 Notes and News 
National Corvette Caravan and NCM 20th Anniversary

Bowling Green, KY - It was the morning of Wednesday, August 27th. Corvettes began filling the parking lot at the Florida Turnpike’s Okahumpka Service Plaza, coming in from the official NCM Florida Caravan’s opening day of activities in Sebring. Florida Caravan Captain, Carrie Sue DeLeon, was parked in the lead position and began distributing goody-bags and handbooks.  Everyone milled about the parking lot reconnecting with old Corvette friends and caught their last snacks and bathroom breaks.  Others arriving from many Central Florida origins, including twenty-one CCO Corvettes, found parking anywhere possible as an estimated two-hundred cars assembled for an official Florida Caravan launch just before 10:00 AM.  Finally the word went out to “roll” and the journey began.

2014 Homecoming Season Kicks Off

August 4, 2014 - CCO's annual Homecoming Parade Fundraising Program officially kicks off this week as VP of Fundraising & Special Projects, Don Ianitelli, announces the scheduling of our first two confirmed events. Members are encouraged to go to the My CCO Calendar to learn more about these events. But more important, CCO needs a lot of folks to get excited about volunteering time to help organize these events. Convertible owners are especially important as your cars are used exclusively for parades - and for good reason - it's why you own a convertible, to have a great view, and so your spectators also have a great view.  General event / date information is found on the 'Future Activities Review' to the right, then click into the My CCO Calendar for that date to learn more.

To School Administrators interested in CCO supporting your Homecoming Parade: We want to talk to you!  Please contact our VP of Fundraising & Special Projects - Don Ianitelli.

Email Don via his CCO email address di-vicepresident@corvettecluboforlando.com

Congratulations to Bruce & Pat Miller as their 2011 Grand Sport Callaway SC606 has been selected as CCO's Corvette of the Quarter! Click the image or the link below to see the Millers's full BIO on this beautiful and very rare Corvette at our Corvette of the Quarter Gallery!

CCO Members, do you want to know more about how you can submit your Corvette for consideration?  See the Corvette of the Quarter Rules for Submission. 

July Fourth Gathering a Real 'Blast..!'
Greg & Kay's signature smiles while preparing smoked specialties for CCO to enjoy..

July Fourth - Greg & Kay have this Happy Birthday USA thing figured out! Once again they open their home to CCO for an afternoon of fun with friends. An estimated forty CCO'ers showed up bringing favorite recipes to share along with Greg's signature smoked specialties. Needless to say we ate good. The dessert table was full including a custom decorated CCO sheet cake!  Soon, CCO's two water volleyball teams went into heated battle, playing several games while the spa ladies dodged out of bounds serves. (Sorry there's no pics of gameplay...) Judges Jim and Dan managed to somehow keep the peace as the two teams loudly objected to almost every call.

The gang enjoying 'Fourth Fare' and pool fun..

After the games ended those in the spa and others waiting to take a dip gathered in the pool for a little low-impact fun and leasurely conversation. As the evening progressed we all began to anticipate Greg & Kay's now-traditional annual pyrotechnics display. As the sky darkened, their back yard lit up 'like the fourth of July' and we all enjoyed the show!

Where there's smoke - is there fire?
Happy July 4th from CCO!!

Thanks to all who attended and contributed to the food and fun!  And a very special CCO thanks go to Greg and Kay for their very gracious hospitality.  As Greg was heard to say over and again as we were departing "With CCO, it's always fun!" We would agree.

"No Guts, No Glory" Trip a Big Hit!

Pahrump, Nevada - June 8 - 11, 2014. Ten CCO members and three guests - some with spouses and family members, left Spring Mountain Motorsports Park / Ron Fellows Performance Driving School on June 11th with new driving skill-sets and a newfound passion for C7 Corvette.  All graduates of the Ron Fellows technique-intensive 'Level One' program, our guys are quoted as saying the school and the new Corvette both exceeded all expectations!  The school was three full days of classroom driving concepts, on-track basic handling in dry and wet conditions, safety, shifting, braking and cornering exercises, all emphasizing enhanced visibility and awareness - all in showroom floor, stock C7 Corvettes.  Instructors rode shotgun, demonstrated behind-wheel and lead or followed each student in small groups of four cars every day - communicating with us via two-way radio. Day three included several open-lap sessions where we were able to practice new-found high performance driving techniques.  Over the three day period we racked up well over 200 miles of seat time.  While we all learned new high performance techniques for on-track applications, the primary benefit will be that the skills gained in enhanced visibility, handling, shifting, braking and cornering concepts can be applied to everyday driving.  And, as far as measuring our individual experiences with the new C7 Corvette - pushing the car to our own limits, we all know this new car has performance capability far exceeding our abilities! C7 Rocks!  Spring Mountain is a state-of-the-art, motorsports country club with all the features any automotive enthusiast would ever need.  If you enjoy spirited driving, be it in a Corvette or what ever one enjoys driving, a driving school at Spring Mountain should be on your must-do short list! Thanks go to a tremendous staff of Spring Mountain instructors headed up by Rick Malone and the support staff at the school and resort. Thanks also go to Don Ianitelli for his diligent work with the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School on school and condo arrangements at the resort, to John Bradham for publicity, and Mike Nostro for assisting many of us with after-school, Las Vegas accommodations at Caesars Palace and flight arrangements!
