President’s Message

Our March meeting had a great turn-out, we had 26 individuals in attendance – “Thank You”. With the current snow storm on April 2nd & 3rd most of your cars are still under their covers. My hope is to have some good weather for our “Ride & Dines” in April. The Zimmer’s will take on the first Ride & Dine on April 21st, this ride will run about one hour and twenty minutes. From a financial standpoint our RCC club is in good shape.

The ladies luncheons are going great, April 13th’s luncheon will be in Holmen at Jacqlon’s Café road with the great weather we are having. If anyone has ideas on our “Tech Talk” at Brenengen’s, please send them to me. I will call Don Brenengen to make sure we have a room to discuss what you want to discuss.

I will be holding a meeting of a small group in mid-June to organize the items that we need to discuss for the RCC car show. We hope many of you will be there for support as we normally have 125 cars to take care of in Don’s parking lot.      The show is set for Saturday July 14th.
     Britton Slowey is the new director of the “The West Salem Boy’s & Girl’s club”.
     Big Boar will be handle the lunch.

My goal continues to build up recruitment over the next two years to increase our membership and have more Corvette’s on the road.

RCC President
