The trophy deal up here is a club getting together and swinging all their votes to the club members or a bunch of guys getting together and voting for each other "hey whats your car number mines 22 Ill vote for you" a large club can pull all the trophys at some showsLOL,I hate that! especially when a strange car cruises into a show that's nice and they loose a trophy because of not getting the votes they really deserve
!!!!! I like the dash plaques and The comradery at shows (HELL with trophys)! I judged a show a couple of years ago and the police chief had a car in it and he didn't open the hood so he lost points and lost out on a trophy, but the city counsel gave him a trophy anyway by taking it from one of the winning cars! They told me he rated extra attention! My GOD HE was the CHIEF!!!!
Politics, greed, favoritism, have taken over the small town and city shows ! City's put on shows to bring in shoppers,and tourists you can't ban dogs or bikes (it may offend the spectators)!!!!
Take for example the 4th of July its Thursday but around here its on the 6th.
the parade and fireworks are Saturday LOL Because that's when the weekenders and vacationers are in town!!!!LOL Its now a 6th of July Independence Day celebration not for the local familys and kids its for greed when the money comes to town! I may sound cynical but its the way it is in this day and age! Hell the county fairs aren't at harvest time their in the spring & summer months so county's don't conflict and pull the money from each other!!! Ones going on now a kid has to buy his corn at a market to put it in competition for a blue ribbon and he's sponsored by a local business there's no way he can actually grow it!!! I yearn for the days of my youth when a Holiday was a "Holiday" and car shows were fare and fun! and advertizing wasn't the main focus of everything you see and hear, and fairs were in the fall at harvest time and the winners of the blue ribbons went to the state fairs for a competition for gold ribbons, when Winston cup racing was in and cars didn't advertise feminine napkins and Viagra and drugs and a driver was a driver (not an athlete LOL) Hell poker is on the sport channels now when did poker become a sport LOL !@!
Just a little rant by me
OH! And farting is ok to people now and farts are in kids cartoons now so the word fart is ok to kids and to cut a big loud one in mixed company is except-able and funny ( But POPEYE IS OUT BECAUSE HE SMOKES A PIPE) LOL
I'm going to a local car show Saturday LOL I hope they have nice DASH plaques & not these cheep computer printed laminated things done on someones home computer! And Im tired of getting scented candles or "Honor our veterans caps" that are made in VIETNAM
in the goody bags
Jester ( This I hope amused some of you guys LOL
