Jane & Dennis will lead us on a leisurely drive around Washington Island followed by lunch at Nelson’s Bitters Club (the oldest operating alcohol proprietor in the United States). You will have a choice of hamburger, cheeseburger, whitefish sandwich or soup and salad bar. We will have separate checks.

Following lunch you have “free time” to either further explore the island, join a group doing the Fragrant Isle tour, or return to the mainland.

5:00 pm:      We will be meeting at The Chop House in Sister Bay at 5:00 pm. We will order off a limited menu and pay with separate checks.

(no limit on number of participants)

The drivers meeting for the Photo Challenge has been changed to 9:15 am at Jo Jo’s Pizza across from the Somerset Inn. Please be prompt. Instead of a staggered start, all cars will be starting at the same time. Each car must complete the challenge individually by following the directions exactly. You will need a digital camera or smart phone w/camera. It is easiest if there is a separate driver and passenger in each car, but anyone is qualified to enter.

9:15am:       Drivers’ meeting at Jo Jo's Pizza
9:15am:       Start Challenge
6:00pm:       Awards Banquet at The Log Den, Egg Harbor.
We will be served “family style” for $26.00 per person. Cash bar.

Breakfast at The Somerset (or your choice), then say our “good-byes” and head home.
