The 2015 Fairfax Circle C & C Thread

With the demise of the Sunday Fair Lakes Cars & Coffee, we needed to find another venue. Several Fair Lakes regulars worked hard to find a place where we could resume meeting on Sundays. The owner of the property knows our intentions, and the Fairfax Police are aware that we are starting this up. There is a small coffee shop at the edge of the lot.

It is VERY important that, going into this, everyone knows what expectations of the attendees will be: (quoting another member here)

"We are asking if people attend that they be respectful, drive like an adult, and set a good example to the community and prove that we can enjoy the cars and the fellowship without demonstrating the sound of our exhaust or the smoke off our tires.

FFX City police are aware of the gathering and will help keep things in check for those who seem to want to display bad behavior entering or exiting the lot."

Fair Lakes regulars know what a loss we have endured. With the larger group keeping an eye out for bad actors, we hope to be here for a long time. Expect that tolerance for idiots will be short.

Location:
Fairfax Circle is the intersection of 29 (Fairfax Blvd.) and Old Lee Highway. We use the parking spaces nearest 29, between the Harley dealer and the Fairfax Circle intersection. This is the same lot as Artie's (though the lot we use is on the opposite side of the property). The large sign for the lot has Bowl America, Artie's and Fast Eddie's on it.

Schedule:
We are looking at a starting time of 8:00AM each Sunday, in part because the coffee shop (Cameron's Coffee and Chocolates, 9639 Fairfax Blvd Fairfax, VA) is not open until 8:00AM.

--Bob Collum

P.S.: Today, at the very first 'official' Fairfax Circle C & C, one attendee left the lot and made an impressive (to him) speed run down 29, in front of the lot. He was immediately apprehended and ticketed, and a cheer for the police went up from the assembled C & C crowd. The moral - we just lost a venue because of idiotic behavior; we won't be tolerant of it at the new location.

It rained like hell, all day Saturday. Today's cool, dry weather made up for it!

A good turnout on a sunny Sunday. Two Ferraris showed up, but I somehow did NOT get a picture of the 360 Spyder!

I have been attending the Great Falls meet for about a year now and people kept saying the Fair Lakes one was just as great. Sad to hear that happened. I will definitely try to make it to the new Fairfax Circle C & C. Thanks for sharing this!

Fairfax Circle C & C, 08/02/15

I've been away the last few weeks, but the FFX Circle C & C has continued to be a local favorite. I only saw one Ferrari there today, but a nice one - a 599 GTB!

Several of us went out to Dulles Landing early, and came by Fairfax Circle (which starts later) afterwards.

Fairfax Circle C & C, 08/09/15

I stopped by Fairfax Circle after spending the early morning at Dulles Corner C & C. I saw at least 10 other people who did the same. I only had time to snap a few pictures before going over to Artie's for brunch.

FFX Circle, 11/15/15

I have been away from Fairfax Circle for a while. Not a bad turnout for a cool Sunday, and we always get good food & drink at Cameron's, the coffee and chocolate shop nearby.

I plan to start hitting up Dulles Corner and Fairfax Circle. Looks like a good crowd and I love seeing a large variety of cars.

Cold and windy, but we still had a good variety of cars today, brought out by people who can't be put off by a little chill in the air.

Dang it,

Sorry I missed this morning. I went out to Dulles Landing Shopping Center and there were very few rides left when I arrived. A couple bikes and "little red corvette" parked diagonally. My wife wanted to go to Cracker Barrel after so I did not make it to FFX. I will next Sunday weather permitting.

Thanks for the great photos. I wish I could have made it this morning. I have never seen a Lotus Evora in person. That would have been a treat. I will try to be out next Sunday.

Your camera Rocks!!!

Bald Eagle, 11/22/15

Thanks, Mike.

Side note: On my drive to Fairfax Circle this morning, I happened to notice a bald eagle in a tree near my neighborhood. The eagles have been in our area for a few years, but a severe storm a couple of months ago destroyed their nest. We're hoping they rebuild near here.

I thought I saw Eagles last week out near the Loudon County Area on Saturday. They used to be near where the NOAA Campus is near Dulles.

You make sure you keep you camera handy at all times, which is a good thing for the fans of your photograpy. I went back through the forum and have enjoyed the clear, clean, and poignant photos of the cars. Very good of you to chronicle things for the groups.

Cheers!
