November 14, 2020 was a beautiful fall day and a perfect day for outdoor activities. River City Cruizers organized a Fall Festival and Craft Show at Noodles & Co. on Alverser Drive in Midlothian. Numerous vendors were on hand to show off their wares and there was a good, steady flow of customers for them throughout the day. We would like to extend a sincere THANK-YOU to the management and staff of Noodles & Co. for their generosity and hosting of this great event. Below are a few pictures taken during the festival.

October 17, 2020 could not have been a more beautiful day for a group run to Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway. Although there had been rain the night before the roads were 95% dry by the morning and 100% dry by departure time of 8:15AM. There were 3 planned stops along the way to our destination; a stop in Scottsville for a break, a fuel stop in Lovingston, and a stop at Silver Creek & Seamans Apple Orchard Store. The final stop was at Humpback Rocks Picnic Area for lunch. The picnic area worked out great as there are 91 individual tables so it was easy for everyone to perform their social distancing or to sit and eat with family members and their close circle of friends. If you did not go on this run, you missed a great time…….we may even do it again next year. Here are a few pictures of a couple of the pit stops, some of the lunch groups, and some of the cars that went along.

Sunday afternoon September 27, 2020 Windy Hills Sports Complex hosted the first annual River City Cruizers Car Show. The weather was very cooperative with mild temperatures and sunny skies. A total of 88 cars, trucks, and specialty vehicles were displayed, several vendors, and a large crowd of spectators and participants. Participants voted on the top 20 and another 24 awards were picked by sponsor representatives. There were door prizes, raffles, silent auction items, and a lucrative 50/50. Below are a few of the pictures that were taken. Feel free to browse them all. Thank You to all of the sponsors, participants, and spectators in attendance for helping to make this show such a fantastic event. We hope to see all of you again at next year’s show.

On Saturday July 25, 2020 River City Cruizers hosted a cruise-in fundraiser at Jon Smith Subs for the Spiritos School for Autism. Although it was a very hot afternoon 30 cars braved the heat to attend. A passing rain shower went through but it was short lived and left as quickly as it came. Here are a few pictures. More will be posted as they arrive.

On Friday May 8, 2020 several club members participated in a cruise orchestrated by Ron Clark of Virginia Street Rodders. The group met at the Dairy Queen on Route 5 in Varina, took a very scenic ride down Virginia By-Way Route 5 to Jamestown. At that point we loaded all the cars onto the ferry and crossed the James River. On the return trip we traveled Route 10 through Hopewell and returned home. The forecast was for rain in the afternoon but we were dry and sunny for the entire trip.

The club’s first “official” outing was Saturday April 25, 2020. With the restrictions placed on everyone due to COVID-19 this was just a “cruise around” to see some of the landmarks and scenery in Richmond and it’s surrounding areas. Although the day was overcast with the possibility of rain later in the afternoon the cruise was a great success and everyone that came along had a good time, if for no other reason just to get out with their car and participate in a group activity. Some even said we took them places in Richmond they had never seen. The drive concluded at one of the local Bruster’s Ice Cream shops in the mid-afternoon, that’s when we got a little wet as a lingering shower passed our way. We hope to have another similar event next month. Hopefully the COVID-19 restrictions will be eased and we can do some socializing at stops along the way. Below are some pictures of some of the cars that participated.
