Car Bashing?

What do you guys think about a car bashing fundraiser? We find a junkyard to donate a mostly intact, non functional automobile for fundraising purposes, and we rope off an area somewhere on campus (with permission, of course) get some safety goggles, gloves and a sledgehammer (and maybe a baseball bat) and charge folks $1 for 3 whacks.

We can either have the glass removed, or tape it front and back with clear tape to minimize glass shattering, and ask the junkyard to drain any fluids from the vehicle. We could set it up on a large tarp, so that cleanup would be easier.

We'd have a better response if we could time it with a big sports event -- but I think it sounds like a fun fundraiser. What are everyone else's thoughts?

Why is the comment tag showing up funky?

How much is it going to cost to have the car delivered and the clean-up afterwards?

An idea I had would be to find out the Sangamon Auditorium calendar, search for young toddler attractions, and have a toddler-oriented event on those days. We could maybe tie in the santa letters and /or other kiddie events.

We would canvass the local junkyards to have a car donated, perhaps they would be willing to deliver it as well. As far as clean up, I would approach the same junkyard to see if they would be willing to tow the carcass away. Club members would be then responsible for canvassing the area and cleaning up any debris left on the ground.

Except for l'homme handicape. He would be in charge of supervising the clean up effort. :)
