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.

The Club President's Holiday Message

The year is almost over and our big events for December were a huge hit! The Toy Run was a great success, we raised quite a bit of money for the Cape Canaveral Fire Department and gave so many Toys and Gift Cards for the children in the area that may not have had a Christmas. I am sure that will make a lot of happy children, the donations from our club alone were spectacular and please think of those smiles on Christmas morning and how nice it is to be a part of that.
 
This year's Christmas party was a blast and the Holiday Inn convention center did a great job decorating and cooking for us. Everyone looked fabulous in all their fancy clothes and the night was a lot of fun. I want to especially thank DJ Rockin Don (Don Mennillo our VP) for the evenings music he was great and we appreciate what he went through to make the evening so much fun on the dance floor! I also want to thank you the CKCC members for all the great gifts you brought, we are going to be able to give the Brevard Sharing Center a large amount of money to help them feed the homeless and less fortunate for the holidays.
 
It has been my honor to serve as your President this year, we have wonderful members and I am proud to be a part of this club. I look forward to another great year in 2015 and hope that you all have a fantastic holiday and happy, healthy New Year! See you in 2015!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What is the National Council of Corvette Clubs?

    The National Council of Corvette Clubs (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 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.
