Hoover Dam Parade of Classics/Charity Run

We’re making a small change to our plans for Saturday, December 11. As you might know, we had originally planned a charity poker run. Since scheduling the event, we heard about an interesting event happening at Hoover Dam called ‘Parade of Classics’. Multiple car clubs from both Nevada and Arizona have been invited to tag along. The plan is to have the cars coming from Arizona and the cars coming from Nevada meet and pass in the middle of the new By-Pass Bridge at high noon AZ time. Arizona cars will be lining-up at Arizona’s famous Last Stop Restaurant/Bar/Mini-Mart/RV Park at mile marker 27 on Hwy 93 and the Nevada cars will be staging in the parking lot of the Railroad Pass Hotel/Casino on the Nevada side of Hwy 93 and pulling out at 10:40 am NV time (11:40 AZ time).

Afterward, for those Club Members who are interested, there will be a tailgate party at the Railroad Pass with DJ Joe playing the oldies from 12:30pm till 4:00pm in a special reserved section of the Railroad Pass Hotel/Casino South parking lot. They have designed a special commemorative gift for the event which will be available free on a first come first serve basis with one per car, at their Players Junction Club booth in the casino from 12:30pm till 4:00pm on that Saturday.

An alternative for those not interested in stopping at Railroad Pass is to join other SCMC members at the T-Bird Lounge and Restaurant at 9465 S Eastern Avenue (across from cars and Coffee) for lunch.

As a way of incorporating a charity event into the day, we have something in mind for that as well. Desert MINI is currently hosting their annual ‘Winter Boot Food & Toy Drive’. We can help them with their charitable efforts by filling the boot of their MINI Cooper Clubman with non-perishable food items or new, unwrapped toys. Plus, your donation will save you 20% on all MINI Motoring Gear, Accessories and Original Parts. How great is that? Regardless of the noon time option you choose, we will all meet up again at Desert MINI about 2 pm to drop off our donations.

Be sure to bring a non-perishable food item or new, unwrapped toy to the Fiesta Casino located at 215 and Lake Mead (777 W. Lake Mead Parkway) in Henderson, where we’ll meet Saturday morning at 9:45am. If you don’t have time to do everything planned for the afternoon, but still want to make a donation - you can give your items to Lisa or Mike and they can ferry them over to Desert MINI for you. If you cannot make the morning events and want to make a donation, then join up with us at Desert MINI around 2 pm.

Hope to see you on the 11th!
