Saturday March 20th – Trophy Day – Mark Christensen offered to host the trophy construction ‘party’ this year. It went very smoothly with the “highly experienced craftsmen: who went to work and completed the trophies in time for lunch. We were fortunate enough to buy enough wood for next year’s trophies and avoid the high cost of lumber for a couple years.
Yuma, AZ - Mike Green Open House & Truck Show Several SoCal members made the trek to Mike’s RV sales facility and enjoy his hospitality and BBQ. A good time was had by all.
Saturday May 1st – 36th Annual Antique Truck Show – Southern California Railway Museum - Perris - This year was an amazing success. We broke records with more trucks and public attendance. We filled nearly every available space with almost anything on wheels! The chapter booth was a huge success, selling out of 2021 shirts, and most of the inventory of prior year shirts. Friday night we enjoyed our tri-tip BBQ and rested up for the busy day to follow. Some camped another night to prepare for the ‘tear down’ on Sunday. We had a “Post Event Assessment Meeting” Sunday May 16 and all agreed that in spite of the record setting event, all went rather smoothly. Any issues should be resolved next year.
