Corvette club of South Australia Inc.

 

Well, Covid seemed to upset many things, including Car Shows.
We saw many clubs pull out & decide to cancel their shows.
But…..we decided to go against the grain & continue with our plans.

Holdfast Bay Council event staff were very helpful in answering all of our questions & offered additional assistance if required. After many months of planning & completing Government Covid Regulation forms we were given authority to proceed.

We still had our stalls, coffee, merchandise, Heart Kids charity & live band "Rave On" to entertain the crowd.

Nice sunny day, 85 Corvettes glistening in the sun. It doesn't get any better!

With Glenelg holding a live concert on the beach that evening, this brought additional spectators browsing amongst the Corvettes.

Ross & R4 brought down their project cars to show people how inventive & committed some guys are about Corvettes.

A lack of car shows meant we had additional interest from the public leading to a lot of public voting for what they deemed to be the best Corvette on show. Pre-registered entrants also had their chance to vote for their favourite Corvette.

Trophy Winners on the Day were
Public Choice
1st place: Chris Desmond '72 Convertible.
2nd place: Serge Giacomelli '61 Convertible
3rd place: David Lutze '61 Convertible

Entrants Choice
1st place: Gary Bergen '72 Convertible
2nd place: John Ciccarello '64 Convertible
3rd place: Paul Murdoch '68 Convertible

Many Thanks to John Randell who once again organised our unique trophies.

We wish to thank all of our sponsors for the day:-
Federation of Historic Motoring Clubs, Shannons, Larry Finis from Ray White West Lakes, Orange Spot Bakery, Gary & Cathy McPhee in honour of Sean Baker & McConnell Services.

At the conclusion of the day we reflected back on the amount of work involved to make it happen. After seeing the response from both the public & entrants we had no hesitation in declaring it was well worth the effort. With a bit of enthusiasm & planning, anything is possible.

A big thank you goes out to all the helpers who assisted with the set up, pull down, manning of the stalls & performing Covid Marshal duties.

Until next year:- Cheers from the Corvettes Rock the Bay Team
