      I am puzzled by this. I am looking into it with the assumption that we screwed up (we the judges)

      i had fun, it was kinda of funny seeing how many people loved my car, but it was the anti-show car. It was dirty as heck, scratches, dents, etc all over the car. However the list of mods on the sheet did not correspond to what i had done to the car, it's a highly modified car but apparently "winch, offroad tires, offroad suspension, etc" isn't on the common mods list lol.

      The judge was kind (i say judge because the 2nd one skipped my car and went to the clean scirocco next to me), he looked it over, asked me to describe the car in 30 seconds, then went to join the 2nd judge with the scirocco.

      I was slightly dissappointed i came in last place out of all the cars despite everyone loving it lol.

      Oh well, it's my first car show i ever went to, i wasn't doing it to win a trophy, i was doing it to show off all the work i put into making a barn find audi coupe quattro into a offroad warrior.

      Judges are REQUIRED to remove themselves from judging cars where they know the owner; This can cost them their pay and they won't be invited back, period.

      So, it was Mark 6 Mod 1. That can be 1 of 3 classes: 7, 8 or 43.

      Class 7 and 8 were both won by girls. One is Jetta, one is Golf. Please let me know which one.

      This is 100% true. If the judge did not judge her class, that is completely OK.

      I've only had 1 person ask me to do them a "favor" for a friend, and that friend thought that the "fix" was in and didn't bother to clean his car. He got a 58, and came in 7th of 10 cars.

      No one has asked me to do this at waterfest since 2003. I think that speaks for itself

      We were in class 7 together. I stood next to her before the awards were given out and she was talking to a younger kid (younger sibling?) and before the awards began she said "I need to know which side to go to, to get my award." Also looking back at years prior her judging scores took a major boost this year compared to the past years, from high 60s/mid 70s to the 90s now. Sure it's certainly possible that she brought it all together nicely over the past year. But comparing the scores of all thr class winners, there were only 2/3 cars with a higher overall score then hers. Coupling that with the comment she made, it just seems a bit off to me.

      I got to meet a bunch of people in my class and traded some war stories about our cars and had a great time sharing a canopy tent (what a life saver), that it just really not cool to see all these guy and gals slighted over someone who receives an unfair advantage. I was more upset that the guy parked next to me didn't win after hearing his and his cars back story then myself.

      Anywho, I would really be interested in learning what exactly I could improve upon, from my score standpoint. Is there anyway to see/know what the scores were in the breakdown by category? Example: exterior, interior, etc.

      Let's do some math together.
      If you are expecting someone to spend 15 to 20 minutes looking at your car and hearing your story, that is 3 cars per hour. You want the judging to start no earlier than 10, and you want awards by 4. With a second check on the math, late arrivals, and other impediments, that means each 2 person team can do 15 cars total per show. Which means we would need 40 teams of two working non-stop, assuming no one is parked wrong or wants to be re-judged. That is 80 people minimum.

      Last year we only had 16 people TOTAL show up to judge. So yeah, we have to keep it moving. And that is why we were literally delivering class results AFTER the awards presentation had already begun.

      TL;DR Not enough people show up to judge so we have to go faster than we want to. And then spend time afterwards defending why we did what we did.

      Waterfest hasn't happened yet and you're already complaining.

      Renting the racetrack and the grounds isn't cheap. So people and vendors need to fork over money.
