Well what a day we had had at Mulberry Estate for our Christmas Party, great food (and heaps of it) an upgrade to the
Large Ballroom with the balcony to view our buitefull Corvettes.
A big thankyou to the Social team for organising and running a great day and thankyou to the rest of the Committee for the
help you all provided making the day run so smoothly. Plus Clair and Bron for their help as well with the raffle tickets.
The following quote from Ron Flood says a lot for the day
“To all C of WA members, In the past 41 years of C of WA there has never been club event (excluding conventions) that has
had this many vettes on display (37) at a function. This is a “historic’ moment for which all members should be proud of.
A great venue ,complimented with xlnt food and the organization of the committee it was a spectacular!!!”
I would also like to thank the members that came along to support our club in such big numbers with their Corvette and make
The day so special.
John Neskudla even though he was not well came out to Mulberry Estate and took a heap of photos plus
put together an 11 minute slide show for your enjoyment.

Great day for a cruise stopped at Peter Brock Memorial, finished up at Mundaring pub
Andy had an adventure:
Pretty girls but one of them let me down
Smoke coming out of the steering column, pulled over quickly on the free way
Tried to get battery disconnected but too tight without spanner
Smoke did not smell like electrical searched further with floody
Restarted the 73 and smoke started again out of the column and blinker arm hole ????????????
Lifted bonnet and found oil leak from rocker cover onto exhaust manifold and fan blowing it up the steering column into the cab
Who would of thunk
Returned 73 to workshop and continued on in the 69 with Greg

August Midweek Cruise 2020 – CU@Park Cafe in Granville Park, Gingin
A brilliant day in the sunshine driving up to that town that will soon have to change its name because of cheese. There is something magic about blue sky and green fields and a Corvette blasting along a country road. You would never get it in a Volkswagen! The food was awesome at the CU Cafe, their chef really knows what a “blue” steak is, really! ( to make a good blue steak all you do is run the steer through a bushfire and serve). In the videos, the up and down movement is to “give life” to the lineup (that is my excuse!!). On the way up I had a fox run across the road in front of me, nearly skittled him. Nothing unusual you would say, foxes are everywhere (thanks to the Queen), but you would be wrong. This fox was the size of a large Shetland pony and it had a great white shark in its mouth! (well, you get the idea, this beast was big!!). I have never before seen a fox towing a dual axle caravan, but there is a first time for everything!! I followed Andy W and Natalie T back south but when I lost them over the horizon on a prairie where you could see for 68 miles, I decided to lower my speed to warp factor 4. Happily the fuel gauge stopped moving faster than the tacho and I decided to take a diversion to the Yanchep Lagoon. Saw several foxes catching great whites and a couple of white pointers on the beach. As the ocean started to overwhelm the sun, I sadly headed the Corvettes bow for her homeport in Kingsley. Ended the day following James Bond home (what a number plate to have!!). Keep your eyes out for shark eating foxes, they’re everywhere! Adios Amigos

Thanks to Lois for organizing the May 2020 Picnic Cruise .

Just a bit of input from John N
We went on a CVBC today!!! That’s a “Co-Vid-Buster Cruise”, buster! Lunch under the trees as the stable of Corvettes sat quietly nearby awaiting another chance to growl their way up the hills and down the dales; out came the chairs and tables and cakes and sandwiches and the talk of spare parts and headlights and bonnets and wheels and paint jobs and tyres and horsepower and upholstery and spark plugs and fuel; ahhhhhh…..love is a Corvette!!! Grrr Grrrrr Grrroooooowwwwlllll!!!!
