2023 Meetings and Events

CVMC meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month. The location of meetings is established by CVMC volunteers and changes to a different restaurant each month.

Members gather at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy a meal and social time, which is followed by a discussion of club business and the opportunity to share news about our cars or other information of interest to club members.

Rallies are held throughout the year and provide opportunities to enjoy a group Miata drive through the beautiful Virginia countryside. Although the schedule varies, rallies are generally held on the Saturday following the monthly meeting, weather permitting.

Then we will cruise along more familiar roads (but in reverse from normal) ending up at “Casa de Judy" located at 11019 Chippoke Place, Chester.

Once we arrive at Roger and Judy's home, please do not park on any cultivated grass! They, and their neighbors, have irrigation heads placed along the roadway edge.

REMEMBER to bring your own picnic lunch, camp chair (one per car should work) and beverage!  Roger and Judy will have bottled water and a limited beer selection available.

Volunteers to lead the 2nd group and the 2 trail cars are needed and appreciated.

Please RSVP Judy by May 17th if you will be attending the rally and/or the picnic on the patio at the end of the rally.
