    Glen Allen Day Parade – October 8, 2022

    O.D. Dave & Lori Dolan

     

    We’ve been invited to participate in the Glen Allen Day Parade again this year. If you’re available Saturday, October 8th, please plan to join us and we’ll make sure CCR looks better than the Mustang Club! 

         I recommend decorating our Vettes in patriotic redwhite and blue.    

      If you don’t want to go all out with decorations, grab a flag or two.  Check out Party City for flags, garland tinsel, balloons and other patriotic decorations that suit your fancy.  Masking tape or blue painters tape can be used safely to attach decorations with no damage to your Vette.  You can borrow our tape if you don’t have any.

     

    Meet at our house at 8 am (4148 Old Springfield Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060 – 804-640-9338).  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 very short -- we drive down Mountain Road and turn into Crump Park where we'll park to undecorate.  You can stay and enjoy the day's festivities or you can follow Dave to JJs Grille in the Crossridge Shopping Center at 10298 Staples Mill Road.

     

    Should be fun!

    Corvette Club of Richmond Cruise to Valley Road Vineyards-Lunch The Piedmont Bar & Kitchen

    LIMITED TO THE FIRST 40 REGISTERED MEMBERS!

    Please join us for a fall cruise on Saturday, October 15, to Valley Road Vineyards in Afton, VA., followed by lunch in our private room at The Piedmont Bar & Kitchen (formerly Shadwell's), Charlottesville.


    We will meet at Hardee's, 1945 Sandy Hook Road, Goochland, VA 23063 (this is in the Food Lion Shopping Center area) at 8:45 AM, on Saturday, October 15. We will meet in the shopping center parking lot BEHIND Hardee's. We will have a drivers meeting at 9:00, and depart promptly at 9:15 AM.


    We will take scenic VA-6 west to VA -151 to arrive at Valley Road Vineyards, 9264 Critzer Shop Road, Afton, VA 2568, about 74 miles in about an hour and 30-45 minutes.. The Winery opens at 10:30 AM, and we plan to be there by 11 AM. We will have reserved parking so that we may stage a Corvette Car Show and photo opportunity while there. We will have a Private Wine Tasting experience led by the Valley Road Vineyard Sommelier, which will be held in "The Library" exclusively for our group. The wine tasting will include 3 white, 1 rose, and 2 red wines; about 2 glasses of wine in all. The price per person for the wine tasting is $30 including a $5 gratuity. If you wish, you may forego the wine tasting and simply purchase a glass or bottle of wine. Price range for whites is from $25/bottle, and reds are priced from $25-$30/bottle


    While at the Vineyard we will begin selling 50/50 tickets, with each half of the proceeds going to two lucky winners. The drawing will be during lunch (and if you have not bought 50/50 tickets by lunch time, you may do so then, so as to not be left out!).

    After savoring the fruit of the grape, our happy group will depart at about 12:30 PM to cruise to The Piedmont Bar & Kitchen, 1791 Richmond Road, Charlottesville, VA 22911. arriving by about 1 PM. This is an easy 24 mile trip, mostly on I 64 east, toward Richmond.


    The Piedmont Bar & Kitchen will reserve parking for our shiny Corvettes, as we stage another photo opportunity and Corvette Car Show for Piedmont's customers! Our group will dine in a private dining room, ordering off of a menu especially prepared for our group. The lunch will conclude our cruise, and you may make your own way home.


    Due to space limitations of "The Library" at Valley Road Vineyards, this event will be limited to the first 40 people that sign up on line through the CCR web site. If you do not have intranet access, please contact John Rhoads, CCR Even Coordinator Extraordinaire, to register @  804-955-5894.So please get your registration in early! Do not miss this event!

    Revised, CRR Cruise Event

    Tim’s Crabhouse & Restaurant, Lake Anna, October 22, 2022

    Originally this was to be two events, 53rd Winery (Louisa) and Tim’s Crabhouse, (Lake Anna) for the afternoon and evening.  The change is due to 53rd Winery having another event the same day for the Louisa Animal Rescue League to raise money and have animal adoptions take place on the same day.  Also. Kirby Montgomery has a winery event on now scheduled for October 15th. Keeping all of that in mind, I believe that 2 wine events in a row was a little much.  Therefore, CCR will only cruise to Tim’s Crabhouse and Restaurant at Lake Anna. Tim’s menu is online for your review.


    Some CCR’s have already signed up for the 2-event cruise, with the change to Tom’s only you may wish not to attend and that is fine but let me know if you have changed your mind, and I will remove you from the list or you can go on the club website and remove your registration.  Right now, there are 14 couples that planned to attend.  More members are surely welcome, just sign up on the club website and I will do the rest. As to the time, afternoon cruise and lunch/dinner.  Susie and I plan to make the trip and meet with the manager find the best suitable time prior to the cruise  I will send out the meet and dinner times once I make the trip as firm times.


    Details:  CCR members and friends should meet 1:00 (est) and leave no later than 2:00 (est) pm, Saturday, October 22, 2022, 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, maybe sell some 50/50 tickets (bring $$), have a brief drivers’ meeting, and depart at 2:00 pm. The drive to Tim’s will take about 1½ hours along, via Route 6, to Route 522 North, and we will at arrive around 3:30 pm.  Tim’s address is 200 G Boardwalk Way, Mineral VA, 23117, right on route 522 North This should be an easy cruise, weather good tops down.   jer

    Rudee’s Details:  CCR has already made and confirmed the clubs reservations at Rudee’s for 5:00 pm December 3th. ***. The reservations are based on the number of members guaranteeing their rooms. If you want just to come to Rudee’s for dinner, please let OD know for the count.


    Route Details: The route is as follows; CCR will meet at the famous CCR starting point, the Exxon - Dairy Queen just off I-295 Route 5, 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 went last year had a great time! This event offers you a scenic caravan, great parking and dinner at Rudee’s. Your choice, if you want to 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 one of the last CCR cruise event of 2022.

    The club will have a large suite to socialize in once back at the hotel. LCR Game assuredly will be played in the lobby as last year, 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!


    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.
