2015 Run to the Copper Country

While the rest of the usual suspects were getting ready to head up to Pleasanton, CA for the Goodguys show five couples headed over to Silver City, NM for the Run to the Copper Country car show.  Making the trip was Dave & Anne Bennett with their Tear Drop trailer in tow, Tony & Jeanine Cruze, Paul & Judy Nolte, Ken Schaff & Dee Guintoli traveling through Safford, AZ while Michelle and I headed down 180 through Alpine, AZ Frank & Rose Svancara were planning on joining us but had to bow out at the last minute.  The drive over was uneventful for everyone, which is great! We had decent weather and we (Michelle & I) didn’t have to hit the A/C until we hit Gila, NM outside of Silver City.

The show is put on by the Copper Country Cruizers and this was their 23rd year hosting the show. As usual, it was very well organized and a lot of fun.  They had a rather large contingent of cars show up from both El Paso, TX, Tucson (TSRA) and a number of cars from the White Mountain area. As I recall the total attendance was a bit over 150 cars.

Once again it rained around the time of the award presentation and as soon as it was over the skies cleared. Go figure.  Dave & Anne Bennett invited the club members over to their campsite for some of Anne’s wonderful Tortilla Soup and Dave’s great cheese burgers.  As usual we ate, talked and laughed until well after dark.  On Sunday we met for breakfast and everyone headed back home. Again the weather was wonderful.

If you have done Silver City before, put it on your calendars!  Good Show!

Bis Später!
