    Default First show/display of the season

    Saturday, March 8th was the first event of the year for our car club (or rather, 2 of us who are in the club anyway, lol). The weather was not good as they were calling for rain and it looked like it could start anytime all day, and the temps were in the mid-40s with some roads still having snow and ice on them from the previous Sunday when we got almost 5 inches of ice and 3 inches of snow. But that was ok with John, Patti, and myself, just meant less competition for us with the kids coming over to look and ask questions, but it did make the video of the cars a little sparse, lol.

    The German-American Partnership Program students from the high school decided on Monday to have a walk-a-thon on Saturday with a bake sale, silent auction, and a local radio station out to help raise awareness of their fund-raising efforts for their trip to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland this summer.

    Since I got home Saturday, I have also received 2 emails and 1 phone call from different groups here in Mountain Home, AR to have our club come out for displays at 2 businesses for their customer appreciation days, and a full on car show at one of the local car dealerships, so look for a post in the next month or so with a full list of events taking place here in North Central Arkansas and some of the surrounding states.

    Hopefully the weather is starting to change now for everyone, I have spent the past couple of weeks (when I could) trying to set things up with a few places (and another local car club) to get a few events lined up. Will get a few flyers posted here, possibly tonight yet once I finish getting a couple of them scanned in.

    good luck with the car shows, hope you win at them........

    weather still in the craper here snow, rain, wind, cold temps. Weather up and down temperature wise. It was in the 30's this past week 70's this past weekend and now in the 40's today and back in the 60's tomorrow. Just ready for it to get warm and stay there so that the car can come out and start enjoying it.

    I don't worry about winning, our car is a daily driver, so I never go in expecting any prizes or awards, just to have fun and meet with folks and see some nice rides, so if we get something, that is just gravy. Although the time we came in ahead of another 5th gen Camaro SS that was a newer model year than ours, that one I kind of liked, lol.
