Breakfast Social

January 16, 2019

Penfold’s Cafe & Bakery

COTV is sort of like the postal service but with better vehicles…neither rain nor fog nor bad traffic will deter us from our appointed duties, eating together as often as possible.  Amazingly, only 10 of the folks who had signed up let the bad weather deter them and their places were taken by some late minute additions.  All told there were 37 hungry, then happy, faces around the breakfast table.

The original plan was to eat on the covered patio, but Storm Watch 2019 made for a change to the warmth and comfort of the indoor dining room.  Doug and Marilyn Glenore were the first on-site, actually beating Bruce Mofford on this occasion.  Mike Re came without Denise who was either baby- or dog-sitting, but took home breakfast for her.  Marsue Page came without Steve, who was on the road to Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson auction.  A newish member, Joe Orsini, came without his wife who is not an early riser and seemed to enjoy the company.  The rest were the usual suspects.

Doug and Marilyn brought a couple of the club-specific stadium blankets they purchased for those going on the 25th Anniversary caravan to the National Corvette Museum and used one for a “show and sell.”  According to the Southwest Section e-News letter, COTV is the first club to place an order.  As you can see by Wes’ photo, the blanket is an attractive, large and warm souvenir.  If you think one would look good in your family room or car, just let Marilyn know and she will make sure you get it.  She is also finalizing plans for our visit to Nashville and on to New Orleans, so keep an eye on your emails.

Well, thanks as usual go to Marilyn and Carol or Carol and Marilyn for planning another filling and satisfying get-together. Our stomaches are already looking forward to the next one.

COTV Holiday Party

December 9, 2018

We certainly waved goodbye to the COTV year in great fashion at our annual holiday party. Fashion was the word of the evening as everyone was dressed in their holiday best (not the shorts, jeans and t-shirts we usually see at meetings and MLRs!) The Journey at Pechanga is a wonderful setting for us to show off how nice we can look and how well we can clean up. There were bow-ties, tuxedoes, fancy shoes, red dresses, sparkly tops and bottoms, holiday sweaters – you can see them all in the pictures taken by Curt, Harry and Rob. Try to recognize some of your old friends – like Joe Priebe and Bill Steed, who really look different without baseball caps.

Some of our newer members joined the festivities for the first year – Tom and Elle Ramsey, Mike and Brandi Moran, John and Barbara Rider, Roger and Lisa Johns, and Mike Marty with Diane DeFigh (he is not so new, but she is.) Chuck Sherman is beginning to make a nice habit of sharing COTV stuff with Jim and Diane’s friend, Jeanette.

Curt and Darlena carried on with the COTV tradition of planning a great party. We have found that Journey provides the perfect space for our large crowd and a pretty darn good meal as well. Dave Hellman bid everyone a farewell after several years on the Leadership Team. He says he will still be a member, even though he and Karen have moved to Carlsbad. He brought his daughter, Lindsay, to the party as poor Karen was en route back from a week on Maui. John and Jerri-Lynne Randall made a surprise announcement and presentation of the Moose to John and Lynne Vara, who we are sure will carry on the COTV Moose tradition in great style.

The entertainment was stellar and Ron Johnson did a great job of getting more people onto the dance floor than we have seen in many, many years. For those who stayed until the clock struck NINE (let’s face it, we are not as young as we used to be!), there were three lovely raffle baskets. They were won by Mike and Debbie Homan, Mike and Denise Re, and Randy and Angela Smith.

We wish all of our friends old and new the happiest of holiday seasons with their other friends and families. We know that we have lots of fun to look forward to with COTV in 2019 and so say – Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and see you in January.

COTV Toys for Tots Toy Run

It was the type of day that warms your heart and makes this such a wonderful time of year. About 90 or maybe more COTV members congregated at the Kohls’ parking lot to show just how wonderful they are as well, by providing toys and gifts for children in need through the Marine Toys For Tots program. Since the club shifted their focus from Spark of Love to Toys For Tots, our members’ generosity has grown by leaps and bounds and we can be sure that we are making a difference for so many families.

By the time Rob got there, after his annual tussle with the donut shop, bringing six dozen of them for everyone to share, there were already several cars in the lot. John Meyer joined us on his first Corvette outing since his quadruple bypass surgery. Casey Cannon, who joined some time ago, but is hardly ever in town to attend club events, was there and we were all happy to see him. Bruce Mofford was the early bird, as always.

Once we had set up the donut table and taped off an area for the toy collections, people started to arrive in Corvettes or regular cars loaded with toys. First one Marine, Carol, arrived and then the box truck with two more, Jerry and Alex, pulled into the lot. While folks chatted with the Marines and each other, the pile of toys kept growing. Norm Craig even arrived in his ’66 with a lovely tiny bicycle with training wheels, to make up for the one he didn’t have as a kid. Then Marti arrived, accompanied by her daughter, with a truckload of bicycles and scooters. The piles kept on growing until 11am, when everyone loaded 17 boxes and numerous bikes into the truck.

