Wishing Everyone Happy Holidays!
The Holidays Are With Us Again! - Christmas and a New Year will be here before we know it. 2014 brought some 'firsts' for CCO. We limited our roster and worked hard to deliver more and better events, drives, weekends and week-long trips. We added new sponsors and increased CCO's charitable footprint in our communities. We sadly said 'goodbye' to friends passed on and happily welcomed some new friends to to the group. And yes, many new Corvettes found homes in our garages. Overall, it was a great year for CCO. 2015 will bring even more new and innovative activities, places to visit and roads to travel - so lets get ready for an adventurous new year!
On behalf of CCO President Mike Nostro and the entire Board of Directors, The Corvette Club of Orlando extends best wishes to our membership, our valued sponsors, our website visitors, friends, followers and all the CCO Family... "For a Very Merry and Safe Christmas & New Year Holiday Season!"
Clermont - Saturday, October 25 CCO gathered at the beautiful home of Steve and Darlene Misciagno for a “Pot-Luck” Party. The evening could have been a Halloween themed event… or perhaps a ‘Murder Mystery at Midnight,’
but finally we decided to just bring and share a dish of home cooking, have a drink and hang out with friends! When thirty-seven CCO’ers get together, it’s going to be great fun and it was!
Hosts Steve & Darlene said “It was great food and everyone seemed to have a good time. It is a good idea to get the group out socializing so we can get to know each other better.”
The Misciagno’s are fairly new to CCO having joined in January of 2013. We appreciate how they’ve gotten involved attending events, helping at meetings and even opening their home for CCO gatherings on multiple occasions.
And oh yes, their family business is also a Gold Level Sponsor here at corvettecluboforlando.com! We are grateful for their hospitality and are looking forward to more events at their home!

Old Farts in Karts Weekend
Ruskin, Florida - September 19, 2014 - Twelve CCO Corvettes made their way south on back roads this morning, their occupants looking for a break from the daily grind and a great weekend of enjoyment with friends. Ed was again master planner for a great drive through rural Southwest Florida. First destination: Bunker Hill Vineyard & Winery, Bunker Hill, Florida - a Certified Florida Farm Winery located southeast of the Tampa Bay area. Larry and Lenora Woodham - proprietors, hosted our group, provided a nice buffet lunch and gave us an informative winery tour and comprehensive tasting of their varied and creative wines. CCO thanks the Woodham’s for their hospitality! Bunker Hill has established themselves as a Green Environmentally Responsible Vineyard and enjoys the distinction of being labeled “The Greenest Winery in America.” Visit bunkerhillvineyard.com for more information. Many CCO’ers made purchases, and we departed slow and safe in what had now become a significant downpour, destination: Ruskin, Florida, and the Inn at Little Harbor, where we would meet several more CCO members who traveled straight to Little Harbor, foregoing the winery leg of the weekend.

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. See More
