President - Cat Woods

Cat was born and raised in Maryland and has lived in Bel Air since 1990. She enjoyed teaching at Bel Air Middle School for 14 years. Since teaching, she has been a stay-at-home mom to 4 dogs, 3 cats, 1 pig, 2 human kids and her husband, Mike.

Vice-President - Derrin Ruschell

Derrin Ruschell was raised on Corvettes and classic cars, with his dad buying a 1980 Corvette in 1992, when he was six. Two years later, his dad bought a 1961 Corvette, which he inherited in 2011. After falling in love with driving it (and driving it as much in one year as his dad did in fifteen), he bought a 1979 Corvette that he daily drives, putting 10,000 miles on it every year.

His love of Corvettes has spread to his family, with his wife, Ellon, buying a 1976 Corvette, his mom buying a 2013 Corvette, and his father-in-law buying a 1987 Corvette (that now belongs to his wife). He also enjoys bringing these cars back to life, recently finishing a 1975 Corvette for his mom and purchasing a 1979 Corvette that needed saving.

He and Ellon were both raised in Maryland and moved to Jarrettsville in 2012 after buying a house with enough garage space for their cars.

In addition to the Bel Air Corvette Club, he is a member of the DeLorean Mid-Atlantic club (serving as an officer for four years), Buick Owners of Maryland, and is a former member of Free State Corvette Club and Solid-Axle Corvette Club.

He also enjoys playing guitar, working in his recording studio, and driving various classic cars.

Governor - Mike Woods

Michael is originally from the deep south - outside of Atlanta. He graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis in 1986 and served for 20 years as a Navy radar submarine officer and a Pentagon staff officer. Michael graduated from George Mason School of Law in 2006 and is an attorney at Winston & Straw LLP in Washington, D. C. Michael lives in Bel Air with Cat and far too many grown children and animals. He loves driving his red 2007 Corvette coupe - when Cat isn't driving it.

Secretary - Paula Senanes

Paula was born and raised in Baltimore county. She taught French for eleven years and met her husband Nick when she changed careers to work for IRS. Both Paula and Nick retired from the IRS and are enjoying their time together.

She moved to Harford County in 2014 and bought her first corvette, a beautiful white with red interior C4 in 2014. Paula claims that purchasing her Corvette was a requirement before marrying her best friend and Corvette enthusiast Nick Senanes. She put some fancy new wheels on that C4 before plunging into a very memorable Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Paula loves married life, walking neighborhood dogs and taking care of decorating two homes. She especially enjoys activities with the Corvette club.

Treasurer - Nelson Smith

One of the original members of the Bel Air Corvette Club (when it was founded in 1973), Nelson has lived in Harford County all his life and now lives in Jarrettsville, MD with his wife Sandy. He has four sons and 5 grand children that are spread out from Bel Air to Mobile AL, to Copenhagen, Denmark, and San Diego, CA. For 45 years, Nelson and his brother have co-owned Smith Hardware in Jarrettsville and are still active in the day-to-day operation.

Nelson owns a 1965 C2 green-green convertible he purchased in 1973 thanks to George Gallant, one of the founders of the Bel Air Corvette Club. In 2014, the '65 was retired from autocrossing and high speed track time to be restored for shows - no more fast laps around Summit Point raceway for this beauty. Since 2006, Nelson has owned a Pewter 2000 C5 that was purchased for autocrossing and track time.

Sergeant-At-Arms - Bob Gutowski

Bob and his wife Carol have been members of BACC for 9 years. We were raised and currently live in Baltimore County.  We have been married for 40 years. We have two children and 3 grandsons. After retiring after 42 years as a Supervisor for Amtrak, it was time to have some fun. I always wanted a Corvette since my first ride in one back in high school. It took me four years of searching, I finally found my Corvette, a 2005, Daytona Sunset Orange, Z-51. My wife and I enjoy the car shows and events. But most of all we enjoy the people in the club. 

Membership Chair - Henry Jones

Henry was born and raised in Baltimore City and moved to Baltimore County in 1965. In 2004, he and Jackie Dryden moved to Forest Hill in Harford County. They have been members of the Bel Air Corvette Club since 2005.

Henry retired from Vulcan Hart in 2003 where he was a manufacturing engineer for 40 years. He drove a special needs school bus for Harford County Public Schools for ten years and retired in 2014.

Henry has three sons and eight grandchildren. His first Corvette was a 1991 torch red C4. He presently drives a 2007 velocity yellow C6. Henry was vice-president of the Bel Air Corvette Club in 2014. He enjoys attending car shows as well as the social events in the Bel Air Corvette Club.
