30th
Anniversary Concours d'Elegance
Sunday, October 2, 2016

Planning meetings for the 30th Anniversary show are done.  Co-Chairs Paul Ziemer (509-591-9285), Corky Farrell (509-627-9586), and Kevin Davis (509-521-3693) have been meeting with several others to get some the details settled.  We intend for the 30th Anniversary show to be the best yet.  The show will be at Columbia Crest Winery 1.5 miles north of Paterson on SR-221.  One change from our earlier plans: the post-show dinner at 5 pm has been changed from Bob's Burgers & Brews to Azteca at US-395 and 10th Avenue in Kennewick.

The pre-registration forms have been completed.  These were mailed to the past 3 years' entrants and to PNWMC members on August 30th.  If you have not received yours in the mail by September 6th, you can download the form here 2016_Fall_Mailer_8-22_Final.pdf

.  This pre-registration form can not be filled out or submitted on-line.  It has to be printed, filled out by hand, and mailed or hand-delivered to us (sorry!) with the entry fee.  We do not have the ability to accept credit or debit cards as payment.  We gladly accept cash or checks.  The winery does NOT have an ATM.

The pre-registration form also has areas for purchasing show t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, and special 30th Anniversary caps ahead of time.  If you have not ordered these items already, it is now too late for advance orders.  We will have very limited supplies available for sale at the show.  The PNWMC and Columbia Crest Winery have worked together to design the artwork for these articles.  We are very impressed with the artwork for this show.  The back  of the t-shirts and sweatshirts will look like this on the dark green fabric:


The caps and the fronts of the shirts and sweats have this logo on the front:

This logo is embroidered on the caps.

But that's not all!  Entrants this year will also receive a pair of wine glasses with this logo:


We also have arrangements once again with the Inn at Horse Heaven (Best Western) in Prosser at 359 Merlot Drive for a special rate.  Fifteen rooms were set aside until September 15th.  We have been informed that all these rooms are taken.  There are several other motels in the Prosser, Tri-Cities, and Hermiston/Umatilla areas, if needed.

The trophies for this special show are also being upgraded.  Grant Culley, Paul Ziemer, and others have worked hard on them and they are nearly finished.  The 30th Anniversary trophies are cut from oak instead of the traditional pine, but are the same size and shape as in past years.

Acoustic Java will return for afternoon entertainment.  Tip Pit BBQ will return to sell lunches.

We will be marking the predicted spaces needed for the car classes on Saturday, October 1st, starting at 10 a.m.  We believe that this will speed up our Sunday morning setup at Columbia Crest.  Our predicted time to start letting cars in for parking on Sunday remains 9 a.m.

The weather forecast as of early Friday afternoon from the Washington Department of Transportation web site is for a Sunday morning low of 40-45 with highs Saturday and Sunday around 70.  Precipitation probabilities from the NOAA web site are 10% Saturday afternoon, decreasing to 5% all day Sunday.  The weather could also be breezy, but we don't expect the blowing dust we had in 2009.

29th Annual Concours d'Elegance
Sunday, October 4, 2015
The show will be at Columbia Crest Winery, of course, on SR-221 about 1.5 miles north of SR-14 in Paterson, WA.  Registration and parking traditionally begin about 9 am; we try to start the awards ceremony around 3 pm.  The show is open to all vehicles on 4 wheels (dualie pickups accepted also), regardless of make or condition.  Additional details will be worked out at the planning meetings.  Fall Show planning meetings begin at 6:30 pm on Mondays at Round Table Pizza, Leslie and Gage in south Richland.  There will be no meeting on September 7th (Labor Day); the meeting on September 14th will be in the RTP at George Washington Way and Torbett in Richland.   Feel free to arrive earlier to eat.  Corky Farrell (509-627-9586) and Gera Gonzalez (509-460-6666) are the show co-chairs.  We always have plenty to discuss.  We'll need a lot of volunteers.

As of early September, the following have been accomplished:
Grant Culley has completed making the trophies except for applying the labels;
The shirt design is completed;
Acoustic Java has agreed to furnish the live entertainment;
Tip Pit Barbecue has agreed to sell the lunches;
The Best Western's The Inn at Horse Heaven in Prosser has set aside rooms for reservation; these rooms are available at reduced rates through September 18th.
The pre-registration form has been completed and mailed out to PNWMC members and other recent years' entrants.  If you still need one, it's also available right here --->

28th Annual Concours d' Elegance
Sunday, October 5, 2014

Columbia Crest Winery - Paterson, Washington

Our 28th Annual Concours d'Elegance was a great success with 199 cars and trucks registered; 192 of them were on the grass at the show.  This turnout is a record for our Fall Show and we can't thank the attendees enough for making it so.  We're also happy to report that Columbia Crest Winery probably broke some sales records that day, as well.  Show co-chairs Paul Ziemer and Corky Farrell, Parking Director Steve Wallner, and all the other volunteers had their stressful moments with the planning and execution of the show, but most everything seemed to go well.  The weather could not have been better.  Please enjoy photos from the show, below.

Participants' Choice Best of Show Winner: a Spruce Micah 1948 Chevrolet Thriftmaster pickup entered by Rob and Gaylyn Concienne of the Sundown car club.
 

Columbia Crest Winery's staff selected the Raven Black 1965 Mustang GT fastback entered by Jim and Nancy Ramsden of the Mustang Wranglers as its Best of Show winner.



A group of representatives from each of the attending clubs selected the blue and silver 1967 Mustang fastback entered by Gary and Iris Christie as the Presidents' Choice Best of Show winner.



We had a lot of other winners at the show, too.  The complete list of trophy winners is available in this file: 2014_Fall_ShowTrophy_Winners_Report.pdf
