This email is to announce the Podunk Promenade redux. June 27th through July 2nd 2021, in Southbridge, MA. We will be having long and short routes each day.
The host hotel is the Southbridge Hotel & Conference Centre. We do have a block of rooms set aside for us. After that block is gone, the remaining rooms are first come, first served. www.southbridgehotel.com or 508-765-8000 to book. A secondary hotel location is being determined.
We’ll be visiting quite a few places that are the largest, oldest, first, last, or only in the country.
There’s track day access ,a dead horse hill-climb,
the Quabbin, lake Chargoggagoggmanchaugaggoggchaubunagungamaugg, wineries and breweries.
For our shortest day, 10 miles round trip, we’re organizing an optional 20 mile navigational challenge and a costume contest. The navigational challenge route has no mileage markers and directions are by landmarks. The costume contest is for the best dressed steam team (one entry per car), and will be judged by the Sturbridge Village, participation will require social media. So dig out your Victorian finery, WWI or WWII Homefront gear, be seen in your flapper digs, be covered in coordinated coveralls, or steampunk it up.
Registration will be sent out by early April.
