Brunch and Jerseydale Pumpkin Ranch
Once we "fueled up" with brunch at Chukchansi some of us headed out for a great "back roads" drive to the Jerseydale Pumpkin Ranch outside of Mariposa. With perfect weather, good roads, exceptional fall foliage and views, the oohs and ahhs could still be heard once the cars were parked. And we heard oohs and ahhs from folks looking at the parked cars! We topped off our little road trip with a stop and hot cuppa coffee at the Mariposa Coffee Company.
Corvettes For Veterans, October 20, 2013, Red Hawk Casino, Placerville, CA
Congrats to Stan Cummins for Best C-3 1st Place! Competition was stiff in all classes as there were more than 200 Vette's registered for this event. The parking garage was a great venue for keeping everyone "out of the elements" although the weather was fantastic. And with having the garage lights on, paint and grafic effects didn't suffer. We had 5 Member Cars attend and frequent guest Don Larson joined us. Don took 1st Place in the Veterans catagory with his Z06 and also took the "Farthest Traveled" since he's from Hanford. This was an excellent event to acknowledge and suport our Veteran's. We'll definately put this on our "do again" list for 2014! Thanks to all that attended.

Johnny "O" let it be known he doesn't own the car and doesn't "baby" it, stating "We like to drive 'em to the ground". He then turned to Brenda and assured her he'd bring Stan back safe and sound.
