OKANANGAN CHAPTER END of SEASON SHOW & SHINE . . .

. . .  was out foxed by the WEATHER PERSON!   IT WAS COLD!!!!!!

The SNOW on younder mountains certainly had something to do with that!

Yes Matilda! That is a winter jacket and gloves that Jack is wearing . . .

. . . and boys did we need them!

Last year we saw a steady stream of viewers.

However, this year our folks out numbered the viewers big time!

No problem, we tried to solve many problems while we waited.

Take a close look at Gerald's shield to the right!

This vehilce has one very interesting background!

Someone said this race is no more! It had become too dangerous!

Just enough changes to fool people! Is it 1953 or 1954?

Too bad this Jaguar doesn't belong to our Club.

The Owner had a special tool made, so he doesn't have to use a mallet!

The kind folks at VIBRANT VINES served us coffee in a nice warm room!

Haven't visited the VIBRANT VINES? Should be on your list!

The ART WORKS are beautiful, but . . .

. . . you haven't really seen them, until you view them with supplied 3-D glasses!

I am told, on good authority, that the wines are pretty spectacular, too!

You should put VIBRANT VINES on your 'to do' list!

As the day proceeded we did have a few brave people check out the cars!

This group chatted for bit after three phones were used to take group photos.

All but two spoke with no accents- they were the visitors. The folks with accents, were local!

Next time you see Gerald's Lincoln out . . .

. . . ask to see the Original Sales Brochure for this gorgeous car!

Some very interesting discussions took place today.

Not all about cars, either!

Looks like an original 4 banger!

A lttle group 'Wine Tasting' in a nice warm room to end the day!

Compared to last year's at times, overwhelming crowd, this year would have to be called a 'BUST'.

Blame the WEATHER PERSON - we sure did our part.

A HUGE THANK YOU to ALL OUR FOLKS THAT HEEDED THE MANY Email PLEAS, and BRAVED THE COLD TO SHOW UP!!!!

 

Given a little sunshine and warmer weather, this is probably the best venue available for a Show & Shine!
