A Few Things That I Have Noticed — And They Frustrate Me A Little!

So I have been doing this for a while… and when I say ‘this’, I mean helping promote car shows, running this website that includes the event calendar that has other organizations or peoples events on it, and hosting events.

Here recently, there have been some things happening that just frustrate me when it comes to what I do… So here is my list!

  1. Car show flyers with no contact information – When hosting an event, you want people to get in touch with if they have questions.  I have a disclaimer on my calendar page, that tells people to contact the event organizers if they have questions.  I am not in the business of answering questions for them.  At the very least, have a phone number that people can call for information.  Remember, not all people have email, Facebook, internet access, and other technologies.  Some people like to call and talk to an actual person!
  2. Website with outdated information – If you are running a website, please keep your information up to date.  For instance, I am helping with an event in April and we have gotten phone calls, because of another website that still has last years event listed on it, and people that want to attend think it’s this years event.  If you aren’t going to update the information, then take the site down, or at the very least remove old information (but then again, it’s not being updated).
  3. Facebook Events – Please don’t create duplicate events, especially if you are not the organizer.  I have seen multiple events recently that are being created by others, when their is already an event that was created by the organizer.  You are just confusing the attendees and they won’t get the updates from the organizer.  If you run a group or page, you can share the original event and it shows up on your list of events on your FB group or page.

I could probably think of other things if i took some time, but this has been on my mind for a while and was trying to figure out how to put it.  If you are wanting to put on a car show, it is hard enough to get the word out so that people will want to attend without making it hard for people to get the information.  it also makes it tough, when there are so many car shows on the same day – see the dates on the calendar page!

Well, there it is… I feel much better after being able to say all that.   I am not saying it to offend anyone or put anyone down.  I am saying it to help us all out, because we all love this hobby, and I love what I get to do, even this technical website, interweb stuff.  It’s here to hopefully make everyone’s life easier and a way to help people promote their events.

Now, get out there and get those cars and trucks cleaned up and get ready for another Car Show and Kruzn season!

Friday Night Kruzn – May 2016

Unfortunately we had to hold Friday Night Kruzn a week early in May, but that didn’t keep you from coming out.  We ended up with almost 60 cars in the Village.  That made for a great night, with some awesome cars, and some great friends.

I just want to say thanks for all those that have supported us this past year at Friday Night Kruzn…

Here are some pictures from May’s Friday Night Kruzn!

Friday Night Kruzn – 2016

2016 is here and I hope each of you have a wonderful time through the holidays and was able to spend some quality time with your family and friends.  Now it’s time to gear up for the 2016 car show and cruise night season.  At StillKruzn, we have already started talking about Friday Night Kruzn and looking forward to kicking it off on March 18, 2016 at the Village at Hendrix.  This year, Friday Night Kruzn is being presented by StillKruzn, Pro Auto Collision and Preston Palmer Studios, and sponsored by the Purple Cow – Conway and ZaZa’s.

 

Just a little history on this little event.  It started in October of 2014, I hosted the first event just to test the waters to see if this was even going to fly.  It seemed to have a positive response, so in 2015 we started it as a monthly cruise night with sponsorships from Pro Auto Collision and the Purple Cow.  Later in the year ZaZa’s and Preston Palmer Studios also came on board.  The first night in March of 2015, we have about 20 cars show up.  In October 2015, we had almost 80 cars in attendance and many spectators.  We are the only cruise night that I know of in Arkansas that has live music.

 

We try to offer things that make us a unique cruise night to stand apart from the others.  The atmosphere of Friday Night Kruzn feels like an old town square, and that is what makes it so cool for me.  Just a gathering of friends, a time of fellowship, and that is what it is all about.  I keep saying, that it’s not about the awards, or even the cars (although it is about the cars a little bit), it is about the people, the friends you make over time.

 

That’s about it…. so we are hoping you will come out and join us for Friday Night Kruzn this year.  I am not sure how we will top last years events, but we will do everything that can to do it!  Hope to see you out there!
