It’s been fifteen years since our club toured the Dinosaur Valley and we’re thinking it’s time we had that much fun again. We hope you will plan on joining us with your Model T for a fun summer tour.
Friday, July 22 – We will meet in Crossfield, unload our cars and park our trucks and trailers. From there, we will head east to Carbon for lunch and then proceed to Drumheller to the Quality Hotel (our host hotel). We will leave later in the afternoon for a trip to Wayne where we will be having a BBQ steak supper on the patio of the Last Chance Saloon. Great place for lots of pictures and fun. We will return to Drumheller for a good night’s sleep.
Saturday, July 23 – Leaving Drumheller in the morning, our first stop will be Big Valley where we will take a break for coffee and cinnamon buns. From there, we head to Stettler and check into our hotels. Later, we will gather at the Steam Train Station for a train ride to Big Valley, a roast beef supper, and return by train to Stettler. Who knows what kind of tomfoolery might be encountered on the train?!
Sunday, July 24 – This morning will be a later start – a bit of time to sleep in or tune up the T’s. We have been invited by Art and Jackie Bent to go for brunch at their cabin on Buffalo Lake. We will leave the Bent’s place in the early afternoon to continue back to Drumheller. Plan on stopping for an ice cream break in Big Valley. Sunday night supper will be on your own.
Monday, July 24 – After breakfast, we will drive to the World’s Biggest Dinosaur for pictures and a short show and shine. We will then head west and cross the Red Deer River on the Bleriot Ferry. We will continue our journey back to Crossfield, stopping in Carbon for lunch.
