November 21st at 6pm
Our NVCC Christmas Lights Rallye is a fun and easy event for everyone, even if you have never done a rallye before. We put a twist on a traditional rallye by answering questions about the holiday lights path, no directions to have to worry about getting lost. The route will guide you to the entrance of the “Bull Run Festival of Lights,” which is where the questions will begin.
We selected November 21st, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, to run the event early in the season like last year to avoid the super-sized crowds the lights get closer to the holidays. We will be running a single rallye- most correct answers win. Weather should still be good, but just in case Corvettes are not required to participate. You can run it alone or have a car full of people, it’s up to you since it’s on closed roads and very slow driving.
The route end is still TBD -but it will either be at the carnival area at the end of the lights or possibly Ciro’s pizza in Centerville- more details to come about this as I am finalizing with Bull Run the details for our group. They have not gotten word from the carnival when they will be finished setup so watch for additional emails on this. I will provide instructions at the drivers meeting the event night no matter what so everyone will know where to go. We still plan to head over for dinner at Ciro's Pizza after, as it is a great by-the-slice pizza for anyone interested in joining.
We will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners prizes
NOTE: Special awards will also be given such as:
Best Ugly Sweater!
So bring your Christmas spirit and have fun!
Cost to rallye: $5.00 / car
Note: Admission to Bull Run Festival of Lights is required, $30/per car if purchased in advance. You can purchase early on their website:
This is discounted from the at the gate/ door price ($40.00/car at the door).
NOTE: Select for the 5:30-7:30pm time slot.
Starbuck Parking Lot: 14155 Saint Germain Dr. Centreville, VA 20121
(Grab a drink if desired and head to the back of the parking lot where we will gather the cars).
Start Time: 6:00pm
(Driver Meeting Starts at 6:15pm, Cars out by ~6:25pm)

This year, the Governor would not allow the central site, so 17 venues were chosen that all participants could cruise into over the two days. This year’s activities appear below to give you a flavor of what is to come. Over 400 vehicles participated from all over the eastern seaboard, including at least two dozen Corvettes of which at least 5 were C8s:
- Wednesday night – Drag racing at OBX speedway (1.5 hrs. west on mainland) $15, drive in and race to your heart’s content
- Thursday night 6PM-8PM – informal welcome at Richard Quigly’s (charity organizer) American Classic Garage
- Friday-Saturday 11 AM-5PM – cruising the 17 venues (restaurants and shops)
- Friday night – unsanctioned meets at several large venues, one in Manteo with a live band
For those who have never done this, folks come from as far away as the Gulf coast and the Northeast, many trailering their cars to the beach. They rent houses from various rental companies (now COVID prepped), or stay in one of many hotels from the lowest to highest price ranges. Many stay for a week and, given the spring timing, rates and weather should be good for outdoor dining and touring.
More information will be provided as it become available. We hope to see many more Vettes this year!
Will impose on Kris McCandless again to lead a great drive to the Circus. We will meet at a location in Warrenton 11 am ; head to a local restaurant TBD and then follow Kris at his usual casual pace to the Circus. Plan to arrive 1P as pre-show starts at 2p and full show at 2:30P sharp. I asked about the Pavilion for "Corvette ONLY use". At this time, they have removed the tables so I'm sticking with "dine ahead" BUT there is a "food truck" on the Circus grounds with lots of options. Biplane rides are available for a decent price. Bring folding chairs if you have them. There is "grandstand seating" too. Show will end 4pm. I normally don't send Facebook links but this one has excellent photos of Circus aircraft. If you've been to it in the past, you know that they do a great job ..if you haven't been ..it's a treat. NO ..it's not F22's (ok, Dick H . sorry, ...not F4's!) but it is great flying with wonderful aircraft that led to the modern ones that we see today.

