2020 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 third Saturday of each month, weather permitting.

TJ Max, Advance Auto, Petco Store, and Wal-Mart are in the same shopping center.

This will be my first time attending but we have a veteran, Brian Munsey, who will be able to help us find our way. Hope to see you Saturday

Rally: September 19 - Rally to Judy and Roger's Hacienda

IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND THIS RALLY, please respond to this email as soon as you receive it or before 11:00 PM, Tuesday, September 15 so Judy and Roger can plan the rally and picnic accordingly.

Judy and Roger have planned a rally that ends at their house for a "bring-your-own" lunch.

We will assemble by 9:15 a.m. for a 9:30 a.m. departure from the Publix Super Market at Cosby Village.

Publix Super Market at Cosby Village
7200 Cosby Village Road
Chesterfield, VA 23832
804-639-6525
(Hull St (US 360) and Otterdale Road)

Judy and Roger suggest that everyone stop at the Wawa or Exxon Gas Station between Route 288 and the Publix to fill one tank and drain any others as they have not yet gone into the Publix to look at their accommodations. 
 
Our mid-point stop will be at the:

Sheetz Station
Intersection of US 60 and US 522 (which becomes Maidens Road North Bound at that intersection)

Then, we'll head back to Roger and Judy's hacienda at:

11019 Chippoke Place
Chester, VA 23831

We'll leave it to everyone's comfort level whether to be indoors or outdoors as we would have a hard time getting everyone on the patio.

What you will need to bring for the Brown Bag Lunch:

  • Your Picnic Lunch
  • Judy and Roger may not have enough chairs and sitting wall space on the patio to accommodate everyone so they recommend that you bring a chair just in case..
  • Indoor space will be available to those that choose that.
  • Judy intends to provide some sort of desserts, chips and beverages.
  • (Masks/Sanitizers mentioned below)

4 Rules For Preventing Coronavirus Spread During the Rally

Here are some rules to protect us and others during our time together:

  1. Stay Home if you have symptoms like a fever and a cough – Even if your symptoms are mild, you should stay home. You may feel like you’ll be okay and intend to keep completely to yourself, but you can’t predict what might happen if you go on a rally. If you are infected with Coronavirus, you may accidentally spread it to others.
  2. Wear a mask and be serious about social distancing – Keep yourself and your stuff six feet away from everybody else when at rest stops, when you get gas, grab a bite to eat or use restrooms. Germs can travel outside.
  3. Bring hand sanitizer & sanitizing wipes – Use hand sanitizer and wipes every time you touch surfaces. Be especially careful with doors, light switches, bathroom surfaces and anywhere people handle food.
  4. Watch your gear – When you stop, there’s a tendency to set purses, backpacks, keys, wallets and cell phones down on surfaces. You don’t know what germs live there. Whenever possible lock your stuff in your car or carry it in your pockets instead of setting it down
