Pictures \ Past Events / Oct 27, 2017 - Hampton Middle School Fall Fair
« Last post by psdunn on October 28, 2017, 04:52:17 AM »
Seven cars left Moncton on an cool, overcast morning for our final run of the 2017 season headed for Hampton, NB and the middle school fall fair which includes a car show.  This annual event is used to raise funds for school activities and it is a day the students look forward to every year.  Our group of Corvettes was given prime parking spots adjacent to the school building and the students loved inspecting the cars up close.  Another member joined us at the school so there were 8 Corvettes there for the students to enjoy.  Lindou started his engine and gave the kids a chance to sit in the car and rev up the engine, creating a long line-up of excited young people.  After the event ended, we all headed back to Moncton on the TCH to end the season.

Pictures \ Past Events / October 21, 2017 - Trueman's Lobster Run
« Last post by psdunn on October 22, 2017, 02:18:28 AM »
This was our last official weekend event for this season and the weather could not have been better and, as a result, we had a large turnout of 32 cars along for the drive.  We left from Riverview and travelled along Route 114 to the village of Hillsborough where we stopped at the home of Bob and Lana Cooke to tour the garage and check out their collection of cars, motorcycles and snowmobiles while enjoying coffee and donuts.  From there, we continued along Route 114 to Alma where we stopped to purchase our lobster at Collins Lobster Shop - beautiful fresh cooked lobsters at a reasonable price.  Many also visited Kelly's Bake Shop to buy sticky buns or other fresh baked treats.  We then drove through Fundy National Park and on the the Goshen Snowmobile Club clubhouse where we feasted on our lobster.  After eating and cleaning up, we drove back to Moncton along back roads through Havelock with a final stop in Salisbury.  It was a great day to wrap up the final weekend outing of the season.
Thanks to Trueman Copp for putting it all together and leading the caravan.

Pictures \ Past Events / October 14, 2017 - President's Run to PEI
« Last post by psdunn on October 15, 2017, 02:04:09 AM »
On a cool overcast morning, 17 Corvettes departed from Moncton headed for the Centennial Bridge and PEI.  We stopped at the Gateway Village on the PEI side of the bridge where we were met by several members of the PEICC to join us on the run.  Our first stop was near the old ferry dock in Borden where we stopped for some photos.  We then travelled east along the coast to the town of Victoria where we stopped at the wharf.  From there we continued east to the Port-La-Joye - Fort Amherst National Historic Site.  From this vantage point you have a clear view of the Charlottetown waterfront and on this day a large cruise ship was in port.  Many in the group said that this would be a good destination to return to in the summer.  From here, we drove to Cornwall for lunch and then Errol Callbeck of the PEICC took the lead for a drive west through the interior of the island and then back to Borden and the bridge.  Although the weather was overcast for most of the time, it was a very nice day and an opportunity to explore places most of us had never been to.  Thanks to Roger, Angie and Errol for putting it together.
