You prompted me to get an update on the event. I reviewed the registration form and was a little surprised and disappointed to see what is required: $75 just to enter; $45 or $25 to be judged, AND you have to be a member of the NIA to be judged; lots of out-of-pocket money for food/banquet events. Don't get me wrong...I'm excited about the July get-together (including the 50th year for the '68's)! And I live in the Dayton area, so I won't have the additional burden of hotel fees; and have less travel with my ride.
I hope I don't sound 'cheap', but I've never come close to having this kind of "down payment" for a car show event. I am trying to find out some details from the Marriott people about the 'layout' for our cars...mostly to know what kind of security we will have overnight since this is a 6-day convention.
Thanks for 'hearing me out'. I'm only complaining a little. Any feedback will be accepted and learned from. Would like to hear from all who have been at previous NIA events.
