    I doubt there is anyone in the Club who is happier than I am to see Charles and Joni back on Oahu! The past three months for your VP were extremely jam- packed with

    personnel-shortages at my day-job requiring everyone to assume more tasks than those in our job descriptions, and also taking on all of the things Charles does as the President to keep this club in the forefront of Oahu’s automobile culture. As I have previously stated, it really made me appreciate everything it takes to keep the CCOH viable.

    October once again gave me an opportunity to marvel at the kindness, knowledge and skills of our members when INDY78 refused to start at the starting line of the Aloha Week Festival in early October. Ray never flinched and laid down in a rain-sodden parking lot to torment my unresponsive starter, ruining his parade finery and losing out on the chance to carry the two Chinese beauty queens in the process. He next dialed up Mike Horn, who was squiring at Corvette Drive and requested he come with a new battery and starter. The streets were all closed around the parade route which required Mike and Danielle to park some distance away and walk in with a new battery, starter and toolbox. Mike did the battery swap and voila, INDY78 was back in business.

    Mike, Ray (and Danielle) have joined Dennis, Charles, and Gary as members who have helped me keep my 41-year-old car on the road, and I am extremely humbled. Kaoru gifted me with a roll- away tool chest (black, to match INDY78) and I have been accumulating tools which I hope will enable me to become a little more self-sufficient.

    I am still awe-struck at the knowledge and willingness to help that our membership demonstrates. Thank YOU Guys so much!

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Semper Vette, Jay (INDY78)

    Well, your Vice- President Jay said that my vacation was over and I had to get back in the driver’s seat as your Club President again. LOL. I must say I really appreciate Jay for doing a great job in driving the Club forward when Joni and I were gone on vacation to the mainland. Yes, it is a lot of work to be on top of all the events, coordinate participation, send emails, texts and videos out to everyone. But the most challenging part is getting our members to respond to the emails or texts. It is difficult to plan when you are not sure how many Corvettes will show up. Therefore, please respond to our inquires and let us know how you are doing.

    October was a busy month for the Club, and November to the end of the year promises to be the same. Several of our members are really looking forward to the Ewa Beach Railroad Museum train excursion with the Mustang, Shelby and 808 Camaro clubs on the 18th. Plus, we have a LOT of Holiday Parades and special events coming down the road that we will need your help with. To kick off the holidays, we are once again looking forward to Dennis and Gary T Annual Thanksgiving Day Sunrise event. If you have not experienced this awesome sunrise with us before then mark it on your calendar and join us. What an awesome way to start your Thanksgiving day! Anytime we can get out in our Corvettes as a group is fantastic!

    It’s your Club Board Election time again. Two member’s positions (Editor and Secretary) are vacant and all of the seats are available to anyone wishing to run for elections. Board membership typically requires a few hours of prep work and an additional meeting each month. We are always looking for volunteers and Nominations will be taken at the November and December meetings. The elections are on Dec 3rd at the General Meeting. So please help as some of the board members would like to take a break. V/r Charles (CYBER)
