 LOOKING FOR A SPEEDO? We here at VCRA try to locate and purchase all the used speedos we can to pass on to those that are entering the sport..however, it seems with the surge of Rookie teams each year, the demand has exceeded the supply. We will continue to try to find the used ones, and, in the meantime, our good friend Bill Croker has been successful in his program of finding, and making available, used Timewise speedos. If in need, also try Bill for a speedo at www.whcroker@gv.net .  He is the guy that initiated the “Rookie Mentor” program, so you can believe what he tells you!!

This is Champion’s 60th anniversary, and we will be going to the plant in Clinton, Missouri on Friday, May 6th, to be a part of this momentous occasion. Hold on to your oil can..this will be big!!!

SOMETIMES, BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD (GREAT) PEOPLE!!..and that is when they truly need our support!!! Our dear friend Jean Ann Martin recently began the battle with breast cancer. Anyone that has attended a VCRA or Greatrace rally in the past few years know the #38 Team of Gary and Jean Ann…perhaps the greatest ambassadors for the old car rally sport ever!! But now, Jean Ann needs all the support we can gather…please put her in your thoughts and prayers so we can help her win this battle.  Knowing Jean Ann, the fight has just begun..and she will win!!!

HEMMIMNGS MOTOR NEWS SIGNS ON AS TITLE SPONSOR FOR 2016..VCRA announces that, for the 10th consecutive year, Hemmings Motor News has agreed to the title sponsor position for the VCRA 2016 rally season. We are indeed grateful and honored that Jim Menneto, president and publisher at Hemmings, took a huge risk in 2007 on an unknown entity known as VCRA, and came on board as the title sponsor for the first ever HEMMINGS CHALLENGE Vintage Car Rally in Branson, Missouri. From that point on, Jim has continually supported us in our quest to present world class rallies across the country, which, as it turns out, gave VCRA the credibility among rally teams across the country that has allowed us to grow, and reach our charity goals year after year! Our sincere thanks to Jim and his team!!

VCRA SELECTS “RACE FOR AUTISM” CHARITY RECIPIENTS.. The following schools have been chosen to receive donations from the 2015 VCRA ANNUAL “Race For Autism” fund. As always, this could not even be possible without the continued contributions of our great sponsors and the overwhelming support of our VCRA and Greatrace participants and supporters that allow us to continually reach our charity goals!! You have made it possible to make life a whole lot better for thousands of kids affected with autism..and for that, we thank you!!

The schools chosen this year are as follows..more details to follow as the official presentations are made by our VCRA representatives.


The Lionheart School in Alpharetta, GA - $25,000.00  www.thelionheartschool.com  


Founded in 2000, this 501C3 non- profit organization has made significant progress using best practices for working with children with autism. All programs continue to be integral parts of “Lionhearts For Life”, which involves the community in preparing students for post-school success and future employment placements. Also key in our selection was the fact that Georgia has a very large contingent of VCRA racers who have continually supported VCRA..those of you that follow this sport will recognize these folks..Chad & Jennie Caldwell and Beth Gentry & Jody Knowles of Newnan…Billy Cothern from Cumming..David Haverty out of Dunwoody..Todd Merrill, Alpharatta, Taylor Merrill, LaGrange and John Hausmann from Johns Creek…might have missed someone, but you get the point..if not for the generosity of folks like this, this would not be possible. So thanks to you all!


Paths To Independence in Bartlesville, OK - $9,000.00 www.pathstoindependence.org

 

A 501-C3 organization that was established to provide service to children with autism and their families. It is an accredited PK-12 private school structured to provide instruction in all areas including communication, social skills, recreation and, of great importance, independent living.


F.A.C.T. in Virginia Beach, VA - $6,500.00 www.camp4autism.org  


Founded nine years ago, this 501-C3 this program supports hundreds of kids with autism, especially children of military families. We see it as our responsibility to assist them with an ongoing support system as they continue their excellent work.


Highland Park Central, Topeka, KS - $1,000.00 www.highland-park-school.org


This is a pilot program for VCRA as it is a public school that is in dire need of sensory items to support the children there that are affected with autism. Sadly, the public schools system does not see fit to support their needs…so, we agreed to lend a helping hand.

THE BRANSON AUCTION ANNOUNCES SPRING AUCTION DATE.. Jim and Kathy Cox, owners of the Branson Auction, has scheduled the spring auction event in Branson, Missouri for April 15 & 16, 2016. Jim and Kathy, in addition to presenting a premier antique, classic, vintage and muscle car auction that “will have something for everyone”,  is also one of VCRA’s major contributors to our charity. At each auction, both spring and fall, Jim allows us booth space to expose folks to the VCRA, and he holds an “Autism Awareness” charity auction at each of the events with all proceeds going to the VCRA charity. This support has a tremendous impact on the success of our charity goals. Thanks to Jim, Kathy and crew!! And remember…come to Branson and have a great time at one of the great auction events in the mid-west.
