June 20, 2017 - Walk a Mile in Our Shoes.....


4 IN A ROW!
That's a worse average than the Blue Jays!
It rained off and on all day Tuesday - even when the sun was shining and the sky was blue!

The hardest decision this executive has to make is when to cancel a cruise-in!

We have to consider many things - such as the condition of the parking area.  The cars are not parked on pavement or even on the parking lot.  If it has rained all day, the grass is wet and car tires can make a rut - not fair to the church to ruin their grassy area.

We need to consider the church volunteers who may have thawed meat that cannot be refrozen if there is no one there to purchase the food.

We have to consider the disc jockey who drives to Port Perry with his sound equipment.  He is entitled to be paid and we have no way to recover the expense.

We need to consider our volunteer member hosts, many of whom live out of town.

Consequently, a decision has to be made at an early enough time frame to notify everyone.  The past two weeks it has been raining when we made the "call" and yet by 5 o'clock the sun was shining!!! 
Who knew?!?!?!

To those of you who DID know and showed up expecting a cruise-in, we thank you for your dedication and loyalty.

As of right now - it looks like a sunny day is forecast for next week!
Fingers crossed!!

PAPER DRIVE FOR OPERATION SCUGOG WILL BE HELD AT THE NEXT CRUISE-IN...
...HOPEFULLY JUNE 27TH!

NEXT WEEK IS MUSCLE CAR NIGHT
