Come join us for a short driving tour that ends up at the Vehicle Research Institute (VRI) on the campus of Western Washington University in Bellingham. The tour stars at the McDonald''’ near the Tulalip Casino and Seattle Premium Outlet Mall, and winds through the back roads of western Washington with a stop in Edison at The Bread Farm for either a quick snack or to pick up goodies to take home.
Then its on to Bellingham via the popular Chuckanut Drive. The students from WWU will present a program about VRI and demonstrate how they design, build and then compete with their prototype vehicles. PNWR has sponsored VRI with our largest donation of the year over the past several years, so come see first how they use the funds in their unique program. It will be an education! Pizza and drinks will be provided prior to the presentation and facility tour.