We chose the mansion at Gunston Hall to be in the background. Why, you may ask? Gunston Hall was home to George Mason IV, a founding father, senior statesman, author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, and he was among the first to call for such fundamental American liberties as religious toleration and freedom of the press. Additionally, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights were all influenced by George Mason's political perspectives.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to have you and your car included on the cover of Blue Bars magazine!
This is a RAIN or SHINE event.
The cost is $10 per person, which includes the photo shoot and tours of the mansion and the grounds.
There are three optional layouts (included in the attached), with a maximum of 31 Corvettes. Please note that, based on interest, we may be able to squeeze in more Corvettes.
We’ll start lining up cars at 10:00AM. If you decide to show up at the last minute, there’s no guarantee that you or your car will be in the picture.
Please sign up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or at the Jan – Mar GBMs.
Northern Virginia Corvette Club
Officer at Large
I hope you are enjoying your long holiday weekend, maybe getting out for a cruise in this gorgeous weather. I want to let everyone know that Lynn & I will be throwing a big Christmas bash and you all are invited. The event will be on Saturday, Dec 17 from 4:00 till the last person leaves. Sorry, no fancy flyer.
We don’t live quite as far south as Stewart & Carol, but I realize Fredericksburg is still a long haul for many (we’re off of US 17, which is exit 133). However, for those who are hardy enough to make the trip we’d love to see you.
Please RSVP to Lynn at email@example.com or 540-273-0501.
We are asking that every guest bring non-perishable goods for the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank. We will have a donation box on the porch.
The address is 72 Journeys Way, Fredericksburg, VA 22406. If you haven’t updated your GPS in a while, beware that it may try to take you through the new reservoir. I recommend avoiding that route, as the lake is way deeper than Back Creek. To avoid that fate, take I95 exit 133, US 17 north past the WalMart (about 5 miles). From there your GPS is probably good, but just in case…
Turn left on Holly Corner Rd (Rt 655) – there is no light at this intersection, it’s the second left after the light at WalMart. Go approx. 2 miles then left on W. Rocky Run Rd. Go approx. 1.5 miles then right on River Acres Ln. Go straight through the stop sign and down the hill. Right on Rivergate Dr, then right on Journeys Way. We are the only house on the right. Don’t be afraid to pull into the driveway. If the weather is right and the grass is not muddy then we can park many cars beside the driveway.
Ho Ho Ho!
This event is organized to meet the Officers from the day and evening shifts, to express our thanks for their service.
It takes place during Police Memorial Week, to benefit the widows and orphans of fallen Officers.
Event Staging/Time: Meet up at 1:00pm at Rolling Valley Mall; head out for Springfield Police Dept at 1:15pm. See attached flyer for more details.
Event Location: Springfield Police Department for one hour
Post-Event Meal: After departing the Police Station at 2:30pm, we will dine at a local eatery.
Event Questions: Call or message Bob Devery at 703-786-2147; he will email directions to the Police Station. Alternatively, email Kris McCandless at firstname.lastname@example.org for directions.

Subject: Oxon Hill Middle School Challenge Day car show, May 26, 10-2pm rain or shine
The show is a go for the club, we have 5 cars going so far. The school is providing lunches for us and they are very happy we are coming.
We can meet at Springfield Town Center (Mall) at about 9:30am and caravan across the river to MD together. Let's meet at the north west corner of the mall parking lot (near Franconia Road and Loisdale Road), right off the exit of I95. I will be towing my Vette, so I should be easy to spot. If you have any suggestions for an alternate meeting point, let me know.
This is a rain or shine event. I told the school, that unless there is a hurricane coming through that day, we will be there. I have two canopys I can bring in addition to the club canopy. These are coming with me even if it is a sunny day! I will have bottled water too. FYI, my car does not have window glass is the doors, those were removed when the interior was gutted for the conversion into a race car. I may have to use one of the canopies for my car, can't have the kids getting wet sitting in the car!
If you can make the show, there is still time to get signed up and have a commercial background check done prior to the show. This check is a requirement of the school system and the link is below. It takes a few minutes to complete and costs $7.26.
You will get an email about 4-5 days after completing the check that you will need to bring with you to the show. I had one done for Lynn, as she is coming too.
I want to say again, the school is extremely happy we are coming to their Challenge Day with our cars. I am excited we are coming and am looking forward to a good show.
Let me know if you are going to sign up, or if you have any questions.
We have greatly expanded the site at NRA HQ in Fairfax, VA. and are already starting vehicle registrations for the Sunday, September 24th show date (9am-3pm). I am reaching out to all local clubs, etc. to encourage both the sharing of the event as well as their members’ participation.
Attached is the show’s flyer for both electronic and printed distribution. Posting to club sites and other social media is strongly encouraged!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, club & vendor inquiries, or to register a vehicle.
