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

Recommend to make separate category 2000 and up like the Midwest and Rockford shows, otherwise as I read the flyer there's a catagory covering 1990 to 2018? That's not good for the mid school folks, or those modern era fans

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 !!

Cash awards are nice if there is a panel of judges. Not voted on by the buddy system. I could care less about winning at Bike shows, but seeing garbage Bikes win over legit class winners annoys me. Just because somebody brought the Brady bunch with them to vote on their bike.

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

Sounds like a great way to turn what’s supposed to be a fun hobby into something mean spirited, quick.
You get men and money involved and will lead to drama.
How would a fair judging/voting system be implemented? A panel of experts (who don't have any bikes entered?)
Otherwise you just have a bunch of friends show up and vote for your bike.
For example will someone be policing entries to ensure a "retro" doesn't get put into another category?
I also think the categories are not ideal. 90's to today as one category? 28 years worth of bikes? I do new school,
that is a world of difference over almost 3 decades... not worth bringing a bike 2 states over for that.

Thank you for your response, Cash award was something we thought would help with travel expense, trophy's are way less costly so we could reconsider and not give away $1000, hope you come

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

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....
