President’s Message

Hello Fellow RCC Members,

It is hard to believe summer has arrived and it is July 1st. July is a very exciting month for our club. On Wednesday July 9th we will be hosting the drive-in car show at Rudy’s in downtown La Crosse. Bring your corvette and show it off.

On Saturday July 13th we will host our annual car show at Brenengen’s in West Salem. If you have not volunteered yet and want to call Mark S. Whether you’re volunteering or not bring your corvette to show your support.

Dennis S. has been working with Barry Bloomquist to schedule a day when he will brings his latest custom car, a 1963 Impala SS, for the club to see. We will use this as our annual Tech Talk event with Brenengen. It will be most likely the end of July. I will send out a special communication when the date and time is set. Barry’s last custom car, a 1964 Corvette, was a hit at SEMA 2015 and won the Builder’s Choice award.

Look forward to see all of you at Rudy’s and the car show.

Ron Callender
RCC President
