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.

A photo of Floyd's car in the Vet's day parade before it blew a head gasket and steam cleaned all the spectators between Lindsey and the Vet's Park...Floyd completed the mission and the General was delivered safely.... and that folks is why we don't participate in weddings.
2015 event planner:
April 11, 2015 Ike-a-Palooza car show at Eisenhower Elementary from 1000 until 2PM.....kids judge, cRc event
In April, 2015 Eisenhower Elementary is planning an event, IKE-A-PALOOZA, to
honor president Eisenhower and let the kids have some fun. We are planning on
having a car show where the kids will be judges. We would like to invite the CRC
to be our featured club for the show. We are in the process of setting a date
for the event and would like to know which Saturday in April of next year works
best for the CRC. 89er days are in there somewhere and we don't want to overlap
with that but of the remaining Saturdays which ever one works best let us know
and we will schedule for then.
