    Boport goodie suggestions?

    Those that attended the last reunion know I proudly donated one of our roller cams to "the cause" and as you know reunion time is coming up again...

    I'd like to feel out what you guys would like to see this year. I'm toying with the idea of donating a hot off the shelf big valve kit with our new full inconel exhaust valves. This would be a kit with valves, springs, retainers, locks and instructions.

    I could also donate another roller cam, that seemed to be a popular item from what I gathered from the giggidy Gator. Another 1.5, or would a 1.1 be more desirable to most of you guys? Of course matching HLA's would be included with this one.

    I wish I could donate both, but things just aren't all that great here unfortunately. Maybe a combo of valves and the cam by itself, and the winner could purchase the HLA's or spring kit at a special discounted price? 10% off?

    Just throwing idea's out there guys, I really value your support and want to show that by making sure you guys are taken care of this year. Let me know!

    Either way, if I win you'll be getting more business from me for something!

    It would be stoopid for the person being gifted not to buy the rest of the set from you!

    I'm with you on the cam, but give warnings against opening up the catalog for the winner to cherry pick. Why? We've seen something similar in the past. The winner starts trying to customize their prize and it goes just a bit too far - causing a riff with the vendor. Kinda like .. blowing on the envelope, then adding more and more to the contents of the letter without adding to the postage. .. if you get my analogy. It's not a good idea. Find something to donate and let that stand. You can not please everyone - so shoot for the majority.

    Bo ... first off, THANK YOU for your continued support of the club. Hopefully, you can join us for a Reunion one year and experience the essence of this club. As for what to donate? My suggestion would be something that works more towards the near stock/mildly modified car and owner. Something that introduces them to your line of items - without putting the cart too far in front of the horse. Your basic cam upgrade or one step higher will always be a coveted prize to the masses.

    Well....as previously mentioned here in this thread Bo was right on the mark with the KIND donations. Something that would introduce Bo's product lines without going too crazy or radical. The 1.1 stage cam was one of the coveted prizes.

    Bo - THANKS!!! I spoke with you earlier this year about building a head for me. I just never got around to pulling the trigger on this part of the car. Now, because of your continued support to the club and hobby, I've got the motivation and will be in contact with you soon to build a head using the cam you donated this year.

    As always, thanks to SVOCA as well. A lot of this club is about the car, but most of it is about the members.
