Are you talking about the car show awards?  Are you
upset that you did not win?

The awards were a short part of the evening.  If you
think about all of the other things that went on. 
Fred Dellis and Rob Grady spoke, Jeff Weissman spoke,
We had raffles where some of the vendors spoke, and
the auction.  (Was there more?  I may be forgetting
some things).

Better organization?  Can you elaborate on this?  To
me this implies less freedom.  Ken gave lots of
options for people to entertain themselves on Saturday
(Look at cars, listen to music, watch videos, shop the
vendors, or just sit and chat!).  If we had a strict
schedule, I don't think it would work as well.

I don't know if a shuttle would have been used much. 
However, if you wanted to leave but made the mistake
of putting your car inside I am sure someone with a
car outside would have been happy to help you with a
lift.  You could also call a Cab.  The cost of a
shuttle for the show would have been a waste.

Everyone who registered early got a tee-shirt.  Each
family (car or not) got a pin.  I have been to lots of
local shows, and have a large collection of "Free Dash
Plaques" sitting in a box.  They are useless.  I don't
need a trinket to remember that I participated in an
event like this.  However, what do you suggest be
given to participants?  (Again, I question if you are
upset that you did not win anything).

Like the shuttle, Cost is a factor.  I think the
volunteers did a great job.  Having a professional MC
would have not added any enjoyment to the show.

Maybe you want to MC next time?  Who are you?!

I did not see any disrespect for Joe.

Based on your suggestions and comments above, I am at
a loss as to why you were so disappointed.  I guess
you can't please everyone.
