What is NER’s Annual Spring Ramble, aside from the obvious: 130+ Porsches (some Ramblers do drive vehicles other than Porsches), good friends, good food and a weekend at a top-notch resort hotel?

You’ll arrive Friday (or earlier at our low rate) on your own, meet up with other early arrivers if you’re one, and begin your social and partying activities. On Friday from 5:00-6:00 PM we’ll enjoy a wine and hors d’ouvres reception in the Bay Point Ballroom at The Samoset, a Luxurious Coastal Maine Resort. You’re on your own for Friday dinner. Then we’ll all convene at 7:00 AM on Saturday in the Knox County Ballroom for registration, a Continental Breakfast, drivers’ meeting and be on the road by 8:45 AM heading to our lunch at the Point Lookout via scenic back roads in ME. Following that respite we’ll follow an equally fun, back roads return to the Samoset Resort, or if you prefer to get back sooner to begin your partying, massage, hike or whatever simply take the direct route that we’ll supply.

For you fi rst timers – a hearty welcome. Your registration packet will include a detailed route to and from our lunch stop that Joyce and I have travelled many times revising and correcting. Unlike most other group tours, we drive on our own (not in lock-step with a leader) though usually in pods. Stop at an antique shop or photo op when you want and pick up the next pod coming down the road. Don’t like the pod you’re in, pull off and join the next pod.

At 6:00 PM we’ll meet for cocktails and hors d’ouvres in the Bay Point Ballroom followed by a plated dinner in the Knox County Ballroom and more socializing on your own after dinner. Sunday morning is a full, hot, buff et breakfast after which you’re on your own again to head home or stay longer and enjoy the resort.

We’re again sponsored by the good guys at European Performance Engineering in Natick, MA – 508.651.1316 ; give them a call for anything from an oil change to a full street to track conversion.

Remember, this is a tour. If you want to drive imprudently, pretending you are racing or auto-crossing, do it on your own time, NOT DURING THE RAMBLE. It will not be tolerated.
