The team has been working very hard on Caravan plans: presentations have been made to clubs in our area with a couple more planned for the spring. A number of GM Dealers and other businesses have been contacted regarding sponsorship and information packages left with them. Over twenty information packages have been sent out to Corvette clubs in Ontario. And all three hotels we are using have now been contracted. Arrangements with the ACD Museum in Auburn for lunch and tour are being finalized.

Once the event activities have been posted on the Museum website for that weekend we will be advising participants as these fill up very quickly.
