Picnic 8/15 SHE CRUISE – 2010
Boston Susan Kroner
Waterfront Once again STCC ladies, we showed the guys that we too can drive our Vettes just
Cruise 8/22 as well as they can. No problem!! There was a great turnout and the weather
cooperated for a beautiful sunny evening. We cruised 14 miles through the back
Mystery roads, past the horse farms, around the curves, and up and down over the hills to
Cruise 10/2 or
10/9 Al's Café in Bethel Park.
And now for the other “LADIES”, you never fail to surprise us all with your
Steel Town’s imagination, creativity and strutting your "Wild Side"!! Very entertaining!!
Talent contest Thanks to the members of Steel Town who joined me for the evening, and a special
11/16 thanks to the “Ladies”, as without their participation, the “She Cruise” would not be
a success. A wonderful night was enjoyed by all!!

Put Your Old Cell Phones to a good Cause:
Please bring your old cell phones to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project and give them to Jo Post, she'll do the rest. ACT
(a community group of volunteers) has donated over $1100.00 to help these heroes since January 2009, so it really adds
up, plus we keep cell phones out of our landfills at the same time! Thanks, Jo Post

STEEL TOWN CORVETTE CLUB'S GOT TALENT CONTEST Jo Post
The Talent contest had to be postponed due to the technical challenges of putting on such a grand show in a park. The
new show date will be November 16th at Peter's Place in Bridgeville. This will give all the contestants more time to perfect
their acts and others to rise up to the challenge!! It will also give more time to round up more prizes to reward these brave
contestants for their effort.
As of this newsletter, we already have two awesome prizes:
1. A two night stay at none other than the Windsor Quality Suites in Windsor, Canada (for those who don't know, we have
an annual cruise there) - Valued at over $300.00.
2. Dinner for two in The Crystal Room at Omni Bedford Springs Resort, Bedford, PA.
I've eaten there and stayed at the Resort....delicious food and excellent amenities. While there you could plan extra time to
visit the quaint little town of Bedford for shopping and fun.
Please call Jo Post 724-218-1020 with questions or see me at the next cruise.

New Castle 2010- Marian Tartaglione
Anyone who attended the New Castle Back to the 50‟s Weekend will agree that this is truly one of the best cruises of
the summer. The event goes from Thursday night of the 4 of July weekend and goes through Sunday. Parking under
the trees throughout the park are some of the nicest cars you will ever see. The food vendors are wonderful Pizza,
blooming onions, apple dumplings with ice cream, Gyros, Meatball Hoagies, one is better than the other!
The entertainment is Outstanding with
The Voges, The Jaggers, The Holidays, Johnny Angles & the Halos, The Dorals to name a few. Friday and Saturday
nights finish out @ 9 with a dance in the large banquet room with a live band. All this only costs $25 for 4 wrist bands
for all 4 days if you register early. We even were graced by some Canadians this year! I hope this will be considered
for one of the Steel Town events next year! We had about 20 attending this year!
Our grandson, Danny had a blast, dancing to the oldies! Louie and Joe had to take a break! Love was in the air!
Vintage Grand Prix- Liz Zalewski
This weekend was the highlight of the Vintage Grand Prix with its tribute to Donna Mae and the Corvette.
Spectators and drivers alike braved the heat and the rain. We were able to parade our corvettes as Donna Mae
looked down on us and smiled as she watched her car and others show her how much she is missed and what
a impact her life had.
There's a new corvette dog in town and his name is SCARGE pronounced sarge. At four months he attended the
Vintage Grand Prix with his master. He even owns a red T-shirt to match his owners corvette.
If you see me at a cruise come and say Hi I love to meet people.
