Spring is in the air!  Can you smell it?  No?

Are you still buried under snow and ice?  Wait for it ---- Spring’s coming ---- maybe NEXT month!


Although a few of us were disappointed in the slow service at the Tilted Kilt, most of the 40 members present enjoyed their meals.  We had a bit more room in the main dining area, and our speaker system worked well in spite of the noise of the peripheral crowd.  Manager, Terry Smith, did a presentation on his new business, Rust/Check of Watertown.  It was quite interesting.


New Members:

Chuck & Gail Vogt – 2003 50th Anniv.conv.


It’s official --- Stuart Price has ordered his new C-7 – a Crystal Red Convertible!


A fun time was had by all on the Casino trip.  The buses were almost full, even after a few last minute cancellations.  The Club netted $1,600.50 in our biggest fund-raiser of the year.  Rumor has it, that Tom Cheney won again!  How can one person be so lucky?




Member, Dianne Park, sent me the following link that she found on Facebook.  If you haven’t seen it before, you should check it out.  You can click on each of the pictures and see the information on each Corvette.
