Greetings Fellow CJCC Members,
On Saturday, October 19, Mike and Kathy Woskey led the Covered Bridge Tour. Suffice to say that in all aspects it was a wonderful day out in our Corvettes.
Although the weather was somewhat overcast and cool we had 18 Corvettes and 34 participants. A large group met for breakfast at the Pantagis Diner in Somerville and then cruised to the PA Washington Crossing State Park. Another group of 5 cars met at Billy’s (formerly Stewart’s) in Flemington and cruised to the park and a couple of others went to the park independently. The park provided a good and large staging area for the cruise.
A few of our stalwarts put their convertible tops down and donned their jackets (and blankets). Mike held the drivers meeting and the group was split into three parts with Mike, Dan C. and Al T. as leaders. We toured through scenic Bucks County and crossed four bridges. We were able to stay together for the most part and our radios worked very well even with this many cars. Some of the passengers took pictures so check out our web site shortly for them. We had to eliminate one of the bridges due to time constraints. At one of the bridges we encountered a group of Shelby Cobras who were part of Mike’s Cobra club. We also saw a couple of motorcycle groups touring as well. It was fun waving back to the occasional bystanders who waved at our line of beautiful Corvettes. We stopped at the Sand Castle Winery and had a very enjoyable tour and a talk on wine making which everyone enjoyed. Then we had a fun wine tasting and then an opportunity to take in the scenery, have some photo ops, buy some wine and just chat.
We then continued on heading South on PA Route 32 and crossed over to Stockton, NJ and then on down NJ Route 29 to Lambertville and the Lambertville Station Restaurant for the late lunch/early dinner. We had a private area of four tables of 8 or so in the third floor and a great meal of chicken, salmon or steak complete with salad and dessert. There was a lot of great conversation, a lot of laughs and a lot of discussion about Corvettes.
Upon leaving, some decided to tour New Hope and Lambertville and others mini-cruised or went home individually.
Thanks to Mike for putting together and leading a terrific day in the country.
