The rain held off just enough for another successful Canadian Tire Shown and Shine Auto Show on Sunday, Fathers Day.

Held every year on the lawn above the Yellowhead Highway - Highway16 – in front of Canadian Tire, this is the best annual outdoor car show in town. (Terrace Riverboat Days hosts an annual indoor show at the Terrace Arena). Skeena Valley Cruisers is the local car enthusiast club who meet monthly. Canadian Tire owner Bryan Gascon is the host of the show and ensures it takes place every year as well as provides all the awards and entertainment. Seven awards were handed out and one car won two awards, “Best Tuner” and “Peoples Choice”.

An additional event this year was for the Canadian Tire Charity, “Jump Start”. Gascon had set up a radar gun and challenged people to see who could kick the soccer ball the fastest. Although we do not have the last names, three kicks were clocked at over 80 kilometers per hour. Luke came out on top with a kick of 87 km/hr. One Dave was recorded at 83 and another Dave at 80 km/hr.

Brian Gascon paid special thanks to Sight and Sound for the audio and DJ services, Skeena Valley Cruisers for their assistance, JumpStart volunteers and Beyond Burgers for setting up and providing lunch.

Best Tuner – Tammy – 2007 Saturn
