Fall Get-A-Way Weekend -- The Catskills, The Gunks, & Historic Hyde Park -- NCR Rally Event #5 for 2019

The NCR Fall Get-A-Way Weekend for 2019 will take us to the Catskill Region of New York, traveling sinuous roads of its namesake mountains and nearby Shawangunk Mountains (The Gunks).  The Catskills are famous for highly rated sport fishing, and our route over low-traffic roads offers twists and turns alongside renowned trout streams.  The Gunks are famous in their own right as offering well-regarded rock-climbing challenges that are not for the faint of heart.  After our Sunday drive and lunch, you are free to take a direct route to Hyde Park where National Historic Sites, including (i) the Estate of Franklin Deleano Rosevelt, (ii) the Vanderbilt Mansion, and (iii) Val-Kill, Eleanor Roosevelt's hideaway and later residence, are venues available for your exploration.

Hotel accomodations have been arranged at the Hampton Inn - Kingston where We have a block of 15 rooms available until August 14 at a discounted rate (ave. $179/night).  Your room includes a hot breakfast each morning, free WiFi, and other amenities.  Segregated Porsche-only parking will be provided at the hotel.  Make your reservation early, but no later than Aug 14, using our dedicated reservation link for North Country Porsche Club or by calling the hotel (845-382-2600) and identifying yourself as a group member.  You are responsible for making your own hotel reservations.  Reserve now to avoid disappointment.


Saturday:  Your arrival day.  Greet old friends and make new ones at an evening Social Hour (cash bar) and Welcome dinner at Christina's Restaurant, a short drive from the Hampton Inn.

Sunday:  We make an early start on the day to allow ample time in the afternoon for your own exploration of historic venues in Hyde Park.  After breakfast it will be the usual Sign-In & Waivers followed by the obligatory Drivers Meeting.  Our drive will take us initially south, but a turn toward the west will begin our serpentine ascent of The Gunks.  Once over and through The Gunks, we will follow a circuit through the Catskills and back through The Gunks, terminating our group drive at our lunch destination, the Mountain Brauhaus, within sight of dramatic cliffs.  

After lunch, you are free to make a 30-minute drive to Hyde Park and the historic sites of your choosing:  
(i) Franklin D. Roosevelt Home (Springwood) and Presidential Library and Museum;
(ii) Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site from the "Gilded Age";
(iii) Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site, where the home, Val-Kill, was getaway retreat and, after the death of FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt's home.  
(iv)  Other

Please see the Historic Hyde Park website for links to these and other sites you may wish to vist.  Entry into the homes is by scheduled guided tour only, with tickets ($) sold on a first-come/first-served basis.

Sunday's adventures will wrap up with a Social Hour (cash bar) and Group Dinner at the Ship to Shore Restaurant along the Kingston waterfront.  The restaurant's owner has his own Porsche, so expect some lively repartee.

Monday:  A day at your leisure; a time for good-byes and departure for further exploration or your drive home.

Mandatory Drivers Meeting:  8:15 AM
