According to Sipes, the club is a member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) Eastern Region and that the club is a nonprofit organization. Sipes also stated the CCCM has been hosting the car show for over 10 years and that the last four years the show has been held at Jeff Barnes Chevrolet.

Sipes said the proceeds from the car shows have been donated to various organizations over the years. Last year, they donated their proceeds to the Carroll County Food Sunday, The Shepherd’s Staff and Gavin’s Fund at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Sipes said that this is an NCCC 7-Sanction Event, which means that the trophies will be awarded for first through third place in all classes (C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4, C-5, C-6, and C-7). They will also be awarding the “Best Engine,” “Best Exterior,” “Best Interior,” and “Best of Show.”

Throughout the event, they will also be hosting other activities, including Count the Marbles in the Jar, 5Dice High Roll, and a 50/50 drawing. They will also have a food truck, snowball truck and several vendors.

“Bring the family to look at the beautiful cars and talk to the owners,” Sipes said.

To be part of the car show, you may register onsite between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and pay a $35 fee. The drivers’ meeting is at 12:30 p.m. and the awards will be given at 2 p.m.
