Scottsdale Corvette Club Mission Statement

 

To enhance the experience of Corvette ownership through the support system and fellowship of its members.  This is achieved in an interactive social environment of monthly meetings, activities, road tours and a newsletter. This forum invites the sharing of experiences, knowledge and fun, while creating an atmosphere that perpetuates the leadership position of America's only true sports car.  All that is asked of its members is professionalism, integrity, personal ethics, and a love of the Corvette.

 

History:

 

The Scottsdale Corvette Club was founded as an Arizona nonprofit corporation in August of 1999.  The Club’s first newsletter went out in August of 1999.  We had twelve member-families and the purpose of the newsletter was to present to the members the proposed structure for the Club and to ask them to vote for the officers/board members who had volunteered to serve.  Originally the Club had two dinner meetings per month.  Starting in January 2000, dinner meetings began to be held once a month on the second Wednesday of each month. In 2001, the Club became affiliated with Van Chevrolet as its official sponsor. Over the years the Club has had some fabulous events, road trips and parties.  Each year the holiday party, which is subsidized by the Club, is held at a local golf club with dinner, music and dancing.  The Club activities each year comprise a mixture of day trips (such as the southern Arizona wine country, and to Flagstaff for lunch and a tour of the Riordan Mansion) , a few overnight trips (for example, to Bisbee and Tombstone) or weekend road trips( we’ve been to Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Santa Barbara, Santa Fe), house parties (it may be a pot luck dinner,  golf and barbecue, or to a member’s home after the Toy Run), and quarterly dinners at local ethnic restaurants (such as Fogo de Chao and Takeda Thai).

 

The Club has engaged in charitable activities over the years.  Currently the Club supports the Ronald McDonald House by decorating  furnishing and maintaining one of the apartments for families there; the décor is, of course, Corvette-oriented.  The Club also contributes toys to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots each year, with members driving their Corvettes in a caravan to Van Chevrolet to deliver the toys. 

 

The Club calendar of events has traditionally been set up prior to the end of each year to allow members to make advance plans to participate in Club events throughout the year.

 

 

VETTE VIXENS

On the third Wednesday evening of each month, the women of Scottsdale Corvette Club are invited to dine together at a different restaurant each month.  It’s an opportunity for the gals to get together and get better acquainted, and a great way to try new restaurants.

 

MEN'S NIGHT OUT

On the third Wednesday evening of each month, the SCC men get together at a member’s home to play poker.  This is an opportunity for the guys to get out and play cards.  Beginners are welcome, so you don’t have to be a “card shark” to participate.

 

VAN

Van Chevrolet is the Club’s sponsor, located at 8585 East Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard in Scottsdale, Arizona 85260 

 

NCCC

The Club is a member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) with 100% membership affiliation.  NCCC dues are paid by each member as part of the annual dues collected by the Club.  The Club is in the Roadrunner Region of the NCCC. 

 

RADIOS

The Scottsdale Corvette Club encourages members who attend monthly events, both one day and over-night trips, to purchase the Motorola CLS-1110 radio.  Reasons are safety, caravan efficiency, and fun. The lead Corvette can communicate route changes, rest stops, debris/obstacles in the road, and safe passing.  In addition, the radios assist the lead and tail Corvettes in keeping the caravan together.  This is critical in city traffic and traveling in unfamiliar areas.  The radios also allow participants to communicate with the lead Corvette. Participants can communicate mechanical problems or the need for an unplanned rest stop.  If an individual or group becomes separated, they can easily reconnect with the caravan.  The radios are also fun.  Participants share quips, observations and information.  More information on obtaining the radio is included in the membership packet.
