Walt Spak American Lancia Club Fall Reunion
Over the last several years, the club has gotten away from the Reunion Picnic that was traditionally held at the Giglio’s house in Brewster, New York. We have always enjoyed good food but once recently, we didn’t even include the great drives we had enjoyed. There is something intrinsically wrong there. Lancia’s are made to be driven!
We decided to correct this omission this year. We have planned an event centered in Northern Virginia and Maryland where there are a wonderful network or gorgeous winding two-lanes through many villages, most offering great food.
We will base the event at a very nice Hampton Inn in suburban Frederick, Maryland where we have reserved a bunch of rooms. There is very nice food and a rather quaint “Tiki” style bar where one can eat and do what one does best in a bar!
We will gather there at six o’clock Friday evening, check in and share wine and cheese. Then we will disperse for dinner.
At nine o’clock Saturday morning, we will meet in the parking lot, receive a box lunch of our preference and hit the road! We will be released at one-minute intervals (just like the Mille Miglia) and follow printed instructions through wonderful countryside till lunch at a gorgeous park in Maryland. It is a mountain steeped in history. After lunch, it is “on the road again” back into Virginia.
Mid-afternoon will find us at Tom Stewart’s beautiful farm in Waterford, Virginia. We will arrange all the attending Lancia’s on the lawn for photo opportunities and arrange ourselves in folding chairs and picnic blankets for a couple of restful hours with snacks.
Then off to the hotel for mumming up and dinner on our own at the hotel or any of the many nearby restaurants.
Sunday morning we will have breakfast together and have an informal concours d’elegance in the parking lot.
Please register with Michael Kristick at 717-434-2507 and send him a check for $60 per person to cover fees and a very nice surprise to everyone from Tom Stewart. Michael’s new address is 225 Mocking Bird Rd, Wellsville, PA 17365
Make your hotel reservation for the Hampton Inn at 301-698-2500 or Frederick.hamptioninn.com. Mention the American Lancia Club, as we have reserved a block of rooms in our name.
This should be fun. Lots of gorgeous roads, photo opportunities, good food and great Lancia boffins to gossip with!
