May 24, 2023 | View PDF
The 4th Annual Richland County Sportsman's Club Car Show will be Saturday, June 17, this year.
Several local enthusiasts are expected to bring their classic cars, current hot rods, and works in progress to show off their rides.
The car show was started back in 2019 for the Sportsman's Club to raise money to establish an outdoor public shooting range in Richland County. Larry Christenson said, "We're still looking for land, but that ain't nothing new."
There is, currently, one shooting range just northwest of Sidney on Hwy. 16 but it is owned and run by the Sidney Trap Club and is for shotguns only. No rifles allowed.
Registration for the car show will be $35 per judged entry and $10 per unjudged entry. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in the car show will each receive a cash prize. There will be a People's Choice winner. They will receive a one-day, two-person fishing trip to Indian Hills Resort. Each vehicle registration includes a driver and one passenger. Admission is $5 per person and kids 12 and under are free.
Besides the car show, there will be a raffle and a 50/50 draw. Tickets are one for $5 and five for $20. Raffle winners need not be present to win. The 1st prize winner will receive a 12-gauge semiautomatic shotgun and the 2nd prize winner will get a whole McCone Heritage Berkshire hog, cut and wrapped by Craig's Meat, Savage. The 3rd place winner will get a 75-quart cooler. The sole winner of the 50/50 draw will receive half the pot and must be present to win. For more information call 406-489-0589.
The car show will be held at Moose Park, 7th Ave. SW from noon-4 p.m. Registration will be in the morning, from 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
