When: Sunday, July 23 2017 @ 10:00 AM
Event Type: LVMOC Club Event
Where:

Weis Market at Cedar Crest Plaza

1500 North Cedar Crest Blvd
Allentown, PA (Location HERE)

Leaders: David & Janice Sell

THE FORECAST AS OF 10 A.M. TODAY, 7/22, IS FOR 50% CHANCE OF SHOWERS TOMORROW, MOST PROBABLY IN THE P.M.  MOST OF THOSE WHO HAVE SIGNED UP STILL WANT TO GO, SO, WE'RE GONNA DO IT!!.

  

We are bringing back a favorite event that we haven't done for a couple of years... the Un-Polar Bear Drive!  As most of you know, every year on January 1, some of our more adventurous members head out for a top-down drive in all but the worst winter conditions. The Un-Polar Bear drive is the summer version of the New Year's Day event, where hardy folks gather with their winter gear stored in their trunks, including ski hats, mitts, hooded sweatshirts, wool scarves, shovels, maybe even the occasional snow blower, and then dress and pose in that gear while baking under the hot sun for a photo shoot. That is followed by a shedding of gear and a run that includes curves and cones ... Ice Cream cones that is (after all, we must involve something icy Mr. Green).

 

The drive will begin at the south end of the Weis Market parking lot in the Cedar Crest Shopping Plaza, 1500 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown.  We will re-visit are some of the roads from the 2017 Polar Bear event as well as some nice twisties from previous Un-Polar Bear drives.  There will be a quick "necessity" break at the Hawk Mountain visitors' center, after which we will zoom onward to our stop at Heisler's Cloverleaf Dairy, near Tamaqua, for treats that should be appropriate for what will hopefully be a warm, sunny day.  We will finish the event with a late lunch at the Hometown Diner, in Breinigsville (the same restaurant at which we ended the 2017 Polar Bear drive).  The drive should take about 3 1/2 to 4 hours, depending on the length of the stops.

 

Meet at 10:00 a.m. and assemble for a 10:15 a.m. Group Photo in our winter gear.  A drivers' meeting will follow with departure by 10:30 a.m.  Rest rooms should be available in the Weis Market for those who wish to "prepare" one last time before the drive.

 

Finally, at this event, the Club will again be accepting contributions for donation to area animal shelters.  Iva and Pat will let us know for which specific facility we will collect the contributions.  This charitable program has been very successful for the Club this year... let's keep up the good work!
