Cruise-in making a comeback
Too much work had gone into it to let it go without a fight.
And it looks like that fight has proven successful as the annual Cutsforth's Cruise-in is a tentative go for Aug. 29, but now at the Clackamas County Event Center in Canby.
"The county has given us guidelines, and we think we can do that and have a good car show," said Frank Cutsforth. "We've still got to talk through it and will have to distance the cars in different areas of the fairgrounds. If people want to come in and take a look, they'll have to drive through the grounds and the cars will be parked for them to look at."
So even though it will be more of a "drive-thru" type experience, the Cutsforth's Cruise-in will be up and running this season, something Frank feels very positive about.
"We are gonna give it a go," he said. "I can't just let it go. We'll try to be really safe, but we've put too much effort into it all year long — working and working— it just doesn't feel right not to do something."
There's still much to be decided upon moving forward, including the schedule and what all may be involved in the event. Still, that which seemed doomed to be absent from Canby's 2020 calendar is now back on the table.
"The fairgrounds have been super to work with. Laurie Bothwell and Tyler Nizer have been great in helping us," Cutsforth said. "We'll start talking to people and get this launched. We'll just take it a step at a time and see if we can do it."
