Saturday evening banquet and party

We wrapped up selling the 50/50 tickets, then after the great steak dinner,
and a last call for ticket sales, we interrupted the super "Blue Light Special"
band long enough to draw the winner.

The pot had grown to $584.00; $292 each for the winner and ACS.

The winner gave his share back!

But wait, there's more...

About a half hour later he took me aside and gave me
a check to the American Cancer Society for an additional
$500.00, in memory of his late wife!

That brought the total for ACS for the evening to $1084.00,
and with the additional $25 for the hood signature,

the total for the event came to $1109.00!

Thank you all who helped make this possible, especially Joe & Vera!

I did a quick walk through of the National Corvette Museum before
leaving Bowling Green. Here are a few of the sights.
