Sinkhole at the Corvette Museum!
Something we thought only happened in Florida! A sinkhole at the Skydome of the Corvette Museum swallowed six of the Museum's precious (and irreplaceable) Corvettes, to include the 2009 ZR-1 Blue Devil. Thankfully, the perimeter of the Skydome has been declared as stable. The Museum is open, but the Skydome portion of the tour will be closed. If you didn't get the email from the Corvette Museum, you can get the detail from the coverage by CNN here. The Corvette Museum also posted videos and pictures.

The Space Coast Corvette Club was organized in 1973 by our first President Jerry Allen. He felt that the Melbourne area was ready for a dynamic Corvette Club and survived their first year by conducting car washes and other events to raise money. The Space Coast Corvette Club had later filed for incorporation with the State of Florida on May 19, 1977.
The club's constitution describes our purpose adequately: "To provide its membership an opportunity to participate in organized competition and promote greater enjoyment of their Corvettes." "To promote and participate in community activities in order to develop a greater understanding and spirit of cooperation between the community and all automotive enthusiasts."
Space Coast Vettes, a non-profit organization, has sponsored several fund raising events since 1973. Some of the organizations that have benefited are: Hacienda Girl Ranch, East Coast Zoological Society, Harbor city Volunteer Ambulance Squad, Florida Children's home, and many others.

Important note about the use of 2014 Corvette Stingray pictures on our websites.
Use of the 2014 Corvette pictures, logos, and artwork were discussed at the September meeting. Since that meeting, we have been informed that members CAN use PHOTOS of their own PERSONAL 2014 Corvette on their personal web sites, club web sites, and social media. For example, if your club hosts an activity and someone has their own personal 2014 Corvette at the club activity, a photograph of the car can be used on your club web site, your personal web site or social media. To avoid possible confusion, I would recommend that you state that the photo was used with permission from the owner. We are not allowed to use the imaging of a 2014 model, or logos, that may be available through various media outlets, in conjunction with any NCCC club logos, club merchandise, club literature, club stationary, etc. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
