Central Reservations in Steamboat has had a couple of hiccups in the first couple of days. Management is on it and service should improve quickly. The information under the resort tab above is correct. If you’re told anything else, ask for a supervisor immediately. A hotel room with a rate of $129/night works out to $153.77 with resort fees and taxes added. If you don’t want travel insurance, make sure it is not added.

Reservations can be made by calling the resort central reservations desk in Steamboat Springs. Room rates are already set, and are deeply discounted, starting at $129 a night plus tax for a studio, a single queen or king, or a double queen. A one bedroom condo, which includes a large living area and separate bedroom, is $159 a night. 2, 3, 4, & 5 bedroom suites are available. The VOTR room rates will be available 2 days prior to and after the event- 21 to 28 August. Eligibility for the discounted rates is based on being registered for the event.

Space is limited for VOTR 2018, and we expect a waiting list.

Registrations and Resort reservations will be first come,
first served.

get used to
 LESS OXYGEN.  Check out the COTV Calendar for a
proposed route to Steamboat Springs.  There’s a reason those ladies are sitting down.

12/10/17 COTV Holiday Party

WE DIDN’T GET TO SEE THE PREZ SHOW OFF HIS MOVES!

BUT WE STILL HAD A GREAT TIME!


Jingle Bell Rock
December 10, 2017

.

 

It was the last, but certainly not least, social event of the COTV year. It was the last time to EAT together. It was the last time to catch up, even though many of the members had seen each other each of the last 3 Sundays, so there wasn’t too much to catch up on…..except of course the Lilac Fire and evacuation orders obeyed and not obeyed. It was the last time to see everyone all dressed up for the holidays. Every year, it is amazing to see how different everyone looks in their Sunday best.

.

 

The official head count was 94 according to outgoing Events guy, Jim Sommars, and incoming President, John McDermott. Unfortunately, illness had felled the current President, Glenn Crowther, but John and Jim ably held down the fort.

.

 

Journey at Pechanga looked its usual festive self, with decorations and a warm fire in the fireplace, once you managed the obstacle course to get to the parking lot through the various Pechanga construction projects. As with all COTV events, there was a crowd in place before the 6pm starting time. People arrived early to stake out the best table for easy access to the buffet line and for what they thought would be the best view of the evening’s entertainment. More about that failed idea later! Jason and Joe Marshall wore their best red holiday shoes. Curt Stevens and Hans Boers sported festive ties. Some of the guys were unrecognizable in their seldom worn formal wear.

.

 

Cynthia Lee sang ballads in the bar area to get us all in the mellow mood. The bartenders kept the drinks coming while people arrived and chatted as they moved from table to table. With such a large group, it was a mix of old-timers and first-timers. When the dinner bell rang (when announced that the buffet line was open), it didn’t matter how long you had been a member, just how fast you could get to the head of the line. The buffet had several salads, potato leek soup, and a variety of entrees including chicken, salmon, lamb chops and steak, along with whipped potatoes and vegetables and a variety of breads. Some folks dropped off their plates and then checked out the dessert selections before they started in on their first courses.

.

 

After the food was downed and the coffee poured, Chef Anton, the headlining magician, changed all those best laid plans and moved his act from the central area everyone had focused on, back to the bar area where he could ask everyone to gather round in order to see his act close-up. Magicians are always better seen from a few feet away, so you can try to figure out how they can even do anything.

.

 

All in all, it was another successful ending to another successful year for COTV. John McDermott, in his short remarks, promised more of the same in 2018 and we will hold him to it! Best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday season with friends and family. See you in 2018.

Toys For Tots 2017

.

 

Every year since we changed our holiday charitable gifting focus from Spark of Love and the fire stations to Toys for Tots and the Marines, we have increased our generosity by leaps and bounds and this year broke all records. Our members come out in ever larger numbers and the piles of donations are testament to their support of the Marines and their desire to help youngsters in need.

.

 

This year almost 100 COTV members signed up in advance for donuts and to meet SSgts Ryan Ratigan and Jordan Hawkins and Corporal Melvin Pena who drove the truck so didn’t have to wear his dress blues. Simon and Terry Bleeker were the embodiment of the holiday spirit as they dressed as Mr. and Mrs. Claus, also forming a sleigh and horses with their white car as the sleigh and several red cars of various vintages as the reindeer. They posed for photos with the Marines, their COTV friends and even little children who thought Simon was the real thing (and we all know he is the real thing, don’t we?).  The weather, which had started out cold and foggy became nice and sunny by the time people started to arrive in larger numbers. Those of us who were there early were still wearing our jackets as we cleaned up the parking lot and set up the donut table. By 8:30 the convertible tops were down and holiday t-shirts were the order of the day.

.

 

At 10:30, everyone helped to load the truck with the bags of goodies and Mike and Doreen Alewine’s generous annual gift of multiple bicycles. We cleaned up the donut detritus and packed up anything that needed to be packed before Rob  led the main group up to the luncheon destination in Murrieta. Curt Stevens brought up the rear, although word has it that Rob tried to lose everyone with some misdirection about potty stops and uphill climbs.

