Greetings Sierra Chapter,

As you can see, there are a couple changes to the annual (so far) Gilson’s Kars for Kids Show and Shine charity event. Things are just too busy around the Gilson shop in Sparks, so we have moved the location… AND WE HAVE CHANGED THE DATE.

NEW LOCATION:  Ski Tavern Ski Lodge on Mt Rose Highway

NEW DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th; Gate opens for display cars @ 8AM This is the week BEFORE the Amador trip and will have your car(s) clean for that one!

NEW ATTRACTIONS: The Chair Lift and Zip Line will be running for a nominal fee.

NOT NEW: Price to display is $25 and includes lunch; spectators are free

NOT NEW: $1,000 cash handed to the club with the most cars on display

Okay, here’s some inside info for us Bimmerhead’s: Last year the Chevy club won the $1k with only 26 cars. C’MON… let’s shake the bushes and show up with 40. No really, if each of the “regular attenders” to the monthly club meeting calls JUST ONE Bimmer Buddy, we’re there. No cheating, you have to call someone who isn’t normally there! And YES, you can display more than one car if you wish. I’ll offer up the idea that at least part of this booty be spent on the Christmas party and/or another club event.
