BEST RACE 70'S

BEST FREESTYLE OVERALL -OPEN
BEST CRUSIER -OPEN
BEST STANDARD ----- SINCE ITS AT THE HOME OF STANDARD
BEST OF SHOW
BEST SURVIVOR
BEST RETRO
BEST CUSTOM

B.O.B CLASS-------- baller on a budget CLASS.... $500-UNDER BIKES. People do have cool mongoose, GT's , huffys, exc but dont have a chance against a 5K hutch!!! This class will be the most creative.


LESS CLASSES MEANS A BETTER BATTLE TO SHOW WHAT YOUR BIKE IS MADE OF!!!!!

So instead of the usual plastic throphys, This is what we are going to do. Gary Schlatholt@
www.LaserSportz.com is going to custom make these number plates for our fest. We are going to make them just like the real number plates so when you win, you can hang them on your bike and display them. It will have the fest name, class and the #1 for the winner.. This sure beats the usual throphy and its something cool and unique I think...

WELL:

Sounds like this is going to be a great show and a day of fun. I have alot of people emailing me from all over the country on the bike show and all the other stuff.. I have some interested companies who are looking to attend. I got the throphys being made now for the bike show. (everyone bring your own bike stand).

I have sent out hundreds of letters and emails to various companies for the prize and raffle tables. I am still looking at having event shirts done asap and so on..

I think this will be a fun show for all of us, and could be a great first you. so if you plan to attend, post on here so we can get a idea on whats coming whith who.....


Any questions please ask, i dont want to forget a single thing..

thanks
