…a word from our President!
Well summer is slipping away, and the
mystery tour is coming up. I hope all of
you will enjoy it. Please bring coats and
swim suits and if you have chains I
would bring them to. There will be lots
of food and drinks. Should not eat for at
least two days before we leave. And I
know most of you are getting older so
you should be prepared and get a lot of
sleep before the trip.
The first day will be a long drive. But we
have at least six potty stops. I hope that
will be enough? If not just let me know.
If you have snow boots bring them
because of the altitude it will get very
cold. If there any questions please don't
call. You have already paid your trip fee
and there are no refunds!!!!
Mystery Trip coming up! – Which way do we go?
VP of Public Relations, Charlotte Renna,
welcomed the following guests, Jim &
Peggy Bandy sponsored by the Dukes and
Bob & Gina Estrada sponsored by Diane
Tjerrild. Birthdays added up to 369 years
and 3 couples added up to 116 years of

made a motion to accept the minutes as

Dick Johnson gave the Treasurer’s report.
Our account continues to be in great shape.
With the monies coming in for the Mystery

be kept busy balancing it all. The raffle keeps
amazing us. Tonight it brought in $413.00.
Charlotte Renna was the lucky winner of the
new CB and installation by Red Monkey,
donated by the Dukes. Who will win the 2nd
CB? Find out in September. Lynn Henenfent
started her vacation early by winning one of
the $50 bills. Can you say Casino!

For the second month in a row, Chuck
Laningham could not find one badge
violator. Way to go Club. Debbie Garrison
was not present for the Sunshine Report
so Charlotte stepped up and did a round
robin of club members. We found out
Dave Dawson fell and broke his hip and
Lori Garcia has been diagnosed with
Leukemia and is headed to Stanford.
Please keep both in your prayers. Happy
Cruising to a gaggle of our members, as
they head to Alaska. Charlie and Kim ask
you to please keep the rooms clean as
they sail to Alaska with their family

2018 Corvette ZR1 Spied
Sounding Like it has a Supercharger
The next great American sports car has been spied making some serious
noise. Spy photographers have caught the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
testing a few times, and at one point, the prototype had to have its exhausts
modified because it was too loud for the Nurburgring.
There have been plenty of rumors about what will power the Corvette
ZR1, but it doesn’t seem like it will be a twin-turbo V8. Instead, Chevy is
likely using a more powerful and supercharged version of the 6.2-liter
LT4 V8 engine that is also used in the Corvette Z06, Cadillac CTS-V, and
Camaro ZL1. You’ll also want to make sure you have your speakers turned
up – the Corvette ZR1 sounds and looks like it’s ready to take a
Nurburgring record or two.
