In spite of the smoky day and changes in how and when things were to happen – like the fairgrounds being a animal sanctuary because of the Mesquito fire – the Roamin Angels Car Show was a wonderful success. Taking the club’s previous 3-day show and condensing it down to a 1-day show was no small task but Pam and Jim, who chaired the event, led a fabulous group of dedicated volunteers to do just that.
Many people were concerned about the air quality – with good reason – but the show went on. Over 250 cars were on display and over 30 commercial, artisan and food vendors showed off their wares. Skip and Linda from Mel’s provided the music and sound system and Gail and Larry Johnson found a great band that added to the entertainment. Bev Giovanetti did a great job on the raffle and Glenda Anderson coordinated the poker walk. The special exhibits by Riebes, the Buzzards with their Salt Flat racers and the surprize display of Recycled Roadsters by the local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts were all a hit. Another group of Scouts worked with Fred and made sure that the trash was handled. There was a lot to see and a lot to do at this year’s show.
There were so many volunteers in the club who worked hard to make this show a success.
The after-show meeting is on Tuesday, October 25. If you have an interest in the 2023 show, join in…it may be a lot of work but it’s also very rewarding when participants who attend the show tell you that it’s the best car show in Northern California. We all deserve a high-five for that!
