Join us for a Fun Run to the Eastern Shore on Saturday, July 20th. We will have a great time cruising on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, meeting our Eastern Shore Friends at the Visitors Center over the bridge, visiting the Eastern Shore of VA National Wildlife Refuge, going to Kiptopeke State Park and then driving to Onancock for lunch at Mallards on the Wharf.
The schedule will be as follows:
9:30 AM - Meet at the Beginning of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Aiming to leave at 9:45 AM after an introduction to the day/drivers meeting.
10:15 AM - Arrive at the Eastern Shore Visitors Center to meet any other FSR members from the Eastern Shore.
10:30 AM - Proceed to the Eastern Shore of VA National Wildlife Refuge for a tour of the grounds and a short video presentation. At the Wildlife Refuge you will see the WWII gun barrel from the Missouri that has been placed on the Bunkers.
11:30 AM - A quick trip to Kiptopeke State Park. Admission $3.00 We will view the Concrete Ships in the Chesapeake Bay.
12:00 PM Noon - Back on the road. Dixon Leatherbury, esteemed FSR member and lifelong Eastern Shore resident, has graciously mapped out a road trip from Kiptopeke to Onancock, where we expect to arrive around 1PM and have a late lunch together at Mallards on the Wharf, www.mallardsllc.com. They will have a room reserved for our group, we'll order from the menu; pay as you go.
After lunch, those who want to go on their own are welcome to do so. For your information, there is the 26th Anniversary Blueberry Festival in Chincoteague. Or you can take another road trip with us back to the Cape Charles area and head home.
We hope to see everyone. There is no charge for this event aside from your meal and park entry fee, but we'd like those attending to register to give us a head count. You can sign up for the drive if you choose not to stay for lunch.
See you on the road to the Eastern Shore!!!
