What an awesome event Woodies in the Valley (Edition 17) was! Thank you to ALL who participated - both woodie owners and the public.
We could not have asked for better weather - and 44 woodies from all over the state made the trek to be here (along with their owners of course <g>)! Additionally, many woodie owners who could not bring their woodies, came without them, in order to share in the comaraderie.
Friday night we held our traditional A&W welcome gathering, with lots of burgers, milk shakes, and root beer floats consumed. Following that, we were privileged to transition over to the Blains' home for a little "music jam" featuring several NWC members and friends sharing some of their guitar, banjo, drums, and vocal skills. It was SO cool!
The Saturday Show 'n Shine went well at Redwood High School, with the awesome woodies, great food provided by 4Seasons Catering, and entertainment provided by "B-Sides" band.
After the show, we took off on our annual cruise, this year taking us to the fabulous and eclectic car and diesel truck collection of local dairyman Rob Hilarides. FANTASTIC is the only way we can describe it. Thank you Rob & Jeannie!
After just finding out the day prior that Rocky Hill Road was now open, we took the opportunity following our Hilarides tour on Saturday to take a quick cruise through Rocky Hill. It is just drop-dead gorgeous right now and urge all locals who have not been up there to do so!
Our traditional Sunday farewell breakfast was held held once again at Brian and Sandy Blain's home, where we enjoyed some delicious bacon, eggs, pancakes, and coffee, before saying goodbye to all our woodie friends.
In addition to receiving many great local and participant-supplied pictures, we were so excited this year to be able to get the services of Larry Pruitt and his Sierra Aeriform drone service. He provided some awesome footage of the woodies from the air, which are included in our photo link below.
