Car Show Entry Forms:
Thos entering their VW in the car show need to complete their entry form at the entry gate. You can save a lot of time by printing it off and filling it in at home. Just bring it along on the day.
Make sure you know which category your VW should be entered in - whether air- or water-cooled, what specific model yours is, and (if required), whether it is STANDARD or MODIFIED. Does your VW look and run as it did when it left the factory? Then it's Standard. If you've hotted it up, customised or changed it, then it's Modified. You can only enter ONE CATEGORY.
All car show entries are automatically entered into People's Choice category.
If your VW is absolutely perfect, you can choose to enter the Concours category. The Concours category is judged by a panel of VW experts, It's open to immaculate stock VWs, older than 10 years old, only (no custom or modified cars).
All other categories are peer-judged. All car show entrants receive a ballot sheet when they enter, and they can choose which ever cars they think are best, or their favourites. You can choose up to 10 air-cooled, and 10 water-cooled cars. The computer will tally up all the votes. Don't worry about the categories - the computer will sort them out. Thus, car-show entrants get to choose up to 20 cars of their choice.
When you register your VW at the entry gate (with the form filled out), you will also receive an entry number sticker, which goes on your windscreen. You will be directed to drive forward for a photograph, which will be used iif you win a trophy! After this, move directly to the designated parking area as directed by the Cllub officials in yellow vests. Areas are set aside for particular models - Beetles together, Kombis together, Golfs together, etc. Lock you car if you aren't staying with it.
General entry people receive a 'people's choice' voting form, which allows them to choose ONE favourite vehicle. These are tallied up with the peer judging sheets by computer to calculate the overall winners of each category.
Entries to all categories close at 10:30 am sharp. Peer judging forms must be returned to the Club VW stand no later than 12:30 pm. The forms go in the big blue box.
You enter Fairfield Showgrounds off Smithfield Rd, Prairiewood. It's a good idea to get there early, well before the entry gates open at 7:30.
Car show entrants and swappers should follow the entry road around the back, clockwise around the ground to the car show entry gate at the back. General entry cars park in the outdoor carpark and enter through the south-western gate.
Car show entries close at 10:30 am.
NO general parking inside the showground unless you are entering the show n shine.
