Friday, 9:30–3:30, Oct. 26
Bus trip $98
Coordinator: Jim Dunphy
Tour limit: 20
What better way to spend a fall day than with cannonballs and cabernets? First, we will head to the Bull Run battlefield in Manassas, where, after spending time in the museum and electronic map, we will participate in a 45-minute ranger-led tour of the battlefield. From there, we will head to the Cracker Barrel restaurant for an old-fashioned lunch. After lunch, we will travel to the Winery at Bull Run for a tasting, followed by a tour of the beautiful grounds. At the end of the day, there will be time to purchase wines. Note: We will be walking at both the battlefield and the winery, so wear comfortable shoes. The tour will be held rain or shine, but may be altered in case of inclement weather. Due to limits on wine tasting, registration will be limited to no more than 20 participants. The fee of $98, covering bus transportation costs, driver tip, lunch, and wine tasting, is payable to OLLI at time of registration. The bus will leave promptly at 9:45 from Fair Oaks Mall parking lot 57, which is outside the circular road in front of ManTech Corp. Please be on the bus no later than 9:30. We will board the bus at 3pm to return to Fair Oaks. Registration for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis.
