  Dan Gyoerkoe, Executive Director of the Antique and Classic Society, says, “The original idea was presented to me by John Heiderich, President of the Blue Ridge Chapter. John and Dana Anthony (VP) have been involved from the very beginning. We met in person in Racine to finalize many of the details.”
