The Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show 2015

The 2015 Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show was another great one. Everyone who has been to at least one Shipman show, knows its much more then just a car show. Many have characterized it as more a family reunion then a car show. This was my fourth one and its already on my calendar for 2016.

I arrived on Thursday as I have in the past. As soon as I got there Carter took me for a spin in his latest project car (a Vega with a lot of potential). I like getting there early as its more relaxed and gives me more time to set up camp. Although this year I was privileged to get to stay in Cousin Eddie’s Camper (thanks Jay and Nellie). It was a great evening for a drive out to Zorbaz on the lake for a good dinner and a show (the show being a guy driving by launching a jet ski off a trailer).

Thursday Fun:

Its always a good time greeting the Friday caravan as they arrive at Camp Shipman, then its time for a feast. A large crowd of folks in town for the show and locals descend on Camp Shipman for a great meal. No one left Hungry. A nice bonfire and conversation was the perfect end to another great day at Camp Shipman.

Friday Fun:

Saturday was a whirlwind of activity. The show itself is in Downtown Frazee coinciding with their annual Turkey Days festival. The show was well attended by both Fieros and a range of hot rods and trucks. After the show it was back to Camp Shipman for the first ever Camp Shipman Hay Ride. We rode behind Jay’s antique Oliver tractor thru the countryside spotting deer and swapping stories. Then it was back to Camp Shipman for another outstanding meal. After dinner it was movie time as we watched Spaceballs on an outside screen. Somehow we also managed to fit in a game of Cards Against Humanity and more conversation around the bonfire.

Saturday Fun:

It was sad leaving Sunday saying goodbye to my Frazee family. I missed the parade this year, but many Fieros took part in the Turkey Days parade and I am sure more fun was had back at Camp Shipman.
