Steve, will the awards be done by class?
Why no slammin bass?

I'm still working on the details of the cash awards, it's all up to Jammin. I'd run Slammin Bass too, but the radio station is covering all the trophies and they won't go for Slammin Bass on top of the SPL, not to mention the increased time it would take to run both. The entry fee includes the car show and SPL, so everyone there can do SPL, and a lot of them do.

Since it's a $30 fee we'll let people get in 3 runs, providing people don't wait til the end of the show and we run out of time.

This show was sweet last year and I got to walk away with a check too :) I wont be expecting money this year because the Super Street cars all fall under the same category but we will still be there. Going to this show first then heading over to TC's after. Its not everyday you get 2 comps and hour apart from each other!! :)

Can't trust the 16K's, but I've heard the lower ones are pretty decent.

Voltage problems maybe?

The guys at Finals running them were on 18 volt systems, so I kinda doubt it.

How was the show?

Could have been better, had 25 people register for the SPL portion. Keith managed a 164.5 with a taped up windshield, Derek McGregor hit his high with back to back 153.1's.

We handed out 3 special awards today too, Keith Fafard received our Competitor of the Year award, Derek McGregor received the Most Improved SPL for the Super Stock class, and Kathy Maclean won the most Improved Amateur SPL....as well as the Loudest Female SPL of the day. Since Keith was the loudest of the day he received a $100 check from Jammin 107.7, that will help cover the cost of a new windshield.

The SPL portion went well enough, aside from the generator not working at the beginning, and the mix up with the trophies they didn't order. The car show part was a total clusterfuck from what I've been reading on facebook and the car shows forum. They handed out the Best Of Show $500 check to the wrong person, forgot to offer classes they said they would, charged all different amounts of $$ for the entry fee's when you had someone with you, had no judges that actually know anything about cars, put trucks in car categories, put cars into the wrong categories......and the list goes on. From what I'm seeing, there may not be another show for them next year, or at least nobody will be there.
