RALEIGH, NC – (NCR-SCCA) – The 2011 NCR Awards Dinner was held Saturday night, January 7, 2012 at Caffe Luna in downtown Raleigh. The food was a sumptuous buffet, a smorgasbord of delights from chilled shrimp and smoked salmon, fruit and cheese appetizers to grilled chicken, grilled steak, and penne pasta with a choice of a cream sauce and spinach or a rich marinara with grated parmesan. Nobody went away hungry! Many thanks to Bibi Tucker Harrison for her hard work in pulling this event together.
RALEIGH, NC (NCR-SCCA) – The North Carolina Region was well-represented at the Carolina Collector Car Fest held in Raleigh at the State Fairgrounds over the weekend of November 11 – 13, 2011. Two members, Sam Fouse and Boz Marchi, graciously volunteered to display their cars, fresh from 1st place wins at the Goblins Go. Sam’s meticulously-prepared MX-3 was the hit of gear heads from all over, who marveled at the Dennis Shaw-built motor and the superb fabrication by Dan Robeson, both Triangle Chapter members. Boz Marchi’s lovely blue F500 attracted show-goers of all ages, quite literally from age five to seventy-five. The older gentleman even took notes. We may just see him at a future event!
