Toys for Tots Cruise

This weekend looks to be a fun one. Some of us are planning on doing the Toys For Tots cruise from the Benton Airport to War Memorial Stadium on Saturday morning. This cruise leaves at 10am sharp so you need to be down there by at least 9:30 and many folks show up by 8am to be near the front of the cruise. The entry is one new, unwrapped toy worth at least $10. This is a great charity event that is pretty fun too. The weather looks to be cold but clear, which should make the cars run very well! Email or pm me, or just post if you plan on attending.

I will be there. It's always freezing cold when they have their cruise. I don't know about the cold making some of the cars run, a couple of years ago I was behind one from the 50's that would jump, lurch, smoke and die every time we slowed down. I couldn't figure out if there was something wrong with the car, if the guy didn't know how to shift or both. It is fun and for a good cause.
