Brian Boutin, Gord and Elaine Bredo and Murray Fleming and Wendy Davidson attended the 21st annual St Albert Rock’n August Show and Shine on August 12th. For Gord and Elaine, it was a short drive from their new home in St. Albert. Brian and Barb went up earlier in the week, and took part in the activities on Thursday and Friday night.
As usual, the show was held at Lion’s Park, with cars on display on both sides of the Sturgeon River. A better venue for a car show would be hard to find.
The show drew over 900 cars and specialty vehicles. The weather was fantastic and the crowd of spectators viewing the cars was never ending.
Brian came away with an award for GM truck pre 92.
Bruce and Chris Semeniuk attended the Peach City Beach Cruise that was held in Penticton June 23 to 25th, 2017. They took their 1972 Olds Cutlass which they purchased last spring. The car won second place in the category “1970’s Stock”.
Bruce and Chris Semeniuk, Bill and Deb Larratt, and Murray Fleming and Wendy Davidson attended the 2017 Super Run in Saskatoon that was held on Aug 3 to 6th, 2017. They travelled from Red Deer to Saskatoon on Thursday, and attended the Hospitality Night that was hosted by the Saskatoon Draggins Rod and Custom Club. The event was held at the club’s shop and it was very informative to learn how they ran their club and managed the projects in their large and impressive shop.
On Friday, they toured Rob Morrison’s garage and were impressed with the very exclusive FoMoCo collection.
Next, a trip was made out to the SIR Raceway for the Vintage Drag races.
There were just under four hundred cars at the show held at Prairieland Park on Saturday. It was a hot day and the event drew numerous spectators.
Saturday and Sunday mornings began with a $3 breakfast of pancakes and sausage.
A dinner and dance was held on Saturday evening.
The awards were handed out late on Sunday afternoon, and two members of the Sylvan Lake Custom and Classics car club received awards. Bill and Deb Larratt won Best Pick-up Truck with their 1951 Chevrolet.
Murray Fleming won Executive Committee’s Choice award with his 1939 Ford.
The Super Run returns to Red Deer next year, and club members should plan to attend this event in 2018.
