THE SUPER CRUISE HAS NOT BEEN
there are some changes for 2013
The Cruise was started to create a place to show and drive
our rides. It worked. We also wanted a place for vendors and
to support the merchants on South Golden Road in particular.
That worked too. As with all things, there is the necessary
organization, cooperation and communication with many
parties behind the scenes and it’s a lot more complicated
than it seems, but that has been kept out of sight
intentionally. This is a time for fun and enjoying our car
community. That seems to have worked pretty much too.
The Cruise has been privately funded from the beginning so
no one could make us do what they wanted just because they
gave money. The Cruise was for the Cruisers. Costs rose
regularly over the last eight years and the economy stalled
so we started accepting donations during the 2012 Cruise.
Right now we want to acknowledge every person that stepped
up. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks. It says a lot about
the character of each of you.
Nevertheless, we fell far short and inevitable consequences
follow. Sadly, there will be no official DJ or photographers paid by
the Cruise in 2013. Trash receptacles and clean up will
continue as before. The rest of the management tasks also
remain the same, but we’ll still have the Cruise and it will
be whatever the participants and Cruisers make it. You’ve
been great in the past and there’s no doubt that will
These are the correct facts. Anything else is rumor and
gossip and incorrect.
A few more things. Some of the police
have commented that they enjoy the Cruise and appreciate it
when people have thanked them. The congestion is out of hand
and caused largely by the bottleneck at the roundabout at
Ulysses in front of the Sonic. Six out of 10 cars are not
cruisers. It is polite and it is wisdom for Cruisers to use
the right-hand lane as much as possible especially when
going up the hill.
