WE ARE THE canadian RIVER cruisers (also known as the "cRc" because you get tired of typing our full name)
-Car clubs should be open to anyone who wants to be around cars... We are...
-We are a NO DUES, low organization club. If a volunteer can't do it, it is likely not for us. As a result, we don't provide cars for weddings, as the pressure for the car to actually start at the church can be overwhelming....and often embarrassing..
-We meet every Saturday morning about 8AM somewhere in the area for coffee, but the meeting is a gathering and not structured. (The right hand column tells where)
-We drink lots of coffee and tell lots of car stories, some which might be true.
We participate heavily in Norman and Cleveland County community events like the 89er day parade, the Veteran's Day parade, the Cleveland County Free Fair, and the annual Norman Christmas parade.
-We hold an annual car show to benefit FOOD and SHELTER of NORMAN. We are proud to have raised more than $10,000 for Food and Shelter. Community involvement is important to us..
-Well of course we do car shows....we select a show each week...
-We are a family friendly club, meaning you and your grandchildren will not find any type of off color content on this site. Children are welcome at our gatherings.

COFFEE CALL SATURDAY! See below for locations and more!
On Saturday, July 26th at coffee call, we will find out who has the longest car in the club. Think of the possibilities.

Location: What-A-Burger
but wait there is more.....A visitor will join us at Saturday's (July 26) cRc coffee call at What-A-Burger.
Ann Sherman is the Oklahoma City author of the 2014 photo and essay book
entitled "Car Collections of Oklahoma: Timeless Automobiles and the Obsessed
Oklahomans Who Collect Them." Ann has been to some past cRc coffee calls and
taken pictures of us with our cars. In fact, a picture of cRc members (with
cars) drinking coffee at Midway appears in the Car Club section of the book.
She will have copies of her book for sale. For heavens sake, somebody please buy one!
