it was a great time.
thank you for everyone that showed up. close to 100 cars in the parking lot. 10:05 pm 30 more cars showed up. the colorado Mazda Club showed and some great cars from the Avalon Camp.

Lakewood police were awesome in closing the road so we could all get out of the parking lot as one mass of cars.

17 cops were passed on the way

1 audi got pulled for expired tags

29 cars finished the drive.

great job everyone!!


pics posted... but, it was so dark at 10:00pm, not many pics came out when 30+ cars showed up!
