Meet the 2019 Board

President - Jimmy Clemmer

I had the opportunity to serve as the club President from 2006 to 2008. After watching this club grow and evolve over the years, I am honored to be the club President for the second time. I am a 20 year member joining the Beachcombers in 1996. I've owned six different Corvettes including a C3, two C4's, two C5's and my current C6. Hopefully, there is a C7 in my future!!! We are a very diverse group of members with interests ranging from racing, to parades, to car shows, to simply cruising around town in search of a good restaurant. Most people know me for my long time membership as well as my passion for keeping a clean car! Detailing 101 at my place is sure to be on the agenda for the coming year.

In addition to serving as past President, over the years I have assisted with autocrossing, held the position of car show chairman, organized the Christmas Party, hosted tech nights, organized several poker runs and numerous other activites. It is, of course the Corvette that brings us all together, but I have made many life-long friends through this whole process. As said by many other Beachcombers, we come for the cars but we stay for the people. It is an exciting time to help lead this group of Corvette Enthusiasts into the future. The Hampton Roads Corvette Community continues to grow with new owners every month. Hopefully we will plan activities throughout the year to draw participation from many of you. Join us soon and "Save the Wave!"


Vice President - Events and Activities - Joe Wryk

My wife and I have been members of the Beachcombers Corvette Club for about 10 years. In that time, we've owned two different C5's, a C6 and currently a C7. When we joined this club we weren't sure what to expect other than spending time with other Corvette owners. Since joining the Beachcombers we've met some of the most wonderful people all of whom enjoy one thing - Corvettes. The Beachcombers are truly a group of "Great People Driving Great Cars".

The Beachcombers especially enjoy the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their Vettes and travel to other locations whether it be local or a trip to Florida or to Kentucky or anywhere in between. Seeing new sights or revisiting old ones in our travels is something we don't get tired of. As we travel, the Beachcombers have been known to find some of the best Mom & Pop restaurants in the country as eating seems to be the second most popular pastime in the club. Hope to see you soon.

Vice President - Membership/NCCC Governor - Joel Wolf

I joined the Beachcombers Corvette Club (BCC) in 2007 shortly after purchasing my corvette.  The next best decision in 2007 I made was becoming a member of the BCC where I have met some fantastic people and have enjoyed participating in many cruises, parades and club events.

It was my pleasure planning the 30th anniversary cruise this year for the club and I am looking forward to welcoming new members and taking care of current members as the Vice President of Membership and your NCCC Governor.

Corvette Owner or Corvette Enthusiast
Corvette Owner or Corvette Enthusiast
by Jimmy Clemmer 

Which one are you? If you need to think about this question very long to answer, then you’re probably the first, a Corvette Owner. If you didn’t hesitate, then it’s likely that you are the second, a Corvette Enthusiast. Let’s take a look and see if there’s a difference. I’ll share some history of my own that relates to the topic as you will soon see. By the end of this, you too can determine if you are an owner or enthusiast. The intent is not to change you, because after all, we are who we are and no one should change…certainly not for the car they drive anyway. So as you read on, think about the question, “Corvette Owner or Corvette Enthusiast, which one are you?”
