I hope that the weather has gotten better by the time that you read this, and most of the snow has gone away. Our club has members over a wide range of the Pacific Northwest, from Sequim on the west to North Bend on the east, not to mention those in Idaho and Montana. No one was spared from our winter storms and, the last I heard, the National Guard was coming to the rescue of some snowbound North Bend folks.
While stuck at home, I thought back to the 1980 classic film “The Shining” staring Jack Nicholson, which was based on a Steven King book about a family who spent an entire winter alone in a huge mountain resort hotel in the Colorado Rockies. The film brought a whole new meaning to the term “cabin fever”.
We had a great turnout at our February general membership meeting, hosted by our sponsor, Evergreen Chevrolet. We were treated to a wonderful lunch catered by My Chef Lynn Rehn, and were treated like royalty by the entire staff. After the meeting, two of our members, Whit Gregg and Amy Mills, put on a terrific presentation covering their racing activities in the Sports Car Club of America. Few in the audience were aware of the depth of their road racing, which extends throughout the United States, and covers virtually all the major race tracks. They have already begun their 2019 season and have raced at two tracks in Florida in January. They have a camera in Amy's car, and it showed her amazing footwork, which brought back memories of my racing days. Thanks, Whit and Amy!
So now we move on to our March activities beginning with the officer installation banquet at the Echo Falls Golf Club in Snohomish on March 9th, then our annual Wet Weekend in Bellingham on March 30th and 31st. Our April 13th general membership meeting will consist of a tour from Fry's in Renton to Johnny's Restaurant in Fife for lunch, then on to LeMay's Car Museum. A full day indeed......
Our slate of officers for the coming year is set: President, Ken Jones; Vice President, Shaun Hayes; Secretary, Judy Jewell; Treasurer, Robert Stone; 2-Year Board, Jay Marshall; and Past President, Oran Petersen. Thanks to all officers, chairpersons, representatives, event coordinators, and everyone who volunteers their time to make this club what it is and has been for over 55 years!
Don't miss out on any of the fun, send in your renewal ASAP. Drive carefully, Corvette season will be here before you know it!
