Welcome the NEW Public Relations Manager
Introducing the new Public Relations Manager for the Lone Star Corvette Club, Judy Garrett! Judy has been a past President of LSCC as well as Membership Officer. Her experience there, plus her extensive customer service experience, will make her more than qualified for the role of Public Relations. If you have any recommendations for Judy, or if you would like to help, then let her know.
Fall is here, and so is the great weather! Check the Event Calendar often for new events. Check below for some events that we want to highlight.
49th Annual Peanut Festival and Car Show
Whitesboro is on US 82 and US 377 just north of the Metroplex. It’s more than a car show, with a parade, entertainment, food, arts and crafts, hanging out with friends and more food. The deadline for the car show pre-registration is October 3rd and your $20 includes a T-shirt. In the past, Johnny and Edie Downs have bribed LSCC members with a burger cookout at their place in Sadler. This time around, Monty and Gaye Stephens have offered to play hosts.

Sulphur Springs Corvette Show
Great restaurants, lots of shops, all on the square in downtown Sulphur Springs, Texas. What a great way to wind down the car show season! Just a short drive from DFW and the show is over early enough that you can make it home in time for dinner and a movie on Saturday night. On Friday, the Sulphur Springs Corvette Club may have a special cruise and tour set up for show participants. Check the website often for more information on this and other scheduled events.

Lone Star Corvette Club Track Day
Lone Star Corvette Club track day will be held this fall at Eagles Canyon Raceway, a 2.5 mile, 11 turn road course about 1 hour north of Fort Worth. This is NOT a competitive or a “Drive it Like ya Stole’ it” event, this will be geared for the people that wish to get a little taste of driving on a track. We will have classroom instruction for everyone and individual run groups for; Touring, Beginners, Novice and Advanced. The Beginners and Novice people will have an instructor in the right seat until “Solo Approved”. Click the link below for more information and to sign up!

Drivers Wanted - Veterans Day Parade
LSCC needs 70 Corvettes for the Veterans Day Parade on Tuesday November 11. Both coupes and convertibles are eligible. We're driving 40 WWII veterans, 20 Korean veterans, and 10 Purple Heart recipients. Drivers of the WWII veterans will be responsible for picking up and returning their assigned veterans to his/her residence. For the first time there are a number of nurses who have signed up. Several veterans live in Arlington, one in Cedar Hill, and one in Lewisville. The event is posted on the events calendar along with detailed instructions for parade assembly. If you can pickup at one of the locations specifically mentioned, please shot me an email. This is a great opportunity for new members to get involved. Parade participation is a memorable experience.
Please let the Recreational Events Officer, Bob Paton, know of any needed additions or corrections.
