Cars & Coffee

Where: In front of the Columbia County Exhibition Center at 212 Partnership Dr in Grovetown, GA. Take exit 190 off I-20 and turn left onto Horizons S Parkway. Turn left like you are going to Walmart and drive on by further down that road. – map

An informal gathering of gearheads and their machines. Its a car show with no entry fees, no categories, no judges, no hassles, just come out and show off your ride. Facebook Page

This is the 3rd Anniversary meet, so because leather is the traditional gift for the third, only cars with leather seats will be allowed entry. OK, I was kidding about that, everyone is welcome, even if your ’92 Miata only has cloth seats.

March Meeting Minutes

When:  March 2nd, 2017

Where:  The Bradley, Aiken

Who:  Mike and Shirley Dyer, Dennis and Karol Mason, Daryl Shipman and Sherry Moore, Stacey Timmerman, Tom and Susan Varallo, Ralf and Annie Wilms, and we welcome back founding member Jim Bowers.

Thanks to Shirley Dyer for planning this dinner.  It was very good.  The Fish and Chips are a specialty, the Tomato Soup was homemade, and my Toasted Cheese sandwich had so much cheese I could only eat half!
