COTV is sort of like the postal service but with better vehicles…neither rain nor fog nor bad traffic will deter us from our appointed duties, eating together as often as possible. Amazingly, only 10 of the folks who had signed up let the bad weather deter them and their places were taken by some late minute additions. All told there were 37 hungry, then happy, faces around the breakfast table.
The original plan was to eat on the covered patio, but Storm Watch 2019 made for a change to the warmth and comfort of the indoor dining room. Doug and Marilyn Glenore were the first on-site, actually beating Bruce Mofford on this occasion. Mike Re came without Denise who was either baby- or dog-sitting, but took home breakfast for her. Marsue Page came without Steve, who was on the road to Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson auction. A newish member, Joe Orsini, came without his wife who is not an early riser and seemed to enjoy the company. The rest were the usual suspects.
Doug and Marilyn brought a couple of the club-specific stadium blankets they purchased for those going on the 25th Anniversary caravan to the National Corvette Museum and used one for a “show and sell.” According to the Southwest Section e-News letter, COTV is the first club to place an order. As you can see by Wes’ photo, the blanket is an attractive, large and warm souvenir. If you think one would look good in your family room or car, just let Marilyn know and she will make sure you get it. She is also finalizing plans for our visit to Nashville and on to New Orleans, so keep an eye on your emails.
Well, thanks as usual go to Marilyn and Carol or Carol and Marilyn for planning another filling and satisfying get-together. Our stomaches are already looking forward to the next one.
