Old Business:
Run Reports:
1)   Aug 10 --- Corvettes of Southern NB --- 10 cars from our club; good event
2)   Aug 11 --- 34 cars --- Memramcook, Belliveau Orchards, to Roger and Angie’s and then on to Hillsborough where Bob and Lana Cooke had prepared a great BBQ and everyone enjoyed the garage and the grounds. Special thanks to all those who helped to make this a great day --- the Cooke’s including Jeff who did a drone video of our cars, Trueman and Margaret, Bob and Carolyn, Dave and Sharon, Steve and Marilyn.  A $500 donation was collected for Children with Learning Disabilities.
3)   Aug 17 --- trip to PEI. Thirty cars crossed the bridge and met 25 – 30 more at Gateway Village followed by a tour of eastern PEI.  Saturday was such a fun day we were able to avoid being too disappointed when Sunday came in with rain.  Thanks to all who donated items for the Chinese auction.
4)   Carlisle tour had approximately 45 members participating
5)   Bowling Green anniversary tour --- 1 car from Moncton, 2 from Nfld, and 6 from NS.  One highlight of the trip was being able to meet with GM exec Lisa and have a close look at her new C8.  Toured Harley Davidson plant; tours of Corvette plant were priced at $500; Jefferson Airplane concert and fireworks were great fun.  It was a tour of a lifetime for many in attendance.  It was noted that reports are coming out that C7’s are still being produced on the line with the C8s
