Once again, as I man the keyboard I wonder how your past month has gone. Personally, all seems to be OK, but I sense a feeling of confusion here and there. It makes me recall the nonsense of Abbott and Costello on one of their routines. Abbott: Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third…Costello: That’s what I want to find out. Abbott: That’s what I said, Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Knows on third. Is there anyone who knows what is going on? I am grateful for the reality that our club provides several times a month when we get together and enjoy some stability that seems to be absent from other areas of life. I am thankful we can still employ common sense in at least one aspect of life with the enjoyment of our Corvette bond.
On September 2nd, we held our second General Meeting in the Vincenzo Room at Santa Clarita Lanes. I felt we had a great turnout with 53 in attendance and plenty of room for more. The board unanimously recommended continuing to hold our general meetings at Santa Clarita Lanes and the response from the membership was also favorable. At the September meeting, a vote was taken to update our Standing Rules to name the location as our designated meeting spot. The staff at Santa Clarita Lanes is equally happy to have us meet at their location and is looking forward to making things even more comfortable for our monthly meetings.
Our Activities team put together a run to Simi Valley and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for September 11. The turnout was outstanding for the run featuring the special FBI exhibit at the library. Lunch followed at the Junkyard Café in Simi. September 11 also was an opportunity for others to attend or participate in the Patriot Day Car Show and a day of remembrance to honor the first responders and civilians who lost their lives on 9/11. Congressman Mike Garcia spoke and aircraft performed a flyover show of respect for the fallen heroes.
Several of our members additionally made the trip to Prescott, AZ to attend the 2021 Prescott Vette Sette Corvette Car Show and get together with ex-patriot SCVCC members over the weekend of 23 to 25 September. Just in case something more was needed in the way of events in September, our friends at Bunnin Chevrolet Fillmore invited our club to participate in Vintage Car Fest on September 18th, with the promise of food, music, and fun!
These are the reasons we join a club and could care less about Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Knows on third.
The newsletter was again the product of the substitute editor and still in need of the help of the membership. When our editor returns, HELP HIM OUT with some contributions…please!
Be sure to mark October 7 on your calendar and join us at Santa Clarita Lanes for our next meeting. The meeting begins at 7:30, so come earlier if you can to catch-up with you Corvette friends.
See you there!
