6/25/17 Mystery Lunch Run Hosted by Karen & Dave Hellman

Hellman, Dave & Karen

6-25-17 MLR resize 72 6-25-17 MLR resize 22

A warm, sunny day saw 17 of COTV’s corvettes gather at KOHL’S for the June MLR that was hosted by Dave and Karen Hellman. Participation was a little smaller than usual due to many of our fellow members being on the Tahoe run. Those of us who went on the MLR were treated to a wonderful outing. At the safety meeting, Dave introduced our guests, Terry and Jan Munn as well as John Vara’s daughter, Heather and his mother, Barbara who was in town to celebrate her birthday (June 26). As an extra treat, Penny and Mike Healey brought fresh, home grown peaches to share with us (yummy and refreshing). As advertised, Dave led the caravan out of the parking lot promptly at 9:40. We travelled south on I-15 where we made a stop at “The Deer Park” near Welk Resorts. Here we toured an amazing museum that included everything from Barbie dolls to one of a kind cars (miniature and full size). After enjoying 11/2 hours at the museum we continued our journey to our lunch destination, Morgan Run Club and Resort which is located in Rancho Santa Fe. The service and food were excellent, but, as usual, the highlight was the camaraderie enjoyed with our fellow corvette lovers. A heartfelt thanks to Dave and Karen for a great job.

COTV Annual Picnic 2017

.

 

We have tried to substitute our annual club picnic for a Mystery Lunch Run, but when it falls on Memorial Day Weekend, it just doesn’t work very well. So, this year it was determined to hold it on Sunday, June 4, which of course was one of the hottest days in this recent period.

.

 

Simon and Terry Bleeker, who last year rejoined the club after a long break to raise kids and who bought a new C7 just so they could have a great car to drive on MLRs, volunteered not only to organize the picnic but, silly them, to host it at their home in the Glen Oak Hills area of Temecula. They promised that their 8+ acres would be large enough to hold as many of the group as wanted to turn up and that there would be horseshoes and bocce ball, etc. for those who wanted to do something more active.

.

 

We had decided this year to revert to our old-style picnic, which means the club pays for the main course and everyone brings something to add to the meal – salads, side dishes, snacks, desserts. When you have 106 RSVPs by the day of the event, the more food the merrier. Most of us met at the usual place, Kohls’ parking lot, and convoyed to the Bleekers house about 9 miles away. Some, like the Watsons who live “just around the corner” met us there. It was already pretty warm and sunny when we set off at 10:35, led by our fearless Jim Sommars, without Diane who was at family events in OC. There were obviously lots of beautiful Corvettes and a few other vehicles. Leonard drove his harem of Carol and Willie, so had the truck. Jerri Lynn drove her Jeep since John is still disabled from his surgery. The Patrons drove two cars since they brought the two kids.

.

 

It is impossible to mention all 100 or so picnic fans individually, but we had Norm Luckuck, who has been a member since 2005 and came to celebrate a cancer-free birthday with all his friends. Samantha and Frank Caliandro joined us and literally joined the club at the parking lot. Hans and Alma are in town for a few days between trips and were there. The Glenores and Stevens were all back from their European travels, although the Glenores got caught up in the British Airways travel mess while the Stevens’ plane left just before the computer system crashed. The Priebes came in the Pace Car because it is a convertible. Chuck Sherman, who is alternating between his daughters, brought Debbie. We don’t often see Dayton and Pam Taylor but Dayton was helping the Bleekers’ son direct the parking and Pam was helping Terry in the kitchen. Stuart Bleeker had just graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering this week, all in preparation for parking and trash collection duties.

.

 

Speaking of the kitchen … there was so much food that no one could possibly go hungry. There must have been 20 salads and you could get a chocolate high just from being in the room with all the desserts. People loaded up their plates with the first course of salads and snacks and took them back to their chairs under the old oak trees. Then Simon started cooking hamburgers and hot dogs, which could be topped with Terry’s chili if you wanted. By the time Simon had been at the barbecue in the sun for a while, he was ready for a fully clothed dive into the pool. Some ate their meats at the tables inside or out and others headed back to the shade.

.

 

After lunch, there was more conversation and some attempts at group photos (so many people, so little space!) or there was always a continuation of the horseshoe matches. Finally people started packing up to head out with many thanks to the Bleeker clan for a wonderful relaxing day, with our favorite activity first on the list – EATING! See you all at the meeting this week, or on the way to Lake Tahoe with 18 cars, or on the Mystery Lunch Run at the end of the month. What FUN we can have!! Thanks again to the Bleekers. We loved it!

