Hilton Garden Inn Parking Lot
We'll start our morning by meeting in the parking lot at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ronkonkoma, NY. The event does not include an official breakfast time slot, but there is a Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and bagel or diner options down the street. Goody bags will be handed out before we are set to leave. Please be sure to arrive with a full tank of gas!
Our Road Rally and driving tour will bring us up around the scenic north shore area of Long Island where we'll pass through wineries and food stands throughout Riverhead and Jamesport. The tour is casual and plenty of time is provided to go slowly, or spend some time at any of the locations if desired.
*Please bring a digital camera and a GPS Device (if you have one). You will be provided detailed maps of the route, but your GPS can help in unfamiliar territory. If you have an extra camera/GPS device, please bring it along so we can lend it to those who do not have them.
**Also, please remember to bring your name badge and your two-way radios! If this is your first event as a member, you will receive a new name badge.
You will be asked to photograph different items along the way from a checklist given to you at the start of the event. Points will be awarded and prizes will be handed out at dinner!
