Posters for Sale
2017 North Shore Skyline
2018 Chicago Montage
Shown above are banners that were custom designed and hung in the parking lot at the National Corvette Museum. The banner on the left (2017 North Shore Skyline) was on display at the museum last winter and summer and the banner on the right (2018 Chicago Montage) is currently on display. An arrangement has been made with a printer to have these banners printed as posters on paper.
The poster size will be 17.5" wide by 36" long and will be printed on 18 pt paper. The thickness of 18 pt paper (.018") is roughly twice the thickness of a playing card. The poster will not be framed. It will be delivered flat-packed and will not be rolled or folded. If you wish, you may roll the poster for transportation home. A board member will deliver the posters to a Wednesday Membership Meeting.
The cost of a single poster is $20. A minimum order of 20 posters must be placed with the printer to receive that price and may not be divided between the two banner designs. For example, we must place an order for a minimum of 20 posters for the 2017 banner or 20 posters for the 2018 banner. If we receive 20 or more orders for each banner, we will order posters for both.
If you wish to order a poster please fill out the form below. Indicate which banner and the quantity you would like to order. You may order as many posters of each banner that you wish. We will be getting back to everyone who placed an order via email. We will let you know if we met our minimum order, what we will be ordering and how much it will cost you. Payment for your order will be expected at the December Membership Meeting. The posters will be ready for pick-up at the January meeting.

Lake County Honor Flight #11
Jim Arquilla (left) and Jim Benton leave for Washington D.C.
Two of our very own members, Jim Arquilla and Jim Benton, joined a group of fellow American veterans for a weekend trip to Washington D.C. to visit the monuments and memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Their trip ended with a police escort from the Milwaukee airport to Veterans Memorial Park in North Chicago. The escort was led by police cruisers from just about every town imaginable followed by five club Corvettes and one metal car along with hundreds of motorcycles. At the park there were additional club members along with a record crowd cheering the returning members home. Presentations were made and the veterans spoke along with a number of dignitaries. It was a moving event and several of our members said it was one of the best things that we have ever done.
Several pictures, videos and comments can be seen on the Lake County Honor Flight Facebook page.
The first reported sighting of our new parking lot banner, hanging at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, has been made by Wilbur and Pam Buckle. Wilbur can be seen pointing at the banner like a proud father while Pam takes a picture of the monumental occasion on September 2nd. The banner is located in the parking lot outside of the Corvette Cafe. It will remain there until the end of May 2018.
A perfect day for a Wisconsin cruise
Wednesday, September 6th was a picture perfect day with cool temperatures and blue skies. Thirty-one NSCC members, one guest, eighteen Corvettes and one Jaguar came to caravan the two-lane county roads of southern Wisconsin from the Welcome Center on I-94 to Palmyra.
The date was Sunday, August 13, 2017. The place was Byron Dragway in Byron, Illinois. Two red Corvettes battled it out until there was just one winner, Larry Latko (shown on the right). Ed Harms may have lost the battle but he won the war. As seen in the picture above, shortly after the race Larry's car exploded into a huge mushroom cloud of smoke.
