Fords Unlimited Car Show 2019

Like the ole light at the end of the tunnel, our July 28th car show is coming at us like a speeding freight. In the past we relied on members showing up and working, but as the show has been growing each year, we need commitments from our members to be available to help. Some will wear many hats as there is so much to do that day. We need classification and registration workers, car parkers, raffle and 50-50 sellers, ballot counters and so on.

Our main concern is our concession workers. In the past, most of these volunteers were behind the booth all day. We would like to have two shifts of these workers to relieve some of this work. For our newer members, we need you too. Just ask Jim Biermann and he will find something for your to do.

We will be ordering car show T-shirts that will be sold on a first come, first served basis unless you have signed up for one. The member cost will be $12, but will be $15 the day of the show.

For our workers, you will receive a ticket for a free sandwich, chips and a drink. This is only for members and family who work. Just being a member does not warrant a food ticket.

Car show flyers are now available. We need those distributed at all of the local car shows and car cruises. Please see our show chairman, Jim Biermann or John Walling for flyers.

This is our club’s biggest event of the year and we need all of our members to contribute some time helping out. The financial health of our club depends on the success of our car show.

On Saturday, July 27th, we will hold our annual pre-show barbeque. It’s mostly a fun night. Our club provides the burgers and dogs and members are to bring a covered dish or a dessert. That night we pre-register our cars and trucks for the next day’s show. It saves a lot of time since we are so busy on Sunday morning. We will also have a “guess the attendance” challenge. For a dollar, you guess the exact amount of registered cars and trucks that will be at the show. you can guess as many times as you wish for a dollar per guess. The winning guess must be exact. If no one guess the correct number, the cash will go to our Christmas toy drive.

Fords Unlimited Car Show 2019This would be a good time for our newer members to introduce themselves. Most of our members don’t bite so don’t be shy.

Although we allow our members to compete with their cars, we do not vote. Besides, there are plenty of other shows to go to but this is a working event for our members. For most of us, we never see our cars until the show is over.

On Sunday, the 28th, we need all members in place by 7 am. That only gives us 90 minutes to set up.
