Majestic Glass Corvette Club Open Car Show
Story and Photos by Dave Gibson
A cool, cloudy morning with the threat of rain greeted the 52 drivers who came to the Majestic Glass Open Show the first weekend in June, despite the weather.
At 10:30am, it started to sprinkle. The MGCC wisely elected to hurry the door prizes, raffle drawings and award the trophies. At 11:00 am, the sprinkle turned to drizzle, and at noon, the sky opened into full heavy rain. Most of the cars had left by then and the carnival next to the car show area was dismantling their operation.
Come to this show next year. I will be there. This is a good family show with so much to do! Many restaurants within a four block walking radius, a carnival, a street fair, two stages with music all day, and of course, an ice cream parlor ½ block north of the shows.
Anacortes itself is an interesting destination. At the marina area is the W.T. Preston Public Whaler Museum and the Depot Museum. A walking or driving tour (pick up a brochure at the museum) is worth seeing the Historic District and many older homes and buildings. A fun time for all is possible no matter the weather. See you here in 2019. Special thanks to show sponsor, Jerry Smith Chevrolet.
