…a word from our President!

Hi Corvetter’s:

Well another month has gone and

where did it go? We had the Halloween

party and had a great time I hope

everyone did. Lots of food and

friendship. Debbie took pictures, and

you all looked great. Char put a lot of

pictures on Facebook. Connie wanted

to play bingo but I thought that was for

old people!! But you know who won!!!!

The annual meeting is in Nov. We will be

voting for the new board. Dues will be

due by Nov. Meeting. I cannot believe a

new year is about to start. Skip came up

with the Idea to give a 1,000 dollars to a

local charity. And the board took a vote

at our last board meeting and agreed.

We will be taking a vote from the

members because the board can only

spend $200. without taking a vote from

the Members. Then we will decide what

charity to give to. Well that's all for now.

Your President,

Andy

Our Diane Hayes was in Las Vegas the weekend of the shooting with a girlfriend. They were in

Paris at the time the shooting took place but did not know what was going on. They announced

over the loud Speaker for everyone to pick up their money and go directly to their rooms and

stay there. They got on the elevator with a group of women that were hysterical, Diane told

them to calm down and pray. By the time they got to our floor they had calmed down. All the

hotels and casinos were in lockdown until they announced “All Clear” at 4 am. They woke up the

next morning and turned on the TV and saw all the devastating news. They had an early flight

out on Monday, so got dressed and went to the airport, but the plane was delayed for almost an

hour. They made it home safely, but all the while praying for all those involved and families of

the deceased. So sad.

Joyce sent me a note that our Ed Kroeker has been transferred from Horizon Rehab to private

home 3 blocks from their home. Hoping to get stronger and improve his walking. Joyce just had

her first immunotherapy treatment last Thursday with 5 more weeks.

Talked with Lupe Dawson yesterday to get an update on Dave, he’s had yet another setback, just

got home last Friday from the hospital once again. The blood thinner he is reacted with one of

the other medications he’s taking and he started losing blood. They took more tests while at the

hospital and fortunately everything with his heart is fine. They were going back to the Doctor

and hopefully they will a new blood thinner he will be able to take. He is very weak and both he

and Lupe have lost a lot of weight. Dave’s down to 170 lbs. Both of his sons have been very

supportive helping Lupe however they can. And they have nurses coming in every day to

monitor his progress. Lupe’s sister just flew in this past Sunday to lend her support to help Lupe

cooking and cleaning.

Please keep Dave and Lupe and Ed and Joyce in your prayers.

On a brighter note on October 12, Dick Johnson and Glenn Henderson drove to Pahrump,

Nevada and drove Corvettes for the next two days in the Ron Fellows performance driving

school at Spring Mountain Raceway. It was an incredible experience, at a first-rate facility. There

was classroom time followed by driving time to practice what we just learned in class. Then back

to class, then back to the track. It started at 8:00 AM each morning and finished at 4:00 PM each

evening. Everyone that likes to drive would get a lot out of this class. We came away knowing

we can handle our cars much better than when we arrived.

Lee and Holly Baumgarten will be on the RV road once again! November 1 st , they are headed to

Phoenix International Raceway for the NASCAR races. They will be there for two weeks as

campground hosts as well as attending the races. Then it's on to New Mexico to visit friends and

enjoy the Southwest!!! Your Sunshine Girl, Debbie G.


2019 CORVETTE EARLY PRODUCTION ANNOUNCED

NCM, October 12, 2017

Well, that was quick! Rumors have been confirmed that production of the 2018

Corvette will cease early for the model year. The last date to order a 2018 Corvette

is November 16, and the last week of production for the 2018 model year is the

week of January 22. The 2019 model year will begin rolling off the line the week of

January 29, 2018. Orders for the model start November 30. (whew we need a

calendar for all those dates!) Right now, planned volume for the 2018 Corvette is

just shy of 9,700 units, making it one of the shortest model years. No major changes

are coming for 2019 as models, colors and options from 2018 will carry over (sans

the Carbon 65 Edition). Less than 100 65 th Anniversary Carbon Editions are

remaining of the 650 cap for 2018. A new order guide for 2019 will be released on

Nov. 20. Sebring Orange (G26) can now be ordered, and a small ramp up of the new

hue begins the week of December 11 (in the new paint shop, we might add). But

what about the new paint shop? Production at Bowling Green Assembly starts back

up November 6, and at that time the ‘basics’ (Black, Arctic White, Torch Red,

Corvette Racing Yellow) will begin rolling through the state‐of‐the‐art paint shop.

Tintcoats will follow the basics at a later date (Admiral Blue, Blade Silver, Cyber

Matrix Gray, Long Beach Red, Sebring Orange and Watkins Glen Gray. As for the

quality of the new paint – we’re told customers will not be disappointed. Some

even tout the quality to be better than the crème de la crème Cadillac paint. And as

for a “C8” mid‐engine Corvette, no official word has been received announcing the

highly anticipated model. But it has been photographed quite a bit lately. Perhaps

it’s GM’s way of teasing us just a little bit! Next year’s Michelin NCM Bash will

certainly be colorful when GM takes the stage to present on 2018 and 2019… and

we know you’ll want to be there to ask questions and be in the know.

Ron Fellows Corvette Owners Performance

Driving School – Pahrump, NV

Wow!! What a great experience. Glenn Henderson and I

recently spent two days at the Corvette Owners School

(COS) at Spring Mountain Motor Sports. We didn’t even

know this was on our bucket list until we were there. Two

days with both classroom education and driving a 2.1 mile

race track. It was worth every penny – just see the smiles

on our faces.
