Hello Cobra Buddies,
It is time to make your reservations, for the “2019 Run to The Sun”! This year there has been a change. We will be staying at the “Freestone Inn At Wilson Ranch” (hereafter referred to as “The Inn”) in Mazama, WA, which is a few miles west of Winthrop, WA. We have a finite block of rooms (ten) on hold for the group, so make your reservations NOW!
We arrive at “The Inn” the afternoon of June 21nd and depart on June 23th. Gloria and I will be staying an extra day and departing on the 24th, you are welcome to join us. When you make your reservations be sure and say you are with the “The Car Group”, that’s the way they have it referenced in their reservation system. The phone number for “The Inn” is (800) 639-3809. To check out “The Inn” on the web go to Freestone Inn :: Home
We will be meeting for a hearty breakfast the morning of Friday June 21st at 10:00 AM in the Silvana, WA area, at Stephen and Judy Crostens home. If you are planning on participating in the Run to The Sun, send me a private message with your email address and we will get you directions.
After breakfast, we will depart from Silvana at 11:30 AM and head over Highway 20 to Mazama, WA and “The Inn”. Highway 20 is always a fun drive. We usually make a stop for gas and a comfort stop at a view point, during the trip.
Friday evening, we will meet at “Jack's Hut-Pizza & Brews”, which is on the “The Inn” property, for a few adult beverages (if you are so inclined), swap lies and have dinner. After dinner we can adjourn to the patio or if it is cool outside move over to the gas fired fire pit for coffee and more catching up on the past year.
Saturday June 22nd, after breakfast at “The Inn”, we will travel to a brew pub in Republic, WA for lunch. We will take Hwy. 20 from “The Inn” to Republic and back. Distance is about 100 miles each way. We try and get back early enough so people can hit the pool or take nap. In the evening we will meet for dinner at the “The Inn’s” Lakeside Dining Room at 7:30 PM. In 2017 the “The Inn” received the “Diner’s Choice Award”.
On June 23rd we will meet for breakfast with those that are leaving. Those that are staying will use the time to plan what we are going to do that day.
Dale & Gloria McBain
PS- If any one is counting this is the 12th annual Run to The Sun!
