October

Jungle Roar

 

With a sad heart we say good bye to yet another beloved member of our club.  GiGi Chenevert lost her battle to cancer after a long time of courageously fighting.  She will be sadly missed by her family, friends and all lives whom she touched.

 

Fall is officially here.  With its arrival comes lots of homecomings and parades.  Thanks for helping Maria by driving when called upon.  Don’t forget LSU is October 12th.  If you have not signed up on the list and want to participate please don’t hesitate to give her a call. 

 

The unveiling of the C8 Corvette has many people considering stepping up to the new mid-engine ride.  Don’t be surprised if you see a few making an appearance in the BRCC.

 

As always we ask you to refer often to our events calendar on our website.  Karen keeps it up to date and loaded with lots of information.  Remember log in to see members only events.

 

Absentee voting is available at our Oct. 2nd board meeting being held at Dukes Restaurant in Denham Springs.  Our regular election will be November 13th.  Don’t take you obligation lightly.  Come out and cast your vote for the person/persons you would like to see take our club into the next two years that will best represent our club.  We will be voting for a Vice-President and 6 board members of the 7 running.

 

I recently took my 2019 Grand Sport in to Discount Tire to be check for vibration.  NOT to my surprise and courtesy of Louisiana highways, I have another cracked rim and 3 tires out of balance.  Just think if this was an everyday drive!  It would be a virtual nightmare with tires and rims.  I can’t say enough about the professionalism and attention that was given to my corvette by Discount Tire.  I have tire and rim coverage on the car.  The service writers immediately jumped into action by handling my claim with the insurance company, who approved payment of a new replacement.  Unfortunately General Motors is on strike and now I wait!!

 

The end of the month is Halloween!  Have a Spooktacular time with your kids or grandkids and please be mindful of little ones running in the streets.

 

Finally, don’t forget to Save the Wave!  It’s the proud thing to do!
