April 2022 Events

Muskogee Cruizaders

The 13th Annual Muskogee Cruizaders Car Show was held in conjunction with the Azalea Festival on April 9 in perfect weather. There were about 130 participants. Curtis Lamb won Best of Show in his 1947 Chevy and Paul Wood won Top 25 in his 1938 Chevy. They were able to watch the parade, as it started right in front of them.

April Meeting

Twenty-three members attended the April 10 meeting, including new members Mike & Kristen Grimes and Nate & Nat Stephenson with their daughter Tesla. Members discussed the great turnout at the Haiden Fleming Memorial Car Show in Peggs. They are planning a float trip this summer and intend to hold the 2nd Annual Car show next year, possibly at a different location. Founders Day prep is ongoing (more on that below). There will not be a May 8 meeting on Mother’s Day. New members Mike and Kristen won the door prize.

20th Annual Founders Day, May 14, 2022

After a two-year hiatus, the 2022 Founders Day OCCC Car Show is on! Members are encouraged to come and help at the 20th Annual Founders Day Car Show. The long list of jobs includes parking cars, registering participants, handing out door prizes, selling t-shirts, pop, water and 50/50 tickets, helping the band set up, swap meet, judging, score tallying, feeding the people, handing out trophies, playing music…etc. Be sure and show up early and let Wayne know you’re ready, willing, and able to help, even if it’s just a few minutes to give someone a break. Terry and Peggy will provide lunch (cooked on his new smoker) to working members and will also be selling food to car show participants. We will meet at Mazzio’s after the show, as usual. Members are also reminded that they should not enter their cars in the show. There will be a designated area for members cars. Additionally, members should not buy 50/50 tickets. The parade is at 3 pm, lineup at 2:15. An effort will be made to get the judging and score keeping done in time for people to participate in the parade.

Jim Cruse made custom hand-made Rat Rod trophies for 2022 Founders Day.
