Breakfast Social – July 29, 2019

My, oh, my! We have just been blessed with such an overabundance of COTV get-togethers in the last week, so perhaps some of the group took a break and didn’t head out for another meal, our bi-monthly breakfast social. We were an intimate group of 27 meeting at Richie’s in Temecula and that included the Orsinis’ friend, Janet Cherry, who was also on the MLR the day before, and Ray and Judy’s 2 youngest grandchildren.

As per usual COTV protocol, there were quite a few at the long table well before the 9am start time. Roxy served those of us who were there with coffee and then we placed orders as we had arrived so that she did not have to handle them all at the same time. Why is it such a surprise to some of us that their meals are so huge? It is not as if we haven’t eaten there many times. Just a word to the wise, the cinnamon roll is really as GIANT as advertised. It is a meal all by itself.

Thanks as always to Carol and Marilyn, and their other halves, for organizing another great get-together.

We Met At Paradise!

July has more often than not been designated as the Lou Long/Paradise Chevrolet lunch run and has taken us near and far as dictated by Lou and now, Lou and Julee’s imagination. This year, just to complicate his life, Paradise had the local showcase for the new C-8 at the dealership just 3 days before the run. Two major events to plan and participate in with short notice and in a tight time frame made the lunch run a little less of a hot button for many club members it seems, as turn-out was not as large as we have seen in the past few years. In order to help Lou fit all of this planning (as well as a normal work schedule) into his life some of the Leadership Team members offered to oversee the run part if he and Julee selected and arranged the lunch part.

No one seemed to get an exact count of the cars at Paradise for the photo op, but it was probably closer to 40 than our 50 + in the last two years. Anyhow, for Kevin and Trish Gage, new members on their first MLR, it was still a smorgasbord of great cars to look at and photograph. About 37 cars went on the drive and 34 cars stayed for the lunch. Because the main event is really coming to Paradise, looking at all the cars, eating a donut and taking photos, it was determined to make the drive an easy one so that we didn’t lose any cars, as has sometimes happened, so no fancy turns or scenic routes were selected.

However, even the best laid plans can go off track as some schedule changes were required at departure and this put us at the luncheon venue earlier than the restaurant wanted us to be there. Sometimes management at both ends make independent decisions that throw us all off . Anyhow, it all worked out pretty well – no one got lost, we eventually got into the Old Spaghetti Factory in San Marcos and everyone got to eat their 3 course lunch with all their new and old friends.

Thanks to Lou and Julee for all their hard work Wonder what we will do in 2020!!!

COTV Annual Picnic
June 9, 2019



As the date for the annual picnic drew nearer, the Leadership Team got more concerned as summer weather seemed never to arrive. Remember our Memorial Day 2019 MLR? Well, if you were there, you would remember the rain, cold and fog and just missing a snowfall at Lake Arrowhead. It seems that we fretted and worried in vain, as Summer is here, folks, and it arrived just in time for the picnic.

In 2019, we returned to a familiar former location for our picnic, Wolf Creek Park in Temecula. The advantages to this park are numerous – grassy lawns, easy to find location, gazebos with concrete picnic tables, restrooms (although they ARE park restrooms so no 5 star amenities!) and parking in either the lot or on the street backing the park. The disadvantages are less numerous but can be daunting – no reservations taken, no alcohol allowed, no food vendors on site just deliveries. 
So we worked around them to provide a happy day in the sun for the membership.

