Cars, Kids Mix Just Fine At Annual Ottway Cruise-In

Attendees at the fourth annual Ottway Cruise-In mingle on Saturday. The event lasted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Dozens of classic and custom cars, trucks and even tractors were on the northern side of the county this weekend for the fourth annual Ottway Cruise-In, sponsored by the Ottway Ruritan Club.

And while Saturday's event was a chance for custom-car-lovers to come out and both view and showcase prized vehicles, most of the proceeds raised went to the club's Little League teams -- something organizer Doug Babb was very excited about.

"What we are here for is to support the Little League," said Babb, who coached one of the league's eight teams last season. The teams play at the field at 2435 Ottway Road, where the cruise-in took place.

According to Babb, while children who live in or close to Greeneville's city limits often have several places to go for fun and recreation, children who live in the county often don't have the same privilege.

And giving children in the area something positive to do with their time is a good thing, Babb said.

"I always call our Little League here a 'boys and girls club for the summer,'" Babb said Saturday morning, as classic vehicles of all kinds were rolling onto the grounds. "We've got kids here playing from four-years-old up to 12, 13 years-old."

As of roughly 10:30 a.m., 36 vehicles were registered at the cruise-in, with a $15 registration fee for those entering a vehicle.

Bingo, a corn hole tournament, the Doug Booker memorial horseshoe tournament, with proceeds going to the Third Judicial District Child Advocacy Center in Mosheim, cakewalks, door prizes and music from the Ridge Runners rounded out the day's events.

"In Greeneville, we've got the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA, but out in the county we don't have a lot," Babb said. "This is something for the county to give back to the kids."

Plans call for the cruise-in to be held the first weekend in October from now on, Babb said.
