For The President:
Soaring temperatures and events mark a very busy summer for our Nashville Corvette Club. From cruises back to the Corvette Mother Ship(NCM) for the Corvette Homecoming to trips to Florence, AL for music and fun were just the beginning. We will also provide the majority of the cars needed for the Medal of Honor Parade on August 8th through downtown Nashville. To date, 49 NCC cars have signed on for the parade. This will be a spectacular event and we are truly honored to be a part of this event. Many of our members have the annual migration to the National Council of Corvettes Convention on their radar scopes this year experience The Poconos (Enchanted Mountains) "honeymoon capitol" with competition and fellowship at the parties and tours of the eastern megalopolis. The first Southeast Region Autocross is Labor Day weekend at Oakridge(Pellissippi College) and while your there be sure to visit the American Museum of Science and Energy or maybe see the UT Knoxville Arboretum. Please donít forget to support our annual Touch of Gold Car Show on September 19th. The Touch of Gold Show will have 50 car classifications along with 6 special awards. Each car class will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy and is always well attended. It is our single largest fund raiser of the year with all proceeds going to our NCC Charities.
Our membership has now grown to over 225 and this growth is a very encouraging sign for our future. They bring fresh new ideas and perspectives which will benefit the NCC. Welcome and congratulations to all our new members.
On June 20th,
thirty six members of the Nashville Corvette
Club joined approximately 300 other
passengers on a wine trip to the Del Monaco
Winery. Our source of transportation was
not our shiny fiberglass beauties but eleven
1950ís vintage passenger cars on the
Tennessee Central Antique Train. Our
conductor was a very colorful gentleman who
kept us laughing the entire day. The day
conjured up memories of simpler times with
gentlemen dressed in their suites and hats,
the ladies in their finery of full dress and
a proper hat while junior played with his
fire truck and sis played with her doll.
We started sampling
wine at 8:45 am while being informed of the
finer characteristics of each wine we
sampled all of which were available for
purchase at Del Monacoís. After lunch and a
tour of the vineyard, we re-boarded the
train for the return trip home with our
dayís purchases. Dale Mexic got us involved
in a lively card game (he won all the card
games Ė anybody else suspicious here?).
We were joined by several passengers from another car, but they were sampling or consuming their entire dayís purchases while spilling large amounts of their product at the same time. They probably donít remember the return trip home or the card game, but they added a lot of interest to the afternoon and evening. We hope they got home safely. Another fun NCC outing! I hope you all enjoy a safe and joyous July 4th and celebrate with family and friends!Dave Logue
