From the Prez....

My how time flies by. It is summer and half the Corvette season is gone. With events now going on every weekend, there is always someplace to go or something to do. Hopefully all is well with everyone and as always I look forward to seeing everyone at the June meeting.

Richard
President, DtRC

Miscellaneous ramblings from the Editor:
