Nike Missile Base and Linganore Tour

Ellicott City Assembly Point

About this event

Just from its name, you know that this PCA Chesapeake tour is going to be very unusual. For one thing, it will be both a driving escapade and a destination event. And it will feature not just one but two distinct destinations. The first is the deactivated BA-79 Nike Missile Base in Granite, MD. The second is the joint Linganore Winecellars/Red Shedman Brewery.

Limited to 30 Porsches, this tour is certain to sell out quickly, as it did last year, so sign up ASAP. The registration window will open at 1 PM on May 13 and close at 1 PM on May 28. Three editions of the tour will be offered on the same day, with staggered start times, for Groups 1, 2 and 3. Each group will be made up of no more than 10 cars and will be offered a 45-minute guided tour of the Cold War era base that once held anti-aircraft nuclear missiles.

This Tour & Rally Committee event will conclude with a picnic lunch at Linganore. In between, there will be delightful country roads for us to enjoy in our Porsches. This extravaganza is the brainchild of guest tour master and PCA Chesapeake President Ron Farb.

The size of the waiting list will help determine whether more editions of the tour will be held later in the year.
