August 11, 2007 Barns, Market Towns, Wine Summer Tour
Gettysburg, PABarn (covered), Market Towns, and Wine Summer Tour
SPECIAL NOTE: Restaurant capability has been exceeded. Our group will split and have lunch at both the Hickory Bridge Farm and the Fairfield Inn. Reservations received after July 12, 2007 will likely have lunch at the Fairfield Inn. The route has not changed. These places are 4 minutes apart. The cost is still $10 per member. We will rejoin after lunch and continue our trip. The winery will have a reserved area for all our cars. All reservations placed between July 13 and July 30 will get a response from the Summer Tourmeister on July 31.
The Summer Tour on August 11 has restructured arrangements and has room for 10-14 more cars. Anyone wanting to join must contact Bob Stern at 410-602-0175. Complete the form on the web site and call!!!
Start Time: 9:30 to 10:15 AM.
Starting from: Northwest BMW, Owings Mills, Maryland
This year, we have really found a great day of events to get us out of the “Dog Days of Summer”.
The tour will start with Bagel, Buns, Coffee, and BMWs at the newly remodeled Northwest BMW dealership in Owings Mills, Maryland. Morning snacks are hosted by Josh Dreiband, Brian Cunningham, and the great team at NW BMW. Several members of the NW BMW team will join us for the tour (they get out of cleaning up after we leave).
After a short drivers’ meeting, we will depart around 10:30 AM for a tour through Baltimore and Carroll counties in Maryland and end up in the Dutch Country of Pennsylvania, very close to Gettysburg. Our route will take us through several small towns because of the increasing population in this area. Don’t worry; there will be a few roads suitable for “all types” of BMW driving. We will likely miss most of the summer traffic congestion of Gettysburg
Lunch of chicken, ribs, and ham will be farm style at the Hickory Bridge Farm around 1:00 PM. Before or after lunch, there is a farm museum and store on site to visit. After lunch, we will visit the Adams County Winery for music and wine (would I let you down?). The lunch site is also within a short distance of the Gettysburg Battlefields, Gettysburg Outlet Stores, and several local produce stands. Those of you who are not interested in wine will have plenty of other things to do.
This will be a great trip to include some of the younger, non-BMW drivers, in our group. Kids and Grandkids will have plenty to entertain them. We will have our, almost 11 year’s old, grandson with us. Hickory Bridge will even set up a separate kids table if requested.
All reservations and payments must be made before August 3, 2007. Cost to you for lunch is $10.00 per adult and $7 for children under 7 years old. Please pay by check,. The address to send it to will be in your confirmation email when you register for the trip. Please check our website for further details and route instructions, which will be posted once they become available.
