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.
Spring 2014 - Chairman's Message
I just heard on the news tonight that daylight savings time happens this weekend, March 9 at 2 AM would normally indicate that spring is just around the corner. By looking out the window and checking the thermometer -12 C at noon, I think we have a ways to go.
I guess the cars will have an extended hibernation this year. Your executive has been working on a few projects that I can update on. The fi rst is a new website should be up and running by the AGM this year. We made a few more changes at our last meeting and hopefully we’ll have something to preview by midyear.
The other big project is we are working on is the possibility of hosting a Regional Meet in 2017. A committee has been formed to investigate the feasibility of hosting the event in the GTA. There are 10 members on the committee and we do need more volunteers to assist in the planning. It takes about 2 years of dedication and planning to successfully implement one, so if you feel you’re up to the task or just want to volunteer please contact any one of your executives.
Our schedule of events for 2014 is pretty much maxed out with 2 additional events, one on March 22 at Appleton Motors for Founders Award Judging and a second one in May, which is an exclusive DVD from an NCRS Paint expert. At this date the location is TBD.
So as you can see we’ve been busy over the winter with car projects and events to better serve the membership. If you have an idea, on a topic for an upcoming event, please let us know.
