January 2015 - Newsletter


The New Year is already a month old, and I expect all you Corvette enthusiasts out there are just “chomping at the bit” to get those beauties out of storage and on the road!  Of course, those members who just happen to be “snow birds”, have been enjoying their Vettes all winter, while the rest of us are shoveling snow.


Meanwhile, we had a nice turnout for the first dinner meeting of the year at Maggie’s on the River.  The third floor was all ours, so we had lots of room and privacy.  What a nice way to start off the year – good food, good friends, good times!


Drawings were held for two Corvette items donated by Davidsons.  Fred Sovie won a beautiful Corvette hat and Jim Lucas won a Corvette shaped computer mouse.


New Members:

Bob Bach & Laurie Liechty – 2014 Grey Coupe

 Hey, Bob & Laurie – we have a special page on our website for pictures of members’ C-7’s.

Send us a photo of your new ride!

 Speaking of which, Dave & Lori Chase have just purchased a red 2015 and are having a blast driving it around Jekyll Island, Georgia!

 Our February dinner meeting is set for Wednesday, February 18th, at Art’s Jug in Watertown.  Please note this is the third Wednesday instead of the fourth, to accommodate our President and Treasurer’s schedules.  The cost is $15.00 per person including tax and tip, and includes all you can eat salad, pizza a soft drink.  Tom Cheney is the contact person:

 Plans are in place for our 8th Annual Casino trip to Turning Stone, Saturday, March 14th.  I will attach a flyer with all the details.  This is our major fund-raiser for the year.  Bring your friends and relatives and have a fun day.  We will have two buses with a total capacity of 79.  Again this year, Bob Freeman is donating the second bus and driver.  Thank you for your generosity, Bob!

FYI for some of our newer members:  North Country Custom on the Square in Watertown, can embroider our Club logo on many different kinds of clothing.  You can provide your own or purchase at the store.  Member Gary Hineman of Kingston, Ontario, also provides this service, which may be handier for our Canadian members.


Don’t forget to pay your dues for 2015.     It’s still only $20.00 – a real bargain!
