What does the show consist of and does $10 for a family of 4 get four meals or just one? Just confused about two different fees.

The show consists of over 120 booths, swap meet, and the $10 covers everything on Friday including the meal for the entire family of 4.

Thanks,

Bill

Bill, it's been awhile since Calvin Wilson and myself have seen you since the Carolina Karters days at the Rock. Well we are back racing with my kids up here in Littleton, NC. Sure glad you stepped out to help make Karting more affordable and fun for the Whole family again with the AKRA! Hopefully Calvin and I can make the "THE AMERICAN KARTING SHOW" and see ya again.

Remember guys we are working on a live auction, theirs already roughly $2000 Retail in the till now for it... This is not a donation auction.. It is for profit.. Percentages are being worked out and will depend on auctioneer...

With this said we are in search of a auctioneer, hopefully he will be a racer as well..
Auction time will be forth coming..

Greg,

The home show will be in the adjacent hall to us. We had quite a few families with kids come over to our show the last time. This will be great for the ladies that don't care about the good ole karting stuff.

Booths spaces for the main hall are going great, don't forget the swap meet and the live auction. For more details on the auction contact Jerry at Dover Power for details, should be a great deal.

Things are coming together weekly as for time lines and happenings at the AKRA Trade Show / Swap Meet

At approx 6pm Friday evening the FREE food will start flowing as well as a 1st Annual 4 Cycle.com meet and greet..
The show will continue during additional events scheduled..

The LIVE Auction is a GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The approx time for it will be very close to closing time of the Trade Show Saturday. We do not want to take away your time to visit with the Vendors and Manufacturers during their hours at the show..
Remember we already have over $2000 retail worth of merchandise in the till before the show even gets here..

Anyone wanting to consign anything needs to contact me (Jerry Dover) to lock down your spots.. We figure 50 lots to be the time we can utilize for this event.
