More Starbird’s Info
Other members who attended the February Starbird’s show were Steve & Pamela Shipman and Clair Diller. Apologies for the inadvertent omission.
First (& Last?) Car Show of 2020
They stopped registering cars in the mid-300’s and stopped counting after 500 cars showed up in the overflowing Crystal City shopping center for the Annual Arnold’s Hamburgers show. It was utter chaos. But the warm windy spring air was enough to excite the huge crowd in the unofficial kickoff to the 2020 car show season. Little did we know what was in store for us.
Arriving early enough to get a prime spot and a registration number were Clair Diller, Speedy Maner & his granddaughter/driver Madison, Ray Farquharson, Bill & June York, Steve York and Joe Drehoble. The rest of the group which left Locust Grove at 9 am were too late to register and had to search hard for parking spots, included Christy Davis & David DeCamp, Jim Cole, Robert Thompson, Ron Giles & Susan Lacy, and Doyle Cole. Arnold’s gave out about 12 trophies, voted by People’s Choice. But most of the Outlaw Cruisers had left before that happened.
Twenty members attended the March meeting. Mazzio’s provided two platters of cheese sticks. Discussions included the Arnold’s show. Then plans were made to change the April meeting date because of Easter, an April Cruise and Founders Day preparations were discussed. All of which have now been cancelled. Since restaurants are now closed and groups over 10 are discouraged, the monthly meetings at Mazzios and the Thursday night cruise ins at Dennys, as well as the Tulsa Tuesday night Cruises, are cancelled until further notice. The Locust Grove Chamber has cancelled Founders Day, so the Founders Day Car Show is also cancelled. Jim Cole won the Door prize.
