MY OPEN LETTER TO SUBIFEST
Some of the SoCal Legacy community came together to discuss the conflict of interest and gross display of mishandling of rules that Subifest put forth for the car show:
Subifest took our $20 payments for Legacy owners to enter a competition show that turned out not to be a competition, at least in our category.
Subifest demanded we arrive before 9am for the car show or you would not let us participate in the car show, then you let others into the car show after 9am.
Subifest instructed us where we must park then stated at the show we must have our hoods up and windows down or we will not be judged (so no one could lock anything in the trunk and walk away - way to bully us into sitting next to our cars
Subifest chose a sponsored car advertising at a vendor booth as the winner. The car never rolled into the show area. Several legacy owners were very confused as they did not understand how none of the cars showing won, we were told "Oh, one of the judges must have made a mistake, sorry".
Subifest your Car Show did only one Legacy category (there were 3 generations of Legacy in show and an award for every body style of WRX). Well guess what... Subifest did not do a vendor/sponsor car award. Instead Subifest seemingly screwed show cars to love on vendors in a ugly conflict of interest.
WE LEGACY OWNERS AREN'T HAPPY.
WE LEGACY OWNERS WANT OUR MONEY REFUNDED FOR THE "SHOW" PORTION OF OUR TICKETS.
WE LEGACY OWNERS ENTERED A SHOW AND NONE OF US WON, WE ALL LOST.
It is completely unacceptable to demand that we follow the rules and directions that you set forth just to award a car that did not participate or follow the directions given to the rest of us. For the record, this is nothing against the Raimu wagon. Its freaking awesome. Its SEMA awesome. This is about you giving the finger to the Legacy guys that worked SO HARD to make the Subifest show awesome. Guys that PAID to be in the show. Guys that actually PARTICIPATED in the show. This is about being left wondering why we bothered getting our cars ready for Subifest, detailing our cars and working hard to keep them perfect all day for the "judges" when what we were really doing was paying to make you look good while blowing us off.
Max, Jay, Black05GT, WestCoast... etc
