Looking Back at the Li’l Red Express & Warlock Owners 18th Annual Show 

Truck Show and Club Reunion 2013


And Then The Rain Came…

Thursday - Surf and Turf at Skip’s and Patti’s. We had a blast; food was great, lots of people and the good times rolled.  Even the rain held off until after the party.   

On Friday members spent the day going to local areas of interest as rain dominated the day. 
At our annual Buffett Friday night we moved inside to the conference room where we watched a photo presentation of past events on wide screen.  Yes a lot of us were a lot skinner fifteen years ago. 

On Saturday, it was apparent the show would be blessed with fantastic weather and by 5:30 that morning the rain had stopped in time to kick off  the show on time.  It was a great opportunity for new-comers to mingle with members that returned yearly to the Li'l Red Express and Warlock Owners Show. Twenty-one Li'l Red Express trucks and one other Dodge utiline arrived for the 18th Annual Truck Show Weekend.   The show included; music, a parts and memorabilia auction, prizes and an awards presentation.  Trophy classes included, Best in Show, Macho Truck, Li'l Red 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, Best Step-Side, Best Engine Compartment, Best Interior, Longest Distance Driven and Most Outstanding Side Wood and Bed Wood Award.   John Roberts presented two NALRETO awards.  On a special note; Thanks to donation of parts and other items for the auction, shirt sells the 50/50 club members and show guests raised $1,400.00 for the club and charity.  “This year we are donating to the Kidney Foundation in Greg Willis’s name.”

On Saturday night truck club members spent the evening sharing stories fixing trucks that failed to start and just having a good time at the hotel

Sunday morning truck club members again met together at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in Newport News VA. for breakfast before embarking for home  A total of twenty two trucks from five states and Canada made it to this year's event.  Other members who had decided to not bring their trucks due to the rainy weekend forecast still showed up to enjoy the weekend, proving once again that the Spirit of the club lives in its members.    Skip
