Most of you probably know about the gathering of all kinds of cars, trucks and motorcycles on Sundays at Oak Beach. It’s non stop from early morning, like maybe 7am or earlier till after 10. I arrive about 8:30 and it’s hard to find a place to park as a spectator, also for a show car, but there’s always cars leaving, I leave about 9:45 and they are still coming

Last Sunday the Troopers were out at OBI writing ticket after ticket for missing front plates, etc.  There were a few problems in the past weeks with burnouts, speeding and some joker charging admission.  Let’s all behave like gentlemen and preserve this great Sunday daybreak tradition.

Wed nights is really nice crowd at Milleridge Inn.  Great cars and mature crowd. It’s now free to all.
