Vettes For Veterans

November 9, 2019

You couldn’t have asked for a better day to celebrate our veterans!

A large group of COTV members met at our usual place and set out for the Shoppes at Carlsbad for the North Coast Vettes’ Eighth Annual Vettes for Veterans event. The Club has raised more than $198,000 over the past seven years to benefit the Semper Fi Fund and the Paralyzed Veterans of America. The show is judged by members of those two organizations. All participants who are veterans receive a laminated display card for their dashboards and the whole day revolves around service members, past and present.

COTV was represented by Leonard and Carol Buote, Charity Burrell, Chuck Calagna, Wes Carroll and Carole Schartoff, Glenn Crowther, Doug and Marilyn Glenore, Dave Hellman, Skip Hipp, Jeff and Denise Kilpatrick, John and Fritzi McDermott, Willie Nagle, Joe and Rosemary Priebe, Mike Re, Chuck Sherman, Jim Sommars, Bill Steed, Curt Stevens, John and Lynne Vara, and Rob and Daryl Weber. Dave Hellman met us there since he now lives in Carlsbad. John McDermott trailered his beautiful black ’69. We were also joined at the event by Bruce Ferrell and Jayne Bendel who live in Fallbrook and joined the Club on the spot. Welcome! Unfortunately, Don and Bev Weeks had to cancel and missed the fun. Leonard Buote and Joe Priebe even drove their ’66 and ’63, but kept up with the caravan.

Once we get set up in our places, it is time to head to Panera Bread and get coffee since most of us had not had time for much before the 7:30am departure. Of course, Joe Priebe always finds time to get his morning (or afternoon) coffee fix. By now, we know a lot of folks at this event since they are all from local clubs and we have attended their shows (like Plastic Fantastic) and even travelled with some of them. So there is time to chat and to wander around to view all the cars. An early lunch break sent most of us to either Islands or Panera for sustenance and also to get out of the warm sun (85 degrees) for a while.

Vettes for Veterans is also known for their elaborate raffle baskets and interesting Silent Auction items. Lucky winners of baskets included: Curt Stevens (2), Dave Hellman, and Bill Steed. Winners in the silent auction included: Glenn Crowther, Jeff Kilpatrick and Rob Weber.

After all the raffles were done, they got down to awards for the winning cars, selected by the veterans. All winners receive a framed certificate and CASH. Many winners return the cash to the North Coast Vettes to enrich the total cash donation. We had winners in C3 (John McDermott), C4 (Curt Stevens), and C7 (Mike Re – who said he didn’t even want his car judged!) COTV also won the award for the largest group of cars, at 20, beating North County, last year’s winner.

Hooray for us! We had a day of fun and a winning one at that. We look forward to 2020’s Vettes for Veterans.

Mystery Lunch Run

October 27, 2019

Ann and Tom Lontz have taken ownership of the October MLR over the past few years and have even already signed up for 2020. We thank them for their string of past fun and food filled Sunday drives. This Sunday was another one to add to the list.

We had 31 cars RSVP, 4 who did not make it, but 3 new ones who came at the last moment, so it worked out pretty evenly. Among the participants were some new faces. Lana brought her friend Linda. They have been friends since their school days. Norm and Ronette brought a familiar face, Eric, and his co-driver. Don Sforzini brought Bonnie McDonald for a repeat MLR. Some of our newer members were in the group: Charity and Paul Birrell, Paul Saavedra and his daughter and Anthony and Carla Thomas. We also had new faces Scott Brunoehler and Amy Berling, more Canyon Lake folks.

Since Tom had experienced a recent medical issue, he and Ann did the check-in and then met us at the destination. They had made very seasonal instruction “packages”, in the shape of a pumpkin with the instructions as the stalk, so we all got a real souvenir of the fun day. Of course, Bruce Mofford wore his Batman outfit to remind us that Halloween is almost upon us.

John and Lynn served as leaders with the Webers bringing up the rear, not a new role for both couples. Since it was a relatively short run and the roads made for mid-range speed driving, no one got lost. We formed up at our usual spot along 79, then turned on Anza and did a kind of reverse trip from our usual, through the outskirts of Temecula, then along Sage and Wilson Valley Roads, to CA 371 (but not to Anza, etc.) instead heading along 79 again and finishing at the Warner Springs Golf Bar and Grill. On the way along 79 we saw a group of very old cars, driven by folks in original racing gear from the period of their cars. Both groups waved at each other. Some of them were at Warner Springs when we got there, as were a large motorcycle group. We just took over their parking places.

