  • Sun. Oct. 4 Fall Foliage Rally and Dinner
    The Hudson-Mohawk Section of the Mercedes Benz Club of America invites you to join us for the 2015 Fall Foliage Rally.
    We will be meeting at noon at the Martindale Chief Diner (a 1958 Silk City Diner) located at the Route 23 exit of the Taconic State Parkway. Come early and enjoy a late breakfast, brunch or snack at this well-known diner, or just coffee and the use of their facilities before setting out on the day's leisurely adventure.
    We plan to move out the first car at 12:30, with cars following at one minute intervals. The rally will take participants through both northern and southern portions of Columbia County. The rally route will lead eventually to the historic Copake Iron Works, where guided tours and self-guided tours are available. The rally will end at a location of picturesque vistas suitable for pictures before going in for dinner at 4:30 PM. We will dine at one of the finest restaurants in Columbia County (Swiss Hütte overlooking the slopes of Catamount Ski Area) where you can get anything from a burger to a gourmet dinner. It will be a wonderful setting for a chance to laugh about the day's route, the rally and the surprises encountered along the way.
    In general, the route from the diner heads north to Philmont, Harlemville, and Spencertown, then east to Austerlitz, south to Green River, over the mountain to Hillsdale, continuing south to Copake, and almost to Millerton before turning north to Copake Falls (Copake Iron Works) and then on up into Hillsdale.
    Each car will be provided with a turn-by-turn route booklet containing driving directions, scenery-enjoying tips, and the questions and clues for the day's just-for-fun trivia contest! Each car participating in the rally will receive a commemorative medal. Recognition for the most successful trivia teams will be awarded at dinner.
    Refreshments at the diner and the dinner will be ordered and paid for on your own. Please be sure to dress comfortably and bring water or other refreshments to enjoy during the ride and at the restaurant grounds prior to dinner. We will ask each participant at the start to provide a cell phone number, answerable in a hands-free manner or by a passenger, so that communications are available during the ride where cell service exists.
    There will be a $10.00 per car entry fee, payable when you arrive at the start. For further information and to facilitate planning, please RSVP as soon as possible by contacting Section President James Wright or Section Vice President Chuck Trimarchi. Please be prepared to provide a preferred phone or e-mail contact information in case we must reach you due to extreme weather or other unforeseen problems.
