Thumbs up

Just wanna say that this was a pretty great show! I especially like the way they did the awards, so that people could see which car won, and make it more interactive. I wish more shows did it this way!

I'm glad you enjoyed it, and were able to find it. It was great to see the car running again too.

I missed the awards. So how did they do it that made it so much more interactive?

Haha thanks again for the help! My one complaint would be that the car show entrance was hard to find, and all the festival staff that I asked didnt know where it was either.

But what they did was, get all the winners to line up their cars in front of the announcing table. When they gave out awards, the winning car would drive up to the table and they would present the award. It's a great way for the people to see the winning cars and gives the winner a chance to show it off I've always liked this way of doing it. I mean how many times do you hear "Which car was that??" when awards are being handed out?

I heard a lot of people say it was hard to find, so you definitely weren't the only one. I only knew where to go because of last year. Interesting how people couldn't help with the festival, even staff. That needs to be addressed for sure. I'll pass that onto Madison's head of the festival.

The British car club did an awards presentation like that when they did their very first Eurobrit car show. Definitely neat, but hard to organize for sure. And that's probably why most don't do it. But it is very neat to see. No question who or what car was awarded. Plus, you get to hear it--which to me is half the fun.
