Corvettes at Carlisle Road Trip – August 25 to August 28, 2016
Six corvettes met in Brockville, to start the trip to Carlisle, Pennsylvania for the annual Corvettes in Carlisle weekend. After a quick stop at duty free, and a seventh member vette showed up, we arrived Thursday afternoon at the Carlisle fairgrounds. Being an extremely hot day we joined the Niagara club members for some refreshments and the group was interviewed by a NBC local TV station. We registered for the event and made our way to the hotel, to enjoy the pool and some more refreshments.
Three additional member corvettes arrived along with the Wendy, Pam and Richard in the motorhome. A number of wives made the trip this year and we had a total of 22 members from the club in attendance.
The weather was extremely hot, over 35 each day. We spent time exploring the vendor booths, looking at the corvette sales corral, walking the grounds looking at the thousands of corvettes, visiting the CCC watering hole and the “Canadian Embassy”. At the end of each day back to the hotel for a swim and refreshments.
Tony Duplante won the Celebrity Choice Winner for his 1972 Ontario Orange Stingray. Congratulations Tony!
Everyone that attended had a great time, but you would think with the wives present, the boys would be on their best behaviour!!! Well that did not happen and as Ron would repeatedly say, what happens in Carlisle stays in Carlisle.
Some members drove home on Sunday while others made their way to Hersey to tour a brewery and visit the chocolate factory.
