The 12th Anniversary of the annual Father's Day Cruse and Picnic is again scheduled for a wonderful drive to Cottonwood.
The route via Skull Valley worked well last year, so I've updated the route accordingly to bypass downtown Prescott square.
The last few years, several of us have driven around the corner from the park and grabbed a cold beer at THAT brewery.  
This is the weekend before Father's Day so everyone can still celebrate the holiday with family.
The picnic destination in Cottonwood's Garrison Park has plenty of picnic bench seating under a huge ramada, and additional shade trees for those that want a true blanket picnic.
You are required to bring your own sack lunch for a picnic.  
There's one large sized ramada with 6 picnic tables, a nearby restroom, and a playground.  
WHEN: Saturday, June 11th (Weekend before Father's Day)
Destination: Garrison Park, Cottonwood, AZ (Picnic spot)
Route: Google Maps Link (Also see below)
Who: ACE members post up in this thread if you can make it, I'll update the 1st post with the list.

This is pretty much the same as a “Cars & Coffee” but with additional perks. . .
There has been some discussion lately among members that MOST of the activity is in the EAST Valley (and usually early morning) and MOST of those events are on Saturdays.
Soooo. . .
in recognition of the fact that there are members in the WEST valley, that not everyone can participate on Saturdays, and some folks don’t want to get up at the crack of dawn to attend a car event, we are taking a stab at something new:
Vettes & Vittles Sunday Brunch
J & T’s Copper Penny Tavern
10765 W Peoria Ave
Sun City, AZ 85351
Corvette friendly entrance off 107th Avenue, and we have the entire parking lot to ourselves.
Indoor and outdoor seating, full kitchen, adult beverages.
All you sports fans - they have TV's with Football, NASCAR, etc., so you can't use that as an excuse to stay home! 
This event can grow or die, totally depends on member interest and participation.
We could grow to include an informal car show, since we have the entire parking lot.  Depends on interest.  Tavern owners are open to future enhancements, depending on our participation.
WANTED  - looking for cruise ideas and/or leaders to host a short cruise before the brunch each month, ending at the Copper Penny.
Speak up, show up!  See you there!

ACE Window Decals
Show your ACE membership with a fashionable window decal on your Vette!    
We have found a new vendor for ACE window decals and have purchased a new supply.
Charge for a decal is $2,  which covers the cost of having them made. 
Available colors are:
Silver Metallic
If you would like a window decal for your Vette, post up here or send me a PM.
The decals look like this:

. . . and, before anyone asks – yes, our previous supply of decals we did hand out for free.  That is because we received that supply for free, from our old vendor who went out of business. We didn’t pay for them, so we didn’t charge members for them.  Unfortunately, we are out of those now and had to buy more. . .

The Route 66 Fun Run is back! If you've been on it, you know it's a blast- if you haven't then give it some thought It's a low cost deal and well worth it. Get to Seligman on Friday, drive to Kingman and the big car show on Saturday, drive to Topock on Sunday, then home.
My plan, as usual is to go to Seligman via Yarnell, avoid interstates, and get to Seligman that afternoon. Happy to group up for that run with anyone. Same for the return from Topock on Sunday.
Here are some pictures from a previous run: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qTeaaUuTmhoDFntw8

It has come to my attention that Bromley corvette has suckered enough and over charged lots of customers to open another shop in the east valley in Gilbert. This IS a huge red flag I'm raising, just letting all you corvette owners out there to stay away, far away from that shop. You have been warned... There are plenty of ACE members that know this shops reputation.
