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.
Looking for a really nice Corvette Event within a day driving distance. Consider Vettes in the Park. It’s fun, it’s scenic, and the University of Okoboji Corvette Club is a great neighbor club and they have always supported the Black Hills Corvette Classic.
Here’s the information on the Little Village Musuem that was part of our Garage Tour this spring. Several who were not able to attend have expressed interest. If you’re going to visit the Little Village do it when the temperature is cooler. If you have ever worked in a barn during the summer months, you’ll understand. It is very interesting and the owners has a story about every item. It’s worth your time.
The threat of hail kept most Corvettes in the garage rather than the May Drive & Dine. Four resourceful members found a way to “hail proof” after a 15 block drive and during the dine portion of the trip.
Dusty is lost for words? A picture is worth a thousand words? Thank you Dusty & Kathy Miller, Roger Corkill, Dave Rowe, Harold & Joyce Van Der Wilt, Warren & Kay Huber.

Mother Nature cooperated with our first Corvette driving event of the year. Twenty-two cars headed north on I-29 to view the Little Farm collection of farm and rural memorabilia collected by the Lacey family over their many years of drilling wells. They worked on a project to abandon unused wells on old farm places that allowed them to search old buildings for pieces of our history that were going to be bulldozed or burned. If you grew up on a farm or spent some time on relatives farms this collection is worth your time to listen, learn and share your own memories of the “good old days”. We spent about two hours there, but had to leave because Steve Ollerich was waiting to show us his Pontiac Collection in Dell Rapids. Steve building is home to about 40 Pontiacs from the muscle car era and was just finished last fall so is not totally completed. His man cave which will seat about 75 people and is open to the community for graduations, showers, etc. At about 5 PM we met at the Old 77 Bar & Grill, to socialize and enjoy a meal.
On our first Drive & Dine on May 10, we drive through Newton Hills on our way to Waddy’s in Hudson, SD where you will be able to order off the menu or for quicker service order what many call the best pulled pork sandwich in the tristate area, fries, and coleslaw for $7.00. Meet in the theater parking lot at Dawley Farms at 5:30, depart at 6:00. If you’re late and want to catch up call Mike at 610-5791.
