Hello Again Car Enthusiasts!

It has been a while since everyone has heard from us; I hope everyone's summer has been enjoyable. These last two months have seemed like some of the busiest summer months in years. With all the events going on there has been little time to put events together. Having said that, I am very excited to announce a very special upcoming event that is a bit different from the Cars and Coffee we have been hosting this year. With the help of a LOT of people over the last month or so, we have been able to organize something that is panning out to be very special.

This day is not quite the Cars and Coffee event everyone has come to know and love but something a little more. With the help of Driven Perfection, Autotrader, The Beantown Sound, Heliops, and Plymouth Municipal Airport management Yuppieracing.net would like to announce the 2009 Cars and Copters event organized to benefit the Saint Jude's Children Research Hospital.

Plymouth Municipal Airport has agreed to host this event by providing us with the use of a number of its fields. This guarantees space for roughly 500 vehicles. Located on site is “Plane Jane’s” restaurant. In addition to the onsite restaurant we are hoping to have a catering company onsite to provide attendees the option of fresh bbq(hamburgers, hotdogs and ribs). Coast Guard Cadets will be insuring a safe and organized atmosphere. The event promises to be the first of its kind in the area. For directions to the Plymouth Municipal Airport, click here

In addition to an amazing display of cars, Heliops will have its own fleet of helicopters on hand and for those interested short tours of the area by air will be taking place. To reserve your place please email [email protected]. In addition to Heliops’ fleet, we are hoping to secure a Blackhawk and Chinook for attendees to check out. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to win prizes via a raffle / helicopter ball drop. Prizes include a full detail from Driven Perfection. As mentioned ALL proceeds from the day will benefit Saint Jude's Children Research Hospital.

As always, please remember to be on your best behavior. This is a fully operational airport and still requires us to pay attention to federal regulations as well as many local laws. Please refrain from doing any donuts, burnouts, drifting or racing of any kind. Police will be on site, and we all know they’ll be waiting for us on the public roads. Do not give them any reason to stop you.

For those of you interested in sponsoring the event to keep costs down please send an email to [email protected].

Lastly, help us spread the word! Invite your family, friends, co-workers, or that
random person down the street with the rare car. The more people the better
and we certainly have no shortage of space at this location. This event is a shine only event and has a rain date of September 27th.

Once again, hope to see everyone there,

Hey, good to see you again.
I also met Peter, and there was another member that was there as part of the Cobra club that came and left early in the day, unfortunately i'm terrible with names.

Almost, it's Paul. :) I'm just as bad with names, but thanks for chatting, good to hear about reliable cars. I parked way off to the side and then got onto the Bell 47 for a ride around the area. That was a hoot, no doors.

Fun show, great location. I hope they can pull it off again in the spring.

I wanted to go up in the helicopter, but I have been up a few times before in my friends helicopter.

Hope to see you again soon...

Sorry Paul, good to meet you anyway.

I went up in the Eurocopter (girlfriend got the copilots seat), it was a blast. Only my second time in a copter. I would have loved to hop in the Bell, that thing looked like a blast.

Hope to see everyone soon if a fall drive gets organized.
