Any feed back on cash award? do you like the idea? The committee wanted to do something other than a trophy, old school bike collectors work hard and spend a lot of money to bring these bikes back to life so why not award cash !!

just be 1000% ready for a ton of backlash from those who dont win and feel they deserve to win.

Every bike I build deserves to win every show........not really LOL ! I think a lot of good points have been brought up. I think too a cash prize would cause a lot of drama with some people. To me, shows are just to show off what you’ve done, and if ya win, that’s just a plus. I’m bringing as many as I can fit in my truck, and if nothing wins, I’m still gonna have a good time ! Just my $.02....

Lindsay75.. You NAILED IT!! you have the right attitude, We are trying to breakout offer something different, travel expense, cash to buy old school parts or what ever.. judging will never be perfect in someones mind, We, like you just want to have some fun, great conversation and talk to Stu, Thanks for your comment

I think money is a good thing. If you give out money, trophies or a candy bar some immature "adult" will get butt hurt! Most of us do this for fun, & the comradery, at least the winner will get some gas money!

I agree, doesn’t matter if you give $10,000 to winners or a ten cent blue ribbon douchebags that ruin the fun hobby will still complain. The event will be fun regardless of the negative crybabies, I am looking forward to attend.

Re: $1000 SHOW PURSE !! with Stu Thomsen in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

I haven't done a BMX show but I've put on a few cars hows.  Not huge ones, but 100 cars or so. Here is my take on it, and sounds like you are on the same track.

1. You got in for free- that right there takes away your right to complain about anything.
2. You got fed for a donation of your own free will.....again.
3. There was a prize or ten or whatever, judged however...you didn't win....better luck next time  Read #1.

What I found through doing car shows is that if you offer some big $$ prize it may draw people, but it may not be the people you want there anyway...
Regular dudes into cars will show up for the sake of something to to do, eat BS, whatever. Dudes into trophy's (that's fine) but thte shows I did were not for them.

(you have "Vendors" misspelled on your flyer btw)


I know it's different for BMX as it needs  reach out further to get attendance.  It's nerve-racking I know - Good luck !

Thank you for your insight on your previous show experience, We are all in, Flying in Stu, giving away $1000, renting a Old School Coliseum in the heart of the city.. plus giving vendor's a new territory to make a sale or a collector to find something they have been searching for.. Thanks and spread the word

Marked. I will try and go.
I think cash prizes will attract more to the event.
Don't sweat the cry babies. There is a reason they are cry babies.
