September 2 Tour #8
PCA-CHS 2017 Tour No. 8, Sept. 2, Saturday
This 69-mile drive will take us on scenic back roads and old-fashioned highways in Baltimore, Carroll and Frederick counties as we head to Shepherdstown, West Virginia. After about two hours on the road, we will arrive at the Bavarian Inn, the new venue of PCA Potomac’s annual “Gathering of the Faithful.” This event is a big Porsche car show and social, like a cars & coffee.
We will gather at 7:30 AM at the parking lot behind Kecco’s Woodfire Kitchen, 114 Westminster Pike, Reisterstown, MD 21136. Note that the restaurant does not open until 11:00 AM, so we will not be able to use its restrooms. Our drivers’ meeting will begin at 7:45 AM, and we will depart by 8:00 AM.
Restroom visits before 7:30 AM could be made nearby at a Food Lion supermarket, a Dunkin’ Donuts shop, a Shell gas station and a Royal Farms gas station. We will have one pit stop during our drive.
