I am not sure why no one has committed about this show, A great turn out of very good cars. The show area was laid out very well. The grounds were prepped perfect. The one odd thing I noticed was the very large amount of police at this show. May be the police thought the car show people might act like they were in Ferguson Mo. Most of the police I saw had their hand on their service pistol. I over heard several people saying that it bothered them .

This event has been going on for many years. Always a good turnout and no problems that we were ever aware of. On a nice evening (with no rain) the entire back field would be completely full; probably talking about 300+ rides. We have attend every year, regardless of weather, and again, never any problems. Yes, always the Sheriff's deputies are on site. I personally did not notice any officer with his hand on his service weapon. But I was not looking too much at the officers. Mainly the rides and speaking with our car family members and friends. Marsha

I didn't go this year because of the weather and the fact that I have a one year old, but the location and atmosphere makes it one of the best events in the area. Never had an issue with a cop there, and I have no issue if a cop has their hand on a gun.

The Morgan co deputy that stood under my tent during one of the rain showers kept his hand on his gun the whole time. TRYING TO KEEP IT DRY.The sheriff is from Priceville, always have a good turn out of Mo.Co finest there. Oh the deputy also had a 34 ford coupe there.

Interesting observation. I noticed a lot of cops but never have payed attention in the past.

We almost got stuck leaving which SUCKED. Thankfully we had some guys help push us and didn't spin much at all. I'm guessing it turned into a mud bog.

I hate the weather didn't cooperate this year. I really enjoy this event. I didn't leave until all prizes were done. A lot of people were having trouble spinning which made it worse. I didn't have any problem. Combination of light car & wide tires helped I guess. I really felt sorry for the workers that had to repair the damage to the ball fields. Hats off to them & thanks.
