Bluegrass Back Road T’s 2016 Tour.
Please join the Bluegrass
Back Road T’s 2016 tour as we return to Corydon, IN for four days of fun
starting daily from the Holiday Inn Express - Corydon. Registration will
begin on Tuesday, May 31st. The fun begins on Wednesday, June 1st
and the last day of touring is Saturday, June 4th. Check out is Sunday,
With Kim Doty and his exceptional route planning and navigational skills, we will travel some of the best Model T roads in three counties.
This year we will travel to the Jasper transmission rebuild facility, view the Kentucky ocean from the northern border, dine at the world famous Polly Freeze and be entertained by the Brass Band on the square in Corydon. We will cross over several iron bridges, drive through several creek crossings and have a catered lunch by Ladonna, who has been kind enough to cater lunch for us in the past.
We will do things a little differently this tour than we have done before. We will do a “pay as you go” to keep the registration cost down and allow options for those who may not the like group menu choices. We will have negotiated lunch stop rates for all group lunches. The minimal registration costs will be to cover needed items and include the trouble truck expenses and hospitality room snacks and water.
We will also send out route and event sheets for you to print at home using the print size and font of your choice. The host hotel will be the Holiday Inn Express - Corydon, with a campground nearby. Registration for the hotel will begin on January 1st, 2016 with a preferred Model T rate. Simply ask for it.
We would enjoy your company at our 2016 Bluegrass Back Road T tour. Please register for the tour with Linda at [email protected] and see our website at HTTP://bluegrassbackroadts.weebly.com

2014 Mountain State T’s of WV, Model T Tour, September 14-18, 2014
The Mountain State T's have decided to remain in the Northern Panhandle for the 2014 Model T tour. We will once again be staying in the small college town of Bethany. Bethany College is a liberal arts institution and was founded by Alexander Campbell in 1840. There are no fast food restaurants or gasoline stations in Bethany and needless to say. . . . no traffic lights!
We will be staying at the Gresham Inn that is a part of the Mountainside Conference Center. The members of the Bethany Eastern Star organization and the Women's Club of Bethany will be providing us with breakfast in the mornings and dinner each evening. Tours are being planned to visit a museum, a restored village, a cabinet factory, some private collections and Amish stores for shopping. We will have a get acquainted tour on Sunday afternoon, and day tours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Bethany is located approximately 15 miles north of Wheeling at the intersection of Route 88 North and Route 67 East. Traveling Route 88 North from Wheeling with a truck and car hauler would not be ideal. It would be far better to follow WV Route 2 to just south of Wellsburg and turn right onto Route 67 East. Follow Route 67 East for about 6 miles, then turn right on Route 88 South and then right again into the Mountainside Conference Center.
Ladies: If you have some new craft or sewing project you are working on and think the other participants would be interested in learning about it, please bring your supplies with you and we will have an area in which you can teach others.
Won't you join us for the annual Mountain State T tour in WV. For additional information please contact Jim Bowery @ [email protected] or telephone him at 304-737-2883.
