|NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY PARADE
October 27, 2018
by Bob Bortree
Maggie and I have not participated in the NAU Parade for a number of years because of
Tequila Sunrise and the raucous support from parade attendees.
NAU had moved it to their campus a few years ago and much to our surprise, we had a Great Time!
Club members participating in the parade were: Richard Federico and his “guarddog” in their ‘81 Delorian,
Juergen Burmeister with his ’99 BMW Z3 Coupe,
Curtis Deibel and his railroader friend John driving the ‘65 GMC Tow Truck,
and Maggie and me in our ‘55 Chevy.
The weather was outstanding, and the parade route flat (no clutch eating).
It was a very well organized event with the coordinating being done by mostly young ladies; t
he parade went off like clockwork.
The crowd was mostly families with small kids having a good time and with no “party” gatherers.
As a personal note, I would like to extend our thanks and admiration to the parade coordinators -
those girls made us feel proud about our future leaders. Events like this including parades,
car displays, cruises, etc, are a great opportunity to get to know fellow club members and promote our club.
Think about it - come out and support our Route 66 Club events!
