This is always a really fun event!

in Montgomery AL a total of $1061.00!

Departing Decatur AL, 9:04 am
On the way down I-65, here comes the Bowling Green Assembly Corvette Club!
A few early arrivals at Solomon Chevrolet in Dothan.
There were a bunch of fun plates in the lot - click image to see them
Dinner and silent auction that evening at the Dothan Clarion.
Things got pretty crazy outside the Bowling Green Assembly Corvette Club rooms.
They had set up a bar on the room ironing board out on the walk!

View of the deck, including Marla & Randy - the Anniversary couple.
They married, right here, this time last year!
For some reason, I didn't get any pics from dinner that night at Pineapple Willy's!

The Show at the Wyndham Bay Point
Jerry & Pat Price joined the Hood Signature legion for their $25 donation to the American Cancer Society!
National Corvette Museum booth, and show Registration. Gary Cockriel, Randy McClure, Brian Webb and Marla McClure.
Dinner and Live Auction in the Ballroom Saturday evening.
Somebody actually caught me eating, but with the 50/50 container close at hand.
(Also, having had way too much sun the day before - my face almost matches my shirt!)
Eric Millette, Jim Robertson, Steve Grilli, Kelly Walker and Charley Robertson get the auction started.
Kelly, Jim & Steve keep things lively - note growing lineup of beer bottles!
Kirk Bennion describes one of the MANY one-of-a-kind items he created for this auction.
Not only was this auction really fun, but it raised $8500 for the National Corvette Museum!!!
After the auction, we drew the winner of the 50/50 raffle that I had been selling tickets for all evening. The pot had grown to $1036.00, to be split between the winner and the American Cancer Society.
And the winner was...
They gave it back, so that the entire $1036.00 went to the American Cancer Society! Thank you Barbara and Zeke!
And a BIG Thank You to Circle City Corvettes for allowing us to do this fundraising at their event!
That $1036.00 plus the $25 for the Price's hood signature brought the total for ACS to $1061.00!
Afterwards, out back at the tiki bar, the craziness of the Clarion ironing board bar party continued, which this disturbing shot of Bruce Eubanks with Eric Millette in a headlock demonstrates.
The end of another really fun event...
