READ EVERYTHING BEFORE Sending an Event
If you do not follow the rules your event will NOT be posted in the calendar. The Car Club Council of Central Virginia posts events FREE of charge. We ask that you follow the rules so we are not embarrassed by misspelled words and grammar errors in order that the calendar is updated properly and promptly. The calendar gets a lot of traffic.
