Roses&Thorns

January 22, 2012

Roses to a meeting being set this Wednesday to get plans moving for the June 21-24 Quaker City Weekend Cruise. This event is for all ages, across all demographics. You don't have to be a gearhead to enjoy the fun. It draws thousands to our city and is the best people magnet we have to offer. Don't mess with it. A template is in place thanks to the hard work of many including Steve Andres and Jerry Wolford. They presumably won't be consulted because of, well, petty politics. But those now involved can follow the framework in place. The city has run the event the past two years without any kind of negative incident. It even has been profitable - raising $18,000 during those two years. That breaks down to $7,000 in 2010 and $11,000 last year. That's after paying for the cops. A key will be getting someone who knows what they are doing to market and sell ads for the popular informational brochure that is put out.
