Heygo Pre-Thanksgiving Tour
11:30am - 12:30pm
Join us for a pre-Thanksgiving "live-streamed" mystery tour, perhaps to Brighton England. Several GBCRA members have recommended that we hire a particular tour guide, Bony at Brighton, and ask her to either take us to a traditional English roast beef dinner at a local pub, or to a traditional English Tea. We are negotiating with Heygo to make this happen. If we are unable to "go" to Brighton, we will find an alternative that is just as great.
