9:00 am - 1:00 pm: The Saturday Drive: We’ll leave the hotel and explore some great area roads and scenery. There will be both spirited and not so spirited groups. We’ll try to accommodate everyone’s driving style. And if all that great scenery and curvy driving isn’t enough,we will have lunch and then return to the hotel.
Noon: Lunch at Penn's Tavern. There will be a special menu just for us. (Try the crabcake sandwich, I guarantee you, it's great).
In the afternoon after the drive, you can take time to relax and visit the local attractions or just chill.
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm: The Banquet at BJ's Steak and Rib House. We will leave in a group for BJ's for dinner. Meet in the lobby at 5:45.

On our return to the Hampton Inn, adult beverages, general merry-making, and rehashing the events of the day will follow.
Sun 7 May
Breakfast (included) and then lot’s of good-byes and the drive home or hang out and tour the area. If you're leaving today, we hope you had a good time and we look forward to seeing you at Spring Fling 2018 or at Dragon Fall Run 2017.
