April – that must mean that spring is here and the dreaded tax day is around the corner. I hope you all have survived the long winter and the challenging weather that spring always brings. Summer will be here before you know it and hopefully so will a full Corvette calendar.
The Covid19 virus is still with us, but most of my friends, admittedly older, have had both doses of the vaccine. I am concerned that numbers are rising in several states, but hopefully that’s just a bump in the road. Please remain cautious for everyone’s sake – I’m pretty sure we’re all ready for this to be behind us!
My local club (Northern Illinois Corvette Club) is busy filling its calendar with drive outs, parades, and a few competitive events. I hope that’s the case for your club too. Spending time with our fellow Corvette owners is really what this organization is all about.
The next scheduled NCCC Governors meeting is April 30th and May 1st. After conversations with the NCCC executive board, the host hotel, and local health authorities, we are planning to proceed with an in person meeting in St Louis. We will be abiding by all recommended safety precautions. We are now aware more than ever that the pandemic situation can change drastically in a moment’s time – please check the NCCC web site for the latest status.
The annual NCCC Convention will be here in just a few weeks. Registration is open and there are parties, tours, and competitive events for everyone. After being isolated for almost a year, I am really looking forward to a great time in Cleveland. You can find all the information (including the registration link) here: https://www.corvettesnccc.org/2021Convention/Convention2021.php. Don’t forget to order your convention shirts here: https://www.corvettesnccc.org/2021Convention/2021ConventionShirtOrderForm.pdf. Make plans now to join your fellow NCCC members for a great time in Cleveland.
NCCC continues to be a supporter of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Michelin NCM Bash is scheduled for April 22nd through 24th and NCCC will be there with a hospitality booth. I hope you have the opportunity to attend and stop in and say “Hi”. This event is 3 days packed with activities including seminars, classrooms, product demonstrations, and a couple banquets. It’s a great event and well worth your participation.
I’m looking forward to a busy and better 2021 filled with many Corvette activities. Most of all, I look forward to seeing all of Corvette friends.
That’s all for now, stay safe, and...
