If you’re reading this post the day it went live, the 2017 edition of Driven Calgary is just 4 days away. Four. Cue the madness.
As it always goes, a deadline that was once a few months out is suddenly and unbelievably right around the corner, meaning that the pressure’s on to get all of the decals cut, parts fitted, and cars detailed in time for what is one of the biggest events of the year here in Calgary. This Friday we will be setting up in the Olympic Oval and come Saturday, the doors will open to allow the hoards of spectators to come in, check out the vehicles and other attractions, and see what our community has to offer overall.
Once again officialTHREETWENTY will be represented by a group of vehicles at the show, some of which have shown with us before and others which will be making their debut, so to speak. Each year the judges have to be more and more strict when it comes to screening due to the number of submissions so naturally not everyone who applies ultimately makes it to the show, but I’m proud to say that our entire group – not a massive group mind you but a carefully-selected one – made the cut.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that there will be a few Fords in it once again though they’ll also be joined by Shane’s Integra, Alex’s TL-S, and even my mother’s 240SX convertible.
With all of the preparations to look after over the next few days it’s likely that the site will see no updates until after the show, so I wanted to get something live today just as a mini-update, and additional reminder that the show is taking place this weekend. The address and time are listed at the bottom of this post.
We are very much looking forward to the show of course as it never fails to be a fun day, and hope to see lots of people out! If you find us please feel free to say hi, and we may even have some free officialTHREETWENTY goodies on hand too. We don’t yet know where we will be parked at the venue but stay tuned to our Instagram (officialthreetwenty) to stay up-to-date.
As one final announcement before I sign off, the much-requested This is Our Art T-Shirt pre-order is now live over on the storefront! If you are interested in getting one of these shirts please go reserve one now as there will not be many extras produced. Anyone who pre-orders is of course guaranteed their shirt but afterwards they will only be available in extremely limited quantities. To pre-order yours please click HERE.
With that said, it’s now time to get back to the preparations for the big day. Thank you all as always for your continued support of officialTHREETWENTY, and we all hope to see lots of you at Driven on Saturday. Judging by the teasers and sneak peeks we’ve seen leading up to the show so far, the bar will be raised yet again; our long Canadian winters are good for one thing, and that’s giving people plenty of time to step up their game for the new season. Bring on Driven Calgary!
