Brakes should not have been applied to car show

Dear Editor,

I am writing this to express my opinion of the city of Rincon for running all the cars off from Alibi’s restaurant because they didn’t have a permit. That is ridiculous, especially since it was for getting money for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

I have been to at least 100 car shows in Savannah, South Carolina and Florida and several other car shows in Georgia. The cars were there since 9 a.m. and were beginning to be judged. So when the police ran us off at 2 p.m., the show would have been over in 30-40 minutes. But no, we had to leave now.

Alibi’s manager said he would give us our money back. But since it was a charity for the Shriners, I don’t know of anyone taking their money back. I am so tired of this political correctness, especially since it was for a very good cause.

As everyone knows, or should know, the Shriners hospitals have helped and are still helping kids born with defects and with other illnesses at little or no cost to the parents. That’s why the way the car show was shut down was uncalled for and they knew what the show was for when they shut it down.
