Title: So... what do we call it next year?
Post by: computerworks on July 02, 2020, 12:43:24 AM
Saw an interesting question on the Forum the other day.... let's expand it and have some fun.

Since SAAC-45, the 2020 National Convention, fell to Covid-19...

What do we call the 2021 National Convention?

...or....your suggestion?   8)

The conventions are labelled in sequence of the event not by year ( as in SAAC 2020), so the next one is SAAC 45.  It was postponed, not deleted. 8)

SAAC 45 because there has not been a SAAC 45 yet. So where is it going to be/

I vote for a less prestigious track. So it can be a stand alone show instead of piggy backing the SVRA. That way we can have more track time. Possibly even less money. Have better place for pits instead of the SVRA having the better, closer pits.

What do we call the 2021 National Convention?

  • SAAC-46, since SAAC-45 goes in the books as "Cancelled"
  • SAAC-45, with 2020 as a "null year"
  • SAAC-45A
  • SAAC-45.1
  • SAAC-2021, and change the whole sequence system

Remember the Basketball season that didn't happen a few years ago because of a strike? Everyone one was saying ...OOOH my gawd what are we going to do? Then in reality no one really cared and life went on without it, until the following season. Something similar im sure.  45 CANCELLED-  46 WE BEGIN AGAIN !

Regardless of the year 2020, 2021 or something else the next SAAC convention will be the 45th convention. SAAC 45 works for Me.

+1.   Continuing to use the actual number should help spectators from constantly asking the question "How many conventions have there been?"

SAAC-45 v2

I wholeheartedly agree about a less prestigious place. Back to us, keep costs in check, less flash, more gas.

Best suggestion yet.  Add it to the hats and shirts if the ones for SAAC 45 are already done. 8)

Back to Willow Springs. 2 tracks since we were last there. Lots of CS history. Put up a tent and have In-N-Out cater the dinner. No big hotels around but enough small ones. Or go to Buttonwillow where we've never been and use Bakersfield (35 minutes away) with a few big hotels.

I like this idea, make it SAAC, like it used to be.

+1 on Willow Springs!   Plenty of new/newer Courtyard by Marriott  and Hampton Inn style hotels in Palmdale/Lancaster, which are about 25 miles away.
And more than a few long, straight, very few cars, rural roads on which to get there.

Call the first day SAAC 45 and name the following days SAAC 46 than you could keep the numbers. Lol.   Or have  SAAC 45 in December. Used to have the  show in Vegas. Call it SAAC 45
