Dear Members:

The April 26 visit to the USS Slater was informative, fun and in my opinion, enjoyed by everyone. We had a total 18 members, family & friends in attendance with six beautiful Corvairs. Yes, Chris Glander does have a Corvair! The weather more than cooperated and we even had a chance to see some the filming of "Salt" Angelina Jolie's upcoming movie, which in part is being filmed in Albany.

Our lunch meeting at the 76 Diner proved to be a lot of fun and delicious too. The folks at the diner were very accommodating. The plan for May is our annual cruise-in meeting at PJ's Barbeque. It will be held, Tuesday May 26. We should plan to arrive sometime between 5:30 and 6:00 to register our Corvairs for a complimentary chicken dinner. This event has proven to be one of the club's favorites. We usually have more than 10 cars in attendance and PJ's set aside a special place for us to park as a group. If you are attending, just show up! PJ's is located just north of exit 13N of I-87 (Northway) on route 9, Saratoga Springs. Be there or be square.

Still your President,

Members present were: Peter and Carol Callesano + Debbie, Steve and Sherri Ruggles, Dick and Kriss Tullock, Harold and Cindy Basset, Walt and Jean Newell, Skip and Lori Rich, Jim and Monica Stewart with the flag car, Carl Boyd, Chris Glander and Dad. Where were all you “hearty” folks that didn’t go to Rhinebeck. The sun finally came out on the way home. I hear Harold Basset took home an award for his 66 Convertible.

Don’t forget the “Manchester car show” coming up on June 13 & 14. Altamont fairgrounds or Saratoga auto museum, May 16. Flip a coin. The Spring Dust-off Corvair show at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds in Contoocook NH. Nice show if you don’t mind the drive. May 16 Guptil’s cruise in starts 2nd Monday in June. I just got my App. for the Bennington car show, Sept. 18 & 19. At the old race track again. Hemming’s cruise in at Bennington, every other Thursday, starts May 14.

Now, all we need is gas money.
