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.

New Website Announced

Hello Fellow CKCC Members,
 
As of today we have a new website for Cape Kennedy Corvette Club. This website was developed by George Halkovic with much help from Kristy on what I consider a very user friendly and up to date site for CKCC. It is amazing how much work has gone into this and we thank them both for all the long hours and commitment they have both put into developing this for the club. As you all know the internet is constantly changing and this allows us to keep current with those changes, I hope you will be as excited as I am to use the site.
 
I would like to personally thank Jim Cochran and I know the club is with me on this by saying a huge thank you for the development and last 10 years that Jim served as an excellent webmaster. Jim has decided to step down from being involved with the website and we can't say enough of how much we appreciate what he has done in the past. 
 
To get to the new site you can go to www.ckcc.club, when the site appears, please click on the drop down menus and also register so you can get into the members only areas. To register please go to Login and fill out the information on the right hand side of the page and click Register.  You will then receive an e-mail requesting you to click on link to activate registration.  At that time you will be registered however will not have member access until you are approved as a bonafide member of the club.

Below please find a list of the capabilities of our new website.

  1. On-line registration for events such as car shows, autocrosses, membership new and renewals (coming),
    Christmas party (not this years though) and any other event that requires sign-up.
  2. In addition to being able to sign-up for an event, you will also be able to pay for it via PayPal.
    No credit card information is stored on this site.
  3. Members have their own section (check out the webmaster letter under committees).

  5. There is a forum for items for sale and tech tips.
  6. There is a forum for suggestions to improve the site.

  8. More club history such as past newsletters and minutes from meetings will be available.

Hopefully all of you will contribute and make this an up-to-date and informative site.

Eventually www.capekennedycorvetteclub.com will also access the new website.  Until then please use www.ckcc.club

Best Regards,
Neena McAfee
President CKCC

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.
