Club Information

If you are a new member, or still thinking about becoming a member of Cornhusker Corvette Club, you probably have a few questions. Here are some of the most common questions that are asked and terms used in our organization.

Q. What happens at the monthly meetings?

The first part of the meeting is social time. The hall where we hold our meetings offers a basic buffet dinner for $10 starting at 6:00pm. They also offer soft drinks, ice tea, beer and wine. This is a great time to catch up with old and new friends. You can come anytime before 7:30 and dinner is not required.

At 7:30, the president conducts the meeting and discusses any old and new business that needs to be covered. Then, the club officers talk about upcoming events, introduce new members and guests and make any announcements. Along the way, we like to make the meetings fun and interesting.



Q. What is a "Meet & Greet"?

A Meet and Greet is a social gathering designed to get new and existing club members together for fun and conversations. If you are a new member or visitor, we invite you to join us for the fun. Meet and Greets are generally at local restaurants, often at places that support our club. We often joke that the two things we love to do most is drive our Corvettes and eat.



Q: What is the National Council of Corvette Clubs?

Most of all, the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) is about having fun with your Corvette! NCCC brings the Corvette community together to enjoy and honor America’s True Sports Car - THE CORVETTE!

NCCC is an all volunteer organization dedicated to serving the needs of the constituent clubs and their individual members. NCCC provides a comprehensive insurance program that covers most any activity that a club might pursue. The competition sanction program includes showing, parading, touring and even racing.

Each year a National Convention takes place where NCCC members from the entire country gather for a week of Corvette fun. Many of these events are sponsored by Corvette related businesses that contribute to the experience.
Membership includes the quarterly magazine "Blue Bars".


Q: What is the Future Corvette Owners Association?

The Future Corvette Owners Association (FCOA) is the youth organization of NCCC. It's a unique "Corvette Club for kids" formed to interest the younger generation in the Corvette hobby. This is the generation that is the Corvette enthusiast of the 21st century! FCOA members are the foundation of NCCC's future and hopefully FCOA members will go on to be
active NCCC members when they turn 16.



What are Competition Events?


NCCC Sanctioned Events

In 1965 the NCCC Sanctioned Competition Program began, and it has grown vastly since then. The purpose of the program is to encourage the members of different NCCC clubs to take part in activities together. The program provides uniform and fair standards under which individual Corvette clubs may sponsor competition events. These rules are outlined in the NCCC Rulebook, which you can link to from our web page.
The Sanctioned Competition Program depends entirely on voluntary participation by clubs and their members. If you decide to take part, please remember that NCCC events are sporting events to be conducted in a sporting spirit, that all events are organized and managed by amateurs who cheerfully give their time and do their best, that things might not go perfectly; and that, to a reasonable extent, these things are a part of the chance you take in entering competition in the events.

Championshp Point System

Clubs and individuals participating in the NCCC Sanctioned Competition Program can compete for the annual Points Championship at the national and regional levels. After the competition season ends, the clubs and individuals who finish high in the national or regional point standings are recognized with awards for their accomplishments. You can earn points by either working or competing at a sanctioned event. In addition, if the event is not sponsored by your own club, you’ll earn an equal number of points for your club. The number and type of points earned depends on a number of factors, which you can read about in the NCCC rulebook.

Autocross
Autocrosses come in two varieties:
Low-speed races, which usually take place in a parking lot. A course is set up using pylons and is designed to test driving skills. Cars race one at a time against the clock. Typically the course is less than a mile long, and speeds are under 80 mph. No previous experience is necessary, and veterans are always willing to help you get started.

High-speed races, which usually take place on a track. In these events, speeds typically exceed 80 mph. To participate, you must have a high-speed license, which generally means you have competed in a number of lowspeed events first. For details, though, talk with the club’s NCCC governor.

Rallyes

A rallye is something like the directions you give a friend for getting to your new house in the suburbs. It is more than a test of your ability to follow directions, more than intense observation. It’s enjoyable, and rallies can produce a piece of silverware to place on the bookshelf and then keep polished.

