It is “Dutch Treat” (separate checks) and you are able to order from the menu. RSVP to Brad if possible. To beat the rush, please arrive between 8AM and 8:30AM … we will have reserved seating for those coming early.
After Breakfast, plan to spend some time walking to see the “boiling spring”, feed the ducks, and other points of interest near the restaurant.

ROAD TOUR 
after breakfast, Brad will lead the group on a tour through the area, with a few leisurely stops, and (weather permitting) some spectacular views.  Several stops are scheduled, then we can tour back to the fairgrounds as a group, or on your own.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON
The club tent will be available for relaxing and fellowship.
The Winners Circle Awards will be presented Sunday. One car is chosen from each country of manufacture … .for a special award and a very special “Winners Circle jacket”. A Citroën HAS been the winner of this award in the past!!! I expect that Citroëns have the best chance of that each year!!!
Grab a sandwich and a soda, and reflect on the weekend, while waiting for the awards presentation.