A group arrived early to stake out as many tables as needed with yellow caution tape, which means most of the park. Thanks to Ray and Judy for giving up their very early morning on a busy family day to meet at the park, clean tables, empty trash, do the preliminary set-ups, lay out the bocce ball court, and hang around until Doug and Marilyn arrived to continue with the early prep. Thanks to Bill Stedfield for picking up our old tables from Scott Dittmer at Precision and bringing them and a nice big cooler at 9am. Thanks to Wayne and Daphne for bringing their new car to continue helping to set things up. Thanks to John and Jerri-Lynne for helping with a Costco dessert shopping trip in advance. Thanks to Harry and Sharon for bringing the pop-ups to put over the food tables. Huge thanks to Curt and Darlena for so much – researching food vendors and ordering both Dickey’s barbecue and pizza, for bringing more chips from another Costco trip, and setting up a Hawaiian themed “photo booth” and taking numerous pictures of the happy attendees. Really Huge thanks to Mike Re for organizing the whole shebang, doing his own shopping for drinks, and being there early to set up and staying later to clean up.


We thank the members (we think there were 66 of you!) who came to have fun and to do what we do best, eat and talk. It was good to see both the old (in terms of membership, not age) members like Bill and Sandi, Joe and Rosemary, Vance and Susan and Mike and Micha, as well as the newer ones, the Erhardts, who are now turning up more and more so must be enjoying their car and maybe the company and the Orsinis who are not so new any more.

A final big thanks to those stalwart folks who stepped up to help clean up. The true worth of a friend is measured by their willingness to clean up someone else’s mess before an event and then clean up their own mess after one of our own. Good luck to whoever plans next year’s picnic, because Mike has set a high bar to meet!

It Did NOT Rise Over the MLR

IMGP5720


Wow! What an amazing and mysterious lunch run this was! Remember, before you read further, that the Memorial Day weekend is the “unofficial” start of summer. Jim and Diane took that into consideration while planning this trip into an unknown (and invisible) world, but Mother Nature didn’t play fair with them at all.


We had 22 cars at the meeting place, with all of us standing around shivering under umbrellas, hats and extra jackets. Jim had warned that we needed full gas tanks and since most of us have experienced a “Sommars Special” MLR before, we took him at his word. It was the usual group, although Norm and Ronette brought along Christian and Alexis, newly wed folks who are a rare exception to the current younger generations and seem to have the “car gene.” The Erhardts, relatively new members, were literally getting their feet wet in the MLR experience.


The general directions to the group, with Jim in the lead and Bill Stedfield in the rear guard, were to go north on the 15 to the 215 and then keep going. Marilyn Glenore was the only wise one of the group as she changed direction part way through and headed home, thinking that she didn’t want to drive in the rain for a long way without a co-pilot. Smart decision, Marilyn!


The weather didn’t get any better except for brief breaks in the rain as we headed northbound on the 215, zigging and zagging through Riverside as required, then continuing uphill onto CA 18 and Waterman Avenue. Because we were so spread out, we lost three cars who missed the Waterman exit, but they found us later. At the Carl’s Jr potty stop, we had 18 cars so we knew we were shy a few, but unsure exactly who. Remember that if you are out of line of sight, you probably can’t hear the radios either, so we had no way to talk to the little lost lambs. That is why we have the secret instructions and that is how the group ended up in the same place.


Actually, it is amazing that any of us ended up in the same place. As we climbed higher we got into FOG, FOG and MORE FOG, so could hardly see the car in front of us on the tight, curvy roads up to Crestline, Blue Jay and Lake Arrowhead. Our lunch destination was in Lake Arrowhead Village and we did all end up at the Lake Arrowhead Deli. A lot of other folks were in the Village and also in the Deli as they had gone into the mountains for a fun in the sun long weekend and ended up in the rain, with the potential for snow (which did actually fall in the later afternoon!).


The Deli serves pizza, hot and cold sandwiches and salads. As Diane said, it was amazing that on a day like this, they had no soup available. The servings were sizeable. Ask Marti about her gigantic calzone! Lots of to-go boxes went back down the hill with the departing Corvettes.


Well, it was not we expected, not what the Sommars planned, but it certainly was an adventure. As Darlena said, we should do this run again but in better weather so we could actually see the Lake and also see where we were going. Thanks to Jim and Diane for all their planning, but obviously you can’t control Mother Nature.
