Lots of cool Vettes, great people, yummy food, couldn't ask for better.  

Thanks Paul (LukesVette) for an excellent afternoon and get-together.    Thanks for sharing your wonderful BBQ abilities.   The food was great!

Please pass on a "thank you" to your lovely wife and children for their hospitality and opening up your home to us and helping make this as nice as could be.   

It was good to see some familiar faces again and great to meet several folks.

P.S. Hula Hoop contest next year. Everyone practice up.

Folks,

    This was sincerely my pleasure and I truly mean it in terms of making this an annual event. I'd also like to thank Adam, our El Presidente, for donating prizes for the trivia contest. Also a big thanks to the big guy upstairs for blowing the rainclouds away!!!

    My family and I honestly enjoyed spending the day with the C3VR members and the Vettes were really the hit of the neighborhood!! The neighbors are still talking about it You are always welcome and our home is your home!!

    And thanks for bringing along all of the salads and yummy deserts. The kids are still bouncing off the walls.

   So, what are we doing in the fall???

All the best,

Paul

Paul, just because you're probably the first to host a BB at your beautiful house for C3VR members, (which included me) and your beautiful wife Krisann and the girls were the perfect hostess's, (who obviously planned it all) just because it was everything you bragged about + more, the fact that we were made to feel like family and the Corvette assault on the unsuspecting neighborhood and cruise night participants was a lot of fun, doesn't' mean I don't have a few complaints.

The trivia game was fixed ! I provided precise answerers to some vague & difficult questions, not even Duntov could have answered them. Let me remind you that no matter what you think, the difference between a 70 & a 71 Vette is a year ! While I'm at it, the guys who brought their women along with them, their plan worked, the reason they left you guys pretty much alone, was because they were too busy annoying & picking on me !

All kidding aside, the BB was outstanding  It was a perfect day spent with really outstanding people. If I didn't thank you yesterday, I'm thanking you today. Oh, I almost forgot, there's not enough ways that I can thank you for the 23 + years that you've given to your country and protecting our freedoms.   God Bless you and your wonderful family.

We also say Thank you and had a wonderful time with everyone.   Paul and family did an outstanding job on the BBQ and hospitality.  

The cruise was quick to the show but worth the drive.   Oppsss..  Just a tad fast for us on the corners.   Lucky there's a lot of vettes going the right way.   

Here are my photo's of the BBQ and cruise.   Enjoy and keep up the hool la hoops ladies.

I couldn't agree more, & I can't thank Paul & his family enough.  It was a great day at a great place.  Paul & his family rolled out the red carpet & graciously opened their home to us. 

The food was great, the company was better & Mother Nature gave us a perfect spring day.  Fortunately, my chouffer Cookie (Warbird) was there to entertain the women while we talked about our cars. 

Unfortunately, my car is still on jackstands  & it looks like I'll be doing the front suspension before I get the engine back in.  The car show @ Lowes was a great way to end the night.

I also want to thank Mike (Iron 82) for being our unofficial photographer for the event & Adam who brought the C3VR Storefront with him.

Hopefully the next time we meet I'll be able to bring my ride.

Thanks again to Paul & his family!!!

Anthony

far be it for me to be left out of this.  excellent job paul. loved meeting everyone and putting the faces to the screen names and such. great food. good times. loved the cruise idea in the end. that certainly topped it off for the day. everyone stared at us as we drove into the parking lot. loved it.

anyone up for doing something in the fall? try to do a spring and fall get together each year? just an idea.

thanks again.

Jeremy

Mike (Iron 82) I forgot to comb my eyebrows back over my head for the pictures, and I can't hold my breath (suck in stomach) for too long, how much do you charge to airbrush some hair on me, and remove about 45 lbs. from my fat A_ _  Will I get a club discount ?

 BTW great pictures !

Paul;

Sorry for the belated thank you, but yesterday was a work on MOM's house day. 

I want to extend Kathy & my thanks for a great day, great company, great food & great memories to you & your wife & kids.  It sure was nice to put faces to the screen names.

Thanks again...

Thank you Paul and your family for a wonderful day. One of the best Corvette days I've ever had . The food, company, weather, the cruise-in were all perfect. I hope we can do more get togethers.

On another note, I wish to thank Paul for your time given to our country in time of war. From one Vet to another, I salute you and your family!

Dave

Folks, all of your kind words really are greatly appreciated! Here's to the continuance of some new found friendships as well as excuses to eat drink beer and ogle at Corvettes!!

Mike, the pictures are just awesome. I will post mine this evening.

Again, it was sincerely our pleasure to have such a nice crowd of people and of course, our little Corvette Concourse in front of the house!

Eat well, be merry and drive, drive, drive!

Regards

Paul

Now if we could get a list of names to go along with that group shot, the rest of us can make a few face name connections.

It looks like a really good time.  So don't forget Cuyahoga Falls Oh Aug 26th!
