SUMMARY OF HOW OUR CLUB MEMBERS FARED AT RECENT SHOWS
I promise and swear that I will be a good sport.
I won't whine or complain if I don't win an award.
I will always remember that this is supposed to be fun.
It's not life or death, it's only a hobby,so help me God.
CAR SHOW CREED
The first major car show of the 2021 season was the "Real" Easter Car Show on Sunday, April, 4th. It's been held in Forest Park for a long as I can remember, but thanks to Covid restrictions in the City of St. Louis, it was moved to the St. Charles Family Arena. Due in part to the great weather, there was a near record number of over 700 cars at the show. The Coachmen turnout was also a record, but not a good one. Only 5 Coachmen cars were at the show. Bill & Patti Dedeke withe their 64 Impala, Jim Klefisch with his 69 Pontiac Lemans, Bob & Kay Meckfessel with Kay's 62 Corvette, Ralph Coldewe with his 59 Alfa Romeo, and Stu & Deb Langer with their 69 Pontiac Trans-Am. The Dedeke's, the Meckfessels, the Langer's and Jim Klefisch all won "Top 3" in their class.
Only 2 Coachmen were brave enough to battle the cold weather on Saturday, May 29th. Bill & Patti Dedeke and Stu & Deb Langer made the voyage to Mascoutah, Ill. for the Back to the Future Car Show. Both couples received Top 3 Awards in their class. Congratulations!
Three Coachmen families attended the Scott Field Heritage Air Park Car Show on Saturday, June 12th. Bill & Patti Dedeke, Bob & Kay Meckfessel, and Stu Langer and his grandson RJ Schlemmer made another voyage to the Mascoutah area. What a great venue for a car show. We were diappointed that they were only judging pre-registered cars. No doubt, we all would have been winners!
