RIDEMASTER REPORT:

Thanks to Lewis for a great ride with 8 Club Corvettes last Saturday taking back roads from Eau Claire to Winona, lunch at Jefferson’s but skipped the ice cream as the storm clouds yielded heavy rain on the way home.  Still a great time! THANKS!


 

Chetek Show:  about a dozen CVCC Members helped out the Vintage Voyagers.  Cars were down (about 175 vs 300) as it was Back to Fifties Weekend as well as a threatening weather forecast.   Still a very nice show, good time and NO RAIN!!!


 

Discussion regarding creating some business cards and/or brochures that members can provide to potential members.  Jerry Salow still has some old cards and Pete Klug presented a brochure. Both need updating.
