Slo Poks at St. Baldrick's Children's Cancer Carnival

On Thursday May 23rd was the St. Baldrick's Children Cancer fund raiser.  There were activities for the kids, but the highlight was the sponsored head shaving.  Your standard issue Pok. . .well, shaved head wasn't really a big deal.  There was a good turnout of Slo Poks for the car show to add to the carnival.  Tons of Jr. High kids got to see and chat with the guys about their hot rods.  Many got to sit in them too. The St. Baldrick's Car Show Champion trophy was up for grabs with the kid's choice vote.  Apparently the kids are very well educated at Cascade Middle School as their pick was my Cyclone CJ 428.  It was very humbling and a huge surprise to get the pick.
The weather was like it was special ordered for the event.  Cloudy morning, but killer 80' sunny weather in the afternoon, then back to rain on Friday.
Thanks to all of the guys that took their afternoon to make the carnival something really special  

The hot rods were lined up on the track. . .it was really hard to not want to do some dirt track style cornering!

2019 Downtown Vancouver Flower Basket Hanging

Well, after all these years, the Poks have this basket hanging down pat, it was just over an hour and all of them were hung.  The weather cooperated and only got a few "spritzes".  With a little direction, the trucks were loaded and teams spread out and made quick work this year.  Thanks to Finn for the refreshments (wouldn't be Pok event without food).  
Thanks to Finn, Pete and Banker Tom for the time they put into the Uptown and Downtown Vancouver organizations giving the Poks visibility in the community.

Upcoming can't miss show

The Slo Poks were recognized with the 2017 Vancouver Downtown Association's Outstanding Volunteer Award on Thursday March 15th.  Pete and Finn attended the VDA meeting and accepted our award. It is great to see that a bunch of car guys can make such a positive impact on the community.
