April 2016 - Newsletter


The parking lot at the Tilted Kilt was chock full of Corvettes – at least 30 of them!  What a turnout we had for the April dinner meeting!  It was great fun, and the food was terrific, as was the service. 



With 52 members present we were a lively bunch.  The bidding was spirited for the Corvette jacket donated by Jim Lucas.  The lucky bidder was Kevin Chamberlain and he looked might classy in his “new” jacket!  In addition, the club’s coffers are now richer by $100.00!


Don DiMonda spoke about Race Services, Inc. at Watkins Glen, which provides opportunities for individuals to volunteer their services during races at the Glen.  You can obtain more information at: www.rsiwgi.com


Darren Smith is again accepting orders for club windshield banners.  For more information and pricing you may contact Darren.
