Spring Time APB
The Christmas Tree Lights have cycled from
Yellow Yellow Yellow to GREEN!
Reaction time is burning! Let's Go!
OMG-Spring is Almost Here!
Spring is only 35 or so days away, which means but one thing to the members of the Nashville Corvette Club, and that is... it's time to dust off those fiberglass beauties and get ready for the road trips. Hopefully, if you're like me, the car has been checked out by your local Vette Doctor and has received the "all clear" for the spring and summer events. The Valentine's Day Cruise to Montgomery Bell State Park, which is one of the state's crown jewel parks, is a great way to kick off the Cruising Season. There are about 25+ cars that will make the drive on the beautiful back roads of Tennessee. It will be a gorgeous site for all the people along the route. The colors of all those "Vettes" will be spectacular. Dave
New Member – Shared Excitement
Two of our new
members, Richie and Doye Worrell, who just
joined NCC in December of 2014 and own a
classic 1977 Coupe, had been browsing the
internet for a C5 with low mileage and in
good condition. Richie found his dream car
A small group of NCC
members caravanned to the delivery point and
surprised Richie and Doye to share in their
excitement. We all arrived at the MAPCO on
I-24 at precisely the same time. Even the
driver of the car hauler was excited to see
the group of shiny Vettes greeting him and
his precious cargo. The door dropped on the
45’ hauler and there it was – the car. The
C5 roared to life and backed down the ramps
to cheers and a couple sets of teary eyes.
After fueling their car (following a minor glitch), Richie and Doye invited everyone to their house for snacks and refreshments. A special thanks to Tom Bible (NCC’s version of “Go Go Gadget”) for resolving the glitch. Congratulations Richie and Doye and we wish you many miles of happy motoring in your beautiful red C5. Dave Logue NCC President
The 2015 NCC New Year is off to a full throttle start with new Board members and with a new spirit of involvement and focus on Club activities for all members. We Started the New Year with the first ever "Have It Your Way;" No, it’s not a McDonald's spin off event. It’s the brain child of George Kimble where there is no judging, no trophies, no awards, and no best in class and no pressure. It’s left up to the individual to show or shine; cruise to beautiful homes; participate in a rally; or numerous other events. It was lots of fun for everyone. The cost is $20.00 per car and all proceeds went into the Charity Funds. What a great way to start the New Year. It was great seeing all of you there! Dave Logue NCC President
This Jan 17th,weekend several members were helping out at the new National Corvette Museum track. Check out the event on the NCM web site Here: http://www.motorsportreg.com/events/ncm-winter-track-cross-motorsport-park-motorsports-863447
Thirty Three Members and Guest Celebrated the Holiday Season driving their Corvettes in the Gallatin Tennessee Christmas Parade. It was a lot of fun and after the parade the members retired to a cozy get together at the Long Horn. What a great way to meet new members and rekindle old friendships. Let's go Corvette Driving
We had a great turn out for our Holiday and Awards Party. There was much to be appreciated as the membership honored all the hard work done this year by the members. Assuring our Nashville Corvette Club had so much fun during our 2014 Master Membership Season. We all appreciated the work and leadership of Don Hoffmeister as president and all the officers who supported his efforts. Also those behind the scenes planners fixing the menus, the venues and curvy road drives. It has been a Nashville Corvette Club Team work season. Now we are embarking upon a new and wonderful Corvette Adventure. You can be a part of this by participating in all the activities being planned for the membership this year. The best way to have fun is join in! Don't be shy! We all had to be a rookie once. We are certain if you come out and play your Corvette experience will be fun!
You can see photos of the Merriment on our events page. Be sure to look at the Recap 2014 video. Check out our Calendar and go to the Agenda of Events to sign up for exciting Corvette activities. Maybe cruise to a car show or just to dinner. Rev up your motor at a Regional Autocross. Test and tune your machine on the drag strip. Just come meet the folks who are enjoying the Corvette as it was supposed to be. "America's Sports Car"
While many of us were biting off some turkey and smashing some spuds others of us were Biting our lips and smashing down on the accelerator or brake pedals as we ran High Speed at Roebling Road this Holiday weekend. The weather was as good as a racer could hope for! (sunny and 74 degrees) Some took in the sites of Savannah Georgia as a respite from the racing excitement. The Wet Willies Tropical Drinks made some folks very happy. While more sedate members took in the special exhibit of Dante's Inferno at the SCAD Museum of Art, Georgia's most renowned art gallery. Pictures can be seen on the Events Page as usual.
There are lots of activities the rest of the year. Plan to attend as many as you can. We elected new Officers at the November's meeting. Master Membership Points are awarded and the 2014 season has ended. Remember we are starting a whole new agenda. Our November 1st Master Membership Kick off turn out was great. We had members: Autocross, Cruise to a winery and donate some time for NCM. What a beautiful way to start the new season. I want to thank all our members for their participation in the Veterans Day Parades in Franklin and Nashville. This a way to Thank our Country's service Woman and Men for their contribution to our charished freedom.
Then we had that beast all tuned up and ready to rumble out at the fairgrounds for the Annual National Council of Corvette Clubs Southeast Regional Autocross. If you don't think our members are having fun ask one that autocrossed at the fairgrounds on Sunday in the rain. Yahoo!! that was exciting! We watched as our members competed with the best Corvettes in the National points chase. Many were competing for the coveted National Championship.
We have many more exciting adventures for our members to enjoy. Please check in here often. Sign up for a Regional Event like SE Regions High Speed down in Savannah Ga. or Huntsville Ala. Become tuned up at our membership meetings on the second Monday @ 6:30PM Freeland Chevrolet on Hickory Hollow Parkway.
Oh... by the way don't miss this one: The Annual Nashville Corvette Club awards will be presented at the NCC Christmas/Awards Party December 6, 2014. The new 2015 Board will be introduced. There will be lots of door prizes and lots of Holiday Fun by all!! Contact our Event Coordinator