We have used this location as a rest stop on numerous occasions, but not as a lunch stop. We had tables out on the deck and realized that it was actually October, as it was cooler unless you were in the sun.

Since we had all pre-ordered our lunch from a list of 6 choices, the waitresses brought our orders out in groups: all the burgers first, then the club sandwiches, etc. As always, someone will be last, but it was generally pretty efficient.

Mystery Lunch Run

September 29, 2019

Ray and Judy’s September lunch run should have satisfied anyone who complained about too much freeway mileage or not enough scenic roads in any of this year’s past MLRs. It was both scenic and off the beaten track.

It was a cool morning to start with although the sun did grace the group as the day wore on. Our less- than-sure count of cars was about 35, not including a guest from Idaho who joined us at Kohl’s but was not able to do the run. Our estimated head count was 65-ish. Norm and Ronette brought along some guests as usual and Leo Biller brought Rosemary. She must like us since we have seen her for both breakfast and lunch in the last couple of weeks. We certainly like her. Lana brought along one of her friends as well. We are glad she is able to join us for these events. As always, we had some singles as well as the usual couples.

Ray and Judy led the way and Rob and Daryl brought up the rear, trying to make sure no one got left behind (although not always succesful in that task). Thank heavens for cell phones because the radios don’t work perfectly with a line of 35 cars, especially when the route has lots of turns and stop signs. The group wound their way through Temecula’s wine and horse country, along Sage Rd and Cactus Valley and into Hemet via Domenigoni and then Warren. Our potty stop was at Gosch Chevrolet, where the manager provided coffee and bathroom facilities. Then we continued on through the dairy farms and up onto Gilman Springs Road. Our instructions at the drivers’ meeting were that we would only be on a freeway for a VERY brief time and that was true – we were supposed to be on the 60 westbound for exactly one exit. Unfortunately, not everyone heard the VERY part of very brief and kept going, but we managed to use those darn cell phones and haul them back into line.

We headed up Redlands Blvd and San Timoteo Canyon Road and onto Oak Glen Road, then into Yucaipa, where we finally made our last u-turn into the parking lot for American Road Trip, a fun and casual restaurant with a menu providing choices for everyone’s appetite. Who knows how Ray and Judy found this place? We don’t! It was a great, and for some challenging, lunch run. We thank the McIntoshes for all their organization!

Hosted by Lynne & John Vara

Vara sm

We met at 9:30 and it was already 85 degrees, everyone was seeking the limited shade but looking forward to another MLR.  Lynne and John collected $14 a person and handed out directions with meal choice tickets.  There were 23 cars and 41 people.  We departed at 10:00 and headed down Rt 79 to our normal regroup location.  We lined up Lemans Style, thanks Leo for the terminology, it was a flawless execution once John McDermott, the last car, blocked the 79.  
.
We continued down Rt 79 for 35 miles and went to Warner Springs Golf Course for our bathroom break.  Everyone liked the pace and was enjoying the scenery.  Again John stopped traffic with his Black C6 as we all exited the parking lot and continued down 79.  After 3.5 miles we turned left on San Felipe rd and regrouped.  The group was intact in less then a few minutes.  This road was wide and very interesting in how far you could see in spots but the road had many blind dips.  After 16 miles we turned on Rt 78 West. 
I know many people in the group wanted to step down hard but we refrained as we climbed into the mountains.  The wide open road became windy and narrow with quick turns, and slow speeds to keep it on the road.  We then turned on Wynola rd and the turns were even tighter then the last road.  The vegetation was thick and many trees.  At the end of this road we intersected Rt 78. 
.
Our destination was Wynola Pizza and Bistro, in Julian.  We sat down, put our meal tickets out and within minutes we were served various sandwiches and salads with unlimited soft drinks.  As usual we had great conversations, enjoyable food with excellent service.  Everyone enjoyed the run. 
.
Forgot to mention the restaurant was out of apple pie and since we are in the Capital of Apple Pie, how can we leave without a slice?  So Robert and Maria Erhardt, Joe and Barbie Orsini, John and Lynne Vara headed to Julian with the Erhardt’s leading, the parking was minimal, and we ended up in various spots with the Erhardt’s in front of the Julian Pie Company.  They grabbed a table while we parked and walked over.  The line was long, but we had some delicious pie, some plain and some a la mode, everyone enjoyed it.  See the last picture of the Vara’s car in Julian.
