We're Back! "
Cruise Oregon November Newsletter
Wow....the election is over, and we can all get back to normal life! It's already the middle of November, and the year is fading fast. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Time to sit back and relax with those you love.
Registration forms for our 2017 cruise will be going out in the mail in early December, and as always, as soon as you get them back, we will send you the list of hotels where we have rooms blocked, so you can get your reservations made. On the registration forms, you can order your one of a kind Cruise Oregon license plate again this year, it looks great on your car for the cruise, and even better on the garage wall as a memory later. And we have something new to offer as well. People have said they have used their canvas goody bags after the cruise, and made them into pillows! Just put a pillow form into the bag and sew up the top....viola! So, on your registration form, there will be a spot to order extra canvas bags if you would like to do that. Both the license plates, and the extra bags will be a one time order, so if you want either of them, you need to order them on your registration form.
For those of you receiving this email who are not on our snail mail list, you will be able to print out the registration form from our website, sometime around the middle of December. The web address is: www.cruiseoregon.com
The committee is looking into things to do along the way. There will be a show n' shine in Florence, and they are very excited about us coming! Lighthouses, covered bridges, dune buggy rides, all are things we are looking in to. I will share what we come up with as they are firmed up.
We will not be having a meeting in December, so there will not be an email either. Your committee would like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and a very Merry Christmas.
Cruise Oregon October Newsletter
The weather is changing, most of us have put our cars to bed for the winter, and the Portland area is due for some pretty big storms this coming weekend. Hard to believe that summer is over, and we are heading into the "off" season.
Planning for the 2017 cruise is coming along. I stated in last month's newsletter that we would be staying entirely in the state of Oregon, but I now have to amend that. We were unable to get reasonable hotel rates in two of the northern Oregon coastal towns we were considering, so we will be spending two night's in Washington. Now that we have it all worked out, I can share where we will be going:
Saturday 7/8/17 - Leaving Sandy, Oregon and driving to Long Beach, Washington
Sunday 7/9/17 - Free day in Long Beach
Monday 7/10/17 - Leave Long Beach, and drive to Lincoln City, Oregon
Tuesday 7/11/17 - Leave Lincoln City, and drive to Florence, Oregon
Wednesday 7/12/17 - Free day in Florence
Thursday 7/13/17 - Leave Florence, and drive to Canyonville, Oregon
Friday 7/14/17- Free day in Canyonville
Saturday 7/15/17- Leave Canyonville and drive to Eugene, Oregon for our last night
This is shaping up to be a really awesome, easy driving cruise! There are no driving days that are more than 3 hours, and many with even less, so there will be plenty of time to stop along the way and see the sights. Mileage will be around 714 miles.
As always, we are now working on dinners, events, and getting together with other car clubs along the way. More about those plans as we firm them up over the coming months.
Have a great Halloween!
