Scenic Drive - Maryland Covered Bridges- Sat, Oct 22

This trip will be an all-day adventure, probably requiring folks to leave home early in the morning to arrive at our starting point on time, and probably getting home close to or after sunset. This will be a sunshine-only trip, if it's rainy we'll cancel and try again in the spring.

We'll meet at the Cecil Bank (4434 Telegraph Road, Elkton, MD 21921) near the intersection of MD 213 and MD 273, near the Maryland/Delaware Border.

We'll depart from there at 10:00 AM, and head to the nearby Foxcatcher Farm Covered Bridge. From there we'll make a U-turn and begin a 129 mile, five+ hour trip across the state. We'll visit the Gilpins covered bridge, cross the Susquehanna on US 1, make our way to the Jericho covered bridge near Gunpowder Falls, and meander our way west through Baldwin, Hunt Valley (where we'll stop for lunch at Barrett's Grill), Glyndon, Finksburg, Libertytown, Walkersville, until we're north of Frederick, where we'll find the Utica, Loys Station, and Roddy Road covered bridges. We end up near Highway 15 in Thurmont.

Total time for this is six hours including fifteen minute stops at the bridges and time for lunch.

MSCW Shirts Online

MSCW logo apparel can now be ordered online through Landsí End Business Outfitters. We have an e-store at the following URL:

MSCW Shirts Online

The e-store allows you to order items at your convenience. Thanks to Bud Donner for suggesting that we use Landsí End. They have been good to deal with, they sell quality stuff, and ordering should be a smooth process for everyone.

Landsí End has a wide variety of items that can be embroidered with the club logo. For a full selection check out their business outfitters website: http://ocs.landsend.com

Landsí End seems to rotate sales & specials on a weekly basis (item discounts, free shipping, or free embroidery, etc.) so keep an eye on their site if you want to save a few bucks.

Iíve added a variety of items to the e-store already, but if you see something on their general business outfitters site that youíd like me to add to the e-store so you can have it embroidered, let me know. Send item requests and general inquiries to Scott W. or come find me at a club event.
