Belinda won the Captain Prepared Award for bringing a chilled watermelon and knife so we could enjoy fresh watermelon atop Holston Dam and bringing a buffet table for us to lay out a great spread at Beech Bend. Plus she brought bungees and water filled gallon jugs to secure the tents.

Friday and Saturday - we spent both days at Beech Bend and had a great time admiring the 2,717 cars and trucks at the event. There was a huge manufacturers row, lots of flea market vendors, and more 1955-1956-1957 Chevys gathered in one area than has ever been seen! Jeff Lutz of Street Outlaws TV show debuted his new race car - a vibrant yellow/orange '57 Chevy. It was very fast!

The 50/50 on Friday was $6,427 to the winner and the 50/50 on Saturday was over $13,000 to the winner! The 50/50 was run by a local club and the other half of the 50/50 was donated to several charities, including the Alzheimer's Association.

Sunday and Monday - more driving! We departed Sunday morning and spent Sunday night in Sutton, WV and left Monday morning for home. On the trip, Jack & Linda lost the a/c in the '56 and then had some starter issues. Joe's '55 had some headlight problems. But that was the worst of the vehicle problems and everyone made it home safe and sound.
