It’s July. 2022 is half gone, but like a cup, there is half remaining too. We are beginning a new club year, 2022 – 2023. Our club is also another year older as we are now in our 44th year. Even with the challenges we have all faced during the recent past, our club remains strong and is again moving forward.
We have concluded our club elections this past month and your board is eager to represent you and assure that the SCVCC remains vital and focused. The world and time we live in continues to hand us all challenges and the club is experiencing the same issues. Things are costing more. We all like nice things and your board will assure those remain. Does increases and co-pays will be discussed as prices continue to rise. We all know that drill every time we pump premium into our Corvettes.
June though was a great time to be a SCVCC member. We started the month with a road trip, which we have not experienced in many months. There was a great turnout for the Monterey Coast Corvette Cruise from June 2 to June 5. The final blast of cool weather before another hot summer was delightful. The Monterey Coast Corvette Club put on yet another splendid event and several of our members brought home trophies as well. We all looked great sporting our special clubwear designed for the trip too!
Our annual club picnic at Steckel Park on June 18 was additionally a fun time to caravan, socialize, play, and even eat. The weather was ideal, the barbecue was delicious, the raffle and games were fun, all with Joe Ramieri and his band providing music throughout the day. Thanks to our set-up team and to all attendees for again making this a special club day.
Our membership numbers remain high with virtually no one leaving our membership as we enter the new club year. Additionally, we are again adding new members almost monthly as interest in our club is evident throughout our community. I urge everyone to get to know all of the new members who have recently joined us and make them feel welcome.
Some are still holdouts in providing updated roster information with your renewals. Even one letter wrong in your email will cause information to not reach you. Please help us out by making sure all of your information is correct and up to date.
Your activities team continues to provide us with us with many opportunities for runs, gatherings, and events. You DO NOT have to be a board member to plan OR lead a run. Present your idea to Activities and we can follow YOU on a run too.
If you have not yet renewed your membership for the coming year, please do so soon.
Let’s bite the bullet and fuel up those Corvettes with the high priced fuel and roll. This is not the Prius club. Our Corvettes are made to be driven and seen. I am happy about the great interest in our SCV July 4th Parade and look forward to seeing you there!
