First ever--Saturday 10 August -- Autocross 
DCFiats will offer an Autocross Day on 10 August in Winchester VA, in partnership with the Capital Driving Club .  In a nutshell, for a small registration fee of $30, you'll have six individual runs on a safe and flat course defined by rubber cones in a parking lot. You run at your chosen speed and try to improve your times with each run.  Convertibles need not have roll bars, but your car will submit to a short safety inspection before you begin the first of your timed runs.  CDC  is providing the timing equipment, insurance and direction, because safety is paramount in this event.  Registration and tech inspection begin sharply at 0815 on the 10th.  Details about the event and the registration forms are on our page.  Sign up for this fun event, bring some folding chairs and your family and enjoy!  POC is Tim Murray   
Saturday 24 August-- Vintages in Virginia
Details are on our website/events, with maps and directions.  24 August, meet at the new Walmart in Haymarket VA at 10000, at the Rte 15 exit of I-66. Gas up at the nearby Sheetz.  Depart at 1030 for scenic drives through the Virginia hills, Shenandoah National Forest, and along the ridge of the George Washington National Park.  Visit Gadino Vineyards and Barrel Oak Winery.  Bring a picnic lunch or you can buy cheese and sausage at the winery.  Good idea to bring a small cooler with soft drinks/water.   In order to make the winery visits go smoothly, please make your reservations by checking the RSVP instructions on the events page at   Please reply by 17 August.  POC is Jim Smith.
