[DMCForum] DMA Fall Folaige Tour 08 Details are here!!!



All of the details are here for the Fall Folaige Tour 08: 
http://deloreanmid-atlantic.com/events/2008/fft/fft.htm We're having 
problems with the site so we're using this link for now until the 
problem is fixed. 

Details are pasted below as well. This event is for DMA members only. 
Membership is only $15/year and you can pay the day of the event. The 
discounts we got for this event are far more than the $15 membership 
fee! Please take a few minutes and read everything. A LOT of work 
went into this one... :)


Get your cars ready and pack your cameras, this is definitely one 
event you don't want to miss! The DMA Fall Foliage Tour 08. In 2006, 
the Tour began in Morrisville, PA and ended up at the Delaware Water 
Gap in PA. I wanted to go up further north, but we simply didn't have 
enough time. So this year we're going to start where we left off! 
It's Part II of the DMA Fall Foliage Tour 06!!! This is quite 
possibly the most scenic and event packed Fall Foliage Tour ever put 
together. I did the dry run (or should I say "wet run" thanks to the 
Hurricane) this past weekend of the entire route and the scenery is 
beyond gorgeous. Every stop is going to be unique in every way, and 
the prices are the best yet. In today's economy where all prices are 
going through the roof, the DMA FFT event prices have GONE DOWN!!! 
Yes, DOWN! For all info, see below.

Friday:

First we start by meeting at the Dansbury Depot at 7:30 for dinner. 
The Dansbury Depot which used to be a Train Station so it's pretty 
cool looking inside. http://www.thedansburydepot.com/ 

Price $20 (includes tax and tip. This dinner is only good for 30 
people or more. If we have less than 30, we'll be ordering from their 
main menu.) Please bring $20 cash to pay at the dinner.

Choice of House Salad or Caesar Salad
You will have a choice of 1 of 4 Entrees:
1) Chicken Parmigiana with Marinara Sauce over Linguine

Potatoes

After dinner, we return to the hotel where the bar and indoor heated 
pool will be open late for us.

Hotel Info: The Shannon Inn http://www.shannoninn.com/ (Note: Hotel 
is changing to a Days Inn between now and FFT and being fully 
renovated) The hotel has a big indoor heated pool which was a major 
hit back in 2006.

Rt. 80, just north of exit on the left.

Saturday Morning:

Leave hotel at 8:30 SHARP! We need to leave on time. We'll take a 
very scenic drive along the Delaware River where we will arrive at 
Gillinder Glass in Port Jervis NY at 10am. 
http://www.gillinderglassstore.com/ We'll take a 1.5hr tour of the 
factory and see how glass art is made. Cost is $3. (Please bring cash 
to pay for the tour.) The tour is not normally this long, but on this 
day specifically, the tour will feature special guest glass artists. 
This is a special event at Gillinder Glass and they are coming in 
early just for us! Members will then have 30min to browse the gift 
store.

www.erietracksidemanor.com Arrive around 12:15. Parking is in the 
municipal lot across the street from the restaurant. Lunch is ONLY 
$10!!! (tax and tip included. Please bring cash to pay the day of 
lunch.) We'll be watching Back to The Future on one of their many 
TV's in the bar, and maybe even on their 100" screen! The owner and 
her son are SO EXCITED to have us; they CAN'T WAIT for us to get 
there with our cars!

Entrée Choices: 
Chicken Teriyaki Caesar Salad
Chef Salad
Fish & Chips (Battered Cod)

We'll leave Port Jervis at around 1:30 and take a very scenic tour 
through NY and the Poconos in PA on our way to Callie's Candies and 
Pretzel Factory stores. http://www.calliescandy.com/  You're 
definitely going to want to have your cameras fully charged for this 
part of the trip. The scenery is amazing.

We'll arrive at Callie's at around 3:30. At Callie's Candies and 
Callie's Pretzel factories, you'll see how candy and pretzels are 
made. They'll be doing demonstrations for our group. The factories 
are about 3 miles apart and you're welcome to go to either place, or 
both. There are a lot of interesting places in between the two 
Callie's locations so feel free to stop and check out anything you 
want. 

We'll meet up back at Callie's Candie's to depart for a quick photo 
opportunity. (If you're a photographer, you're gonna love this spot!) 
It's a surprise!!! :)

Then we're off to dinner at the Fairway Grille 
http://www.buckhillfalls.com/Welcome-to-the-Fairway-Grille-at-the-
Buck-Hill-Golf-Club~101481~13235.htm This is a very exclusive Country 
Club and the food is amazing and homemade. Just look at the below 
menu. (Cost for Dinner is only $25.00. Includes tax & gratuity.

mushroom risotto.

mashed potatoes
  c) Tuscan Lasagna...smoked chicken, hot sausage, ricotta pesto, 
spinach and roasted peppers baked in a bechamel fontina sauce


Dessert and MORE FUN:

After dinner, we're heading over to the Casino Theatre in Mt. Pocono 
PA. http://www.casinotheatre.net/ The Casino Theatre is not a 
gambling casino, it's a uniquely designed fun place that has TWO full-
size movie theatres (where you can have food or dessert served WHILE 
you're watching the movie), over 50 flavors of Hershey's Ice Cream 
for dessert, miniature golf, and a game room. They are very excited 
to have the DMA there and have been gracious enough to give everyone 
that shows up in our group, $5 in free tokens, unlimited miniature 
golf (19 holes), and they reduced their movie ticket prices just for 
us to only $4!!! These are current movies too! Not only that, but 
they've developed a special "DeLorean Sundae" just for the DMA! So 
this is not a place to miss! Members can stay as long as they want. 
When you're ready to leave, the hotel is just 15min down the road.


Sunday: 

We'll leave the hotel at around 9am to go to Shawnee Mountain where 
they're holding their annual Balloon Festival. 
http://shawneemt.com/fall/timberballoon.htm Everyone that drives 
their DeLorean to the Balloon Festival will be able to put it on 
display for everyone to see. Everyone that does this will receive 
free parking (a $5 value), get into the festival for free (a $20-$24 
value for 2 people), and will have a chance at winning a "People's 
Choice Award". The winner will receive a prize from Shawnee! (Still 
working on the prize details but I can assure you it's gonna be a big 
one!) The DeLoreans will be in a sectioned off area in the parking 
lot and will be on display to all that attend the festival. You don't 
need to stay by your car if you don't want to, but you're more than 
welcome to hang out and answer everyone's questions; and we all know 
there will be A LOT OF QUESTIONS! Our DMC's will be on display for 
thousands of people to enjoy. 

You may stay as long or as short as you like at the Balloon Festival. 
I have a feeling that the DMA is going to steal the show this year!

This is going to be the best FFT ever. You don't want to be left out 
of this one. Book your room and register for dinner asap!

Thanks and see you then!
