ROCKFORD 2017 - The Show Must Go On! And It Will Go On!

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/84598/show-must-go-on591bc2fc85.jpg

Old School and Vintage BMX Show and Swap
4950 Safford Road
Rockford, Illinois 61101

DATE: SATURDAY June 17
9 AM to 3 PM with Trophy Presentations to follow.

This annual event is one of the most exciting Old School Shows and Swaps in the country. Why? Because it takes place right in smack in the middle of the biggest BMX event in the country, The Midwest Nationals! This event draws thousands of BMXers from all around the country for a super high energy weekend of BMX hysteria.

There is NO FEE for show bikes as long as they are reserved by MONDAY JUNE 12 2017. *** To pre-register a bike to show, send an email to kisskrazyjim@gmail.com with your name, make and year of bike, and class you want to enter it in. ***  Reserved vendors will pay $20 which will include an event T-Shirt as long as secured on or before the due date. On site vendors and bike registration will be as follows: Bike entry $5 and Vendors $20 (no shirt).  PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL NOT ACTUALLY PROVIDE A TABLE OR TENT.  THIS IS UP TO THE VENDOR TO BRING.  SPACES WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED AS THEY ARE ON A FIRST COME BASIS.

The park is Alcohol free and it will be enforced. We will be speaking with the event coordinate and hope get the same spot as previous years. That is on top of the hill right up from the starting gate. to follow but this will be the official thread for this event. Parking is not free as a few years back it was abused so revoked it was ! Not a bad fee if I remember is was $10 per day or $25 for the weekend, and we get our own parking area with our show and swap space. This makes it real nice as you can unload your goods right at the event!

I will assign spots this year.  Bikes will be placed in an area of there perspective category. EX: All 70 - 79 bikes together, All Freestyle Bikes Together.  I know some don't like that but thats the way it will be.  The show is FREE ********* You will be able to park right near your swap or show items just like in the past. If you are unsure PLEASE ASK !

In the past this has been a great event and most who have attended come back.  SO LETS HAVE FUN!


********** To qualify for FREE show bikes they MUST be pre registered by JUNE 12 . After that each bike is $5. This will help with the bottleneck at registration as well as offset costs to make the event happen.

We will have a 50/50 raffle which we will draw before awards.

Last year we were done with the show about 3 PM I would think this year would be along the same lines.


Any Questions ? Feel free to ask here, PM me, or Text - Jim (847) 409-5477
I will provide PayPal info for anyone requesting a Vendor Spot


Any complaints ?? Stay Home !


Trophies will be given for the following categories:

1970-79 20 inch 1st & 2nd place.

1980-89 20 inch 1st & 2nd place.

Excellent!  Unfortunately, I'll be out of town.  You didn't post the date, which should be Saturday, June 18, correct?

Actually, I might be able to make it.  Depends on whether or not I'm worn out from attending a 5 day baseball tournament in OH.
