Chairman Notes


Summer 2022 Chairman’s Message

By Jim Moxley

Hello to all the Mid-Atlantic Members!

Five months into the new year and we have already completed two judging events, plus a major celebration.

We kicked off the year at Zip Corvette, where we welcomed three Corvettes for judging plus one Sportsman entry. Following the judging, the event featured a bonus – a celebration of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter’s 40th anniversary of the chapter founding. There were 48 members and guests present, an excellent turnout. Thanks especially to our host, David Walker, and his Zip staff who bowled us over with their hospitality.

David, after serving a delicious BBQ lunch, cooked on the spot by David, gave us a presentation about the state of the Corvette hobby and with an update on the Zip purchase of the Long Island Corvette.

A special treat was a talk by charter member and first chapter chairman, Don LaRue, who transported us back 40 years with fun and memorable anecdotes of how the chapter was founded. Don was then joined by 5 other charter members (Dwight Farmer, Page Campbell, Bill Sangrey, Mike McCagh, and Andrew Callimahos in a panel discussion that featured many funny stories.

In addition, there were outstanding displays of photos and other memorabilia that told the story of the 40 year history. Also featured was an excellent slideshow created for the 25th MAC anniversary and it tells a great story of a lot of fun enjoyed by early members. In addition, seven former Chairmen were present (*denotes present at the event)

Special recognition was given to the MAC charter members as well as the past Chairmen.

It was important to have the celebration to gain an appreciation about the “roots” of the chapter and the people who founded it and who have provided leadership through the years.

We continued the celebration at Lindsay Chevrolet in Front Royal where General Manager Justin Bates and staff gave us the royal treatment. We will have a similar recognition at the Turner Chevrolet event in September.

The success of our first two events was the result of a lot of planning, preparation and implementation by MAC members, notably by Scott Juergens, our new judging chairman, and Gil Dickens, Vice Chairman. Many thanks go to those two for a job well done. In addition, thanks for the members who volunteered to judge and to the tabulators, without whom we could not have judging events.

I hope to see you at the next events; a Road Tour June 11 to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, at Triangle, VA, (near Quantico) and the chapter charity event, ‘Serve Our Willing Warriors’ in Haymarket on July 7.
