When we got there last time it was about 7:15 and there may have been 10 cars there total, only 1 at the Hangover2 screen. The movies start at dusk, so wonder about what time dusk happens in september?

It may be good to shoot for arriving about 1 hour before dark so we will all have time to park, set up chairs, hang out and get some eats before the movie starts imo.

Samir, per our emails -
if you want to add to the flyers my email address for the purpose of RSVP that would be fine: cms.luttrell@juno.com

and your question of what happens if more than 80 rides show up:
I had thought about that also - too many - which I have not seen happen yet around here. If so, some, if they would agree, can park their rides in the parking lot, back section where we drive in to the Drive-In, and ride in with others. We will all, I believe, be sitting up chairs and watching the movie from outside our rides anyway. I am sure if the drive-in fills up, that they would still take our $5 each and let us walk in with our chairs in order to all be together. I do not see why they would not. If I was the owner or manager, I would accommodate large groups, I would not send anyone away. As time gets closer and we get a count, if it appears to be an issue, I will talk with the manager. Thanks, Marsha

Good points. I found out sunset starts at exactly 6:30pm on September 30, 2011 in Estill Springs. (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php). If we want to arrive an hour early, that means 5:30p. I don't think many could make that.

But more importantly will be the weather.

There's a 27% chance of rain, and there has been rain recorded for the last two years, although last year it was only .01 inches. If it's our normal pattern of rain during the afternoon finishing by early evening, there shouldn't be any affect on the event.

For September 30th, 2011 in Estill Springs, TN

No rain in sight, although the temps may get a bit cool in the evening, getting below 60.

As long as it's not over 100 degrees and 80% humidity and not under 50 degrees I'm good.

Sounds like a plan. I know they have a pretty nice line of parking in their lot that's close to the road that would be nice for cars that park outside the drive-in. Rucker also knows the owner and I've talked to him briefly about the event. He goes there regularly as well.

Ok I'll edit it in a little bit. I printed 20 of those out and have them passed out. I got one taped on the window at the shop. Next event/show I go to I'll hopefully have more.

Sounds good. Marsha hit the shows and cruise-ins this weekend with 500 copies and ran out.

if you have the capability, put your copier/printer at fast or light or draft quality - uses less toner or ink

Be sure to revise the flyer before we print a new batch.

Sorry. I did not see this until this morning. Looks good to me. Now I am just hoping we can get enough rides to fill the drive-in. That would be great. See you then. Marsha

Excellent. The new flyer is on the event listing page.

It's a matter of just getting the word out. Tell your friends, print out the flyer and post it everywhere, paste this link on facebook, twitter, and Google+:
http://www.huntsvillecarscene.com/ca...=2011-7-29&c=1

Let's fill the drive-in!

Have reported to the drive-in about 30 rides so far (from web page, calls & emails). Would love to see this number double by Friday. Their web page still shows Cars 2 at the drive-in thru the 28th. Check it later this evening or tomorrow to see if they have updated or changed.

In my experience, they never update the drive inn until Friday morning. I does not matter what is showing. I have seen some random movies that were really good there.
