President's Report - From the Driver's Seat

Well almost time for storage of our cars or heading south for the winter months. It has been a busy Summer, some events of noteworthy mention: The 6 Hours at the Glen (John and Pat Och setup the Corvette Corral with the Glen and GM, (Nice Job) the RCC received the Club Participation Award. The Canada Mosport Race a few members did attend, the Summer Picnic (great turn-out). Vettes on the Mountain (put together by Bob Hoffarth). The 25th NCM Anniversary Celebration (several members attended and Dave Norton did a great job organizing the RCC caravan attendees to this event). The Vintage Weekend at Watkins Glen and Race, this included a Glenn Curtiss Museum outing put together by Doug our VP and a lunch event following, I could go on and on but will stop here.

At the September meeting the following members were nominated for the below Board Positions:

    • VP – Fred Elliott and Robert Hoffarth
    • Secretary – Sheila Rigerman
    • Treasurer – Jim Boshears and Co Treasure Glenn Williams

Matt Fagenbaum on behalf of Kitty Van Bortel presented a check to Jim Boshears for the 2019 Club Charity, thank you Kitty. Matt and Ali were congratulated on their Marriage event that occurred on August 24, 2019.

The 60th Anniversary Celebration of the Rochester Corvette Club, a great turn-out and the weather, though a bit chilly, cooperated. Our living Co-Founder Gen LeDoux was presented with a framed document that was autographed by the Corvette Racing Staff, GM Dignitaries and one of the Premier Corvette Artists that Dave Wright was able to procure at the Bash at the NCM Bash last year. The 60th Celebration has been in the works since 2018. Elmer (Al) Fredrick’s involvement in the Club’s forming was noted with a Framed Certificate that was accepted by Dave (#1) Kuchman on Al’s Family’s behalf, this will be sent to Stephen Fredrick from the Club in Honor of Al who passed in February of this year in California along with a copy of the 60th Club Anniversary Program that documents the chance meeting of Gene and Al in 1959. The members that have been involved with the RCC were recognized and thanked for their on-going support of the club along with those Past Presidents present at the celebration. The Gala committee received recognition for their efforts in assisting in this monumental event for the Rochester Corvette Club. Kitty Van Bortel and Staff were presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for their Cub support.

Well there you have it, 2019 is almost over, only one more “From the Driver’s Seat with a Cushion” left for the year from the 2019 President, I know you can’t wait.

A gentle reminder, this is a Volunteer Organization and those that serve as Officers, Chair Representatives, Club event organizers and help with various functions as Volunteers need our utmost Respect.

Sincerely,

Steve Popple
RCC President 2019
