RVV Fall Foliage Run

R.V.V Autumn Colors Run 2016
Eight R.V.V. Corvettes met at Carleton Park, Fredericton on a absolutely gorgeous Saturday, Oct. 8th. afternoon for their annual Autumn Colors run. The caravan of Vettes picked up Route 628 in Marysville and proceed to meander their way through some of the most colorful country side in the area. The landscape was ablaze of color as members made their way through Penniac, Durham Bridge, Taymouth, Astle, Boistown before becoming a unplanned Vette show at the Village Family Restaurant in Doaktown. Members were also treated to stops at the Riverbend Golf and Country Club in Durham Bridge and the McNamee/Priceville Footbridge in McNamee/Priceville and eventually cruised back to Fredericton on the very scenic, newly constructed Route 8 highway. John Garwood's photos will provide a more visual record of the day. Thanks John

RVV Corvettes at Bangor

RVV at Bangor for car show !

R.V.V in Bangor
When is the main event not always the main event? Read on. Six R.V.V. Corvettes attended the Wheels on the Waterfront show on Saturday, Sept. 10th. in Bangor, Me. The week-end began with a misty Friday morning drive to Bangor followed by wow lunch at Nick's Cruisin Diner. Lunch was followed by free time until all gathered for a very scenic cruise to Ellisworth and a wow free meal catered to by Darling's Chevrolet. Meanwhile, back at the motel the evening was capped off by a Corvette wash and a wowgathering in 415.
Saturday morning offered more shopping for some spouses and off to a wow  Car Show for the Corvettes. John J. And Kevin A. both won in their class!! The Saturday evening Casino visit was as interesting as usual with winners / losers at the buffet, slots and a live band.
The homeward bound Sunday drive was preceded by yet another visit to Nick's for a group breakfast followed by a Marden's stop in Lincoln, Me. Sooo, the main event of the week-end could have been any one of about six activities. Did I mention the good food at Nick's??

RVV Fundy Trail Run 2016

Sept. 17th. - R.V.V. visits The Fundy Trail
First and foremost a huge thank-you to Dave & Judy Griggs for organizing and hosting a truly great run! Five R.V.V Corvettes participated and those who missed this outing missed some truly spectacular scenery. Highlights of the run included a Tim's enroute stop in Sussex, a very scenic country road drive to St. Martins, some absolutely eye popping and humbling raw natural scenery, some mouth watering seafood at the Caves Restaurant, a stop at a century old B&B / antique / comfort food home and a drive home that saw an encounter with a dog, a deer, a mother bear and her two cubs and a yearling moose! Oh Yes, members need to ask the girls about the six cheeks in the woods at P2. Very funny.

N.B. Day in Hartland

Well, talk about your well kept secret!! This was it! R.V.V. had nothing planned for this week-end until Frank P. gave us a heads-up re the above. Although no members participated in Saturday's parade we had four Corvettes accept the invitation re the above celebration. It was a small car show, ( no awards, no detailing, no fees etc ) just show up and park on the closed Main Street. The covered bridge was also closed to traffic but was filled with vendors through the entire length. There were bands playing, all kinds of food stands, bingo, silent auction, line dancers rocking to different kinds of music. All of this and more under a beautiful sunny sky!!

The Smearer's BBQ

Minto, July 2nd. Parade & The Smearer's BBQ:
Unfortunately, all good things eventually come to an end and such was the case with the great weather this week-end. R.V.V 's participation in the Minto festival Parade did not happen because of forecasts of rain, wind and threat of thunder storms.😣 However, the post parade BBQ. hosted by Harley & Pat Smearer continued as usual! John & Jean, Wanda & Mark, Vernon & Julia, Harley & Pat and Harley's sister & brother-in-law attended and had a very calm and relaxing afternoon with no rain.☺

2016 May President's Run

President's Sweet Run - May 21st.
Thirteen Corvettes showed up at World Class Auto on this world class beautiful day to take part  in R.V.V.'s first fun run of the 2016 Corvette season. We took the country road tour through Harvey, Brockway, Lawrence Station and on into St. Stephen for a lunch break at the Red Rooster. ( very good service ) After lunch we stopped at the former Ganong's chocolate factory / museum for a tour and endless chocolate samples!!! ( my favorite was the Pal-o-Mine ) The post tour home trip included a quick stop in St. Andrews. The weather was great, the crowd was great, the chocolates were great and if you missed this one then you missed one sweet run!

RVV After Xmas Xmas Party 2016

After Xmas Xmas Party 2016
Finally, after a week postponement  22 R.V.V. members showed up in rare form ready to have a good time! There was lots of mingling and chit chat, addictive finger foods, mouth watering meat balls ( Karen ) and ribs ( Dave ), plenty of rolls/ biscuits, salads and delicious deserts. Other highlights included the very competitive trivia ( resembled W.W.E. ) won by Lisa and Mark and word scramble game won by John G. and Marilyn. The evening concluded with Wanda's hilarious Yankee Swap. Best presents ever!! Right John G.? If you didn't attend, you missed a great time. See the pictures. 
Wish Lois and I could have made it , but unfortunately Lois caught the cold bug. Looks like a good time by all.
Pictures given to me by Wanda Gadd and I believe the write up is by President , Vernon Patriquin.
