Welcome to the 2018 K-100 Gary’s Cruise Calendar! Many Cruise-ins cancelled and went away last year. We cleared out most of them, so if you have a cruise-in you’d like listed, send me an email with the info and we’ll get it posted. If you have a show or weekly cruise-in scheduled for 2017, or a correction on something listed here, shoot me an email, and I’ll post, change or delete it right away. Cruisecalendar@aol.com
Thanks, Let’s hope it only rains at night! Gary.
Assume the times are 6-8 or 6-dark unless otherwise indicated. Those shown in BOLD are confirmed for this 2017. Those shown
