Aurora Open 8/24/17
Fourteen members of the Nebraska Corvette Association arrived at Poco Creek Golf Course in Aurora, Nebraska to participate in the 3rd Annual Aurora Open hosted by NCA members, Bud and Luana. The day started at 8:30 with freshly baked rolls prepared by Luana. Two man teams were then randomly selected by Bud. We were then off to play 9 holes of team competition using three different methods of play, a kind of Ryder Cup format, changing every three holes. A shotgun start allowed for us to complete 9 holes at about the same time.
At 11:30, Bud and Luana provided the NCA members with lunch consisting of relishes, pizza, and dessert. Two man teams were then randomly drawn again to start the second 9 holes using the format of “Chapman Scotch” where each player drives, the partner hits the other partner’s drive, the best ball is then selected and it is alternating shots the rest of the hole.
Poco Creek Golf Course proved to be challenging for the club members but was eventually conquered with no mishaps or injuries. Upon completion of play, Bud awarded team and flag prizes which were earned by various members at each of the nine holes for various demonstrated skills. Prizes were donated by Aurora Insurance, Pinnacle Bank, and Official NCA Tire Sponsor T.O. Haas.
Some members were already asked what date would be set for next year’s 4th Annual Aurora Open. I think we have to give Bud and Luana time to recover from the work and planning that went into this year’s event before looking that far ahead. Needless-to-say, it is the “look to” NCA golf event of the year.

50th Anniversary Celebration 5/6/17
The Nebraska Corvette Association became official in 1967, starting as mostly a racing club we've grown to enjoy racing, shows, trips, and a little food and drink here and there. We're lucky to still have quite a few original members in the club and close by, including Dick S who was the first president and now serving as president again in the 50th year. The only way to celebrate all the fun we've had was to have more fun and invite the public to join in. Kuck Motorsports hosted us all day beginning with a lunch time show and shine, Lucky's BBQ lunch, the Tartar Sauce Band, and cooling off wandering the great collection of Gary and Sue Kuck. We took a short break and members came back to the museum for dinner and a presentation by Will Cooksey a past plant manager at Bowling Green and life long racer. It was a great day to share memories, meet past members, and recognize some of the good we've been able to do through all those years.
