2019 Fall Packard Meet and Pre-Meet Tour! Demonstrating our commitment to getting Packards on the road, on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 our club and the Sara-Mana Model A Club hosted an open tour in Sarasota. This fun driving event included several great stops including two collections, a country store and gift shop, lunch, an ice cream stop and some island hopping. Cars on the tour included several Packards, Model As, a Hudson, a '47 Ford, a Rambler, a Buick, a Mercedes and others.
The next day, Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019, Packards and people gathered at the "Wit's End" estate for great cars, people and food.

2019 Henry Joy Tour! The 12th Henry Joy Tour was held in Tallahassee, November 3rd thru 8th. 68 people and 25 great Packards were in attendance. The Packards ranged from 1924 (there were 2) thru 1956 (also 2). Participants drove their Packards an average of 100 miles daily. Some of the highlights included the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse, Wakulla Springs, Pebble Hill Plantation, Mission San Luis, Tall Timbers Research Station and numerous other fascinating places. We also visited three fabulous car collections, watched a live performance at the historic Monticello Opera House and ate like there was no tomorrow! Those who didn't bring a Packard were chauffeured in one every day, if they wished. Everyone raved about the beauty of the secluded canopy roads, the destinations and the friendly people they met and toured with during the 5-day event.
The next issue of The Caribbean Courier will include reports on the Henry Joy Tour and our Fall Meet events WITH PICTURES.
