FCA-MAR Spring Thaw 2014!!

Hi Everyone,

Due to some uncontrollable circumstances, the FCA-MAR 2014 Spring Thaw has been moved to the Clydes Restaurant in Tyson's Corner, VA. 8332 Leesburg Pike Vienna, VA 22182. The event will still take place on Saturday, April 12th only the location has changed from Reston Town Centre to Tyson's Corner.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on April 12th!!

Bill P.

Bummer, That was such a great location. They should try for Rockville Town Center instead if Reston doesn't want us! Hopefully it won't be snowing!

The corvette club hosts an annual meet at Annapolis City Dock every year. It draws about 700 corvettes. The lots are closed to corvettes only where we host our Sunday CnC. It's a bucolic setting and quite an event.

Hi Kevin,

Noon to 4 PM. Everything is still the same, only the location has changed.

I've never been to that Clydes. What's the layout? Is it in a pedestrian type area like the Town Center or more just a resturant parking lot like the Clydes in Rockville?

Unfortunately it's just a restaurant type parking lot. You can use Google Maps to see it for yourself (8332 Leesburg Pike Vienna, VA 22182). Please keep in mind this change in venue was last minute. The Event Organizer did not have the opportunity to look for a similar pedestrian type layout that could accommodate up to 100 cars. It was either this or skip the event altogether, which we did not want to do.

I suggested on the other site, that if people would like to make suggestions for a new Spring Thaw site (in the event we don't go back to Reston Town Centre next year) to please post them in this thread. At least this way, I can then forward the ideas to the event organizer and see what happens next year.

Bill, my nomination for consideration above.

I'm curious what happened in Reston if anyone has heard any rumors? That was such a great spot.

Which one Ed?

The one picking your pocket, or the one playing pocket pool? Oh wait, she was cue-less.

kevin, RTC jacked up the fee like 10 fold to several thousand dollars. so they split.

The thing at Clydes sounds more like a bunch of guys meeting at a resturant and going inside and eating than a Spring Thaw? Do they even have outdoor seating?

Should see if National Harbor or the Georgetown waterfront would do anything?

I will be there. I agree that it won't be anything like RTC, but at least I can get together with you guys and talk Ferrari's. There are many better locations and I am sure next year we can use one of them. It is hard to make changes last minute for events like this so let's not throw stones. Much of our discussion while we are there can be about where to have it next year.

I'll still show up if the weather is nice. Just might not hang for 6 hours like last year if there is no good spots to hang outside.

Anyone know if they have arranged for any special parking or is it just a normal Sat lunch crowd and we have to fight for spots with the locals?
