BRUCE THE OWNER OF “SNOWPLAY” HAS OFFERED HIS ASSISTANCE BY OFFERING HIS PARKING ASSISTANTS.. OPENING UP THE BUILDING FOR RESTROOM USE AND POSSIBLE FOOD ITEMS.. SO TALK TO PAT.. AND OFFER TO HELP WITH OUR SHOW..!!

UPDATE: FAWNSKIN.. “COOL RUN IN THE MOUNTAINS”

IT’S BEEN ONE WEEK SINCE THE “COOL RUN IN THE MOUNTAINS” CAR SHOW IN FAWNSKIN AND THE WARM FEELING STILL EXISTS.. WHAT A GREAT SHOW..!! 50 CARS ENTERED..AND 20 OWNERS WALKED AWAY WITH ” PEOPLES CHOICE” AWARDS..THE “RAFFLE” WENT OFF WITHOUT A HITCH AND THE 50/50 WENT WELL..
WE HAD A VISIT FROM THE COUNTY CODE ENFORCEMENT.. MAKING SURE WE DID EVERYTHING TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED AND OUR GUESTS WHO VISITED THE SHOW..
THE WEATHER THREATENED THE SHOW EARLY IN THE WEEK.. BUT COME SATURDAY MORNING.. BRIGHT SUN AND THUNDERCLOUDS MADE A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR A SHOW..OUR CLUB WORKED VERY HARD ON THIS SHOW THIS YEAR.. UNNECESSARY CONVERSATIONS WITH COUNTY OFFICIALS.. FIRE PREVENTION PERSONELL.. AND CONCERNED CLUB MEMBERS MADE THE PROCESS DIFFICULT.. LET IT BE KNOWN THAT CAR ENTHUSIASTS ARE “HARD CORE” ABOUT THEIR CLUBS SUCCESSES.. WE DO NOT QUIT NOR DO WE DOUBT OUR SURVIVAL.. WITH THAT BEING SAID.. THE “COOL RUN IN THE MOUNTAINS”.. WILL BE BACK AGAIN NEXT YEAR.. GEOFF GUY
