Hello Rogue Valley Corvette members and prospective members. It’s hard to believe we are well into the second quarter of 2017 already. If you haven’t done so yet, it is time to uncover those Corvettes and wax and shine those beauties up.
January through April was loaded with many great events. Regular meetings were held at Wild River Brewery and Vinny’s in Medford. Taprock in Grants Pass hosted our March meeting and Mac’s Diner in Shady Cove hosted the April meeting.
Less formal gatherings for the First Friday Dinners included Elmer’s in Grants Pass, Red Lobster in Medford, Miguel’s in Eagle Point, and finally a large turnout of 27 members at the Centennial Golf Course in Medford.
Many members joined together at Kriselle Winery in White City and for lunch at Yummy Yans in Medford.
Four cars caravanned to Redding CA for the Kool April Nights Car show and found the weather anything but cool as temperatures approached 90 degrees. Club members joined Corvette Set for dinner and to watch the Friday night Cruise.
Upcoming in May and June, we will caravan to Ron and Carolyn’s home in Klamath Falls for our May meeting and the ever-popular trip to Pack’s cabin in Azalea for the June meeting.
Additional events for May and June to look forward to include the North Valley High School car show in Merlin, the Centennial Golf Course car show in Medford on Saturday May 27th, Memorial Day weekend. The First Friday Dinner for June will be at Wild River Brewery in Grants Pass.
Also June 17, Fathers Day Weekend, is the Medford Cruise Car Show and Cruise. We are hoping for large member participation for both the Show and Shine and for our traditional role for security for the Classic Car Cruise on Saturday night.
Eight cars have already signed up for Corvettes at Lake Tahoe on the weekend of June 22-25.
Rounding out June will be a lunch in Jacksonville and the Kruse of Klamath in Klamath Falls.
John Warren, Chairman of our Fall Classic Car show scheduled for September 9 at the Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville, has started the engines and is revving up for our ever popular event that benefits Skills USA. Over 200 classic cars are expected to strut their beauty and power at our annual car show.
In other news Ron Seering is taking a couple of months leave for personal reasons and John Doelger will be acting President until he returns, and Kerry Provancha will fill in for John as Vice President. Also Jean Asher needs to step aside as RVC Secretary due to Gary’s health concerns. Sharron Warren will be the Secretary with assistance from Marilyn Pack.
We are certainly looking forward to an exciting Summer and Fall for Corvettes and camaraderie.
