MICHIGAN REGION EXECUTIVE'S MESSAGE
Hello and Welcome to the Michigan Region website!
There are all the signs for Spring in Michigan – Robins are back, Skunks are out of hibernation, tax refunds
are on the way, AND people are starting to drive their Harleys and Corvettes! With that, we are all eagerly looking forward
to a new driving season in the Wolverine State. There are several events already planned for the year. Car shows, rallies,
and low speed events are on the calendar that you can find elsewhere on our website. The 2017 season will be celebrated very
soon as we gather to honor that award winners at the Michigan Region Banquet, held this year in Lansing and sponsored by Capital
City Corvette Club, to recognize those that made the effort to get to as many events as they could during the year. I would
like to congratulate those that finished first in their respective categories: Dee English and Bruce Wentzel for first overall
and first in Low Speeds, Women’s and Men’s divisions; Jim and James Sweet for first in Rallies; Mary and Bob Hall,
Angela and Mark Hanlin, Gloria and Simon Reiffer for first in Concours. Also, to Corvette Club of Michigan for first in the
overall club points! I would like to especially congratulate Carolyn McLemore and Rene Cardenas for being our NCCC National
Champions and for Michigan Autocross group for being sixth overall nationally. Great work and commitment by all – Congratulations!!
Now, we are anticipating the new driving season and if you would like to join the fun, there are links to all the Michigan
Region Corvette Clubs on the website. We are affiliated with the National Council of Corvette Clubs and participate in not
only our regional events but many national events as well. You can visit the national website to find out more about the
larger organization. We all look at from our common interest, the Corvette, and consider our groups like family! Look for
a club that meets near you and contact them for the particulars. Or, you can contact me and I will be able to assist you
in finding a club to meet with and get to know your fellow Corvette owners! Ba Safe and see you around the Mitten!
