Sunday, August 18, 2019, we will be taking a tour of Tour Ed Mine in Tarentum.
The cost will be $8.50 per person or $8.00 per person if we have a group of 25.
You can check out the location at tour-edmine.com. There will also be a Flea
Market the Sunday we are there for our tour. If someone doesn’t want to go
down into the mine they can shop at the flea market. I have reserved the pavilion
there so we can pack a lunch or get lunch from the food trucks at the flea
After lunch and the flea market we will go on Edwards Ice Cream in Gibsonia for
a treat. Then we move on for a free wine tasting at Mazzotta Winery in Gibsonia.
They are asking that we pick six different wines to try since we will have a group, so please see me at the membership meeting
to pick the wines you are interested in tasting. After people have picked their favorites I will tally the results and put together
the list of the six we will taste based on the most popular choices.
The day of the event we will meet in Tarentum at 9:15 and go on to the mine as a group. They normally charge for parking for
the flea market but they won’t charge us that day if we go as a group to the mine. We have the pavilion from 12:00-1:00 for
lunch. Edwards ice cream is a 15 minute drive from the mine and the winery is 10 minutes from Edwards. I plan to arrive at
the winery around 3:15. It will depend on how many people sign up as to how much time we will need.
Feel free to contact me in the evenings with any questions,
Cassel79@yahoo.com or 412-932-7326 in the evening.
There are 10 cars from the Club planning to attend. They will meet the Michigan Caravan in Indianapolis on Tuesday,

Pat Hillyard has planned a trip for the Club to take place September 15th to the 18th or 19th,
2019. It is mainly a driving trip that will cover some routes with great Corvette roads.
The trip will start out from Uniontown Mall in Pennsylvania and travel through Elkins, West
Virginia to Harrisonville, Virginia , and from there get on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There will be
a stop for dinner at the Liberty Station Restaurant in Bedford, Virginia, and we will spend that
first night in Roanoke, Virginia. The next morning the drive will continue on the Blue Ridge
Parkway and then on to Asheville, North Carolina, spending the second night there. The next
morning there will be a tour of the Biltmore Estate and then head on to Blairsville, Georgia and dinner will be at a motorcycle/
sports car resort and spend the night in that area. The next morning will start with a drive on the Gauntlet, a loop of 133
miles of twisty roads through the mountains of northeast Georgia. From there the drive will continue to Tellico Plains, Tennessee
to drive the Cherahola Skyway to Robbinsville, North Carolina and then on to Deals Gap to drive the Tail of the Dragon.
From there the route will go to the Foothills Parkway to head to Pigeon Forge. In Pigeon Forge there will be some options depending
on how long we stay and could include a visit to Dollywood and/or the Titanic and the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum.
The drive home will be on the Super Slabs.
Pat is limiting the trip to 15 cars so if interested, contact him as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

Pat will provide those who are going on the trip with the hotel information as it gets
closer to the time of the trip. He anticipates that the hotel cost will be between
$500 and $650, depending on how long the stay is in Pigeon Forge.
