This is a CAR SHOW folks - so come out to compete, display only, or just to "Gawk & Talk"! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) :creamsicle914: (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

We always get a bunch of really nice current, late model & classic Porsches to ogle! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

Orange County's OCR "White Gloves" Concours is coming to Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley, OC, CA just a bit north of the 405 off at Edinger east to & right at Brookhurst coming from the north, & off at Brookhurst north coming from the south - & NO, nobody actually wears white gloves, it's just a name!

Registration:
Event registration is available online at the link below, but I'm not sure if they'll be doing on-site registration for either judged &/or display only cars.

Concours Entrants - Divisions & Classes:
Awards are given for the best cars in each Division, as well as for each Model(s) within the Classes of each Division, usually with 1st & 2nd if enough cars entered in each Class - & for those competing for year end awards, this & the other Regions' CdE events count points towards Zone 8 overall year end awards for same.

For 2016, Z8 has now expanded the easiest Wash & Shine Division (Interior & Exterior judged - 2 areas) to have a separate Class for our 914s - as do/did the other Street & Preservation (75% original ext. & int.) Divisions, which adds Storage & Engine judged (4 areas); & for Full Concours, which adds undercarriage front & rear (technically with & without engine - 6 areas) to the prior Divisions.

Wash & Shine is the easiest to prep for, with only Exterior & Interior - so it's most used by those new to Concours & those who want to try it out, for those who DD their cars, & even by experienced CWs with limited time to prep their cars.

So do try it out if you're at all interested in Concoursing your 914.

Note that Originality is NOT judged in Zone 8 - so don't worry about those personal goodies, options & accessories that you've added! We're only judging on cleaning, detailing & preparation of your car, but you'll want to remove items like your cool Coco Mats, coffee cup holders, & other easily removable non-original stuff to aid the judging.

Also note that the new 2016 rule says you need to have your tool kits out of the car & ready for judging at 5 minutes before judging starts - i.e.: when "Light Dusting Only" &/or "5 minutes until Judging Start" is announced.

The Storage Judges in each Division will let contestants know whether they'll judge spare tires, etc. - usually based on whether all entered cars have them relatively accessible. Other variations may also come up for Storage (both trunks in 914s + Boxster/Cayman), & Interior (e.g.: if a 356 Speedster is entered, then it has no glovebox to judge, & we'd usually skip it for all other cars).

If in question - ask a judge!

See the link down below for more guidance on Concoursing.


Display Only:
This is not judged, but display only, & last year we had a dozen or more 914s show up for display alone! So bring out your beauty to show off, even if you're not interested in being judged for potential "Hardware."

It would be nice to have the 914s grouped together in display, if at all possible - so hopefully some of the early arrivals can help the later comers get their 914s into the same general vicinity, & keep it up during the day .... as a "NARPy show of force" if you will! :D


Box Lunches:
These are usually included for judged entrants, since they're usually there from 7 am or earlier (offsite) for prepping, through the afternoon for judging & awards.

Lunch has been optional for Display folks, since some come & go at various times, &/or don't want the Corner Bakery or whatever box lunches. So AFAIK you can register for Display with or without a lunch again this year.

BTW - these are usually enough food to share with a spouse/SO/GF/BF if you're not super hungry, so my wife & I usually share - rather than buying a 2nd - but additional lunches can be ordered in advance. There are also eateries along Brookhurst near the venue.


Vendors/Sponsors:
We always have a few sponsoring vendors with pop-ups & displays at the show, so do cruise by & at least look at their stuff & the P-dealer's new Porsches - in addition to the judged & display car gawking.


Help for Concours Contestants:
Zone 8 has a set of excellent articles, slide shows & "How To's" for Concours entrants at the link below, which are actually often used by other PCA Zones & Regions around the country. So if you're planning to compete, or just curious about how it all works, or just want tips on how to prepare & detail your 914 & other cars - take a look at the items linked on the Z8 Concours webpage at the link below....

http://www.zone8.org/events/format/concours.php


Other Parking for Visitors:
There will be ample parking for those not entered or in display at the venue, which the Concours Committee will have marked & can direct you to it, or you can just snag some on-street parking around Mile Square Park. So feel free to come over in any type of car to look & visit with folks.


Note on the Venue Change from Dana Point:
The City of Dana Point has had some water limitations due to the drought & the State enforced water limitations, so they've cancelled all of the various car shows & concours events at our usual venue by the Marriott Resort down there (at Green Lantern Park). We don't know if we'll be able to return to Dana Point in the future at this time.


So come on out & show off your 914s &/or other P-cars! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) :first:


I will be there as one of the judges, so do come seek me out - since I tend to be running around helping out, or with a team during judging. I'll try to wear something 914-ish all day, or ask someone with the judges for me.

And do feel free to follow any of the judging teams around to see what they do, if you're not otherwise engaged.

Also, feel free to post your pix in the similar topic for the show at the Garage Forum, so more folks will see them! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/type.gif)
