9 cars - 18 people? Okay, who took the picture?
Well the club’s first tour of the year got started without any problems. We had nine cars start: seven MGs, one Jeep Cherokee and one Porsche. One of the MGs (a’65 B with top down) was a guest from Wisconsin; Bob Laewenstein came down from Williams Bay to run with us up to Yerkes Observatory where we had a tour. (Thank you, Bob for taking the time to give us a tour of the facility). I think we all learned something there and enjoyed it. As we started to leave the observatory, the rain started and ran with us for the rest of the day. On we went into Lake Geneva for lunch where we all gathered at “Popeyes” for a good lunch and a warm up stop. Had lost the Porsche team somewhere, I hope they made it back home okay!
After lunch, the tour ran back to Crystal Lake and some headed back on their own, others teamed up and ran back to the starting point via the tour route. The weather was not the best for this day of touring, but that is something that cannot be controlled. I think the tour went well from my point of view and I hope the others had a good time too.
