Washington ***** for car audio anything. The shops around here try to sell you crap, half-*** installs and apparently do not know crap about building boxes. They are over-priced retards that take no real interest in car audio. This is the saddest state I have ever seen. NONE of the big organizations EVER seem to want anything to do with Washington and all of the car audio shops are too much of pansies to ever try to set something up on their own. What a freakin useless state. I regret ever coming back here.

I came from a state that actually gives a **** about this stuff. I've been watching these forums for a long time and nobody really cares. "Oh its too far, my girlfriend might get mad, I have to work, blah blah blah." I would do everything possible to get to a show in western washington. Gee it might cost a MAXIMUM of 200 bucks (including a motel for the night) because I seriously dout there is ever going to be anything going north of Seattle.

You dont need a car audio shop to do an event. Just have to have the space and some smaller towns, you can get LARGE spaces from the city for dirt cheap (or nothing) that can house LOADS of people. Longview is a good town for that. But of course "its too far" "does it cost anything" bo freakin hoo.

This statement is only half true.

Washington State used to be one of the Top Car Audio/Car Show states on the west coast (Second to California) I used to drive up from Southern Oregon to Minitruckin Shows And audio comps almost every other month or more back in 95-98.

I do not know how long you have been here and I am sure you know this but ALOT of High end Car Audio Companies used to reside here in WA. And there was plenty of Audio competitions going on around.

HART, Audio control, Adire, R/T, Rodek and one state away Phoenix Gold ect ect.


Somewhere along the line Car Show's have been dumped down to HIN and very small Old School Hot Rod Shows <-- some great ones, But As far as audio comps go They are pretty much extinct now, I donít even see Car Toy's (yes I know they were not the best but still it was something fun to do) having them at all this summer and the summer is almost over.


Maybe someone with the time and energy will bring back the audio scene up here.

What is and is not the best is a matter of personal perspective without regard to actual facts about the company. Crunch is not the "best" but I love that company like no other. I hated some of the older stuff because the names they seemed to have for their equipment was simply retarded. I used Orion since I was in high school when they were located in Tempe Arizona right next to me in Phoenix. I swore by them and they made some good stuff. They still make really good stuff. SO, what is the best is simply a matter of personal perspective.

All this "good money" is a noise permit from the city and your time. Advertisement can be as simple as a flyer which can easily be placed in numerous counties at colleges, fairs, telephone poles, and businesses. My printer can whip out 5000 copies in nothing flat and all it will cost me is maybe one ink cartridge for $28.99. Let not forget that you can advertise in numerous newspapers and online which will not cost much either. You can also advertise on your website for free and places like here for free. SO you really have no real viable excuse as to why you dont actually do it.

07-30-2009, 04:43 PM
Can I take you up on the 5k of flyers for 28.99?:D

mrezstreet Is working on getting a show for you guys, We have been talking about having Boomin Audio run the show since thats what we do. Would you be willing to help with advertising to make this event a sucess? Would be cool to have shows in Washington!

I've been reading all these WA threads and just had to sign up to reply. I'm an IASCA judge since about 98. For the past couple years I've ended up judging a ton in Vancouver BC, but I'm trying to bring some shows to WA. There's a promoter up there that asks me a lot to do their SQ judging. I'm doing 3 shows in August and 3 more in September. Just been busy over the past few years (kids, career, etc) to try to bring some to WA. Eventhough I'm still busy, I'm just going to dive in and try. I'm working on a possible one in Wenatchee with a hot rod show on Oct 3 (will post a new thread on that one tonight). But the promoter in BC is kind of offering a free (kind of free for whoever hosts, but will still have entry fees) IASCA show to anyone interested. Anyone interested?

Also, since I just joined, anyone know if you can send private messages on here?

I am going to do my best to bring it back....I do not have endless cash...and I do have 5 kids at home asking if I have to work all night again.....to put on a show for u guys with nice trophies is a weeks pay check for some guys...out of my pocket....if I can't see a return on it why would I shell out the cash for you to play( I don't make $ off the show)? Well I love the sport...and the truth is spl guys don't just happen....its something the you get a bug and follow....shows help the bass head population....

Get a hold of Team Shadow (http://www.westcoastextremespl.com/) - Robert might be able to help you get set up with judges and make it a sanctioned IASCA show. He's willing to do something at a low cost right now. We were talking back and forth about how to get some shows going in Washington and he mentioned he could keep the entry fees and provide score sheets, judges (I think Robert himself) and equipment and you would have to provide an outlet to plug the RTA into, advertising, and trophies (if you wanted to give out trophies). If you have any questions, just shoot me a PM.

Outside show sat in nov 1st 3rd and 4th satdy r open....

09-11-2009, 09:03 PM

which fairgrounds again?
and will we be using a TL this time?

mrezstreet
09-11-2009, 09:41 PM
Grace harbor fair grounds ( emla 98541 )
If you are still open to bringing the TL its on.....is the inside or outside best...I think what I'm ganna do is base it on subs....and I will have $$$ to rent so might do like 10-15 $ per car and do a deal like 1st place gets 30% 2nd 20% and 3rd gets 10% of what's in the class money pool...and it will help cover at lest some of the cost for renting the place....how's that's sound? Power and bats will be unlimited...and if you are walled you jump a class

RidnClean
09-11-2009, 09:45 PM
yeah i can bring the TL.
its Grays Harbor i think lol?

i'd say inside to call it safe for a rainy day ya know?
but are we limited if we do it inside?(space i mean)

if so, then i'd do it outside.
