St.Claude Autobody's 9th Annual Demolition Derby
Our annual demolition derby was held on June 3rd, 2017 at the beautiful Mile 60 Park in St.Claude Manitoba. We had a great turnout with drivers & cars and a huge crowd showed up to cheer them on. Mile 60 Park also hosted a slo-pitch tournament during the day, and the derby was capped off with a great barn party right at the Park.
A huge unexpected surprise was when we had our first ever wedding proposal at our 9th Annual Demolition Derby!
Jonathan was leaving for an entire year of training to become a Search and Rescue Technician with the Canadian Armed Forces. Before he left, he was looking for a proposal story that neither one of them would soon forget!
Thank you for your service, we wish you both all the best!
