"The Year of The Children of the Dakota Cruisers"

Well, as I write this (June 28th, 2020) things seem to be opening up a bit. I went to my first car show yesterday and it was Lanny’s cruise into Carrington. I believe over 150 cars were there and it was nice to see old friends and meet some new ones. Lansford run was on as was the show in Underwood. So things are starting. As of now, Motor Magic is being planned and of course, The Season Finale. Speaking of the Season Finale, all registrants will pay only $10.00 PER CAR to attend the Finale this year. It includes all Lifetime members. Easy $10 for a great time! AND YES, PER CAR.

The Wednesday cruises have become a huge success with the honoring of different groups of “honorees” each week. It’s a joy to drive up and down Broadway seeing all the spectators honking, waving and cheering us on. It’s not only nice for them, but for us too. Heck, I know of 3 families SPECIFICALLY, that have bought vehicles Just because of these activities. “I just want to cruise with my own car with your group.” That is neat. Some even cruise in their family cars and that is ok too. I think here In North Dakota we are really fortunate to be able to do this and stay safe. I certainly want to encourage social distancing, limited hugs of friends, and hand shaking is to be kept to a minimum. I know it’s hard, but let’s be prudent with our gatherings.

With that being said, we will be cancelling our July 9th monthly meeting at The Moose. A room full of people with close proximity may not be in our best interest. We will have to work on things such as the Motor Magic committee volunteer list and helping sell clothing and raffle tickets, but I know volunteers will sign up when asked. Our webmaster (or Mistress) Sherie Saltveit will be retiring shortly, and has been preparing the web site for the next person. It sounds as though Rod Krause is agreeing to take this over. He has some great ideas and it will be more user friendly to get your photos and personal stories included in and on the web site. will remain!

Well, I hope this finds you all well. We will announce the next meeting in early August. I’m sure that will take place, so stay tuned. Please share our information with your friends that are not of Facebook or don’t ‘do computers’, as they say.

Let’s have a wonderful summer. If you see someone new that you don’t recognize, welcome them with conversation and a hardy “Hello”!

All for now,
