2019 Winter Tour Update


We now have 99 cars registered and 120 rooms booked. More rooms have been added to our room block, but we are going to have to hold firm at 120 cars this year, due to trailer parking limitations at the Renaissance. 

​As we hit the car limit, we'll begin building a "Wait List" and back filling our cancellations. We typically have 10-15% cancellations, so it isn't too late to register.

It is amazing, the great response to our tour. With the miserable weather this year "up north" however, we expect it'll remain popular, in spite of our relatively flat, straight roads! Maybe it's also about good friends?

Next update in 30 days!

Best regards,
