The Adams County Record Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Page 9 Hells Canyon Days 2013 Shcw & ShirLe Draws 73 Entries BY DON DOPF All of the elements com- bined Saturday to produce yet another outstanding Commercial Club Hells Canyon Days celebration. The 18th Annual Show & Shine custom car show attracted seventy-three entries this year, down about twenty from the past two years. Nevertheless, the scenic drive from the lower country, a friendly crowd, and one of the best open-pit barbecues in the Northwest helped make this year's event another success. Following a week of unstable, rainy weath- er and cool tempera- tures, Saturday dawned bright and sunny. A high that hovered around 80 degrees with a mild breeze kept the day comfortable. Throngs of folks gath- ered on north Superior Street from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to gawk at the beautiful vehicles dis- played by owners from southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon. In addi- tion to the seventy-three registered vehicles, there were another estimat- eddozen or so showing. Unregistered vehicles are not eligible for awards or door prizes but their own- ers are always welcome additions to the show. New to the show this year was a live music pre- sentation featuring Les and Nancy Brockus from Council. Les is truly a wiz- ard on his amazing key- board that can produce the sounds of virtually any musical instrument, and along with his amaz- ing vocalist partner, Nancy, took us back in time with their awesome renditions of pop hits from the 50s and 60s. q-heir live show wowed the crowd from noon Until 2:00 p.m. "Big Jack" Armstrong, the valley's favorite oldies DJ and the new owner of 1380 KSRV in Ontario was billed as this year's DJ for the show but was unable to appear because of a mild stroke suffered a few weeks ago. I'm happy to report that Jack is doing well and a full recovery is expected. Dan Tuttle of Weiser provided that ser- vice for this year's show and his efforts are appreci- ated. Fifty-three wonderful door prizes-were donated by 46 generous business owners and individu- als, thanks to the efforts of Laurene Houghton who works tirelessly every year to make the show even more attractive to the registrants. A big thanks is in order for all who donated. Your support is priceless and the winners of these prizes are always impressed at their value. Judges from Nampa included Bill Horsely, Dave Bettis, and Dave Goff. These gentlemen had the huge task of pick- ing 20 of the entries for special recognition in the form of some very nice trophy plaques produced by Kaye York and spon- sored by local businesses. Two additional trophies were awarded by People's Choice voting and Mayor Nan Rhodes. The mayor once again assisted in awarding the trophies at the conclusion of the show. Winners of the tro- phies and their sponsors are: Nathan Armenta of Homedale, 1956 Chevy Pickup, Award of Excellence, Sponsored by VRS Auto Glass; Cheryl Harris of Ontario, 1956 Lincoln Premier, Mayor's Choice Award, Sponsored by Vaughn James; Bret Karnes of Weiser, 1949 Ford F-1 Pickup, Commercial Club Trophy, Sponsored by Frontier Motel & RV Park. This amazing truck was once owned by the late Ken Seid of Midvale and Bret's complete cus- tom restoration and build was just recently complet- ed in time for the show. The People's Choice, sponsored by Kim Braun Construction went to Larry and Bonnie Stuart of Ontario for their 1949 Ford Coupe.
