Budweiser Brewery; Merrimack, NH
Gate City is my home club.
The first Corvette weekend event that Sandy & I ever attended was
Gate City's "OctoberVettes" in 1978, the year after
we got our first Vette. We rarely missed one after that...
For the past 4 years, this club has held a FundRaiser for us in a hangar at the Nashua, NH airport. In that time they have raised almost $25,000 for the American Cancer Society and Corvettes Conquer Cancer!
(Check the HUD...)
You couldn't ask for a much better day, or a nicer place for a Corvette show than Budweiser in Merrimack!
My daughter Christy and her husband Nils stopped by the show while taking advantage of the great weather to go for a bike ride. This was the first time I had seen her new (and first!) motorcycle. Way to go, Christy! She is the third generation in my family to ride motorcycles: My dad in the 30s, me in the 50s & 60s, and now her. I would have taken it for a spin, but had to go help judge a couple classes of C5/C6. We'll do it yet...
The traditional after-the-show, job-well-done pizza party at Jim Eckes' home on a nearby island. Yes, it would appear that all Corvettes ARE red, even the Avalanche model!
Thanks to Gate City, we were able to send
to the American Cancer Society's Bedford, NH office
(where Christy worked in a previous career).
Back home again, still stuffed, with daylight to spare.
