In 2019, Bob Meyer became President after two years serving as Vice President. Bob joined ODCC shortly after purchasing his first Corvette and served in that role for three years. The ODCC board implemented a new website in 2019 after a large needs assessment and what turned into regular monthly board meetings, and Bob serves as webmaster. Two moves happened in 2019, the annual All Corvette Cruise In moved down the street from the Manassas Best Buy location to Bomnin Chevrolet and our annual banquet was moved to a new venue in Haymarket (VA), after many years at various restaurants in Leesburg followed by five consecutive years in the historic manor house at Belmont County Club in Ashburn. Bob led the club through the pandemic with creative Zoom meetings for both the Board of Directors and members and even scheduled several parking lot meetings with proper social distancing. We even continued our annual Cruise-In, with mitigations, that year. ODCC events picked back up after Covid and never missed a beat.
Other events ODCC has participated in annually over the years have included well known events like the Captain Billy’s Crab Cruise, the Leesburg July 4th Parade, Summer Thunder, the Winchester Apple Blossom Parade, Corvettes at Carlise, Carz Cruisin to Cure Cancer, the Corvette Club of Richmond Roundup in Richmond, the Zip Products show in Mechanicsville VA, the Fredericksburg Corvette Cruz-in hosted by Battlefield Corvette Club, Corvettes on the Bay in Annapolis and Free State Corvette Club’s annual Corvettes at the Beach each October, in Ocean City, MD. More than once ODCC has had enough Corvettes registered in Ocean City to achieve recognition as one of the top 15 of all clubs attending the event.
ODCC has also participated as a group in the Redskins Rides Car Show at Redskins Park in Ashburn, NVCC’s Corvettes Care Car Show at Page Chevrolet and Pohanka Chevrolet, NVCC’s Summer Picnic, NVCC’s Ducard Winery Cruise-In, NCRS Corvette Day at Sully Plantation, NRA Car Show in Fairfax, the Truck and Toss charity fundraiser for Grace Christian Academy, Horton Winery Pig Roast and Cars for the Cure Drive to End Diabetes at the Great Falls Village (a show started by a former ODCC member.) The club has also sponsored dinners for enlisted and their families at the Fort Belvoir USO, funding and serving dinner, and showing our cars for the families.
