Guys, in an attempt to add a little more fun to the shows and events that EOC attend throughout the year, we are now doing our own inter-club show and shine awards.

This is not relevant for regional meets, and only applies to club stands booked at shows and events.

The premise is that the event organiser will arrange to have 3 trophies made up for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize. Then on the day, someone unbias will judge the cars on the stand and award the trophies to the respective owners.

It's just a bit of fun, and will hopefully just give a little something back to those who attend. Judging will not be based on "who's spent the most money" or "who's got the most mods". It's just down to who's gone the extra mile to make sure their car is clean and tidy.

So if you are on the list for a show this year and you want to be in with a chance of getting a little trophy, hoover and wash your car before you come along ;)

Hoping this is taken as a bit of fun and helps encourage people to get involved in the show spirit :)

Dose every one attending get a vote?
I have seen this done at small classic car shows. It’s a system that works as in the classic car world judges local shows can sometimes be biased to the cars / manufacturers the like. (Even to the point of a class winning car having a damaged wing and headlight)

Sounds like a good idea

means its democratic....

Maybe we need to have system for people to opt in or out of it too?

I know some people don't like that sort of thing...

It's good for those that are into it for showing their car (I'm definitely not one of them) as long as it's a bit of fun. Still haven't hoovered my jalopy yet let alone washed it and polishing hahahaha
