The Linn Creek Corvette Association's fifth annual Corvette Meet and Greet was recently hosted by Hulett Chevrolet/Buick/GMC in Camdenton, Missouri. The Friday night pre-meeting was held at Lil Rizzo's Italian Restaurant at the Premium Outlet Mall, and 42 Corvettes showed up to get their respective car show registration materials, or to sign-up, and take advantage of the great food.
The weather on Saturday was perfect and the Corvette owners turned out in force. There were 116 registered Corvettes representing all six Corvette generations. There were a total of 12 different Corvette clubs represented including a group of 14 Corvettes from the Greater New Orleans Corvette Club. Participants came from all across Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, as well as Louisiana. Out-of-town participants outnumbered locals, so the local economy was boosted by hotel stays, shopping, food and gasoline purchases from these welcomed visitors.
Each participating Corvette owner received an event T-shirt, a goodie bag full of great items, lunch for two and one or more outstanding attendance prizes. The show raised money for The Wounded Warrior Project and Operation Christmas Stockings for Soldiers. The event was open to the public, and countless spectators were on the lot throughout the day.
Since 2013 is the 60th Anniversary of Corvette, Hulett rolled out a brand new 2013 60th Anniversary Corvette Grand Sport convertible, which is now on display in their showroom, looking for a new home.
