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
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
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.
NEW BUSINESS: Vision and focus of the JBCA
