HAPPY SPRING, EVERYONE!!!

 

It’s almost time to get those Corvettes out of “mothballs” and out on the road!

 

We had a wonderful turnout at Art’s Jug for pizza and salad.  There were 45 of us!  As usual, Art’s did a great job and as far as I know, no one went away hungry.

 

During the meeting, Ron Tepfenhart shared his “Passion for Corvettes” story.  What a great tale he wove – we were all enthralled - especially the part about finding a packet of marijuana hidden in the door of the previously owned Vette he bought!

 

Tom gave a report on the bus trip to Turning Stone Casino.  This year we were unable to fill even one bus, so our net profit was only $326.00.  In past years we have netted well over $1,000.00.  However, those who went said they had a good time and want to go again.

 

Due to the lower than usual participation for the event, alternatives are being considered for next year.  We are looking into perhaps combining the casino trip with shopping and winery tours near Waterloo.

 

Also, in an effort to boost revenue, several members are in favor of conducting 50/50 raffles periodically.

We have confirmed reservations at the track at Watkins Glen on Sunday, May 21st.  Lunch reservations have been made at Seneca Harbor Station in downtown Watkins Glen.  Wendy Hall, of the Capital Corvette Club of Ottawa, will be planning a scenic route from the Thruway to the Glen.  She will also be making reservations for dinner Sunday evening at a restaurant near Syracuse.  All the details will be sent out closer to the date.  Betsy Jacobs is the contact person.

 

We still hope to plan a destination cruise some-time in May (or June) to the Tailwater Lodge in Altmar. 

 

Our April dinner meeting will be Wednesday, April 26th, at The Anchor in Sackets Harbor.
