Cabela's: Huntsville AL
September 17, 2016
Sadly, the day started out gloomy, and quickly
deteriorated to intermittent rain. Not to be deterred,
27 Corvettes showed up. Between the $ each car collected in their classes, the
Plinko raffle proceeds
and the 50/50 raffle, we managed to clear $2218
for the American Cancer Society!
Thanks go out to NuVintage
Corvettes and Madison Monogram
for providing the really classy trophies,
and to Great Lakes Trophies and
Engraving for providing the Dash Plaques (image above).
Also to Dana Forrester for donating one
of his fantastic watercolor prints.
The many members of the Vets
With Vettes and Corvette Owners club put in countless hours in the
planning and organizing of the show, beating the bushes for door prizes and the
actual running of
the show. My eternal thanks go out to them!

I was the last Vette in the parking lot after thanking the folks
at Cabela's, and my battery was dead!
The nice guy in that white Ford truck gave me a jump. He was a Harley Davidson
(Yes, I replaced the battery the following week.)
