Mark you calenders, July 27th at 10am will be the 12th annual Sanford Sound bikini Car Wash, Car Show and SPL Sound Off. There will be a 1X dB Drags and Bass race competition along with a sound off run by Sanford Sound. The Db Drags/Bass Race will be run on the Termlab meter as usual, but the Sanford Sound show will be run on the old AC180 meter. The Sanford Sound comp will be handing out trophies for 1st-3rd in each of the 3 classes. They will be really nice ones, a black granite trophy with the event details and class etched into it. They look **** good.

The place is Sanford Sound, 1458 Main St, Sanford Maine. Check out www.SanfordSound.com for more info.

Oh boy that 180 will be a hell of a confidence builder lol

Yup, downside for some is that they won't like seeing the lower number on a real meter. As long as people get to take home a trophy of some kind I'm sure they won't care too much which meter they make a run on.

Save your gas money Marty, cause you'll need it for the ride up there.

I've been talking with people on various forums and it looks like this ones gonna be a good show. Lots of car's and trucks are coming out for the car show and a lot of guys are making the drive for the 3 SPL comps that will be going on at the same time. From what I understand if you compete in the Sanford Sound SPL comp then you'll be able to compete in the dB Drags for either $5 or free, there might be a small fee for Bass Race, but only if you do the Sanford portion.....that ones gonna bring the bigger numbers since they're using the old AC180 meter.

Yeah, since this is a Sanford Sounds show we don't want to take away from his show at all by adding a dB Drags show. Sanford was cool to say we could do a Bass Race and Drags show the same day as their show so we don't want to see people only do our part instead of the Sanford part. So basically if you do the Sanford part we'll give you a good discount on the Drags and Bass Race parts.

It rained a lot last year too, it even rained for like 10 minutes during the show but the field seemed fine, I didn't see anyone getting stuck.

We'll have a couple canopy's set up for the meters and I'm sure a lot of people will have their own too.

It's all taken care of I'm sure. Who cares about the car show portion, as long as the SPL goes good.

I got the pics posted the day the listing went up. And I talked to Wayne on Wednesday and he has the results, he'll have them posted as soon as he manually re-enters all the scores.

I have certificates from that show too, at least for a few people.........got one for you too Jason

great show guys! thanks steve, you do a hell of a job all the time :)
looks like SPL up in this neck of the hood isnt doing too bad :)

I know my buddy "derril" aka Derric Dumont is excited to get his certificates. If you want to send them up maybe we can work something out and i'll cover shipping, i believe you probably have two or so for me as well, idk :laugh:

I heard it rained a bit after I left too huh!?

Rained a bit? That lightning was friggin scary. I thought for sure some us were gonna get killed when we were taking down everything. Rain was coming down sideways, small branches were coming down and lightning was hitting the ground all over the place. All that lightning kept the sky nice and bright the whole time we were breaking down. The rain damaged my cell too, so thats dead. Scared the crap outta my wife and baby, she refuses to go to anymore shows if there's even the slightest chance of rain.

I think SPL would be bigger if more people knew what Bass Race was. I wasn't about to try and explain it all to every single person coming through the lane so maybe next season people will know more about it and want to give it a try. It's a lot easier for rookies to compete and possibly win with Bass Race. I was thinking about possibly doing a nonsanctioned Bass Race show in the area, just to get people more involved in it.
