Road Trip: Tilghman Island Day

Are there any crab meat junkies in our membership? Or other seafood? John Switzer has suggested we do a club road trip to the Eastern Shore, for the annual Tilghman Island Day on October 19th. Tilghman Island is near St. Michaels, and is called the home of Maryland's seafood industry.

This event is free, so why not? It's another option to get to meet our fellow members who don't get to the DIYs. Plus if you're a seafood fan, there'll be lots to eat, and it'll be fun to have a Volvo show of force at this event. Who knows, maybe with all our Volvos we might get into the small-town newspaper! One more thing for your Volvo scrapbook. And even if you're just a fan of see-food (e.g. you see food, and you eat it), come out for fun and food on the shore.

According to Mapquest, these are the directions: Rt. 50 East over Bay Bridge (there's a toll for the bridge going east) - Take slight right at MD-322 South, go about 2 miles - Right turn at MD 33 West - St. Michaels Rd, stay on it for roughly 22 miles until you reach the Tilghman Island drawbridge.

John Switzer, our host for this event, says: Come enjoy the Land of Pleasant Living up close. Steamed crabs, raw & fried oysters, all kinds of good stuff! Vendors with Eastern Shore memories available. Lots of really nice folks, and come meet The Toad (aka John's PV544) & Jakob! If you can come for the Festival, we should gather at Mike & Eric's Bay Hundred Restaurant around 2 PM and compare notes.  They're located to the right just before you cross the drawbridge and the deck is perfect for watching boat traffic through Knapps Narrows. The most important thing is to get to Tilghman Island around 10 AM; have a look about and enjoy the food; go to Dogwood Harbor and watch [or take part in] the events. See the postings below for more tips!

    Just make sure folks come and have fun all day. Well worth the trip for the steamed crabs, oysters, etc. at The Firehouse. And money spent for that food goes to the Volunteer Firehouse, so good cause. Oh, and visit the Tilghman's Waterman's Museum [newly opened] while here as well. Then to M&E's around 2 PM or so and compare notes! HA!

The Toad and Jakob will be nearby --- look for the very natty VOLVO's with the 'prancing moose' emblems proudly displayed! HA! And the food at Mike & Eric's is superb if you haven't stuffed your self already!
