Hosts: John & Elaine Haid
A cruise on the lake is planned aboard the Chautauqua Belle that includes a meal. This event has a maximum number of attendees, so be sure to sign up early.
September 8 A Tour of Grand Island
Hosts: Dennis & Del Upton
The LER September event will be making a run to discover what Grand Island is all about. Seeing as the ferry no longer runs, you will need to use a bridge, and a toll will be incurred. If you haven't traveled on Grand Island in awhile (and never watch the news) you will learn that there are no longer any toll booths. The following information should be helpful for you when using the toll-less system that is in place.
First, if you have an E-Z pass, bring the transponder with you and put it on the dash while going under the "readers" that are encountered as you come off the bridge onto Grand Island. If you have E-Z pass, you should check to see if the license plate for your classic car is listed on your account. You can list up to 6 plates per account. If not, the transponder should still work. However, if it doesn't, your plate will be scanned and you will receive a bill in the mail in 4-6 weeks. Second, if you don't have an E-Z pass, drive right through the scanning area and the "readers" will read you plate. You will receive a bill in 4-6 weeks. Finally, if you receive a bill in the mail, PAY IT IN A TIMELY FASHION. The fines for unpaid toll costs accumulate quickly. Any questions, contact Dennis Upton at uptonogood29@roadrunner.com.
