COTV Annual Picnic
June 9, 2019



As the date for the annual picnic drew nearer, the Leadership Team got more concerned as summer weather seemed never to arrive. Remember our Memorial Day 2019 MLR? Well, if you were there, you would remember the rain, cold and fog and just missing a snowfall at Lake Arrowhead. It seems that we fretted and worried in vain, as Summer is here, folks, and it arrived just in time for the picnic.

In 2019, we returned to a familiar former location for our picnic, Wolf Creek Park in Temecula. The advantages to this park are numerous – grassy lawns, easy to find location, gazebos with concrete picnic tables, restrooms (although they ARE park restrooms so no 5 star amenities!) and parking in either the lot or on the street backing the park. The disadvantages are less numerous but can be daunting – no reservations taken, no alcohol allowed, no food vendors on site just deliveries. 
So we worked around them to provide a happy day in the sun for the membership.

A group arrived early to stake out as many tables as needed with yellow caution tape, which means most of the park. Thanks to Ray and Judy for giving up their very early morning on a busy family day to meet at the park, clean tables, empty trash, do the preliminary set-ups, lay out the bocce ball court, and hang around until Doug and Marilyn arrived to continue with the early prep. Thanks to Bill Stedfield for picking up our old tables from Scott Dittmer at Precision and bringing them and a nice big cooler at 9am. Thanks to Wayne and Daphne for bringing their new car to continue helping to set things up. Thanks to John and Jerri-Lynne for helping with a Costco dessert shopping trip in advance. Thanks to Harry and Sharon for bringing the pop-ups to put over the food tables. Huge thanks to Curt and Darlena for so much – researching food vendors and ordering both Dickey’s barbecue and pizza, for bringing more chips from another Costco trip, and setting up a Hawaiian themed “photo booth” and taking numerous pictures of the happy attendees. Really Huge thanks to Mike Re for organizing the whole shebang, doing his own shopping for drinks, and being there early to set up and staying later to clean up.


We thank the members (we think there were 66 of you!) who came to have fun and to do what we do best, eat and talk. It was good to see both the old (in terms of membership, not age) members like Bill and Sandi, Joe and Rosemary, Vance and Susan and Mike and Micha, as well as the newer ones, the Erhardts, who are now turning up more and more so must be enjoying their car and maybe the company and the Orsinis who are not so new any more.

A final big thanks to those stalwart folks who stepped up to help clean up. The true worth of a friend is measured by their willingness to clean up someone else’s mess before an event and then clean up their own mess after one of our own. Good luck to whoever plans next year’s picnic, because Mike has set a high bar to meet!

It Did NOT Rise Over the MLR

IMGP5720


Wow! What an amazing and mysterious lunch run this was! Remember, before you read further, that the Memorial Day weekend is the “unofficial” start of summer. Jim and Diane took that into consideration while planning this trip into an unknown (and invisible) world, but Mother Nature didn’t play fair with them at all.


We had 22 cars at the meeting place, with all of us standing around shivering under umbrellas, hats and extra jackets. Jim had warned that we needed full gas tanks and since most of us have experienced a “Sommars Special” MLR before, we took him at his word. It was the usual group, although Norm and Ronette brought along Christian and Alexis, newly wed folks who are a rare exception to the current younger generations and seem to have the “car gene.” The Erhardts, relatively new members, were literally getting their feet wet in the MLR experience.


The general directions to the group, with Jim in the lead and Bill Stedfield in the rear guard, were to go north on the 15 to the 215 and then keep going. Marilyn Glenore was the only wise one of the group as she changed direction part way through and headed home, thinking that she didn’t want to drive in the rain for a long way without a co-pilot. Smart decision, Marilyn!


The weather didn’t get any better except for brief breaks in the rain as we headed northbound on the 215, zigging and zagging through Riverside as required, then continuing uphill onto CA 18 and Waterman Avenue. Because we were so spread out, we lost three cars who missed the Waterman exit, but they found us later. At the Carl’s Jr potty stop, we had 18 cars so we knew we were shy a few, but unsure exactly who. Remember that if you are out of line of sight, you probably can’t hear the radios either, so we had no way to talk to the little lost lambs. That is why we have the secret instructions and that is how the group ended up in the same place.


Actually, it is amazing that any of us ended up in the same place. As we climbed higher we got into FOG, FOG and MORE FOG, so could hardly see the car in front of us on the tight, curvy roads up to Crestline, Blue Jay and Lake Arrowhead. Our lunch destination was in Lake Arrowhead Village and we did all end up at the Lake Arrowhead Deli. A lot of other folks were in the Village and also in the Deli as they had gone into the mountains for a fun in the sun long weekend and ended up in the rain, with the potential for snow (which did actually fall in the later afternoon!).


The Deli serves pizza, hot and cold sandwiches and salads. As Diane said, it was amazing that on a day like this, they had no soup available. The servings were sizeable. Ask Marti about her gigantic calzone! Lots of to-go boxes went back down the hill with the departing Corvettes.


Well, it was not we expected, not what the Sommars planned, but it certainly was an adventure. As Darlena said, we should do this run again but in better weather so we could actually see the Lake and also see where we were going. Thanks to Jim and Diane for all their planning, but obviously you can’t control Mother Nature.

Sunday May 19, 2019

It was a much more “intimate” group from COTV than in past years and did not put us in the running for the prize for club participation which was won, of course, by Pacific Coast Corvettes and Simi Valley Corvettes.

Rob and Daryl and Dave were waiting by the side of the road on Kettner and led the rest of the group into the park. Due to the impending rain storm several members (Chuck Calagna and Gary Miranda) opted not to come down for the event. Bill Stedfield had car problems, although he said his car was clean and ready. Curt Stevens had become a regular at Urgent Care so was unable to make it either. That meant there were 7 cars and 12 members registered and among the first cars to get in the gate. That allowed us to get a primo parking area. Doug and Marilyn had their own spot near various vendors and the raffle booth so they could make their best effort to add cars to the list going on the NCM caravan. Mike Re attended his first Plastic Fantastic.

Unfortunately, just after everyone had cleaned their cars again, the sky opened up. We had a series of light showers and then some heavy rain. Because of the weather, overall attendance was probably 50% of registration. Then as the rain came back on and off, about 50% of those who came started to leave. As we all found out it did give us a better chance at winning raffle prizes. However, it was disappointing for North Coast Corvettes who put so much time and effort into organizing the event.

We all voted our ballots and went over to Harbor House for our annual lunch, but this time indoors. By the time we got back at 12:15 they were moving the raffle drawings up and planned on giving out the prizes just after 1pm. Rob and Daryl were the last of the COTV members so watched to see if they needed to collect trophies for anyone in the club, but alas it was not our lucky year.

As this is being written later in the afternoon, the sun is out. No matter what happened with the weather or the prizes, we had a good time together at Plastic Fantastic for another year.
