Wanted to share this event with the group:

The Ballard Elks Lodge 827 in Seattle, WA will once again be holding its annual Labor Day car show at the Lodge. This year it will be on Monday, September 3rd. In past years we have had a grill going for burgers and hot dogs and a beer garden. For those unfamiliar with the area, the Lodge is located on Puget Sound close to the Ballard Locks and Golden Gardens Beach. This is a great end of summer event.

For those entering vehicles into the show, we usually have it set as a suggested donation of $20. Proceeds from the event go towards various Elks charities. Usually the event runs from 9am-3pm. Will find some pictures from last years event to share on here.

More details regarding this year's show are forthcoming.

There were a few Studes there last year, hoping to see even more this year!

Highlight both a fast route (I-5) and a 'scenic route' from the International Meet location in Tacoma to the Ballard Elks Lodge 827 in Seattle on a roadmap and then scan it and post it here for a good start.

That is perfect, and may convince some who are attending the International Meet to attend your event afterwards, which is only 43 miles north.

There are lots of things to see/do in those days immediately after the Meet.
Some are a few more miles to the north, and one is a week later.

More to follow... ;)

Finally was given a flyer template. We are hoping to make this our biggest show to date. The Beer "Garden" is being moved upstairs into Our Lodge hall. There is a conflicting event starting later in the afternoon that is using the lawn.

I saw the black/red Lark convertible driving around Everett WA a few times last year, but i haven't seen it since. Does anyone know who owns it?

Wish I had an answer for you, Mark. I saw the owners but never had a chance to talk with them. Great turnout this year. It was our biggest show ever. We had well over 100 cars show up. Will share a few pictures in the coming days.

My brother Mike did a bunch of work on that car several years ago- before the two tone paint. The owner's name escapes me now. Maybe he remembers....?
