As a former college basketball coach, I think teamwork is a thing of beauty.
At last month’s Southern Oregon Rod and Custom Show, Rogue Valley Corvettes showed as much teamwork as the great UCLA Dynasty teams of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Coach Wooden would have been proud.
The Rod and Custom Show is the region’s grandest indoor car event, and RVC’s drive-in theater-themed club display was a tremendous hit. Many of our club members teamed up to make it happen.
Morris and Virginia loaned us our theater ‘screen’ – whom else has a spare 65” TV? Dave Stickland’s Red Elk Enterprises paid for the black back-drop that gave us the dark-of-night look we needed. John Bucchino created speakers for each car that were outstanding. Car owners Lori Hale, Greg Danner, Kent and Barbara Colahan and the Bucchinos brought their cars to the event. And on the days we had to set-up and tear-down the display, we had almost more help than we needed. Besides the Bucchinos and Danner, we also had Ron Seering, Dave Guches, Morris and Stickland helping out.
We didn’t set any picks or trap at the wings, but it was a thing of beauty.
Our friends at Rogue Valley Street Rods appreciated our club display and all of our members who volunteered their time to assist with the show. RVC’s dedication to our Community shined brightly. I, for one, talked to hundreds of people who stopped by who were impressed not only with our cars and our display, but with our contributions to Skills USA.
To those of you who provided cars – thank-you. And to those of you who made the display possible – thank-you. And to those who volunteered your most precious resource – time – I thank-you, too.
Spring is in the air. Warmer temperatures and my sinuses prove that.
As the weather gets (hopefully) progressively better, let’s keep our eyes and ears open for windows of opportunity – chances for spur-of-the-moment Corvette cruises that can be pulled off with a few phone calls and emails. Anyone can initiate a spur-of-the-moment cruise. Anyone – even you.
On March 17th, RVC Events Czar Marilyn Pack will lead our band of merry Corvette enthusiasts to Wolf Creek for a lunch-run. I hope you and your Corvette will join us.
