You won’t want to miss this great opportunity to meet up and travel with fellow Volvo owners on this June 9th drive. You can head up Thursday evening and jump in on the itinerary from the start or come up later and catch up with the crew where and when you’re comfortable.
Organizer, Rick Larson, has created a very informative set of documents (available for download HERE), which outline the itinerary, motel/hotel accommodations near the start of the tour as well as at the end of the tour. He has also included contact information for each stop – just in case you need them. The attendees will be communicating via FRS radios, and Larson has included information on obtaining an inexpensive set if you don’t already own one.
This event begins Friday morning at CMA Volvo Cars of Charlottesville and ends at the Hazy Mount Vinyard and Brewery on Friday afternoon (just in time for dinner). Close in proximity to Wintergreen Resort, many will likely choose to lodge there for the evening, then take a leisurely drive home on Saturday morning.
We hope you will be able to attend. All correspondence related to this event should be directed to the event organizer Rick Larson. Click HERE to email Rick.
Event organizer, Rachel Balderson, is inviting members of the Coastal Virginia Chapter to a car show. You can even participate, if you like. While the event is a display of classic cars owned by Active and Retired Military, non-military cars/owners are welcome. Just please read the following:
If someone wants to participate who is not active duty or retired military, they can either be escorted by someone who has base access; meaning they just have to drive in right behind the person with the access. Or there is a local population access form that can be filled out but it must be turned in at least three days in advance. They can reach out to me at this email to acquire that form.
To participate/register your classic car, complete the Registration Form, available here.

We have reserved park shelter #1. We will have hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, soda, water, and all the fixin’s. If you have any special requests, please let us know. It would be greatly appreciated if you would contact us (RSVP) if you plan on attending so that we might ensure appropriate food quantities.
