Late Breaking News

New FCOA Director is a member of Capital City Corvette Club!

Members,

It is with great pleasure and pride that I get to announce that one of our members, my wife, Melissa Felts has accepted the appointment to be the new National Director of the FCOA. FCOA (FUTURE CORVETTE OWNERS ASSN.) is the youth organization of NCCC. It's a unique "Corvette Club for kids" formed to interest the younger generation in the Corvette hobby. This is the generation that is the Corvette enthusiast of the 21st century! FCOA members are the foundation of NCCC's future and hopefully FCOA members will go on to be active NCCC members when they turn 16. Capital city has carried numerous youths in the FCOA program and my wife and I have sponsored both of our kids in this program.

Melissa has shared some of her ideas with me and the new VP of Competition (Rene Cardenas - from MI RCD) is also interested in supporting some changes to the program to get the kids more involved. I am personally excited for the FCOA program to get some fresh energy and ideas.

Kyle Felts, President
Capital City Corvette Club

Welcome!

“Make new friends, but keep the old. One is Silver and the other’s Gold”. Those words are from a poem written in the 19th century. But they’re timeless, aren’t they! So, please join the Capital City Corvette Club in welcoming the following new friends into our membership:

  • Bob and Elizabeth Hedlund, from Grand Ledge, recently joined our ranks!  They drive a 2010 Red coupe.
  • Mike and Janet Sprague, from Mulliken, rejoined CCCC after a brief lapse of membership. They drive a 2000 coupe with black and purple graphics.
  • Jim Curtis recently transferred his membership to CCCC from Grand Valley Corvette Association.  He is also a social member with Lakeshore Corvette Club.  Jim lives in Muskegon and has six Corvettes including a 1977 white L82 coupe, 1993 ruby red 40th anniversary coupe, 1995 red convertible, 1997 red coupe, 2001 quicksilver coupe, and a 2007 velocity yellow coupe. (Whew!)
