Another weekend of car shows was dampened by rain and the addition of cold temperatures.
Rain started falling around 6 PM Friday evening at the Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show in Marysville, Ohio. By 7 PM it was coming down hard enough to force an early finish to the show.
With the threat of rain in the forecast and temperatures barely in the 50s, the show only registered 22 cars. Several cars left early once the rain started to fall.
Here are this month's award winners:
Despite the bad weather, the show managed to raise $75 for the local food pantry.
There's one more Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show on the schedule for November 9th, weather permitting.
All About the Trophy
On Sunday, Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and his C-Town Cruisers held their annual appreciation and All About the Trophy show at the Buffalo Wings & Rings on East Broad Street in Columbus, Ohio.
There was no judging at this show. The first 75 people to register a vehicle automatically received a trophy.
Rain and cool temperatures in the morning kept the number of registered cars to 60. Well short of the 75 Big Dawg was hoping for so he wouldn't have to haul any trophies back home.
Some really nice cars braved the elements to "hang out" for the afternoon.
Big Dawg concluded the afternoon by passing out custom made appreciation awards to those cruisers who had supported the C-Town Cruisers throughout the season.
Award recipients included:
- Don Fusco
- Dan Kirk
- Jeff Tolley
- Dan Fancelli
- Jeff & Pam Shankle
- Dave Byers
- Steve Schaeffer
- Dave O'Brien
- Paul & Lynn Raduege
- Chuck Kirk
- Don Kirk
- Eugene Wright
- Denise & John Malloy
Club of the Year - Misfit Cruisers
Cruiser of Year - This year Big Dawg presented co-awards to Kenneth Kerr and William Hubbard. Both made it to every cruise but one. The one they missed was due to a Facebook error. Congratulations Kenneth and William!
The C-Town Cruisers have three more shows left for the season. Check out their Facebook page or this website for dates and times.
It's time to bring out the ghosts and goblins as Halloween themed shows are on the schedule for the next three weekends.
