The "artist" that made the trophies is a member of the MPCC and signed a letter of "authenticity" for them. The detail on the trophy is incredible and it is lighted both inside the "office" and outside. Our class was for all C7 Z06's, all ZR1/ZR-1's and Grand Sports. Kinda weird, but a great honor.

Corvettes at Tahoe June 19-22, 2008
Best C1 and Best of Show

Since we're still members of the Club, I have a coupe of event updates for you.

We went to Bend on July 19th and took Fourth place C-5 Convertibles. This was a peoples choice type show.

On August 9th we took a second in the C-5 Modified class at Cottage Grove. Show was put on by the Cascade Corvette Club of Eugene. This was a Judged show.

Both placements were with the 2003 Milestone (had to clean the car in the rain, and they even judged the undercarriage).
Thanks,
Jim and Sylma (Half of the Oregon contengent of Cameron Park Corvettes)
