Myself and a few people whom i respect their opinions is much more gratifying than a plaque. All the plaques i have sit in a drawer collecting dust.

      There is no winning with this stuff.....people whine about the cost to enter a show (20$).
      If you want proper judging the entry would have to be (50$). Then judges could be paid to spend their whole day going over every piece of junk car with a fine toothed comb.Everyone would have a fair chance. I have been a judge at many events. Its not easy to go around and review every car.Lets face it 95% of them are not a show car anyways. It takes a long time to go through all the cars and give a respectable look at them. You think thats fun to do when you are there as a volunteer?
      Anyone can do as they wish....but as for me i go to see friends and admire a small number of cars worth looking at
      Deffinately agree, most cars are no where close to "show cars" that show up, I go to dustoff with the mindset that this is a big get together and get my gratification from someone I have never met just checking out what I have done and saying, hey that's pretty cool I like your car, some cars are distasteful to the VW crowd and we all know what cars they were haha, but who cares about "winning Dustoff"? Everyone I know that has been around the VW scene for a long time does not care if they win ****. Dustoff is a good time every year and is put together well, thanks to all who put this event together...

      This year was my second DustOff, and I was again impressed with the general atmosphere and organization of the show. Maybe it's because I'm used to CT shows, but it seems like the people at DustOff are just nicer people than the people I see at other VAG shows. The entrance/spectating fees are dirt cheap, the venue is beyond cool, and the whole thing just feels like a giant barbecue.
      I will not be missing this show next year, it's just too good to pass up. Sure, the pink Jetta was of questionable taste IMO, but the judges chose it for a reason. Nothing on that car was hacked at ALL. it really was a nice car despite some color/style choices.

      DustOff is all about having a good time; too bad there are some people who are just incapable of doing so.

      Just as a quick FYI on the cost of this show. The track alone costs $4,000. Start there and figure in all of the other expenses to go along with that. See where the money goes and realize that we do alot with a limited budget. We are working on some improvements for next year already and have a few pretty good concepts.

      We are all part of this community and have a pretty good grasp on what's needed/wanted and will continue to strive to be the best show in New England. Please understand that this show is not done for financial gain like some of the larger shows and is still run by a couple enthusiasts in their spare time. Should put things in a different light for some.

      i thought about doing it this year....but with the rain i wouldn't be able to give enough time and attention to each car critiquing their nicely executed modifications

      can i get that rain part in writing?

As a member of volkshore a club that the car is a part of congrats jazmin for putting work into that car and winning. And lastly thank you to the og's for standing up in this thread, I know that car is not your taste but you can still recognize what it takes to get to that point. New England scene needs a serious reality check it seems everyone is forgetting why they got into dubs. This sure as fahk isn't why I go to meets, shows, and put blood sweat an tears into my car.


      I've been to every Dustoff from the beginning, and with the exception of last year, volunteered at every one since 08. Call me a curmudgeon, but the scene is going downhill more and more each year. From people complaining that their bag setup and expensive wheels didn't win them a $50 plaque, to arguing about my "emm kay four" not being a real GLI because they didn't come in Reflex Silver . And I'm no better by coming on here and making my own complaint about it, but F it.

      Rain and whining aside, I had a damn good time, and that's all I expected out of it, and why I'll be back next year.

      Seems to me that the judging was done very well. That car was wasnt half assed and it was the only car that even stood out enough for me to remember after walking the track.

      i just get upset that the same car can win every year... granted if the owner changes the car around and makes it different, thats fine. but when a car is the same year after year and wins, i dont think thats right. the pink jetta is a complete show car and personally not a fan, but its not my car, and the owner clearly built it to suit them so good for them, but they shouldnt win time after time with the SAME thing. if they change the car up then fair game.

If you want to complain about not winning with your daily when your competing again actually show cars maybe next time you shouldn't enter
      Well put
      I saw a few other cars that I would have rather seen place. I dont like anything about that car, but looking it over there is clearly a lot of time and effort in it.

      its no one's fault but yours that the same car wins every year, dont blame the judges or the owner of the car. step up your game and knock them off the top.

      Lack of hood is good for dummy points. Especially in the rain. And when cruising around Seekonk.

      I think it was a great time regardless of rain! If all people wanted was a trophy save your entrance fee, stay home and order a custom 10' tall trophy and brag about that.

      The people always bitching is why I stopped showing my mkiv and parted it. I took a few years off from shows and come back to the same ****!

      I'm not mad I didn't win mkv class, I'm happy the car that won I put a lot of time into! Congrats Grundle!

      I had more fun seeing old friends and checking out all the cars I've
      Missed over the years.

      Osd crew thanks for letting me get involved!! And thanks to Sony electronics for hooking me up with giveaways! Kyle

      my god its the same isht every year

      you dont like the judging volunteer to do it

      you dont like who wins step you game up

      jesus tap dancing christ stfu if you let a $50 plaque define why you go to shows you should just drive your car right into a tree

      Tom and everyone else involved you guys do an amazing job

      Thank you very much. Few realize what it takes. Some do.

      Improvements will be made every year as we see issues and deal with them. And judging is always THE hardest issue to fix.
