National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) A meeting was held on Dec. 1st to research the NCCC Bylaws compared to our club bylaws to see if there are any conflicts, etc. No conflicts were found. It was suggested that the club pay the NCCC dues for all members who have their club dues paid by the January meeting. After a short discussion, Jeff Bruggeman made the motion that the 4-State Vettes would pay for the NCCC dues for those members who have their 4 State Vettes dues paid by January 31, 2009 and any one paying after that date would have to pay the NCCC dues themselves if they desire to join NCCC. Seconded by Mark Rountree. Motion passed.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST CORVETTE—When Bobby Ballard was 10 yrs. his next door neighbor worked for Willie Burtram and often drove home a corvette. Bobby
wanted 3 things, a corvette, a trampoline, & a swimming pool. He never got the trampoline. Bob & Jane have the Joplin Hertz franchise and Hertz offers a Fun Collection of cars that the 100 or so franchisees can put their name into a lottery for one of 30 chances to buy one of that year’s cars. In 2007, the Ballards purchased one of the available Shelby Mustang convertibles and in June, 2008 they got their 2008 Corvette. These cars are special editions. The 2009 one will be a Corvette Convertible.
Mark Rountree asked that anyone who has pictures of the events at Eureka Springs this year contact him. He has a request from the promoters for pictures to publish.
