Drive at Dawn Hats

Has anyone who participated in the Drive at Dawn event received their hat yet?  The initial time estimate was around 2 to 3 weeks if I remember correctly. Hopefully soon 😉

Several people have posted about the hats they received, and yes, your will be coming ASAP if you replied back to the email we sent to you a few days after the contest!

Thanks for the quick reply!  I did respond back to the email with the requested info, but oddly I got another email a few days later asking for the same info...so I replied again.  That little mixup got me thinking that I somehow got dropped.  Anyway, wife & I (we both participated) will continue to be patient 😆

Again, thanks for the response!

" We have a lot of them to mail out!"

 

I bet that's one part of Hagerty's promotional expense that will be going over budget.

Glad I came here to check, I was beginning to think it may have gotten lost in the mail! 🙂

Just want you guys to know that I received my hat this past Thursday and it was left on the front stoop in the rain in an unsealed box. The good news is it was still in the box protected by a zip lock plastic bag. Looks Great! Thanks Hagerty!

Hoping these are still being mailed out.  2 of my friends got them a couple weeks ago and I'm still waiting.

Is anybody else a little disappointed? The original promotion clearly stated "How to Score a Sweet Dawn Patrol hat..." just like the ones distributed by Hagerty at the Pebble Beach Concours. Even Jack Baruth's follow up article was titled "Hagerty's 2020 Dawn Patrol Award Hats..."

 

There were photos of previous year's caps clearly showing "Dawn Patrol" on the front. As I recall, one of the posted photos back on August 16th was of a woman wearing a 2018 "Dawn Patrol" cap. Was anyone else surprised to receive a cap embroidered across the front with "Drive At Dawn"? Not exactly a Pebble Beach souvenir. 

 

Imagine, if after canceling the Indianapolis 500 this year, a promotion went out with the offer, "Earn an 'The Indy 500. Memorial Day 2020' cap just like the ones worn in Victory Lane". Then after the respondents complied with the instructions, they received a cap emblazoned with the words "That 500 Mile Race. Speedway, Indiana Summer 2020". Just not quite the same somehow, don't you think?

 

A neighbor and fellow Hagerty member asked me, "Why don't you just return it?" I told him I would consider the notion, but of course I would have to include the disclaimer: Please Allow 12 to 14 Weeks For Delivery.

Certainly disappointing, but at least you’ve received yours - still haven’t got ours! And yes, I was hoping for a dawn patrol hat (not a drive at dawn hat)

I haven't received my hat yet either , but I'm guessing it is just taking some time....have faith!!
