The Main objective of Southeastern Wisconsin Corvette Club is FUN!
We get together often as a group to talk about our cars,
any problems that someone may be having with their car and then find
someone within the group who has the knowledge or background to help
solve the problem. The only requirement to join our club is to appreciate
and enjoy Corvettes, No one is required to own a Corvette. We hold an
Annual Corvette/Chevy Show to raise money for local charities such as
The Shalom Center in Kenosha, The Love & Charity Mission in Racine,
The Salvation Army, American Cancer Society as well as Spina Bifida.
This Club has a very humble beginning, a few friends who
owned Corvettes decided it could be fun to meet on a regular basis and
hold shows for the public. That was back in 1972, the club has continued
to grow and change through the years, with only one of the original
members still in the club. Our club show however has been held every
year since and continues to grow in the number of cars on display. Over
time our show has come to encompass all Chevy products, as to give a
little more variety for those who come to look at the beautiful cars
We enjoy a very wide range of activities. A Bowling Party
in February followed by a Membership Party around St. Patrick's Day.
A group will head down to McCormick Place in March to spend a day at
Chevy/Vette Fest. April will usually have an early Spring "dust
your car off" Vette Run which typically takes us on a ride through
Kenosha/Racine Counties. Once again in May someone volunteers to put
together another Saturday or Sunday ride. Coming into June we get busy
- the weather is getting nice and we get antsy. The 3rd weekend is our
pre-Bloomington party, the last weekend is our "pilgrimage"
to Bloomington. July usually has a 4th of July picnic followed the next
weekend by the Bristol Progress Days Parade-what better why to show
off your Corvette than to be in a parade! Another run or rally is usually
around the corner as we are also very busy preparing for "Our"
show. August brings us to our Show on the 3rd Sunday, anticipating 150+
cars, yes, it's a great day! Again more lake runs through the beautiful
Kenosha County Lakes. The end of September is the American Cancer Poker
Run, which is always a good time and a very worthwhile cause. Into fall
we go, usually we have a fall colors run into Racine County for a last
look at the gorgeous fall colors and a near final outing in the vettes.
Into November there is usually a car show to attend and that leads us
into a Christmas Party in December....I believe this should be enough
to keep almost everyone busy.
