Report from our President
Dear SCM Members,
As I mentioned in my previous letters, the stars have aligned for all of our events. Our first corvette cruise “The Spring Cruise” chaired by John and Elaine Garley is May 5th. I am anxious to get the car out and give it a wakeup call. I’m sure everyone is also feeling the urge to get the driving season started.
Diane and I recently returned from the Ron Fellows Corvette Owners Driving School. It was truly an exciting experience to drive the ZR1 on the track for 2 days. After leaving the school, I feel much more confident with the handling and performance of the car. Related to that, our club just made the deposit for the SCM Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) Driving School and are gearing up for our two drivers school events.
The SCM BIR Drivers School is an opportunity to get in touch with your driv- ing skills. Whether you’re a novice or experienced driver this is an event you don’t want to miss. This is such a good deal for the price which includes some classroom time, driving and braking exercises, and lots of track time. Very few of our members take advantage of this event so I want to encourage you to check it out. See the flyer on our website or get in touch with one of the event chairs if you have any questions.
As we close out this winter with a sigh of relief, I want to welcome back our friends that escaped to Florida and other warm places. We should be able to recognize them by their terrific suntan and accomplished golf swing. Looking forward to seeing a full house at the meetings.
Take care and drive safe when you get the car out on April 13th. Cheers.
Dave Benner

2019 Spring Cruise John Garley
Sunday, May 5, we are going to lake country. Not Crow Wing County (MN), nor Burnet County (WI). Rather two dozen named lakes between St Peter and Faribault. We depart at 10:00 from the Chaska Event Center/Chaska Curling Center on the northwest corner of MN 41 and County 61 (3210 Chaska Blvd). Best way to get there is; from I-494 & US 212 in Eden Prairie, drive west on US 212 for 9 1⁄2 miles. Exit MN 41, then turn left – south. If you need gas, Holiday is on the right at Engler, it’s about 80 miles to the next best refill location on the route. Two miles after the exit, turn right on Chaska Blvd/Co 61. Entrance to the Curling Center parking lot is one block later, on your right.
The Chaska/Curling Center opens at 10:00 am so there should be ample parking, but no shot for breakfast. For those who want to meet and eat prior to the ride, Cy’s Bar & Grill is a short block away.
At first the route will feel like déjà vu all over again for those who were on the 2017 Spring cruise, but not for long. We will drive through Carver, Belle Plaine, Blakely, Henderson, and Le Sueur to our first rest stop at a golf course overlooking Lake Emily. After that, it’s all lake views (no towns) until a brief (second) rest stop in Waterville. Lunch will be in Faribault.
Getting home is an hour-long drive on I-35 to I-494 in Bloomington. Looking forward to spring and getting back into our Corvettes.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2019
Presented by
Suburban Corvettes of Minnesota will have Two Driver School and Lapping Days at Brainerd International Raceway in 2019. These driver schools will provide you with the opportunity to develop your driving skills in the controlled environment of a closed circuit and then they can be used for normal street driving, autocrossing or racing. It’s also a chance for the experienced racer to get lots of track time.
Whether the sun shines or it rains, the Driver School and Lapping goes on. If the sun shines, it is a great time to practice the racing line, braking points or just different corner entry or exit points. If it rains, you will really learn handling techniques for adverse conditions.
There is classroom and braking exercises for the beginner, novice or semi-experienced driver. It is your chance to learn the basics and also how your car reacts to driver inputs. Ride with Driving Instructors and see how they handle their car. The Driving Instructors will ride with you and work with you to be more confident while you drive your car. You should take full advantage of the opportunity to use these Instructors and gain some of there knowledge.
Lunch is included with your registration. The Wheelie Bar will be open for lunch at 11:00 AM. We will not break for lunch, so you will need to eat when you can.
There will be a dinner on Sunday night at Arrowood Lodge at Brainerd Lakes for all drivers, instructors and other volunteers. The dinner starts at 6:30 PM. No reservations are required. We will be previewing the day at the track events. Great time to meet your instructor and other drivers/volunteers!
June 10, we will be running the 3 mile Donnybrook Track. Sept. 16, we will be running the 2.5 mile Competition Track. Come join the EXCITEMENT of the long, fast straight away.
Rooms are blocked for “Suburban Corvettes” ($79, 2 beds, 2people) at ARROWWOOD Lodge At Brainerd Lakes
6967 Lake Forest Road
Baxter, MN. 56401
877-687-5634, 218-822-5572
If you check on the cost of other driver schools or with other clubs, you will find that this is a very
inexpensive way to get up to 4 hours of track time per day. It is an exceptional value!
There is a limit of 60 drivers for each school. Be sure you sign up early so that you don’t miss the opportunity.
If you have any questions, call: Rick Ohland – (651) 206-8670, or E-mail: [email protected] Or: Jon Thompson – (763) 263-9587, or E-mail: [email protected]
Please check with your auto insurance, you may not be covered while on the track.
We hope you take this opportunity to enjoy and use “Minnesota’s Premier Motorsports Facility” – BRAINERD INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY.

