This put a smile on John's face!!!! Add one to yours. Our Porsche friends run one of the finest track weekends you will find anywhere. If you're a novice you will have and instructor with you in the passenger seat. Class room sessions are mandatory. Learn the nuances of real racing and apply them as you perform your laps. This Track Day is a Riesentöter Region PCA Event. Many Carlisle MINI members have joined them and we always come away impressed. We encourage you to consider the Friday event (stand alone) if you are a novice as Jefferson is less demanding than Shenandoah.

- 3rd Annual CVCC Riverbend Hop Farm and Brewery social event
The 3rd Annual Cumberland Valley Corvette Club Riverbend Hop Farm and Brewery social event will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019 for Lunch and Brew. Looks like our MINI clan and not worn out the welcome as they invited us to join them for the third year. We will meetup at 10:30 AM at the Carlisle Events Registration Building Parking lot on the left just prior to entering Gate 3 of the Fairgrounds. After the Participants Briefing and Admin, we will depart for Riverbend at 11:00 AM. This year, the CVCC Brew Team will be brewing and introducing a smooth Amber Ale. In addition to numerous other beer selections, wine, spirits, and soft drinks are also available. The food trucks are no longer as Riverbend now has it's own in-house kitchen and variety menu. As the Brewery has matured and improved, this year's social will be held in the barn's newly completed loft where they just recently hosted their first Wedding and Reception. Check out their website for more information about the Brewery, their Beers, and the Menu: www.riverbendhopfarmandbrewery.com We hope to see you there!
