2014 Sleigh Days - Old Sturbridge Village (Rescheduled)

I was just e-mailed by the OSV with a revised date for this event - very short notice and it also conflicts with another meet. I also will be unable to attend this date so it will likely be a self guided event. Will be a wonderful event for those who can make it! ~ Matt

 

See dozens of horse-drawn sleighs slide silently over the snow and compete for prizes in various categories, including crowd favorites Currier & Ives and Sleigh Dog.

This event will be dependent on snow - no snow and the event/meetup will be canceled. We should know in advance where we stand with this.

Please check out this video - if your not sold on how wonderful an event this might be!!

    Just wanted to post this link directly from OSV - they have 9:30 as the start time. I'm afraid if you don't meet until 10 am, then have to walk to the field, you may miss a lot. Rose and I are going to get there around 9, but we'll look for you there!

      If you go to the OSV website it lists the daily schedule. The sleigh rally begins at 11:30. I'm going to head over for the original time and meet up with the group over at the field not at the entrance.

      We discovered that when we got there, which was okay as we shot photos throughout the village before heading to the field around 10:15. We couldn't tell who was in the group from the rest of the camera carrying crowd, but hope to meet some of you next time!

    Is anyone going up from Mid-CT (as in the geographical area/ not the group). I will be traveling from Cromwell / leaving around 9AM, heading back home by 2.

    February 19, 2014

    • Kathy W.

      How about around 9 am? I tend to arrive a few (5) minutes late but will do my best to get there on time. This may be silly to say, but I want to make sure you know this is not the same commuter lot that's been used by the group in the past. I am sending you my cell phone number (via email), just in case.

    • Janet

      thanks, don't know either commuter lots... but I know 384 & I'll find it... don't worry about being late.. i'll be fine, I'll leave a litte early to make sure I find the lot. I got your email. Thanks... see you Sat. @ 9 AM

    What time are we meeting and where are we gathering?

    • Kathy W.

      We are meeting around 10 am inside the visitor center, in the area beyond the ticket desk, after you purchase your tickets.

    I'll be at the meetup at CT Historical Society, but wishing I could make the sleigh rally, too! It should be great with all the snow!

  • Colleen M.

    So sorry, but I have another event already planned for this Saturday. I am sure I will see everyone at an event soon. :)

    Hi Kathy, Lyman Orchards is a two day event, the 22nd, and the 23rd. We are planning to go on the 22rd. because we are going with another couple who can only make it on the 22nd. I am so sorry. Like you said, "So many events, so little time."

    2 · February 19, 2014

  • Louis G.

    I was planing on going to the original date. but now the date has changed and I am already committed to attending the "Lyman Orchards Winterfest" on this day. Sorry.

    February 19, 2014

    • Kathy W.

      Hi Louis. I just want to make sure you know that the Lyman Orchards event and Old Sturbridge Village are on different days--so you won't miss Lyman Orchards on Sunday. OSV is in Saturday. There is however another Mid CT event on Saturdsy at the same time. So many events, so little time!

  • Colleen M.

    I just checked the site too and you are right Rosie. But they said they may reschedule it for a later date, so we can only hope for some snow.

      I was planing on going. Thanks for the info.

    According to the OSV website the event has been canceled http://www.osv.org/event/antique-sleigh-rally-canceled

    If there are any other teachers out there - we have 50% off admission at OSV. Bring a paystub or union membership card for proof...they're always trying to encourage bringing student groups for field trips, so a bit of a perk for us. ;)

      Thanks for the tip Dot.

      Do students get a discount too? I'll google it.

    Awesome! Can't wait for updates!

    I have no idea what I'm getting in to but this event looks like fun. Plus you can't go wrong with OSV.

      We've never done this before, so none of us knows what we're into either! That's the best kind of fun.

      We've had friends go from other photo meetup groups in the past, and they've had great photos. All we need is some snow!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
