Blaine County Cruisers to Host Event
September 16, 2020
After receiving a green light from the Blaine County Health Department on September 8, the Blaine County Cruisers confirmed that they will be holding a Covid Car Show on September 26, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at the Blaine County Fairgrounds.
Club President, Loren Skoyen reported that there will be no registration fee and that interested car enthusiasts can "just show up and show off their cars." The event is also free and open to the public.
According to Skoyen, the show was the Club's idea and is their response to the community's needing something to break the monotony. However, because of Covid-related health department rules, no food or drink will be available at the event.
When asked whether prizes will be given out, Skoyen responded, "Not this year, although we may have a Best of Show voted on by the Club."
At dark, the Cruisers will be screening a drive-in movie, Ford v. Ferrari, starring Academy-award winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Directed by James Mangold, this 2019 American sports drama retells the true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (played by Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (played by Bale). The two battle corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and to take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.
"It should be a good show, so come out and join us," Skoyen said.
The Blaine County Cruisers are a group of car enthusiasts who meet monthly in Chinook and who are the organizers of the annual Blaine County Cruise.
