On Saturday, May 14th the rain came and stayed all day and all night. Good, maybe it will rain itself out and Sunday will be fine. Nope! Sunday morning, May 15th the rain was still here.
Unfortunately, everyone gets up in the morning to look outside and make their decisions for the day. I do not blame them one bit for not coming to the show on that day. If I had that decision to make, I probably would have stayed home too. Our club was putting on the show and we had prepared for most of a year. So, with it raining we set out for Moxee to arrive at the park at about 7:15AM.
Cars came, then some more cars, and then more. We had the attitude that "The Show Must Go On" and we were offering "Free Car Washes" to everyone. It was not the great turnout we had originally expected but at final count we had 125 entries! Although gloomy, the rain subsided long enough so that we could have our little car show. Nobody went home early. As a matter of fact the show seemed to turn into a party of sorts with most everyone around the gazebo area and picnic tables, looking around, sitting, swapping stories, eating and just having fun.
There were enough prizes, give-a-ways and raffle items for a crowd twice the size. Everybody went home with something. Now, the 16th Annual Show is in the books and the American Reflections Car Club is Grateful. Grateful for the turn out we had. Grateful for the people who did come to the show. It was fun and we all had a good time. We wish all of you could have been there.
We brought two classic cars to the show. Because we were the host club, I had no time to attend to the cars while the show was going. After we returned home, the cleanup of the vehicles was minimal. Here are a couple videos we made for you.
