MAY TOUR TO CHIMAYO AND THE ENCHANTED CIRCLE

The plans for the Enchanted Circle trip are made and it will be a great tour
We will meet at Jacksons’ house (8322 Calle Picaflor NW) at 9:30am Friday, May 3 for departure by 9:45am.  From there we travel to Chimayo to visit Marco Oveido and his statues, bronze sculptures, his old car collection (there are rumors he is selling some of his cars so be ready).   Marco also has some world famous giant black donkey babies.  How do we know if the little critters will grow up to be Mammoth Donkeys?  We take Marco’s word for it.   We will probably lunch in Chimayo then travel to Taos.  In Taos, we have rooms set for us at the Sagebrush Inn.    Call them directly for your reservations and mention you are with the Ford V8 Club to get our discount rate.  Make your reservation by April 15!   Their number is 800-428-3626.  The Sagebrush Inn includes a free breakfast for us on Saturday morning.    We will leave for the Enchanted Circle Tour at 9am on Saturday morning and should easily be back in Albuquerque before dark Saturday evening.  For those who wish to spend extra time in Taos you won’t need to change hotels, just extend your stay at the Sagebrush Inn if you desire.
Remember this is a tour for our club but you do not need to drive your flathead unless you want to.  We’ll all have a great time along the way regardless of what you drive.

 

Reminder: The September 14th Tour to Chama and the Cumbres Toltec Railroad trip reservations need to be made now.  Details were emailed to everyone after the March meeting.  Reservations for the train ride may be made by calling 888-286-2737.  We are taking the September 14th Sunset Train Ride and sitting in a coach car.  Please tell the agent you are with the Early Ford V-8 Club.  Hotel reservations may be made by calling the Vista Del Rio at 575-756-2138.  Again, state you are with the Early Ford V-8 Club to get the discounted rate of $90 plus taxes.  Please let Beth know when you have completed your train reservations so we can track the members going.
