Past Meetings 2000-2007

Shay Owners Meeting
Across the rattlesnake and scorpion infested plains of Texas ... through the teeming, alligator and moccasin laden swamps of Louisiana, came the first two of their kind to meet in unity and in brotherhood in Nacogdoches, Texas, on June 9, 2000. History will record that, though small in numbers, this first inauspicious gathering would ultimately lead to the formation of the greatest automobile club the world has ever known. From left to right: Linda and Jim Boone, Bobby and Tina Watson. May God bless and go with these four wonderful human beings.

First went to Jerry & Judy Allen (Pick-up) and also to Bob & Donna Comegys (Deluxe Roadster). That's right!! We got them for 5 trophies...….
