Convention 2020 News
Hello fellow NCCC Members,
After much deliberation and discussion with all concerned, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NCCC Convention. There continue to be too many variables to insure the well being and safety of our members. This is a decision we regret, but feel it is in NCCC's best interest.
Full refunds (without penalty) will be made to all those who registered. This will include those who have already withdrawn their registration and were charged a 10% penalty. The refunds will be made via paypal and will take us a little time - so please be patient.
For those of you that booked your room at the host hotel using your convention registration number, your rooms will be cancelled automatically. You do not need to call the hotel. If you booked at another hotel or booked at the host hotel independent of convention - you need to cancel your own rooms.
Please join me in extending a huge thank you to everyone involved in putting together this convention. I can only imagine the effort and time devoted to this project.
June is here and at least some parts of our world are starting to re-open and return to a new normal. For some it’s still too early; for others, too late. No matter what your situation is, I hope you are all staying safe.
Most all NCCC competitive events and social events have been cancelled through July. I really miss getting together with my extended NCCC family, whether it be for a competition event or a club picnic. I have managed to find time to clean my garage and detail my Corvette. I am slowly knocking a few items off my to-do list but I don’t think there is any chance of running out of things to do.
As I write this, the NCCC Convention is still on as planned. Our hosts from the Indiana Region as well as Jim Walton, the NCCC Convention steering committee chair, are in constant communications. They are looking closely at all the details to insure that the convention can be hosted with safety for all. If you’re planning to attend the convention, check the NCCC web site, as well as the NCCC Facebook page for any updates. We will do our best to keep you updated.
The National Corvette Museum has been closed to the public, but is scheduled to re-open June 8th. The Michelin NCM Bash was postponed and then changed to completely virtual Bash. I’ve spent the last couple days glued to my computer screen and I hope you had a chance to see it also. The Museum staff did a fantastic job with presentations covering Corvette history, the Bowling Green assembly plant, the NCM fashion show, new displays at the Museum, etc, etc. The entire presentation was very professionally done. Congratulations to all involved for making the best of a very difficult time.
I’ll keep my post short this month. Stay safe and let’s all look forward to a time when we can get together again and enjoy our Corvettes.
Save the Wave,
