LCHF Reunion Dinner #11 was held on Sunday 5 November 2017. Our very own Jim Arquilla/Terry and Jim Benton/Catherine along with many other LCHF veterans were in attendance. A very moving video of trip #11 was shown. There was plenty of food and lots of great conversation. Nine NSCC members donated food and their time. Also Brett & Pam Bacci's kids (Angela & Ryan) and (Anthony & Candace) donated food and their afternoon too. Ken Such made a surprise appearance and was seen in conversation with many. Thanks to all for everything NSCC has done for LCHF.
Bernie's Book Donations
NSCC members donated more than 2,100 books to Bernie's Book Bank. This was a combination of books and money and will provide 175 children each with 12 books. Jim Arquilla dropped off most of the books last Thursday and the charity committee dropped off the rest on Monday. Matt and Rosie (see photo) provided the committee with a tour and an explanation of how it all works. What a great organization.
Because of the generosity of club members, we'll make a difference in children's lives.
A Letter from Ed Harms
$ NSCC IS PRICELESS $
You join a car club because you own a special car… You find out you can learn a lot about your special car… You participate in some meetings and activities… You get to know other people with similar interests… You form friendships… You find the friendships go beyond the club… You find that good friends look out for each other…
How do I know this is true?
On the way home from two great days of racing and comradeship, low and behold my trusty 2015 Stingray sprung a leak and I found myself alone on the shoulder of I294; stranded and overheated.
Another member returning from the race spotted me as they zoomed on by. They got off the next exit and came back to me to find out what was going on. They immediately insisted I get in their air conditioned car to make my phone calls while one of them sat in the sun on the side of I294.
After a lot of time seeking tow assistance, a tow truck with a driver who specializes in antiques and exotic cars came to my rescue. We all marveled at the amazing care he took while loading up my baby.
My NSCC friends never left till I was in the tow truck heading North. That defines “Priceless”.
Thank you for your friendship, Tom and Debbie.

High Mileage Award
The High Mileage Award program is now off and running. Several members drove their Vettes to the April Membership meeting and had their speedometer readings recorded by a designated certifier.
The awards program is for all club members who own and drive a Corvette. Certificates will be awarded to the winner of each generation of Corvette along with a special award to the member with the highest mileage of the year.
You may certify your Vette at any time between now and the end of the year either by driving your car to a membership meeting or by driving your car to the home of a designated certifier. See the program rules for a list of the designated certifiers.
