HUGE Update: 8/10/17 — Ice Cream, water, the attendence poll, Tool sets for kids, Wizard mist and shine spray, Best Dressed Duo (Pick Up My Tab Contest), disclaimer, & legal stuff.
-HUGE UPDATE! Here we go.
Easy stuff: The voting poll for ice-cream won, so we'll have free ice-cream on Sunday. We will also bring complementary bottled water too just in case its hot. It is helpful to know how much to bring, so please confirm you're coming on our event page so we can try to be as prepared as possible, however supply may be limited. Also, please be respectful of the location and other peoples' property at the show. We'll have trash cans around the area for use. This is a public event, please be responsible.
In the spirit of kids and mechanical engineering. Confirmed. The first 25 kids over 8 years old and under age 14 will receive a free SAE/Metric socket set. In order to avoid potential issues please bring your child's student activity card/ID from school or personal ID just in case. I know some kids in Jr. High that are taller than me. It will help avoid potential problems. Note: while we do endorse kids using them, we cannot be responsible for anything your child may attempt to disassemble in the future. ;) Also, we reserve the right to limit the number of sets per family, out of respect for others.
Next, in the spirit of the community… I have been going to several coffee cruises & car shows around Omaha, talked to some folks, and I've heard your requests. The first 20 pre-1973 classic or antique cars that sign up for the «Judged Show» will receive a free 20 oz. bottle of 'Wizard Mist and Shine professional detail spray' for free. Yeah, that stuff that people swear by and some thought you couldn't get anymore. Well, we got a pallet.
For the people who love cars, but don't necessarily have a car to show off, you'll have the opportunity to win too. There will be a prize for the «Best Dressed Duo» in attendance at the Car Show. Note: Best dressed duo, not couple. If you want to come with your significant other that's fine, if you want to come with your best-friend (guy or girl) that's allowed to, if you want to come with a family member, that counts. If your duo is a low-rider in a stroller, you still qualify. Come in your Sundays finest, wear a costume, or just be fancy. In order to compete, you'll need to attend the car show, and then take a selfie next to the kid Tumbler while holding a sign saying #investinkids. We'll have several signs available on site for use. Post your picture on our Facebook page (Tyrome Williams Foundation) with "#investinkids" the day of the car show, and you've entered. The Duo picture with the most likes by the end of the day (11:59AM, August 27, 2017) wins. Well, what do we win exactly? Well, you both will get a sweet trophy, and then you, me, and your friends will go out, celebrate your awesomeness, get food, and I (Tyrome) will pick up the tab. If the two of you and your friends want to go to Sinful Burger and get a few Gluttony Burgers (Two Sinful burger patties stacked with bacon and more cheese. Topped with 2 grilled cheese sandwiches as buns and an ice cold drink. Total weight is well over a pound. I'll be pumped for a nap afterwards, but let's do it! If you want something with a nice atmosphere like Via Farina (#ViaFarina), handcrafted pasta and a wood-fed oven fired pizza, I'm in. If you want bacon shakes, wild wings, or enough tacos to feed your squad, you say the word. If you have school and are studying on campus and need sandwiches, wings, or pizzas to feed your your study group, you call me. :P Participants need not enter the 'show and shine or judged car show' to win, however are still allowed to do so if they wish. Pick up Tab limited to a maximum tab of $150 USD after taxes.
