2017 Sulphur Springs Corvette Classic
October 27 & 28

 

This is a great show and the members of the host Sulphur Springs Corvette Club do it right.  Meet us there, or make it even better by joining the caravan to the show.  The Friday caravan will meet at 2:30 in Garland in the Bass Pro parking lot located at 5001 Bass Pro Drive - I-30 Exit 62.   Try to arrive early as we plan on leaving for Sulphur Springs around 3:00 pm Friday afternoon.  We will drive I-30 to exit 124 in Sulphur Springs.

 

If you do not caravan, directions are I-30 to exit 124, Hwys 11/154, north to downtown, left on Jefferson to Alliance Bank on northwest corner of square.  Or, put 100 Jefferson St., West in your GPS.  See you in Sulphur Springs

 

The Friday night dinner and entertainment will be a "Friday Fabulous Fifties at the Hangar" featuring an Elvis Tribute by Josh Davis. There will also be a “50’s” costume contest, so ladies bring your poodle skirts and guys, what can we say: you may have to watch “American Graffiti” again.  The Friday night event always sells out so it is extremely important to make your reservation ASAP.  Please note: All attendees must be registered for the Saturday show.

 

On Saturday there is the Corvette Show on the square.  All that, plus a historic old downtown with great restaurants and shops to fill the day, not to mention the GLASS bathrooms on the square.

 


Rooms are available at the Hampton Inn (903-439-4646) for Friday night.  This is the host hotel and will fill up quickly, so call soon.  Other hotels are the Holiday Inn 903-885-6851, LaQuinta Inn 903-885-8181 and Best Western 903-885-7515.  Mention "Corvette Rate" when you call.  What better way to wind down the car show season!  Hope to see you there.




Eagles Canyon Logo


A HPDE Track Day at Eagle Canyon Raceway is planned for the Lone Star Corvette Club November 4, 2017.  Eagle Canyon will have a group just for women including classes and track time with instructors.

 

Here is the catch; to keep this a “Club ONLY event”, LSCC needs commitments from a minimum of 35 drivers (men & women).  LSCC needs 12 to 15 Ladies to make the “Girls only” group work.  The price will be (as of now) $200 per person and includes water, sports drinks, and snacks during the day plus lunch.  We will run beginner, experienced, instructors, and women sessions.  If we have enough demand (12 to 15 drivers) for a touring group, Eagle Canyon will rearrange the groups to make a touring group possible.  The desire is to have a rotation of four groups to give us at least five run sessions for each run group.

 

November 4 is penciled on the track calendar for our event; $200 each for 35 drivers is the breakeven point for the track rental, which is why commitments are needed to make this work.  We can have our club helmets on hand at the track for those who may need one.  At this point, Mike is going to say it will be drivers only on track, no passengers (track instructors only), everyone will need a helmet on track, and Rag Tops are OK to run in the beginner group.  We can probably do parade laps during lunch; passengers OK and no helmets requires….but it will be at 35 MPH.
