Registration opens on Thursday, March 24th at 8 AM. Register early by clicking the "Register Here" box to avoid being placed on the waiting list or not being able to register if the tour sells out early!
Update 3/27--well it did fill up early. We now have 18 people on the waitlist so I've suspended registrations. Sorry, if you wanted to go, but we just had an early rush and the tour filled up quickly. Greg
Join us for the first weekday tour of the season. This will be a short tour to view the Skagit Valley tulip fields,, hopefully at the height of their spring bloom. due to the popularity of this annual event, we are not going to even attempt to do it on a weekend! Our route will take us on the backroads up to the Skagit Valley and then through several of the tulip fields enroute to La Conner. You will be able to preview which fields look the most dazzling for an afternoon return trip to your favorite for close-up walking and gazing at the fields and the vendor displays. We will continue on to La Conner for lunch, hopefully for the first time in a long time at a single group location. Watch the MSR registration page for more details. After lunch, you will be free to shop in La Conner and/or head back out to the tulip field(s) of your choice. This tour is limited to 40 cars and will only be run once, so sign up early if you want to go.
P.S. Just a note, there is an MG Rallye scheduled for April 23rd open to all car makes. You may wish to register for that event if you want a more immersive all day event. See the registration link at: mgccnwc.com/tulip-rallye/
Since the Covid face mask mandate has been lifted, we will not be requiring any masks leaving that option up to you. However, we suggest having a mask handy in case the restaurant or any of the businesses in La Conner or any of the tulip vendors still require one.
