It was a a very successful event.
Saturday was overcast but warm. There was still a lot of color on the trees and it was a very pleasant Autumn day. Everyone got a hot lap in the Lime Rock M3 Pace Car with Drivers Club Director/Head Coach Simon Kirkby at the wheel.
We spent Saturday afternoon on a very pleasant drive through the New England countryside with stops in a couple of quaint towns and then at Housatonic Meadows State Park for a group photo, We then headed to dinner at the Falls Village Inn,
Sunday was a bleak day and we lost a few members who stayed home to prepare for Sandy, We headed from Lakevilee (Lime Rock) to the Wall of Amerca site in Winsted CT with a stop in the picturesque town of Litchfield, We met up with a few more Festers in Winsted and Ellen Griesedicek gave us a guided tour of the Wall of America (which is a work in prigress but definitely worth seeing, Sam Posey (Ellen's husband) stopped by to say hello.
Between the hot lap auction and the genrerous contributions from the attendees we raised over $1100 for the American Mural Project.
We are definitely planning on repeating this event next year,