05/25/2017 Breakfast at the Bombshelter

The-Bar

Bombshelter Sports Bar & Grill

 

With 22 Corvettes on the edge of the runway and 47 hungry mouths to feed, COTV started another successful breakfast social, our 3rd in 2017. This was our second visit to the Bombshelter at Skydive Perris at the Perris Airport, but for some it was their first. Bill Stedfield, our retired Navy pilot, was in heaven with all the photos and planes on the ground and in the air! We bet he will be back, probably meeting up with Skip Hipp, who is the one who suggested this venue to Carol and Marilyn the first time around.

.

 

The sky was very overcast and the temps pretty cool after our recent very warm weather. When Leonard spoke with the guys at Skydive Perris, they said that they were not sure the planes would be able to go up as the ceiling was too low. While the event had been described as “breakfast and a show”, the group was more than willing to focus on the food first with hopes of entertainment afterwards.

.

 

The real early bird contingent consisted of Skip, John Meyer and Bruce the Bat, who got there before the staff even had time to clean up from last night’s party at the Bombshelter. As more early arrivals appeared, long tables were set and covered in red to celebrate our breakfast. Our newest member, Chuck Calagna, who joined at the last general meeting joined us for the meal. Some hungry members arrived solo for a hearty meal. We welcomed back the McIntoshes and Hans from their European travels and were glad to hear that their trips went well and that the weather generally held and they didn’t run into a terrorist event where and when they were there. Wayne York, who found us in an Internet search, brought along his soon-to-be wife, Janet, to see if we were enough fun for them. We hope that they will join.

.

 

The drill at the Bombshelter is to stand in line by the menu board, place an order and pay and then listen for your number to be called and go pick up your loaded plates of food at the window. It works amazingly efficiently, although you might not feel that way if you were the last to get in the order line. As we all ate and chatted both the noise level and the cloud cover rose. By the time we were finished and the plates cleared, the plane had dropped streamers to determine the wind direction and then the Army plane was ready to take off with its first load. We got to see some more experienced jumpers and then some first-timers in their tandem jumps.

.

 

Breakfast at the Bombshelter is a real experience, stick to your ribs food and lots to watch as well. Thanks again to Carol and Marilyn or Marilyn and Carol, and their other halves, for all their hard work and pre-eating to make sure we all have a good time.

Plastic Fantastic 2017 – the 40th Anniversary for NCOCC

.

 

There is always good news and bad news – the good news was that the 2017 version of Plastic Fantastic was just that, fantastic, and the bad news is that the City of San Diego and Port of San Diego, in their infinite wisdom, are planning to build retail and condos on the wonderful Waterfront Park within the next couple of years and NCOCC will have to find an equally wonderful site in the future for all of their fans.

.

 

Well, the COTV group certainly enjoyed this 40th Anniversary event, both the veterans and the first-timers, and the Club won acclaim for being the second largest of the 400 Corvettes registered with 21 cars on the books. It seems we will never be able to catch up to Pacific Coast Corvettes who always field a group of 40-50 cars. The Webers made a long weekend of it, so some of the photos are pre-Plastic Fantastic itself and several are from the window of their 38th floor room overlooking the Park. They got to see the show being set up before 6am by the NCOCC members as well as many cars arriving as they waited to enter with the COTV early birds in the early vintage cars of the Club – Bill Steed, Joe Priebe and Steve Tidwell. These guys don’t like to push it as hard with the older cars, so left at 6am while the main group left at 6:45, led by Dave Hellman. The plan was to hold enough spaces for the whole group, but you know that saying…..the best laid plans, etc. COTV ended up in 3 different places, with Steed, Priebe, Tidwell and the Bleekers (on their first trip and pretending to be Jim Sommars to boot!), while the Webers and Dave Hellman were just across the path (but in the shade thank-you!) The main group was over the hill a little but actually had several shady spots and gazebos, so it worked out for them as well.

.

 

Veterans to the event included the afore-mentioned Steed, Priebe, Webers, Hellman, as well as the Venns, the Pages, and Skip Hipp (who didn’t come as a registrant, but just for the fun). Newer faces who certainly had lots of smiles included the Varas, the Alewines (they came last year and then joined the club), Andrew Echols, Dave Richards, Tom Bryant, Don Sforzini (who won an award in 2016), the Bleekers, the Piericks, and the McDermotts. The Caliandros, who joined us on a previous MLR and who promise to bring their application to the picnic, were there in her red C5 and the Patrons came in their mini-van so they could bring the kids. Leonard and Carol Buote came for their annual lunch on the pier and to check out the 400 beautiful cars.

