I think it would be good to have more on the team since it seems like we ALWAYS have a couple/several people who can't make it out to the show. Since there is only so many of us, we get knocked down quickly or right away from getting a trophy if we have a couple people who can't show. If we were to have more, we would have a better chance of having more cars show with us. (im talking about actually showing and entering, not being there to support without their cars).

And besides, its not like our team is all high and mighty above several other car teams out to there be so strict on disclosing potential members. Im just saying our team is still definitely in the works and the main members are still improving on what we have now. I would understand how you feel if we were the status of team menace, but we are still far from that. It's not like we are so hot that people out there are saying "yea, i wish i could be on team imperial".

oh yea, and by the way... thats what happen with the team when shonn recruited the scion guys too... at first he too also said that he just wanted to work on the core members but he still recruited others, and look at where we are now, ITS WAYY BETTER because we got more dedicated people to join.

I'm just re-iterating what we have talked about in the past. Also team exotic or whatever would just have anyone join, I thought we didn't want that? I thought we were trying to keep it at a decent size? Maybe I am wrong, but thats what I thought. I guess what I am wanting is that we just dont let anyone in and thats what it seems like right now. Also if we are letting people in I still strongly believe in the probation period, give each potential new member a few months to see how dedicated they are.

well, shonn did say "And if they're interested in the crew, then through out the day you can drill them about stuff and see how their personalities are. And ya never know, our family may grow a little after this show. Smile". Think of it like this, we get to know them for several hrs at the show to see how they are. If we like them, let them be on probation. If not, thats it. So everyone who will be there that day will get to know them and we can discuss if we all approve or not.

Well since we're all chimin in, here I go.

I personally dont think it should be about winning trophies. Im more in it mainly to have a close knit group of car friends to help out with work or motivate people to mod more...which we do but I think we cant get ahead of ourselves given the fact "we arent team menace" meaning we arent rich enough to spoil are cars in the matter of months. Im not trying to be debbie downer, I just think getting more cars in the club to get more trophies isnt the way to go about it.

I just think we should discuss some sort of cap on the amount of members. Or some sort of procedure for selecting members. Definitely a probation period so it's not like we're the slut club and people wanna be in one minute and fall of the map the next.

I take it the 4 or 5 extras will be parked on one end of us at the show so the actual crew is grouped together....x2 for judging reasons

Well, I appreciate all the feedback. And understand everyones point of view. It's not all about winning. The winning thing is more personal then anything. lol. I do want us to be tight. But with alot of our current members being kinda wishy washy about showing or even just showing up to meetings is very disconcerning. So I am all for having members who actually want to participate more. Because in the end thats what we talked about "participation" So with that being said, i'll talk to you guys on sunday.

I totally agree with you, most of us have other priorities such as school, gf's, wives, other hobbies, etc. I still think that since you are apart of a car crew that it should be a priority and that if you become apart of Imperial that you live up to the expectations we want: mod every two months, etc. I would like to discuss a cap on the amount of members as well. I am happy to have people show with us and of course they can hang out with us, but I guess like what Matt said they will be at one end and we will all be together as Imperial. Hope most of us agree with this and if not then we can have a meeting at the show lol. Hope to see everyone out on sunday!

Oh yeah, I do believe strength is in numbers for now, but like matt said I dont wanna be the slut group. Winning a trophy is great because it recognizes that are hard work has paid off, but that is not the main goal right now for the team.

I gotta agree with Matt and Eric. But just want tosay Team Menace aren't rich they just got really dedicated members and also they have Sponsers from like 7 companies. Sponsers make everything easier. Ken with 350Z worked 2 jobs for almost a year. Didn't go out. Just to get his 350Z the way it is now.

But anyways...... i'm bringing a cooler with ice. who bringing drinks? and i was thinking someone can get a loaf of bread and sandwhich meat.

Ok what exactly you mean on focus on the core members? What exactly do you mean by focusing? I think were "tight enough". Do you want to become BFF status or what? Like Tinh mentioned, Us as you put it "scion guys" put alot of effort and dedication into the group. What makes you think others can.

I just dont understand this "focus on the core group". If we do that its going to be the same stuff at every show, not everyone has money to do a drastic mod every two months. But i also agree that the whole "slut thing" is true too. If there interested, lets see if their truely interested. Probation needs to be stern. If you cant make it to two shows or what then your cut. I havent seen some members participate at any shows since i joined but yet there on the team? I understand people have other priororities..but what makes you think the people that attend all the time dont?

Let people join who are serious about it and willing to contribute to the team. Not just show up at one show and not talk to any of the members at all (some know who im referring too). Those type need to be dropped its just wasted space if you ask me. This crew needs to be a family regardless, but this is a TEAM, and teams are ment to compete and try their best to win.
