i have been the last 3 years as well.. had a blast every time.. i would love to see some changes that would make it a little less confusing... the first year i was there was when woody itson was the guest speaker.. that year.. on friday .. alot of folks were at the track ..chatting /trading/ selling/ gettin stuck in the mud!! haha! i met sooo many people and what a fun time
saturday was amazing!! all the bikes and people just had me in awe..
seems as if the last two years there was soo much emphasis on structure/placement/time tables
i guess i will just say the things i liked / disliked... remeber this is MY OPINION.. i am not the guy in charge.. im just a bystander.. i know alot of people may get their feelings hurt...
liked the maps to and from clocktower on last years stuff.. loved the last 2 friday nite chill sessions...missed all the breakfast stuff( hey i was on vacation) would have loved to meet the zeronine guy
listening to woody speak was just awesome! ron wilkerson was entertaining... hollywood mike.. i held him like a baby! stompin stu..class act!
the bikes! everything i had ever dreamed of seeing again .. it was all there!
the people i met.... that was one of the best parts of going! i still speak to , an a semi regular basis , alot of the people i met there..THE TABLE
now they even have a decent bar at the hotel...so who else is down for some tilted kilt action???
in 08 and 09 .. there were some super rad raffle prizes! all kinds of old school stuff and some newer suff..2010.. i know you guys spent alot of time tryin to get people to donate ... but i guess the raffle prizes hit a peak and it ended up on the downward slope.. i mean this is "vintage bmx" sponsored show.. not much vintage bmx as compared to prior years
what did i dislike??
the first year i went in 08 i had no idea how to get to the track from hotel and got lost several times..
no real gameplan as to where and when stuff was (08&09)
every year some sort of confusion w bike show competition
too many GT's! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif
suggestions?.. have the banquet part at the tilted kilt...eveyone pays for their own food or work something out with the restaurant...do away with the raffle and make the bike show super simple...someones feelings will get hurt(freestyle brake pads on a race bike=eliminated) do away with half the rules in it...
i hear the breakfast meetings are way cool...make em at like 9 or 10...so most of us can enjoy them
friday nites have been cool... guest speaker.. make em pay their own way..im sure you get a few rooms comped.. put em up! i saw alot of pros there that were there on their own dime im sure...let them speak.. or hell i just saw pics from that 40 yrs of bmx and voris dixon was on hand..
i guess i have said what i want to say... if anyone wants to reply or wanna know how i REALLY feel.. send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
my 2 cents
