OK, all -- Time for me and Miriam to try again.

How about Saturday, August 12, 2006 - Baltimore to the Brandywine Valley area?

Not Longwood Gardens - that's for someone else...

I'm thinking lunch, visit a working mushroom farm for a tour, and then end at Va La Winery http://www.valavineyards.com/.
Check their web site...it's great.

NOTHING firm yet - email me or post any suggestions. This one may require a deposit....

1. Have been to Chaddsford Winery - too commercial for me.

2. Did not think visitng many vineyards would be realistic, (or safe?).

3. Not sure what I did wrong on the first link. If this doesn't work...Do a Google for Va La Vineyards Pennsylvania.

4. Everyone please note - shooting for AUGUST 12 NOT 5.

There are actually 5 "family run" wineries in the area. Miriam and I tried three this Saturday....THAT'S WHY I decided against a "wine tour". We think lunch, mushroom farm and then end at a winery will work best....I'll have a list of other wineries if anyone wants more...this is what we started with...

OK all, time to start getting in line.

Plans are to depart from the Owings Mills area of Baltimore County, MD...travel through Baltimore and Harford counties and into the Brandywine Valley area of Pennsylvania. We'll do lunch - tour a mushroom factory - visit a small family winery...no car show this time.

I'll post a formal data announcement in a few days....

Please drop me an email - MirNBob2@<hidden> (or here) and let me know if you plan on joining us...Last summer we had 24 cars!!!

All - we are only 2 months away from AUG 12. I need to get an idea if we have enough people to justify the Mushroom Factory tour. PLEASE reply here or email me if you are planning to join us. The $3 deposit would also be appreciated.

Thanks.

Please contact me as soon as possible, and send your $3.

Almost....

I'm back from vacation and will pick up all the checks that have been sent on Monday. That being said...we only have 22 cars so far.

That means that many, many club members are going to miss a great Saturday trip.

So...how about some last minute decisions??????

Special email was posted today to all who are on my list for the August 12 Tour.

If you got this mail - PLEASE see the part about special recipe ingredients. Please let me know.

And - if you are wondering what I am talking about - I guess you did not get the email and are not joining us for a great day....

There is still time, and room for more...let me know.

Excellent tour, thank you.
A mushroom farm was nothing what I expected.
Nothing like what Dirty Jobs portrayed.
Lunch was excellent too. Chimay. :icon_drun :)

We had a great time yesterday. Nice meeting everybody! The mushroom farm was interesting, the wines were good, and the roads were a lot of fun.

See you all again soon.
