FINALLY - Appreciation Night September 3, 2019

sponsored by 
CRUISIN' CLASSICS CAR CLUB

It was iffy with the weather so we changed the format a bit for our final wrap up event.  Cruisers were given a "Luck of the Draw" prize as they entered because it looked like rain may begin at any time in the early evening and a quick get-away might happen.
However.....the sun came out and the night was a great success!!!

170 vehicles

Winner for Appreciation Night is
Mike Luciani from Newmarket with a 1961 Ford

Winner for Special Interest Night (rained out May 14th) is
Len Price from Blackstock with a 1939 Ford

Winner for Mopar Night (rained out from May 28) is
Earl Stevens from Bowmanville with a 1966 Valiant

Winner for Ford Night (rained out June 4) is
Roy Lewis from Stouffville with a 1956 Merc M100

Winner for Truck Night (rained out July 16) is
Merle Schewaga from Port Perry with a 1951 Mercury

Winner for Import Night (rained out August 6) is
Marius from Port Perry with a 1966 VW Bus


Because of the crappy weather, it was a "dry night".  We had to notify Tim Horton's coffee van by noon if there was any possibility the cruise-in might be cancelled.

However....big thanks to Tim Horton's at 15930 Old Simcoe Rd who donated the timbits for us to enjoy!

We wish to thank Emmanuel Community Church for allowing us the use of their parking lot - without their support we would have nowhere to hold our cruise-ins!

Thank you to all who donated items and cash to the local food bank.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we are proud to support Operation Scugog twice a year!
(over $1,000 in total and 3 truck loads of products this year)
Thank you to Percy for making two popsicle lamps and donating them for a special prize.  Additional thanks to Nancy Tytler for the afghan and Jack Nottingham for the handmade wooden foldup tray! πŸ‘



And a BIG thank you to all the cruisers who come to the weekly events.  Even with rain outs, we had an attendance of more than 2,000 cars (in total) at our shows through out the season - many "loyal cruisers" (whom we appreciate very much), some "frequent flyers" and an increasing number of "newbies".

In closing, please join us as we thank our member volunteers who help to put on a great show each night for your pleasure!

See you all next year - mid May thru August

September 3rd - Appreciation Night #2

Yes!  We see the overcast sky!

Yes!  We are checking The Weather Network which changes almost minute by minute!

NO!  We have not made a final decision to cancel!


Unless there is a downpour with thunder and lightning, we will try to have the cruise-in tonight!  

Lots of give-aways so come early as we may have to wrap things up early. 

Damned if we do and damned if we don't πŸ˜
Bring your umbrellas πŸŒ‚

May 14th....CANCELLED

Sorry Cruisers πŸ˜”

Even though the sun is finally shining here (for a few minutes anyway) the church parking lot is quite muddy and the grass where cars park is still spongie.





Hopefully next week will be better - see you then!
