ISSABOUTTIME – Car Show in Middle of St. George

10 AM – 2 PM – The day begins with a Car Show!

We Classic Car Buffs have been waiting for too many years to gt a car show back in the middle of town. I know we were all hoping to gt back on Main Street one of these days, but this is going to be a great spot for Saturday’s 1st Responders Car Show 10-31-15   The show got a nice article on SGNews:

  • Huge parking lot with easy access just off 200 West & 100 South right downtown
  • Walking distance to everything in the center of town
  • Lots of grass right next to the lot
  • About as good of an exposure as you could muster up down there
  • A good number of preregistered entrants

Don’t miss this one and spread the word to family and friends to come on out and support all for those we call on now and again to help us.

We are who we are as a great nation because of all those willing to help us all on the front lines of Law Enforcement, Fire Units, Rescue Teams, Medical Emergency Responders, Military (as always), Emergency Services of all kinds, etc, etc.

Mesquite Car Show Better Than Expected – BY FAR!!!!!!

We did not get a good count of the number of cars, people, or lookers at the Eureka Mesquite Rotary Club Show, but there were plenty of every mix, match, and variety you could imagine.

Right out of the bag it was a great day for a cruise over Utah Hill and Old Hwy. 91 with light traffic and perfect weather. We must have had about 12-15 cars in our group and others met us down there. As usual, the late lunch at Los Lupes was happily wolfed by all.

Our hats go off to Jake Noll and all the Rotary Club volunteers along with the Mesquite Classic Car Owners making everyone feel welcome. We are already looking forward to next year’s show.

Best of Show went to an amazing Firebird, and the best award of all, People’s Choice, went to Dick & Beth Crabtree with their sweet 1939 Buick Convertible   ↓  And, be sure to check out more photos on “Memory Lane” section on the top menu bar.

Cheryl Rogers Barnett/Shop Tour at Stan Snow’s/FREE Dinner/Book Signing

Saturday, October 10th – 4 PM – 7 PM

Don’t miss this one….everything a car person would wish to have. Cheryl Rogers Barnett, daughter of Roy Rogers & Dale Evans will be doing a BOOK SIGNING for those of you who want to grab one of her new books and read through some of her, and our, childhood memories about her parents Roy Rogers & Dale Evans. The featured book (on the flyer below) this time will be just her latest of several she has authored. There is certainly no obligation to purchase a book to attend….just come on out and have fun.

Note from Cheryl, “Hey Everybody, Carmen and Stan have a great party lined up!  Not because I am going to be there with my new book and the documentaries that Larry and I made on my folks (Roy & Dale) but because there is going to be GREAT FOOD!  Hope to see everyone there starting at 4PM.”

Larry & Cheryl have the 1948 Ford Convertible pictured below nicknamed “The Little Yellow Peril” and participate in almost all of the collector car functions in the area.

Dinner (as you arrive) will be served buffet style which will include sliders, beans, dessert & more……….Did I happen to mention FREE Food???? Food prep will be by our very own master food guy – Mike Mcfarland – Did I mention FREE! Compliments off Stan & Carmen Snow personal friends of Larry & Cheryl.

Also, western dance lessons will be offered during this event along with some Roy & Dale documentaries being shown.

For all who wish, and don’t know exactly where Stan’s is, let’s meet up on Washington Dam Rd. just as you turn off of South Washington Fields Road along the road there. We will depart that location about 3:45 and it is just a hop, skip, and jump from there.

Did I mention FREE FOOD???? And, Cheryl’s new book is amazing.
