WELCOME TO SOVETTE.COM
As Chevrolet rolls out the Seventh-Generation Corvette, let us welcome you to the Second-Generation website for Southern Oregon Corvette Association (SOCA).
Like Chevrolet did with the Corvette, SOCA assembled a team to begin building the next generation of its website long before it was ready to hit the streets. We partnered with Accurate Design Services of Medford, OR to start construction from the ground up. Both teams had quite a task before them.
The new Corvette needed to be quicker, easy to operate and powerful, sovette.com needed the same qualities. The C7 had to reflect its 50 plus-year heritage. Sovette.com needed to reflect the 41 year history of our club. The C7 Corvette must compete globally. Sovette.com will also reach around the globe. The next generation of Corvette had to take the car to a new level. Our new website had to take us places we’ve never been before. And it will. In style.
"Our newly redesigned website, sovette.com, will be a tremendous tool for us as an organization," SOCA Past President Sandee Anderson said. "We’ll reach people now who otherwise would never have heard of us."
The new Corvette is not without controversy. You either like the headlights and taillights, or you don’t . Whether to build a totally new website also caused much discussion among our membership - in the end, the membership voted to allocate resources for the project.
"I don’t own a computer, I don’t go on-line," said founding member Don Hubbard. "But, I know a well-done website will benefit the club and I’m all for it." Hubbard said.
Hubbard, who was at the original SOCA meeting on June 12, 1974, used to follow Corvette owners home to tell them about the club. With sovette.com we can tell millions of people -- in the Northwest, across the US and around the world -- about us, about our activities, upcoming events, recent happenings, and all things Southern Oregon Corvette.
The anticipation surrounding the C7 was intense. Many SOCA members were also eagerly anticipating the new sovette.com. We hope those members -- and the rest of the world-wide web -- were not disappointed. Like the C7 Corvette, sovette.com will be easy on the eyes. The new Corvette will out perform the C6. Sovette.com will far out perform the website that preceded it.
Over time, Chevrolet will make modifications -- slight modifications, most likely -- to the C7, in an attempt to better their effort at redesigning the legendary car. Sovette.com, too, will be a work in progress. We will modify. We will ‘tweak’. We’ll take the feedback and response that we get to this website and try to better our efforts as well.
With interest and input from our members,
and a a lot of work by the committee,
this is what we’ve come up with so far.
This is sovette.com...
Enjoy the Ride!
