Camaros on the Bridge
(Yes, there are rules!)
**Failure to comply with the above rules, may affect your future participation in this event.**
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I Have to Register My Camaro?
A: Absolutely. All Camaros must register to get a spot on the London Bridge for this event.
Q: What is the Registration Deadline?
A: Friday, January 12, 2018 at 11:59pm (Pacific). Registration is now closed for the 2018 event.
Q: How Will I Know Where I'll Be on the London Bridge During the Photo Op?
A: Your Confirmation Number will determine your position. The sooner you register, the closer you'll be to the front of the Bridge. If you are not a member of the COTB crew, do not show up before 6:30am at the staging area. Arriving early will not change your position in line.
Q: What If All the Bridge Spots Are Full?
A: If the Bridge photo op is full, there will be a waiting list for anyone who wants to go. You would still be able to hang out for the weekend; your Camaro just might not be in the Bridge photos.
Q: Is There a Fee to Register?
A: Yes, the Registration Fee is $20.00 per Camaro. The fee includes 1 free t-shirt. You will not receive a Confirmation Number until you have submitted a fully completed Registration Form and your Registration Fee. The Registration Fee is non-refundable if you cancel or do not show up. We still have to pay the police and other expenses regardless of the number of Camaros participating. No shipping on the t-shirts; you must be able to pick them up at the check-in table. Fees are payable via www.PayPal.me/COTB. Send money to a friend. If you do not have PayPal, contact us for an alternate way to pay.
Q: Am I Required to Check-In Or Can I just Show Up Saturday Morning at the Staging Area?
A: Yes, check-in is required so that we can verify the number of Camaros and people who have registered. Check-in will be at the host hotel on Friday, January 26, 2018 between 12noon-9:00pm. No late check-ins will be accepted this year. It causes too many issues when we're trying to stage the cars on Saturday morning and people are trying to check-in.
Q: Do I Have to Attend the Driver's Meeting on Friday, January 26, 2018 at 9:15pm?
A: Yes, the Driver's Meeting is mandatory so that you can make sure you get all the information you will need for Saturday morning and know what's going on. This will take place at the host hotel.
Q: Are Walkie Talkies Required for This Event?
A: Yes, walkie talkie radios are required for this event. They will not be provided to you. You must have a walkie talkie for each Camaro you bring. You will be asked to bring your walkie talkie to check-in to ensure it is working properly and on the correct channel. This is for communication with the organizers during the event to make sure you are where you should be, when you should be there.
Q: Where Do We Park at the host hotel?
A: There is plenty of parking at the host hotel and they will block off a section of the parking lot for us.
Q: How Do You Know I Am Here?
A: There will be a registration table set up off of the main lobby at the host hotel. You will need to check-in to receive instructions, an itinerary & a wristband that you MUST have in order to drive onto the Bridge. You will also test your walkie talkie at check-in. No Wristband & No Walkie Talkie = No Bridge! Only pre-registered cars are allowed on the Bridge.
Q: How Do I Know Where to Go?
A: When you check-in, you will receive a wristband in one of three colors. The wristband will coordinate with a specific lane on the London Bridge. Each group will have a leader that you will need to stay behind. This will be the group you travel with on Saturday for all events (Bridge, lunch, etc.). Your group leader will help you through the whole day on Saturday. Please do what they say; they will communicate with you via the radio that you will bring with you. Trust them; they have done this before!
Q: What Do We Do About Meals?
A: Friday night pizza will be available at the host hotel between 4:00-9:00pm. Saturday we will have lunch at Pirate Cove in Needles, CA. Saturday we may do a group dinner if enough people are interested. We're just not sure right now because some people will be leaving Saturday afternoon to go to Las Vegas for the Laps for Charity event on Sunday. You are also free to make your own arrangements but if you are joining us in group meals, please make sure to indicate that on your Registration Form and how many people will be eating with us so we can make sure arrangements are made for the correct number of people.
Q: How Should I Pay for Meals, etc?
A: Make sure you bring cash to make it easier for the servers at the restaurants to get us all in & out quicker & easier. If the servers have to run credit/debit cards for almost 200+ diners, it will take a long time. Also make sure you have cash when checking-in at the registration table in case you want to purchase event photos or extra t-shirts.
Q: What If I Lose My T-Shirt(s), Wristband, etc After I Leave the Check-In Area?
A: Sorry...we cannot be responsible for your property once you leave the check-in area. We are all adults and should be able to keep track of our own stuff. If you lose your possessions, that is on you and we cannot replace them.
Q: What if I Need My Car Washed When I Get Into Town?
A: One of our sponsors is a mobile detail company and will be at the host hotel on Friday for anyone who wishes to have their car washed before the big photo op.
Q: What Should I Bring With Me?
Q: What’s the Weather Like in Havasu?
A: Be prepared for cold & windy OR warm & sunny. That’s the way it usually is in Havasu at this time of year. We’ve had both in past years. Bring warm clothes just in case you need them; “layering” is recommended.
Q: I Like to Go My Own Way, OK?
A: Have fun with that! We know there are shorter routes to take. When’s the last time you did it with 100+ cars following you? We have to stay together, know where everyone is & have everyone follow the routes. It’s just easier for everyone involved.
Q: Sometimes I Run a Little Late. Is That Cool With You?
A: Our timing is down to the minute on Saturday – starting at 6:30am. At 7:45am, you will find an empty parking lot! We love you but we will not wait for anyone. You will receive an itinerary with all of the times; please stick to it. We have 100+ Camaros & are shutting down the London Bridge. It must go like clockwork. You will thank us for it later!!
Q: We Need to Stop for Gas…Be Right Back…
A: ALL Camaros must be gassed up & ready to go FRIDAY night. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Q: Will It Be OK If I Do a Little Hotrodding on the Cruise?
A: Absolutely not!! We will have 100+ cars on the road (a little easy to spot from the air or highway)!! You will ruin it for all of us. We will do the speed limit only!! We know you have a fast car; we don’t need you to prove it. This goes for the whole time we are together in the Lake Havasu City, AZ/Needles, CA area. No peel outs, donuts or racing in Lake Havasu, Needles or Las Vegas at any time during this event weekend (especially not in the host hotel parking lot at 4-5am). Stay cool & hotrod on your own time when you return home.
Q: OK If We Drink a Few?
A: Every venue we are going to will have alcohol available. Be an adult. Please use good judgment! We don’t want to have to take your keys – but we will if necessary. Know when to say when; wait till we get back to the host hotel & your car is parked for the night. PLEASE!
We will be eating lunch at Pirate Cove & staying there for a couple hours. Plenty of booze is available there, so drink responsibly. If you have someone with you in your car, let them drive if you’ve had one too many. Macho is knowing when to hand the keys over!
Q: How Do I Register for the Laps for Charity Event in Las Vegas for Sunday, January 28, 2018?
A: This event required a separate registration through the Speedway Charities website. We will post more information once they have it up on their website.
We want you to have a great time; this has always been an INCREDIBLE weekend!! We have done it the last several years without any major issues. Thanks so much for joining us. We’re so glad you are coming!!
