Dear Prospective Member:
Thank you for your interest in the Corvette Club of Michigan. Please let us extend an invitation to attend one of
our meetings, so you can see the Club in operation. Membership meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of
each month (except in December) in the employee cafeteria of Les Stanford Chevrolet, 21730 Michigan
Avenue, Dearborn. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. and generally consists of a business meeting, swap and
sell, and a program pertaining to Corvettes. Coffee and donuts are served.
CCM was founded in 1958 by a group of Corvette enthusiasts who shared a common desire to have fun in
their Corvettes. Throughout the years, our membership has grown to several hundred participants from all
walks of life. We have families with children, couples, and singles that all enjoy CCM activities. Our goal is to
bring together Corvette owners to enjoy each other’s company as well as their common bond: The Corvette.
Requirements for CCM membership include being at least 18 years of age for master membership, a valid
driver’s license, and proof of Corvette ownership (or lease). In joining CCM, you will also become a member of
the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC). Your spouse, companion, and/or youth are welcome to join as
members at a reduced rate. Please see the attached sheet for membership fees. You will also receive a
discount on Corvette parts purchased from our sponsor, Les Stanford Chevrolet.
Our website, www.corvetteclubmi.com, provides information about the Club, competition (including a
competition handbook), and social events. Throughout the year we host both social and competition
activities. Listed below is a brief description of some of the events we offer:
Socials: Social gatherings include an annual family picnic, cruises, an annual awards banquet, caravans,
and pool or bowling parties. Our social committee is always looking for suggestions for activities our
members would enjoy.
Drivers School: This annual school introduces new members and novice drivers to the competition season. It
consists of two parts: a classroom session and a driving session. Attendees learn about the elements of
different types of events, tech inspections, and safety tips for competitive driving.
Autocross: This is a time-based competition that tests your driving skills through a mini road course of pylons.
The course is usually set up in a parking lot, and participants are timed separately driving through the course.
Rallye: This is a competition event on paved roads where you follow a prescribed route at a defined
speed to a finish point. You pass through checkpoints along the way and calculate your time, speed,
Concours: This is a show where your Corvette is judged for cleanliness and condition.
Drags: This event involves drag racing other Corvettes in your class at a sanctioned drag strip. Even if
you’re not going to participate, it’s a fun outing to go to just to watch.
Time Trials: This is a competition on a closed course such as Waterford Hills Road Racing Course, where
you can test your driving skills at greater than freeway speeds.
As you can see from the list, we have a wide variety of activities. As a member, you can participate in the
events and socials that are of specific interest to you. We hope you’ll be able to join us at a meeting and
share your interest in Corvettes with other Corvette enthusiasts! Fill out the attached application and mail it in
with the necessary documents and a check for the dues. See you at the next meeting!
