Take a bright blue sky, whispy white clouds, about 100 beautiful Street Rods, rock & roll music from the 50's, and a bunch of pinstripers, a huge craft show and what do you get? Overwhelmed with excitement like I did!

The Pinhead Meet was part of "Crusin' For Camp Courageous" fund raiser, which provides individuals with disabilities many activities in a camp setting in Monticello, Iowa. The Pinhead Central section was located in an outdoor area under some whispering pine trees. The Crowds watched on as they striped and lettered everything from mailboxes to automotive creepers.meet4.jpg (22232 bytes)

These decorated items them were auctioned to a very large crowd that attended. Around $740.00 was raised in the Pinhead auction. We even had a 4x8 race track set up to stripe, to see who was the fastest striper with the fewest mistakes. The best times were around 18 seconds with 1 boo boo!

Several pinheads showed up at John & Sharron's country farm house the evening before the event, where they were treated to a evening campfire and broasted chicken. With plenty of beds, Sharron insisted they spend the night, and then made breakfast for all the next the morning. What a host!
