June 10 Tour from Stevensville to Easton, MD
CHESAPEAKE BAY TOUR
FROM STEVENSVILLE TO EASTON, MD
PCA-CHS 2017 Tour Event No. 4
June 10, Saturday
The Chesapeake Bay Tour will take place after the Chesapeake Region’s “New Member Party” to be hosted and sponsored by Porsche of Annapolis. We will assemble in and begin from the Stevensville Park & Ride Lot east of the Bay Bridge. Our drive will take us into some interesting backroads that few visitors to the Eastern Shore ever see, much less drive on. Our destination is CPR Classic East’s restoration shop in Easton.
CPR Classic East specializes in enhancing or giving new life to vintage Porsches. Guided tours by shop owner Bruce Wakefield and his staff will be provided to PCA members from the Chesapeake Region, as well as from the Potomac, Delaware and Central Pennsylvania regions.
NEW MEMBER PARTY
Driving tour participants may go straight to the meeting place in Stevensville by 11:30 a.m. or begin their morning by first attending the “New Member Party,” to which new and veteran members are invited. The party, to be held at Porsche of Annapolis, will start at 9:00 a.m. at 20 Hudson St., Annapolis, MD 21401. Coffee and pastries will be served. Then representatives of the various PCA-CHS committees will describe the many activities available for the enjoyment of all members. Goody bags will be distributed to new members, and all attendees will get a chance to win wonderful door prizes.
TOUR’S MEETING PLACE
After the party concludes at 11:00 a.m., new members will have a chance to immediately take part in a driving tour, together with veteran members.
Those coming from the party should immediately drive east on US-301/US-50 via the Bay Bridge and take exit 37. Those not attending the party may go straight to the meeting place by taking Exit 37, then making a right turn (from the west) onto Romancoke Rd/MD-8 S, and subsequently making a left turn onto Thompson Creek Rd. The Stevensville Park & Ride Lot is at 111 Thompson Creek Rd., Stevensville, MD 21666. The assembly time is 11:30 a.m.
A drivers’ meeting will be held at 11:45 a.m. After the waiver forms are signed and the car ID tags are handed out, we will depart as a caravan by noon.
Our drive through the highways and backroads of the Eastern Shore will take us to CPR Classic East at 9329 Ocean Gateway, Easton, MD 21601, where a “Porsche-O-Rama” will be held. We will arrive there by around 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be available from a food truck onsite.
Several guided tours of the restoration shop will be available every 20 minutes. Each could last 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the questions asked by the attendees.
After the shop tours, attendees may opt to dine at one of the nearby restaurants, such as Applebee’s, Olive Garden, Panera Bread and Chipotle. Other dining options abound in Easton’s charming downtown.
After visiting the CPR Classic East shop and eating lunch, driving tour participants may proceed to other nearby destinations on their own, such as the art galleries in Easton’s historic downtown or the antique shops and the newly opened Classic Motor Museum in St. Michaels.
