For those wondering about GOCC, I am a member of their board of directors. Directors only have been invited. This may be the case with some other clubs. 

This is one of the very few events wise. Especially when it comes to park sponsored events. And I do want to say for the record, if you had been a GOCC member around 2013, you would have been able to go to both Banshee and GateKeeper media day. Starting around 2015 with Fury 325 Cedar Fair stopped inviting so many clubs and club members, and the last few years at least (like Copperhead Strike at Carowinds) this has been their way of doing it: ACE members who have been in club for a while, and some other coaster clubs directors only.

 

 

Fair enough. 
 

I’m not sure what I’ll do ultimately when it comes time to renew or join another club.  As just another member with a short time in service my expectations across the board will be measured.

I hate that it comes to, what I see, as infighting among clubs.  There is nothing wrong with being members of more than one club.  If media day invites are important, you can join ACE for that and be in GOCC or Coaster Crew or TPR for social reasons.  Memberships are very affordable, and the benefits are great in all of them.

I am likely going to join ACE when my GOCC membership ends next month and drop GOCC. This way I might get in future media day events. Is this Fair to GOCC or their fault? No. But I see no point in being in 2 clubs and while they are not expensive. They do cost money. ACE has a lot more events and seems to get a lot more benefits that GOCC did. I hate how this ACE only media day invites policy that Cedar Fair has is going to make more people leave clubs like GOCC and in turn maybe someday cause membership to fall so much the clubs disband.

There is no policy in place by Cedar Fair. ACE wasn't given an invitation to Steel Vengeance, Copperhead Strike or Twisted Timbers. This is just the club the park decided to invite for Orion. No more, no less.

I believe ACE was invited to Twisted Timbers media day.

[mention=10363]King Ding Dong[/mention], I've never heard of COCC.  Is it new?  It will probably not even get included with Coasterstock!

I think he meant to say GOCC which stands for Great Ohio Coaster Club. It’s another coaster club you can join. I used to have a membership, however I never did any of their events. The only reason I had it was to be able to attend Coasterstock and Holiwood Nights. They’ve allowed members of GOCC to attend Coasterstock every year since it started in 2015.

How about Central Ohio Coaster Club, it is more focused.  
Been a tough acronym day dealing with COTC regarding my kid’s CCP.  
I thought maybe there was a division in Coaster Crew. Enthusiasts have debated for so long about the definition of "GiGa" and about RMC topper track being Woodies, that maybe the OVC guy nailed a list of grievances on Mike Koontz's office door. This forced the removal of him and his followers, and they rose to the top and founded COCC...Cream Of the Coaster Crew.

I got this link the other day, but got an email saying registration hasn't opened yet. 

Oh, well then. Guess I should be expecting that email then shortly.

Some info to note about the ACE media event: 

Registering does not guarantee you’re going to be attending. You have had to have been an active member of ACE by Dec. 31, 2019. If you meet that requirement, then how you've treated the park with comments on fan sites and social media will be factored in.

What does active member mean?

I don't even know what that means. I wasn't told anything about that. 

He was just joking around, but yes I assume that since you registered on the 25th you’ll be eligible.
