LATEST CLUB NEWS - VIEWS - PICS - ETC.
 
  Our sincere thanks to Alan Stone with TVAAC for including some VVCC members in the GRAND OPENING of the latest Advance Auto store located on 466 West across the street from AutoZone (go figure).  Here's a cool link to the local press coverage of this great event including pics of members Rich & Paige Udell with their recently acquired 34 Ford street rod and new member Greg Panijan's beautiful C6 roadster.
 
  

  The club desperately needs a chair person & committed committee to develop cruises, dinner runs, points of interest cruises, etc. for the club.  We have always been a club of "doers" but, sadly, we've recently lost that and need members to rekindle that spirit.  We all own CORVETTES and we love to drive them >>>BUT<<< we need organized events to do so.  With close to 500 active members it is a shame that no one is willing to step up.  Other local car clubs, larger and smaller have interesting activities, cruises, dinners, etc but we, for whatever reason, can't seem to emulate this.  Please contact the BOD to help us make this club the best car club in THE VILLAGES.  

  Plans are afoot for a huge VILLAGES CAR event at the Grand Oaks Resort & Museum (better know locally as the Carriage Museum).  Alan Stone, the "PT Barnum of The Villages", has had preliminary discussions with the management of the facility and the preliminary outline currently calls for a "test balloon" show to benefit the
in April of 2017 which will include ALL car clubs in and around THE VILLAGES followed by a HUGE AUTOMOTIVE EVENT (bigger that the Great Race) just before the holiday season in 2017 to again benefit The Special Olympies, one of Mr. Golisano's favorite charities.  We will need an army of helpers, volunteers, etc. to pull this off but it could be the first of many historic events for car clubs in The Villages at this wonderful venue. http://thegrandoaks.com/ More information will be made available as things solidify.

 
Member Bud & Mary Ellen Fisher were favored with a trophy at the monthly cruise-in at the Markets of Marion put on by TVAAC.  We recommend any interested members that want to show their rides in a nice, relaxed venue try this one out. Congrats to you Bud.

Welcome to the Village Vettes Corvette Club website.  Here you will find a plethora of useful and, perhaps, useless information about our club and our beloved cars,


 

The following video embodies what the

is all about.  Loving our cars and taking care of our fellow man.  Before you go any further, please take a moment to watch this:

 
 

In September 2014 our club, THE VILLAGE VETTES CORVETTE CLUB, was the recipient of the FIRST PLACE AWARD for our BANNER displayed at the NATIONAL CORVETTE M-- USEUM in Bowling Green, KY.  Our banner will proudly fly for one year at the entrance to the museum for all CORVETTE visitors to see. This was presented to the club's NCM AMBASSADOR, Bill Clements, at the Sept 2014 20TH ANNIV. NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM CARAVAN which many of our members participated in.  My thanks to my son, Kevin, for his continued support in teaching me website design and graphics "that make sense".  
 
 

   
 

 

We're were hoping for a "WE'RE #1 REPEAT" with our submission for 2015 shown below but the "NCM Banner Gods" were not smiling for us.  We did, however, capture the 3rd place award which, considering the size and median age of our club members is pretty darn good. This simply motivates Kevin & I to come up with one for 2017 that absolutely blows away the competition.  

    

We have a very, very active club, enjoying the camaraderie of our fellow members and our cars with many, many cruises, shows, etc. on our agenda.  Please visit our calendar page for details and links to our upcoming cruises.  If, after perusing our entire website you feel an unrelenting urge to join our club, please click the button for an on-line registration form ON-LINE APPLICATION    Our club is open to all residents of THE VILLAGES who own CORVETTES.  Thank you and enjoy our site and the rest of your day.
