In my experience with small gatherings (get to the definition of that in a minute), usually we're lucky to see half of the people signing up actually come, and I attend several such gatherings throughout the year. Be they "Hey, lets get dinner at Restaurant ABC in DEF Town on GHI day," or "Hey, let's have a mod day, who's in??", it's just friends hanging out and poking fun at, err, thinking fondly of the ones who live close and didn't come. Yeah, that's the ticket...
When I say small gathering I'm not referring to the number of cars and people. I literally mean a small gathering of people, meaning a group of friends getting together to chat, gush over each others cars, have a meal, etc. I've only ever seen awards handed out at literal car shows. Carlisle, OC, On The Border Rt. 1, the annual Mars Snackfood show, all examples of where I've been and seen awards passed out.
AFAIK, this is simply a small gathering of 300M Enthusiast's Club members and friends coming together for camaraderie.
That said, we need to assign a dedicated event planner/coordinator if we are to ask the club for assistance with at least food and beverages.
Carlisle 2018 - An epic weekend, gone too fast
Carlisle 300M Special class - 1st Place
Carlisle 300M Club awards - Best of Show
Humbled. Floored. Ecstatic. Grateful to all who voted for Luna against such stiff competition!
