On a Saturday, and in a new location! Please wear a hat. Anything old, silly, homemade or even borrowed to brighten up January. It is also requested that everyone bring a nice door prize for the raffle.

Dinner will be followed by the installation of officers and a brief update of activities at the national AACA level.

The evening will be capped by a performance by the Rebel Heart Irish Dancers which, it is anticipated, could be very well worth the price of admission alone! If that turns out to be the case, you are then getting your delicious meal free! Come and see for yourself.

As always, we want to see new faces and old friends on our tour.  And please drag out the antique cars; that’s what we do and it’s what gets other people excited about our hobby.  If you don’t have a road worthy car yet, that’s OK too.  We want everyone to come join in the fun.

13 – 14— The Fall tour this year will be an overnighter.

It takes place in the Bedford area and starts on Thursday October 13th.  It is limited to thirty cars.  We need your registration IN OUR HANDS by September 15th.  We blocked thirty rooms at the Quality Inn in Bedford at $105.00 including all taxes and breakfast on Friday morning.  Additional charge of $10.00 would apply for each person over two per room.  YOUR ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN RESERVATIONS.  These must be made prior to September 30th.  All meals are paid “on your own”.  A list of restaurants will be available.

Travel will be on the turnpike and PA 30.  We ran the turnpike at sixty mph and no one ran over us.  There are hills on Route 30 so have your vehicle in road-worthy condition.

Sights for enjoyment will include museums, shopping (wonderful candy/popcorn to antiques), road trip with various points of interest, and keep your finders crossed, a private car collection (the owner rarely shares his collection…and we have not received a NO…we are hoping for a YES).  Walking will be required and some places the “buddy system” might be required when traveling by car because of limited parking.

This is a beautiful area, especially during this season.  Even the scenery along the turnpike is awesome.  The cost to register will be minimal, as lodging and meals are not an “up-front” cost.  Further details will be in the July/August newsletter.  Mark your calendar now.
