WELCOME! To the 2019 Eastern Steam Car Tour. We have sent out or preliminary mailing and everyone should see it in their snail mail shortly! If you do not receive it with in 10 business days please reach out to us! I have attached exactly what is in the letter in this email as well. If there are other members of your party who wish to receive emails please also let us know and we can get them added to the email list. Mark and I are very excited for this year's tour and we hope you are too!
This year’s steam car tour will bring you to the hills of Litchfield County CT and surrounding areas July 14th-19th 2019. All of us are working away to make this year’s steam car tour a fun and exciting time to create new memories with loved ones. The tour is coming together nicely with many new and exciting venues. We have a vast array of venues planed so that everyone will find something to enjoy!
The hotel is going to be the Heritage Hotel in Southbury CT, there is NO overflow hotel! So, get your reservations in early! Reservations can be made by calling 203-264-8200 and use “Steam Car Tour 2019” for the group rate. We have negotiated a few different room rates, some of these rates INCLUDE breakfast and SOME DO NOT! Make sure to pick the right rate that works for your family! This hotel offers many different amenities including a vineyard, spa and golf course. When we arrive on Sunday July 14th there will be a warm-up as well as some time to get acquainted with the tour area.
The Heritage Hotel is very excited to be hosting us! The grounds are spectacular, we are very excited to have everyone at the hotel, as well as host both The Fire-Up and Blow-Down banquets there. There are also many local restaurants to choose from with a variety of cuisines. One of the things that both Mark and I really love about this hotel is that it is on a private, dead-end road and there is very little traffic, perfect for early morning firing and test runs!
This is a picturesque area of North-West Connecticut with the wonderful rolling hills as the backdrop will make for some wonderful back-road touring. This area of Connecticut proudly has many world class wineries and chocolate driving trails as well as many museums and some fun surprise destinations! Tour days are expected to range between 40 and 100 miles.
One of the very cool things we have planned for this tour is going to be the return of our much-loved church supper being hosted by the Knights of Columbus right in Southbury. Behind the scenes routes have been planned and we are working through some of the final details with the venues. This area of Connecticut is part of some of the most scenic areas in the states and we hope everyone will enjoy the tour!
We are hoping you find the tour interesting and are looking forward to it as much as we are! At this point we are asking for preliminary registrations to be returned ASAP with a 7$ check to cover future mailings, or you can request to have everything done via e-mail instead of snail mail! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!
