SAMOA Lighthouse Tour
on the Kitsap Peninsula and Jefferson County
September 17, 2022
Unfortunately, this event has been postponed. We hope it can be rescheduled in 2023.
SAMOA will be touring two lighthouses, Point No Point and Point Wilson.
We have the opportunity of staying overnight at Point Wilson in the vacation rentals provided by the United States Lighthouse Society (USLHS) .
We’ll be meeting at McDonald’s, 10977 NE State Hwy, Kingston, WA. Plan to leave around 10:40 a.m. as the Kingston Ferry from Edmonds should arrive around 10:05 a.m.
We will drive to Hansville and visit Point No Point Light Station and tour the inside of the Lighthouse. From there we will drive through picturesque Port Gamble then cross the famous Hood Canal Bridge into Jefferson County meandering towards Point Wilson Light Station.
At Point Wilson, the US Lighthouse Society (USLHS) has two vacation rentals one being a 4 bedroom house has 3 bedrooms with queen beds an one bedroom with two single beds and the other is in the original keepers quarters which has two bedrooms with queen beds upstairs. SAMOA has been offered these accommodations for NO CHARGE but will gladly accept donations. In fact, both Lighthouse friends groups will be happy to receive donations, so please bring $ cash. Thanks !
At this point we will be on our own for lunch. If I had an idea of how many folks we will have, I’ll try to arrange a place to eat as Port Townsend has many great places. For those staying overnight, dinner and breakfast will be on our own unless we are able to organize something.
It will be on a first come basis for those who wish to stay overnight. Please e-mail me your preference of either Queen up-stairs or Queen down-stairs.
For those members who will not be riding the ferry from Edmunds perhaps I could get a volunteer to organize a meet point and drive around to Kingston.

6th Annual SW Idaho All British Field Meet
Hello Seattle Area Mini Owners Association friends!!
We are excited to be hosting our 6th annual Southwest Idaho All British Field Meet (SWIABFM) (with a 2-year hiatus due to COVID) this September 18th with a reception on the 17th. We would love for you to join us!
Once again, the show will be held at the Village at Meridian in Meridian, Idaho. This unique venue is simply spectacular, especially for a car show, with a beautiful fountain, specialty store-lined streets, restaurants and a movie theater. Adding to all of this, you will be thoroughly entertained by listening to the fabulous West Abbey Road (Beatles tribute band) perform and also get to see and hear the Boise Highlanders pipe, drum and dance corp. Come for the show on Sunday or make it an exploration trip around the Treasure Valley. We will find exploration ideas for things to see and do on our website.
It is British classic car owners like yourselves and club members across the northwest that make these shows exciting and successful, and we would enjoy you being a part of our event. The people who register and attend the show have the opportunity to support our local charity, the Meridian Food Bank, with donations of cash and/or food items. Help us promote the show. If any of your members are on IG, they and their friends and families can share information about the show. If you already have us on your calendar, website and in your newsletter, we appreciate your support.
