Aiken Fall Steeplechase

Saturday, Oct 27, 2018
8:30 amto5:00 pm

Tom Varallo has offered the Club the use of his rail side spot for this year’s Aiken Fall Steeplechase. He wants you to go and have a good time, so, if you have no other plans for Saturday, October 27th, you would be quite literally foolish not to take advantage of this offer.

Space #262 is on the Outside Rail (see map) and will accommodate only one vehicle and canopy that will be taken up by the Mason’s pick-up truck and awning. We’ll have a big cooler filled with ice and grill and such, so just bring your fabulous selves and something to cook or nosh on during the day, plus whatever you would like to drink.

You can park for free in the Bogardus’s driveway (or on the street in front of the house) at 778 Boardman Rd. It is an easy mile from there to the event or you can ride in the back of the pickup like a day laborer if you get to the house before 8:30 AM.

Tail of the Dragon Trip

Friday, Nov 2, 2018 8:00 amtoSunday, Nov 4, 2018 7:30 am

The “event” hotel is the Quality Inn & Suites in Robbinsville, NC. This used to be the Microtel, but has changed chains, so I’m hoping that they refurbished the place. The rooms are small and it is kind of pricey for what you get, but it is luxurious compared some of the other options in town. $88+tax for the no-refundable rate, $108 if want the possibility to cancel by Thursday the 1st. You are responsible for making your own reservations.

The following is a rough draft of an itinerary for the weekend. The only dates and times that are locked in are our Friday morning’s departure from the Greg’s Gas+ and Brian and Donna’s Sunday morning departure to home.
