Welcome to the Cape Kennedy Corvette Club (aka CKCC)!

We are a diversified group of Corvette enthusiasts who enjoy getting together either socially or competitively to support local charities. CKCC has been a member organization of the National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc since 1967. Currently we are the second largest Corvette club in Florida (as number 2, we try harder).  Among its members, CKCC can count both former and current astronauts. We actively support the Eastern Florida State College (formerly Brevard Community College) by providing numerous scholarships. Our annual "Vettes at the Port" car show raises funds for the National Kidney Foundation and Make a Wish Foundation. The annual Corvette Toy Run, in conjunction with the Brevard County Sherriff and Cape Canaveral Fire Department, collects toys and donations to assist Brevard County families in need. Our low speed autocrosses provide friendly competition and driving skill enhancement, as well as, supporting the clubs charitable work. CKCC meets at Jimmies Restaurant, 1279 Admiralty Blvd, Rockledge, FL 32955 (Cross Streets: Between Outrigger Cir and Halsey Ave) on the second Monday of the month. A social hour/dinner is available before the meeting from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. The general membership meeting begins at 7:00PM. All Corvette enthusiasts are invited to attend.

President's Message

July 4th 2015 Events

 
Hello everyone,
 
We have been asked by Honor America to participate in the 4th of July parade in downtown Melbourne. The event will start at 10:00 am we will line up at 8:30 and of course go somewhere afterwards for lunch. If you are interested in participating please email me back no later than Tuesday so I can turn in the form and fee if we have enough participation. I will send further emails later in the week with updates and where we will meet to caravan there.

The mystery cruise was so much fun we had almost 70 people with about 35 cars and went to a great German restaurant in downtown Sanford, great food, shopping and commaraderie of the best Corvette club! Thanks to Carol and Frank for finding this little gem!

  I also want to put out a special thank you to Tom & Barbara Dickman for all the hard work in getting the" Vette Doctor" as one of the club's platinum sponsors. Without their help we would not have been able to add him to our list of valued sponsors. Thanks!
 
Steve update, he is doing very well still taking time to heal due to a couple complications but he looks great and he and Maureen are talking about possibly joning us at an event in July!
 
A reminder that our Monthly Fishlips at the Port Brunch will be this Sunday the 5th at 10:00 am, we may have a new place at the port to visit after the brunch but I will keep you posted on that.
 
Hope you all have a great week...Neena
 
We are getting a great response for the parade this Saturday. If you haven't rsvp'd and would like to attend please let me know no later than Thursday early afternoon as I have to give them the final count of cars at that time. We will be meeting across from Harvey's Groves on US#1 in Rockledge at 8:00 on Saturday morning and leave at 8:15. If you live in Melbourne you can pull into Rosner Chevrolet and join the caravan as we come by.
 
Please bring some water to drink and chairs if you like, we will sit in the shade untill the parade starts at 10. The parade goes most of the way through downtown Melbourne and ends up at the Liberty Bell Museum and from there we will go somewhere for an early lunch. It is great to see so much interest in this and nice that we will have a good showing. Don't forget to wear your red, white and blue if you have some. I will send out another email reminder on Friday, hope to see you there if not have a great 4th!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Q: What is an Autocross?

    At the autocross, you'll see a course set up on a large parking lot. Soft, rubber traffic cones will be used to form the course, which consists of turns, slaloms, and straights.

    Prepare your car before you arrive. Remove all loose items from your car — floor mats, driver's carpet, coffee cups, etc. Check tire pressures. You may arrive early and set your parking spot up with chair and anything else you feel you may need. After parking, go to the registration area. Make sure your car number is correct and be available by your car for officials to "tech" your vehicle.

    A course map is usually displayed on the side of the clubs' trailer. After the course has been deemed ready by club officials, participants may be allowed to walk the course. The first problem that confronts every autocrosser is staying on course, so the first step is to learn where it goes. A drivers meeting is held at the start and it outlines the rules and regulations for a fun and a safe event. Prior to the competition, participants will line up for a "parade lap" around the course in their cars. After you will return to the "pits" and wait for your group (catagory your car competes in) to be called to the staging area. When it's your turn, watch the starter and he will line you up and give you the signal to GO...!

    Starting off, concentrate only on determining the best line. In an autocross, we are concerned with three things: time, distance, and speed. To drive the course in the least possible amount of time, the line must offer the shortest distance and permit the greatest speed. As the formula illustrates, time can be decreased by either shortening the distance or increasing the speed — or better yet, both. Many times it becomes impossible to drive at the highest speed over the shortest distance. When this occurs, the best path is a compromise somewhere between the two extremes. It's usually over in about 40 to 50 seconds. Get your times and try to better them on the next run....!

  • Q: What is a Funkhana?

    FUNKHANA A-FUN-WHAT???

    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.

  • Q: What is a Rallye?

    A rallye has been described as an extremely large board game: public streets are the board, and your car is your playing piece. In each car, the driver and navigator carefully follow instructions that direct them along a given course. There is a friendly competition at the finish to see which teams followed the course most accurately.

    Rallyes come in various shapes and sizes, but they are all non-racing events held on open public roads.

     

    Gimmick Rallyes

     

    In a gimmick rallye, you solve puzzles and try to avoid being tricked. The only time constraint is a deadline to be at the finish location.

     

    Timed Rallyes

     

    In a timed rallye, you try to stay on time, arriving at checkpoint locations neither early nor late.
