Report from our President

This is the first opportunity I have to say some-
thing as your new President, my first thought
when elected was “What have I gotten myself
into!” All kinds of wild thoughts were rolling
through my head - fear, joy, apprehension, will
I screw up, you name it. If you believe in signs,
November 19th was an important date for my family, so it must have been a
sign. I thought about all the things my friends and family have taught me over
the years and want to bring them into the mix, most are just common sense. A
team can accomplish more than an individual can. A team has more ideas and
resources than an individual will. I’m just one member of a team here, it’s our
club and what we accomplish we do together. Groups band together and accom-
plish great things. This is what we need to continue to do as a club. I believe
as a club by sharing our talents, resources and ideas we can accomplish more
than we can as individuals. I want us to be open to all opportunities on how to
improve our club, this is my goal for this year.

I hope everyone had a chance to get down to Saxe to see the C8 Corvette last
month. I can sum up my feelings in one word: “WOW”! I was very impressed
by the styling, fit and finish of the car. I’m sure there will be a lot of them sold
once they are released to production and anxiously wait to see what the new
owners feel about them once they are in the consumer hands.

Now that winter is “officially” here, the car is off the street for a few months but
not dormant. Winter is the time I try to get some of those repairs and fixes done
that I want to get taken care of but haven’t yet. A window switch fixed here; an
IAC valve replaced there: it all adds up. I try to get some of those things taken
care of that didn’t stop me from driving during the summer months but needed
to be attended to. I already have a couple of them taken care of but there’s still
more on my list to do. Even though I can’t take the car out, as each item is taken
care of, I remember that it’s another day closer to Spring and taking the car out
on some of our cruises. Biggest problems I have are I don’t have a lift, and boy
is it cold in an unheated garage.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and didn’t eat too much. I’d also
like to wish everyone an early Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here’s
wishing everyone all the best this coming year.

Countdown to the 50th

President’s Report – July 1981 (excerpts)

June features the two most successful activities ever hosted by
Suburban Corvettes. The first weekend of June SCCM displayed
27 Corvette from 1953 – 1981 we missed 1955 and 1980) at the
Southdale Shopping Center.* Crowd reaction to our profession-
al display was excellent; it featured our split rail, club banner,
and beautiful assortment of Stock Corvettes. The event was well
covered by the media, future club events were promoted, the club
treasury was enhanced and many members had an opportunity to
publically display their Corvettes.

The 3rd weekend in June, Suburban Corvettes hosted
“Schmidt-Corvette Weekend” at BIR. Despite rainy weather, it
was a super weekend. Out of state attendance rivaled local entries
with participants coming from Montana, North & South Dakota,
Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
In our first attempt at running this professional top notch racing
facility, all facets of the weekend operations ran smoothly. Small
problems were generally transparent to the participants and were
handled efficiently by the very supportive membership of SCCM.
Special thanks to …. ; the chiefs “of specialties”, Dave Vadnais –
Security, Steve Redlund – Staging.

July brings us the National Council of Corvette Clubs Convention
in Milwaukee. Over 2 dozen SCCM Corvettes will participate
in the week long festivities. Club participants are preparing their
Corvettes in anticipation of “Wisconsin Gold”.

*Southdale Center invited SCCM to put on the car show for their
25th Anniversary celebration.
