Landisville, PA – Earlier this spring we were contacted by Jason who puts on the annual Cops & Rodders car show in Lancaster County. He had learned about us from a good friend from our earlier “OG” car community days… Thanks Sajy! In its 5th year, Jason wanted to step things up and set the standard for other local events. So naturally he wanted to get his event on board with our eJudged iOS app. The Cops & Rodders event benefits the Power Packs Project, an organization that provides long-term solutions to end childhood hunger. Since the event was only a short drive for us, Jason invited us to come hang out for the day -and we decided to show our support in person, which gave the judges an opportunity to take advantage of our Ford Transit Connect Mobile Command Center and HotSpot on wheels. We’ve gotta say we’re glad we took the time to come and be a part of the fun! A couple hundred cool cars turned up, despite a little rain in the morning, the food was good, and the company was good as well – as there were plenty of area Police officers in attendance with their cars on display as well. Neat concept for a show, and we can’t wait to return again next year!
Aberdeen, MD - This past Sunday we took a nice little Sunday cruise down to Cal Ripken's Stadium, where Tuner Evolution and Los Goonies hosted The Panda Junction. We attended last year's meet, and we were overwhelmed with the growth of this event in just it's 2nd year of existence. There were a lot of cars in attendance. And to be honest, there were a lot of outstanding cars in attendance. We were thankful that Jay had asked us to bring our Transit Connect Mobile Command Center down for the event, and it gave us another opportunity to toss together a little voting competition.
At the end of the day, it was Quan Smalls that was the top vote getter and took home bragging rights of the "Interstate Sensation" competition. But much like the week prior at Fresh Meet, we really enjoy seeing dedicated enthusiasts be rewarded by their peers. Congrats to Quan and his crew for getting out there week after week.
Georgetown, TX – We were excited when the Georgetown Area Car Club reached out to us about using our app at their show in Texas. We can’t wait to see our app in use all over the country, and more. The event was a car show and charity benefit, and it seems to us that the turn out was huge. They had a little bit of everything – from antique to modern on display and in competition… but some of the street rods and cool old school builds certainly stole the show. We are looking forward to working with this event again.
Woodstown, NJ - Fresh Meet Events continue to impress with huge turnouts at their events. We just returned from their annual Spring Bash meet, and it was packed, as usual. We love to attend this event and show support for the Fresh Meet Fam because they're good guys with a vision - and they create a fun environment at all of their events.
This year, we were honored to be asked to put together our own little display area. We reached out to our partners-in-crime at LowLifeStyle.com and SqueakyClean and took over an entire hangar. It also seemed like a great time to release a new aspect to eJudged. We generally don't attend a ton of meets because we're so busy travelling and maintaining judged competition style car shows. But we love the relaxed, good time atmosphere of the meet style events. Turns out great minds think alike as we quickly collaborated with Rey and Mike from Fresh Meet to come up with the Freshest Of The Fresh award. 25 of the top cars from the event were chosen - and then anyone who attended the event could swing by our booth and cast their iPad vote for their favorite vehicle.
Hampton, VA - Spring has finally sprung and we shifted straight into high gear, kicking off our 2015 "Powered by eJudged" schedule with a roadtrip to Virginia for some Southern hospitality and the VA Hot Rod & Custom Car Show. The event is also the first stop of Live-Wire-Media's event series. Brad from Live Wire is an old friend, but new partner of ours. We couldn't be more excited to combine forces.
The Hampton Roads Convention Center was filled with high quality hot rod builds, restored and preserved rare classics, and a ton of horsepower. At the end of a great weekend, meeting lots of great folks and seeing some amazing vehicles, well over 100 people went home with some pretty sweet awards. We're proud to say that we got to be a part of it!
