Message from the Chairman,
The Summer of 2021 is off to a great start with our first Judging Meet in over one year!
On June 11th and 12th we held our first Northeast Chapter Judging Meeting in 2021. Due to the tremendous participant interest, the meet was held over a period of two days in order to properly judge the over 20 cars and to balance the workload for the judges. I would like to extend my appreciation to Judging Chairman Jay Tansey and his team for all of the time dedicated to preparing, planning, and execution of the meet, to Larry Sachs for the extremely generous use of his exceptional facility, and to all of the judges and support staff who readily donated their time and effort to make the meet a huge success. Thank you! The Northeast Chapter was honored to have so many expert judges in attendance with several traveling from out of state. And of course no meet could exist without participants, so many thanks to those who prepared and brought their outstanding cars to what resulted in a very successful event. Several people asked if the Northeast Chapter will conduct another meet in the fall. At this time there is no firm decision, but the Board of Directors will give consideration at our next Board of Directors meeting.
Due to the added day for the Judging Meet, the previously planned Judging School and Membership Meeting had to be postponed. We will reschedule in the future and will provide advance notification.
Coming up next is the Northeast Chapter Summer Picnic on July 25th (Rain date Aug 1st) at the Sunset Grill in Watertown, CT. This event is free of charge to all Northeast Chapter members that are in good standing with their 2021 dues paid. Each member can bring one guest free of charge. More than one guest will require a charge of $30.00 per additional guest. Please contact Rob Rohloff at your earliest convenience to confirm your attendance so that we can provide an accurate headcount to the facility. Mike Lombardi, the host of this event, can also answer your questions and provide additional information about the picnic. It is also a great opportunity to exercise and bring your Corvette on that day.
The Chapter Road Tour to the Club Corvette of Connecticut Car Show has been cancelled due to the postponement of the Club Corvette show in July. If their show gets rescheduled later in 2021 we will consider the Road Tour and if not, we may announce a new Road Tour venue.
Once again this year, the Northeast Chapter has secured the same 2 spaces at the Corvettes at Carlisle Show and Swap Meet held August 26-28. Our spaces are at our usual locations J-125 and J-126. We will have tents at both spaces so members can feel free to hang out. From what I am hearing, the vendor and spectator turnout this year will be grand. Hope to see you there!
National NCRS informed that the Chapter Flight Award Program will be suspended again for 2021. However, our chapter will continue with our planning to offer as many events as possible that are normally required for the Chapter Flight Award such as Judging Meet, Judging School, Technical seminar, Road Tour, and charitable and social events. If you have any ideas or recommendations for events, or would like to host an event, please bring your ideas forward to any of our Chapter officers. Contact information can be found on our website www.ncrsnec.com.
Enjoy the great summer weather and we look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
