Then on Saturday, September 4, Fill Corey of Perryville, Kentucky's lucky ticket number 10095 was drawn for our 2011 Black Convertible! Pictured are NCM Team Members Christy Thomas and Wendell Strode, and Chevrolet Corvette Marketing Manager Harlan Charles, who drew the ticket.
Your next chance to win is next week, Thursday, September 16 at 2pm when we raffle the chance to "Build Your Own" Grand Sport with $50,000 cash option. This raffle lets you choose between the cash, a convertible or coupe - plus pick your car color and options. Tickets are only $200, and the raffle is limited to 1,000 tickets.

Additional Caravan Captains Named
The third group of our captains for 2014 has been selected and all are experienced caravaners and most with previous captain duties. They will be putting together their organizing teams in the near future and will be calling on those in their areas for assistance. We urge those planning on participating in the 2014 caravan to volunteer early to help them so a high level of refinement can be reached in time to ensure the smoothest, most satisfying caravan yet!
