Welcome To NCRS Ontario
There are many reasons that all of us have joined the NCRS and specifically the Ontario Chapter. The main one is to enjoy corvetting. Many of us approach the hobby from different aspects, some of us love the history of the marque, others it's the tech side with all the intricacies involved in the restoration and preservation of these engineering marvels, there are those that love to just enjoy the beauty of possessing an automotive icon, and let's not forget the folks who just love the wind in their hair and burble of the exhaust as they blast down a back road on a summer day, breathing in all that life in a vintage Corvette has to offer. Whether our vettes are Solid Axles, Mid-years, Chrome Bumper Sharks, Softnose Sharks, C4's or C5's the one thing we all harbour is our desire to share our love and enjoyment of these cars.
Winter 2014 - Chairman's Message
Now that 2013 is almost over, it is time to reflect on some of the accomplishments your executive implemented in 2013. The first was the successful implementation of the on-line chapter renewals. There was tremendous response to the on-line chapter registration and the 2014 membership renewals.
Secondly, the chapter experienced a larger than normal turnout at the judging schools and tech sessions, which I think has been the biggest hit of the year. Newer members are staring to show up at the events and are expressing their interest and more members are getting together to help each other with projects. This is a great example that fosters camaraderie with fellow members.
Our executive has also changed with Bob Fortune leaving and Rick Snyder assuming Bob’s role, Susan Gilbey is leaving the Vice Chair post that Andy Goodman is assuming. I would like to thank everyone for their dedicate service and their contributions to the chapter. Eugene McDermott is retiring as editor of the Spinner. Eugene came on board 5 years ago and has done a tremendous job in publishing our newsletter. The Chapter is going to have a new look Spinner for Christmas edition that has been outsourced to Santamaria Designs Inc and we are looking for your feedback. We will continue to hold judging schools and tech sessions, along with road tours and socials.
The Christmas season is upon us, please take care of yourselves and enjoy your family and friends. It’s the time of year for giving, whether it’s a visit of an old friend, or distant family member, or just sharing a quiet moment with your loved ones. Both Shirley and I would like to wish all of you the best of the Season and a prosperous New Year.
