About Us

LOCC Corvette Club

 The Lake of the Ozarks Corvette Club (LOCC) had its beginnings in late 1999 when Mary and Parker Darr (Co-founders) and Larry Lembach (Co-founder) decided to start a Corvette Club in the Lake of the Ozarks area (see photo 1). Although they did not have contact with any other Corvette owners at the time, they researched the topic and decided to start an advertising campaign utilizing television and newspaper ads, fliers, and word of mouth to promote a possible club. On January 10, 2000, they started a club with 2 Corvettes, one a 1989 and one a 1999. Rudy Willingham, who was a local business owner, saw the ad and came up with a list of potential members. Contacts were made from that list and from response to the ads on television and newspapers. The club had its first meeting at the Arrowhead Lodge in the “Wood Room” on April 9, 2000. To their delight, a total of 13 people showed up and the following individuals joined Parker, Mary, and Larry to become Charter Members: Betty and Bob Goble, Kerry and Benita Shannon, Marty and Peg Klaus, Eddie and Linda Smother, and Rudy Willingham. During the last decade, the club has grown to its present membership of 195 people.    

 The club is essentially a hobbyist club. As the club has grown over the years the challenge has been to stay true to its original purpose and goal of enjoying the camaraderie of other Corvette owners, to drive our cars and enjoy them on the road. We have a membership which is focused on staying true to these goals and our intent is to continue that tradition. The club actively attends and participates in community events such as the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the annual Christmas Parade held in Lake Ozark, and the Fall Follies held in Laurie, MO. Numerous members of the club attend a number of other car shows and events in the surrounding region as well. Scholarships are rewarded annually to several students from local Technology schools that are going on to advanced training and education in the automotive field
