Corvettes on the Bay 2018
Pacific Coast Corvette’s annual Corvette Car Show is always one of the top events to attend and this year was no exception. RVC was represented by a group of 5 returning attendees. We were more than pleased to see the sun, breathe the fresh air and feel the cool breeze. The drive from Medford was enjoyable – not too much traffic and hwy 42 allowed us to cruise along Corvette Style.
Friday night was the usual barbeque held at Bastendorff State Park. The PCC Members hosted the meal filled with hot dogs, hamburgers, lots of salads and of course their yummy homemade desserts. (One really needs to start at the dessert table.) This year the weather was kind to us; typically it is cold and windy and sometimes foggy not this time. We had sunshine, a cool breeze and best of all – no smoke. Also it was great to see some old friends from around the Pacific Northwest.
As customary, the Car Show was held at Ken Ware Chevrolet in North Bend. Ken and his wife Joy are great sponsors to the club and are always involved in the event. This year Ken did the barbequing, Joy served the desserts and they both were involved in the Poker Run. Ah!! The Poker Run! It is one of the highlights to the event. They have us traveling all over the countryside and it is a good thing we had directions since at times we had no idea where we really were.
The Show had a number of outstanding Corvettes making it hard to choose the winners. Don and Sandy Silva won the “Earliest Entry” Award. AND our own DAVE GUCHES won the Best of Show with his beautiful Red C7 Grand Sport. Special Congrats to Dave.
We finished the weekend activity off by having dinner together at Brickstone Restaurant. Good food, wonderful service and great friends – a fun time for all.
President’s Letter August 2018
The 13th annual “Fall Classic” Car Show is scheduled for September 8th which is practically upon us now. This year’s show at Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville will be terrific as usual, however, it will require “all hands on deck” to make it the memorial event that it has become. Registration is 8:00 – 10:00 AM and the car show is from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Once again, we ask that car show participants do not leave the event until awards have been presented. Rogue Valley Corvettes will provide N95 particulate respirators and ice cold bottled water free of charge, but I have made an appeal to ”Mother Nature” for no smoke and less heat. I hope my prayer will be granted as the show must go on. North Valley High School Skills-USA will present the American Flag with a Color Guard at 10:00 AM. The National Anthem will be sung by the talented Dona Powers at that time and she will be accompanied by her daughter. RVC is Red, White, & Blue throughout and we ask that all hats be removed in respect for our country and flag. Steve Curry will be our Master of Ceremonies for this year’s event and he will present great music from the fifties and sixties. As many of you remember, Steve Curry, owner of Heritage Motors, was RVC’s original sponsor and helped us establish the “Fall Classic” in 2006.
Skills-USA students from North Valley and Eagle Point High Schools will be active again at this year’s event. Our local TV station, KTVL Channel 10, will be interviewing Rogue Valley Corvettes and presenting some of our members Corvettes at 6:00 AM on Friday, September 7th. That interview is expected to broadcast early that morning as they have been a strong supporter of RVC community efforts and charities. We anticipate that Rogue Valley Corvettes will present member’s Corvettes at this year’s Fall Classic as “host cars”, but they will not be judged for the event and will be so designated. All Corvettes are unique, but the C-7 Grand Sports and Z06’s are simply incredible super cars. RVC will only exhibit these vehicles if parking space is available at the event.
This year’s Fall Classic will have a new food vender, Sweet Tea Express, offering breakfast, coffee, hot dogs, and hamburgers. Papa Terall’s BBQ Catering will also be on site again this year with great food. In addition the Schoolhaus Brewhaus, a bit of Bavaria, will be providing German dining and adult beverages in the 1908 brick school house. You shouldn’t go hungry, or thirsty at the Fall Classic.
Any member’s good at “Rain Dancing” before the 13th annual Fall Classic? Come to think about it, I probably have more Indian blood than the rest of you and I know the chants learned at my reservation on Cow Creek.
