Phil and Mark announced that they have received approval for an autocross at Crowder College . The cost should be around $250. They are thinking about holding an autocross there late summer.
Abbi talked about possibly doing “trophy winner” t-shirts next year for autocross rather than giving away the trophies. She contacted several companies that said they could possibly sponsor the shirts. The idea is to get enough sponsors to cover the cost of the shirts. In the mean time she was given 5 $10 vouchers from Zip Corvettes. We will use those as door prizes at the next several meetings.
A motion was brought to the floor by Mark Roundtree to give Phil and Debi Rankin $35 out of the proceeds of the autocross to cover the expense of hauling the trailer. The motion was seconded by Ken Block and majority was in favor.
Wayne Burks talked about having food at the Autocross. The decision was made to start out simple at the June autocross and see how it goes over.
Tell us about your first Corvette…..
Bill Allred has a 64 that is currently in the body shop! He and his wife, Alisha brought their Camaro and Monte Carlo to a car show and parked right next to this corvette that had a for sale sign in the window. He immediately told the guy he was interested and told him he would bring him the money in the morning. He met the guy the next afternoon and bought the car! It’s been theirs ever since.
Door Prize Winners – Larry Lankford, Bill Allred, Abbi Sinclair, and Richard Sink
