    Although we got a late start this year, we have had great drives, fabulous weather and excellent participation. However, all good things must come to an end, so we are marking the end of our season with the last official drive of the year - our annual Season Closer Drive.

    We are heading east to tour through Alberta’s Badlands. Please join us to celebrate a successful year, particularly given the circumstances. Highlights include:

    • great roads and dramatic views
    • pastoral farmland and beautiful river valleys
    • world famous badlands and dinosaur graveyard
    • crossing the mighty Red Deer River on an historic ferry
    • crossing the not-so-mighty Rosebud River on 11 bridges
    • Code Yellow stop: at the first viewpoint, 1 hour and 20 minutes after departure
    • lunch at a 107-year-old saloon in the former coal-mining metropolis of Wayne

    Lunch details: Note that depending on the size of our group, we will likely be
    eating outdoors, so come prepared for cooler weather but pray for a
    gorgeous late summer day.
    Our anticipated arrival time for lunch is between 12:30 – 1:00.

    Driving directions will be posted a week prior to the event in the "members only" section on the forum.
