    TOP would also like to host it again. However, personally I think that "MOTM" (with the T) will never be what MOM used to be from this point on (take that as good or bad...there are differing opinions). Justin and I are toying with the possibility of TM3 and TOP working together on something. Not sure if it would happen this year, but if not, then definitely next year as long as you guys are up for it...I know for sure TOP is.

    If MOM did go back to individual clubs, then it would only make sense to cycle back through the rotation. So it would be Miatas, Proteges, and then 3s again.

    Personally I think people should really give it more of a chance. If you don't like it know and are already planning something else then there is no way you'll like it. Just see how it goes with a fresh clean slate. Then if you don't like it, do something about it. Until then, give it a rest and just enjoy what it will be this year. Next year is another year.

    i hope you relize that this event is being run at an actual CSCS event, which is basically similar to NOPI. So i think we all know what Mazda Canada wanted to get out of this year. Personally i would rather have a meet somewhere in the wilderness where we can have a BBQ, chill, play some sports. If i want to sit in a parking lot then i can go to any weekly meet. If i want to see cars racing i call my friends. In MY opinion this event is BS.

    People are giving it a chance. What Justin and I are talking about has nothing to do with MOM. It would just be an event that would be co-hosted by TM3 and TOP with the same sort of feel as previous MOM events. But it has nothing to do with MOTM, or anything of that nature. It was only mentioned because some people said they would like to do something similar to previous events. So here we are. there is nothing to say that someone can only go to one event, or that they should go to one of the other, and it wouldn't even be teh same weekend. It's just one of many events for the summer. That's all.

    Ahh ok. I just find many people are negative about MOTM, which could lead to a poor atmosphere for the event.

    I'd like an MOM and an MOTM in a perfect world

    w3rd. We've just started talking about it, and I know the officers from TOP are all game for it. So we'll start something up soon. It's early still. But for sure...the moer people that want to get involved, teh better. Maybe if you guys want to talk to Justin to form your gruop that want to be involved, and then we can all discuss between the clubs soon.

    Hey Everyone,

    I wanted to throw my 2 cents in on the matter.

    I have stepped down from the MOTM committee, because I am unhappy with the direction that the event is going in. Concerns that I had put forth were not listened to, and there were a number of other factors in my decision to leave the committee.

    I had hoped that MOTM wouldn't become like a HIN, ImportFest, or a Darknights, however, that is what some members of the committee wanted, and I disagreed with it. There was also the issue of certain individuals on the committee who were very unpleasant in their attitudes towards other members, and I wasn't going to stand for it. In general, the environment wasn't conducive to a team, and I am not interested in being part of that.

    As far as doing a joint TM3/TOP event is concerned, I can confirm that Scooter and I have talked about it, and its definitely something that I have been thinking about over the past month.

    If you are interested in being involved in the planning process or have some ideas or suggestions, by all means, send me a PM me, and we'll get in touch with you when we are ready to go.

    Alternatively, come and see me at TM3 meets (Thursdays/Fridays/Sundays) and we can talk then.

    word, i am sure a few of us would be down for the planning!

    Justin, ur the point man for TM3, keep me in the loop!



    however . . .from now on all discussion on this matter should be in another thread, lets leave this thread specific for MOTM talk!

    thanks!

    i think it is wrong to have a separate planned event on MOTM day, that doesn't mean there cannot be a normal gtg

    I figure we will start over email, and then sit down and have a few meetings. If we can decide on the basics, such as a few workable dates, then we can look at some locations.
    From there we can talk to the TOP guys, see if we can find mutually convenient dates. Once we do, we can check to see if the facility's are available that date.

    I will be glad to help, but I cant touch anything with a 10 foot pole until mid June. It might be too late to jump in, but I will offer my help again when that time comes around.
