Temecula Rod Run/March 8 & 9, 2013
The Temecula Rod Run will occur on Friday March 8 and Saturday March 9, 2013.
It will be held, as always, in the Old Town area of Temecula. This event draws people not only from California, but from out of state also and they usually have 60,000 visitors attend during this period. This will be our third time having a booth there and we have been the only booth of its kind.
Friday night, the night of the actual Rod Run, the cars cruise down Old Town Front Street. The hours of the event then are from 5pm to 8pm. We will need to arrive at ***3pm*** to set up. No vehicles except show vehicles permitted from 4pm on.
Saturday's show runs from 8am to 4pm. The vehicles are parked on the various streets and parking lots for viewing. There are also food and event related booths present. We will need to be there at ***6am*** to set up. Again, no vehicles after 7am.
We will need 5 volunteers to work each day in addition to me as the coordinator. Two of us will walk the crowd, passing out info about Calguns, four will stay at the booth and we will switch off. Tho there will be numerous food booths and restaurants, you are free to bring your own food and drink. Also bring chairs if you wish, as none are furnished.
If you work Friday, please dress warmly as it will get cold at night.
Anyone who wishes to bring any rifles (no handguns please, tho AR/AK style pistols are Ok.) for display, will have to disable the weapon so it cannot fire (remove the bolt or other necessary parts) and zip tie it. This is a requirement of the Riverside Sheriffs Department. We work with the Riverside Sheriff's Dept. on this event and we have never had a problem.
PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN ARRIVAL TIMES FOR EACH DAY. WE NEED TO BE SET BY 4PM ON FRIDAY AND 7AM ON SATURDAY. MEA CULPA

We will wear the green polo shirt that was worn at the last Rod Run. If you do not have a green polo shirt from working this event or Raahauge's before, please advise us what size you wear when you sign up for whatever day you wish to work. Thank you.
ETA: The location of our booth has changed. We will now be on the S/W corner of 2nd Street and Old Town Front Street. This will be on the sidewalk in front of the Baileys Restaurant/Bar entrance area.
Also, I was informed today (Thursday) when I checked in, this will be the LAST TEMECULA ROD RUN. The owner of the event is moving out of state and the foundation that is owned by him is being shut down. For any of you who thought of attending this event to see the fantastic vehicles that will be there and visit our booth, this is your last chance to do so. It is unknown if the city will ever hold a similar event in the future.
