CRC hats around the world........this hat, traveled recently to the top of Mount Sherman, at 14,100 feet. Mount Sherman is about 14 miles west of Fairplay, Colorado and 15 miles east of Leadville.

Cruisers,

A special thank you is in order to the CRC Family for all of the assistance with the celebration service of our friend, Charlie Lunsford. Dave Saunders and Terry O'Dea for helping communicate service related details to our participating Cruisers on the website and otherwise. The Cruisers who were able to be pallbearers here at Tribute and at Fort Sill National Cemetery; Wayne Lewis, Dan Haggerty, Terry O'Dea, Gary Lunow, Billy Henry and Ray Langley.  Also the Cruisers who assisted at the church in addition to those above; Dale and Kay Cook, Jonell Lunow, Richard Pray and James and Carol Hoffman. If I missed anyone, I apologize. For those that were unable to attend, but were there in thought and spirit, thank you!

Charlie loved being a part of the cruisers and it has been said, the Cruiser Life and family saved him from boredom after he lost Martha.  I think everyone would agree, we are so blessed to have had Charlie in our club and looked forward to time spent with him.  Charlie and his "Marty" are cruising on streets of gold in their perfect 57 Chevy Convertible. 

Thank you to those who made Charlie's celebration of life service special and honoring of the man we all loved.

Rest in Peace my friend,  Shane Vice.    Tribute Memorial Care

Posted Saturday August 20th - We are pleased to report that cRc member Roy Sherry was discharged to his home from rehab today. While it still may be some time before Roy is able to rejoin us on a regular basis for coffee call, he continues to make good progress.


-The club received this nice note from Charlie Lunsford's family:


And Zac continues to wander around in the weeds and drag home more farm-era pickups. His latest Pasture finds are posted on his for sale page which is under the buy and sell tab.

- And again Terry O'Dea comes to the rescue of Food and Shelter's food box and rebuilds one of the food pantry doors that was yanked off after our most recent rebuild.

POSTED AUGUST 9th - FACEBOOK IS HERE. In response to your requests, we have established a presence on Facebook (not Messesenger or Instagram). Our vision here is simple. Our news feed will contain information about what is going on in the club. Not photos of lost dogs and cats, political cartoons (in keeping with our no politics policy) or other non CRC related things. We are new to this game and the site has been up and running for a week now. Occasionally someone manages to breech the wall and some strange things pop up (like some yahoo driving a jeep around in South Dakota with a 50 calibre machine gun mounted on the roof which caused about 2000 comments on our feed and my iphone this last weekend) , but we are slowly limiting what can go there. 


If you friend us, and if you are a frequent poster of items on Facebook - your feed will not appear on our page, even if it is car related. No offense intended here. The page is designed to give club members who are Facebook users an opportunity to get their CRC information in one spot, bypassing the login to our website.  So hang with us, friend us if you dare and see what happens! Thank you for being a member. You can always unfriend us I think!!!


News for Saturday August 6, 2022

For those of you that have been in the club for more than 10 years, a couple of members we have not seen in a while stopped by at the swap meet. Dennis Cotton, who sold the powder blue 1967 Ford Galaxy to Lani came by - he is doing well. June came in from Fort Collins and visited with us for a good while. June and Herman were in the club for years....Mustangs. It was good to see them both.

Posted June 14th - everyone who was a founding member of the cRc remembers CASEY TARP? Casey was one of the original founders of the club with a slick 1954 Olds Rocket 88 , black with deep red flames in the hood paint. Casey also is responsible for the club cRc logo, designed one day while he was bored in a meeting........we never changed it and it is still in use. Casey IS BACK IN NORMAN so expect to see him drop by a cRc breakfast one morning. Be sure to give him your thanks for helping found the club plus our snazzy logo.

Good morning June 5th and welcome to our CRC NEWS PAGE! Yesterday the club raised almost $2072 additional $$$ for use by the DAV to provide for Veterans in ANY Oklahoma Veteran Center. Typically this funding goes to provide a better quality of life for those Vets who have no known relatives or visitors.
