Description

Come on out and join in the fun with our neighbors to the south - The Chesapeake Bay Chapter. We will be visiting two great museums in the Gettysburg area. We will start with, the "Best New Museum" in the country, as voted on by USA TODAY
10Best readers. The museum, Beyond the Battle, tells the remarkable story of ordinary eyewitnesses and their extraordinary experiences before, during, and after the Civil War. Through twelve interactive exhibit galleries packed with rare artifacts, the museum explores the story of Gettysburg like you've never seen or heard it before. Caught in the Crossfire, the museum’s premier exhibit, is an immersive experience that uses cutting-edge technology to place visitors inside a meticulously reconstructed farmhouse during the Battle of Gettysburg. Visitors will see, hear, and feel what it was like for one Gettysburg family to be overrun by invading forces and trapped behind enemy lines. Beyond the Battle Museum is located inside the new home of the Adams County Historical Society at 625 Biglerville Road, less than one mile north of the center of Gettysburg. The price is $14 for 65 and older. $15 general admission . $10 grades k –12

Our second museum will be a favorite for some members. We will be traveling north of Gettysburg on RT US 15 to the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing at 100 Baltimore Rd, York Springs, PA 17372 At the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, they preserve and interpret the history of American motor racing, specifically in Pennsylvania and surrounding regions. Their mission is to educate and engage visitors about the motorsports experience. There are many race cars and memorabilia throughout the building. You won’t find a Hudson on the floor, but there is a Hornet 308 Twin H engine on display. This is a free event, though a donation is accepted.
SCHEDULE OF EVENT:
10:00 AM -- Meet at the "Beyond the Battle" museum, 625 Biglerville Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325. Each person will pay his/
herself. Admission is $14 plus tax for age 65 or over, $15 + tax general admission, $10 + tax for youth (grades k—12). (No

We will park our Hudsons together in the Museum's parking lot, and hold an informal meet there while touring the Museum.
4:00 PM -- Museum closes.
Please try to drive your Hudson, even if it may not be in tip-top shape. We will publicize the meet and we hope to attract people who are curious about Hudsons! We're always hopeful of recruiting members to the H-E-T, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Chesapeake Bay Chapter. Event will be held, rain or shine (except for extreme emergencies). If you can't bring your Hudson, at least arrive in a Brand-X and enjoy these museums in the company of your Hudson friends!
If you have any questions before the event or on the day of the event you may contact Jon Battle from the Chesapeake Bay
Chapter at (703) 986-8785 . You may also contact Bill Royer at (814) 937-5571 from the Pennsylvania Dutch Chapter. Another
way to find answers to your questions would be to check Chesapeake Bay’s webpage at cbc.hetclub.org under calendar.
Hopefully, we will see you on this great event day! Get those Hudsons out if you got them, or come in a brand X !
