Unlike a lot of people I love summer in the

valley. Fresh fruit, golf, sitting by the pool,

Dodgers and driving the Vette. We have

some nice driving runs coming up. There is

the foothill run and lunch on May 16 put

on by Jim and Joan Kozera and the Ventura

run on July 24-26 put on by Andy and

Connie Anderson and Patrick and Patricia

Garrahan.

Also Pam Hansen is sponsoring the 8 th

Annual Word From Home Car Show to

show support for our troops on June 28 th .

We can use some more runs with driving

involved this summer so if you have a

destination within a days drive that

interests you put together a 1-3 day run

and off we go.

The planning for the President’s Mystery

Run is in full gear. The cut off for signing

up will be August 1 st and payment due by

the August general meeting. I’m still

working on the cost but it should come in

at around $650 per couple. I hear the

weather is really nice in Riverdale that

time of year.

About ten cars showed up for the Clovis

Rodeo Parade and although it was raining

there were a lot of people lining the

streets. Everyone (especially the young

kids and old guys) enjoyed the rumbling

engines and good looking Vettes.

The 2015 Club Picnic is history and once

again the many club members who came

had a great time. Thanks to the Kroecker

clan for all the help in getting set up and

for once again lets us use Kroeckerville.

What a neat place for an event like our

picnic. Thanks also to the Board

Members for arraigning everything.

Looks like a new CVC tradition has been

born.

Christmas Party and Hay Ride will be here

before you know it!

Hope you all are enjoying the great

weather.

‘In the Garage’ with Bob Marine

Corvettes at Kern County Raceway 4-18-15

Just thought I would send you this e-mail that Chuck Hall forwarded to me yesterday. It's

pics of the Kern County Raceway run that Chuck and I went to Sat. All I can say is that we

had a blast. Joining the Corvettes of Bakersfield gang all 70 cars was great. They were

great group of people and very happy we joined them. The fact that Chuck's personal friend

is the manager of the raceway helped us feel right at home. Plenty of corvette's, all years, all

series, and even a few new Z06's . Racing was pretty cool. They had 3 different races

featuring different classes of cars. VIP treatment for all the members and cars, from the

parade around the track, burnouts on the straightaway in front of the fans sitting in the

stands, to parking all the corvette's in an area just above the first turn with a view. If you

chose to you could have watched all the races from our cars. Like a Drive in theater. Way

cool ! Check the video out. We will definitely attend this event again. Bob Marine
