September 7-8, 2018

Dan Gove, a member of MICC and St. Jude Drive board member, was our guest speaker at our national meeting this weekend in St. Louis, MO. He spoke to the group about the St. Jude Drive.

There are 28 clubs in the Midwest Region with only four clubs who had a secure website! Our club was one of those four! Congratulations!

Two of our club members received Regional Championship awards for autocross racing. Placing 9 th in Men’s was Mike Ball and placing 8 th in Women’s was Elizabeth Ball. Congrats to both of you!

We are in need of a location to have an autocross in the Peoria area. If you know of a lot that can be used, please contact me ASAP. The Quincy location that we have used in the past is no longer available.  We risk losing our only autocross.

Membership renewals will start soon! For those with email, you will receive a email confirmation and in January everyone will receive a physical card. The NCC has decided to continue using a credit card type card. There will not be a hard copy for those renewing high speed licenses. Those will be emailed/printed only.

Membership numbers as of September 8, 2018 are 18,623 members including MALS in the NCCC, with the Midwest Region having 2,450 members and 28 clubs, with Corvette Club of Illinois/Suburban Corvette Club of Minnesota (Tie) having 207 members each.

We covered lots of issues at the Governor’s meeting this weekend in St. Louis. We reviewed and determined there will be no changes to the new rule book. There will be 10 minor changes, including how racing numbers will be secured, in the Standing Rules for clarification only, and will be voted on for approval at the November meeting. The election committee revealed those running for office for next year. Electronic voting will begin soon and the results of the election will be announced at the November meeting.

National Council of Corvette Clubs Convention 2019 will be held in Denver, CO July 7-12, 2019.

National Council of Corvette Clubs Convention 2020 was submitted for approval in Indianapolis, IN.

Preliminary information is available.
