Saturday and Sunday were beautiful in Christopher Creek. It was a great weekend for the first Christopher Creek Invitational Rod and Custom Car Show. George Billings who put this wonderful event together had 60 of his very best friends roll into town early Saturday morning with their street rods, classic cars, trucks, campers and more. What a great bunch of people!
The cars were too beautiful and numerous to mention them all.
People came from near and far. There was a very good representation from Prescott and Prescott Valley.
Ron Fuller from Christopher Creek was there with his unforgettable 1936 Lincoln Zepher. Fuller was invited to Blacky's Fresno Auto Run and they only select 150 out of 32,000 and you can only be invited once -- pretty impressive.
There were 58 commemorative mugs given out to participants. Each sponsor also received a mug.
Sponsors were John and Olive Matus, Creekside; Susan Keown, ERA Reality; Debbie Aschbenner, Tall Pines Market; Eric and Nancy Olson, Grey Hackle; and Kevin Mystrom, The Landmark.
The Gila County Sheriff's Posse volunteered their time and did a great job in keeping traffic slowed down through the community. Mike and Peggy Milbourn, and Frank Marazza were on hand throughout the day for shuttle service. The folks from the Christopher/Kohl's Fire Department, headed up by Chief Ray Larsen, were on duty, helping out.
There was a $1,000 raised for CKFD.
Everyone is looking forward to the Second Annual Christopher Creek Invitational.
