Sunday, May 28, 2006
Budweiser Brewery; Merrimack, NH

Gate City is my home club.
The first Corvette weekend event that Sandy & I ever attended was
Gate City's "OctoberVettes" in 1978, the year after
we got our first Vette. We rarely missed one after that...

For the past 4 years, this club has held a FundRaiser for us in a hangar at the Nashua, NH airport. In that time they have raised almost $25,000 for the American Cancer Society and Corvettes Conquer Cancer!

Leaving Maine.

Check the HUD...

You couldn't ask for a much better day or a nicer place for a Corvette show!

My daughter Christy and her husband Nils stopped by the show while taking advantage of the great weather to go for a bike ride. This was the first time I had seen her new (and first!) motorcycle. Way to go, Christy! She is the third generation in my family to ride motorcycles: My dad in the 30s, me in the 50s & 60s, and now her. I would have taken it for a spin, but had to go help judge a couple classes of C5/C6. We'll do it yet...

The traditional after-the-show, job-well-done pizza party at Jim Eckes' home on a nearby island. Yes, it would appear that all Corvettes ARE red, even the Avalanche model!

Thanks to Gate City, we were able to send
$335.00
to the American Cancer Society's Bedford, NH office
(where Christy worked in a previous career).

Back home again, still stuffed, with daylight to spare.
