Hi everybody,
My name is Matt Olsen, and I am the youth coordinator for the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. I applied for this position in hopes of getting young people excited about old motorcycles. Anyways I wanted to let everyone on this site know about an essay contest that will be going on from October 1st 2008 through August 15th 2009. The grand prize is a complete 1942 Harley Davidson WLA in pieces, and two months shop time in Scenic Northeastern South Dakota, where the winner will have the oppurtunity to learn how to completely rebuild their new bike. Once the bike is fired up and ridden around for a couple of miles the title will be handed over!! The contest is limited to americans that are between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. So if you don't fall with in these requirements, tell somebody that does about the contest.
To read the "official" press release please go to http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/about/pr_youthessaycontest.html
Thanks for your interest and support!

best regards,
Matt Olsen

Re: 18-25 write essay & win sweet WLA

the people that put on these contests have a specific way or picking the winning essay. they take the box of essays to the zoo, find the monkey cage, throw in the essays, and let the money grab a paper and there's your winner. the key to winning isn't the words, it's all about smearing bananna on your essay before you turn it in!
wish i was 25 again..oh well.

That age thing sucks, but I understand it. Some lucky young kid is gonna have a sweet ride at the end of next Summer.

piston8, you bastard. The only guidance I have is a bunch of crusty old sailors who are disgruntled about being stuck in kuwait with me.

Re: 18-25 write essay & win sweet WLA

Thanks for your interest guys. I like the monkey idea, but there isn't a monkey section at the zoo here in SD. The winner will get picked by the people that donated the parts for the bike at a meeting in Davenport Iowa next September. The essays won't be graded and checked for grammar. The content of the essays will be reviewed and compared against each other. I wish you guys luck. I wish that I was able to give a 45 to everybody that wanted one, but that isn't the case. You can see a full list of parts that have been donated over on the AMCA board, so check it out!
