    A first time event. We will caravan to Christiansburg, VA to tour the Duncan Import and Classic Car collection. The collection has over 1200 Import and American muscle and Classic Cars. The imports include cars, vans, trucks, limos and ornate Japanese hearses rarely seen in the USA. Did I mention Japanese fire trucks?  For your preview, the following link will take you to the Duncan Import and Classic Cars website: https://www.duncanimports.com


    We will meet at the WAWA on Route 360 (12001 Southshore Point Dr., Midlothian) at 7:30 AM and depart at 8:00 AM. We will arrive in Christiansburg around noon and eat lunch at the Due South Pit Cooked BBQ restaurant. At 1:00 PM will drive to The Duncan Collection to begin the tour. They are open until 5:00 PM. This is a self-guided tour but most of the cars have vehicle information on their windshields. Did I also mention nearly everything is for sale?  Mr. Duncan indicated that he would try to be present on part of the tour as he can provide a lot his personal information on many of the vehicles.

    After you have seen all you want to see head over to the Quality Inn (50 Hampton Boulevard) and check in (It’s less than a mile away).  You will need to make your reservations by calling (520) 505-2289. Let them know you with the Corvette Club of Richmond to get the $79.00 + tax rate.


    At 6:30 we will leave for dinner at the Farmhouse, a local favorite, for a 7:00 PM dinner.

    See the June and July Newsletters for more details. Wear your CCR shirts and nametags and bring your club radios.  We'll have a good time! Questions?  Call us at John at (804) 955-5894 or Mike at (804) 869-6836


    There is no cost for this event, however Mr. Duncan supports the Brittany McCann Project, Inc. Brittany has cerebral palsy. The remarkable part is that the money is not for her or her family. She runs a ministry that reaches out and takes care of children from underprivileged families and children with illnesses from her wheelchair and her connection on face book and social media. You can check out her work at http://brittanyproject.com.

    CCR Glass House Winery Tour and Lunch at Shadwell’s Restaurant; Charlottesville; Saturday, October 19

       

    Event Details-READ carefully as action items are requested 


    On Saturday, October 19, please join us for a fun cruise with fellow CCR members to the Glass House Winery in Free Union, VA; followed by lunch in a private room at Shadwell’s Restaurant, in Charlottesville. 


    The Glass House winery features Wine as well as hand made chocolates, all made right on the premises! Owners Jeff and Michelle Sanders moved to Virginia in 2006. They were awed by the lush landscape, the
    beauty of the Blue Ridge and the friendliness of the people in Virginia. While searching for a way to marry Jeff’s botanical skills with Michelle’s love of creating unique chocolates, the couple discovered Virginia’s promising wine industry and many wineries. It was a perfect match and Glass House Winery was born. They have built a tropical conservatory attached to the tasting room.  It is filled with tropical plants surrounding tables and walkways, where you are welcome to sip Glass House wines and enjoy the company of fellow CCR members. Tasting's are $10 ($12 if you want to take home the logo etched wine glass) and include a sample of their hand-crafted chocolate. The Glass House Winery will open one hour early especially for CCR at 11 AM! We will have the place entirely to ourselves until 12 noon! Upon arrival, we will stage our Corvettes in front of the winery for a photo shoot. Kindly be patient and follow the direction of the CCR Parking Marshals upon arrival. At the winery, we will sell 50/50 tickets for $1.00 each. We will draw two winners at lunch, each receiving 50% of the money collected. Good luck!


    Our lunch stop takes its name from the birthplace of Thomas Jefferson, Shadwell. It is classic American food featuring authentic Chesapeake Bay seafood dishes. Assuming our group is more than 20 people, you will select from a menu specifically selected by your CCR venue preview team. This is a moderately priced establishment with sandwiches priced between $11 and $16. You will be able to order appetizers, house salads, and a main course. Adult beverages are available. CCR participants will receive individual checks, and it will include a 22% gratuity on food and beverages (not tax). CCR will have reserved parking in front of the restaurant, and we will plan a photo shoot. Once again, upon arrival, please follow the directions of our CCR Parking Marshals.


    This event will be limited to 40 participants, such that the Glass House winery can efficiently serve our members, and due to the capacity of our private room at Shadwell's. You will be officially registered only through payment of your $10 per person wine tasting fee, on a first come basis. Payment can be sent to me by check to Kirby Montgomery, 809 Merchant Lee Court, Manakin Sabot, VA.23103.Upon receipt of payment you will officially be registered for this event. Should you wish to attend, but not participate in the wine tasting, your $10 registration fee deposit will be cheerfully refunded, or you can spend it on Glass House Winery Chocolates! Anyone registering by making their deposit payment, and for whatever reason cannot attend, will receive a refund. Upon registration, please indicate with a note included with your check if you wish to participate in the wine tasting, or in lieu of the wine tasting experience, simply prefer to order a glass (or a bottle) of wine and forego the wine tasting. 


    Registration for this event will end as of Monday. October 6, as we have to deliver a headcount to the winery and restaurant as of that date. So please register early!


    We will meet on the morning of Saturday October 19  at 8 AM at WAWA, 12564 Broad Street Road, Henrico, VA 23233. This is the WAWA just East of 288 on Broad Street. Do not meet us at the WAWA just East of I-64 on Broad Street, as we will not be there! There will be a driver's meeting at 8:15 AM, and we will depart promptly at 8:30 AM.  Bring your radio, and we will have a limited number of club radios available. We will take the scenic route to the Glass House Winery with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as we get near. It is a beautiful drive, and at this time in October we are hoping for nice colors! Driving time will be about two hours. We will make a rest stop after about 1 1/2 hours, and then continue on to the winery. We expect to arrive at the winery at 11 AM, and depart shortly after noon. It is approximately a one-half hour drive from the Glass House Winery to Shadwell's, where we are expected at 1:00 PM.


    Following lunch, your return home is at your leisure. Marcie and I hope you can join us for this fun CCR event!
