Introduction

Welcome to the 28th Anniversary of the Free State Corvette Club Corvette Weekend, Ocean City Maryland! Corvette Weekend is scheduled for October 3rd and 4th, 2014. On-line registration for the 2014 Corvette Weekend closes at midnight on September 14th. After this cutoff date, late registration will be open at Ocean City for all events except the purchase of the buffet dinners. Late event registration and apparel purchase is based upon availability. Once again, the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel at 10100 Coastal Highway will be our host hotel. Proceeds from this event sponsor the Spina Bifida Association of Maryland and other area charities. You do not need to be an NCCC member or belong to a club to participate, all you need is a Corvette!

Overview of Events

Corvette Weekend kicks off Friday morning at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel. Park your car and come into the hotel’s Grand Ballroom. The ballroom will be open from Friday at 11:00 AM until 8:00 PM. You will be greeted by our welcoming committee. Once you complete your initial paperwork, you will be directed to the pre-registration table to pick up your packet, or to the late registration table where you can sign up and pay for your Corvette Weekend events (Cash, check and credit cards accepted). After clearing registration you will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets, 50/50 tickets, etc. You will then enter the apparel area where you can pick up your pre-purchased order of merchandise (highly recommended) or purchase official show apparel on the spot, based upon availability (Cash, check and credit cards accepted). And finally you will be able to stroll the aisles of the many vendors tables set up. Once you leave the Grand Ballroom you will want to take your car to the teching group to have your car inspected (required for all cars).

Friday night features our Dance party. This party is held upstairs in the Clarion Resort’s Crystal Ballroom from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM. Attendance is included with the Corvette Weekend General Registration. Wear your dancing shoes and get ready for a great party with live entertainment and a cash bar. For an additional fee, a buffet dinner will be available.

Saturday morning, late registration will be at the Inlet Parking Lot from 7:30 AM to 10:00 AM. Show and Rallye participants must be registered by 8:30 AM, checked in with Show/Rallye personnel by 9:00 AM and be present at the Drivers Meeting. Registrants in the fun shows will park your cars in our secured show area, wipe them down, and then enjoy viewing your fellow Corvette enthusiast’s cars. Also, those registered for the car rallyes will stage their cars in an area adjacent to the fun show before heading out on an adventure around the Ocean City area. Early afternoon the participants for the boardwalk parade will begin to stage their cars in the secured Inlet parking area.

 

At 4:00 PM the parade begins with the hundreds of Corvettes cruising up the Ocean City boardwalk. Following the boardwalk parade, travel back to the Clarion Resort for the Awards Ceremony. Admission to the awards ceremony is included with the Corvette Weekend General registration.  In addition to presenting awards to the show and rallye winners, the evening will be filled with weekend highlights, raffle winners and a few additional surprises. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening. For an additional fee, a buffet dinner will be available prior to the ceremony.

The Awards Ceremony denotes the official end to the 2014 Free State Corvette Weekend.
