First to understand what the show is about you must first understand what NCCO is about, or not about.
NCCO stands for Non Club Club of Oklahoma. Basically, if you have a Vette, you are a nonmember of the NCCO and yes you can be a member of a formal club and still be a non-member. While that may leave you scratching your head, but it is simply a group of Corvette enthuses that likes to get together to go on cruises, meet other Vette fans, and put on charity events.
What makes us different? No meetings or formal origination.
How can this work? Well, a small core group of less than a half dozen, works on getting donations, promoting, etc. throughout the year. Then at the show, many non-members show up to help, park cars, etc.
We have had many great supporters and when I say get a donation, we get donations or sponsor for all the trophies and we get premium trophies, no plastic trophies here, we get great donations for our silent auctions, Landers Chevrolet of Norman sponsor our event shirts and we sell them for the donations, we do not charge vendors, we ask for a donation. So, the time the show everything is paid for, so as one of the members says, “every dang dime goes to Toys for Tots Oklahoma Chapter.”
Since we are not a club, we hold nothing back for our non-club. The Marines show up in full dress uniform, along with the Twin Peaks girls in their uniform, to sell 50/50 tickets and volunteer to have their picture taken along with your Corvette.
How well does all this non- origination work? This year our 13th annual we were able to raise $15,000 with the support of all great attendees.
We had 159 Corvettes traveling from Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Indiana, Louisiana, Iowa, and of course Oklahoma.
We have lots of fun and as we often say our Corvettes have introduced us to a lot of great people. Hope to see more great Corvettes and great people next year.
