Please contact The Days Inn (406-646-7656) directly to make your own reservations. They will hold the rooms for 30 days prior to our arrival date (Aug. 2nd). The rate is 194.99 + tax with a 24 hr. cx policy.
Saturday we will proceed through Yellowstone Park and lunch in Cook City. Following lunch our group will cross the Cutter Pass at 8000’. The arrival to Red Lodge will be followed with check in at The Red Lodge Inn (406-446-2030). Check in is at 3 PM. Rates are as follows:

Our first outing of 2013 was April 28th when we joined the Hyalite club at the Cardwell gas station around 11:00 a.m. TSC had nine cars & 16 people, while Bozeman had seven cars & 14 people. The 30 of us then went on to Butte and the Metals Bar & Grill for lunch where we were met by a Butte couple. Following lunch, we drove to Philipsburg for a stop for dessert & shopping. A nice day for a drive that early in the season.
