The Texas Chapter of the VCOA will be having a meet May 1 at Cedar Hill State Park, and we'll be joined by some representatives of Volvo Cars of North America. VCNA wants to bring some new models out and give our members a chance to drive them. We'll have a short cruise route to the park (around 30-minute drive) where we will then have a cook out, car show and time to drive some new Volvos. This is the first time VCNA has done this in Texas, and we are looking to have a good turnout to establish a relationship so we can do more things together in the future.
We have a pavilion with grill and bathrooms and our over private parking area on the top of a nice little hill that has trees for some shade and some lake views. We do have a reservation for this site. We have the spot from 10 a.m.- 10 p.m.
We'll meet at the Sonic at I20 and Great Southwest Pkwy at 9:30 a.m. for a quick breakfast and time to group up. We'll roll out at 10 a.m. for the park. It will be around a 15-mile cruise around Joe Pool Lake that will take roughly 30 minutes.
Once at the park (10:30 a.m.) we will have our usual people's choice show., interact with the VCNA folks and drive some new Volvos.
Lunch will be our usual burgers and dogs (with all the fixings), and will be served starting at noon. Lunch is provided by VCNA. You will need $5 to get into the park.
After lunch, people's choice ballots will be totaled and we will give out awards and do some door prizes. We should wrap it up around 3-4 p.m.
If there is interest, we will go as a group to the Bishop Arts district near downtown Dallas for group dinner.
