Car bash raises money for Velzy Park

n-car-bash1

Michigan/Michigan State rivalry was alive and well at Solon Market this past Saturday!  Under a mostly overcast sky, fans vied to size up and destroy each other’s colors in Velzy Park’s first Car Bash fundraiser. Tony Owen led the charge, circling to find the most vulnerable spot on the State side before taking his swings. Combatants had their choice of weapons, from an array of bats and sledge hammers.  Solon Fire and Rescue was on hand to assist should a participant’s enthusiasm turn to injury. A good time was had by all who attended.

Despite the best combined efforts of Solon Market and Solon Park committees, few took advantage of the promised entertainment, however. Threatening weather was likely a factor in the low turnout, though rain held off until after Market hours. The weather did not dampen participants’ enthusiasm as they did their best to destroy the vehicle. The rivalry heated up when firefighters, Chris Paige, Matt Schievink, Jordan Nielsen, and James Taylor got into the action, bringing in some of their own equipment. The result, as you can see, was a satisfying crunch. Who won? You be the judge!

The event was made possible with donations from local auto and hardware businesses, Solon Township, Solon Fire and Rescue, and the many volunteers who assisted. All proceeds went to benefit the planned park, to be located behind Solon Township Hall. Monies generated were close to $200.00.
