Green River Kruzers Cruise-In
Several of the CRC members showed up in Columbia on Sunday, even though
there was a threat of rain all around the area. There were 5 CRC owned
vehicles parked on one corner of the Adair County Courthouse Square.
There were several other vehicles that made it to the Green River
Kruzers' first cruise-in of the season too.
We found a restaurant named "Taps Diner" on the northwest corner of the square that served real good food.
They're open 7 days a week from 6 AM - 7 PM except on Sunday when they close at 3 PM. Phone 270-385-6003 for 'Call Ins' and breakfast is served all day.

The Cruisers held their monthly meeting and most of the meeting was
taken up by discussions of upcoming events. The 4th of July Car Show
dominated the talk along with a few questions and answers concerning the
Cruisin' The Square event we have scheduled for June 9th. An amount was
set for purchasing door prizes for the Cruisin' The Square and times
were set for 2 PM till 5 PM. Assignment of work to be done by volunteer
members in preparation of the upcoming 4th of July car show was also
discussed. Plans were finalized for the "cruise-out" to the 5th Pride In
Your Ride car show in Russell Springs on May 18th. Members will gather
on the Courthouse Square in Burkesville and leave at 8 AM in a caravan
to 4350 N Hwy 127 in Russell Springs to attend the show. Entry Fees are
$10 to that car show and proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior

Spring Fling (God's Food Pantry) Car Show
Stacey, Linda and I drove the 56 Chevy to Eli, KY for the Spring Fling
Car Show that Darrell Smallwood organizes.
I took pictures of the cars until Darrell walked up, then I presented him with the $100 dollar donation to the God's Food Pantry from the Cumberland River Cruisers Car Club.
Then I took more car pictures.
Right before Darrell passed out the plaques and trophies, he acknowledged the people that had helped put the car show together. The crowd gave them a round of applause.
Darrell then thanked the CRC for their donation to the God's Food Pantry. By the end of the trophy presentations, Glenn Eads took home two large trophies, including Best Of Show, with his completely stock 1957 Chevy.
The Cumberland River Cruisers met on the Square in Burkesville at 11 AM
and went cruising North on 61 to Columbia.
After taking the by-pass around Columbia we stopped at Betty's OK Diner on Highway 55. The parking lot was nearly full when we arrived, but we went inside and waited on tables to become available. They were too busy to set all 16 of us at one table, so we accepted smaller tables as the other people left. The meal was OK, no, really it was good.

March 2013 Meeting
The CRCruisers held their March meeting and most of the discussion
centered around the upcoming events for 2013. After the minutes were
read and the financial report was given we began talking about cruising
to several places during the coming summer. The list of CRC events is in
the right hand column of this page. Check it out often. The discussion
then turned to our 4th of July car show. Several of our members had
attended the Events Committee meeting and were able to secure an oral
promise of funding for the car show on the 4th of July. NAPA has also
committed to being a sponsor for the event, so it looks like we're going
to give more trophies and lots of door prizes this year. The event will
begin at 8 AM on Thursday, July 4th, 2013 and the rain date will be
Saturday the 6th. We're planning on giving the Top 30 trophies, a Best
of Show trophy, a Survivor trophy, a Club Participation trophy, 100 dash
plaques and maybe a few other awards, plus, over $400 worth of door
prizes. There will be a $10 setup fee for the swap meet or a $10 entry
fee for vehicles in the show. There will be music and food vendors also.
The American Street Rod Garage is donating a special Randy Stone Memorial Award that they will present to someone at the 4th of July Car Show.
