Corvette Cleveland Joins the One Acre Club

Corvette ClevelandCorvette Cleveland, Inc. was established in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1957 by five Corvette enthusiasts and is one of the oldest Corvette clubs in the country. Over fifty years later the club has grown to approximately 117 members with
strong participation in various events around the country. 

“I recently brought the idea of joining the One Acre Club up at both the club’s officer’s meeting and our general member meeting, and everyone agreed, ‘Let’s try it and see what happens!’”, said Corvette Cleveland NCM Ambassador Berry Pinney. “ We hit our goal two months later!  It is a great feeling to help get the Motorsports
Park off the ground.”

Corvette Cleveland joined the One Acre Club to support the Museum and see the Motorsports Park through to completion.  The Corvette Cleveland members are all
very excited about attending events at the track. They hope to continue supporting the Museum and the Park in any way possible.

Georgia Caravan Captain Announced

"I am most pleased to announce the appointment of Mitch Talley as the Georgia caravan captain.  Mitch and his wife Cindy are residents of Calhoun,GA where he has resided since birth.  He is the present Director of Communications for Whitfield County and serves as the editor of Calhoun Magazine.  He is presently a contributing writer for Keith Cornett's Corvetteblogger.com.  Mitch has been a Corvette enthusiast since he was seven years old and is now passing that torch down to his children, especially his fourteen year old son, Christopher, who will be traveling with his dad in the 2014 Caravan.  He bought his first Corvette in 1983 and has since owned eight other Corvettes. 

The present Corvettes in his garage are a silver 1981 coupe and a red 1997 coupe.  Mitch and Christopher were thrilled to meet and discuss the new C7 Corvette with Tadge Juechter and Dave Tatman at Road Atlanta last fall.  Now, the latest dream is to take museum delivery of a new C7.  Mitch and Christopher are excited to be heading up the Georgia Caravan and encourage all Georgia and surrounding area Corvette owners to contact them at photosbymitch59@yahoo.com  for more information on the event."
