I am sorry. I am battling cancer at this time in my life & need to keep my attention focused on that. I can still vote YEA even though I would be able to contribute to a member gathering. Happy New Year.

I would hate to see this feature go away I’have only been able to make 3 of the gatherings.  this is one of the features that makes this fourm special maybe it should be scheduled every other year. Since the Covid the world has changed some for the better and some for the worse and many are still playing catch up

I vote YEA!  I've only been a member for about 4 years and I haven't participated in one of these events yet. Personally, I'm over this COVID BS and I'm ready to get back to normal. The government's handling of this just, basically, put us all in a partial lockdown as they hyped it WAY over the Flu that it is. The Flu has killed way more people. The people are the true value in this group... much more valuable than the online capabilities. I'd rather talk to you on the phone than text. That's how I feel. Thanks to all of you that make this a special place!  God bless you all!

Some of our members' C3's may not be up to traveling far from home safely (mine for one). So a road trip may be nerve racking and a challenge. It's fun to have a C3 and I love tooling around in my Chevrolet but my concern for safety and well being on a road trip is an issue for me and may take all the fun out of it.

I always love to meet fellow C3 enthusiasts and I appreciate the previous comments regarding the opportunity. The C3 VETTE REGISTRY is great for connecting and sharing thoughts and ideas and getting help and advice.

I don't have a solid answer. Hosting a Member Gathering that is centralized to a higher density of members may help (like the east region). Piggybacking on another event may be advantageous to getting members together. With the member map that allows us to see members who live close by, and for those who are interested, it may be an opportunity to reach out to fellow members and gather at an event within a respective area.

I appreciate what you do Adam and all the time and effort you contribute to bringing the C3 family together.

Thank you.

We very much look forward to seeing our C3VR friends every year at the annual gatherings. Although Covid disrupted those gatherings the last few years, we hope that the group will continue to get together in the future.

We feel that our next annual gathering would be most successful if it’s scheduled in the Eastern Region, as it is where we are likely to get the highest turnout. How about New Jersey or Massachusetts?

Thank you to everyone that has chimed in here.

Looks like we have a decent amount of interest.

So, it's time to make some location suggestions.

Check out this thread to make your suggestion...

I would like to see the group and gatherings continue. I live in Canada, and with the high price of gasoline and the high exchange rate I have to pay to buy U.S. dollars, it makes any trip south very expensive. As well I have serious health problems, that have taken over many aspects of our lives. I can’t attend, but would like to see things continue.

I have been a member for almost 20 years and would hate to see the gathering go away.  Have been to quite a few and the one in Texas this last year.  Hope they keep going as the friendships we make are great and as we all love our Vettes have a lot in common.
