Q: How do I register for the judging?

A: Once you have paid and parked, head over and register your vehicle with Administration next to the main stage. Nominate your category and place the paperwork VISIBLY on your windscreen ready for the judging. (if the judges can’t see the judging sheet, they can’t judge!)

 

Q: Can I register for more than one judging category?

A: Yes, an additional $5.00 per category is required for every additional category selected. A paid stamp will qualify additional category nominations.

This keeps registrations targeted and eliminates careless ticks on every box and category.
