The club has a central meeting point and rolling in to meet everyone was my first true interaction with the group. I have not had many opportunities in my life to ride in a vehicle pre-1960’s so I soaked it up.
Janice owns and drives her 1949 International KB2 pickup Rat Rod. As the convoy rolled into Ladysmith everyone we stopped and checked in with was kind and familiar with the Dirty Devils Rat Rod Club.
The club was parked together and set up their booth. The club sells merchandise such as tanks, t-shirts, hoodies and stickers. Trophies won from previous shows were displayed and the group settled in to signing registration papers.
We then proceeded to take part in a Poker Walk up and down the Main Street of Ladysmith. We were given a specific list of local businesses we would enter. We would exchange tickets for playing cards and the point was to make a good poker hand to win a draw.
I was also very impressed with the attendance of onlookers. The crowd seemed to have a lot of out of town visitors yet there were many happy people strolling the street and enjoying the day and the rides.
This is for sure a show to mark on your calendar for next year.
