Day 3

The show.

The show on the circle in front of Kimball Terrace.
There really is a harbor in the background through the fog!

Corvettes Conquer Cancer display.

The show used coin canister balloting: the C5 that collected the most money won.
This generated $1000.00 for the American Cancer Society!

Workin' hard...

Spectators came in all forms!

The Boat Ride on the Sea Princess

In spite of the fog, the boat ride came off as scheduled!

Two views of a giant, 50 year old Osprey nest.

We got within 10 feet of the cliff in Somes Sound, the only fjord in North America.
The water was still 50 feet deep!

A "cottage" along the coast...

Sunday Night Banquet at Kimball Terrace

Russ made announcements, gave out awards, and auctioned a plaque (by Ed Duprey of Great Lakes
Trophy & Engraving) commemorating the event. This raised another $200 for the American Cancer Society,
boosting the total contribution to $1200.00!

Chris Bartlett took First Place in the Show with $127.00 in his canister!

Shirley grabbed the mic for a stirring rendition of "Crazy".
You would have sworn Patsy was with us!

The party begins to wind down.

Day 4
Monday, June 18, 2001

5:32 am.  Karl is wiping down the car from the overnight rain.

This is Somes Sound from the road on my  way to work in Augusta.
(I got a head start on "Drive Your Corvette To Work Day", scheduled for June 29)

What a great weekend! Thanks, Russ!
