September 2015 - Newsletter


Mother Nature again smiled on us for our cruise to Kingston for our dinner meeting at Ramekins.  What a beautiful night!  One of our more “timid” members (spelled T-O-M) complained about the traffic in Kingston.


It was great to see so many of our Canadian members in attendance.  In fact they out-numbered us Yankees by quite a margin!  We all enjoyed the great food though!



By unanimous vote, all current officers were reelected.


At the Clayton Car Show in September, Kathy Cheney won an award for the Best Muscle Car.

Congratulations, Kathy!

Our ice cream cruise to the Gals’ Place on September 2nd set a new record – 16 Vettes!

(plus one Audi and one Hellcat!)  We would have had 17 Vettes, but Karyl Irvine didn’t read her e-mail in time … smile.


Tom hopes to organize a fall cruise, maybe for ice cream, inviting his friend, Jeff Weldon, to bring his camera-equipped drone to film us.


The trip to Lake George with the Capital Corvette Club of Ottawa (C.C.C.) was once again blessed with gorgeous weather.  Six cars from NNYCC joined the festivities.  Marty Hallam drove his Mercedes, as he has sold his Corvette, and has yet to purchase another.  The drive through the mountains on Friday was beautiful, even though the leaves didn’t present much color yet. 


Bob and Gloria Steele of C.C.C. organized a fun Saturday morning for us.  It started with a scenic road tour to Saratoga Springs.  There we toured the Antique Auto Museum, and attended a Hemmings Concourse d’ Elegance Car Show on the grounds of the Museum.  From there, we all had lunch at a nice little Italian restaurant called Mama Mia’s.  The rest of the weekend was ours to do as we wished.  Most of us made a mad dash for the outlet stores!  As in previous years, we had a wonderful time. 




The October dinner meeting will be held, Wednesday, October 28th, at Wise Guys in Chaumont.  You must pre-select from a limited menu.  All details will go out in a separate e-mail.  Betsy Jacobs is the contact person.
