  2016 was our 9th year of putting on the Fall Blue Show & Shine at theYachats Inn in Beautiful Yachats OR. This year we had 80 Hot Rods, Customs, Pickups, Muscle Cars, Classics show up and park on the grass at the Yachats Inn. The weather was Fantastic for the Show and everyone had a great time! The Pancake breakfast was done with Orvil (Grumpy) Hanson and Bob Baze tossing your pancakes to you as the participants watched. The Drift Inn served hot dogs and hamburgers again for lunch and The Rose City Rats were there to play Blues music from 1:00 to 5:00 on the grass. Dinner was catered by the Drift Inn, with a delicious barbequed chicken, corn, potato salad plus a berry cobbler for desert that was served to all of the participants. Then the Purple Cats played in the Tea House from 8:00 until 12:30, and we danced until we dropped. Sunday morning we served biscuits & and gravy to everyone, then we started the awards at 10:00. The weather, as in past, was Wonderful. The Sun was on our backs on Sunday with the Ocean breaking on the Beach while we did the awards. Everyone had a great time! This really makes all of our hard work worth it. So, come to the Fall Blues in 2017 and join in on the fun and festivites. We will be cutting off the registration at 100 vehicles (pre-1974), so register early! I took some pictures, so here they are. Hope you enjoy them. Bill
