Re: First State Nationals - July 8-10 2011 - Dover, Delaware

Why am I not surprised that during my search for more information on this joke of an event, that I found more evidence of this promoter ripping someone off? He did the same to us...you all seem very nice, so I hope you didn't waste time at this show.
I was part of a freelance photography crew that was with a magazine hired to be an advisor for the motorcycle portion of the show. But the guy wouldn't listen to the advice, didn't hardly advertise or push the motorcycles at all. Even on his website there was hardly mention of the motorcycles being in the show. My part was to take pictures of the cars, my partners are more into the motorcycles. We were told that we were going to be on the midway, in the infield of the track, that there was going to be 75 acres of stuff, we were supposed to have a 20x20 tent with electricity, supposed to be staying at the casino, ended up at a roach motel where his credit card was still being declined...none of his promises came through, and he expected us to work for free, hand over the copyrights to our photographs etc....and to top it off, he called our model a prostitute and told us we had to leave the 2nd day. The magazine could stay but we (the photographers) had to leave. The editor told him we were all leaving. Most of the vendors saw us leave and soon followed. They advertised in the magazine, plus they weren't making any money. Attendance was horrid. Oh, and the DJ they picked for the event, played soul/disco music a good part of the time! LOL! Not really car show type of music... :loser:
The promoter is a lying jerk, who promised too much apparently has something against motorcycles too, because he blames the motorcycles for all his problems. There were less than 5 there, on top of maybe 30 cars at the most. I wasted 6 1/2 hours driving time to be treated like dirt because I was working for a motorcycle magazine...
Anyway, like I said, I hope you guys didn't waste your time...it sucked

Yeah. They went as far to clone out my logo that was over it when I sent it to them.

I FINALLY got someone on the phone and apparently 'My Check is going out Monday'. However I've heard that 3-4 times. So until the money is in my bank account eff this show.
