35th Annual New England Ramble
April 24 – April 26, 2020
Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, NY
Registration Opens Wednesday January 22, 2020
2020 marks the 35th year for NER’s Annual Spring Ramble, typically the region’s largest event of the year. At the Chatham Bars Inn last year, we welcomed 195 cars and 371 people to a weekend of good friends, good food, top-notch accommodations, and of course, lots of Porsche- worthy roads to travel. This year we’re looking forward to having both veteran Ramblers and first-timers join us at The Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, NY.
You’ll arrive Friday (or earlier at our attractive rate) for our evening Welcome Reception, and begin your social and partying activities before the serious driving commences on Saturday morning. My wife and I just returned from a route planning visit, and you’ll traverse many memorable 2-lane country roads thru the Catskill Mountains, and along the creeks and rivers that honeycomb the area.
After registration and breakfast Saturday morning, drivers will head out on a navigational, directions-based tour for about 3 hours before reaching our lunch destination. Following the buffet lunch, there will be another roughly 3-hour route back to The Otesaga, or a more direct route for those wishing to avail themselves of that option.
We’ll meet Saturday evening for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before enjoying our plated dinner dressed in festive attire. Sunday morning’s buffet breakfast will mark the official end of the 2020 Ramble, after which you’re on your own again to head home, or stay longer and enjoy the charms of Cooperstown.
Mark your calendar for registration opening on January 22, 2020 as this one sells out within two weeks, typically. More info to come!
