Benefits of Belonging to Capital City Corvette Club:
Capital City Corvette Club is a charter member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs which was founded as an all volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners and enthusiasts! The purpose of NCCC was -- and still is -- to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use of the Corvette! All CCCC members belong to both organizations. Some of the many benefits of belonging to CCCC/NCCC are listed below.
Community Involvement and Charities:
CCCC is very involved in our local community. Each year we raise funds for Potter Park Zoo, the Greater Lansing Food Bank, and purchase toys to donate to the local Toys for Tots campaign. In 2005, close to $10,000 was raised by CCCC members to benefit those less fortunate. More than $8,000 was donated back to the community in 2006, $7,500 in 2007, $6,000 in 2008, $7,000 in 2009 and $8,000 in 2010. In addition, CCCC has worked with the Capital Area Muscle Car Club over the past two years to raise more than $15,500 for Sparrow Hospice Services. See our Community Involved page for more of the things we are involved in.
NCCC raffles off a brand new Corvette to raise funds for the National Kidney Foundation's U.S. Transplant Games every year. So far NCCC has raised more than a half a million dollars to support this cause. The winner of the 2004 Corvette Raffle was Dave Cripe from Capital City Corvette Club!
In order to encourage interactivity between individual clubs, NCCC has organized a comprehensive National Competition Program. We have a set of Rules that are Nationally recognized and followed. A National Points Standing compilation is maintained by the Vice President of Competition and a Regional Points Standing that each Regional Competition Director is responsible to maintain. Trophies are awarded to Michigan's top competitors at the Michigan Region Awards Banquet held each spring. The top national competitors receive awards at NCCC's annual convention.
NCCC hosts an annual Convention in different parts of our country each summer. NCCC members come together from across the nation for a week of getting to know each other. Every day is filled with Corvette related activities such as drag racing, high and/or low speed events, funkhanas, rallyes and car shows. Day trips are often available for individuals that aren't involved in competition events at Convention. At the end of the day everyone gets together for a fun filled evening of entertainment, dancing, or just relaxing and visiting with friends.
Recent conventions have been held in Bellaire, MI (2000); Bowling Green, KY (2001); Indianapolis, IN (2002); Hagerstown, MD (2003); Las Vegas, NV (2004); St. Cloud, MN (2005); Orlando, FL (2006); Nashville, TN (2007); Tulsa, OK (2008); Colorado Springs, CO (2009); and Palm Beach, FL (2010). The 2011 NCCC convention will be held June 18-24 in Tinley Park, IL.
