Sunday May 19, 2019

It was a much more “intimate” group from COTV than in past years and did not put us in the running for the prize for club participation which was won, of course, by Pacific Coast Corvettes and Simi Valley Corvettes.

Rob and Daryl and Dave were waiting by the side of the road on Kettner and led the rest of the group into the park. Due to the impending rain storm several members (Chuck Calagna and Gary Miranda) opted not to come down for the event. Bill Stedfield had car problems, although he said his car was clean and ready. Curt Stevens had become a regular at Urgent Care so was unable to make it either. That meant there were 7 cars and 12 members registered and among the first cars to get in the gate. That allowed us to get a primo parking area. Doug and Marilyn had their own spot near various vendors and the raffle booth so they could make their best effort to add cars to the list going on the NCM caravan. Mike Re attended his first Plastic Fantastic.

Unfortunately, just after everyone had cleaned their cars again, the sky opened up. We had a series of light showers and then some heavy rain. Because of the weather, overall attendance was probably 50% of registration. Then as the rain came back on and off, about 50% of those who came started to leave. As we all found out it did give us a better chance at winning raffle prizes. However, it was disappointing for North Coast Corvettes who put so much time and effort into organizing the event.

We all voted our ballots and went over to Harbor House for our annual lunch, but this time indoors. By the time we got back at 12:15 they were moving the raffle drawings up and planned on giving out the prizes just after 1pm. Rob and Daryl were the last of the COTV members so watched to see if they needed to collect trophies for anyone in the club, but alas it was not our lucky year.

As this is being written later in the afternoon, the sun is out. No matter what happened with the weather or the prizes, we had a good time together at Plastic Fantastic for another year.

A Nice Long Sunday Drive

When you want something done right, leave it to the pros. That’s what we did for this month’s run. Curt and Darlena had originally planned an even longer route, but that idea had to be revised when the Idyllwild to Banning Panoramic Highway was put out of commission by a huge landslide. Somehow they still found about 100 miles of curves and straightaways and, to top it all off, they ended up with lunch right in their own community so, for once, they did not have the longest ride home.

It was a lovely day for a long drive in the countryside, enough sun but not too much heat. We had 25 cars and about 45 folks at the meeting place. It was basically the usual suspects with the addition of a new couple, Jack and Donna Price, in their silver convertible with the red interior. Norm Craig and Ronette Garduno came with both their cars and their usual friends. Lana Jenkin brought her daughter, Kimberley, and Dave Hellman brought his daughter, Dana. George and Carole Nix, who we don’t see often enough, were also with us and so were Ray and Judy McIntosh, recently back from their trip to Portugal and Spain.

Our revised route went east on 79 and then onto Sage and Cactus Valley through the farms and nurseries. We took Domenigoni Parkway past the Water Museum and north on Winchester, with a rest stop at Winchester Farms. From there we wove west through Perris and over to the 15 North to exit at Lake where the Superbloom caused so much chaos. The route then went up Temescal Canyon on both sides of the freeway until we turned on Cajalco, to go all the way back east to the 215 North.

Our destination was Woody’s Brewhouse in Moreno Valley where we shared the restaurant with several other large parties. We could pick from the menu of salads and sandwiches and hamburgers or the buffet, so everyone could find exactly what they wanted. After much food and conversation, everyone thanked Curt and Darlena for a great Sunday on the road and headed in whatever direction they had to go.

Sunday morning was beautiful as we met for the MLR hosted by the Grigsby’s and Gruber’s.  The Captain brought Eric, Missy, Ed and Annette along as guests.  Also DJ and Clare were guests driving a 15 C7 Red coupe manual.  They all were looking forward to the mystery run. 
.
After a few people had to cancel we ended up with 52 people and 27 cars.  We left Kohl’s a little different than we usually do and were out of town and up into the mountains in no time. 
.
We went up mountains, down mountains, thru green fields past farms, under trees that had formed a canopy.  We weren’t the only people out enjoying the beautiful day as we passed a bicycle club and a group of motorcycles on the ride.  We passed a familiar breakfast spot with COTV the Rainbow Oaks Restaurant and we ended up at the Casa Estrella in Fallbrook. 
.
They had a buffet set up for us in our own private room.  The staff was very attentive to our group and everyone enjoyed the lunch.  After a good meal and good conversation everyone said goodbye and thanked our hosts for the great MLR.
