Fall has arrived and backyard functions are once again great ideas with the sizzling temperatures a thing of the past until next year. October offered not one, but two opportunities for our club people to get together in the open-air surroundings to enjoy food and games and just plain fun.
Don and Connie Ceo opened their home to the club on October 13th for the third edition of Lasagna Night and social get together. Corvette people from near and far rolled in beginning at 4 PM and found their way to the Ceo’s splendid back yard to sample the refreshments and marvel at Don’s newly upgraded Corvette Bar.
There are some terrific cooks in our club as we all know from our potluck activities. The spread had plenty of main course entrees to compliment the lasagna and of course, there was no shortage of desserts either.
As the day transitioned into evening, the focus of the affair changed as well with many digging into their pockets and purses for some loose change to try their chances at the card tables.
Just a week later on October 20th, Ed and Deana Shaver put out the welcome mat for club members to enjoy an equally fun afternoon, and into evening get together, in their equally inviting yard and patio. More potluck offerings and plenty of desserts were available with the inevitable Acey-Deucy and Bunco games that were on hand to make or break the players.
Once again, there was an abundance of socializing and time to relax in another open-air get together.
Some say we “drive and eat”, but what we really do best is enjoy spending time with each other. Corvettes are wonderful, but not the only thing we have in common.
Many thanks to the Ceos and the Shavers for their hospitality and preparation for TWO weekend events this month. With the change of seasons upon us, we might miss the back-yard venues for a while, but we all hope they’ll be back!
