 Notes and News 
CCO Celebrates the Holidays in Style!
CCO Gathers at Heathrow for Annual Celebration

Heathrow, Florida - On Saturday evening, January 3rd, CCO celebrated another great year, recognized the teamwork that makes CCO successful, ate & drank well, and acompanied by great music - danced our way into 2015.  This year's event was held at the exclusive Heathrow Golf and Country Club in beautiful Seminole County.  We need to recognize the efforts of event organizer Rena Woodley who thought of everything, working closely with Toni Curlin at Heathrow to put together a really great event.  Thanks also go out to John Bradham who supported Rena and energized the membership to attend, Rich Craig for his photography and to Susan King for keeping track of the bank!  

Please see full gallery of Rich's action photos here or visit our Gallery Menu.

On behalf of CCO President Mike Nostro and the entire Board of Directors, The Corvette Club of Orlando extends our thanks to our membership, our valued sponsors, our website visitors, friends, followers and all the CCO Family for making sure that 2014 was a great year!

Stay tuned as 2015 will be even better...!

CCO To Reopen Membership Opportunities for 2015

Orlando, Florida - The Corvette Club of Orlando is pleased to announce that on Monday, February 2nd, the application process for new member induction will open for 2015.  After careful consideration, the Board of Directors has approved an increase in our annual Membership Cap number for 2015. And, with a small number of known non-renewals from our 2014 roster, we anticipate inducting several new CCO members in 2015.  Our leaderhip continues to be mindful of the primary reason for a limited number of members.  In 2014, the Cap enabled CCO event planners to design and implement events more members could attend and to create drives/caravans that were manageable in size with safety in mind.  Our goal in 2015 will be to continue to promote fully enjoyable events for everyone involved - planners and participants alike!  

Once CCO reaches its 2015 Membership Cap, our roster will be immediately closed and application request links dissabled.  So, if you are interested in joining CCO or desire more information about memberhip opportunities and the application process, please visit Join CCO soon!  A link to "Request an Application" be sent to those desiring to join CCO will be activated on Monday, February 2nd - also to be located at Join CCO. Act fast to increase your chances of  joining the "Most active Corvette Club in Central Florida!"

~ CCO reserves the right to alter all aspects of membeship management without prior notice. 

Community Corner Returns

In keeping with CCO's commitment to our communities, the feature "Community Corner" returns in 2015 with it's debut spotlight on a very worthy cause - the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  CCO members Wayne & Terry Levesque (Team Flava) are heavily involved with AFSP and are promoting the 2015 8th Annual "Out of the Darkness Community Walk" which is raising funds to support research, education and prevention initiatives to reduce the loss of life due to suicide. Please consider supporting AFSP and Team Flava!   For more info click this link: Out of the Darkness. We appreciate your support!

Congratulations to Rich and El Craig as their 2015 Z51 Roadster has been selected as CCO's Corvette of the Quarter! Click the image or the link below to see Rich's full BIO on this beautiful and rare Corvette at our Corvette of the Quarter Gallery!

Pot-Luck Gathering

Clermont - Saturday, October 25 CCO gathered at the beautiful home of Steve and Darlene Misciagno for a “Pot-Luck” Party.  The evening could have been a Halloween themed event… or perhaps a ‘Murder Mystery at Midnight,’ 

but finally we decided to just bring and share a dish of home cooking, have a drink and hang out with friends!  When thirty-seven CCO’ers get together, it’s going to be great fun and it was! 

Hosts Steve & Darlene said “It was great food and everyone seemed to have a good time. It is a good idea to get the group out socializing so we can get to know each other better.” 

The Misciagno’s are fairly new to CCO having joined in January of 2013.  We appreciate how they’ve gotten involved attending events, helping at meetings and even opening their home for CCO gatherings on multiple occasions. 

And oh yes, their family business is also a Gold Level Sponsor here at corvettecluboforlando.com!  We are grateful for their hospitality and are looking forward to more events at their home!

Old Farts in Karts Weekend

Ruskin, Florida - September 19, 2014 - Twelve CCO Corvettes made their way south on back roads this morning, their occupants looking for a break from the daily grind and a great weekend of enjoyment with friends. Ed was again master planner for a great drive through rural Southwest Florida.  First destination: Bunker Hill Vineyard & Winery, Bunker Hill, Florida - a Certified Florida Farm Winery located southeast of the Tampa Bay area.  Larry and Lenora Woodham - proprietors, hosted our group, provided a nice buffet lunch and gave us an informative winery tour and comprehensive tasting of their varied and creative wines. CCO thanks the Woodham’s for their hospitality!  Bunker Hill has established themselves as a Green Environmentally Responsible Vineyard and enjoys the distinction of being labeled “The Greenest Winery in America.”  Visit bunkerhillvineyard.com for more information. Many CCO’ers made purchases, and we departed slow and safe in what had now become a significant downpour, destination: Ruskin, Florida, and the Inn at Little Harbor, where we would meet several more CCO members who traveled straight to Little Harbor, foregoing the winery leg of the weekend.  Click for More...

National Corvette Caravan and NCM 20th Anniversary

Bowling Green, KY - It was the morning of Wednesday, August 27th. Corvettes began filling the parking lot at the Florida Turnpike’s Okahumpka Service Plaza, coming in from the official NCM Florida Caravan’s opening day of activities in Sebring. Florida Caravan Captain, Carrie Sue DeLeon, was parked in the lead position and began distributing goody-bags and handbooks.  Everyone milled about the parking lot reconnecting with old Corvette friends and caught their last snacks and bathroom breaks.  Others arriving from many Central Florida origins, including twenty-one CCO Corvettes, found parking anywhere possible as an estimated two-hundred cars assembled for an official Florida Caravan launch just before 10:00 AM.  Finally the word went out to “roll” and the journey began.
