Motherlode Cruise - Follow Up/Feedback
Made $3139. Thanked Walt Hoeser for all of his work in putting the show together. In turn, Walt thanked
all those who helped him.
Suggestions/input for next year:
      Porta potties needed.
      28 entrants the day of the show. Need a separate place for day-of registrations from those who
         have pre-registered.
      Judges. Need to be on time.
      50 modified was the hardest to judge.
      Took too long to set up on Main Street.
      108 cars. 1 refund. Pat sent a refund letter and covered their registration for next year.
      The missing plaques were sent by Pat, along with a letter that stated that their registration was
         paid for next year.
      Need to have cut-off date for pre-registration not so close to the actual date of the show.
      Limit the numbers of parking places. Main Street and El Dorado parking lot only? Can handle
         120-125 cars.
      Scott Morrison said that, other than the Dandelion Days crowds, it was one of the biggest crowds
         they’ve had on Main Street in years.
      Good to have the registration in the building.
      Connie didn’t have the information for the cars. Need to write down the info on the winning cars
         when doing the judging next year.
      Couldn’t hear the music on the other end of Main Street. Two bands next year? Or locate the
         band somewhere in the middle.
      Insurance is available through the City for our events.
      Walt said we needed more people to sell raffle tickets. Need more volunteers in general.
      Feedback from group in SF and Bay Area was positive. They all had a great time, the SF group is
         coming up to visit because they loved the area so well.
      Need to recognize the car that won. Blue ribbon? Flag? Dot on windshield? (something reusable
         for each year).
      Next year have coffee and sell pastries in the morning.
