But 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 continue.

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.
