We carried out our Second Annual Chuckanut Cruise for the Benefit of Northwest Harvest this past May 8th and we couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

We counted around 50 cars at the Lynnwood Park & Ride at 10:30 a.m., right before we were set to depart towards Bellingham via I-5 through Chuckanut Drive. We had already collected around 250lbs of food at that point.

The cruise was held in a very organized manner and departing the location was done in an orderly fashion with no delays. We are also happy to report that we did not see any instances of speeding or other inappropriate driving and the convoy made it to Bellingham without incident. We really want to commend everyone on their good behavior on the road.

Once there, we stormed the Weblocker for some badly needed refreshments and food. Thanks again to the staff at the Weblocker for being so accommodating and friendly to us. Their service is bar none and they were able to pump out delicious food for our massive group of drivers without delay and with a friendly smile.

Weather-wise, we couldn't have been more pleased. It was sunny and in the 70s all day long, which allowed us to really make a day out of it and hit the beach at Larrabee State Park for some mingling with our attendees and a bit of R&R before hitting the road back towards the Seattle Metro area. Many of our attendees took the time to snap some photos throughout the day as well, feel free to check out this thread on VWVortex for some nice examples of what the day was like.

Overall, we consider this cruise a great success. Everyone had a great time and we were able to collect a very respectable amount of food donations for Northwest Harvest, which was the ultimate goal of the cruise. Everyone involved should be pleased knowing that not only was it an amazing drive through gorgeous weather and scenic roads with good friends, but it was all for a great cause – which in the end is what BPC is all about.

Thanks to everyone for coming along for the ride and keep an eye on our events section for our next charity drive coming soon!
