Well the Web site is up and running and I'm passing along the info I was given, If you have not been to one of these events I'm telling you you've missed a great time, so don't let this one slip by, and for a small sum you can take your car out for 3 laps on the world famous "Watkins Glen Racetrack". Believe me that in it's self is worth it, ton's of wineries an easy drive away,  great scenery and even greater people.

Brett.


Subject: 2008 Jensen Internationals East -- Watkins Glen


Jensen Friends:

 Laura and I, and our planning committee are pleased to announce arrangements for the annual USA East meeting of the Jensen faithful.  We’ve scheduled the event for June 18-22, at Watkins Glen, NY. http://www.gowaterfalling.com/waterfalls/watkins.shtml .    Lodging is provided by the historic Seneca Lodge, http://www.senecalodge.com approximately three miles from the racetrack at Watkins Glen International.  The Seneca Lodge was selected by the committee to immerse our membership in the Watkins Glen racing experience, as it has served host to drivers, crews and racing enthusiasts since the initiation of road racing at the Glen in 1948.  The accommodations at the Seneca Lodge are more rustic in theme than those featured at previous events.  The motel rooms are clean but spartan and do not boast telephones, hair dryers or coffee makers.  Those given to an experience more akin to camping may instead choose to rent from among several rustic cabins offered at a reduced rate.  The cabins are proximate to the motel rooms.  Rooms are likely to go quickly at the Seneca Lodge and may only be reserved by telephone or snail mail. I have found that calling between 9:30-11:00 AM Eastern Time maximizes the probability of reaching Jack who will happily take your reservation.  Please be sure to note that you’re with the Jensen group. 

A website for the event is up at:http://web.sbu.edu/jensen

 The website is a work in progress, so please check back often.

The tentative schedule of events can be found at the website, but highlights include:

n       Paced laps at Watkins Glen International, including lunch at the racetrack (not part of registration fee)
