July 26 – Picnic in Charlotte

          Saturday, July 26 – Tour and Picnic at
Dennis and Judy Bosch’s Place in Charlotte on
Lake Champlain
4 p.m. to sunset
Bring your canoe, kayak, or other watercraft
Or arrive by boat!
            324 Wings Point, Charlotte  
RSVP to   Dennis at vtporsche@aol.com

Fun event at Dennis and Judy Bosch’s home in Charlotte! We will be doing chicken BBQ. Cost is a mere $5 per person charge — paid to Christina McCaffrey at the Bosch’s–  to defer costs of the main course and desert which the Bosches are so graciously cooking up.
Dennis needs a headcount for the chicken and dessert, so please RSVP ASAP to Dennis at vtporsche@aol.com.
It’s BYOB and please bring a side dish of “whatever,” as Bill Root puts it. Dennis says anyone who wants to go kayaking or canoeing or other water sports is welcome to bring their watercraft over the night before due to the transport challenges of toting that equipment in our Porsches.
Plan on arriving at 4 p.m. and stay through sunset.  Note: there will no GMT auto tour in connection with this event — just picnic, jump in the water, visit with fellow club members!  Dennis says no dogs, please.

DIRECTIONS per Dennis:  “Route 7 to Ferry Road (also know as F5) Turn West toward Lake Champlain.  Go through stop sign. Go over the railroad racks, then continue to sharp left hand curve in road.  At that curve take the short gravel road to the end of the road. That’s Wings Point Road. At end of Wings Point Road turn into the driveway That’s our place. Follow to the end of the driveway down onto the lake.”

 

Don’t forget, bring your own beverages, as well as a veggie or other side. Look forward to some fun times!
