I finally realized that I should just go to any show to enjoy the people and the cars and not ever worry about the trophies! Many vote for their own club members, others don't really know what they are looking at etc. I even know a judge of first gens and have witnessed disagreements among judges at a point show.

I love the Camaro family in particular. I have made friends all over the US and Canada as a result of the shows I have attended. I no longer care about getting a trophy. I am happy to support the charities that most of them contribute to and love to meet up with friends.

Having said that, anyone that has a show should have classes and if it's classic cars, then they should make it clear to the newer car owners so the expectations are set correctly.

Frankly, I see too much ego in many of these organizations and shows to get too involved myself. I just enjoy the people that I get to meet and hang out with. I think some of the best gatherings are when folks like those here, meet and have a mod day or something like that. Beats sitting in a chair all day and cleaning your car hoping to get a trophy.

This is of course, just my humble opinion from years of these shows and clubs. Pretty much the only reason I am going to the Bud show is the people from here that are going and some friends from the East Coast Camaro club. Same with the ECCC show in Hudson. If not for Ken Howe, Mike Sullivan and people here that attend, I wouldn't go. But now I digress....

Peace out.
I agree Dan. I am also in this ECCC. A few real good folks.

Not a fan of any of their shows.

The bass pro cruise night is the only good one. But thats a cruise night.

It's'not about winning a trophy. It's'about not even being judged by the show sponsors after you pay an entry fee thinking that you are being treated equally.

According to Mass Cruisers, we are not even worthy of consideration.

We tried that in early may i think of the near 100 members only 24 even signed up. Then the show fell apart... But i agree we should really do a show for the club.

Now if we could just get someone with a lawn in central mass area that way we'd all be going relatively the same distance. the CT guys don't like coming north i think it's to far from new york for them to feel safe.

Patrick Touhey Bob, to put you at ease.I called the car show director. This is the second year we have done the awards as the top 25 cars that the judges like, There no classes at Autofest, unlike the Seekonk show and in years past when we had our show in Medway. So, the awards will be spread around to all cars, depending on how the judges feel.And I am not a judge. Your car could get an award if they like it. Feel better???

Bob Cavanaugh Thank you Patrick. It wasn't really about winning, it was more about being excluded.

You will not have to remind me about not going to there show .... they made the wrong comments to the wrong people.
I have never gone to a show expecting a trophy .... I have just recently received two trophies in as many weeks, if you were there and saw my face you would have known I don't expect anything I go for the people, friends, I like hanging out with them more than the cars!! The cars are what brought most of us together in witch I love them for.
I could keep going but that's what I have to say. Bob I hope to see you soon at a non mass cruisers show!
thanks for the update Al
