Automotive enthusiasts of all ages got their motors running during the Lloydminster Motor Club’s (LMC) season opener.

Held last Sunday in the parking lot at the Lloydminster Exhibition, the car show doubled as a fundraiser for the GOAT’s Christmas Wish, a product launch for the club’s newest business endeavour, as well as a preview of what’s on the horizon for the club’s future.

“This all started as an ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) idea and has expanded into two chapters, over $60,000 raised in 10 years for charity and families in need … there’s even been a couple of businesses that spawned from off of it too, which is awesome. What more can you ask for?” said LMC’s head honcho, Randy Marsh.

“Today has a little bit of everything, which is amazing, but we’re actually holding back a bit because this is our 10th year as a club and we’re trying to build up for a year-end meet to celebrate that 10-year milestone.”

 

 

Since its inception, the LMC has hosted multiple car shows per year, all of which have a charitable element to them, but the club’s newest venture involves locally sourced barbecue and hot sauces and spices.

“The spices and sauces were made by our Wainwright chapter, the Wainwright Motor Club,” explained Marsh. 

“The hot sauce was made by a guy in Wainwright called Mr. Pickles, and the barbecue sauce is done by one of the members of the Wainwright crew. The spice is by 1908 BBQ out of Wainwright as well.

“We’re just doing our best to keep everything local. We love dealing with everything local, it doesn’t have to be automotive related, we just love dealing with anyone local.”

The club’s growth over the past 10 years is something Marsh is quite proud of and hopes the future sees as much, if not more support than in years past.

“Helping out and giving back to the community was always a goal; I didn’t know it would be achieved this well, and I’m so grateful for everyone’s contributions over the years,” said Marsh.

“We have the ability to help out in a unique way and I’m all for doing it.”

Sunday’s LMC season opener raised a total of $575 for the GOAT’s Christmas Wish.