This year’s winners are:

Best Overall Chili: 1. Classic Corvettes of MN; 2. Dick (Hoppy) Hopkins (North Country Corvettes); 3. TIE-Chris Antoine and Arlene Martin (CCOM) and TIE-Sandy Norgaard, Sandi Scott and Barb Dahlquist-The SCCM Banquet Committee
Many, many thanks to Classic Corvettes of MN, Corvettes of Minnesota, Minnesota Renegades, Suburban Corvettes of MN, David Kupka, Shawn and Jan Hanna for their monetary contributions. Thank you all so much for your generosity.
Much appreciation to our friends and sponsors who contributed prizes: Suburban Corvettes Fall Color Run (Terry & Joan Wiggington); Boos Performance (John Boos); Doug Rippie Motorsports(Todd Cleasby); Dave and Lu Kupka; Kiss Autobody and Restoration; Don Gettinger; Charley Hoffman; Scott Hegstrand; Riverside Sporting Gear (Jon & Marci Thompson); TPiS (Jim Hall), Paul Capeder, and Jan and Shawn Hanna.

This year we had our 7th year of aligning ourselves with our charity, Camp Anokijig through Dan Binks (Crew Chief) of the Pratt & Miller Corvette Racing Team. Through Raffle tickets sales and a silent auction of racing memorabilia from Pratt & Miller, we were able to donate $2,000.00 to our charity, Camp Anokijig. A huge thank you to Pratt & Miller for their generosity. And a special thank you to Dan Binks for taking time out of his busy racing schedule to help us.
Many thanks to Jimmy’s for renting us a banquet room, tables and outlets to plug in our crock pots. And let’s not forget that cash bar to help us cool down from some hot chili. Jimmy’s wait staff was, again, friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you Mary and the Crew at Jimmy’s, you are awesome.
Huge thanks to our professional and personable Chili Challenge volunteer team. Without these fine folks the event would not run like a clock! These people deserve creds: David and LuAnn Kupka; Brian and Vera Zenezek; Vern and Candy De Hoop; Linda Franke; Jack Strait; Jennifer Monson; Don Gettinger; Scott Hegstrand; Len & Sandy Geronomie; Sharon Koolmo and Bill Steinke. We had some terrific prizes this year. Jack Strait and Max Allers did an awesome job with the emcee and prize presentation. Big Fun!! Max, your good humor really helped the event. Jack your energy and focus kept us moving along at just the right pace (fast). We appreciate you both so much and thank you for making the event so much fun!! Finally, thanks to my wonderful wife Janet Hanna for all her decorating ideas, her constant organization and whipping me into shape. Jan we are so happy you are back with us in such good shape, you are an amazing person and an example for all of us (me especially).
This year we fed 135 people 12 different chili’s, gave away over 100 door prizes, held an awesome silent auction, awarded a Chili Challenge trophy and 9 cash prizes all in 3.5 hours. Wow! Superb job to all who helped this event continue its history of FUN!!! Thanks to everyone who attended, we hope YOU had fun and look forward to seeing you all next year for the 2020 Chili Challenge.
Sincerely, Shawn Hanna, Chairman 2019 All Corvette Chili Challenge
