Sounds like a main issue you have is with the judging part. I cannot say too much about the judging category as I have never had my car judged...it is not worthy. One of your issues is the score sheet delay...I would agree with that....should be more timely as you say and not 6 months. My theory is that the NIA is pretty small organization and there isn't enough people willing to be on the judging team. We are lucky to have one team of experts to do it. And, I think Ron Mroz and co do a good job of it. They know their stuff. (More NIA mem with judged cars to chime in here).
My issue is the Poeple's Choice Show. Convention 2017... I didn't sign up for it, but I assumed we could all park our cars together by model year regardless. Now I have to pay $25 just to park with the other '67s....all because people can't vote only for example yellow card cars on the windshield.
The cost of everything is an issue for me. Way too much. Maybe on show day we could just show up for the show and not pay anything. Just to pay money to park my car for a day in a parking lot seems wrong to me. The judging show..ok...you are paying people to judge your car.
The NIA convention overall are great with good people...just a couple issues on my part.
