Due to the rising need for volunteers in other areas, we are limiting this year’s event to one rallye eliminating checkpoints and the need for off-site volunteers. Corvette Weekend drivers can participate in an NCCC Sanctioned Rallye. As drivers and navigators tour the wide open Ocean City beach and countryside, watch out for the many interesting sights and views. Sit back, enjoy the ride, but keep your eyes open.

All drivers must possess a valid driver’s license, and if a child is to be the navigator, they must be 9 years of age or older on the day of the rallye in order to participate. If you are ticketed for lack of license plate, as required by your state law, you will be disqualified from the rallye per NCCC rules.

Both driver and navigator may receive NCCC points as long as the driver/navigator NCCC number is provided during registration. The Rallye is limited to 150 Corvettes, and registration is on-line only.

Yes you can ride your Corvette up the OC Boardwalk! This magnificent parade, which includes over 500 Corvettes of all generations, draws onlookers for the entire length of the boardwalk, spectators waving from hotel rooms, and a constant barrage of cameras flashing!  Don’t miss it.

We will try to keep clubs together as much as possible. Cars already parked in the inlet parking lot that participated in the Fun Shows will be the first to stage for the Boardwalk Parade.  FSCC members will be on hand to direct cars to the staging lanes for the parade.

Please follow the rules in your registration packet: keep the parade moving.  Remember, the Boardwalk Parade is a privilege granted by the town of Ocean City. Please be on your best behavior. We want you back next year!

DO NOT STOP ON THE BOARDWALK
