2019 Cruise Oregon Registration Form







Cruise Oregon "Sea The S Car Go!" March Newsletter   


It appears that Spring has sprung! Those of us in Oregon have been getting some pretty nice days - interspersed with our normal, lovely, Oregon rain.

I wanted to remind you all that registration closes on April 30th, so if you have been sitting on the fence about sending yours in, ya might want to think about getting off that fence! :-)

 For those of you that have already registered, remember to make your hotel reservations as the hotels will release the rooms on May 1st.

We are still working on meals and activities. There will be a shop/garage tour in Bend, and for those of you that are interested, you will be able to make your own glass float, fluted bowl, paperweight, or votive candle holder in Lincoln City. You can read more about it at:


And don't forget we will be doing a dinner jet boat trip on the Rogue River in Grants Pass. That's ALWAYS a good time!

Our informal meet and greet will be Friday night, July 12th, at the Mt. Hood Community College automotive shop. We are still firming up the meal plan for that night.

See ya next month!   



Cruise Oregon "Sea The S Car Go!" February Newsletter

Hi Everyone!

Time marches on so fast, and here we are almost to the end of the second month of the year! Spring will be here before you know it, and we will have those cars all spiffed up and out on the road again.

As of this month's meeting, we have 36 registered for the cruise, with 17 Route 26 Cruisers, and 3 Newbies. If you haven't sent you registration in yet, you might want to get on that. Registration closes the end of April, and we will release our held hotel rooms at that time. You can print out the registration form from the website (www.cruiseoregon.com) or let us know and we will get one off in the mail to you.

Thank you to the people who responded to my question about the Culinary Institute last month, and we would like to ask again if anyone else would be interested in seeing a cooking demonstration? Just reply to this email if you might be interested and we will look into it more.

We have been working on the dinner plans in each town, and things are starting to fall into place. 

We will be offering the jet boat/dinner cruise again in Grants Pass. That has always been a favorite, and in Florence, did I mention that we will be having a bonfire on the beach with smores???? Sounds like a lot of fun!

See y'all next month!



Cruise Oregon "Sea The S Car Go!" January Newsletter   


  Hope you all had a great holiday season, and Santa brought you everything you wished for!

Registration forms are starting to come in, and we now have 31 signed up for the cruise, with 16 Route 26 Cruisers and 3 newbies.

Our Friday night meet and greet is all confirmed. We will be getting together at Mt. Hood Community College to eat and tour their automotive program shop. Learn all about the program, and possibly even meet some of the students. One of the things that the Route 26 Cruisers does is sponsor a scholarship for that program each year. 

We are still in the planning stages on meals and things to do in each town, so I will fill you all in more as things get more firmed up. One thing we would like some input in:

There is a Culinary Center in Lincoln City can plan a cooking experience for our group if we are interested. It would be for a fee, and probably a couple hours long. They would cook a meal, using all locally sourced ingredients, and after watching the presentation, you would get to eat the meal and get the recipes.  We would like a show of hands, please. If you would be interested in possibly doing this, could you please reply to this email and let me know? If we have enough interest, we will look into it more. You can read more about it here:


Talk to you all next month!

Cruise Oregon November Newsletter




How's everyone doing? Thanksgiving is only a week away, and your committee wishes you and yours a day full of food, fun, and family.

Planning is coming along on the 2019 Cruise Oregon. We now have hotels firmed up so I can share where we will be going. The cruise is approx. 730 miles, and will stay in the state of Oregon.  It will be all two night stays again this year in four cities: Bend, Grants Pass, Florence and Lincoln City. So we will be traveling through Central Oregon, Southern Oregon and the up the coast, which will give us a taste of every Oregon climate. As always, activities will be planned along the way.

We also came up with 2019's  mascot and catch phrase. The mascot will be the snail, and the phrase will be "Sea The S car Go!"

Kerry is doing OK - nothing really new to report, and he is still seeing a lot of doctors and working hard on getting well.

We will not be having a meeting in December, but watch your mailboxes for your registration form. They will be coming sometime in December.

 Happy Thanksgiving!



Cruise Oregon October Newsletter


Happy Fall!

The night's are getting chillier, but we in the NW have been enjoying an Indian Summer with temps in the 70's for the last couple weeks. It's been wonderful, and gives us more time to enjoy the Fall colors, since it isn't stormy and rainy and knocking all the leaves off the trees. Still good cruisin' weather so far as well!

The committee met again last night and the whole meeting was about deciding where Cruise Oregon will go next year. We had 5 routes to choose from, so we mapped them out, and discussed each one, then voted to come up with one. I can now tell you that Route #2 was the winner and we will be staying in Oregon next year.

Many people have been asking about Kerry, and he wants you all to know that he is hanging in there, and still working hard on his recovery. He's been doing a lot of cardio rehab and doctoring, so he is never bored! He really appreciates everyone's concern, cards, and calls. We'll update you each month on how he is doing.

Save the dates: July 13-21st, 2019.

Happy Halloween, everyone. More details next month, once we check into motels and confirm the towns we will be visiting.
