Report from our President

October 2020

We had the 50th Anniversary Cruise and Lunch
at Keller Golf Course and it was a great day.
The cruise was really nice and we had a lot of fall colors to enjoy. These
are not official numbers because it was like trying to herd cats keeping
track of the ones counted and those not, but I think we had around 40
cars on the cruise. In addition to a range of Vettes from C1’s to C8’s, we
even picked up a Mustang for the cruise part way. I didn’t see the driver
of the Mustang but I hope he (assume it was a he) enjoyed the drive. I
heard the count was 50 for the meal at Keller’s. Again, it was excellent
in my opinion.

Well Summer has turned into Fall as of 9/22 and I’ve gotten out the
sweatshirts already. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been working on
all the various around the house tasks that need to be done in the fall and
pre-Winter. It’s amazing how many things have to be taken care of.

In addition to all the things around the house that needs to be done, is the
need to prepare the cars to be put away for the Winter. The list isn’t long
but the doing it isn’t something I like to think about. It’s knowing that
snow and cold weather are coming along with having the car down for
several months that’s depressing. I wasn’t able to get the Vette out near
as much as I wanted this year mainly due to the Coronavirus threat and
isolating, it really put a cramp on things.

A note from the National Corvette Museum Oct 2020

I received a nice note from Suburban Corvettes member Arvin
Bothof. He had just returned from his 1st Corvette Museum Tour. 

Arvin signed up and went on the museums National Parks Tour, he
commented to me how well planned the event was. He stated that
the guides had organized a very professional tour and that all the
accommodations and tours were well executed for the whole group.

I mention this because CoVid-19 has halted a large number of
SCCMs events as well as many events across the country.

That was 2020 and I know a number of SCM members have put
very few miles on our cars this year and we all have probably lost a
few pounds not having any Hamburger, Fries and Catch-up events
to attend.

The National Corvette Museum is moving on to 2021 and orga-
nizing their calendar and scheduling a full 12 months of activity
including a number of cruises.

If you are not a member of the museum go to their website www.
National Corvette and see if there is an event you
would like to attend. Please check their website often as events are
being added weekly both for the museum and the track

On a side note for SCM Event chairs the museum is now offering
Goody Bags and Door Prizes for events such as Plastic Fantastic,
Fall Color Run, and Cars Under the Stars. The club must make the
request with at least 30 days advance notice of the events submitted
thru the club Ambassadors. They will accommodate as many as

Old Business:
● Election Voting Process Selection – Lynn Steenblock reported. He shared

the timeline that he and Marty plan to use.
○ 10-07 – An e-mail will be sent to the membership outlining the
voting process for 2021 Board officers and a second e-mail will
be sent to all members that have one to five years within the club
encouraging them to get involved and run for an office.
○ 10-14 – An e-mail will be sent to all club members reminding
them of the election.
○ 10-20 – SCM General meeting – Nominations
○ 10-23 – All Nominations are due
○ 11-03 – Official ballot by mail
○ 11-17 – Ballots must be received for counting

● Lynn and Marty are giving strong consideration to election by mail. Club
bylaws states election will be done using a paper ballot.
○ Barb Stattman made a motion to accept Marty and Lynn’s pro-
posal of using a mail in ballot this year due to limitations with a
second by Sandi Scott. Motion passed.
○ Dave Benner made a motion to authorize up to $249 to fund the
cost of mailing ballots with a second by Marie George. Motion

chase USB thumb drives and postage prior to orders being placed.

it. He should be able to have sample pictures soon. He doesn’t want to

for sure.

New Business:
● Quorum at general meeting – Gloria Weeks reported. ZOOM provides the

number of log in’s however, does not provide number of people in house-
hold attending meeting. Ron Weeks is using a roster format to count mem-
bers visible on ZOOM screen which usually increases the attendee count.
Suggestion was made to have spouses make themselves visible so they can
be counted as attending the meeting. Sandi said that we could also utilize
the chat feature in ZOOM where members could advise that spouses are in
attendance. With elections coming up it is imperative that we have quorum
for the October and November meetings.
● Club Retention Guidelines – Gloria Weeks questioned the need to utilize
Office 365 cloud storage of Secretary’s minutes. Currently the Secretary’s
club retention of records consists of Bucket Sheet newsletters. The Secre-
tary minutes are published in club newsletter. Steve Heasley advised that
the reasoning behind having the minutes backed up on the club laptop and
in the cloud is to provide him with data in the event of a laptop breakdown.
Gloria will provide Steve with a USB port providing him with the 2019 and
2020 minutes and he will utilize for backup.
● Marie George has received a request for the club to provide engraved
jackets for lifetime members. She was advised that lifetime members are
already acknowledged by FOM and she should refer the member to Mike
● Dave Benner asked if we’re taking care of our club sponsor. Are we
maintaining contact? Ron Weeks advised that he has personally driven out
to Saxe to deliver the Bucket Sheet newsletters in person to Greg Simon.
Dave Olson has extended an invitation for Greg to join us on a ZOOM
● Jim Bodin said that a photographer followed the group into Keller Golf
Course asking if he could take pictures of the cars. He also wants to come
to a ZOOM meeting to place a sales pitch. Jim was advised that attending
membership meetings is reserved for our advertisers.
● Lynn requested labels to be used for ballot mailing. Ron Weeks will work
with him on the request.

A motion to adjourn was made by Ron Weeks with a second by Lynn Steen-
block. The meeting was adjourned at 8:39pm.
