Prez Sez - Lots More to Come!


Thanks to everyone who has attended the SFCC general membership meetings this year as well as the special events. The turnouts for both have been great! Everyone that came had fun. Our latest Drive & Dine to the Buffalo Ridge Brewing Co. in Hartford had a huge crowd and people stayed a long time! Our next event is the Poker Run that has been set up by our Vice-President Hailey Johnke and promises to be a lot of fun. Funds from this poker run will be donated for medical care for Ky, the great-grandson of Mike and Colleen Skiles. I know Mike and Colleen really appreciate everything the SFCC has done for Ky’s benefit this year and this poker run will continue to help him. The date and time appear below.


The Black Hills Corvette Classic (BHCC) is just around the corner. Registration will be on Wednesday, July 17th at Jerry’s starting at 9:00 a.m. Also, the merchandise trailer will be at Jerry’s for your shopping pleasure. Hot Summer Nights will be held at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds starting at 4:00 p.m. A new and fun guessing game is being provided by Art and Marie Nordstrom. Funds raised from this game will be donated to the SFCC charity, American Legion Post 15.


On Thursday morning, July 18th, the annual Corvette caravan from Sioux Falls to Al’s Oasis will take place with a drivers meeting starting at 8:00 a.m. Donuts and coffee will be available. We will take the same route out of the Fairgrounds like we did last year. Prez Denny will be leading the caravan again. The Corvette Classic starts Thursday night in Spearfish with a mixer and dinner. As usual, there will be many fun activities to participate in. If you haven’t been to the Classic for a while think about attending this year. Unlike the first 50 years, now it is more pleasure than work!
