Invitation: 3 day Ferrari friends event to Maryhill Loops Road in the Columbia Gorge

July 23-25th, 2010

I wanted to invite you on a private 3 day driving trip to the Gorge over July 23-25th that is now 65% full towards selling out. Note: This is not an FCA trip and the FCA is not associated with this in any way as I'm running this on my own but it will have many of the same Ferrari faces.

Please consider joining us...while there is still space.
We depart Friday from Seattle, drive down the back roads E of Mt St. Helens, then arrive to meet our Oregon friends for a wine reception party before a provided shuttle to down town dinner. Saturday morning we drive the MaryHill Loops Road followed by lunch, a countryside drive to Mt Hood and a Saturday night group dinner party.
Note: Maryhill Loops Road is a very dangerous and technial private road tthat is a closed route with no emergency facilities. Each particpant must realize they are driving it at their own risk prior to registering.

To sign up for this event:

1) Make your reservations for two nights, July 23-25 by calling them at:
Celilo Inn 541.769-0001
and be sure to mention the Ferrari Group to gain access to our block of rooms.
Rates start at $129.00 per night plus tax.

2) Notify me that you have made reservations, so I can bill you for event fees. The cost is $50 per person due ($65 after June 30) for:
- Friday night wine reception party
- Friday evening shuttle to dining downtown
- Saturday drive at Maryhill Loops Road
- Saturday evening shuttle to dining downtown
- Saturday Night group dinner

3) Once paid, I'll email you the meeting place and time.

Please consider attending!

Sincerely,

Scott

Route down through the mountains was exclaimed by many as the most fun road they've been on - I think it was the great group myself!

The weather was perfect and people were commenting on how they had never been on such fun back roads!
The Blue Dino had broken down from electrical gremlins then after 30 mins it just started and off we are

Many long time Washington State residents commented that they had never been on these back roads and were loving it!

The next morning I had reserved Maryhills Loop for our private drive - the oldest paved road in WA State and a LONG line of cars was headed there!
