Lights , Camera and Action















"Lights, Camera & Action "was the order of the day
for Terry & Jacquie Blackburn's 1976 Corvette coupe
during 16 days in November. The made-for-television
film , "Blue Seduction"had local film buffs exited in the
city of Fredericton,as Billy Zane & Estella Warren used
the capital city as the backdrop for the steamy thriller.
Terry's corvette's plates "The Legend" were replaced
by Vermont plates and the star of the film ,Billy Zane
used the vette for his personal car in the movie.Jackelyn
Giroux wrote the screen-play & Global Universal is
developing the movie.The movie, which is being filmed
for Super Channel in Canada & Starz in the United States
will be aired in the spring.Making cameo appearances
in the film are Terry Blackburn as well as Tom Hiltz of
the River Valley Vettes.I may have to come out of retirement
after all this exposure ! David & Richard Wade , "the
Singing Dentists"from Fredericton ,appear in the movie
performing songs they wrote for the film.
For photos of the filming , click on the link below !

other small papers in Fredericton, there will be a story
on the movie.

Clark's Show & Shine 2008















Saturday ,September 20th was the day of Clark's
Show & Shine . Weather started off cool & turned
into a beautiful , sunny,warm afternoon.Bob Cromwell
nearly froze and can hardly wait to get back to Florida,
but the rest of us found it nice.After the show we
traveled to Lincoln where we all showed off our soft
ball skills and had a few laughs. "MVP of the game" I
believe went to Bill Brown for his "great pitching skills
and whining". "Best play of the game" went to John
Garwood for "falling down and not being able to get
back up".Best player of the game went to Bob Cromwell
for"being able to hit with his glove on " I don't know
what that was all about.I guess he didn't want anyone to
take his lucky glove .Anne Gould received a prize for
"being able to pick the best team".....Ha !We all had a blast
and then went over for supper at Pizza Delight and then
all went our separate ways.
Stay tuned for the "Scarecrow Festival" in Mahone Bay,
NS , the weekend of Oct 3rd,4th & 5th.

Happy Birthday Canada
















Happy Birthday Canada....

For the last 15 years, corvetters from RVV have joined the Town Of Oromocto Parade...Club members provided the ‘ride for the dignitaries involved. RVV member, Terry Blackburn, proudly boasts that he has been Mayor Faye Tidd’s ‘official driver many times ! This year, the Oromocto Parade went “GREEN:....the corvetting tradition has come to an end !
In recognition of the many years RVV members have been a participating in the parade, an official ‘thank you plaque was presented to Terry Blackburn and Kelly Kelly on July 1, 2008. Both Terry and Kelly spoke on behalf of RVV members. As they spoke, many spectators were paying a lot of interest to the beautiful corvettes parked at curbside - The parade may have gone green but it would seem the corvettes were missed July 1st and will be missed in future years!

Looking for Tire !


Hi Folks:
I recently replaced the wheels and tires on my Vette and am left with a set of 50% worn used tires. One of these used tires is showing the signs of improper alignment and I would like to replace it with an exact match. It is a Presidents Tire; Defender Series; P255-50-R16. If you know where I may be able to find one that is about 50% worn please contact me.

KK's new "Under the Hood " Logo















Kelly Kelly has got a new "under the hood" look this
year , and I think it looks great. Done by Debbie, I
have to get her last name and some more details
as I would love to sport the same look !Three members
of the River Valley Vettes took a short run to Morrisdale,
Sunday to welcome back Bob Cromwell from Florida
and to pick up a few items that Bob brought back.
Members on the run were Kelly Kelly & Harleigh,
Ron & Anne Gould & Tom & Lois Hiltz.

The Garwood's New Addition




















John & Dawn Garwood got a 2000
magnetic red coupe to add to his family
of vettes and can hardly wait for the snow
to go.
Here's his email he sent me !
Hi Tom
Thought you might like to see what I was to doing today.
I finally got the ice chipped away enough to get the Vette out of it's winter prison. It was frozen solid.
Charged the battery and fired them both up - sweet sounds.
Introduced the old to the new and let them warm up, but they never left the driveway :-(
So now they are sitting in the garage more than ready to go - after inspections -
This is torture....the stinkin' snow has to go away some day doesn't it??
See you soon,
John

RVV 2008 Bowling Champs
















Well, it finally happened.......RVV had to break down and bowl up to their full potential.....We decided it was time to stop sandbagging and 'bite the bullet'. We sort of heard that it didn't matter if we won or lost, the idea of winners hosting next year was over !!! RVV even lost three bowlers after the first string ! (two were previous 'stars) to "ear" problems..Thank Goodness , one of the stars performed well before she had to leave !!! ........but, RVV endured !!! Without Bill Brown there to distract us,there was a definite difference ! Moncton's top scores were: 99,94,81 and 81 for 355...having Roger and Bob really put those gals at a disadvantage :))) Actually, it was difficult to bowl when that bright distraction bouncing off Janice's left hand ..IF RVV had not 'won, I would have had to dispute it because there were times we could not see the pins/we were blinded !......The Moncton gals really did their best . By the way, because Moncton had only four bowlers, we used only the top four scores of the night from all bowlers to determine top team of the night ! - seemed fair to Lindsay and KK - who , for some reason or another took over the organizing for the 'missing in the sun Bill Brown.....Saint John must have counted gutter balls....:))they came up with 399...scores of 106, 99 and 94 108,.....seemed impossible, but Don was really a Super Star...got a strike that won him a big 'house jackpot !!!! Then, along came River Valley Vettes..must have cheated all the way - they had 120, 116, 100 and 99......The good news is that the format for hosting has changed....it will not be decided by winning or losing...it will just go from Club to Club with Moncton hosting next year's tournament!!
Seriously, it really was a fun filled evening. Please note that due to my fear of being decapitated by the bowlers involved, I deleted quite a few pictures.....So, if YOU were at the bowling but not in the pictures, say "thank you, KK"..................I actually had made a pont of taking a picture of everybody ~!!
Sure hope all who missed bowling in Saint John on March 29th know that they missed a really good night....and we missed you all, too !!!! Look forward to seeing you as soon as the snow disappears...or, at least at Moncton for the ACCC meeting !!!
Thanks to CSNB for hosting us. The pizza was delicious and there was enough for everybody !!!!! It is so much fun to have all clubs having fun together !

taken at the Linger Lodge following the show.
Three River Valley Vette members reading the menu.
Corvette members from various clubs in Florida but all members of Corvettes
Anonymous.
John and Linda Duncan posing for a shot.
Bob and Kevin honeymooning in Florida. Guess those flowers and the
proposal on Deer Island must have worked.
Four more shots taken at the Run For The Horses....Lipizzaner
Stallion performance in Myakka, Florida Saturday, March 8th.
Four horses performing in unison. This is called dressage when they
perform to commands.
The Lipizzaner horses start out brown but change to white later on. Bob's
travelling companion, Brenda.
Lipizzaner stallion performing it's famous four feet off the ground kick.
