Pinehurst concours d'elegance
This past weekend was the 4th annual Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance right here in our backyard!
And our club was well represented too! We had two cars on the actual Concours field as well as multiple cars in the Fairway Club.
John Vorisek and Gregg Gaylard both got called up to the big leagues and had their cars on display in the Councours. Below is John's beautiful 930 (being judged at the show)
Here is Gregg's Jag at the show
The Hurricane Region also had a strong showing amongst the volunteers that are needed to run the show. Russell and Penny, Gregg and Kevin (this was Kevin's first time to miss working the event as he was in Africa - tough break:-), and myself are all on the vehicle operations team that lays out the field , gets the show cars onto the field and into position, and finally manages the logistics of the awards ceremonies moving the cars across the stage for award presentations. The Carolina's Regions was there working magic too! Marty Barrett and MJ and their team did an awesome job getting all the Fairway Club cars in place within two hours (approx two hundred cars!) My apologies if I missed or forgot to mention any of our folks working the event.
We also had a Winner! MANY CONGRATS TO STEVE GADDY!!!!
Steve won the Fairway Club Award - this is akin to the People's Choice Award - Steve's car was chosen out of the two hundred parked on the fairway! WOW!
Also spotted Bryan Tucker and Tom Roos there (once again - my apologies if I didn't see you/post photo of your car)
There were many, many more of us there then I can capture in this Blog.... Pam, Margaret, Vern, John, Jeff and the list goes on and on! The weather held and a great time was had by all!
Hope to see you there next year!
And of course, it wouldn't be a complete weekend without me getting dirty working on one of the cars! See you at our upcoming monthly meeting May 10th, Doug
