What better way is there to top off the driving season and kick off the holidays than a party!  We searched the area for a celebratory venue and decided it was time to go Vermont all the way — at Hotel Vermont.

When: Saturday, Nov. 9  6:00 pm

Where: Hotel Vermont, 41 Cherry Street, Burlington, VT 05401

Featuring Cuisine from Around Vermont …

Cocktails and dinner will be provided by the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Juniper, which features locally sourced cuisine. Billed as a celebration of individual and community effort, the menu features delights from local farms, breweries, bakeries,
distilleries and gardens from throughout Vermont.

… A Brief Annual Members Meeting

There will be a brief business meeting (before the partying starts!) as called for
in our Region Bylaws. But we promise it won’t detract from the party atmosphere.

Bill Hayman and Carl Wulfestieg organized an exceptionally successful rally this summer in and around the Woodstock area of Vermont. Of course, as is the great strength of GMT’s members, the socializing and the food were outstanding once again. A BBQ was held at Carl’s gorgeous house, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for it, or for the rally drive itself. Cars came from nearby states, and from some not so nearby ones, too. And, the usual balance of new cars, vintage cars, and old cars made for a rich parade of interesting Porsches zipping around the countryside, although nobody committed an act of speeding or any other traffic infraction in the process. It was amazing.
