    This turned out to be a very special day. Renewed an old friendship that means an awful lot to me personally...great to see you Hank and your special family. Great weather after all that rain. Fine dining morning and afternoon plus...being guided through the field of competitors by one of racing finest engine builders left me speechless...imagine that!

    Don, I will not be able to attend today's event. I have to stay off my feet due to some surgery issues. Have a fun day.

  • don s.

    We will probably spend some time on bleacher seats...stadium chairs advisable. Probably some mucky conditions on the trail too.

    OK hours away from the hill climb. Breakfast @ 8:00 at the hotel. I'll try to get there a little early to insure seating. Right now it looks like Matt (4), Ken (1), Paul(2), Jerry (1) and Ann and I (2). Looks like 10 MINIacs...

    I understand that breakfast is going to be at the hotel, but where at the hotel?

    btw we have four that will be going.

    June 12, 2014

    • kenregen

      I think it would be best that we all just meet in the front of the hotel at the main entrance and we will then just go in as a group and go from there....

      June 12, 2014

    • Matt B

      sounds good, thanks for the clarification

      June 13, 2014

  • Jerry B.

    Thank you, Don.

    June 8, 2014

  • don s.

    Jerry, we are meeting at the hotel around 8:00 AM for breakfast...then we'll head down to the hill climb at the bottom of the hill...he to see you for breakfast.

    June 8, 2014

    After consideration and commiseration, breakfast at the Hershey Hotel on Saturday would be a nice kick off to The Grand Ascent. We can probably get reservations...the Hershey Pantry is great but no guarantee on seating and they are busy on the weekends. What say you participants?

      After seeing the conversation on here. I talked it over with kait and if we still can we would like to meet up. The only issue would be if her parents join us to because they will be tagging along for that weekend.

      The more the merrier.

      May 20, 2014

  • don s.

    OK called the hotel as they do not take reservations for breakfast...I called and was told that if we are there early...7:45-8ish there is no problem getting a table. So there you have it...now we need time to march on.

    May 20, 2014

  • don s.

    Hey, Paul...Ann and I are going on Saturday morning the 14th...not sure what you and Joyce are planning but lunch at the Circular Dining Room is on our addenda.
