Bullfrog Open House
Bullfrog Auto, specializing in Porsche repair, has relocated to its new location at 204 Boyer Circle in Williston. They are hosting an open house for all Porsche owners and enthusiasts on Saturday, October 1 from 10am - 1pm. You will be able to discuss "all things Porsche" with Jason and Juan, and walk-through the new shop. Located on site and also participating in the event are Sun Stoppers and Washburn's Auto Body. You can talk with the experts at Sun Stoppers about making your vehicle "sparkle, pop and easy to clean" via exterior detailing to include ceramic coating, paint protection film, and window tinting. If your vehicle requires more than exterior detailing, the experts at Washburn's Auto Body can discuss anything from minor paint to collision repairs, as well as full body restoration.
MARK BBQ will be on site serving up some amazing food so be sure to bring your appetite!
There will be space for you to open those hoods and let everyone see first-hand why your Porsche is special!

GMR Fall Tour
Immediately following the open house GMR will host a driving tour from Williston to Richmond. The route that membership chair, Brad Kennison, has assembled is guaranteed to stimulate the senses with Vermont’s foliage.
After departing Bullfrog Auto, we will make a few jogs over to Dorset St. and then head south transitioning to Shelburne Falls Rd. At the stop light we will turn right on Rt 116 and continue south through Hinesburg and Starksboro. At the intersection of Rt 17 we will turn left and begin our climb to higher elevations which should bring about a noticeable change in foliage. At Gore Rd. we will turn left and head north along the western slope of Camels Hump. This portion of the drive will take us through Huntington with the tour ending at the historic Old Round Church in Richmond, Vt., built in 1812.
There are no planned stops on this tour which will last just over an hour. If you are in need of nurishment or drink there are several establishments only minutes away which are listed here:
- Stone Corral Brewery
- Stone’s Throw Pizza
- The Big Spruce – Mexican
- Sweet Simon’s – Café, bakery
- Hatchet – New American
- Cumberland Farms – at the stop light
- Exxon Mobile – at entrance to I-89
Access to I-89 heading north or south is approximately eight minutes away. Please Note - Do not use Rt 2 south due to road construction.
