CORVETTE HUMOR
An old man and woman (not Corvette owners) were married for many years.  Whenever there wa a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night.  The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!" 
Neighbors feared him.  The old man liked the fact that he was feared.  To everyone's relief he died of a heart attack when he was 98. 
His wife had a closed casket at the funeral.  After the burial, her neighbors concerned for her safety asked, "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?"
His wife said, "Let him dig.  I had him buried upside down, and I know he won't ask for directions."

CORVETTE HUMOR
Yesterday, I was at the downtown post office. Now I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing a parking ticket.
So I went up to him and said, "Hey Dude how about giving a guy a break?"
He simply ignored me and continued writing the ticket.
So, I went off the deep end and called him a pencil necked Nazi.  He then glared at me and started writing another ticket for having bald tires. 
So, I called him a sorry excuse for a human being.  He then finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the first ticket and then he started to write a third ticket!
This went on for about 25 minutes...the more I abused and hurled insults at him, the more tickets he wrote...
But hey, I didn't care.  My Vette was parked around the corner...

Annual Christmas Party a Huge Success!
Forty-eight people participated in the annual CDT Christmas party held at the Seven Seas.  The food was great and over $1,000 was raised during the silent auction.  A new record!  Games were played and festivities went into the late evening.  Special acknowledgement was given to Gerald Gregory who travelled all the way from Locust Grove, Oklahoma to attend the party.  Way to go Gerald!
The silent auction items were very upscale and included a round Corvette pub table donated by Paul & Evie Klemetson, a huge Detroit Chevy Billboard banner donated by Ross and Jan Haugeberg, great Corvette photos from Mike Lalonde and other fantastic items.  Thanks to everyone who donated items for the silent auction!  
Also, thank you to Irene McCollom for all her planning, decorating and hard work in making the Christmas Party venue such a classy event!  Simply put, you are awesome!!
Meeting Minutes:
Seven Seas
Saturday, January 14, 2012  7:30 PM
Past President Vickie Gunsch brought the meeting to order.  Bruce then asked that the past months meeting minutes be amended to reflect the fact that that an award for the president was approved by the membership but kept secret so as to keep it as a surprise for the outgoing president.  The recognition award was presented to Vickie Gunsch by Mary Scott. Bruce McCollom stated that he and Irene felt it appropriate to give awards to the past two presidents, Mike Neigum and Mike Lalonde for their past service.   Bruce and Irene personally funded these awards and presented one of them to Mike Neigum.  Mike Lalonde was not present and Bruce said that he would get the recognition award to him.  
Bruce McCollom gave the Treasurer's report and said that the current club balance was $5088.17.  He stated that we currently have 59 paid members.

Registration is $25 per person.  The return trip portion of the trip could be flexible and people could travel individually or caravan.  Ross said that to make the planning feasible it would take a commitment of 5 or 6 cars.  A show of hands was requested for interest in the trip and approximately 8 couples expressed a possibility in participating.  Ross will continue to gather information for the trip and lay out the details.  Ross said that Corvette Clubs participating in the event are entitled to special privileges such as parking.  
The election of officers was overviewed from last months meeting.  Officers as elected are:
Val Wangler, President
Mary Scott, Vice President
Bruce McCollom, Treasurer
Vickie Gunsch, Trustee (past president)

Past President Gunsch recognized Earl Larson and Mike Koffler as original charter members of the Corvettes of Dakota Territory car club 35 years ago.  Earl thanked the club for inviting his wife Marlene and himself to the CDT Christmas party and said that it was obvious to him that the club was vibrant and healthy.
New Business:
It was announced that the BSC scholarship sponsored by the club was given to Jeff Wuitschick who by chance is a member of our club.  Individuals selected for the scholarship is determined by the faculty and administration at BSC.  Jeff expressed his appreciation for being selected for the scholarship.