.

 

RJ’s Sizzlin’ Steer was prepared for a huge group of about 90 for lunch (the largest group for which they had served such an extensive menu), on top of their usual Sunday brunch and Sunday football crowds. They had set up tables in the outdoor patio area and RJ himself helped Marilyn, Carol and Daryl to decorate even more than the restaurant’s already nice holiday décor.  Daryl added some little table plants and candy canes for folks to take home at the end of lunch. The menu was large and very varied so there were choices to fit all tastes and dietary needs. The service was great and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We thank the servers for their good natured efficiency and smiling faces.

.

 

At this rate, we are going to outgrow any possible lunch destinations for 2018. As always, we want to end this article with thanks to the Marines for coming to make this a special occasion, to RJ and the restaurant for making it fun and tasty, and to COTV folks for their generosity once again. We look forward to our last meal together for 2017 at the holiday party at Pechanga next Sunday. Our best wishes to everyone for happy holidays with family and friends and more fun together in 2018.

Relax After Thanksgiving Mystery Lunch Run
 
November 26, 2017
 
 
 

.

 

Every year we somehow delude ourselves into thinking that the MLR three days after Thanksgiving will be low-key, quiet and sparsely attended. At least that is what relatively new members, Tom and Ann Lontz and Terry and Jan Munn, thought when they volunteered to lead their first try at our signature event. Well…..SURPRISE!!
 

.

 

 
When Ann and Tom turned up at Kohl’s at the 9am meeting time, there were already a good percentage of the 58 people and 31 cars who had sent in their RSVPs and their advance payment, hanging out together in the rapidly warming sunshine.  Among them were potential member Steve Ryan in his beautiful silver, 65, Fuelie, convertible, Norman Craig and Ronette Garduno with both their Corvettes, Bruce Mofford (always #1 to arrive now), and Steve and Marsue Page without the Corvette at all.  As the time for departure crept closer, the crowd grew by leaps and bounds.
 

.

 

 
Norm Craig brought his mother, Diane, and Ronette brought her daughter, Kendra.  Wendy Converse drove their new addition with her aunt, Carol, from Boston.  Mickey Diehl brought another friend from her never-ending supply, Terry.  Lana Jenkin brought her friend, Cathy, as Keith is up north with their daughter.  In addition to the new face of Steve Wright, we had Al and Nicole Villa, who had done a Good Samaritan favor for Bruce Mofford and he in turn had done us all the favor of inviting them to come along and hopefully join the club.
 

.

 

 
As we all got ready to depart, you could see the two-Corvette families (Converse and Craig) as well as the “that’s not a Corvette folks”, the Pages and Crooks.  There was the usual free-for-all leaving the parking lot as Tom and Ann Led us through the streets of Temecula, down by Charter Oaks High to re-group and then out Pechanga Hwy to the Pala-Temecula Hwy to Pala and east all the way to the winding road up to the Palomar Observatory.  Simon and Terry Bleeker served as the rear guard and kept us all together.  Some of the group had been on this route many years back at the same time of year and had encountered snow and black ice.  That day, Al Hackworth became a “60-second celebrity” as he was interviewed for the news on a San Diego station.  This year the weather was almost summery, with temps in the 80s and no snow or ice in sight.  We wound our way up S6 to the Observatory for a potty break and then reversed course so that everyone could enjoy the curves twice.

.

 

 
 
The final lunch destination was the buffet at Casino Pauma, new to some of us who thought we had explored most of the Indian casinos in the area. J an and Terry Munn were waiting for us there with all fees paid and tables designated for our group.  The hostess seated us and we proceeded to make up for our missed breakfasts at home by demolishing the offerings available.  As always, we departed in groups or singles, full and happy.
 

.

 

 
It is a daunting task to plan any MLR, but especially your first.  We commend the Lontzes and the Munns for doing such a tremendous job and suggest that they volunteer to organize the Thanksgiving MLR every year.  John Vara, are you listening???
 

.

 

 
We still have a couple more holiday events to go – Toys for Tots and the Holiday Party.  We hope to see you all at both. What better way to celebrate the end of another COTV year?!?!.

11/15/17 Sponsor Appreciation Dinner @ Applebee’s

Image result for applebee's murrieta

Image result for applebee's murrieta

A group of 30 COTV members converged on the Murrieta Applebee’s to show our appreciation for their sponsorship. Although the group was somewhat small, the appetites were not. “Batman” Bruce Mofford (who signed Applebees on as a sponsor) did a fine job of working with Melissa, the manager who insured that we were served promptly with good hot food and drinks to order. The servers were plentiful, prompt and courteous. As always, when our club gets together, a great time was had by all. Look for Melissa (pictured below with the “Batman” to also be at the Temecula Applebees when she takes over management there as well. Thanks to Bruce for obtaining this fine sponsor and for setting up the dinner.
