The first function of our organization was a cruise night held at Milford Village Shopping Center on April 22, 1989. Our first "Jamboree" was held June 29-July 1, 1990 at the Delaware State Fairgrounds with 269 registered vehicles. All in all it was a good time and our Friday Night Kick-off Party has become a tradition. Our consecutive Jamborees continued to be great successes and the number of show cars registered has grown. Monies collected from spectator admissions and participant fees have been sufficient to ensure our ability to host each future year's jamboree and allowed our non-profit organization to contribute tens of thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations over the years. Our jamborees have been great successes thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, without whom none of this would be possible. Our Club would like to thank its members, friends, volunteers and local businesses for their donation of countless hours of their time and resources to make our show the largest on the Delmarva Peninsula. Also, a round of applause goes to you, the rodders and spectators who make it all worthwhile.
