President’s Message

First I would like to welcome our new members Jim Hinds and Mary Lou Peterson. Jim has a 2013. His first Corvette.

The proposed amendment to our constitution was ratified by unanimous vote at the July 27th meeting. The club will be able to apply for a class B raffle license to raise money for the Boy and Girls club at next year’s car show.

Speaking of the car show; it went much smoother this year than last year. It seemed like much less work. There were slightly fewer cars; however Don Brenengen felt that the quality of the cars was higher than last year. Rudy’s cruise night was also the best that we have had. Nice weather really helps out. Big thanks to Tom Stibbe for overseeing the event.

Our upcoming events include the Tudor Series race at Elkhart Lake August 7-10th, this is really not a club event but several of us are going. We also see quite a few people from the Chippewa Valley Corvette Club. We have a contact in the Chippewa Valley Corvette club that may be able to get free tickets. I already have mine so I am out of luck. If you are interested in trying to get free tickets contact Tom Stibbe or myself and we will hook you up. It has been hit or miss in the past for freebees. August ride n’ dine will be hosted by John and Sue Gesslein on August 16th I don’t have any further information yet. August 24th is the club monthly meeting, which will be a pot luck at Sharon and Chuck Zimmers house. You should have received an informational email already. August 27th-September 1st will be our trip to the National Corvette Museum for the 20th anniversary Corvette Caravan.
