- Thursday early bird will include a trip to the Keystone Car and Truck museum in Petersburg Va. where a mid 20’s Pierce Arrow Fire Truck resides, before our traditional ‘Meet and Greet’ reception in the evening.
- Friday, we explore Jamestown where in 1607 the first settlers arrived from Europe and Yorktown, the location of the epic battle in 1781 that paved the way for US peace talks with the British. In one day, we can see the beginning and ending of colonial rule on the eastern seaboard.
- Saturday, we take a bus to the Newport Mariners’ Museum to have a docent presented, behind the scenes look at the actual salvaged wreck of the USS Monitor, retrieved from the sea bed off North Carolina 140+ years after sinking in a storm. The museum is adjacent to, and addresses in depth, the battle of Hampton Roads between iron clad CSS Virginia and USS Monitor in March 1862. Lunch is included at the museum. We will also try to fit in another car collection before the bus takes us back.
- Sunday is our board meeting and evening dinner before adjourning.
- Those not participating in the meeting can visit Williamsburg historical sites or shop in the nearby ‘Merchant Square’
- On all days, participants can opt out of planned tours and visit the onsite restaurants and amenities that include a first-class gym, pool and SPA, or go downtown for the excellent attractions and shopping.
Free shuttle service is provided from the hotel to all of Williamsburg sites.
Meet details will be diverse and appeal to both men and ladies.
