Time to give your trusty steed some exercise after a long winter’s nap!

We will depart Bend Best Buy/ Starbucks parking lot at 8:04 AM Friday April 19 for a scenic 6+/- hour drive to the Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino in Reno Nevada.

After check-in and freshening up we will drive 15 minutes to a late afternoon (approx. 4:30-6:00PM) tech session at EBS Racing (see p. 23 of your May issue of Excellence Magazine). The tour will be hosted by Jon (the owner) and EBS engine builder Don Weaver. This is a relatively small shop and we will enjoy a very relaxed, low-key tour. Our hosts have assured me that cold adult beverages will be provided!

Late Saturday morning we will have an Arrive & Drive type of event enjoying some of the scenic twisties of the Reno/ North Tahoe area. There is a chance we may be joined by some of our local clubmates, although they may be worn out following their scheduled ballroom dancing event on Friday night. All High Desert Region ballroom dancers have been invited, please contact me if you need info…

Saturday afternoon a tour of the National Automobile Museum (Harrah collection) is on tap. Only a 5 minute drive from our hotel, this museum focuses on the automobiles and the automobile lifestyle through the decades. About 2 hours for this.

Saturday evening we can make a reservation for our group to have dinner at one of the hotel restaurants.

Sunday we will depart about 9:30AM, planning to arrive Bend about 4:30PM.

Important Hotel Details: Due to a city-wide Volleyball tournament, Reno hotels are very busy
this weekend. I have a limited number of rooms (King/ no smoke for $159/nt) held under my
name & credit card. Please contact me ASAP for instructions to secure one of these rooms. I
plan to release any unclaimed rooms April 5. (If we book all of the rooms we may get a better
Saturday night rate). Individuals (you) would still be able to cancel a room until April 18.
