Favorite Vette Fun: I'm a hard competitor, so the relaxation and camaraderie after the events is the best!

Favorite Vette Fun: This may sound crazy, but I love working all kinds of events. I assist other clubs with their sanctioned events within the East Region. If there are no workers there would be no events!! When not helping other clubs, I enjoy taking long rides on winding rural roads with our Z51.
Michele says: I have made many friends within NCCC over the years and I enjoy the fellowship of our local club, the Regional group and also with National. Get involved--it's loads of fun!!

Debbie Lindsey ~ Director of Sponsorship
Southwest Region ~ Cowtown Vettes
Spouse: Jerry
Kids:  Colin and Brent
Corvettes:  2014 Night Race Blue convertible
Favorite Vette Fun: For events, it would be autocrossing although I have not done this since 1992. Working with conventions has given me the opportunity to meet many people in NCCC that I would not have known otherwise and this has created a lot of "Corvette Fun" for me.
Debbie says: My association and involvement in NCCC has given me some of my closest friends in life including my husband and I am very thankful for that! I hope that we can all be encouraging and positive with each other as that is what motivates people to want to do more and become more involved!

Favorite Vette Fun: What’s there not to like about anything you can do with a Vette??? We’ve done just about all of it ~ social & competitive and it’s hard to pick a favorite.
Pat says: Participate in Corvette activities whenever you can. You’ll never regret the time spent with your Corvette “family”. Volunteer to help your Club, your Region and NCCC ~ you’ll find it very rewarding. And don’t forget that FCOA is the foundation of NCCC’s 21st Century!
