CLUB TOUR TO RHINEBECK
Hi, all. Our annual tour to Rhinebeck this year is Sunday, May 5th. Same routine as in past years. We depart from the Mobil/Dunkin Donuts off Exit 10 (Miller Rd) on Interstate 90. The Mobil/Dunkin is to the right off the exit and can be seen as you exit the highway. We will depart from there at around 8:30. I suggest getting there a little early if you want to have a donut or coffee or something. 
We leave the Mobil/Dunkin and proceed down I90 to Exit 12 which puts on US 9 southbound. We will continue on 9 south, onto 9H south, then back onto 9 south to the Rhinebeck fairgrounds. We usually make a pit stop on the way down. At the fairgrounds there are signs to direct you to the proper lane for show cars, then it splits into those that are pre-registered and those that are not. Buick Club parking is an actual class, albeit non-judged, over by the grandstand. Tell the gate attendant you want Buick Club parking if you want to park with us. Once there the day is yours to enjoy as you see fit. For more info on the show itself access this link: https://rhinebeckcarshow.com/.
Important: If you are going to join us for the ride down please let me know so I don't leave you behind. Also, if there are older cars we will adjust our speed to their comfort level so if you find it is too slow for you feel free to scoot on by.  Please respond via email or my cell phone 518-496-1674.

Like Buicks? Want to meet like-minded individuals? Then consider joining the Upstate New York Chapter of the Buick Club of America. We are based in the Capital District area but have members in the surrounding communities as well. We even have a member from the state of Vermont! We enjoy driving our cars so a lot of our activities include a driving tour of some sort. Past driving tours have taken us north to Plattsburgh, over to Stockbridge, MA, and into the mountains of Vermont. We also hold an annual cruise-in at Goldstein Buick in Albany. We use it to kick off the summer and open it to any and all cars, as it is a fundraiser for local charity. We hold a summer picnic and Christmas party with little or no cost to attending members. Our meetings are generally held in the winter months, usually the third Sunday of the month, and we try to hold them at interesting locations. Our quarterly newsletter, Upstate Update, goes out to all chapter members. And, oh yea, you will usually find some of us at the local cruise-ins in the summer. Like I said, we like to drive our cars.

If we sound like the club for you, check us out. Contact one of the officers for further information.
