I think we are all ready for cooler weather and fall to arrive. It’s been a hot one and a busy summer for our membership. I think I speak for all our active members in saying that with the help of many of our members, we had a busy and fun “Corvette Summer”.
To start with, we were fortunate to have celebrated our 50th Club Anniversary with the General Jackson Riverboat Lunch Cruise. Great weather and great friends enjoyed this special event.
The NCCC National Convention held in Bowling Green, KY was attended by several of our members for the week-long events with hundreds of Corvette owners participating in many of the activities held during the week-long convention. Some of the activities were Kentucky backroad tours, General Jackson River Cruise, tours of the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame and even Valve Cover (Pinewood Derby style) racing with participants attempting to have the fastest and best-looking engine rocker covers to name a few. High-speed and Low-Speed Autocross were also held at the Motorsports Park and George Kimble was “Officially” crowned National Autocross Champion for the 2022 Calendar Year.
September 9th is the date for our 2023 Club Car Show. I encourage all of you to attend as a participant and show your car and also help us by volunteering to help with various show staff positions. The Club needs your participation and help and support of your Nashville Corvette Club with our fundraising event.
All and all I hope everyone had a great summer.
I’m not certain exactly what date the Tiresmoke Newsletter will publish in early September however I would be remiss not to mention that the September Club Meeting will be the first round of Board Member/Officer nominations for the 2023 Calendar year. Nominations will be taken at that meeting and at the October meeting for the following Board Positions and voted on at November meeting elections:
o Club President
o Club Vice President / Activities Director
o Club Secretary
o Club Treasurer
o NCC Governor
Each of these important positions contribute greatly to the ongoing Club operations and the Club’s future direction. We need some new faces and especially your new ideas and contributions. Please consider volunteering a little of your time.
All Board positions must be filled with elected members at the November Club meeting and we have several vacancies for 2023.
We need everyone to consider giving back to the Club by agreeing to serve in some Officer or Chairperson capacity. It isn’t as time-consuming as you may think.
Regards to everyone,
