The reward should really go to the dealership for doing all the necessary prep required prior to receiving the Slingshot. A proactive dealer will be able to put the product in the their customer's hands a whole lot faster than a non-compliant lazy dealership. Whoever is the lucky first costumer, it will be because he has chosen a dealer with a "git 'er dun" business philosophy. The customer will reap the benefits of that dealer's commitment to good customer service.

I agree acknowledgment of some type should also go to the dealership. But an award should go to the member of this forum that can say "I got mine first". The "#1 SlingShot Award" goes to???

Hope its me! But I seriously doubt it. Stopped my local dealership yesterday and no sign of a Slingshot prepped area whatsoever.

It could be you. We are starting into the final phase of the delivery. The birth pains are about to begin. Who will be the happy Daddy? The SS Whose Your Daddy Award. Hey. That has a nice ring to it.

I truly believe that there would be one dealer that will get the slingshot sooner than all the others , there could be many factors why !!!
Example ; A dealer that it is much closer than all the others to Polaris.
So the first person that will get the slingshot would only be because his dealer got it first.
I would be the first to congratulate the person that will get the SS first, this person can give us so much info; how it drives, pictures , how it behaves on the curves, Space for turbo or supercharged etc.....all before we will even receive ours .
I do agree with Stan that Full Throttle Motorsport in Lansing Mi should take the cake because they are giving us a heads up all the time and they are very committed to us on The slingshotforums.
It is the same thing in Canada.
Here in Montreal Quebec most probably, I HOPE that we will get the SS first and it will not be fair towards the other provinces that did not get it yet, as example, in Ontario they are still not allowed to have it because of rules and stupid regulations.

WOW ^^^^^^^^this was the serious side of me LOL

Thanks, guys! :woot:
I guess it helps that there is a big enthusiast pushing everyone to get things done. Heck, I even unboxed and moved a few things myself!

(I do have an ulterior motive in that I also want to see the SS sooner than later too!)

Hey FloridaJoe,
I will donate a T-Bag mounting kit we are putting together for the inner fender location for one of the prizes. Are you going to do 1st, 2sd and 3rd prizes?

Got a picture or artist's rendering of the T-Bag? Curious how that will work/appear.

Thanks sloride. If we can get the interest of the members Yes we could recognize the first person to receive delivery of the SlingShot. 1st Place, 2nd and 3rd Place. I was thinking a large embroidered patch for each of the three places. The patch will have a version of the SlingShot logo stating presented by members of slingshotforum for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Plus any donations any individual member would like to make. No employee or family of Polaris or dealerships will be allow to participate. What do you think?

FJ, I'm good with whatever you guys want to do.

I have the hardware kits already put together. When we finally get our hands on one, I will be able to determine whether we need a stabilizing brace behind it.

I'm in Shreveport so we're almost neighbors! I may have to take a ride to Dallas in my new SL to pick up a pair when they're ready!
