Show and shine today to send Carson officers to D.C. memorial

A Show and Shine at Carson City Harley-Davidson today from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. will raise money to send Carson City Sheriff's Department officers to the National Peace Officer Memorial in Washington, D.C., next month.

Organizers Deputy Sal Acosta and Wayne Wheeler said trophies will be awarded in the following classifications: Off-Road 4X4, Best Truck, Best Classic, Best Muscle Car, Best Low Rider, Best Stock, Best Hot Rod, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Sound, Best Motorcycle, Best of Show, Pre 1940 and Best Import.

Competition entry fee is $20 per car per classification.

Winners will be selected by members of the Sheriff's Department, with Best in Show being picked by Sheriff Ken Furlong.

"Dos Amigos will provide food and Harley will provide wine and beer. We will have music and a jump house for the kids. It's a community event for the whole family to help send two of our motor officers to Washington for the National Peace Officer Memorial," said Acosta.

Acosta said this year is especially important because a Sacramento sheriff's officer killed in the line of duty will have his name added to the memorial.

Larry Canfield, 43, was killed Nov. 12 in an auto accident.

Acosta said that Canfield, along with several other officers from the Sacramento Sheriff's Office, had attended every Carson City Sheriff's Extreme Motor Officer Training in the past six years.

Roll-in time for participants begins at 6 a.m. Harley-Davidson is located at 2900 Research Way off College Parkway.
