This year’s Rex Club Days, which took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday May 27, was awesome!
The Mountain Cruisers annual car show drew 64 entrees from Susanvillle and Alturas to the west, the Intermountain area, Redding and Red Bluff, and Santa Rosa and Eureka to the east. Locals and visitors marveled at the wonderful woodies, terrific old trucks (some with trailers), candy-red classic cars, and other very fine vintage vehicles that filled the lot and the street front.
Here are photos of a few:
There were numerous booths, delicious refreshments, and lots of prizes and awards.
The Burney Chamber of Commerce was there selling T-Shirts for this year’s Burney Basin Days. If you missed getting one they are available at the Chamber Office or from local Chamber members.
The Mountain Cruisers also graciously invited all of the candidates for 2017 Honorary Mayor of Burney to come to the show to campaign for their charities. Mary Francis Unterreiner took advantage of the opportunity and spoke briefly from the announcer’s booth about the work the St. Vincent de Paul is doing in the Intermountain Community for the less fortunate.
In addition, adjacent to the car show, the Annual Rotary Art and Craft Show organized by Rotary member and potter Andrew Urlie had eight booths featuring hand crafted wood items, soaps, metal work, pottery, survival bracelets, and home-grown wool yarn.
There was a lot to take in. It was a beautiful way to spend a beautiful day. There was a steady flow of people throughout the show.
