A one or two day event – your choice
Saturday, August 9, 2008
Start – Urbana, MD
Time: 9:00 AM
Time for a summer tour through the hills and valleys of Maryland and Pennsylvania to end with a gourmet box lunch and fantastic wines – this while sitting under a covered pavilion in the middle of fields of grape vines. Lunch at the vineyard will be wraps, salads, cheeses, deserts, and include a wine tasting and one glass of your favorite wine. Your cost is $10 a person. For those who only want to tour one day – it is less than 3 _ hour highways run from the vineyard to Vienna, VA.
If you want to overnight in the Juniata River Valley, arrangements are being made for group hotel rates, a great dinner, and a train ride on Sunday, before going home. The Saturday evening and Sunday events cannot be subsidized by the NCC BMW CCA tourmeister’s budget.
