It just occurred to me that we are currently in C3VR's 10th full year of operation. On November 1, 2011, C3VR will have been around for 10 full years.

That's pretty crazy.

Where does the time go?

I've never done anything for 10 years. I've never held a job for 10 years. I didn't even keep my Vette for 10 years. Only other thing I've held on to for more than 10 years is my marriage.  I guess that's pretty impressive, though.

Anyway.... welcome to our 10th year!  Thanks for being a part of it!

You and me, too, Dan! Congrats to all for ten years! All I know is that this site has made owning my Vette a more enjoyable experience and the members I've met at the area car shows are great! I can't wait 'til the gathering in May! (my first one!)

Good Job Adam ..... One on the site and Two on the marriage. Of course ebo would have to ask "How did you do it"
A while back when we were talkin about the "Bend" gathering it was noted that the 10th anniv Gathering will be back on the East Coast! So where shall it be? At your house?Wink

Well, if you look at the Historical and future C3VR Gathering Locations Map, I'd say Florida is a reasonable choice.

Man it's all about the data......The way I read it, is more have been South of the Mason Dixon line than NorthWink
I would have loved to have been at the Hershey one....nice country. Maybe a 10th should go back to the roots? Florida is to much of a haul for me.
See my thinking was if it was at your house the wife and Chillldrens could attend, that way we could see how the end of the terrible 3's will beLOLLOL and I don't mean C3......awww aint she cute..........
Funny we were yackin about this years gathering before we even got to Bend and now we are doin the same...........now that says Future all over it...long live C3VRClap

Congratulations to the entire crew for a successful 10 years. Adam, without your vision and leadership, none of us would have a place to go with our questions and stories. Thanks.
