From the flyer and web site:

We’re going to try something new this year. We usually have about 31 classes for everyone to enter in and we give out a 1st and 2nd place plaque in each class… IF we have people entered in those classes. Without fail, we end up with some classes having only one participant, or worse, no one at all. We’ve also seen people that didn’t want to put their cars into the show because they felt like there were at least two cars better than theres and therefore they wouldn’t have a chance of winning anything. What this means is that we often have plaques that go un-awarded. Our club works very hard to pull in sponsorship dollars to put on our show and we watch every penny so that we can put on the best show and still have the most left over to donate to our charity. These plaques that are not given out are essentially wasted money. So this year, we’ve decided to move to a top 30 award structure. We will still have a panel of judges looking over each car, but now everyone has a better chance of winning because we will select the top 30 Beetles, Buses, Ghias, Buggies, Rails, and trikes. Don’t think for one moment that because you have a daily driver, a rat rod, or a hood ride that you can’t win. Our judges will still take into account the class each car is registered in when assigning points.

The registration fee will still be $20, but we will also have a “Display-Only” entry fee that’s just $10. With Display-Only, all of your entry fee goes towards Crisis Services of North Alabama, you get a dash plaque, and you can still participate in contests and raffles. Registration ends at noon the day of the event. Pre-registration is before July 10th for only $15.

And there will still be all the things you love like the engine blow, door prizes, creeper races, and a kids zone.

As in years past, proceeds benefit Crisis Services of North Alabame (www.csna.org):

Time to start getting your VW ready for Bug'n,
as we're only ten days out. Remember, this year we're
going to a "Top 30" format; we feel this will give a more
eclectic mix of winners, and solves the unused award
problem. There's also still time for vendors to sign up.
Hope to see you and your Volkswagen(s) on the 21st!

As always, watching the weather...Be reassured that we
went with a larger tent this year (30 X 45), as well as the
mighty DRASH tent (comes with it's own A/C!). The show must,
and will, go on; hope to see you there!

The weather should have been perfect for the show, especially with the Drash tent. How was it?
