Holiday Party 2019!

Once a year, whether we need to or not, the COTV gang dons their festive apparel and spends a wonderful evening talking, hugging everyone in sight, eating more than they should and even doing a little dancing.

It is difficult to recognize the same folks who are usually in jeans and baseball caps (you know who you are!) for one night wearing sequins, suits and bling. In our usual lifestyle we rarely get the opportunity to show that we can even really be stylish. John Randall and Wes Carroll looked great in tuxedos. Donna DeMarco was styling in a beautiful blue. Denise Re and Jerri Lynn Randall favored red. Mike Grayson and Randy Smith wore their favorite holiday sweaters. The rest of the pack weren’t too shabby either – there are just too many to mention!

We seemed to feel right at home for a multiple repeat night at Journey at Pechanga and the buffet dinner certainly has something for everyone. Our entertainment for a second year was Ron Johnson, a great musician/singer, who knows how to press all the right buttons for our group if the number of people on the dance floor is anything to go by. Hopefully he is another habit we can have for the holidays! We even had quite a few folks hang around until 9pm for the drawing for the holiday gift baskets – won by Hans and Alma Boers, Al and Vickie Hackworth, and Paul Saavedra and Margo Kasting. Congratulations!

Mike Re did a great job of putting the event together and is passing the baton for next year to another great organizer, Jim Sommars. What a wonderful way to end a great 2019! See you in 2020!

COTV Toys For Tots

December 1, 2019

COTV started off the holiday season with its annual Toys For Tots event with the Marines. This year we were pleased to have 3 sergeants in full dress uniform, Josh, Vern and Blake, join us with both a van and a pick-up truck. They were even on site and ready early so that we could be all set up before the first Corvettes arrived with their toys.

Around 70 COTV members came and went during the two hour delivery window and about 45-50 continued on to lunch afterwards. We filled about a dozen boxes with toys, which were jam packed into the van. A couple of bicycles went into the truck as the Marines proceeded to another pick-up appointment in Rainbow after they left us.

It was great to see the Bleekers in their Santa and Mrs. Claus outfits as they attracted small children who were passing through the parking lot with their parents, as well as the somewhat larger children in our own group. Some of our members had other commitments so did a drive-by and drop-off maneuver. Thanks to Chuck Calagna for coming before he headed to the hospital where his daughter was having surgery. Thanks also to Micha Grayson who came to chat with her COTV friends for a short while. It was also good to see Bob and Monica Clark, who are hoping to be more involved in club activities now that Bob has retired….again.

The lunch bunch headed to BJ’s in Menifee, for the second Sunday in a row, but we changed it up this time as we could order whatever we wanted instead of having the great pizza buffet Skip arranged for the MLR. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and company, even two weeks running. We look forward to another change as we go to Journey at Pechanga for the Holiday Party next Sunday, December 8. See you there.

Thanks to everyone who participated and showed how generous our Club can be. Next year, Marti Schoeman and the Randalls will be in charge and will ensure that this holiday habit continues. Please help them continue with another successful event in 2020.

Mystery Lunch Run

November 24, 2019

It was the closing chapter in 2019’s book of MLRs, authored by Skip Hipp. Somehow, our November run is always larger than we expect with its close proximity to Thanksgiving, although this year because Turkey Day is later in the year, it fell on the Sunday before instead of the Sunday after.

Anyhow, we had a sizeable crowd of 26 Corvettes plus the Buotes’ Hunni Bun car and 49 COTV members. Some of our singles teamed up (Bill Stedfield and Bob Smith, Skip and John Meyer, the Buotes and Willie Nagle.) Norm and Ronette brought along two familiar faces, Eric and Missy Johnson, who after giving us a trial run for about a year (according to Eric) finally bit the bullet and decided to join. Dave Hellman was accompanied by his other “plus one”, his daughter Dana.

Today’s route took us along some familiar but favorite curvy roads through the back of Temecula, then onto Domenigoni Parkway for a brief moment before entering the “Valley of the Mastodons/Diamond Valley Lake”. We passed the Visitor Center and Museum and headed up and then down to the launch ramp parking area for a “rest stop.” After we had rested for a while, we headed back on Domenigoni, through parts of Menifee and over the 215 freeway before turning into the shopping center and heading to BJ’s Brewhouse.

The restaurant had arranged large tables for us in the separate dining room area and provided a never-ending buffet of salad and 4-6 types of deep dish pizza, plus drinks with plenty of refills. As soon as folks filled their plates, new pizzas appeared. At the end of the meal, they provided carry-out boxes for COTV members to take home the remaining pizza. It was a win-win situation, both lunch and dinner in one.

Thanks Skip, for a lovely day of sun, great roads, food and comraderie to round out 2019’s MLR calendar. We still have Toys for Tots and the Holiday Party to come in December, so we look forward to seeing everyone again before the year comes to a close.

Breakfast Social

November 20, 2019

It was a small but happy group of about 15-20 who met at the Yellow Basket in Temecula for the last Breakfast Social of 2019. Since we are experiencing the first rain in a while, there were no Corvettes in the parking lot. Most of us had used the windshield wipers at some point in the trip to the restaurant.

Of course, the Buotes and Watsons were there since they organized the event. But as always, Skip was the first in the parking lot until Rob and Daryl joined him. Then the rest trickled in (John and Annette, Chuck Calagna, Chuck Sherman, Jim Sommars, John and Jerri-Lynne, Bill Stedfield and John and Fritzi.) Don Weeks stopped by on his way to bowling but did not stay to eat.

Yellow Basket is a casual place with a well-priced menu and the senior breakfasts are not skimpy, as Skip and Daryl found out. You place your order and they bring it to your table. What more could you ask?

Because we had all arrived in dribs and drabs, we departed in the same fashion, rather than all at once. We are looking forward to getting together again for another meal on Sunday with Skip’s MLR. See you there!
