For our official first event of the spring season we will be launching from the Malta Marriott Fairfield parking lot located at Exit 12 of the Northway on Sunday April 18th. We leave around 10:30ish and run the cars at the high end of the tachometer to scare the assorted mice, chipmunks and spiders who have sought refuge for the winter out of the engine and wheel wells. Our destination is going to be Dunham's Bay Resort located on the east shore of Lake George for a wonderful Sunday brunch buffet. This is one of the chapters oldest traditions dating back to the mid '70s. Rumor has it before the era of seatbelt usage and sensibility, there was one member of the chapter who was involved in local law enforcement and he would lead the pack well into triple digit speeds. That is not the case anymore, but the spirit of the event still can be felt as we shed our snow tires and give the cars their first good cleaning prior to the run.
