1. Thursday evening's dinner
gathering takes place not at Applebee's, but at the Main Street
Mill, 500 East Main St., Front Royal -- close to the Quality
Inn. The first 36 people who confirm they'll attend, will be
seated in our private room; others may sit in the main dining
room. Start time is 6:00 PM.
2. Two antique auto events take
place in the area, on Friday and Saturday: the Vair
Fair (for Corvairs) in nearby Winchester, and the Mid-Atlantic
Pre-War Swap Meet in Luray.
3. The bad-weather alternative
for the Friday social gathering and potluck (usually held at
the 4H Center) will be the banquet room of the Quality Inn in
Front Royal (the host hotel).
4. SATURDAY SCHEDULE CHANGE:
The social hou begins at 4:30PM. Dinner begins at 5:30PM. The
Annual Business Meeting of the Eastern Region will be held at
the end of the dinner, approximately 7PM.
5. Our Saturday driving tour
is scheduled to make stops at a private non-Hudson car collection,
the Virginia State Arboretum, the restored mill at Millwood,
the town of Middleburg, the restored mill at Aldie, and the car
collection at the mountaintop home of an H-E-T member, before
arriving at the Bluemont fire hall where we'll have a social
hour followed by dinner, and the Eastern Region Business Meeting.
Each driver will receive printed directions, and will be able
to travel at his/her own speed, and choose to see any or all
of the stops. We'll travel over scenic country roads. Alternatively,
attendees may visit the Virginia
Wine & Craft Festival in Front Royal for all or part
of the day.
