Peace River Car Club 43RD Annual Gilchrist Park Car Show

Peace River Car Club 43RD Annual Gilchrist Park Car Show

Normally the PRCC holds their largest annual show at Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda, but not this year. Gilchrist Park with a Federal Grant is having a major overhaul and the park is closed until further notice. This year the club had to use a different format and they chose the Moose Lodge # 2121 where the club holds their monthly club meetings on the 1st Thursday of the month starting at 7p.m. from October through May

The Moose Lodge is located at 3462 Loveland Blvd. in Port Charlotte, Fl. Things changed as in the 2016 pre-registration, $20.00 and $25.00 at the gate. The January 21, 2017 show hours were from 10:30-1:30pm and $10.00 was collected at the entrance. This $10.00 gave you one ticket for a chance at all the great prizes and a chance at winning a car show trophy. They had a fairly large show crowd in attendance which was amazing since right down the street at Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda, there was another car show being held. Under the covered pavilion of the Moose Lodge was the bar for any drinks needed and over in the corner they had tables set up for food purchase. The Lodge has a fairly large field where they had no problem lining up all the show car attendees. The club members also bring out their own cars for this show, but are not judged for any of the trophies given out. Between the 50/50 drawing and all the great prizes, plus the many trophies handed out to all the participants it took a while. The Moose Lodge was a great venue, but next year when it returns to Gilchrist Park, many more spectators will be at the park to enjoy all the cars along with their owners. Over the years the club has used the monies from this show and those in the past to help many different local charities.
