The nonprofit club coordinated its annual car show in conjunction with the county picnic in Quincy as it has for the last 28 years. "All proceeds from the club are distributed back into the local communities through donations to the volunteer fire departments, Portola and Quincy Food Banks and both of the Quincy animal rescue shelters," said club supporter Patricia Kirk. Several Quincy business owners support the group by sponsoring the 59 trophies presented at this year's show.

That may be because he designed a job around what he loves to do, high adventure sports. Elliot, a Chester High School graduate and former Feather River College student, created Pups N' Suds Productions. "We specialize in adventure fiimmaking," said Elliot. The young entrepreneur has a specific goal of bringing remote and beautiful places to the average citizen. Elliot started out his young athletic career as a professional cyclist, possibly influenced by the family business, Bodfish Bicycles and Quiet Mountain Sports, in Chester. Later, Elliot expanded including "unique to the Sierra" sports such as Class V kayaking, climbing, skiing and "adventuring" in general. Elliot's dreams have been well received with his production efforts landing in the Wild and Scenic film festival and other forums with worldwide appeal. "Many of our projects bring awareness to environmental issues," said Elliot, "We advocate to protect places wild and free."
