2015 NCM 21st Anniversary Celebration and Hall of Fame Induction
September 3-5, 2015

 

In the 2 decades since the Museum opened the scope of the vision has blossomed to include changes such as the dedicated special exhibit hall, dedicated PDI delivery area, full service store, interactive exhibits and a full motorsports park. 

Every year around the Labor Day weekend we celebrate the Grand Opening of the Museum in 1994 with a participant focused event.  This year we mark the 21st Anniversary milestone and focus on the diversity of the people that Corvette has brought together for a look back on the Museum’s history and forward to the future!  Registered can enjoy 3 days of activities in and around the Museum including access to interesting and unique road tours, special video presentations, raffles, the annual open Membership meeting and more during this event in honor of your help and support! The event will also include the Lifetime/VIP dinner, 10/15/20-year member recognition, Ambassador Luncheon, and the “Corvette Hall of Fame” Induction Ceremony and banquet where we will induct new members into the prestigious and elite group of recipients who have made a significant contribution to Corvette history. 

Hall of Fame inductees for 2015 are Rick Hendrick, Herb Fishel, and Russ McLean. Individual seating and group tables are available. 

Anniversary registration is no charge to Lifetime members, $20 for members and $30 for non members with deadline for online registration 5:00pm central, Friday, August 14th, 2015.  Early registration includes a hard card badge, lanyard, event pin and dash plaque.

MOKH -The house that came to symbolize Kentucky’s gracious hospitality and according to legend inspired Stephen Collins Foster to write his immortal song, “My Old Kentucky Home” is one of the most cherished historical sites in the commonwealth.
When visitors walk into the Old Talbott Tavern, there's a feeling about the place. It's well kept, but the passage of time is evident in a few creaking floorboards.
