The NorCal Road Gypsies hosted their Summer Show and Shine Car Show at Clearwater Lodge on Sunday July 19th. Clearwater Lodge is located at Pit 1 just off Hwy 299 between Burney and Fall River Mills.
The show began at 9:30 a.m. There were 78 entries from Northern California and Southern Oregon, with cars coming from as far as Medford, Alturas, and the Redding area.
At 2:00 p.m., one of the organizers, Bob Eastman from Burney, gave out awards for cars in different categories by decade. There were also awards for the five best cars voted on by members of the NorCal Road Gypsies and one award for the “coolest car.”
Before the awards were announced there was a 50/50 raffle. The prize of over $700 was won by Phil Mitsueda, the owner of Phil’s Propellors and Fishing Tackle in Redding. Mitsueda donated most of the money back to the event.
Proceeds from the car show go to Intermountain Hospice of Mayers Memorial Hospital District that serves patients who reside in Round Mountain, Montgomery Creek, Burney, Hat Creek, Cassel, Old Station, Fall River Mills, McArthur, Nubieber, Beiber, Adin, Lookout, Canby, and Big Bend.
