Spring Chicken Rally/Tour
May 18, 2014
Jana and I are in the early stages of planning the Spring Chicken Rally/Tour for this year and hope that you can attend. Please save the date of Sunday, May 18.
We will begin the driver's meeting at 10:15 in the shopping mall in Deer Park, on the northwest corner of Route 12, Rand Road and Deer Park Blvd by the Starbucks parking area. Same place as last year.
We will have a different drive that ends at our house after about an hour where we will have a chicken lunch. The cost is $7 per person to help defray the cost. We just hope that we are blessed with the good weather that we had last year and not a continuation of this winter weather.
Spring Tour 2014
South Beloit, IL
May 30-31, June 1, 2014
The dates are different than in the past. We are returning to the South Beloit area now, after Memorial Day, so that we can visit and explore the Historic Auto Attractions Museum. It has a variety of interesting exhibits including Legends of Racing, Famous Cars and Stars, Abraham Lincoln, Day in Dallas, TVland, and NASA. (Check it out: historicautoattractions.com)
Plan to arrive sometime Friday afternoon. Dinner that night will be at the Butterfly Club, an authentic Wisconsin supper club. Enjoy the Friday night fish fry. Saturday morning we will visit the Museum. Saturday afternoon plans are in the works. It could be a visit to a local MG owner’s garage or watching go-kart racing at Blackhawk Farms Raceway. Saturday dinner will be at another supper club. If you are still hungry, on your way home, you could stop in Hebron and have brunch at Crandall’s. They have great broasted chicken and chicken livers.
We are staying at the Best Western in South Beloit. Our special rate is $69.00 plus tax. Make your own reservations at 815-389-4211. The release date is April 30th.
A caravan is planned for Friday. Let me know if you are interested.
