BLOOMINGTON, IL January 12, 2007—The Solid Axle Corvette Club, hosted by the Great Lakes Chapter is holding their National Convention in St. Charles this year. Over 120 C1 enthusiasts from all over the United States will arrive in St. Charles June 11 and travel to Pheasant Run Resort later in the week for Bloomington Gold, June 14-17.
Many activities are planned for the SACC Convention including visiting the old Meadowdale International Raceway where many C1’s raced in from 1958-1969. It’s now what they term a “ghost track,” some say you can even hear the roaring of drag racers if you listen closely.
After a banquet to honor former SACC President Noland Adams and a Corvette Cruise to Lake Geneva, they’re off to Bloomington Gold to showcase the original Chevrolet Corvette. President of the Great Lakes Chapter Chuck Stika hopes since the convention is in the Midwest it will attract more people from the East and West coasts and the SACC will have a good showing at Bloomington Gold as well. They expect between 40-85 Solid Axle Corvettes that week. Member of the Solid Axle Club will park in their own club parking area on the golf course at Pheasant Run for the Bloomington Gold show.
After the Bloomington Gold Road Tour on Saturday, the SACC will host a Dinner at the Mill Race Inn in Downtown St. Charles. This dinner is open to the public, but you must be pre-registered. Visit one of the SACC booths at Bloomington Gold to sign up.
Bloomington Gold will celebrate its 35th show this year. For more information, visit their website at www.bloomingtongold.com.
