Blue Lake is the 2nd Datsun-Nissan meet of the Oregon Summer. Canby is in June, Blue Lake in August. This is a more laid-back event than Canby, it is a one day show & shine with a barbecue. Some say it is the best all-Datsun meet in the Pacific Northwest. Blue Lake Park admission is $5. If you'd like your car judged, it is optional at $15.

The Blue Lake show was good as always. We had a total of six 1200s this year. White Zombie and Blue Meanie both showed up while ddgonzal was conspicously absent for the first time in eight years. We heard a rumour that WZ ran a 10.4 in the 1/4 mile on july 31, 2010. From just a general count I would say around 220-230 cars there this year -- could it be that there were more than at Canby? A lot of new and different cars this year.

Our own silvia-specr drove his B10 2-dr sedan down and won best of show.

It was a Sunny Day

The 2009 Blue Lake show was the best turn out since the Canby show split off back in 2005. There were about 100 Nissans showed up. It was another great Summer day in Oregon! It started nice and cool (overcast) and finished nice and hot. Nine 1200s showed, plus three B210s.

A good show, although only three 1200 showed. However there were lots of other Datsuns to make up for it -- at least as big as the year before. There were caravans from Vancouver, Seattle and Tacoma down to Blue Lake.
