BOARD POSITIONS

Gary Blum

Gary Blum

President

Gary served 30 years in the Air Force; then another 14 years in AF civil service.  Since joining TCA in 2014, Gary & Lyn enjoy driving our 2007 Atomic Orange Convertible and our 2015 Shark Gray Stingray Coupe corvettes and participating in TCA activities!  The TCA is a “social club” of terrific people who share a passion for corvettes – and a commitment to our community  through our support of charities in our local area.  As our motto says, “Come for the cars, stay for the people!”  You’ll meet great people and make new friends at TCA Drive & Dines, Parades, Caravans to Bowling Green, Car Shows, and our TCA annual car show.   In addition to TCA activities, Gary is a member of the San Antonio Food Bank, San Antonio Rose Society and enjoys ballroom dancing, woodworking, fishing and gardening.  It is my privilege to serve the 280+ members of TCA on the 2018 leadership team.

Andrew Golden

Board Member/Officer-At-Large

I’ve known and loved Corvettes for a long time but my guardian insurance man built the fear of huge premiums into me early. It wasn’t until I met Kathleen and we shared a love for Corvettes that the subject ever came up. Since she wouldn’t get on a Harley with me, the compromise was a Corvette. We purchased our Spiral Gray 2004 in June of that year with just 5 miles on it. Since then, we have over 130,000 miles on “Syd”.
We have gone cross country twice and lots of trips in between with our Corvette friends. We’ve done rallies, autocross, Bowling Green, Willow Springs track days, Big Bend and more than one car show. We’ve met some pretty cool people along the way. A great car to meet great people with.

Lou Pisano

Lou Pisano

Vice-President

Since High School, I have always been passionate about cars and never dreamed of being a Corvette owner. However, my wife (Maureen) and I are happy enthusiast with a 2005 Magnetic Red Metallic C6 and a C7 2014 Crystal Red Stingray. We can attest, through the ownership experience (Fiat, Triumph, Nissan, Infiniti), that a Corvette is the only true Sports Car! We joined TCA 4 1/2 years ago, shortly after my retirement (and our first Corvette purchase). TCA has enhanced my retirement by providing a whole range of fun activities such as car shows, Drive & Dines, parades, caravans (2) to Bowing Green, Ky., our annual car show and other social events with fellow members. More importantly, we have made a lot of friends that share the same passion and interest we have. As an Officer at Large, I would welcome any comments/ suggestions/ideas that you might have regarding our club. It is my pleasure to serve as an Officer/Board Member of the TCA.

Watching Route 66 was when Sharon fell in love with Corvettes.  Marrying Bob while attending Texas Tech almost 50 years ago started an adventure in Air Force life traveling the world.

Lyn Blum

Lyn Blum

Board Member/Officer-At-Large

I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and that’s where I met Gary, 46 years ago. Together we spent over 30 years moving around for his Air Force career. While stationed in Biloxi, MS I trained as a dental assistant and spent over 40 years in the dental profession working in all positions of the dental field except for “dentist”. I retired 2 years ago and have been concentrating on the business I established, Heirloom Veils of San Antonio, making custom wedding veils using vintage jewelry. I also sew and make other things such as steering wheel and air filter covers for newer and classic Corvettes. I have enjoyed being in the TCA and getting to know a whole new set of friends who enjoy their cars. Gary and I also love to travel in our RV and have shared this experience with fellow TCA members who are also RV owners.

My husband and I joined the TCA in 2009, shortly after we bought our C6, and I’m an Officer at Large for 2017.  I currently drive a 2015 Crystal Red Stingray that’s pure joy.  The club offers so many fun activities to choose from, but my particular favorites are the Drive ‘n Dine events, and just hanging with the coolest kids in town.

Rani Hobgood

Rani Hobgood

Officer at Large

I have a goal to drive my Vette as fast as I landed my airliner – hello Big Bend Open Road Race! I enjoy track and open road racing and my 2003 Coupe is the perfect solution for both. After market exhaust, upgraded struts, harness bar, five point seat belts, fire extinguisher and racing tires completed all the requirements to feed the speedometer gods. TCA provides a great social circle to share road time and adventures with fellow Corvette enthusiasts and more fun than anyone can shake a spare tire at!
