Schedule of Events:
Friday July 9 Wine & cheese arrival reception (microbrews too)! Out-of-town guests arrive, formal
Arrival, reception registration begins. Unload cars, meet new friends and get reacquainted with old friends.
(registered guests) We’ll provide the wine and cheese. Please feel free to bring beer and snacks. If you’ve been
driving all day, don’t worry about it: we’ll feed you! We’ll party into the night!
Saturday, July 10 THE FIRST BIG EVENT: Arrival registration continues until 11:00 a.m. Polish and prepare
Morning cars, reunite with old friends and meet new ones, tech sessions to solve those last minute
problems and bugs, information exchange and parts swap, rides in each others microcars.
The first MicroTour departs at 11:00 a.m. for a four mile parade to the beautiful grounds of
the Larz Anderson Museum of Transportation where the cars will be arranged “on the lawn”
for spectators to admire. There will be award plaques in several categories
Late afternoon Everyone parades back to the Gould’s for the famous “Eclectic Barbecue”. Participants are
asked to bring unusual foods to share (See food details below). Previous years have
included everything from enchiladas to tuna sashimi. This is a favorite part of the weekend
activities as the only thing that this group enjoys more than cars, is the food!
Bring cookout food to share. EXTREME CREATIVITY AND ETHNIC DIVERSITY IS ENCOURAGED, PLEASE
AVOID THE STANDARD FARE! We suggest the following division of labor by last name!
A-M(bring Entrees) N-S (bring Salads or Sides) T-Z (bring Desserts)
We have had everything from tuna sashimi to Cajun swordfish. We don’t intend to prevent you from making
your favorite dish. There are also lots of local markets and deli’s to purchase things. If you prefer not to shop, add
$10.00 per person to your registration fee, and we will buy and prepare a dish for your contribution.
Evening At about 7:00 p.m., we embark on a cruise to one of the local hot spots (ice cream at Nicks’,
cruise night at Riley’s, Bubbling Brook, something like that), where we create quite a stir.
Our little cars parade in and distract the whole area as a fresh group of spectators are
fascinated by this collection of absurd little Bubblecars.
Then, back to the Gould’s as serious margaritas, general merriment and irresponsible
behavior wind down the days’ activities, as people reminisce about their initiation into the
world of microcars, and the stories of their personal acquisitions. The margaritas tend to
remove inhibitions and enhance the stories through extreme exaggeration. Poetic license
and creativity are encouraged.
Sunday, July 11 THE SECOND BIG EVENT: Brief scenic MicroTour to the Sheraton Needham Hotel, where
Morning many of our guests are staying. They have prepared a great Sunday Brunch for only
$(TBD)/person this year! The hotel will accommodate us with a special parking area to
display our vehicles. Those of you who are staying here, merely have to roll out of bed and
show up in the restaurant.
Afternoon/evening We return to the Gould’s to wind down, dunk our tired dogs into huge buckets of ICE COLD
water (“Poor Man’s Hot-Tub”), and relax with more Margaritas and Microbrews until early
evening when we depart for either authentic Peking Duck or an outdoor café with
authentic Mexican (not Tex-Mex) food. We will decide by vote of all who are still standing.
