July is here and I still haven’t been to a single Corvette event this year. It just doesn’t seem right! Sooner or later we will get through these tough times and enjoy all that is part of owning a Corvette.
We made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NCCC Convention. We waited as long as we could, hoping against hope that there would be a way to pull it off. In the end it just wasn’t possible to put on a quality event and ensure the safety of all involved. Please join me in extending a thank you to all involved. Planning for an event of this magnitude takes months and months of time and effort from many individuals. These folks did all the work and then didn’t get to see the end result. I know that the annual convention is one of my favorite events and I am already looking forward to next year.
Speaking of convention – there is a limited supply of what is surely going to be a collectable shirt from the Indianapolis Convention. You can contact Tammy DeWitt at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-796-9640 for details.
One of our loyal sponsors is Hagerty Insurance and we thank them for their support. They are hosting a virtual meeting for NCCC members on July 23, 2020. This is your opportunity to learn all about collector car insurance. An invite is included below with details on how to participate.
The National Corvette Museum has faced the same challenges that we all have with this pandemic. They shut the doors to the public for some time and are now back open with new procedures to keep everyone safe. What a great job they did finding ways to still connect with the public while the doors were shut. I hope you attended the virtual bash – I sat in front of my monitor for two days soaking in all the different presentations. I was also able to virtually attend a sneak peek for two of the latest displays: The E. Pierce Marshall Memorial Performance Gallery and the entombed 1954 Corvette. Great job on both and I look forward to visiting in person soon. Regarding the National Corvette Museum, I need a favor from each and every one of you and it won’t cost you anything.

I certainly can’t predict what the future will bring, but I so look forward to the times when we can all be together again and enjoy our Corvettes as well as each other’s company. I think I miss that the most. Be safe and…
