Hadleys first fun run Hadley's First Fun Run, May 23, 2021
by John Odden,

Our tour leads, Harold and Amber Singh, dedicated this drive to their daughter, Hadley.



Our drive began in Goochland Courthouse and traveled into Louisa, Hanover, Goochland, Henrico, Chesterfield and Powhatan Counties. We even dipped into the City of Richmond when we crossed the James River on the Huguenot Bridge. The roads and the sites were spectacular. Many local members commented that they had never experienced a number of the roads we traveled on. Points of interest were noted on this drive as there is so much history surrounding the Richmond area.

We had 34 cars participating which were divided into six groups. Our destination was Fine Creek Brewing Company in Powhatan. We had several members and spouses who were not on the drive join us at Fine Creek Brewing for a total of 60 people. Those that took the time to walk the grounds of Fine Creek saw the remains of the original water driven grist mill and the breathtaking stream flowing over solid rock. The adjacent Fine Creek Mill is a wedding venue. Speaking to one of the owners, they have bookings two years out.

The food Fine Creek served and the beer they brewed were both outstanding. We had a memorable drive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with fellow members we have not seen due to the pandemic.

Many thanks to the Singh’s for their efforts putting together this very enjoyable drive and social gathering.

Bald top drive Bald Top Brewery Spring Drive, April 25 2021
by John Odden, Photography by Tim Foster

We had an outstanding turnout for our first drive of the year with 29 cars and 47 registered attendees. We had two members of Potomac Region join us at the brewery and one local Porsche owner who heard about our event. This provided a grand total of 50 in attendance at Bald Top. Terence Banks was the drive leader for this event. Terence was raised in Madison County and now lives in Greene County. He has an intimate knowledge of the great roads Madison and Greene County have to offer along with northern Albemarle.

Our mid-point stop on our driving tour was at Maybelle's Market. Dan Graff led an initial group to provide logistics and parking guidance to the next five car groups arriving at Maybelle's. Our mid-point stop has a maximum capacity of 31 cars. Dan's Team provided what appeared to be a choreographed positioning of our 29 cars with creative positioning amongst the other patrons at Maybelle's. Anyone driving by would have been amazed at a country market with nothing but Porsches in the parking lot. If you have never stopped at Maybelle's, you have missed something special. Our eastern vice president, Charlie Agee, during a pre-drive of the route, had one of the best sandwiches he has ever experienced at Maybelle's.

Leaving Maybelle's, our drive headed north crossing Rt. 33 into Standardsville and then to Bald Top Brewery in Madison County. The brewery owner, Dave Fulton, was very accommodating by having the entrance road re-graded before our drive. I only know of one car that had the front splitter make contact coming in; a brand new beautiful black Cayman GT4. Fortunately there was no damage to the splitter.

Bald Top had outdoor tables and a tent area which accommodated our group perfectly. We had several members from Potomac and First Settlers Region join us for our drive. The pizza was very good and the beer was most enjoyable.

The weather turned out to be perfect and the roads were terrific. Many thanks to Terence for heading up this wonderful drive.
