Default Corvetteforum Rally Relay Banner

We have a new Corvetteforum banner courtesy of Internet Brands (see attached picture) and we're working with Corvetteforum’s regional events coordinators to send the banner on a Corvette road trip.

The idea is to pass the banner along from CF member to CF member across the country, making stops at large and small Corvette events along the way and documenting with pictures and text the journey as it progresses.

Of course, we’ll want each participant in the Corvetteforum Banner Rally Relay journey to sign the banner during its travels. We’re working on decals or static cling stickers to put on the Corvettes that are actually involved in escorting the banner in the relay.

DebRedZR1 will be the Corveteforum Banner Rally Relay Captain and the banner is being shipped to her in Western Michigan. The list of events suggested for CF Banner Relay stops during the coming 12 months includes:


Corvetteforum Rally Relay Banner
Tentative Schedule
Help fill in the gaps!
  • Early July: Michigan and Illinois (Being coordinated by DebRedZR1 and dahogan)
  • July 23-25: NCRS National Convention – Hampton, VA
  • Aug. 3: Columbus Cars & Coffee cruise to Corvettes in the Park, Columbus, OH to Whitehall, OH
  • Aug. 10: 24th Annual All-Corvette Cruise-In, Manassas, VA
  • Aug 23-25: Corvettes at Carlisle, Carlisle, PA
  • Aug. 29-31: National Corvette Museum 19th Anniversary Celebration, Bowling Green, KY
  • Sept. 19-22: Corvette Funfest, Effingham, IL
  • Sept. 19-22: Vettes and Jets on the Lexington, Corpus Christi, TX
  • Oct. 14: Corvetteforum visit to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, TN
  • June, 2014: Bloomington Gold, Champaign, IL

We hope you’ll help fill in the gaps in time and distance with suggestions on other stops you want to include in the banner’s Corvette road trip across the country. It would make sense to try and schedule CF Rally Relay Banner visits and hand-offs in snow-prone areas during warmer months, but the itinerary is up to you and those willing to escort the banner.

Post your suggestions in this thread or pass them along to the DebRedZR1 and the regional events coordinator in your area. Work with Deb, your RC and each other to coordinate pick-up and pass-off locations, dates and times.

If there isn’t a regional events coordinator in your area and you’re willing to help, just let us know.
The proposed guidelines for the Corvetteforum Rally Relay Banner go something like this:
  1. The Rally Relay Banner can only be carried and passed to registered members of Corvetteforum.com
  2. The Rally Relay Banner can only be moved in a Corvette.
  3. All actual Corvetteforum members are eligible to sign the Banner while it is in transit, but just one signature per Forum Member is allowed on the Banner (Name and CF User ID).
  4. A photo or photos of the members involved in the drive should be submitted along with a story and the route traveled by the Rally Relay Banner. Submit these stories to a "Rally Relay Banner Travels" sticky thread in an appropriate section – maybe National Events.

Are you interested? Do you have suggestions on how to make the project work? Just let us know.

I have a spreadsheet I am working on with everyone who wants to help. PMing me your event and dates or places you will be is the easiest way for me to keep things updated July 21 we will kick things off in Wixom Michigan. Looking for someone in that area or will be in West Michigan who can get it to the NCRS in VA July 23-25

2014 Kissimmee NCRS meet. It would be nice to get the banner somewhere south of Virginia.

Yes, I'll carry it.

Not much in Atlanta, particularly now. That's why I volunteered Kissimmee.

Looks like the banner is stuck in Michigan until someone volunteers to get it to another location. Please coordinate with DebRedZR1.

What would be NICE is if someone who is going somewhere would get me their info and I will ship it to them as long as they will be responsible to get it to another event so I can keep track of it and keep it moving

Carlisle was a blast! I spent 3 hours in Instsllation Ally. My new exhaust system sounds GREAT! Well worth the trip to Corvettes At Carlisle. I didn't meet any members but made lots of friends.
