The National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. (NCCC) was founded in the United States as an all volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners/enthusiasts! In 2009 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary and look forward to many more years of fellowship. The purpose of NCCC was (and still is) to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use and ownership of the Corvette ~ America's Sports Car!
In the early days, the number of Clubs was rather small with all of the them being located East of the Mississippi. Today, there are about 250 Clubs in 16 Regions both East and West of the Mississippi! The membership in NCCC is comprised of more than 19,000 Members and is the largest non-profit, all volunteer Corvette organization in the United States! Come join us!
NCCC President's Message May 2021
May is here and it looks like summer is too. It was 86 degrees in northern Illinois yesterday, which is more like the temperature for mid-July than late April. Not only is the weather pretty nice, but it looks like the Covid19 numbers are going down, vaccinations are up, and many events and activities are starting to happen again. The pandemic certainly isn’t over yet, so please be safe and don’t get complacent.
A couple weeks ago, I went to my very first NCCC Time Trial. I’ve been to dozens of track days (or HPDE’s) over the years and this was a sanctioned competitive event held within a HPDE. It was held at Nelson Ledges (site of the 2021 NCCC Convention High Speed event) and hosted by the East Ohio Region. What a blast with 4 15 minute sessions on the track each day. Safety was stressed throughout the weekend and there were no incidents. Congratulations to the folks from the East Ohio Region for a very nice event.
After getting home from the Time Trial, I had one day to unpack and pack again for a trip to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. This was the annual Michelin NCM Bash. A packed schedule included seminars, book signings, car shows, vendors to check out, and events at the Motorsports Park. It was fun to see dozens of C8 Corvettes of most every color in one place. NCCC had a hospitality tent and we enjoyed renewing friendships with old friends as well as meeting new friends. My thanks to all who helped staff the tent and donate their time to promoting NCCC.
After the Michelin NCM Bash, I headed to the Midwest Region’s first autocross since 2019. I think we were all a bit rusty, but it sure was nice to get in the Corvette and have some fun. It was also good to see all of our friends that we have been missing for over a year. I’m looking forward to the next event in a couple weeks.
NCCC will host its first in person Governors meeting on April 30th and May 1st. We have been working with the hotel to do as much as possible so that this meeting can be held safely. Meeting rooms have changed to allow for bigger rooms and masks and hand sanitizer will be available. This is our first in person meeting since February 2020, so there will be a lot of business to cover.
In just a little over a month, the East Ohio Region will host the annual NCCC Convention. I hope you will consider attending. There are several tours planned, a dinner cruise, parties to attend, and several competitive events. The annual convention is always a great time and you don’t want to miss this one. There is still time to register and the information can be found here:
That’s all for now, stay safe, and...
Save the Wave!
