YCCC Mission Statement
Our mission is to grow friendships and exhibit integrity among members utilizing the Corvette "signature of excellence" as our standard. We consider ourselves stewards of enthusiasm for the Corvette through participation in car shows, parades, road trips and track performance events. The Club also believes that we have the moral responsibility to reach out to local community organizations through donations that assist those in need.
YCCC Calendar - May 2016
Note: Some special events are months/years in the planning stage and may not be repeated. They often show up 1st in "Potential additions to the Calendar". Be alert, don't wait, as soon as they show up in the newsletter contact the chairman and get on his list. Often participation is limited and the event can sell out quickly. That why we say "if you snooze you lose".

We again will spend time on Charlotte Motor Speedway and Mr. Hendrick's personal car collection known as the Heritage Collection! We will also tour the grounds of Hendrick Motorsports as well as Richard Childress Racing, we will tour Kannapolis NC home of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and meet his mother Martha.

WOT Event - 17-19 June 2016 - Friday - Sunday - Drive Watkins Glen - Promoted by Porsche-Potomac Region. Registration opens Feb. 1st. We presently have 4-5 cars planning to register. Newly repaved, W-G is a big-boy track like VIR. YCCC did parade laps on this track several years ago and found it exhilarating. As to this Porsche club, past experience proves that they run a great event. In addition, the Porsche/Corvette rivalry is always a hoot [We will be adding a Team WOT Cadillac to that mix this year!]. Unlike many Corvette events, Porsche events seem to be big on requiring instructors for near-everyone. The positive side of this is that most of their events are not restricted to the more experienced drivers. Green group drivers will be equally welcome. Questions - Contact Tom Ranc.
18 Jun 2016 – Saturday - Corvettes on the Bay – Annapolis, MD, Registration is open. You must register on line and send a check. Space is limited and on a 1st come 1st serve basis.

SELF MADE BILLIONAIRE DAKOTA TRIUMPH FOUND DEAD IN HIS WINERY
Dakota Triumph, owner of many vineyards, wineries, breweries, and distilleries and self made billionaire has been found dead in his winery on Wednesday morning by his personal assistant. It is not known if his death was from natural causes, an accident, or maybe murder. His death is being investigated by Corvette County sheriff Bentley Packard who is questioning suspects. The suspects are his wife Mercedes DeVille-Triumph, his pilot/chauffeur Henry J. Hudson, his personal assistant Opal Maserati, his master wine maker Kaiser Ford, Mercedes' personal assistant Belvedere Fraser, and one of his vineyard employees Nash Crosley.

21-23 Jul 2016 - Mecum Classic Car Auction - Harrisburg, YCCC not participating. A few of us will attend to enjoy the auction.
WOT Event - 5-7 Aug 2016 - Friday - Sunday Summit Point Main - PorscheFest - Tom and Ed Heindel attended the 2015 event and found it to be a fascinating experience. Touted as the premier Porsche event for the Porsche-Potomac club, this is another 3-day event that is a tremendous value for the dollar. The variety of different models of Porsches in attendance is amazing. Being a short 2 hours away, S-P has been run numerous times by several WOT members and all have found it to be fast paced and technically challenging despite its short 2-mile length. This is an excellent event for all classes of drivers. Questions - contact Tom Ranc.

9, 10 and 11 Sep 2016 - Jets and Vettes on the Lex - This will be the last time this WWII carrier will be used for car shows because of elevator maintenance issues. The event will honor the 15th anniversary of 9/11. YCCC members attended this event in 2011 and 2013. Check out the pictures on our website. To us it was an event of a lifetime. I would think that there should be a dozen or so members who may be interested in such a trip. It's time to start thinking about it now. You will need to get registered starting 12:00am (Apr 1, 2016) when they accept registration. Choice hotels are fully booked. If you plan to go you need to book a hotel now. Your Vette will be on the carrier for two days and you will be walking. I am not sure if there will be any returning members. The Jones', the Boyer's, Mo Ranc and some others can give advice. Rod Beever will be coordinating this event. Let him know of your intent to go or if you have any questions, 755-2668 or email@example.com.
