Update on the PUB 2017 Northern Tour
« on: June 26, 2017, 18:24:17 »
The Northern Tour will depart from the Charlottesville - Crozet area on Monday September 18, heading north enjoying the vistas of Skyline Drive.  Following a quick lunch stop in the Front Royal VA area we will proceed further north to Hagerstown VA for an 8 PM dinner at Schula's Grill and Crab, spending the night at the Hampton Inn.  Following breakfast on Tuesday, departure for points north and west, the shorter drive to the DC area, or wherever.

On Monday afternoon, an optional visit to Andy Paza's restoration shop in Williamsport MD has been arranged. 

Participation in the tour is flexible.  All PUB attendees are welcome to join the drive.  Some may want to break off for home earlier, for instance after lunch in Front Royal.  Your $35 ticket gets you dinner and maybe a drink at Schula's! 

A block of rooms (each with two queen beds) has been reserved at the Hampton Inn at a rate of $109 including wireless and a hot breakfast.  If you wish to spend the night there, please contact the hotel directly at 301.739.6100 and mention that you are with the PUB17 group.
