THREE Weeks to go!

Post by DPDISXR4Ti » Fri May 16, 2014 11:01 am

It's the final count-down to Merkurs at Carlisle 2014! Three weeks from today it's game on!

Lots of you have already registered for the show, but don't sweat it if you haven't - just drive to the fairgrounds and register at gate 3 when you arrive.

At this moment, the hotel still has a few rooms left, but only a few, so act quickly if you want a room for one, two, three, or more nights.

Need another reason to attend? How about the chance to win one of TWO MC2Racing.com differential mounts which will be given away Saturday night at the hotel? Why two? Well, last year Brad screwed up and left one home, so now this year we catch up and give away two! One will be the grand prize - the final thing to be given away - all the tickets go back in the hat for that drawing. The other one will be given away via a crazy contest about to be announced by MC2Racing. Watch this space for details to be announced soon!

Still have questions? Post your question in this forum.

Three weeks to go until we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "death" of Merkur! I'm already loading up the casket - it will be an open casket, so please warn your children in advance - "viewing hours" will last all weekend. Out of respect, please wear black! Else, we'll sell you a charcoal-black Carlisle 2014 embroidered shirt.

As mentioned by Brad, thanks to a clerical error at last year’s Carlisle giveaway, the debut of the new-design Aluminum & Polyurethane Diff Mount at Carlisle actually took place at Brad’s house instead.  In support of that which makes Carlisle so fun and enjoyable for Merkur owners, we’ll be donating a diff mount this year…and also a Scorpio diff mount adapter plate! However, we need a little help figuring out what to do with the extra mount. Should we give it to you? Maybe we should! Maybe we want to hear why though! To enter the contest, simply complete the below sentence on the MCA Forum in Brad’s “THREE Weeks to go!” thread here:

http://forum.merkurclub.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=27117

…or stake your claim by posting on the mc²racing Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/mc2racing

Here is the sentence to complete: “The mc²racing diff mount will end up in my hands because…”

Basically, we’re playing Cards Against Humanity Merkur-style. Much like Cards Against Humanity, the winner will be chosen for no particular rhyme or reason.

We want the Carlisle buzz to spread across North America, so feel free to enter the contest even if you cannot attend Carlisle this year. If we select your entry and you’re not able to pick up the diff mount at Carlisle, just cover shipping and we’ll have it sent your way. Either way, we’ll announce the winner during Carlisle, so get your entry posted!

The mc²racing diff mount will end up in my hands because…

It already is. Therefore, by selecting me, I won't need to transport it to Carlisle, thus saving an immense amount of fuel. Being "green" is hip, cool, and American. You ARE an American, aren't you? Or are you a communist? The choice is yours.

I know this was part of your master plan all along Brad, and I'm merely a puppet to your design.

But wait, you weren't supposed to say that! Damn it, that's what I get for buying my puppets at the dollar store.

The mc²racing diff mount will end up in my hands because at Carlisle, I always win stuff that I can't use. Remember these gems? :lol:

The MC2 differential, if it ends up in my hands will be given away to the Merkur owner who appears at Carlisle and appears to have the greatest need.
Or maybe just a coin flip ? Team vote ?
