Message from the Chairman,
Dear NCRS Northeast Chapter Members,
In 2024 we again look forward to a full calendar of Chapter events. First up, on January 27th we are offering a Judging School focused on members with minimal or no prior judging experience. One judging point will be awarded for attendance at this event. But more importantly this session is focused on helping members get a basic understanding of the judging process and to get them ready for their first judging experience. We look forward to providing you with a detailed understanding of the judging process and taking time to answer all of your questions. Rob Rohloff is currently pulling this event together and soon will be announcing further details.
Our big event of 2024 will be the New England Regional on May 31 through June 1, 2024 in Marlborough, MA. This event will be co-hosted by our Northeast Chapter and the New England Chapter and will serve as a feeder to the 2024 National Convention in Hampton Roads, VA on August 4-8, 2024. Planning is underway for our regional and we will need our members to support and volunteer at this event. Registration is open on the www.NCRS.org site along with a link to the host hotel for booking your room. Please book your room through this link to ensure that you receive the special NCRS reduced room rate. Registration is required for anyone participating at the event even if they are not showing a car. Your help is needed and there are many volunteer positions open at this time. Please reach out to Jay, Mike, Rob, or myself and we will be glad to discuss open positions with you and help you select one that you would like.
Since our last newsletter in September, we hosted two more Chapter events. First, on October 28th we conducted a road tour to North American Motorcar in Danbury, CT followed by lunch at the nostalgic Sycamore Drive-In in Bethel. Then on December 2nd we hosted a Holiday Luncheon and toy drive at the Sunset Grill in Watertown. Thank you for your generous donations of toys as they were donated to the CT State Police Toy Drive on Sunday December 10th. We met up with members of Club Corvette of CT at MacDermott Chevrolet and were then escorted as group south on I-95 by the Connecticut State Police to their barracks in Bridgeport where we brought in all the toys that literally filled a room! Even though the weather was not the best on that day, it was impressive to see so many Corvettes brave the weather to transport toys.
I would like to end this message by saying thanks to everyone who contributed, participated, and supported our many chapter events in 2023. It is through your selfless participation that we are able to provide our chapter membership and others a full complement of NCRS chapter activities in this year. And I would also like to say thank you to our members, guests, and participants as well and I hope you enjoyed and benefited from some of the events.
Also, membership dues continue to remain at $25.00 for 2024. If you have not done so already, please remember to renew on-line via the NCRS National website www.ncrs.org or by mail using the form available in the newsletter or on our Chapter website www.ncrsnec.com. A $10.00 late is assessed after February 28th.
If you have any ideas or recommendations for events, or would like to host an event, please bring your ideas forward to our Chapter officers. Our contact information can be found on our website www.ncrsnec.com.
