Hosted by Lynne & John Vara

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.

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!!!
