2016 Monterey Coast Corvette Cruise
June 3, 4, and 5
Hosted by Monterey Peninsula Corvette Club
It’s time to register for the 2016 Monterey Coast Corvette Cruise Event. Prepare yourselves for a fun packed weekend on California’s beautiful Monterey peninsula.
Download the registration form you received in the email announcing the trip,
“To Infinity (Monterey Actually) and Beyond”,
and mail it in.
The bunch that attended the last Monterey trip, sometimes called “Wild Bunch” (because they frequently stay up until 10pm – I kid you not ! ) and sometimes called that Bunch of Banana Brains (for obvious reasons) is planning on using the Monterey event as the corner stone for a COTV trip before and after the Monterey event. Think taking a couple of days to get to Monterey and then after Monterey heading for the Gold Country, Yosemite and beyond (7-10 days total).
Want to know where the
BEFORE & AFTER
But First You Have to Register for the
2016 Monterey Coast Corvette Cruise (so read on…..) For those who have participated in prior years, we hope you decide to join COTV in 2016. For those of you presently “scoping out upcoming events”, this event will be all you could hope for. Whichever category you fall into, old or new, spread the word, register, then set back and relax. This is by far one of the best events in the state.
Some of the events over-lap so you participate in those you like, skip the others, or you can send your significant other one way and you go the other. Whatever works for you! There are two goals. One is to make sure event participants have a wonderful weekend. The second goal is to raise money for The Food Bank of Monterey County, a well deserving organization in the county providing food for individuals and families in need. To date, over $20K has been raised to support these efforts, which equates to over $140K when combined with other generous partnerships that have been built. That makes this weekend a WIN-WIN for everyone!

book your room as soon as you receive the event group code. Rooms go fast! Reserved rooms include a mixture of single, double, triple, and quad availability with double or king beds. MPCC continually monitors the room block to insure other groups do not infringe on rooms set aside for the event participants. Embassy Suites has graciously agreed to extend the room rates for two days before the event and two days after the event for those of you planning an extended stay.
