From time to time, GVARC organizes a road trip to some location of significance to our region. This has included trips to the Amazon Distribution Center, Amerind, Mt Hopkins, Gaslight Theater, Franklin Car Museum, U of A Mirror Lab, Arizona Folklore and Official State Balladeer of the state of Arizona, DeGrazia, Gammons Gulch, Sabino Canyon and many, many other locations. AND we always stop for lunch.
On January 11, 2020,
Tucson Auto Museum at 990 So. Cherry.
On Jan. 11, 10 members toured the Tucson Car Museum, a personal collection of beautifully restored antique and classic cars, including a 1913 Ford “Tin Lizzie” and a DeLorean as well as a gorgeous Pierce Arrow, Hollywood’s favorite at one time. Then we enjoyed lunch at Cattletown Steakhouse.
If you were able to attend, and took a photo or two please upload them using the form below. We will post them for everyone to see. Thank you
Tennis Shoe Tour of Tucson Int'l Airport.
On March 25 at 9 a.m., we have scheduled the group for the tour, a maximum of 15. It is a behind-the-scenes look at the airport, including baggage handling, terminal operations and the commercial airport ramp. These are held monthly but quickly book up so we will take the first 15 who register, then adjust from a cancellation list after that. Please sign up individually so we keep the numbers right.
We have 11 of the 15 spaces filled for the Airport tour on March 25 at 9 a.m. Of course there may be cancellations but I hope not too many. Linda will keep a backup list if there are other people signed up.
Let Linda know ASAP if you wish to go.
Pecan Grove Orchard Tour at Green Valley Pecan Co.
As of January 15th, when Linda tried to book 6 of us for the Pecan Tour in May, it was filled. They opened up additional tours of 20 each on March 6 and April 3 at 10:45. She booked the 6 of us for April 3, so there are 14 left there and I'm not sure on March 6.
The cost is $12 plus tax per person. The tour will begin at the Pecan Store where you will receive a bottle of water and a snack to start the ride. A school bus will take us to the orchard where a farm tractor and wagon will take us on a 1 hour ride through the orchard where we will see the stages of the pecans' growing process under the trees. When we return to the Pecan Store we will have a pecan sampling experience.
Since spaces are limited, I suggest each person go online at PecanStore.com to register for the tour and pay the fee.
