Hot Times at the Grand Hotel
Leading up to the 2017 show date for Slamboree, show promoter Jimmie Broyles knew he had better come up with a plan to find more space for all the additional rides showing up for this event. Why? The members of Severed Ties decided this spot was the perfect location to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their club. Held on the weekend of August 5 and 6 at the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the heat from the sun was as hot as the spectacular rides that showed this year.
Through many years, Slamboree has been a top show in the Midwest, and this year it gained more than 200 extra show entries, putting the total attendance to over 600. Located about 30 miles east of Oklahoma City on Highway 40, the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort was an amazing showcase for everyone's custom car, truck, motorcycle, or semi. This year's turnout did not disappoint any automotive enthusiast in attendance. Hundreds of cars, trucks, and motorcycles were giving it their all to try to take home just one of the numerous trophies to be handed out.
Slamboree strives to help the less fortunate, and there was an abundance of toys donated to the Toys for Tots collection in addition to all of the custom rides. For more information to next year's show, visit www.thebigshowok.com.
