North Central Chapter Cancels All Activities Through August 6
During the April North Central NCRS Board Meeting, it was decided to follow the lead of the NCRS and cancel all in-person events for the North Central Chapter through August 6, 2020. This will include all chapter events, judging schools and tech sessions. It will also include the 2020 Regional Event which was set for June 11-13 in Rochester, Minnesota. Refunds for the Rochester Regional will be forthcoming and hotel reservations have been cancelled, members do not need to contact the hotel. The Board will continue to meet monthly via conference call to discuss future events.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

2020 NCRS Convention Cancelled
In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the evolving guidance from the CDC, federal, state, and local authorities, the NCRS Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Convention planned for July 19-23 in French Lick, Indiana. The health and wellbeing of the NCRS membership was foremost in our mind as we made this decision.
Refunds will be made to those who have already registered. This will take some time so please be patient. The French Lick Resort has already, or will shortly issue a blanket cancellation of reservations made in the NCRS room block, so there is no need for you to call the hotel to cancel your reservations.
We are strongly recommending that all NCRS Chapters continue to follow CDC, federal, state, and local guidance until the coronavirus pandemic is behind us. At a minimum we suggest that you cancel any events planned between now and the end of the Convention blackout period, which would have run through August 6, 2020.

Paragon Rewards Program – 2019 Results Announced!

The North Central Chapter wrapped up our fourth consecutive year in the Paragon Rewards Program earning $680.00 in rewards dollars for 2019.  Since the program’s inception in 2016 the Chapter has earned over $2,000.00 in rewards dollars.  All rewards dollars are returned to chapter members in the form of Paragon gift certificates at Chapter events such as tech sessions, judging schools, and chapter judging meets.

The 2019 rewards dollars will again be received as Paragon gift certificates and will be used as silent auction items, and raffle items at the upcoming June 2020 Regional, plus chapter events throughout the year.

The chapter currently has in excess of 35 members participating in the Rewards Program.  We owe a great big thank you to these 35+ members for purchasing Corvette parts from Paragon Corvette.  THANK YOU!!