.

 

Everyone wandered around to vote their participant’s choice ballots, to buy their raffle tickets and check the board to see if they won, to pick up their 40th anniversary gift of a nice red chair and check out the vendors. Bill Steed made his annual purchase of new baseball caps. We ran into people we knew from other clubs and made new friends. Some ate breakfast burritos and pulled pork sandwiches. A group of 20 went to the Harbor House for lunch on the patio.

.

 

At 2pm, they announced the awards and did it in reverse order from C7 back to C1. With the tremendous competition from all the beautiful cars, it wasn’t until almost the end that COTV had success – not a major surprise since both Bill Steed and Joe Priebe have won many times in the past. Joe came first in the C2 category and Bill came second in the C1 category, so they have more crystal trophies to add to their huge stash. After the announcements were through, it became a true free-for-all to get out of the park, so some of us waited until the rush was over. The Varas and the Caliandros couldn’t bear to leave the lovely San Diego day behind so the shot of the yellow Vara car from the Webers’ room window is a fitting last shot for these memories of Plastic Fantastic 2017. Let’s give the Pacific Coast Corvettes a run for their money next year and get an even bigger group together.

04/30/2017 Mystery Lunch Run Hosted By Jim and Diane Sommars

Mystery Lunch Run 4-30-17

.

.


We have all heard about those “leisurely Sunday drives” of old – families in station wagons taking in the scenery, romantic young couples on their way to a picnic at the beach or in a park, father and son heading to the fishing hole, etc. Well, “fuggedaboutit,” that’s not exactly what Jim and Diane had in mind for the April Mystery Lunch Run. They picked a much different Sunday drive for all the COTV faithful, to one of their favorite lunch locales.

.


It was a pretty warm and very sunny day in Spring, although the temps ended up pretty Summery, when 29 cars and 49 COTV folks met at the usual place for a Sommars Special. For many of us it was a surprise to see Dan and Kathy Hedges, longtime members who were very active in the earlier years but have been too busy to have COTV fun of late. They turned up in a regular car for their Last Hurrah and last COTV event. In the next couple of weeks, they will be retired and on their way to Wisconsin to join many of their family members. They have shipped the two Corvettes, sold the house and bought a new one near Madison, WI.

.


Other new or infrequent faces who turned up for the Run included Chuck Sherman’s other daughter, Tracey. He brought the brunette one month and now we were joined by the blonde. Curt Stevens brought along his brother-in-law, Joe, since both of their wives are in Italy. Curt will be joining Darlena in London next weekend so they can go on a cruise to Norway. Joe has joined us once before so he seemed familiar. John Olivas brought along a friend to ride shotgun as well. Tom and Ann Lontz, who came to their first MLR at the end of March and joined COTV pretty much right away, were with us for their second. Mike and Denise Re, who joined at the last meeting after being on the February MLR were also along for the ride. The Downings gave us a few test rides and meetings, but now they are regulars. We were glad to see Terry Isenberg, who must be feeling better. It was also a pleasure to see Doug Glenore again, now that the tax season is over and that he and Marilyn have moved into a new home. Unfortunately, they are off to the Med for a month, cruising around, so we won’t see them for a little while. Oh yes, we mustn’t forget to mention that our own mystery woman, Karen Hellman, also joined us for the Mystery Lunch Run. Maybe we have talked her into a day at Plastic Fantastic as well! What do you think, Karen? Lunch at Seaport Village?

.


Based on a suggestion in the Suggestion Box, we tried to make the ride a little easier for everyone, by splitting into Groups A and B. Groups were assigned at random as drivers checked in with Jim. Group A was led by Jim and Diane, with Joe and Rosemary Priebe as the rear car. Group B was led by John and Fritzi McDermott, with Rob and Daryl Weber as the last of the last cars. We allowed a five minute gap between group departures. The route led to the northbound 15, off and westbound on Clinton Keith, north on Grand Avenue through Wildomar and Lake Elsinore, and onto the dreaded Ortega Highway. Here is where the “leisurely Sunday drive” became the drive of a thousand motorcycles and cars all crammed into the narrow and curving road and generally going really slow. By the time we got through most of the canyon part of the Ortega, Group B could hear Group A on the walkie-talkies and knew that gap was closing. That was partly because of general traffic conditions and partly because of a nasty accident at about Hot Springs Canyon Road, with motorcycle parts (all that was visible of a proud biker’s ride) strewn around. We all squeezed by the accident site and by the time we got near the 5 Fwy, we were almost back to one group. Our timing was good in that we passed the CHP cars, the fire truck and the ambulance going to the accident after we were well away from it. We can only imagine the messier situation that faced those arriving after the emergency vehicles blocked the narrow road.

