18 August: There is an events at the First Colony Winery that Tbird Club members are invited to attend. It is co-hosted by VCTC members Wayne & Shirley Hast. It is on Saturday August 18th, from 1 - 3:30pm.
Club members are invited and hopefully will bring their Tbirds. Wayne is working with a number of Charlottesville business leaders who have collector cars who will drive them on Saturday, Aug 18.
There will be wonderful food, soft drinks and wine (of course) The winery was voted the best winery in Central Virginia and is beautiful. They have thatched roof buildings and host a large number of weddings. It will be a great place to get together. Their website is firstcolonywinery.com.
Anyone wanting to join a caravan to the First Colony Winery on Saturday, meet us at the Dairy Queen just off of I-64 at the Gum Spring exit (#159). We will gather there @ 11:30 with departure no later than 11:45. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Let Stan know if you are joining the caravan email@example.com .
I hope that the Thunderbird members would be interested in driving to the winery south of Charlottesville. I think it will make for a nice Saturday afternoon outing. The First Colony Winery web site has directions. RSVP to the Hasts at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, First Colony Winery
