Jamestown Cruise on Sat. 4/9/11!

Post  Blue Totoro on Sun 6 Mar - 4:34

C3Vs is doing this cruise to Jamestown once more! Last year was awesome...great weather and great VW fun. The ferry trip to Surry and lunch at the Surry House restaurant are not to be missed this year!!! What's more...I'll be flying in for the cruise this year (I think I picked a good weekend to come and check out our house in Chesterfield and do some work!). Here is a link to our forum on thesamba.com

Meeting at 10am at the Wendy's on Route 10 and I-295 in Chester! See you there!

Awesome, leaker!! I just got word that a lot of VW Cruisers will be coming down, too. Let's make sure they don't outnumber the C3V crowd! Also, a group from PanAir VWs (West Virginia) will be joining us as well as a good sized group from the Peninsula VW club in Hampton Roads. Should be a great time! Pray for sunny skies!

Cool, Scott! Just picked up a bus and the engine needs a rebuild. Got my literature on how to do one and the base has a nice shop with tools. Gonna be busy this summer! Should be a learning experience.

Anyways...I thought I'd let everyone know what my schedule will be like the weekend of the Jamestown cruise so if anyone wants to hook up in case they can't make the cruise. On Friday night, April 8th we'll be at the Iron Bridge Sports Park for the cruise-in. Saturday, of course, is the Jamestown cruise. We may be doing the cruise-in at Hardees in the evening and most likely hitting up El Patron Mexican Restaurant in Chester (the Ukrops shopping center on Route 10 and Centralia). As for Sunday, the Richmond Flying Squirrels are in town and Bill and I were going to catch a game. Who's up for that? An afternoon at the Diamond is a lot of fun...game is at 2pm.

Send me an email at brimako@verizon.net if you want to come to the game on Sunday...or call me at (804) 822-6746. Look forward to seeing everyone!

probably see you on Fri & Sat, but Sunday is the Farmington show. Usually a good show to hit, about as big as Mananas minus all the H2O

We had a really good time also. Sorry we didn't make it to El patron's. By the time I did some stuff that I had to do I didn't really feel like doing anything else.

Hey everyone...the cruise was awesome!!! We had 18 VWs out there cruisin' around the plantations and the Jamestown settlement. We stopped off at Sherwood forest for a few pics and to chat a little then proceeded to the ferry. We all got on no problem and met at the Surry House restaurant for lunch. Just like last year they had the banquet area reserved for us and the food was great. I highly recommend the corned beef sandwich!

The return trip to Jamestown was pretty exciting. One of the larger ferries broke down and so they sent the 25 car ferry to pick us up...well, based on the number of cars in line, one C3V'er was going to be left behind and it just so happened to be Bill and his red truck. I'm sure he was ranting and raving as we all stood at the rear of the boat waving and yelling Bon Voyage to Bill Laughing

Eventually we all made it over and we decided to take a short drive down the Colonial Parkway. A group from the Peninsula VW Club out of Newport News guided us and showed us a sweet place to take pictures right on the river. It was great! I'll post the pictures later today. I hope everyone that went had a great time and for those that didn't, well, you missed out and I hope you'll come out next year!
