ATTENTION - DIRECTION INFORMATION

There is construction in the area of E.H. Park so the park is at the end of a dead end street past Argosy Casino right now. Also, there are a couple of new bridges to get to Argosy's road which are probably not on your GPS so the only way you might know about them is to use the map here:

JUDGING CRITERIA

All vehicles will be judged by the following criteria:

DetailEngineGlass/Moldings/Rubber (except tires)Interior
Trunk areaUndercarriageJudges overal opinion of the carWheels/Tires

Each item listed above will be scored on a scale of 1 - 5. Any area that cannot be seen or is not accessible (i.e. trunk or hood closed or windows rolled up) will receive a score of 0. In addition to the mandatory 1 - 5 scoring, the judges may award up to 3 optional points for each criteria. This was devised specifically for the H2O classes to level the playing field between "garage queen show-only" or "fresh off the showroom floor stock" vehicles and daily-driven modified vehicles. The air-cooled classes will also adopted this same scoring method for their cars this year to help simplify the organization of the judging.

JUDGES

All judging is done on a volunteer basis, and someone will announce over the PA system when they're ready for judges to congregate at the main building to pick up scoring sheets. We encourage all show entrants and spectators to participate in the judging. Judging for each class is done with two people, and those two judges will confer with each other and agree upon the point value to award each car for each criteria. Those who have never judged before are paired up with someone who has experience. You can judge any class your car is not entered in. These guidelines were devised for the highest level of fairness.
