    Default Attn: All Bpg Car Show Participants!!

    This post is to inform all Car Show Participants of the mandatory rule regarding a fire extinguisher in the car. The rules state:

    4. All vehicles to be judged must have a UL approved fire extinguisher in an easily accessible place in the vehicle.

    This is not an option. You must have an UL approved fire extinguisher in your car in order to participate in the Car Show portion of the BPG Nationals. WE WILL BE CHECKING FOR FIRE EXTINGUISHERS! If you do not have one now, go buy one (you really need one anyway, what with the 30 to 40 year old wiring and fuel systems we have...ever see a grown man cry as he watches his pride and joy go up in flames???).

    Forewarned is forearmed! Get that fire extinguisher today.

    Brad;

    Sorry, But I am new to showing.
    Question;

    I am wondering about location of the UL fire extinguisher.
    Should it only be in mounted in the interior? Or can I mount
    it in the trunk?
    I am thinking for easy access, Interior. Under the Front seat.
    And this shoud be mounted to the floor? I have a 1972 GS
    Conv with Bench/Armrest front seat.
    Are there better locations?
    Thanks for your help

    Brian, It is not mandatory that the extinguisher be "mounted" to a certain area of the vehicle, it can be in the back seat, or you could have it next to your chair and cleaning supplies behind the car. reason is that these cars are getting old and can have potential fires, we want everyone to enjoy the Show being safe at the same time, I have noticed over the last few years many car shows are asking participants to have an extinguisher on hand.
    Hope to see you in Salem.

    Brian,

    As Bruce explained, it is not necessary to mount the extinguisher anywhere...it could be located anywhere in or near the car. We're just asking that everybody bring one.

    Thanks!

    Sean,
    We updated the Judging rules for the 2007 Car Show, and developed 2 sets of judging rules. The one set was for the Concours Classes (400 points), and the other was for the Driven Classes (100 points).

    This arrangement worked well last year and everybody seemed to like it. I will "ttt" both threads to bring them to the top so everyone can look at them.

    My BOD position is one of the three positions slated to be rotated out this year, therefore it will be up to the new Show Director, and the members, to decide if the current arrangement is to be continued or altered.

    Another suggestion is to have the car show winners be able to run their cars down the track. I was asked this by a number of people and I mentioned to them that the track wouldn't let them do it. Hopefully next year we'll be able to let them.

    Carl,
    I don't think the racers like us doing that. I believe it affects the track prep, andthey want to keep it the best they can. This is understandable as that is why they come to the event.