Funkhana

A funkhana (fun-khan-a) is basically a similar type event as an autocross but much slower, safe for any type car – not abusive to the car like some autocrosses can be.

These events usually involve a test of very low-speed driving skills such as backing, maneuvering through cones, turning a 360 degree circle around a cone, parallel parking and whatever else the devious chairperson comes up with (such as blind folding one of the occupants and having them take directions from the other).

They often (like always), include some gimmick activities such as ring toss, putt-putt golf, hula-hoop, hop-scotch, bean-bag toss, scrabble, puzzles and anything else that requires driver and/or navigator teamwork. These events are usually timed.
Funkhanas can be even be held car-less (no car at all) while others might have you start in a car and end up without the car. Some have you switch rolls as driver and navigator. Most do involve driving your car to check points or "stations" where the driver and/or navigator will have to perform the designated activity. Successful completion of an activity either adds points or reduces the overall runtime of the participants.


Car Shows
Most of the car shows in which CCC participates are of the “Show-n-Shine” or “People’s Choice” variety. These shows don’t require thorough cleaning with Q-tips and toothpicks, since the judging is generally performed by the attendees of the show. There are separate classes for each Corvette generation, as well as classes for custom and specialty Corvettes. The judging criteria are very subjective, and the winning cars often have some type of customization that is unique or particularly eye-catching. Trophies are usually awarded to the top 3 in each class.  Sanctioned Car Shows are listed on the West Region website and NCCC points are awarded.

Sometimes our contributors will request a car show at their location. This is usually a restaurant that is attracting customers. These types of shows are not judged and are just antoher way fo getting out and enjoying our Corvettes and friends.



Q: When and Why is a Waiver and Release Form Needed and Signed?

     What does the Waiver and Release form do for us and why do we have to sign it at every event?

               This form is the single MOST important document NCCC has. The Release and Waiver of Liability is the form that 
               protects NCCC, its member clubs and NCCC members if an injured participant, worker, or volunteer sues you. All
               participants must sign this form as required.

When are waivers required?

Waivers are required for the following:
  • All Sanctioned events.
  • All Non-Sanctioned events if required by the Competition Rulebook.
  • Any event whereby the venue requires a Certificate of Insurance.
  • All Club Sponsored car shows for participants & workers only.

When we have a car show at a dealership or mall parking lot, it is virtually impossible to require all of the general public to sign a waiver.

When an event such as a car show occurs in an open uncontrolled area such as this where the general public spontaneously enters the area for viewing of the cars they do not have to sign a waiver. However, all of the Sponsor Club(s) members, workers, and all entrants must sign the appropriate waivers to adequately provide the NCCC Insurance coverage for that event.

Suppose a spectator, participant, or worker does not want to sign the waiver?

Anyone that refuses to sign a waiver is NOT permitted to participate, work, or enter ANY RESTRICTED AREA at any NCCC event requiring waivers.

Parade participation and/or the chauffeuring of local dignitaries.

These activities are “Club sponsored events” and participants, including those who are riding as passengers within the cars, MUST sign a waiver in-order for coverage to apply.

Club members have a published social event in which members meet to eat & socialize at a public location.

As this is a social event for members, waivers are no longer required.

For more information on waivers and NCCC insurance visit the NCCC Insurance page at http://www.corvettesnccc.org/Insurance.html .


What are Social Points?

Social Points are awarded for attending social events that are not NCCC sanctioned. These points are not counted toward NCCC point totals for individuals or clubs.  Awards are given for the top 20 places in Cornhusker Corvette Club for both social points and competition points.


What is Summer Festival?

Summer Festival is Cornhusker Corvette Clubs annual end of summer celebration. It is always held on Labor Day weekend and covers multiple days. A typical Summer Festival will consist of a Friday night party with food and drinks, a Car Show on Friday or Saturday, Low Speed and possible High Speed racing on multiple days and usually at least one raylle. Often there will be a Funkhana as part of the event.

This is a weekend that truly has "Something for Everyone".
