Awards - Special trophies will be awarded to the categories of People's Choice, Longest Distance Traveled, Longest Pocher, best 1:8 Ferrari model or engine (including Rosso 643 and Arno XI hydroplane), and Most Shocking Use of a Pocher Kit. These awards will not be confused with bowling trophies.

Demonstrations - the Elves of Model Motorcars will be on site and available for Q&A as well as demonstrations of how-to and how-not-to build Pochers

Door prizes - Everyone who attends will receive a special CD/ROM of construction journals for the Pocher Alfa, Mercedes and Rolls-Royce
New products - Model Motorcars will unveil some new products as Show Specials
