Noon to Whenever – It Was A PARTY!
Precision Alignment & Brake in Temecula…
A Proud Sponsor of COTV….
Invited Corvettes of Temecula Valley & the
Drifters to a “Party at the Shop”.
Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Sodas were grilled
by the big BBQer himself, Scott
(not the sodas, of course).
The DJ was Spinning Tunes, which means he was spinning in his chair because those big Wurlitzers are
hard to fit into a Vette, and the Female Vocalist
First Annual Precision Brake and Alignment Customer Appreciation Day
We try to show our appreciation to our sponsors by patronizing their businesses in exchange for their generosity to our Club. Most of them have some connection to what we do as a members of COTV, which means they provide a service necessary to maintain our precious Corvettes. This makes it easier to choose one of them when we need tires or repairs. Sometimes it is as easy as a whole group of COTV members going to eat at a restaurant which has chosen to be a sponsor. Sometimes it is a little more difficult, like having to go to the dentist. Sometimes it is a little more complicated, like getting help to plan a cruise to parts unknown.
However, it is rare that a sponsor chooses to show their appreciation for our patronage in ways beyond writing a check. Scott Dittmer, owner of Precision Brake and Alignment, decided to show how much he appreciates both COTV and the Drifters (a Murrieta-based hot rod club) by having the first of what he hopes becomes a yearly event – a Customer Appreciation Day at his shop. The weather could not have been better. It was slightly cooler than we had experienced in recent days, but bright and sunny.
Between the two groups, there was a list of RSVPs totaling over 75 cars. It turns out the Drifters are even more prone to being early birds than COTV and were there to set up their beautiful cars and organize the parking and the food tables. Members of both clubs signed up to bring side dishes, salads, and desserts to supplement the barbecue items and drinks provided by Scott.
There was some overlap between the two club memberships (for instance, Ted Carli and Dayton Taylor are members of both) and also an overlap in car interests. Some Drifters brought their Corvettes and our own Hans Boers drove his two-tone Dodge to blend in with the other vintage cars. The time set aside for the event was “noon to whenever” but from what we could see was really “10am to who knows when” as everyone mingled before the food was to be served.
This sounds like the start of a new tradition, one we can all get used to. Thanks to Scott for being a great sponsor and setting the bar very high!!
