On Saturday April 27, 2013 members of the Free State Corvette Club went to The National Military Medical Center to pick up Wounded Warriors and provide them with a day of fun away from the hospital -- A Wounded Warrior Car Rallye.




The members gather at Long Gate for the cruise to Walter Reed


The members get final instructions for the route to Walter Reed before "wheels up"


Members and warriors look over the rallye questions at Walter Reed. Jim shows off the

The teams enjoy the special lunch Buffet supplemented by the Twist and Turn Tavern 







Pictured above are 16 of the 17 happy teams as they arrived at the Twist and Turn Tavern. Mary Predenkoski jumped right in to help with scoring so I missed a picture of her and Steve, sorry!





And the winners are....

Fifth place - Joe and Kate Daley


Fourth place - Gabe Fontana and friend


Third place - Steve & Mary Predenkoski and followers. I was going to penalize them for each of the eight extra eyes but then I figured they were more of a hindrance, so I didn't.


Second place - Pete Pedersen and Friend


First Place - Sean O'Sullivan and Friend


A very good time was had by all. There was a lot of bonding going on out there on the roads of Howard County.


There was a lot of work to make this event a success. We'd like to thank Jim & Pat Citro for pre-running the Rallye, Joe Daley for all the work on the shirts and hats, Mary Predenkoski for help with scoring, all of the members who signed up and paid for the event and purchased shirts and hats(some didn't even get to run) and Kevin Bell of Win Kelly Chevrolet and the Twist and Turn Tavern for giving us a great deal on the lunch. Thanks also to those who didn't run the rallye but bought shirts and hats to support the cause. 


Special thanks to Ron Williams and Jeff and Leslie Steiner for their generous monetary contributions to the event. All proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
