January 2014 - Newsletter


The extremely cold temperatures deterred some of our members from our January meeting at Maggie’s on the River.  The 22 who attended though enjoyed the great food and socializing.



New Members since last newsletter:


Cary & Janet Brick – 1998 Black Conv.

Shawn & Becky Tiffany – 2008 Black Coupe


It seems everyone has C-7 Fever!  I’m sure by now you’ve heard and probably seen pictures of Gary & Karen Baechle’s new Limerock Green baby.  (See Below)  We hear John and Heather Price have a C-7 on order, but won’t take delivery until summer.  Everyone else is just “green” with envy.



Some of our Canadian members have formed a new Corvette Club – Eastern Ontario Corvette.  We wish them luck with this new venture.  It’s nice to have more enthusiasts to go “Vette’n’” with! 


Our February dinner/meeting will be a pizza party, February 26th at Art’s Jug, Watertown.

The cost is $15.00 per person and is payable in cash only.  Social hour begins at 6:00PM and dinner at 7:00PM. Tom Cheney is the contact person:  Tom@CheneyTire.com or 315-783-6840.


The 7th Annual Casino Bus Trip is scheduled for Saturday March 8th.  Tom Cheney is the contact person.  The cost is $35.00 per person, payable in advance to NNYCC, and is non-refundable.  You will receive $25.00 in free play and a $5.00 food coupon.  We ask that you arrive at the Freeman bus garage on Marble Street by 8:00AM and sign in at the office.  Last year several people went directly to the buses and didn’t get signed in.  A copy of the flyer with all the details will go out with this newsletter.


Tom is organizing a Club trip to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky.   At this time, the dates have not been finalized, but we expect it to be either the last week in April or the first week in May.  The trip will most likely take four days.  Please let Tom know if you are seriously interested in participating.



Don’t forget to pay your dues!  As of this writing there were still a few spots left in the drawing for the restaurant gift card.
