We are doing the tour again!
Wine lovers! Gearheads! Nostalgics! Do you like vintage wooden boats, vintage unlimited hydroplanes, and Chelan area wines? How about staying at a premium Chelan waterfront resort for a bargain price? This is the PSMC event for you.
Join us for a fun three-day weekend tour as we venture off to Lake Chelan for the Mahogany & Merlot festival held in Chelan. We will be staying at Campbell’s Waterfront Resort, walking distance to the festival.
The festival features wine of coarse, but also many vintage wooden pleasure craft on display, some offering rides. The big attraction though is the unlimited hydroplanes from the Unlimited Hydroplane Museum. Remember Miss Bardahl, Thriftway, Oh Boy! O’Berto, Hawaii Kai? Experience the roar of these piston-engine boats as they run around the lake coarse. We are also planning a wine tour of the many wineries in the area.
We will be meeting at 10 a.m., at the Chevron station located at the east end of Monroe on Hwy 2. As a reminder, get your reservation in to Campbell’s Resort as soon as possible.
Also new this year; the festival is adding a vintage car display to an already great event. Hydroplanes, wine tour, vintages cars! It doesn’t get any better than this. Get your RSVP in today!
We'll plan a lunch stop on the way to Chelan, and include tours of a couple of wineries while en-route to Campbell’s resort. Saturday is festival day and wine tour day; you may do both. Sunday, we make our way back west, but if you have not had enough fun, we will be stopping in Leavenworth taking in a little Octoberfest with a brat & beer.
As a bonus, there is a possibility our club will be part of the festival where we can display our Miatas as a club.
Sound like fun? Here is what you need to do; RSVP for the event then call Campbell’s Resort 800-553-8225 or 509-682-2177 to reserve your room for Oct. 4th and 5th. Mention “Mahogany & Merlot” to get the discount. Don’t wait.
Campbell’s has several rooms blocked for this event, but is offered to all festival participants (not just us) so it will fill up soon.
Questions, please contact Paul Jaeger, Houghtons or Ohlsens by email through the name link on top of the page.
This will be a most memorable trip!
