Pre-Meet in Port Angeles still on for June 28, 2020
from Greg Birch, SAMOA
I’m throwing open all our doors for SAMOA the day before Mini Meet West. Call it PRE-MEET ON THE PENNINSULA.
On Sunday June 28 I will open the shop, a place with spares, a warm fire and lots of tools to prepare for the run ahead. My neighbor has a lift if necessary and anyone with a Mini that would like detailing or need some minor mechanicals is welcome to come and hang out. Along with anyone else who’d like to help, watch or otherwise enjoy.
We will have a barbecue going with probably salmon, drinks and basic Costco sides.
It’s at 383 N Bagley creek Road, just off Hwy 101 between Sequim and Port Angeles. It is on a gravel road so drive slow and be careful.
If things get settled and there are enough mini’s interested we can do a short evening run leaving around 5-6pm and visit some highlights around the peninsula, returning in two hours around 8pm. This should allow for good light and photos. This is all WEATHER PERMITTING of course.
For accommodations in or near Port Angeles I recommend:
Log Cabin Resort, 360-928-3325, 3183 E Beach Rd
Olympic Lodge 360-452-2993, 140 S Del Guzzi Dr
Port Angeles Inn, 360-452-9285, 111 E 2nd St (Port Angeles Inn is the best bang for the buck)
Red Lion Hotel, 360-452-9215, 221 N Lincoln St
Also, room for camping and a few rooms available at the Birch estate. If interested, contact Greg, canine (at) olypen.com.
Also there is a new hotel being built at 7 Cedars Casino opening mid-June that will probably be overlooked by many travelers. The casino has lodging, entertainment, fuel, food and drinks.
