This was the club's second year support this wonderful event in Ocala. Night to Shine is an evening of wonderful excitement for a group of mentally disabled young people from this area. This year 15 club members in their Vettes chauffeured 200 guests to their "prom". Our thanks to Ron & Marty Tanner for again organizing this cool cruise/event. After the driving was over we had a wonderful dinner at THE premier Italian restaurant in this area, Mesa de Notte.
What a wonderful day and wonderful automotive event at the beautiful Grand Oaks Resort and Museum in Weirsdale, Fl. Our sincere thanks to Tom Warriner, General Manager and Monica Blanco, Coordinator for Sales & Events at the resort. Without their assistance and guidance this event would not have happened. The hospitality and accommodations provided for our cruise-in far exceeded our expectations. The tireless efforts of organizers Jim Loguidice, Mike White, Roger Stokes and Charlie Tagman as well as the many Village Vettes club volunteers made this event truly memorable. We also wish to thank the local area car clubs whose members joined us to share, what turned out to be, a very pleasant successful day; Leisure Time Corvettes, Touch of Glass Corvette Club, Vettes R' Us, Corvette Club of Marion County, The Villages Antique Automobile Club, The Antique Automobile Club of America (KOR), The Village Vintage Car Club, and The Villages Nomads.
Below you'll find a plethora of pictures from the event, any of which can be downloaded as desired. Sum 01/21/18
EVOLUTION OF THE CORVETTE
Rich & Paige Udell's "other ride"
Rich & Paige, known for their custom car builds are true "car guys" owning a C6 ZR1, really cool street rod and this 1963 426 HEMI Plymouth Savoy
The club desperately needs committed committee members to help develop car show cruises, dinner runs, points of interest cruises, etc. for the club. We all own CORVETTES and we love to drive them >>>BUT<<< we need organized events to do so. With close to 500 active members, there should be some folks out there that willing to step up. Other local car clubs, larger and smaller have interesting activities, cruises, dinners, etc but we, for whatever reason, seem to have some trouble emulating this. Please contact the BOD to help us make this club the best car club in THE VILLAGES.
The following video embodies what the
is all about. Loving our cars and taking care of our fellow man. Before you go any further, please take a moment to watch this:
