On August 10th, two members of the Sylvan Lake Customs and Classics car club made their way from Red Deer to St Albert to the Rock-n-August car show. Bruce and Chris Semeniuk and Murray Fleming and Wendy Davidson enjoyed a quiet drive up to St Albert, with grey skies but fortunately, no rain. Gord and Elaine Bredo, from our club, were at the show early and Gord did an outstanding job holding parking spaces for the other car club members. He had to seriously fend off other show attendees and the parking staff.
During the morning, the men took time to enjoy the pancake breakfast, while the ladies visited the huge farmers market that St Albert puts on every Saturday. There were numerous food trucks at the event, and a variety of vendors, and free cotton candy for both little ones and adults!
There were over 800 cars at the show, parked in and around the tree lined Lions Park and across the Sturgeon River on the grassy Healing Garden Park areas. There were many, many excellent cars and trucks to occupy Murray’s camera lens as he made his way around the show. This is illustrated in the following pictures:
Trophies were awarded at around three o’clock but our club did not bring any ‘Piston’ trophies home this year. We had no car issues other than Murray’s left signal light became inoperative on the way home. Everyone agreed that it was a good day, even if the sun had a hard time shining through the gray clouds.
