Event Description

We are in the planning stages for a car show in Helen the last Saturday in October. Benefit for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This will be a Halloween themed open car show. The owner is talking about some large cash giveaways but we are yet to settle on the amounts as well as the awards. Will post as soon as decided. Roger
We settled on the prizes...Total value over $5000. Cash is $2000 in hundred dollar bills. We'll give away $100 bills all day long. Register a car to get a door prize ticket. Buy a go-cart ride $15, receive a door prize ticket, Buy a haunted Helen ticket $15, receive a door prize ticket. Concert that night in the Theater. Kingsmen Quartet and Mark Pitts as Elvis..$10, get a door prize ticket...Buy a package deal, 1 of each, $25, get a door prize ticket....Awards top 25 plus best of show. Trunk or treat for the kids...12 and under costume contest. Come join the fun....and see some cool rides...
Getting close....If we can make this show a success for the event holder (myself),lol, and the owner, we're planning a 3 day inside show in December...say Dec 3,4,5. Details to be ironed out. It's the off season in Helen so look for a lot of freebies and bargains. Got a lot of motel accomodations to give away at this show for the December show. We need everyone to come out...Need a big crowd. You don't need a car to have a great time...but the more cars, the better.

I feel bad for you Roger, Tell chuckle knuckles to enjoy his parking lot. I would much rather go to a show where the person throwing the show cares about cars or at least has a intrest. I understand buisness, I own two, but he needs to learn how to make things worthy of a three hour trip one way. Good luck Roger

I personally would rather the car owners get all door prizes.

Well...The give-aways aren't within my control. The owner of the place is furnishing them, thus he dictates how they are given away. He could care less about cars there. He wants a crowd. I have some of the same feelings you do but I understand where he's coming from. If he doesn't get people in his go cart track, or in Haunted Helen, or in the concert, he doesn't get a return on his investment. I hope he has a crowd, so maybe next time, he'll listen to my suggestions and make it more of a car show, not just a crowd pleaser. I hope you do show, the more cars I get there, the more reason he has to support the car owners. We are the reason for the people coming to begin with. And believe me, I understand where you're coming from.

It's a shame we spend alot of money & time on cars, pay to bring them them to shows, pay to enter shows, chance that some idiot will scratch are cars at the show, & in this case pay for candy for trunk or treat. Finally, there is a show that actually has a decent amount of money to give away, but not awarding some money to winners sounds pretty unthankful. Without nice cars you don't have a car show you have a parking lot, your door prizes ($$$$) are going to be awarded to anyone with or without a car. So why bring a nice car or any car at all. I was at a show here recently & recieved, best camaro, best paint, best of show, & dealers choice & I was happy as hell. They gave some other guy a thousand dollar door prize, but at least he had a car in the show. My wife asked me, why did I worry about making a car so nice, if I don't win money with it. I think that is a fare question. ..

All the cash will be given as door prizes. We're giving plaques for the top 25 and BEST OF SHOW. You don't have to have a car in the show to qualify for door prizes but.....

Are you giving cash awards, trophies or a combo of the two for the winners?
