June 2015 - Newsletter


The record wasn’t broken, but we did have 60 members and guests at the Admiral’s Inn.  The weather was gorgeous and we lined the streets of Alex Bay with our Vettes … impressive!


As always, Mike, owner of Admiral’s Inn, treated us like family.  We were well looked after, waited on like royalty, and had a great time!



Guest, Roger Preston, spoke about his Florida business of fine tuning Corvettes for the track and for the street.  He and his son, Jeremy, are visiting in Henderson for a couple of weeks, 6/26-7/8, and they have offered to tune any club member’s Vette for $299.00.  If there are more than five cars, the cost will be $200.00 each.  You may contact Roger at: 315-938-5833 or motorsportsline@aol.com  If you wish to check out their website: www.hpsalesflorida.com


Bill Doull was the winner of a Hot Wheels model Corvette, donated by Stuart Smith.  Debbie Grey won the drawing for a hat donated by Admiral’s Inn.

Tom Cheney has offered to look into getting us some track time at the Evans Mill Speedway.  We might go for ice cream afterwards, as we haven’t managed to work in an ice cream cruise yet this summer.


Also on the agenda, is our annual breakfast at Tin Pan Galley.  Tom has also volunteered to make those arrangements.  The date is yet to be determined.  We’ll keep you informed.
