Long Island Corvair Association (LICA) Web-News

Secretary's Report
September’s meeting was called to order at 8:40 by our president Dick Downes. Opening statements asked for volunteers to help with the various jobs that need to be done at our Sept. 24th show. A good response followed, with volunteers for food, registration and set up. Dick also discussed the methodology of judging and described the plaques being presented to all participating Corvairs and owners. Member Jay Putt has volunteered to update and upgrade LICA’s web site — much thanks to Jay for this effort. Member Vic Clausen has volunteered to lead a Corvair Fall Tour of Long Island’s beautiful East End — starting in Holtsville, and ending in Greenport, with many points of interest in between. Vic has developed both an itinerary and a map to follow. This promises to be an interesting event, and the last Corvair caravan of the year. Scenic roads and Corvairing, great way to spend a Fall day! Member Terry Stafford suggests that we invite other orphan club members to participate. The usual format that is followed, was not used in this meeting, as our board agreed that the time was better used for LICA show business and the discussion of our upcoming “Windmill” Tour. This meeting was attended by 14 members and 6 Corvairs.
Respectfully Submitted, John Sunden

LICA 8th Annual All-Corvair Show
On Saturday, September 24th, LICA presented its 8th Annual Corvair show at the Suffolk County Maritime Museum in Sayville NY. At the peak time during the day there were about 17 Corvairs represented plus two Pontiac Fieros from another club. Trophies were awarded in a number of categories and each participant received a photo plaque of his or her car. Raffle prizes were plentiful and just about everyone won something. There were early and late open and closed body styles and John Sunden was able to get his Corvair van running in time to bring to the show. Mark Jones brought his beautiful modified early sedan and just about every combination of 2-carburetor, 4-carburetor and turbo-powered versions were represented. The LICA chefs rallied to produce breakfast and lunch as a fund raiser for the club and many members donated their time and muscle-power to make the event a big success. Details of the event will be published in LICA’s November ’05 newsletter ‘Vair Voices.
