Presidents Letter July 2019
Hello Rogue Valley Corvette Club Members and friends.
Difficult to believe but the year is past its half waypoint. We can look back at a very active first half and look forward to many exciting things in store for the second half of the year.
Attendance for our regular club meetings has been fantastic with nearly 50 members joining up a number of times. We have tried to keep our meetings light hearted and brief as well as informative with Corvette news, past, present, and future.
Everyone is excited and anxious to view the new mid engine C8 premiering on July 18 in Los Angeles. Rumor has more than one member planning to step up to the new model.
One of our goals early in the year was to get individual members to “host” an event that was something that that member felt was special to them. Those events were definitely some of our best and most appreciated outings. We are hoping for even more of that type of participation in the future so new ideas are tried and enjoyed.
The first half had many highlights including several last Friday lunch events, Comedy Night dinner at Chadwicks, various winery trips, dinner at the Historic Prospect Hotel, road trips to Steamboat Inn and Howard Prairie Lake, multiple car show events, and one of the favorites, the Central Point 4th of July Parade.
Coming up will be a caravan to Sporthaven Marina in Brookings, a two-night caravan to Cascade Lakes Byway with stops at Sunriver, Bend, Crescent Lake, Eugene, and Kings Estate Winery. Another caravan to Mills Casino on the coast via Hwy 138 is planed for September. Don’t forget our club will be sending a contingent of cars along with the National Corvette Caravan to Bowling Green, Kentucky. Add to those plans are additional last Friday lunches, more winery trips, and our Christmas party at the Rogue Regency in December.
For those who have not already done so, go to our Facebook Page, “ Rogue Valley Corvette Club” then “like” the page so you can get reminders of upcoming events and photos of past activities. Please contact me if you are unfamiliar with the Facebook platform and have questions and/or concerns.
We want to welcome new members Rich and Anne Riddle of Talent and Bruce and Marilyn Jensen of Medford. Please introduce yourselves to them at the next event.
Remember to “Save the Wave”
