The “beach ride” that was that was originally scheduled for May 30 is a fundraiser for the student union. Although the event did not go on last Saturday a gracious donation was still given.

The “beach ride is an event that will have several trucks to test drive on Duxbury beach. This will save time and money a potential buyer would spend transferring the trucks from the dealership to the beach. Even Sobran the coordinator of the “beach ride” event postponed it mainly because not enough trucks were going to be at the event mostly because of economy issues.   There was initially a lot of interest, he said, but he believes the event will be much more successful if it could offer twenty trucks instead of six. Some trucks that will be featured in August should be hybrids, a couple diesels, and a bunch of brand new 2010 models.
