Hard to believe that 2017 is now a part of history and we are less than 5 months away from the last weekend of June!  Bloomington Gold staff is busy planning a weekend that will take your breath away. To start with, 2018 Bloomington Gold will experience an L88 Explosion!

 

The L88 is known for having one of the most powerful engines that Chevrolet ever put in a Corvette.  Bloomington Gold is going to have 50 of the finest L88’s produced from 1967-1969 on display. Maybe “on display” is an understatement; if everything goes as planned, we are going to show you just how powerful and amazing the L88 is!

 

I would also like to personally welcome Bethany Brucker to our staff as the Judging Operation Manager. I think you will enjoy her warm and humorous personality. Bloomington Gold Charlotte last October was her first event with Bloomington Gold and she definitely proved she is ready to jump in with both feet.

 

Be sure to read on, as there is much more about the 2018 Show throughout this issue of the REView.

 

Happy Trails,

Guy

WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST SPONSOR:

Meet Bethany - Our New Judging Operations Manager!

Welcome Bethany!

 

Join us in welcoming our newest staff member, Bethany Brucker.  Beth will take over as Judging Operations Manager for Bloomington Gold.  For those of you that met her at Bloomington Gold Charlotte this past October, you already know that judging operations at Bloomington Gold is in good hands!

 

Beth fell in love with Corvettes when her older brother bought a ’78 shortly before she turned 16.  Much to her dismay, he didn’t let her drive it very much but, when he did, she loved every minute.

 

Before joining Bloomington Gold this fall, she was in the accounting field for over 30 years; some of them she spent working side-by-side Bloomington Gold’s Cathy Winters.  Beth currently resides in central Illinois with her husband Doug.  They have four children and a grandson.  When she isn’t working, Beth enjoys spending her time cooking, reading, antiquing and even watching dirt track racing in her hometown.  We look forward to the energy and creativity that Beth brings to Bloomington Gold.

 

Feel free to welcome Beth at Beth@BloomingtonGold.com
