OLD BUSINESS:

Old Business:  Still have Club window clings.  Sue K is working on getting our Club Logo onto her machines so she can do any custom work on her various items:  shirts, chair liners, dining apparel (bibs!), aprons and most any clothing or cloth items.


 

Repair list – John had no new items or issues to report.  Jack Halbleib noted that Andy Field is still doing custom alignment for Corvettes, but is backed up for now.

Getting your Corvette’s settings from factory (aggressive) to realistic will triple the life of your front tires while not substantially affecting handling.  Skap is looking for brake service. Ideas discussed (Eric Peterson Automotive) or buy your own parts and find an installer?  


 

Member Website: (www.chippewavalleycorvettes.com) and Facebook.  Tom Rohrer is our webmaster and will take pictures of members and their rides when weather permits.  We limit any personal information posted on Facebook or our website!


 

SPONSORSHIP UPDATE:  We had a great tour of GUNDERSON CHEV/FORD Dealership last month.  We still need to receive their 2019 support check. Jeane and Sue will reach out to confirm our understanding of their promised support.


 

NEW BUSINESS:

Ridemaster Report:  Skap put together a great impromptu run with a response of 13 Corvettes, beautiful weather and a nice ride around the Augusta area with great food at Black Bear!   Thanks Skap!
