Bridges, Tunnels & Ferries Run
When: Saturday, March 23, 2019
Meeting at: Buc-ee’s – Baytown
4080 East Freeway (I-10E)
Time: 9:00 AM, Wheels Turning at 9:30 AM
Please RSVP for this event. We are expecting a large turn out and we need to let the restaurant know how many to expect.
Come join us as we resurrect an old favorite run. We will be starting from the East side this time at Buc-ee’s Baytown. This will be a relatively short run through a tunnel, over a bridge with one pit stop, and winding up at the Monument Inn at the Lynchburg Ferry crossing in Deer Park. This will be a great slow speed run that you can bring along a new inexperienced driver and let them enjoy themselves immensely. The Monument Inn is very busy so we will be arriving around 11 AM shortly after they open to beat the crowds. Eat a light breakfast and plan for an early full hardy lunch of seafood and other specialties while watching the traffic on the Houston Ship Channel and the San Jacinto River. The Monument Inn is famous for the cinnamon rolls served on every table so plan on leaving room for that treat. On this run, we will cover about 85 miles and it will last about 3 hours including lunch. There will be plenty of time afterwards to visit the Battleship Texas or the Texas Independence Monument and museum after lunch on your own if you desire. Pencil in the date now. Please RSVP for this event. We are expecting a large turn out and we need to let the restaurant know how many to expect. Bring a hand-held walkie talkie or a CB if you have one. It is always fun so come on out and enjoy yourself with a fine group of fellow Corvette enthusiasts.
