Meet the Wisconsin Corvette Club Board Members
Bill Burkhart, President
Owning a corvette has always been a goal of mine which was fulfilled in 2017 when my wife and I purchased a 2016 C7 Stingray. From casual driving to track time at Road America, I love every aspect of the cars elegance and performance.
Shortly after purchasing our corvette Lisa and I joined the Wisconsin Corvette Club. Being part of the club has introduced us to experiences we would not have participated in such as rallys, low-speed, autocross, and some pretty awesome social events. The best part though has been meeting and getting to know new friends.
As with most people, a Corvette was always a dream car of mine to own. I purchased my first one in 1981. I have owned several since then—currently co-owning both a 1992 and 2003 –both convertibles with 6 speed manual transmissions—my wife-Chris states it’s not a Sport Car without a stick. Chris gave me a membership to the Wisconsin Corvette Club as a birthday present many years ago.
Since joining WCC, I have held various positions in the Club both as an officer and chairperson of different committees. WCC offers its members many ways to enjoy their Corvettes. But the best thing about the Club in my opinion is the friendships I have made with others club members. I would not have met these people without being a member—it is amazing how a love of a Car can bring people together.
Sabrina Milewski, Secretary
Corvettes have been a big part of my life since I was a little kid. I always had the most fun when my father took me out on rides in his beautiful 1964 stingray and 2007 C6. Being able to go to rallye’s and races with my father will always be my fondest memories. Now, I hope to make my father proud with what I accomplish in the future.
Doug Grelk, Treasurer
I am retiree from the Miller Brewing Company where I worked 32 years as an engineer. I have been married to my wife, Meg, for 47 years and have 4 adult children and 7 grand kids. I have been a member of WCC since 2008 and a past president of the club. I am currently the club treasurer. My first corvette was a 2008 C6 coupe that I purchased new. Then in 2009, I purchased a 2004 Z06 which I used for low and high speed racing for many years. In 2019, I traded my 2008 C6 and 2004 Z06 in for a 2019 Grand Sport which is now my main racing corvette. I also purchased a 2020 C8 Stingray. Now I share my time driving the C7 Grand Sport and C8 Stingray.
Even as a teenager, I was always interested in muscle cars with my first car being a 1969 Camaro Z28. My wife and I purchased our first Corvette, a 1967 Stingray convertible, in 1999 and added to our family in 2015 a 2012 Grand Sport. Currently, we have all 3 cars. We love the Corvette for its high performance, great style, and its ability to drive almost anywhere.
Shortly after buying the Grand Sport, we joined the Wisconsin Corvette Club. One of the best things about being a Corvette owner is the comradery amongst fellow Corvette owners. The international hello and respect sign is the “wave “as you meet another Corvette while driving. At WCC, if another member is in need, the club steps up and offers support in whatever form is needed to help that person. WCC is truly about cars and lifelong friendships. Borrowing a phrase from NCCC, we come for the cars and stay for the people.
