is vital that we work to a few golden rules. Always work in a small team. Keep a very low profile. Only deal with people who come recommended. And it's like selling anything else: washing machines, hand made shoes, blowjobs. As long as you don't take the piss people will always come back for more. And that is not to say we don't have that special kind of magic that makes two kilos into three. But never be too greedy.

Sometimes it's difficult to please EVERYONE, spectators, participants and most importantly the MANAGEMENT companies of the malls. It is not necessary to make any negative comments if you are not spending all the time it takes to put these events together. It's really no ones' business as to what happened. Bottom line.... we are providing an atmosphere for CAR ENTHUSIASTS... Poopers not welcome or winers complaining about the distance. Suck it up, it's only ONCE A MONTH!Good cars get you from point A-B, Great cars just get you into trouble!

I liked the Arboretum a lot, hell I liked The Glen a lot more. The Glen was a stones throw from my house. I think I can appreciate how some venues are more popular than others, but what I don't understand is taking on a campaign of constant complaining when it changes. As far as I can tell, the organizers for this event aren't profiting from putting on this venue. They don't charge us for anything, and maybe the couple of businesses that are represented there pay a few bucks for sponsorship but I honestly don't think this is anywhere near a source of profit much less a source for primary income.
Then people like you come along, and try to ruin it for everyone. It is people like you that complain as if you are entitled to something for nothing, and cause the people who put a lot of time and effort into organizing these things undue stress and aggravation, taking away their motivation to do this to begin with. I happen to like the event, regardless of where it has been held. Who knows what the full explanation is for moving the venue, and really, what does it matter? There is a reason to move it, and as long as they are running the show, they will do what they feel is necessary to keep it going.
I am just appalled at the nerve people have and the sense of entitlement to complain about everything even when it is completely voluntary, free, and ultimately for the benefit of many instead of a few. This reminds of a story when I volunteered at soup kitchen in high school, but it is likely best not to voice in its entirety here. Most people can probably assume how it went with someone getting something for free, but complaining the whole time about how it was prepared.
If you don't like the venue, don't go. If you have constructive criticism, voice it. If you want to bitch and moan about how terrible you think the event is, well then why don't you start your own event, put in all the time and effort to organize it, execute it, keep it going, etc, and then you can run it any way you want.
I am personally have been happy with the venues and it seems from other people's posts such as Carlas, most other people agree. Bollingbrook is not an ideal venue for me as it is quite a trek, but then again, I bought my cars to drive them anyways, so this may be a blessing in disguise. I would suggest you relax a bit and stop trying to create drama around something that you really have no leverage in complaining about, and try not to ruin this event for the rest of us.
