The Winter of 2017- 2018 lasted WAY
to long this year in Michigan! But, Spring arrived, I think it was a Tuesday, and then Summer started the next day ...
Now, we are well into Summer with high 80's and low 90's and not much rain - Michigan!
The Corvette driving season is also in full swing! Many events have already occurred in April,
May and June but many are yet to come through July, August and September. All of these events are posted on the Michigan
Region web site at: www.michcorvette.org and look for the ‘Calendar of Events' or ‘Flyers' on the left-hand side.
This is going to be a very special year in Michigan as two of the founding clubs, that started NCCC,
are celebrating their 60th year! Capital City Corvette Club, MI-003, and Corvette Club of Michigan, MI-006,
and both planning big parties for later this year. More information will be available on these celebrations and should
be posted soon. Not many original members of these two clubs are still around but there are plenty of 50-year+ members
in many of the older clubs in Michigan. We can all appreciate the foresight and planning by those founding clubs and
members that led to the creation of NCCC.
Another milestone celebration
was the 30th Annual Corvette Show by the Corvette Club of Battle Creek and again was held at the Cornwell's
Turkeyville USA, in Marshall, on May 20th. That is almost always the first show of the year and one of the bigger ‘Corvette
only' shows put on by a Michigan club. There was another good turnout with members from nearly every Michigan Region
club. Congratulations to club president Dan MacDonald and to everyone at CCBC for this significant achievement.
There are two goals I set for myself this year. First, to go out and visit each
Michigan NCCC club, during a membership meeting, so their members can put a face with the name. I did this when I first
took the job as Region Executive a few years back and met with most of the clubs. I found that many were not entirely
sure what NCCC and the Michigan Region are all about and the communication with them was valuable and I look forward to getting
together with the rest of the clubs as the year moves on. Second, I have a larger goal to try to meet with some of the
many Corvette clubs in Michigan that are not affiliated with any organization. Hopefully I will then convince them that
NCCC could be a great benefit to their club and help grow the Michigan Region. If you are a member of a non-NCCC club
and would like more information or to schedule a meeting with me - please call or email and I will be happy to discuss NCCC
with you and your members.
Save the Wave and Enjoy a Safe and Thrilling
