2013 Escape Trailer Rally - Wine Tour

Hello Everyone,

I have again contacted OK Wine tours and they have agreed to send a bus to the campground for us.

They will pick up at 10am on both Friday and Saturday. The bus then travels throughout Osoyoos visiting several wineries. Arriving/Leaving every 30min and you can ask at any time to be returned to the campground.

Last year we were the largest group they had on both days so they gave us a bus and driver. He drove us to 6 different wineries (Our Choice) and then when we asked we returned to the campground.

If we have a large enough group we can have the same opportunities as last year. The cost is $55 which includes your wine bags.

Hope to see everyone there!

Tammy

Hi Reace, funny you should mention this. Annette and I were talking the other day and she was going to offer up organizing a wine tour for our fellow escapers partaking in the rally. Looks like you have it well in hand!!

Regards

Scott

That would be Tammy doing the leg work on this. Reace is just kept around for fixing things at the Rally.

If we can make it out Thursday night, or at least get there early on Friday, I think I will try to make it on Friday's tour.

Sorry about that,

If I we can get an idea of how many people are interested in participating in the Wine Tour on Friday or Saturday it would be great.

This way we know how many buses or pick ups to schedule each day.

Pam and I would like to sample the local refreshments on Friday. That would give us Saturday to recuperate!

I am hoping to try to make it out to do the Friday tour, and if so would be glad to watch your furkids on Saturday. Either way, not sure I would go on the Saturday anyway, especially if there is a bocce tourney, so we could likely watch them either way. I will know more on timing closer to the rally.

We would possibly need a sitter for Jasper on Friday if we both go on the tour, if anyone is interested.
