Please read carefully… when you rsvp, please indicate if you will be attending the breakfast and how many and if you are planning on going on the Chili Run and how many.  We need two separate headcounts as there are two distinct segments to our event.  If you have rsvp’ed already, please do so again using the link at the bottom of the page with the appropriate information.  Deadline to respond is October 9th. 

This event is RAIN OR SHINE!  We have an enclosed pavilion so if it’s cold and rainy, you can get out of the weather.

Join the Niagara Region PCA for a fun scenic drive to Letchworth State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the East”.

8:30am – Meet at  Garber Porsche of Rochester, 3955 W. Henrietta Rd., Rochester, NY 14623. They are very graciously hosting breakfast for us again this year.  We need a headcount for Garber, deadline for responding is October 9th. 

9:30am– Departure for Letchworth State Park. We will tour the park’s Portageville entrance, where the event will technically end.  You may continue through the park at your leisure and stop at the South Pavilion at the North end of the park.

The park entry fee is $10. Bring cash.

1:15-3:45pm – North Highbanks Pavilion at Letchworth

Everything has to be removed from the shelter when we leave. Anything you bring into the park, you must take back out with you.  Letchworth is a “carry in – carry out” park. There will be no trash pick up after we leave. We would appreciate it if you would take leftovers and extras back home with you. We would like to leave a good impression with the park personnel. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

When visiting a state park, keep the following guidance in mind:

  • Follow guidance to maintain social distance including signage, distance markers, directional arrows, and physical barriers;
  • Fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks, however unvaccinated individuals should continue to follow current mask guidelines and signage.
    These are the most current guidelines issued in September 2021

If you prefer to skip the breakfast but would still like to participate in the drive, please arrive by 9:15 so that you can attend the Driver’s Meeting.

Bring your hiking shoes, and camera.

Please RSVP to Renee Sliwinski.  Again please indicate if you are attending the breakfast and/or Chili Run and how many.  If you responded previously, please send your response to Renee again.  RSVP deadline is October 9th, to allow for final preparations.
