Our club has always rolled out in large numbers for weekend activities and runs, and that is to be expected. You can’t spend all of your time doing chores, watching football or waiting for the sunset . No, I say! Leave that for the non-Corvette people.
Well then, what about the other five days of the week? They are just as beautiful as Saturday and Sunday, and there is some expensive gas in the tank. So I say let’s hit the road for a MID-WEEK run in our Vettes and the heck with work or television or whatever!
Wednesday, October 24th was just one of those days for 28 of our club people as we got together for such an escape to the Cold Springs Tavern for some driving fun and excellent eating.
It was also an excellent opportunity for Jim and Donna Webster to introduce their brand new 2019 Admiral Blue Grand Sport to the open road.
Our fifteen Corvettes looked terrific all the way outbound on CA 126, north on US 101 and up the San Marcos Pass Road on CA154 as your “road captain lead the procession. At the summit, our trusted “mountain goat” Steve Turkheimer took the lead through the curves on Stagecoach Road on to our destination since he knew every curve and also to give him his choice of the few parking spots available.
San Marcos Pass is to most off the beaten track and the Cold Springs Tavern is almost off the grid, but it is top notch with their service, food and ambiance. Our Activities Committee made a great call putting this run on the schedule as a weekday destination.
The fortunate 28 in attendance for the hump-day run were: Jim & Donna Webster, Dick Meier and Leah Granen, Steve Hilton & Jo Ayers, Dave & Karen Jewett, Dan & Marcia Stern; Les Hershberger & Mami Wong, Steve & Judy Turkheimer, Shelia Percivalle and Linda Roselund, Tom & Judy Tomlinson, Don & Connie Ceo, Gene Schmidt, Brian de Avila, Jim & Maggie Bancroft and Mike & Judy Woodings.
An informal survey of all attendees was taken and their unanimous response indicated the continued viability of the Santa Clarita Valley Corvette Club…none of Wednesday’s caravanners had any relocation plans on their schedule or in mind!
