14th Annual “Bring More Wax” Show n’ Shine Wickham Park, Manchester CT. June 2, 2019

The weather was comfortable, with partly sunny skies to start, but there were strong storms due later that afternoon. Would we finish in time?!

The car turnout was very respectable, with 33 entrants. Unfortunately, we lost a few regular participants due to schedule conflicts and an injury. However, there were also some new faces present.

Category winners were decided, by popular vote, for the Best 2-Door, Best 4-Door, and Best-In-Show cars. A raffle drawing, open only to show entrants, featured a $150 Gift Certificate grand prize. The moral of the story remains the same as ever…entering your car is fun and can be quite rewarding!

Prizes for the three category winners were Shell gift cards, provided courtesy of the BMW CCA Connecticut Valley Chapter. Using Top Tier fuel is always a good idea and can prevent buildup and add to engine performance. Without further ado…the winners were: $150 Gift Certificate Raffle Winner was Nathan Sartwell, with prize accepted by Eliana Sartwell.

All this great fun doesn’t happen on its own, so it’s time to acknowledge some significant helpers, including Jackie Chartier, as well as jerri & Willy Wiley. Also thanks to our outdoor chef Bob Morin, and to Pete Smith for covering backup grill duties.
