We are getting ready for our 5th Annual Show and we are looking at reasons the attendance was not good last year..... Prevouse years were OK...but not a great turn out.....

Would a show in a church parking lot stop you from going to the show???

What draws you to shows, does location mean that much????

Our 5th Annual show is going to be off the hook, live bands, good food, cool vendors,
$500 best of show for Car, Motorcycle and Bicycle + 5' Trophy.
1st place trophies in other catagories....
Best of show is peoples choice.... the more people that vote for your ride the better the chance to win.....

Last year was about the same but only $100 best of show.

So What Draws to a show.......


Our show is going to be Oct 15 in Pomona, we want to have it at a chuch parking lot so that vendors can sell food. If we have it in a public area, we have to get special permits to sell food.....

So I turn to LIL brother and sister to help me decide.

A. Church parking lot
B. Public area, like a local park

Thanks
Alex

Alex I would hope that would not have any bearing on who shows up to a car show or not. Look at it this way I would have a feeling there would be less problems having it in a church parking lot than in just a parking lot in a high school or shopping center don't you. Just my feelings :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
GODS LOOKING OVER YOU BRO

We have trophies for all major catagories, we really never did any type of hopping contest, I guess because we really don't know what goes into it. If we had some schooling on hopping I would be open to it.......

exactly, a hop with a good payout will bring hoppers which in turn brings more people.

It depends what type of crowd you are tying to attract. I was involved doing a show at a church parking lot and it was ok turn out with alot of church folks. Then the following year we did the 2nd show at a park because of lack of parking space and it was a better turn out with less church folks. I personaly would't have a problem attending a show at a church parking lot. Then again I try to attend church on a regular basis. Either way if it honors God it's good. :thumbsup:
