President’s Message

Hello Fellow RCC Members,

The first weekend in May was a beauty with warm temperatures, sunshine and a slight breeze. I hope all of you have your Corvette out for a nice ride.

Members had a fun meeting last weekend at the Conrad’s in Homer MN. Their house had a great view of the Mississippi and you could see how high the water level is.

Our next meeting will be back a Schmidtys but June and August will be at members’ homes.

Please keep an eye on the RCC schedule so that you can participate in as many member events as possible.

RCC President

Governor’s Report - May 2019

We are a bit more than a month away from our annual rally. Its hard to believe that it keeps trying to snow as the flowers are growing and the leaves are forming on the trees. I can ALMOST Guarantee that it won’t snow at the June Rally. This year we are departing from our Sponsor, Brenengen Chevrolet in West Salem, WI. We are planning on a beautiful ride through the hilly countryside. It won’t be too easy but it wouldn’t be any fun if it was too easy. June 8th will be sunny and pleasant high of 80 degrees. Drop the top and go for a ride. Hope to see you there.

Charlie Britten
RCC Governor
