Actually it is probably the opposite. Companies hosting these types of events usually ask their field staff to document peoples' experiences. It gives the folks at HQ an idea of how the event is going and makes follow-ups easier. "Hey, we saw you had fun at our event, even had a shirt to show your enthusiasm..." That sort of thing.

Except for the fact that the staffer let xc drive when she's 18, which potentially could have exposed Scion to liability issues if the age requirement is due to an insurance policy only covering drivers 21 and older. I think it's best if the staffer remains anonymous.

Ahh, sorry I missed that part. Well good for him for letting a young enthusiast drive the car! And good for us for being smart enough to use the private message system so he doesn't get an unnecessary slap on the wrist!
