Corvette Club of America Celebrates 61 Years in July 2017

Sixty One years ago on July 17th our founding members held the very first meeting of what was to become Corvette Club of America. There now have been 61 years of continuous meetings and gatherings to this day. This makes Corvette Club of America the first Corvette Club on the planet!!! We celebrated our annual Founders' Day Picnic on Sunday, July 16 th. The event was held at Hidden Hills Farm & Vineyard in Frederick, MD. Look for an article in this issue of the Corvette Courier.

Twelve of your fellow CCA members, including yours truly, traveled to the NCM - LeMans 24hr Viewing Party. Jon T., Parliamentarian, Corvette Courier editor, and all around great guy, was the organizer/tour guide. We all had a great time. On the way home I stopped by South Carolina to visit family, another good time! All in all a fun 1,855 miles on SCOOTS in a week. Great road trip!

On July 19th I will head north to Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut for the IMSA - Weather Tech Sports Car Championship and the Corvette Coral. I have not been to Lime Rock since the mid 70's so I'm looking forward to the race as last year was Corvette Racing's 100 th Victory at this very same track. This is also Lime Rock Park's 60th Anniversary Year! They are making a big deal out of it, as they should, which makes it all the better. More on my road trip to Lime Rock next month.

I hope many of you are making plans for Corvettes at Carlisle. We need as many CCA members as we can get to purchase a Weekend Pass to help assure that we have our very central location as well as tent and tables provided by Carlisle Events. Corvettes at Carlisle runs from August 24th through the 27th and is always a fun time. Discount tickets are available online until July 24th.

Our next Monthly Meeting will be July 11th at the Greene Turtle in Burtonsville, MD from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

Tuesday, July 25th, will be Shop Night at Sport Chevrolet.

I wish everyone a safe and well-traveled Summer and I look forward to seeing many of you at the many events and socials your CCA has planned. Safe motoring and save the wave.

2017 President
