      Join TE/AE for our mid summer gathering at the Collings Foundation in Stow, MA.

      Race of the Century
      Saturday, August 16th
      Stow, MA
      Hours: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

      An extraordinary event that pits some of the greatest technological advancements in air and ground transportation against each other in a series of "races"

      Exhibits and displays throughout the event. Races start around 1:00 PM
      Entire Facility Open Daily: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
      Gate Fee: $15 Adults / $10 Children

      What are the races? How about a horse and carriage vs. a 1905 Franklin or a Stanley Steamer? A Stutz Bearcat vs. 1909 BLERIOT? A 1937 Offy sprint car vs. a Stearman? Want more info and directions? All the answers are on the Foundation’s web site at:

      http://www.collingsfoundation.org/cf_RofC2008.htm

      In addition, I have some photos from my visit to their open house last spring (no races) at: http://www.pbase.com/sb_photos/bobstoys

      I have checked with the Foundation staff, and if we get there early enough we would probably be able to park together. So plan on being there by 10:00. Bring a picnic lunch or buy food on site. There’s plenty to see, since there is quite a collection of antique aircraft and cars. Rides in the aircraft are available for a substantial fee, but there is advanced booking. Check the web site for details if you are interested.

      Note: The races are on both Saturday and Sunday. We are going on Saturday, saving Sunday for a rain date.

      Please RSVP so I have some idea how many are coming.
