    Update: List of volunteers thus far:

    (NAM)Smurfette26 + Husband - vote counting only
    (NAM)pm-belgium (Phil and Mike) - vote counting only? Depends on timing, I suppose.
    I have 4 volunteers from Sunshine MINIs (My home club), and I think they're all in for parking and vote counts if needed.
    I'd like to have 6 people to help park, as I have a certain plan in my head. Right next to the cobwebs.

    Hello all,

    OK, this post should about double my post count here on MA. But hopefully, most of you know me from many Dragons past anyhow. I just wanted to do a little promotion for the annual MOTD Car Show (sponsored by OutMotoring), and ask for some volunteers. I'd like to get a little help parking the entrants' cars, as we're going to try to park similar models together for easier comparison. I'd also like to find 1-2 people to help count the votes in a timely manner. (Unlike last year, when I tried to go it solo, then panicked & was rescued by Xiek and MiniSandPirate.)

    If I can find maybe 2 parking volunteers that can show up at the ball field by 12:30-1:00pm, that would be fabulous. If those folks want to stick around & count ballots, that'd be awesome, but I'm not going to be choosy since this is a volunteer request.

    As for the car show itself, we have expanded the number of categories. We did have to cut back from 3 to 2 trophies in the limited classes in order to keep things sane, but there will be more trophies awarded overall. All of the info is HERE on Snooter's MOTD web site, and the basic text of that page would look something like this if I cut & pasted it here...
