Chisholm Trail Gun Show

We have talked to the Chairman of the gun show at the coliseum, and he welcomes us to display our vehicles. The show will be October 10th, and 11th. But we are to bring our vehicles in on the 9th. He needs to know how many vehicles will be on display and what size area we will need, because there is a limited space. We told him around 4 to 6 vehicles, but we need to know who wants to bring there’s for sure. It will be secured at night and batteries need to be disconnected.

Here we go again, our club meeting will have to wait until further notice. This display will give us a chance to gain members and advertise, because it is a large show.

The Oxford parade was great. Nine members, four vehicles and no rain! A friend of Joe Rankin graciously provided his garage for our short meeting and also cookies his wife made. The parade started on time with no hitches. Thanks Joe, for being our host.

Eureka Trails

What a wonderful day of convoying through the Flint Hills. It looked like it was going to rain and then later the sun came out and the hills were beautiful. We arrived in Eureka around 10 AM and unloaded our vehicles. There were 6 vehicles and 11 members present. President, Dave Billings, led us in the Pledge of Allegiance of the Flag and Gary led us in prayer.

We ate lunch at Cindy’s Copper Kettle where, Cindy, came out and even washed our windows and gave us home made cookies to take with us. Then we left for the hills, through mud, rocks and even cows and wild horses. We stopped at an old school house that the district uses as a fire station, an old Norwegian church and also a stop at Preston Evenson’s farm for a potty break. Then on to Teterville, an old oil town and the highest point of interest, a tall rock overlooking the whole county. What beauty! On the
way back around the Eureka Lake with a stop at the maintenance shop to visit with Willie and Rita Day. Rita went with us on the convoy and Willie helped David with the trail plans.

We arrived back at around 5 p.m. and loaded our vehicles for home where we will power wash our vehicles. Thanks to our son, David, and his friends for such a lovely day.
