In a previous post Paladin created a post looking for the Best and Worst looking buses of 2008. I have a great extension to that idea, I think.

I will make space on my website for the first ever "NO GO BUS RALLY" Here's the way it will work; You submit pictures to me that I will post on my website. If it doesn't get out of hand I will try to keep the buses in categories. (The more pictures that you submit, the better the attention you will get on the site.)

Maybe we can talk MAK or some other vendor to provide a prize for the "BEST OF THE NO SHOW".

Maybe Nick, Phil, Dallas and I could be the final judges.

Under each picture I will put a "Vote For Me" button, each viewer will have to push a "Submit" button and I will get the score. I will keep track, and keep the Board Moderators informed of the progress of the scores.

We could keep this going until the summer and then proclaim the winner. We could have a Best Of Class and then Best of Show, plus a Worst of Show.


I think it would be a fun way to show off your buses and your features. I have plenty of space and there would  "NO CHARGE" of course.  We might offer some incentives and trinkets like Tee Shirts and Dash Plaques that would be for sale.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the support Nick. I think the first thing we need is a couple of prizes or at least a promise of a prize. Can you handle that, or find someone that will?

Dave,
   I like your idea. As for prizes, I will offer a Bussin' 2008 rally fee to the winning bus. We will make it a feature coach at the rally.  Jack

PS: Paula & I will not be able to go to the rally at Palmdale next weekend. I have to repair a tag axle air bag support beam on our bus. Eagles are not the only buses with rust issues!

Thanks Jack, that's a great prize. I was thinking maybe we could get Alan to make the Tee Shirts showing the Best of on the front and the Worst of on the back? Plus put all or any of the sponsors on the sleeve (s).

We will miss you this week end.

Nooooooooo.... that's not how it works. No self proclaimed winners, sorry.

I will create the pages in a few days and I will announce the registration date right here on this board. There will be an address for you to link to. There you will be able to view and submit your photos. There will be a score and submit button the winners will be decided early summer.

Dave -

Me thinks we need clarification of the "No Go" portion of this proposed rally.

Does "No Go" mean that physically nobody is going anywhere, just submitting pics online?

Or does "No Go" mean that our coach is physically incapable of moving under it's own power at this time, and appropriate pics are to be submitted for judging?

Minor details. . .
