Autos and motorcycles lining both sides of Division Street in Odessa (closed off to traffic for this event) are a popular draw at Spring Fling.

Spring Fling drew a lively crowd this year, as quilt lovers, car lovers, horseshoe lovers, baseball fans, yard sale aficianados and many others visited the town last weekend.

We are providing a partial rundown of the activities this week, while still gathering information for a more comprehensive report next week.

The car and bike show drew 28 cars and five bikes. The winners were:

1st place: 1934 Ford Sedan owned by Dennis Marchetti of Moses Lake.

2nd place: 1970 Plymouth Barracuda owned by Randy McCart of Quincy.

3rd place: 1969 Nova SS owned by Bob Cole of Odessa.

Bike winners were:

1st place: Harley Davidson owned by Floyd Burke of Spokane.

2nd place 2007 Night Train owned by Dan Singleton of Ephrata.

3rd place: 1989 Yamaha Razz owned by Tammy Tokas of Odessa.

The quilt show at the high school gym had more than 250 quilts on display. Vendors of quilting supplies were also on hand to provide another point of interest at the show. Demonstrations of quilting techniques were held throughout the two-day show.

The "Quilters' Cafe" was set up in the gym's foyer to serve sandwiches, beverages and pie for those who were unable to leave the venue for any length of time. Master pie maker Charlene Kagele supplied this year's homemade pies.

Yard sales also did well, as several of those who held them will attest. The indoor sale at the Old Town Hall was successful beyond the wildest dreams of the members of the Old Town Hall Rejuvenation Society. Several lightly used pieces of furniture had been donated and were sold early Friday as soon as the hall opened at 9 a.m. to a lineup of people outside.

A more comprehensive report on other events about town will follow next week.
