LAST CALL for Extreme Early Bird Twilight Tour of D.C.!

Whether you can make it to the 2011 Convention or not, you’re invited to go on the Tourmobile’s Twilight Tour of D.C. on Thursday, April 14, 2011. You’ll need to claim your spot by 11:59pm EDT, March 31, 2011 if you want to join in on the extreme early bird fun!

Here’s the schedule:

  • 4:15 PM- Anyone already at the Crystal City Sheraton meets in the main lobby to travel by METRO to Union Station. All others arrive at Union Station on your own (if you need assistance getting there, see below about letting us know).
  • 5:00 PM – Dinner at Union Station in Washington, D.C. (your choice from a wide variety, at your cost)
  • 6:15 PM – Gather at the Center Cafe area of Union Station and begin picking up your tickets from the members of the Planning Team
  • 6:30 PM – You may begin boarding the Tourmobile buses parked outside of Union Station. They will not guarantee that we will get seats on the same bus. However, if we are all there boarding early we will be first in line to choose the seats that we want.
  • 7:00 PM – The Tourmobile Twilight Tour leaves Union Station (don’t miss the bus)! The tour is described as driving in the National Mall area to point out the sights that are visible and specially lit at night. In addition to what we will drive by on the bus, there will be stops at the following places:
    • Jefferson Memorial – 20 minutes
    • Franklin D Roosevelt Memorial – 25 minutes
    • Lincoln Memorial (to include Korean War Memorial and Vietnam War Memorials) – 40 minutes
    • World War II Memorial – 25 minutes

    The stop times are approximate. There will be a live narrator on the bus who will exit the bus with us to further give information and interesting tidbits about the sights. The length of the tour is between 3 and 3.5 hours.

  • 10:00-10:30 PM – The Tourmobile returns to Union Station. We will escort people back to their hotels via Metro or private car as necessary.

We were able to get group pricing and the charge for participating in this event is $30 via PayPal. If you would like to purchase tickets, please email us at bcindc2011@gmail.com. Payment must be received no later than 11:59pm EDT, March 31, 2011.
