Cabela's: Huntsville AL
September 17, 2016
Sadly, the day started out gloomy, and quickly deteriorated to intermittent rain. Not to be deterred, 27 Corvettes showed up. Between the $ each car collected in their classes, the Plinko raffle proceeds and the 50/50 raffle, we managed to clear $2218 for the American Cancer Society!
Thanks go out to NuVintage Corvettes and Madison Monogram for providing the really classy trophies, and to Great Lakes Trophies and Engraving for providing the Dash Plaques (image above). Also to Dana Forrester for donating one of his fantastic watercolor prints.
The many members of the Vets With Vettes and Corvette Owners club put in countless hours in the planning and organizing of the show, beating the bushes for door prizes and the actual running of the show. My eternal thanks go out to them!

This is what it looked like most of the day...

I was the last Vette in the parking lot after thanking the folks at Cabela's, and my battery was dead! The nice guy in that white Ford truck gave me a jump. He was a Harley Davidson test rider!
(Yes, I replaced the battery the following week.)
