"Hello everyone

1.   The countdown has seriously started and we want to let everyone know that we will be placing orders for shirts, port, show bags etc by the 1st February.  Easter is very early this year and as a result we have an extra early cut-off date.  Please remind all your Club members that as from the 1st February the price for the Convention increases and there is no guarantee that shirts and show bags will be available for last minute entries.

2.   The Hotel is taking the last few bookings and then we will refer people to other Hotels.  Please tell members that they will need to email me for these details if they have not secured their accommodation yet.

3.   We received a rush of entries late in December 2012 and are processing these now.  We will announce the winner of the early bird accommodation draw in our next email.

4.   If any entrants wish to order a special ladies shirt, I need them to email me before 25th January for details.  These shirts will not be available for purchases after this date.  I can email a picture for any interested ladies.



Kind Regards

If anyone is seeking a room at the convention venue, the Burke and Wills Hotel in Toowoomba, a couple of rooms have become available, due to the late cancellation of some overseas visitors.
Please contact Murray Foreman without delay on 0402 917400.
If not taken up by monday 11th Feb, the rooms will be surrendered back to the hotel.
Now living the dream in God's country!

Hello everyone

This will be the last generic email as from now on we will be only emailing those who have registered for the 25th National Convention.  As there are only six weeks to go, we are fine tuning the event and confirming last minute details.

We have confirmed the attendance of Eric Millette from the Bowling Green Plant in Kentucky USA.  He will be doing presentations each night about the factory, the C7 and the new amendments at the Plant.  He will be very accessible over the weekend and has said he is looking forward to meeting as many people as possible.  Talking Corvettes is his favourite pastime!!

We have confirmed the Show and Shine will be held in the centre of Toowoomba in the Village Green – across the road from the Burke and Wills Hotel so there is no chance of getting lost and the ladies can enjoy as much shopping as their husbands will allow!!  We will be featuring C1 through C6’s on display.  Performax are working on the C6 2013 427 anniversary convertible right now and this will take pride of place in the display.

If you know anyone who wants to advertise their Corvette for sale, the next Just Cars magazine will be featuring Corvette articles.

Final entries are now being accepted at the higher entry fee.  Please check this when putting your entry through.

Accommodation can be booked direct with the Burke and Wills Hotel on (07) 4632 2433.

Paul Stokell (Stokell Motorsport) has confirmed 3 events on the track at Morgan Park and there should be time for a fun cruise as well.

Any enquiries can be directed to Jan Rosser at
janandgarth@bigpond.com

Ha Bfit hows the progress going on your Convention TRANSPORT!!!!!!!!

There is still a lot to do
Today it came of the hoist.
Rebuilt engine, new transmission ,new diff ,new brakes all round
I have a brogsen steering box and Hydraboost but I can not see them in the car before the convention .

The DeWitt radiator turned up last Monday unfortunately damaged
I am not keen on running to Queensland on the original radiator
I may ave to pull the radiator out of my 69 for the trip.

With time running out
The car goes in tomorrow for a custom exhaust
And Tuesday to the auto electricians to tidy up some wiring
I will if all goes to plan take her on he run next Sunday
Driving her today all thing are working and no issues

I have it a little peddle down to see what it goes like an found the rev limiter works
5600 RPM times to change gears


I think she has enought grunt for now
And the 6 speed is quit nice .
My new hood won't get here in time
For the present time she has a hood I got for my 69 and a nice shade of blue
She is for now a two tone vette

Less than a week to go to the start of the
The great McDonalds run to Toowoomba
Seems appropriate when driving an American icon.
