SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM STEVE PLUNKETT (as published in the July 3 issue of Old Autos)
I'd like to extend our deepest gratitude to all spectators, exhibitors, volunteers and show car owners attending this year's Country Cruize-In. Thank you for your support of 9 charities and making this a landmark event I will never forget. After 11 months of planning, the weekend of June 10th just flew by! Next year's event has already been in the planning for the past 4 months and will feature more world-class attractions.
Mark your calendars for June 9, 2007.
To those car owners we could not accomodate, I apologize. Having been turned away from a car show myself, I am acutely aware of how disappointing this must have been for you. This year's attendance exceeded expectations with well over double that of last year. After opening up an additional 17 acres of space this year, by 1:00 p.m. we were at full capacity.
Major modifications are already under way to insure that next year, traffic will flow more freely and that all who show up will find a place in the show.
