Fords Unlimited 25th Annual Car Show 2011

Always a great place for a car show. This years show was the 22nd year that our car show was held at this beautiful park.

Well our 25th annual car show is in the books and can only be considered a success. In the middle of an unbelievable heat wave, the temps dropped a few degrees for our show but the humidity didn't let up.

We have had two our of shows during the past decade that were also very hot and our attendance was deeply affected but our turnout of 229 entrees this year was only slightly short of our average.

The summer heat had cars arriving early and Jeff Hohl, Bill Giese, Terry Koch and helpers were kept busy all morning.

Sharon Apollo, Judy Biermann, Sandy Carey and Sharon Schodroski kept things moving at the registration table.

The weekend actually started on Saturday night with our pre-show BBQ. That night about 50 of our members and family stuffed goody bags, pre-registered our cars and feasted on burgers, dogs and plenty of side dishes and deserts.

As has been happening over the past several years, the Ford show is getting smaller and the Muscle Mustang classes are continuing to grow. The Ford show was down to 110 cars and the MM classes grew to 102. The FTA classes had 17 cars and that was up one from last year. We thank George and Tom Adams for their work on the Fairlane Club of America Mini-Meet.

The plaques really turned out nice and was a great representation for our 25th annual car show.

Lots of smoke as the fires burned early at our concession stand. As always, it took plenty of help.

Cindy and her crew at registration kept things moving along briskly. The concession food was a sellout and Mark, Angie and crew did their usual unbelievable job. The ballot counting was finished the earliest in many years, even with a slight hitch that we had. Cindy and Jeff are always improving the system and it will be even better next year.

The FTA classes were moved to the hill and the 16 MM classes took up entire area across the road and this also worked out well.

After the "water" incident last year, we couldn't help poking fun at our announcer, Syl Biermann.

This year we went back to plaques and they really turned out great. For the Best of Show and Sponsors Choice, we had plaques made on the spot with the winners vehicles pictured on the plaques and they turned out fantastic.

One of the best things about the show is the great turnout of members and family. At 7am on Sunday, the place was buzzing with so many of our long time members knowing what to do and so many of our newer members who were willing to learn. It's always great to see many of our members who are not always able to be at most of our events but make sure that they are present for our show.

There are so many people to thank and I would miss someone if I tried but special thanks go out to Ron Schodroski with his work with Dave Sinclair Ford as our major sponsor and to Jim Biermann, who lost sleep for a week worrying about the weather, trophies and all of the other headaches that come with being the car show chairman. Great job everyone!!
