PostSubject: Rutland hotrod/custom show    Fri Oct 08 2010, 14:20

right, my work (sycomore harley davidson uppingham) put on a custom show for bikes every year, ... next year, they thinking of expanding and making it a rod and custom (hot vw too of course) show as well. in the planning stage at the minute but heres what being thought.
in the past uppingham has had classic car shows on which closes the market area, and main street for parking and show etc. this is what thyre thinking of but for cool stuff like ours of course Smile
local hotel/bar is going to be asked about a cheap rate for people wanting to stay overnight, and also about putting on music in their hall(i'd probably sleep in my van in a carpark!), hopefully a local band of some description, and lots of boooooze.(other drinking establishments are available too ) avin secure parking at sycomores and hotel carpark so no need to worry about leaving pride and joy out and about..
so itd be a saturday and sunday show, with party at night, not sure of much else yet, but a burnout competition (my idea) has been put forward and considered!!!
all set in a quaint little town.
i think its normally late february, so not much else on.
anybody think the may be interested? and what vehicle would you bring?...
ta.

small update,

its on the weekend of 5 and 6 march, or what ever that weekend is..

there are rooms to be booked to stay in at the falcon hotel, about 45 quid i think, sleep up to 4.

band booked to play , not sure who, but i been told theyre good..

Tim, would you be interested in a free trade plot? probably outside sycamore building,
maybe get some of your customers with cool motors in a roadhouse line up?

i know people at work gettin in touch with local hot rod / yank clubs..
it has a potential to be a good doo i think. although being the first ever its difficult and a bit worrying for them!

theres talk of cheap MOT vouchers for all rods etc that turn up. Wink

ill keep you posted..

well the custom show is this weekend coming, and to be honest, im not sure the planning is up to much! considering they want cars n stuff there, they dont appear to have any definate stuff to interest us, basically relying on me bringing some friends i think.
they did liked my idea of mot vouchers for rods n customs that turn up, but that idea was months ago, and theres been no mention since. to be honest, its a half arsed effort on their behalf, too many idea and not enough commitment or organisation to see it thru.
having said that, i will go up on saturday if its nice weather. if not i may go over in a normal car to see what custom bikes are there. you never know, it might actually be good!
i think saturday is the day if anyones interested in going. thats the main judging day for the bikes.

Seems like a good idea, It could work well if they could get it better organised for next year. Give em a kick up the butt Ed.
