    Zip Products Customer Appreciation Day Event, October 2, 2021, 8076 Fast Lane, Mechanicsville, VA 23111-- So mark your calendars and plan to attend on October 2.  Zip is one of our great sponsors. The CCR Board ask all members to attend and show our support and appreciation for their event and purchase Corvette specific products and see their new shop facilities.


    Zip does not have a flyer for this event, but here is some information from Zip regarding the event and ask that this information to be sent out to the CCR membership.


     “Zip Corvette will host a Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, Oct 2 from 9am-3pm. Stop by Zip anytime that day for lunch, music, and a showroom discount! Please be advised that Zip has added a new building to its campus, so parking is much more limited than in previous years. In order to welcome as many guests as possible, you are encouraged to "cruise in and out" throughout the day. *Trucks with trailers will not be permitted on Fast Lane for this event. Please plan to drive your Corvette


    Also, there is a second event the same day, which is the Cruise to the Tavern On the James in the late afternoon, 2:00 pm, to Scottsville Virginia.  Should make for a great day with both events taking place.

    “Corvette Cruise” on Saturday, October 2, 2021

    Tavern on the James

    280 Valley Street, Scottsville, VA 

              ** This is the same route traveled and place we dined in October 2019 and November 2020.  **

    After stocking up on Corvette merch at the Zip Products Customer Appreciation Day and feeling the joy of being part of the CCR community after the 60 + 1 Anniversary Picnic, you are going to want to jump into your ride for a late lunch/early dinner at Tavern on the James.  The menu is available on their web page (https://www.facebook.com/TavernOnTheJames/), and they can accommodate 15 to 50 people with no trouble.

    Tavern on the James is located at the junction of VA Route 6 and VA Route 20, just north of the James River.  The drive is a scenic one (maybe with some colorful fall leaves) along River Road (Route 6 -- through Goochland, Fork Union, etc.)   Folks can order off the menu at regular prices and will be responsible for their own tabs.


    Details:  CCR members and friends should meet between 2:00 and 2:30 pm, Saturday, October 2, 2021, in the parking lot for Food Lion (11272 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, VA) and McDonald's (11280 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, VA), just west of Lauderdale Drive. We will take roll, sell some 50/50 tickets (bring $$), have a brief drivers’ meeting, and depart at 2:30 pm.  The drive to Scottsville will take about 1½ hours along via River Road (Route 6), and we will at arrive between 3:30 and 4:00 pm.  There is ample parking in the rear of the building by the pavilion that is used for their farmer's market. 

    This is a “rain or shine” event.  If the weather is bad or you have more guests than seats in your car, then feel free to drive your OTCs (Other Than Corvettes).

    Please register early because we must provide an approximate head count on Thursday, September 30, 2021.  

    We hope you will join us!

    Glen Allen Day Parade, October 9, 2021

    OD -Lori Dolan


    This year is the 25th Anniversary for the Glen Allen Day Parade! In the past we had great turnout for this event. Hoping we will again this year, I've registered us for it. Although Corvettes are beautiful enough naked, I'd like us to decorate them in patriotic red, white, and blue. After all, we ARE America's sports car!


    Check out Party City and grab your flags, garland tinsel, balloons and other patriotic decorations that suit your fancy. Masking tape or blue painters’ tape can be used safely to attach your decorations. I've used these for years with no damage to my car.


    Meet at Dolan’s house at 8 am (4148 Old Springfield Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060). Grab some coffee and a quick bathroom break. At 8:30 we'll drive a mile down the road to our staging area where we'll decorate our cars. We'll have to work fast, step-off is at 9:30.

    The parade route is just over 1/2 mile so it should be easy on your clutch foot. We drive down Mountain Road and turn into Crump Park where we'll circle around and park to un-decorate.


    You can stay and enjoy the day's festivities at the park, or you can join us at JJs Grille in the Crossridge Shopping Center at 10298 Staples Mill Road.


    Please sign up in the events books, register online or call Lori Dolan’s Cell 640-9338, so we can plan our parade lineup.

    Update 9/21: Virginia Beach December Event:

    CCR Cruise, Virginia Beach Boardwalk Lights Tour, Stay Overnight Springfield Suites and Dinner at Rudee’s Restaurant on the Inlet

    This event is a sun, rain, snow event!

    (OD’s Carr & Rhodes)

    Sat, December 4, 2021, 11:30 AM – Sun, December 5, 2021, at Virginia Beach. Overnight reservations are to be made by each member with the Marriott Springhill Suites. Reservations for 5:pm dinner at Rudee’s Restaurant On Inlet will be made by CCR.


    Hotel Details: Presently, CCR has made an agreement with Marriott Springhill Suites Beachfront, Virginia Beach**. CCR has agreed to block an additional 5 King rooms. The club group rate of $122.00 for the King and Queen rooms.


    There are 5 King rooms available at this time for the club. The parking is free, one space per room. This block of rooms when gone is gone. Afterwards and you decide to attend, you can make your reservation with the Springhill Suites or any other hotel of your choice.

    CCR Members are required to make their own hotel reservations direct with the hotel by calling the hotel to make and guarantee their reservations. The hotel has agreed to provide CCR a 72-hour cancellation policy before December 4th, if necessary, by any pre-registered member of CCR.


    So, if planning to attend, register on-line with CCR’s website, email or call me. I will see that you are on the CCR Registered List. The CCR list is provided to the hotel and updated as needed, in order for the hotel to know you are with CCR. Once this block of CCR rooms is gone it will be at the hotels discretion if they can accommodate your request.

     

    Rudee’s Details: CCR has already made reservations at Rudee’s for 5:00 pm December 4th. **.  Members are welcome to cruise down and eat at Rudee’s and return home afterwards if they choose to do so.


    Route Details: The route is as follows; CCR will meet at the famous CCR starting point, the Exxon - Dairy Queen just off I-295, New Market exit*. Then cruise the back roads, (Rt 460, 58 and the last leg, I-264) to Virginia Beach, and the hotel. Route map and directions will be provided the day of the event.


    If you have never been to this event, why not? Those of us who have gone in the past know you will have a good time! This event offers you a scenic caravan, great dinner at Rudee’s. Your choice, if you want cruise on the boardwalk for $17.00 per car (standard shifts will be no fun) or from the hotel balconies to view the holiday lights and socialize with your CCR friends at the hotel as the last CCR event of 2021.


    The club will have two large adjourning suites to socialize in once back at the hotel. LCR GAME assuredly will be played, so there will be a need for a lot of $1.00 bills. Then you have the rest of the month for your Christmas shopping!


    If you’re interested, check out both websites for the Springhill Suites and Rudee’s. The club’s website has many of the past event pictures over the years of this event.


    As we move forward updates to members will be provided as to what may be brought for snacks etc. As always make sure you have your club radios and name tags with you.
