    Hi all,
    Fall is fast approaching! It's time to get those Buicks, Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, and Cadillacs registered for 41st Annual BOPC Show and Swap Meet in Auburndale! It's all happening on Saturday, October 26, in Downtown City Park! Still only $25 with proceeds benefitting the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. Last year we were able to donate $1000.
    This will be our 4th year at this location--it's a great place for a show with plenty of shade, clean public restrooms, and good music. Awards for the top 10 of each class with participant judging. So get registered! Those registering before October 7, will receive a FREE BOPC (sm/med/lg/xl) t-shirt! Other sizes available for $2 extra.

    Liked it when you guys were in Old Town. Also your dates conflict with the GS Nationals. (for us Buick guys)

    It conflicted last year also. It was nice at Old Town, 25 years ago it drew 250 cars and had a huge swap meet. When they refurbished Old Town the show had to be moved, then they wanted to charge the Olds club to bring it back. Why they wanted to charge the club to attract people to their venue I don't understand.

    I dont get the thinking either. They still do the Friday / Sat night cruise. Whenever Im in that area I go to it. Even got a flag one night!

    I got a flyer last week for this and that was the same comment I made. Why , again on the same day as of our nationals. You would get a lot more Buick attendance if you would talk to who ever is in charge there. Come on man change it!

    BOPC's been the last Saturday in October as long as I can remember. Last year they moved the Nats to a later date. Anyone know why they did that?

    Scheduling conflict with Beech Bend. If a bigger group wants certain dates and they are willing to pay more we get bumped.
