FALL COLORS RUN 2011 IS ON!! October 28-30
Hey Gang, date has been set!!!
Routes are set pending lunch stop scheduling. Still waiting to hear back from the two restaurants.
Once again we'll be at the Highland Inn with overflow rooms down the street at the Montvalee Motel.
A little "cat out of the bag" news, We will have lunch once again at C.J. Maggies in Elkins WV. That place was so good last year we had to go back.
The routes are going to be every bit as good as last years and they route 678 out of McDowell, VA!
Stay tuned here as news develops this post will be updated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!UPDATE
All updates will be done under the ORANGE UPDATE
October 28-30, 2011.
Once again we'll be back at historic Highand Inn in Monterey, VA.
Friday night we'll be gathered on the porch and get reacquainted and share some stories. Barring and traffic snafus on I-64! Saturday we'll hit the road early and have a really neat lunch stop and of course, take several stops for pics along the way. Then we'll get back to the Inn for our traditional dinner. Hopefully, Chef Lisa can round up some trout again.
When Sunday dawns it's more motoring, with naturally, more photo ops and another real neat lunch spot.
Make sure to join us for this years event.
You can make your own reservations by calling the Inn at 1-888-466-4682 and make your reservations for October 28-30. Make sure to tell them you're with the MINI/Fall Colors Run or they won't let you reserve a room!
The Inn's website is http://www.highland-inn.com/index.html#TitlePageSUNDAY
The Swinging Bridge Restaurant in beautiful downtown Paint Bank, VA will be our destination for our early afternoon lunch stop. It's a pretty unique eatery with an actual swinging bridge INSIDE the restaurant. Here's their website: http://www.theswingingbridge.com/
They unfortunately, don't take reservations, so to pass the time there is also the adjacent Paint Bank General Store to pass the time away in. Here's their site: http://www.paintbankgeneralstore.com
Lunch will probably happen around 2PM, so make sure to get breakfast at the Inn or at Bright's across the street in Monterey before the day gets started.
