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.

NCCC Convention Information

A note from our NCCC Governess, Brenda Teixeira:

Greetings,

As stated in our January meeting, registration for our 2015 Convention is fast approaching. Registration will open at Midnight, January 31st.

conv2015 logo2

If you think or want to go to convention, I strongly suggest that you become familiar with the information on the NCCC website before this date. The web address is: www.corvettesnccc.org. In order to register for convention you will have to access this site. Once you have accessed the site to the left of the screen will be a pull down, please click on convention and follow the prompts. On this site will be the information about the resort, the different lodges, the schedule of events, different day trips etc. Please be aware you can not make a hotel reservation without registering for convention. When registration opens up, there will be a registration form to be completed for the different events (i.e. Low Speed/High Speed autocross, Drags etc.) and day trips. The car shows will be inside a building which will house up to 100 cars. If you think that you want to do a particular event or day trip but aren't sure, I would suggest that you register to be on the safe side. You can always cancel at a later date.

Speaking of day trips, there will four day trips. Mt. Airy Casino, Blue Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery, a 2 and half hour cruise on the Hudson River and last but not least a tour of the Yuengling Brewery, All these day trips have costs associated with them. Once again review the information on the web site, to become familiar with what you want to do for day trips and events.

The Split Rock Resort has three lodges, which are a mile apart, there is a shuttle service between the lodges. They are the Galleria, the Willow Brook and the Lodge. The Galleria is the host lodge where everything happens. I would recommend that you go on site and review the rooms before hand. Do not bother trying to register for a room through the web site. When you click on the registration for convention you will be given a link and group code for room reservations. No room reservation by telephone can made till February 1, 2015 and only with a group code and you can't get a group code until you register.

The events will be as follows: A judged show and people's choice car show, which will be held indoors up to 100 cars. A rallye which will end with at picnic with a funkhanna and games. Both the high and low speed events will be held at Pocono Raceway. The Pocono Raceway is a 2.5 mile road course, you will need a high speed license to run the high speed so plan now if you are interested. The drags will be at the Numidia Dragway, this a 1/4 mile NHRA drag strip. A golf scramble to held at the Split Rock golf course.

As you can see there are a lot of things to do and fun times to be had by everyone. I encourage you to attend, you will meet new people and make new friends and have a good time doing it.

I know that we have a lot of new members in our club who may not be familiar with some of these events, if you have any questions please to not hesitate to call me or e-mail me. Again review the web site's information.

Hope to see a lot of smiling faces at Split Rock.

Thanks,
Brenda

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 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.
