2020 Meetings and Events

CVMC meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month. The location of meetings is established by CVMC volunteers and changes to a different restaurant each month.

Members gather at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy a meal and social time, which is followed by a discussion of club business and the opportunity to share news about our cars or other information of interest to club members.

Rallies are held throughout the year and provide opportunities to enjoy a group Miata drive through the beautiful Virginia countryside. Although the schedule varies, rallies are generally held on the third Saturday of each month, weather permitting.

TJ Max, Advance Auto, Petco Store, and Wal-Mart are in the same shopping center.

Please reply in comments on our Facebook page if you plan on going so we can make sure all are accounted for before we head over to the mall together.

This will be my first time attending but we have a veteran, Brian Munsey, who will be able to help us find our way. Hope to see you Saturday

4 Rules For Preventing Coronavirus Spread During the Rally

Here are some rules to protect us and others during our time together:

  1. Stay Home if you have symptoms like a fever and a cough – Even if your symptoms are mild, you should stay home. You may feel like you’ll be okay and intend to keep completely to yourself, but you can’t predict what might happen if you go on a rally. If you are infected with Coronavirus, you may accidentally spread it to others.
  2. Wear a mask and be serious about social distancing – Keep yourself and your stuff six feet away from everybody else when at rest stops, when you get gas, grab a bite to eat or use restrooms. Germs can travel outside.
  3. Bring hand sanitizer & sanitizing wipes – Use hand sanitizer and wipes every time you touch surfaces. Be especially careful with doors, light switches, bathroom surfaces and anywhere people handle food.
  4. Watch your gear – When you stop, there’s a tendency to set purses, backpacks, keys, wallets and cell phones down on surfaces. You don’t know what germs live there. Whenever possible lock your stuff in your car or carry it in your pockets instead of setting it down
