Route 66 Fun Run

September 30, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Route 66

 

Do you love driving, socializing, great food, and the Eagles? Then come join us for a group drive up to Winslow, Arizona for great photo opportunities at Standin’ on the Corner Park commemorating the song “Take It Easy“, written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, and, most famously, recorded by the Eagles.

Don’t Forget: Hat, Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Water

Check-in at 8:00am; Driver’s Meeting at 8:15am:
Shell Fuel Station
17125 E Shea Blvd
Fountain Hills, AZ 85268

The group will depart, caravan style, promptly at 8:30am and head up AZ-87 N to Flagstaff, AZ through Payson, AZ, with a stop for fuel and a restroom break at the Shell station by The Home Depot, just north of Payson past the roundabout. From there, we will continue up to the The Turquoise Room Restaurant, via AZ-87 N.

 

The Turquoise Room is one of the southwest’s unique restaurants, providing a mesmerizing interpretation of Arizona food. Treat yourself at this hidden oasis and discover a wonderful road restaurant and explore Winslow hotel – La Posada.  Designed in the late 1920s for Fred Harvey by architect Mary Colter, who considered it her masterpiece, the hotel was closed for 40 years before being fully and lovingly restored and reopened in 1998. Near a busy rail line but surrounded by very pleasant gardens, the luxurious hotel is also home to a stylish cocktail bar and one of the finest restaurants for miles.

 

There will be a drive leader, as well as a secondary group coordinator, to keep the group together and help ensure safe travels for our members and the general public.

Please RSVP to Joe Dawson via email HEREno later than September 28th, in order to reserve your spot for the event.