.


Our destination was San Juan Capistrano, one of Jim and Diane’s favorites, but not Sarducci’s where they have led us before as that restaurant is now called Trevor’s at the Tracks. Instead we went to El Adobe de Capistrano which is a California State Historical Landmark and is considered a circa-1797 site. We were served in the private patio and offered non-stop chips and salsa and lemonade and iced tea, with a choice of 5 or 6 lunch dishes, most with a Mexican flavor, like the cheese enchilada salad, the torta with either carnitas or carne asada, the huevos rancheros, or the American favorites, a burger or a California Chicken Sandwich.

.


A lot of COTV-ers moved on to other area activities after lunch, like Dana Point Harbor or shopping in San Juan. Many planned an alternative route home to avoid the Ortega. Those of us who headed back the way we came found smooth going as all the traffic was gone, there was absolutely no sign of the accident, and it really did take 37 minutes to do 31 miles or whatever the GPS said.

.


Thanks to Jim and Diane for another fun Sunday drive, although not quite as leisurely as we might have thought. A challenging drive and more food…. what could be better!!!???

.


NOTE: Please note that the May MLR, which would have fallen on Memorial Day Weekend, has been canceled and instead we will be having the COTV picnic the following Sunday, June 4, at the home of Terry and Simon Bleeker. So sign up for burgers and all the fixings at their wine country home. See you there! In June, we will be back to our regular schedule with a MLR hosted by Dave and Karen Hellman. See you there, too!

04/22/2017 Clear Pro Customer Appreciation Day

clear-pro-logo

Lance and his team, proud sponsors of

our Club, invited COTV to

LUNCH AT THE SHOP.

And we Had a Great Time!

.

 

Clear-Pro Customer Appreciation Day

.

 

April 22, 2017

.

 

This is a habit we could get used to – one of our sponsors having a Customer Appreciation Event and Open House for us! We always try to tell our sponsors how much we appreciate what they do for us by using their product or eating their food, but it is not often that they provide the food to tell us how much they appreciate our business as well. In the last two months, two of our sponsors have reversed the process by inviting us to their shops and providing the main course for a great lunch (DO WE LIKE TO EAT???) while we bring along some side dishes.

.

 

This was our second such event, put on by Lance and crew at Clear-Pro. There was even a demo of the application of the clear “bra” treatment on Jim Sommars’ car. No wonder he was enthused about this particular luncheon. He got to eat and have his car worked on at the same time.

.

 

We had 22 cars and 35 folks in attendance, with a late minute arrival by Rahul Bharadwal, who is a possible member prospect and arrived with a contribution to the table in hand. Although we had our usual group of singles in attendance, some wives (Fritzi and Carol) just joined us a little later. Curt Stevens brought his grandson, Ashton, instead of Darlena. We think that Ashton preferred the cookies to the crowd of oldies. Tom and Ruth Pierick, who joined at the last general meeting, came along for their first such event. Jerry and Sharon Hoover, who are friends of Bill and Sandi Steed, were there to see if we looked like a fun group to join. Norm Luckuck made one of his rare appearances. John Marsh came sans Mary Kino, who is working so hard she doesn’t have time for COTV fun right now. Mary, we hope to see you soon! Ted Venn made his second appearance in as many weeks. We have missed seeing you more often, Ted! We send along our best wishes to Terry Isenberg, who is still not up to par, although Chuck says she has to get better before they leave for Italy.

.

 

Before lunch, Lance demonstrated the computer program that helps him cut the material exactly to fit any car, new or old, and applied some to the front end of Jim’s car for the interested crowd. Then, Jim announced that we could eat. Lance had marinated and grilled tons of chicken and this was supplemented by eleven, count that eleven, various potato salads, pasta salads, Cindy Hart’s broccoli salad, Betsy’s mac and cheese, and a variety of cookies, brownies, cakes and sweet finishes. There was plenty of water, although we were not too hot since we were inside the shop most of the time and out of the 95+ degree heat.

.

 

We want to give Lance a huge thank-you for all his support over the years, his great work on a lot of our cars, his grilling skills and his generosity. Let’s all think about the Clear-Pro treatment for our cars, if we haven’t already. They deserve it!
