Holy Cow! What a great turn out with such short notice! As I crested the State St hill to go to the meeting place, I saw that there were at least six cars already lined up and it wasn’t event 10am, yet. As we got closer to our departure time, KSL news came up and interviewed several of the members and took lots of video of our LBCs. Unfortunately, the fire by Deer Creek Res. bumped us off the otherwise slow news weekend.
The decorations on the cars and participants were awesome! We also had at least three members who were cruising with us for the first time. Sure hope we continue to see you at the drives. The first time participants were each given a window decal to put on their cars.
Prizes were given for the “Best Bunting” and “Best Vehicle Decoration.” Everyone seemed to have a great time. We stayed pretty much together along the full route, and In and Out Burger handled our rowdy union with no problem.
Along State St., our horns were blaring, we were smiling and waving and accepting compliments from every one who saw us: police, a honk from a fire truck, cute girl in a jacked up pickup truck, car salesmen, beggars on the corners, hookers (that’s what I was told) and homeless people. They all had a moment when their cares of the day were put aside as the BMCU cruised down State St on Labor Day.
There were copious amounts of pictures taken, so please send them over to Drew or post them yourself. We’d like to see them and show how much fun those unable to attend, missed.
Great show, folks! You made the Club look as classy as can be.
