Here we go again!

For a sixth time; wine lovers! Gear heads! Nostalgiacs! Do you like vintage wooden boats, vintage unlimited hydroplanes, and Chelan area wines? How about staying at a premium Chelan waterfront resort for a bargain price? This is the PSMC event for you.

Join us for a fun three-day weekend tour as we venture off to Lake Chelan for the Mahogany & Merlot festival held in Chelan. We will be staying at Campbell’s Waterfront Resort, walking distance to the festival and hydro pits. The festival features wine, a vintage car display and many vintage wooden pleasure craft on display, some offering rides. The big attraction though is the unlimited hydroplanes from the Unlimited Hydroplane Museum. Remember Miss Bardahl, Thriftway, Oh Boy! Oberto, Hawaii Kai? Experience the roar of these piston-engine boats as they run around the lake course. We also are planning a driving wine tour of the many wineries in the area, led by wine-extraordinaire, Ray Houghton.

We will be meeting at 10 a.m., at the Chevron station located at the east end of Monroe on Hwy 2. Bring your lunch for Friday. We have a planned lunch stop at Tunnel Hill Winery on the way to Chelan. We also will stop at Tsillan Cellars while en-route to Campbell’s resort. We are still working ideas for Saturday’s activities so stay tuned. It will be fun.

Sound like fun? Here is what you need to do; RSVP for the event then call Campbell’s Resort 800-553-8225 or 509-682-2561 (room prices about $165 per night) to reserve your room for Oct. 6th and 7th. Mention “Mahogany & Merlot” to get the discount. 

Don’t wait, this festival is growing exponentially. Campbell’s has several rooms blocked for this event, but is offered to all festival participants (not just us) so it will fill up fast. For any questions, please contact one of the hosts.
