15 DAYS!

Our show is less than a month away and we are in major planning mode.  Things have been rather slow with registrations this year so I would like to encourage everyone to get those entries in.  You may go on line or send them in the mail to me.  Pre-registration is $15.00 and it is $20.00 the day of the show.

There seems to be a little bit of confusion on the date of the show.  Our show is on June 21st, not on Father’s day weekend.  I know some of you may have gotten a flyer to the Hot Rod show in Rantoul which accidentally said that you may attend their show after attending the MDA Benefit Show.  Our shows are not on the same weekend this year. (thank you Hot Rod and Hooligans for the mention of our show)  So now you will not need to decide which show to attend if you only wanted to do one show.  Please join us on June 21st at Hooters in Champaign!

We are still needing sponsors for many of the classes.  The more sponsors we get the more we are able to donate to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  The MDA is very close to a cure for several of the different types of MD.  The grants that are needed to continue this research comes from donations made by events such as ours.  As always we also would like to be able to help send as many children as possible to summer camp.  It costs over $800.00 per camper and this cost is covered by the MDA, not the families.  You all know that we have some really nice items for the raffle drawings; but that also is slow in coming this year.  We are going to have the silent auction again this year.  If you, or someone you know, have something that can be donated for the raffle or the auction please feel free to contact us. (Or just bring it the day of the show).

We would like to be able to enter the day of the show in the “black” again so that every registration, raffle ticket, 50/50 ticket and silent auction item sold is pure profit. (ALL PROFIT IS DONATED) With that being said, give that extra flyer to your friends, tell your car clubs or just stop by and have lunch at Hooters.  Hooters will once again be donating a percentage of the sales from that day to the show.  So call your friends and meet up for lunch!

This show would not be the success that it has become without the support of the community and our participants.  We look forward to see you all again on June 21st!  Registration is from 9:00am until noon the day of the show.
