Camaro5 Wins Big at RICOA Chevy Show!
 
Today was a big win for Camaro5.com at the Rhode Island Chevy Owners Association All-Chevy Car Show. This was their 20th annual show, which is held at Diamond Hill State Park in Cumberland, RI every year. This year they had around 325 entries. It is a spectacular show for just Chevy vehicles and Chevy powered vehicles. The park is a great spot with lots of space, a pond, a band shell, and enough shade to keep everyone comfortable. Not to mention the food!

This year, while not the first year for the Gen5 Camaro to show itself, but the first year for an organized showing from Camaro5.com members, which included a cruse in by all the attending members.

The cruse started in Burlington, MA, with the meet up of five members

The cruse continued from there to an undisclosed gas station in Millbury, MA

members: 2010CamaroRS, Tessa, Patfan1987 and gf, Silver1lt, chevy 3, Daddyo01545 and son (background)

From there, the line of ten cars headed to Lincoln Mall in RI to meet up with the rest of the members. The show of force was already very apparent in the mall parking lot. Believe it or not, this formation of the "C" and "V" didn't take that long to set up! Count them up, there are 18 cars!!!

The picture was taken by chevy 3's brother Jim, who rolled with us in his Chevelle beast as an honorary C5 member.

Now, imagine all of these cars showing up to the show at the same time...I wish I had a picture of that...

The show was great (I'll post more pictures later). Our goal was to beat out the Corvair club for "Best Participation" for a car club...These guys usually win every year...NOT THIS YEAR!!! Camaro5.com was so well represented that we wan the trophy! And let me tell you, every one knew we were more than psyched with the results!

We also had two awards given to club members. Tessa got 3rd place in the Modern Camaro class ('84 and higher)

It was a great day for a meet and greet, and the win was very exciting for all of us. I can't thank everyone enough for showing up to the event. Honestly, this would not have happened without all of you. I'm looking forward to the next event!

I will upload the pictures of all the members soon. Seriously, I have a ton of them...

Now for the members in attendance!

Wish I could have gone to that show, to bad work interferes with the best shows. Might have to call in sick next time.

2010 Bumblebee 06-27-2010 09:25 PM

Hi folks ! I had a great time today.. It was a lot of fun .. It was nice to meet all of you ! This was a nice recap write up of our day! Your cameras take good pics, mine doesn't. I'm sorry that I snuck away to beat the traffic before the trophy pics.. I didn't realize we were going to do that.. It's going to be a while before I can do something on the weekends again like the year 2011, but I'll be available sometimes during the middle of the week some tuesdays & thursdays, and a lot of wednesdays if anything is going on.

My first attempt at a video. Here we are leaving the Lincoln Mall for the cruise to Diamond Hill Park.
Please stand by, technical difficulties... Solved thanks to GTAHVIT's post in the Site Related
section.

Tessa 06-28-2010 07:54 AM

My cars on Youtube! Whoooo!!
LOL

Finest Camaro 06-28-2010 08:06 AM

NICE JOB.

molloni 06-28-2010 11:48 AM

:bump:

The movies are great guys. Thank you.

I also uploaded the individual member pics. I had to resize them to fit them in my account (normal uploads to not allow for the captions between images, they have to be hosted somewhere). At another point in time, I'll zip them all up and host them somewhere.

Tessa 06-28-2010 12:00 PM

Nice additions Nick thanks!

Tessa 06-28-2010 12:23 PM

Muah hahaaa - I love the one of "our little trooper" - and that was only halfway through the day.....must have been all the excitement of the caravan...

molloni 06-28-2010 12:31 PM

there will be more...

2010 SSRS 06-28-2010 12:42 PM

Looked like an awesome day, I wish I was there, but this past week has not been a good one for me, Lexee, my Boston Terrier had an MRI and she had a large tumor on her spine and she had to be put to sleep, she had just turned 8 years old, so I have not been up to doing anything, but it definitely looked like a great show, congrats to all of you on the big showing of Camaro5 members.

Sorry to hear about the tough week, things will improve for you. It was quite a sight to see all those 2010's in one place and meet some C5 members.
Are you planning any local cruise nights this week?

Hi Paul, probably not this week, maybe next week.

R6P 06-28-2010 03:19 PM

Great pics & even better time... sorry to hear about 2010 SSRS & Havok's misfortunes, maybe another time.
Thanks again Molloni and eveyone else involved. :clap:
