Good Day OBR Members,
We are really getting to the “work” time for our Lake Eva Park show on

you have any input, now is the time to let us know.
Also, due to rain and drizzle, the flyers were not handed out on Feb 1st Car
show in Winter Haven. If you need flyers to help get the word out, please let
me know. We are behind on getting out the word and want this to be a great
Next Saturday is the ORANGE BLOSSOM FESTIVAL & CLASSIC CAR
SHOW in Frostproof. It will be held at O’Hara’s Garage and spreads through
several streets. He has lots of automobiles, music and there is usually plenty
of food available throughout the venue. The flyers reads “Rail or Shine” so
come on down!!!I am planning to be there and to pass out flyers for our
show. If you have not been before, this is a unique and fun day.
Of course, the 20-22 will be the AACA Winter Meet in Port St. Lucie. I am sure
many of you will be showing a car and I know you are all winners. Even if
you are not showing, you might want to take a ride to see those beautiful

In the event that you have not kept up to date on our DAY IN THE PARK on March 15,
2014 at Lake Eva Park in Haines City.
This year we are trying something different. There still will be classes, but no judging.
Why, you ask? Well we just do not have enough persons who can or will do the
judging. So what are we doing?
Great door prizes every half hour beginning at 9:30AM . Chairman’s Choice Awards
every hour beginning at 10:00AM . Identify the car on the dash plaque at 1:30PM with a
cash prize of $10.00 for the make of the car and an additional $10.00 for the year. Oh
yes, only one winner. There will be no 50/50 but a 60/40 .
This should encourage more buying. Then at 3:00PM the President’s award will be
given out to the car that the president deems the best.
We need your assistance to help on the field. We need 10 to handle parking the other
positions are filled.
We need for you to hand out flyers at the local cruises ,
Don’t forget the classes are from 1900 to 1989.
If you have any questions please feel free to call me at (863) 385-5224
And most important we will have music and food.
Bob Lewis Show Chairman
