Indy Fans Tweet Up
Hosted By: @IndyFansTweetUp
Welcome to the Indy Fans’ Tweet-Up!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Indy Fan’s Tweet-Up! We’d been hearing a lot from you guys this off season, how you all missed each other, and how talking over the old interweb thingy just wasn’t the same as actually getting together in person. I know. In this day and age who would have imagined that people would still crave actual person to person contact. Craziness! So we decided to step in and help...
We knew we wanted to find a location. We needed somewhere big. Somewhere with a racing theme. Somewhere where if the Polar Vortex is still out staying it’s already most unwelcome welcome, it wouldn’t affect our event. So we went to see one of the most Indy fan friendly venues here in town, somewhere where we know many of you already hang out, and much to our amazement, they said YES!
So our first Indy Fans’ Tweet-Up will be at Fastimes in their event room on Sunday 16th March, from 1.00-3.00pm. It’s the day before the official Indycar pre-season test kicks off in Barber, and two weeks before the season opener in St Pete, and the day after the Sebring 12 hours for those of you whom are sporty minded too. So we thought that worked rather nicely as time for you all to get together and have the opportunity to pontificate in person on whom is going to be on it in 2014, and who is going to be out to lunch.
Normal Fastimes rates, rules and regs will apply for those of you wanting to race, and we will have a competition for fastest time of the Tweet-Up running throughout the afternoon. Junior karts will also be available for children over 53 inches with a consenting parent present. For those under 53 inches, we are organizing some Indycar coloring in, Indycar trivia, and a couple of other games being organized by Amy - who is otherwise known in these circles as “Open Wheel Mom”.
We are hoping to have a few MRTI drivers stop by throughout the afternoon, some of whom will do Q&As, and some of whom you may even be able to persuade to come race with you on track. We are also currently putting together a prize table of small Indycar themed goodies for those of you who take part in our games, or the on track lap time competition. We will update you on details of what prizes we have, and who will be stopping by via all our social media outlets as we get closer to time.
(Yes, we said “all” like that. We’re @indyfanstweetup on Twitter, @indyfanstweetup on Instagram and Indy Fans Tweet Up on Facebook... Holla...)
Finally, other than purchasing your races, or drinks and snacks, our event is free! All we ask is you click the little “Yes” button to let us know whether you plan on attending so we can get a head count as we get closer to time!
We can’t wait to see you guys!!
