This year was the best year yet. Everything ran pretty
smooth, they had a new registration system through ProQueue that helped them
check people in and helped with our judging for the show in shine. They had
some really great volunteers on our committee that keep the wheel turning and are always ready to jump in when needed.
They added a new event this year a Slot Tournament in Deadwood SD at the Mineral Palace along with a scavenger hunt through deadwood. They had their highest attendance in the drag racing and autocross events over 300 cars in attendance throughout the 4 day event and a great group of Camaro owners that attended.
