This year’s Spring Tour is to the Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort in Flintstone, MD from June 4-6, 2010. The Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort is AAA Four Diamond award winning resort which sits in a beautiful forested area on a 243-acre lake at the foothills of Rocky Gap State Park, in the heart of historic Cumberland Valley. Register today! We have limited space available for this tour!



I have decided to make it an overnight tour with an optional second night. Based on feedback received during the Winter Tour and Pie Run, I have decided to add an optional second night to allow people additional time to enjoy the spa, a round of golf, and other activities after the long, fun drive up. With the additional night, you can relax on Friday afternoon and enjoy the resort on Saturday.



Those of us leaving on Friday, the 4th, will depart from Bob Evans Restaurant in Chantilly, VA at 8 a.m. Those of us leaving on Saturday, the 5th, will depart the same Bob Evans Restaurant at 8 a.m. Breakfast will be at your expense if you choose to eat at the restaurant. Someone will be appointed to handle the drivers’ meeting, answer questions, and hand out extra directions on Saturday. We will stop for lunch on the way to the resort. The lunch spot will be the same for the Saturday group as well. On Saturday evening, we will have a dinner banquet at the resort.

After May 7, 2010, reservations or changes to existing reservations will be accepted based upon space and rate availability. I will try to make reserve another block of rooms at this rate when we fill this room block. I cannot guarantee that the second block will have the same rate. So don't wait until the last minute!!!



All reservations must be accompanied by a first night room deposit or guaranteed with a credit card. The Resort will not hold any reservation unless secured by a credit card. In the event a guest wishes to cancel a reservation, the deposit is refundable if notice is received before three (3) days prior to the day of arrival and a cancellation number is obtained.

Yes it will be June 4-6. Those people who will leave on Friday will follow the tour route. For the people leaving on Saturday, June 5th will meet up at the same spot as the Friday crew and follow the route. I will have a person selected to coordinate everyone leaving and meeting for lunch and arriving at the resort.
The reason for the adding the extra day is because Friday will allow for driving and getting to the resort to relax and Saturday will allow for people to enjoy a day of golfing and spa treatments.
Friday is an optional night. I have reserved rooms for Friday for two nights and Saturday check-in for one night.

I'm sorry to be dense, but will there not be an organized drive on Saturday for people who can't take Friday off for this? Do you have a start time for the drive on Friday?

I had a great time this past weekend at the tour. I'm glad we left Friday and spent the extra day at the resort since there was so much to do there. The roads were a BLAST to drive too!!!

Anyone have any feedback?

Feedback? Sure. As always, it's amazing that some club members are selfless enough to put so much time and effort into helping the rest of us have a good time. Thanks!! Our Saturday route instructions were spot-on. Much appreciated. I think the resort tried to be accomodating and helpful (parking lot reserved, reasonable drink prices, tasty food). Staying at a place with so much to do after an early arrival = really nice. And the window view out over the lake = just great! Successful tour in my book.

I had a great time! My navigator has decided to become a club member even though she does not (yet) own a Bimmer - she had a great time, too. The roads after lunch were *amazing*, and the resort was very nice. I'm looking forward to the fall tour :)

UMMM, not sure if you two received the memo, but there is this season in between spring and fall known as.....SUMMER!!! Hence that tour is called the Summer Tour. SMH
