Fourth Corner Elites "Funtastic" Deming Fun Run
Photos & Story by David & Jeanne Marin
So, we decided to get up close and personal with the Fourth Corner Elites Deming Fun Run at the Deming Log Show Grounds, August 26-28, 2016, but, we couldn't budget our time to be there for more than the Saturday - not to worry, the Elites make things super accommodating by staging a "show within the show", a "One Day Cruise-In" complete with trophies and raffles.
Those fortunate enough to enjoy the "full meal deal" arrive on Friday are treated to a participants only ice cream social.
Saturday brings a poker run, kids games, raffle prizes and an engine blow-up. Top it all off with a scrumptious salmon dinner and a cruise to Boomers Drive-In.
The Fun Run is just that - Fun! Especially for this pair of gearheads. We have great fun wandering through the grounds, eyeballing the cars, trucks and what have you, shooting photos, taking notes, visiting with familiar faces and enjoying the "picnic atmosphere". The Elites have been around since 1972 when the club was formed by members of the old Fourth Corner Timing Association. They stage four events each year with the bulk of the proceeds going to Project Santa Claus, an event that is cosponsored by the Whatcom County Sheriff's Department, local Fire Fighters and Law Enforcement agencies. They also award a scholarship to a student in the automotive program at Bellingham Technical College.
Sunday there's a continental breakfast, a full slate of raffle prizes, a grand prize raffle followed by awards.
So, whether it's for the three day weekend or the Saturday only show and shine, you really should experience the Deming Fun Run - it's Funtastic!
