Title: Popular Ballot Car SHow for SAAC-45
Post by: Cobrask8 on December 18, 2019, 07:46:38 AM
Assembling the team, already starting to plan.

We used a new format last year at Pitt which we felt worked well. We'd like to try it again, small tweaks if needed. Invitation to all who plan on attending to comment. Please see the Popular Ballot Car Show topics in the SAAC-44 section for the specifics. Here's a link to the thread from last year which spells out the votiong, parking, and general details: http://www.saacforum.com/index.php?topic=4533.0

Of course, much to early to talk about where it will be inside the track, etc etc...

Looking forwards to seeing all of you there!

I thought it was a good idea. We really enjoyed walking around checking out the cars and getting to know the owners. Many were very appreciative when we dropped out tickets in their envelope. Good way to do the people's choice. Thanks

I enjoyed the car show and judging at last years convention.  I believe it went well.

Don't see a section on proper procedure for soliciting bribes.  Needs update. ::)

I usually bring a rental car.  I have no class.

Neither does the car.  So we match. 8)

My wife and I have already volunteered to help with the popular vote car show at Indy. The format is quite a bit different then the norm, but if you guys like it, we are willing to help with it.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for all the work you have done over the years Dan.  It's much appreciated.  I wasn't there last year.  However, I attend all sorts of local shows as both a spectator and entrant.  I've seen things that boggle the mind that owners do in an attempt to manipulate voting results so they can get a lousy trophy.  I've seen this at our own SAAC convention as well...people trading tickets with each other without even seeing the cars....Would anything prevent a trophy hunter from simply putting all 25 of his top 25 tickets into his own envelope?

Yes, the method used had a safety built in. Each entrant had his voting tickets numbered with that same number as his entry number. When counting, we eliminated all duplicate numbered tickets in any envelope by throwing out all duplicates. A little more work in preparing materials and organizing, but the payoff worked.

If I recall, we did not have much "stuffing" this year. And the results seemed to come out fairly well on their own.

How does a car earn a celebrity choice award?

Thanks Dan, that makes sense!

I have never been a fan of voting at car shows. I've seen it all. Dan's way it appears is one of the best/better ones I have seen. I have always used a "display only" if possible at shows. Don't need trophies. Don't have room for trophies-well I do up in my attic with the other ones collecting dust. The way I see it is my car is a winner to me. I RESTORED it myself(sans outer paint/body work but did assy and stripes) and I'm proud of how it turned out out of a 2 car garage and love driving it for the last 17 years since I finished it. I don't need affirmation from a trophy.  Gary

As long as the convention is a go, we'll be asking for help again in running the car show. Help with registration at the showfield, parking, and vote counting.

Always much more fun to be involved!

Volunteer, it helps make the convention run smoother and as that great attraction “Roadside America” says “Be Prepared to See More Than You Expect”
Volunteer and you get to meet everyone and get the “inside scoop” on what cars are there. Plus you get to meet the all the people