 

After the truck was loaded, the Corvette caravan headed all of 5.6 miles to Romano’s Macaroni Grill in the Promenade area for a lunch to celebrate a good job well done. The Marines followed in their box truck to eat with us as they had another pick up after lunch. We want to thank the Macaroni Grill and their manager, Elisabetta Baratti, for working to make this lunch happen for us on relatively short notice and at such a reasonable price. The service was great as well! They had set aside half of the restaurant for our use and although we didn’t completely fill it, we certainly enjoyed our pasta luncheon in the nice surroundings.

In addition to our regular members, we had some new faces in attendance. Stan and Connie Markwell had seen the Toy Run on the website and asked if they could attend as non-members. Stan has just completed restoration work on his red C3 and they are considering joining the club, so they were warmly welcomed. Another couple, the Sannes, saw us on Margarita Road on the way over to lunch and followed us right into the restaurant. They were in their truck but have a Corvette, so we invited them to join us for lunch. Thanks to Harry and Sharon Finch for acting as hosts to both new couples at their lunch table.

Again, thanks to all our members for reaching into their hearts and wallets to make this event such a success and to provide for children who might otherwise not have much of a Christmas. Next up and last for the year, is the Holiday Party. Hope to see you all there for more food, fun and maybe even some dancing!

Mofford sm

Great (MLR-XL) Turkey Run of 2K18

Every year we are amazed at the turnout for the November Mystery Lunch Run. We always think it will be small, because everyone is either gone or entertaining family for the Thanksgiving holiday. We are always wrong it seems, as we had around 35 cars on Bruce “The Bat” Mofford’s super intricate but pretty local Great Turkey Run. Tom Ramsey helped with the early car count of 28, but they just kept on coming.

We had guests galore in addition to our usual crowd. Valerie Treese from North Coast Vettes came to see what an MLR is like since she is their activities/events person and is thinking about starting them for their club in 2019. She brought along her husband John, Norm and Linda Pick, and Bob Ekstrom. Hopefully they weren’t scared off! Valerie says that she has a lot of ideas based on the archives of past COTV runs. We knew we kept all that info for someone. Victor and his son, Justin, turned up in a sparkling red Z06, talking about joining and already signing up for the Toys For Tots run. They found us on the website, as did James and Ann-Marie. (Thanks to Rob and Ray for making the website such a good source of information and attracting new folks to COTV!) The Sommars’ friend, Jeanette, joined us and served as Chuck Sherman’s co-pilot for the day. Lana Jenkin brought along her friend, Cathy, for a third time, since Keith is not well enough to join us right now. We hope he is out of rehab and home again soon. Marti’s Blue ’02 was in the mix again, this time driven by her brother-in-law, Patrick McConnell.

Bruce took us all around the back roads of Temecula, Winchester, western Hemet, and over to Temescal Canyon and parts of Lake Elsinore, before guiding us to the Golden Corral just off the 15 at Central. The manager had set aside a room for our group and Gillian was there to take care of us. There was plenty of turkey for those still craving it as well as a large variety of other dishes, so no one had any chance to go hungry.

Thanks to Bruce for a great run and to Wes for the photos and to everyone for joining in to have a good day to finish off November. We have plenty of other chances to get together still left in 2018 and then we can look forward to what we can come up with for 2019. Hope to see you at the Toys for Tots run and the Holiday Party. Get your holiday apparel out of the closet and come for the fun and the friendship!

Casa Jimenez
Tuesday, November 13, 2018

What are we going to do with ourselves in the morning for the rest of the year? This was the last of Carol and Marilyn’s masterfully planned breakfasts for 2018.

About 30 COTV morning folks turned up at Casa Jimenez for either Mexican or American platters to start of another cool and windy day. It was the usual cast of characters – with the singles, Bruce, Bill and Skip; the newest member of the Leadership Team, Wes (and Carole), the Treasurer-elect and photographer; and a less familiar face, Tom Hafeli, who came in and said hello and disappeared as quickly. Oh, let’s not forget Dave Hellman, back from a long European sojourn. The rest were the normal mix of old member faces – Hackworths, Glenores, McIntoshes, Weeks and almost as old ones, Becks, Stevens, Webers, Crooks, Thackwells. The whole gang was brought together by the Buotes (with Willie Nagle along for the meal) and the Watsons who have done this for a couple of years now and seem to be signed up for another one.

Thanks to everyone for sharing our last breakfast of the year. Hope to see you at the November MLR, the Toys For Tots Run and the Holiday Party to round out 2018.
