Mike Thompson    Elvira Thompson

Your Arkansas Captains for the 25th Anniversary National Corvette Museum Caravan are Mike and Elvira Thompson of Little Rock, AR. We have been involved in each caravan through the years. We have served as volunteer workers, Local Leaders, and Co-Captains. This will be the first time we have served as Captains.

We enjoy attending and/or competing in regional Corvette events and for more than 25 years have been proud coordinators of a Corvette event in Eureka Springs, AR.

The Caravan is just a year away and things are beginning to fall in place. After communication with surrounding state captains we know that two Texas caravans and the Arizona/New Mexico caravan will join the Arkansas participants at Bale Chevrolet in Little Rock, AR beginning at 4 pm on August 27, 2019. Bale will provide food and drink for all caravan participants. At present, 400 Corvettes are expected.

After an over-night stay in area hotels, Bale will host a police-escorted send-off on the morning of the 28th. We are scheduled to depart Bale at 9 am.

All Arkansas Corvette owners are invited to come by Bale and show your support for the National Corvette Museum and the caravan participants.

If you plan to participate in the caravan to Bowling Green, you must first register with the NCM for the 25th Anniversary Celebration. Registration will begin shortly after Labor Day 2018.

Our thanks to Bale Chevrolet of Little Rock, which has supported caravan participation in Arkansas since the NCM’s beginning, for again agreeing to be a sponsor for the up-coming caravan.

We will also be glad to coordinate with other caravans that will be coming through Arkansas.
