Meetings and Shows on Hold... Now What?
Rhody Cruisers Have No Particular Place To Go.
Our Monthly Cruise-In and Club meeting has been cancelled for April
Social Distancing is messing with our Springtime excitement.

This year, it seems that cautions relating to social involvement are having a large impact of our "Social Club". Here is the update. 

Monthly First Thursday Meeting at Abby's Pizza: Canceled until further notice. 

Weekly Coffee Cruise: Members who usually attend on Thursday mornings have decided that even an outdoors hang-out is neither politically or socially correct. This is now Canceled until until further notice.

Rhody Days: This from the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce.

On a Rhododendron Festival note: The CDC's latest restrictions extend eight weeks, leading right into the week of the 113th Rhododendron Festival. We are currently in a holding pattern. Before making any final decisions, we'll wait to see what Oregon will be requiring. We are hoping for the best and planning for the worst. When a final decision is made we will notify all involved, local press and media.

Pink Slips Luncheons: A Message from Dianne:
A big Hello to all the Pink Slip Ladies! I don’t know about you, but I sure miss our Thursday Luncheons! ..I think that we now know each other a bit better, with our fun stories and laughter that we share with one another!
I am looking forward to our next one!    
Does anyone have any delicious recipes that they would like to share with our group? ..I am sharing our family favorite tortilla soup which is so good!
I sure hope that you enjoy a hot bowl of this soon, while the weather is still chili, and I hope to see your favorites too!! Write to me at
It's Something to do, right?
... Stay Safe, Dianne
Some Stuff To Do While We Wait.
In our recent Membership Update, I asked who uses Facebook... Well, a lot of you do, but don't belong to the "Oregon Coast Hot Rods Group". The group now has 324 members from all over the area and beyond. While it was not my intention, it has become a staple of communication within the Rhody Cruisers. We see last minute invites for a "Bay Street Roll", Classic Car pictures, Old Hot Rods and even great music links. Gear heads from all over Oregon post, comment on stuff, and help solve problems and recommend resources. Do you want to know what's up, tell a story or post a picture? Its easy to join, fun to post and comment. Be There or Be Square...

 Rhody Days Show & Shine • UPDATE

Date: May 16, 2020
The Rhody Days Show Committee met last week to plan for the upcoming show. 
The Rhody Cruisers members have been working to get all the details together, collecting raffle items, and organizing teams.

-- According To Gary Cargill, we are in a wait and see mode. The T-Shirts are ordered, but are not being Printed. The Awards are Ordered, but no engraving. 

BETTINA HANNIGAN, Director of The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce says: --A great number of civic and business leaders are doing their best diligence to walk that fine line between overreacting and under-reacting. Let’s give each other grace, respect, and encouragement, and a little “social distancing,” as we all try to walk that line.


For 2020, the Rhody Cruisers will host this years first Car Show on the Oregon Coast. 

May 16th, 2020 9am to 2:30pm Awards at 1:30pm Grocery Outlet & City Lights Cinemas Parking Lot, Florence OR

Wings & Wheels Car Show and Fly-In • UPDATE
Date: July 11, 2020
Location: Florence Municipal Airport

UPDATE: Ross Kroenert Says: Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus, he has spoken to the Lions Club and are cancelling the scheduled meeting.
We will reschedule a new meeting at a later date.  

Rhody Cruiser Ross Kroenert stepped up last year, to produce the -Mike Groshong Memorial- Wings and Wheels Car Show and Fly-In. He swore he was not doing that again. He just did it for Mike. The show was such a big hit, it sold out, and sadly left beautiful cars sitting at the gate.

Well, Ross decided that he had a plan, he could do it again.
The show will again Sell Out. It's not too early to register.
