Here are just some of the benefits to becoming a Corvettes of Minnesota Member:
Participate in Minnesota’s first Corvette Club at whatever level you desire. Depending on your interests, be an officer, a worker at events, plan events, or participate as an entrant. Our club puts on autocross events, a road rally, and participates with other GM clubs in an annual swap meet and car show at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds.
Be a part of a club for those with a passion for Corvettes, and Corvette activities. We don’t require Corvette ownership–just a strong interest in Corvettes, and Corvette activities.
Through our club membership in the Metropolitan Council of Sports Car Clubs, be made aware of autocross events put on by other sports car clubs in Minnesota.
For those with Corvette ownership, have access to membership in the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC). This national organization has nearly 20,000 members. The Midwest Region (Minnesota, Illinois, and Wisconsin) has thirty clubs, and 2,000 members. The clubs host over 100 events (autocross, road rally, and shows) each year. Corvettes of Minnesota will pay at least part of your membership fees in the National organization. There are Regional and National awards each year based on points achieved in competition in NCCC events, as well as a National Convention and a Regional Championship event for those interested.
Opportunities for charitable contributions. COM, in years past, was involved in the Minnesota Parkinson Foundation walk, and contributes financially to this organization. The National NCCC charity is the National Kidney Foundation, which receives significant donations from the organization.
Opportunities for social events with others sharing common interests. We have two winter social gatherings, participate in a “Chili Challenge” with several other Corvette clubs, some years have a summer picnic and/or cruise, and have groups of members who attend events together at Brainerd International Raceway, Road America, or other racing venues.
