      Out of their minds to have a Vegas car event in March. Weather alone won’t cooperate. If I go to MATS again, it will be April or later. Been there 10 or more times.

      I went the first 2 years. Car shows on asphalt don't seem right to me though.

        Vegas weather, In March or April you might freeze or cook ! I remember MATS one year when it snowed.

          Some of us with street driven cars have an obstacle. It’s called the Sierras.

              Well I just went onto MATSLV.com and no mention of it being cancelled.
              You would think they could put more effort into telling people. What if I don't do Facebook or come on here? How about an Email or updating their site.

                Just got an Email from Jill. Says they are holding fees for credit towards a new date.
                Hope they can reschedule.

                  The reason they moved it to late March was to get ahead of the hot weather. Can't blame them for that. If it gets postponed until May or later it will be hotter than hell!

                  I wasn't sure I was going to attend anyway this year. That damn PA system they have is intolerable! Too friggn' loud and distorted, no one in the car show, vendor area can even have a conversation without yelling. And the DJ on the PA never shuts up, Bla, Bla, Bla all day long! Plus there's a slight delay between the speaker posts that sets up a super annoying echo effect making it even harder to understand anything being said. OR, maybe I'm just a grouchy ol' bastard who's hearing is going bad. ;) Maybe both.

                    I'm a vendor and I usually can't hear the DJ over the fighter jets buzzing around all day but to me thats just part of the MATS.
