Fall Outing 2018

The Finger Lakes Chapter of ACBS has arranged a guided tour of the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum followed by lunch at Bully Hill Winery -- all in Hammondsport, NY at the southern end of Keuka Lake.

The Curtiss Museum is located on Route 54 just south of the turn-off to the village.  If you're interested in early amphibious airplanes, wooden boats, early bicycles and motorcycles, autos, and pioneering women in aviation, you won't want to miss our visit.  A guided tour (arranged just for us) is scheduled to begin promptly at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 13th, with a reduced fee of $9:00 per person.  There is no limit to the group size, and guests are more than welcome.  Reservations are not required, but please let Rick Nelson (owascohawk@aol.com or 315-253-7057) know your name and number attending as soon as possible.  And on the day of the tour, please plan to arrive sufficiently before 10:00 to sign-in, etc.  In the meantime, check out the Museum's web site at glennhcurtissmuseum.org for all their exhibits including a current temporary one detailing antique firearms.

After the museum tour, members and their guests are invited to gather at Bully Hill Vineyards, high above Keuka Lake, for lunch, the view and good conversation.  Although the Vineyard does not take group reservations this late in the season, they will do their best to accommodate us.  So, please also let Rick know of your lunch-time plans as soon as possible.

Hope to see you there!
