Sioux Falls Corvette Club

WWII FLIGHT MUSEUM TRIP

Come join the fun September 30th! Take a Corvette trip to the Fagen WWII Flight Museum in Granite Falls MN (30 min. north of Marshall). Re-live WWII history, including full-scale dioramas, many WWII machines and most of all, many WWII trainer and fighter airplanes in flying condition. The airplanes will be active if the weather is nice, and rides might be available in a PT26 WWII trainer ($125, but long rides). Some of the airplanes include two P40s, two P51 Mustangs, Japanese Zero, P38 (forked tail devil), B25, FM-2 Wildcat, and MORE! The museum is free, but a freewill donation is appreciated. (suggested $10)

Vehicles, Art Exhibits, Library, Airplanes-something for everyone.

It is a two hour 30min. drive. We should plan on leaving 8:30ish to get there for lunch, and the rest of the day at the museum at your pleasure. Lunch might be at the Golf Club, but I need a head count, so will determine the exact place as soon as I can, as well as firm up the departure place and time. We can have a guided tour, or go on our own. If you would like to see more, go to fagenfighterswwiimuseum.org  or google Fagen flight museum. Hope you will join us for the fun.

Please Rsvp me as soon as possible, at dpwalker67@gmail.com as they would like a head count.

Thanks,

Doc Walker

JEFF GORDAN CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION

Mike –

 

I hope this email finds you well and all is great at the Sioux Falls Corvette Club!

 

I’m reaching out from Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation, a pediatric cancer non-profit located in Charlotte, NC. We are currently holding a raffle to win Jeff’s 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible 3LT with Z51 Performance Package! Throughout the years we are proud to say that we have raised millions of dollars to fund research and innovative programs to fight childhood cancer around the country and globally through the raffle.

 

I wanted to see if it would be possible to share our raffle with the Sioux Falls Corvette Club. Our raffle sells out every year, but we always want to make sure we are extending the raffle to new audiences to have the opportunity to win a great car and support an even better mission. Your club can learn more here:

Additionally, if there is a family in your club that might be affected by pediatric cancer please let them know that the foundation or one of our partner organizations may be able to provide valuable resources. Please feel free to give anyone my contact info that might need it.

 

Let me know if I can provide additional information or answer any questions.

 

Thank you!

REAR PLATE ONLY

Final plate designRear Plate Only

The Rear Plate Only law is in effective so made the trip to the Courthouse to make my application for the Rear Plate Only.  The guy who waited on me was familiar with the plate and the process, which was simple and fast.  Since Personalized Plates are not allowed, I transferred my personal plate to my pickup, so that if we can get the personalized plate included as an option for the Rear Plate Only next year it will still be available to me.  Attached is what the new plate will look like, not one of our designs, but not bad.  You’ll note there is nothing on the sides, so there will be space for the seven characters allowed on personalized plates, when & if we get that option cleared in the next year.

Here’s how it works.

  • Bring your old plates, registration & ID with you to the County Treasurer’s Office
  • Tell them you want the Rear Plate Only on that vehicle
  • They fill out the form on line
  • They will ask you for a current mileage reading
  • You pay the normal fee, plus $25
  • They issue you a paper plate valid for 45 days
  • You will receive the actual plate in about 30 days

JUNE & JULY DRIVE & DINES

June Drive and Dine

 

Twenty-one Corvettes and one Porsche joined the June Drive and Dine from SF to the Broadwater on Lake Madison.  The Porsche Club was invited to say than you for their help passing the Rear Plate Only legislation.  Jim and Arlyce Lillegaard represented the Porsche club, enjoyed the event and where very complimentary of the SFCC member’s hospitality.

Remember the John Denver song “Country Roads”?  Common comments from those attending the Drive and Dines are that everyone enjoys seeing country roads that most have never been on, even though they grew up in the area.  It’s a great way to drive your Vette and socialize with fellow members.

Our next Drive and Dine is on July 20th , to avoid pre-BHCC activities and late month Board of directors and membership meetings.  Since the May trip to Waddy’s in Hudson was cancelled (due to hail in the forecast) we will make Waddy’s our destination for July 20.  See you at 5:30-6:00 in the Dawley Farms theater parking lot.
