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.

The Sylvan Lake Customs and Classics car club held their year end supper on Thursday, October 12th at the Legion in Sylvan Lake. A large number of members and their spouses attended and enjoyed pizza, chicken wings, caesar salad, vegetables and fruit. The finishing touch to celebrate the club’s 10th anniversary was a Dairy Queen ice cream cake decorated with a picture of a hot rod.
Numerous draws were held to give away leftover goodies and t-shirts from the summer car show. Ken Scheffelmaier won a basket of car cleaning products from Sqekky Kleen Car Wash.
