VCRA ANNOUNCES 2017 “ALL STARS FOR AUTISM” RALLY DATE AND LOCATION!!
VCRA is pleased to announce the tentative schedule for the 11th annual “All Stars for Autism” vintage car rally presented by Hemmings Motor News!! The event will be held on April 26th thru 30th, 2017 in Joplin, Missouri. A new host hotel has been chosen this year, the LaQuinta Inn & Suites. This venue has just undergone a complete renovation, offering first class accommodations as well as an Old Chicago restaurant, onsite parking, complimentary scrumptious breakfast and totally updated rooms…and, of course, the now famous VCRA nightly reception. This phase of the rally preparation has just been finalized, and now the fun of preparing the rally course begins. As a little tickler, I can tell you that you will be traveling in four (4) different states, have a least one hosted luncheon on the rally course, a hosted welcome luncheon, a hosted awards luncheon and will travel about 700 miles during the event. As the course preparation progresses, we will give you web site updates and schedule revisions.

2017 All Stars for Autism
April 26th -
THE NORTHEAST RALLY Club”s ..annual charity “Pumpkin Run” rally went off without a hitch according to event coordinator Bob Bryan. When the smoke had cleared it was the 1916 Hudson hill climber of Doug and Dana Sharp besting the field of 36 entrants posting a 17.16 second winning score. Nudged into second by a mere 1.27 seconds was the ever dangerous team of Gary & Jean Ann Martin in their potent 1964 Chevy Nova with a score of 18.43. Third place was captured by Scott & Sarah Hudson in a 1954 Chevy Bel Aire.
The Rookie team of Olivia & Genna Gentry (you better be watching these kids, looks like they are serious!) won that division with a 1m27.3 score in only their second event. Looks like that 1964 Dodge Dart convertible is working for them!.
Bob Bryan reported that the event was a great success in that they were able to donate $6,800 to their charity. Great going, guys!!..and gals!! Keep up the good work!
BCCA (Branson Collector Car Auction)..recently held their 38th annual fall auction in Branson, Missouri, with over 250 vehicles in the offering, everything from helicopters/ boats to cars, like a spectacular 1953 Kurtis K2 500..”something for everyone” is the key ingredient from these folks!!! VCRA is allowed to have a booth at these two day auction events so that we are able to get the word out, and, on occasion, even talk a new rookie into coming to a rally!
Auction owners, Jim & Kathy Cox have been VCRA’s largest donor to our charity over the past 10 years, and this time was no exception. Jim & Kathy hold an ”Autism Charity” auction the evening prior to each of their two annual events that benefits the VCRA “Autism Charity”. An invitation only event, it is attended by all the who’s who in the old car lover world…and a great time of food, friendship and fun fuel the anticipation of the auction. As you may already know, the old car folks in this world are some of the most generous people that walk the face of this earth. And this auction event continues to prove that…Very kind folks from far and near donate items that are then auctioned off for the charity. And then, very generous folks buy these items at auction, all the time paying “too much”, but very aware that all proceeds are going to a great cause!! Our sincere thanks to those that take the time and effort to donate to the cause, and, also, to those that bid and buy!!! And to Jim & Kathy, and crew, thank you so much for all you do for us…it is because of folks like you, and your auction followers, that we are able to continue to meet our charity goals! Thanks to you all!!!
SPRING RALLY PLANS ARE SHAPING UP…as the date ( April 26th – 30th, 2017) draws closer, the 11th annual “All Stars For Autism” rally is beginning to shape up. Just confirmed is the Friday destination / lunch stop. In the tradition of VCRA events, we always strive to present a fun-
