13th Annual Run to the Hills

This last Saturday a cool dozen Poway Cruisers cars made the drive out I-8 to Pine Valley for the 13th Annual Run to the Hills – Pine Valley, hosted by the Monday Night Car Club.  As usual, the MNCC put on a very enjoyable rod run and show with plenty of places to eat, lots of venders, and a whole bunch of raffle prizes.  The drive out was enjoyable, the MNCC had reserved a choice spot for us to park, and although it was a little on the chilly side the rain stayed away.

Members making the drive together were:

George & Joyce Cowman, Wagon Masters in their ’37 Buick Coupe Custom
Bill & Linda Bryan in their ’37 Ford Tudor
Pete Walker drove his ’47 Ford 2 Dr.
Travis & Vicki Williams in their 71 Chevelle
Chuck Kramer hunkered down in his ’28 Chevrolet Touring for the drive
Jerry Badders wheeled his hot rod ’68 Camaro
Greg & Kaaren Thiem joined the caravan in their ’36 Ford Coupe
Fred & Terry Edwards came over from Flagstaff and drove their ’41 Ford Coupe (it’s for sale if anyone is interested)
Dick Blank brought his ’55 Ford Crown Victoria
Ed VanLaningham & Lana Thompson made the drive in Ed’s ’67 Mustang
Chuck Head drove his ’71 Olds 442 2 Dr HT
Ron & Kathy Thill made it in their ’37 Ford Tudor

There were a few more members in attendance, but they came as participants with other clubs.  So many choices these days!

Several of our group got lucky with the raffle prizes and silent auction, and took home some nice loot and gift certificates.

We also made out very well with awards:

Travis & Vicki Williams’s 71 Chevelle, and Chuck Kramer’s ’28 Chevrolet Touring took home Sponsors Awards! Congratulations to the Williams and Kramer!

Altogether, a very enjoyable Saturday in the San Diego hills.  We’ll do this one again, I’m sure.
