Wyckham Seelig, Chairman of the 7th district shares the following information:

1-If you want to "Caravan" here is a website to help you determine the logistics-
2- The Tour method means we hire a bus and make accommodation reservations. Will leave on Friday morning, arriving Friday evening. Will start back to Michigan on Saturday night, spending the night somewhere near Gettysburg, PA, and returning to Michigan on Saturday.

The cost of the Caravan method is the cost for gasoline, tolls and whatever else you choose to spend on the trip (and you make your own reservations for lodging.)

The cost of the Tour is roughly:

1-Bus fare, $130 per person. (This cost is for 20 people and is a firm quote from a local bus company and can go down with more people. If we don't get 20 people, we probably won't do this.)
2-Room (DC) $119 room for the first night. Rooms are at the Sheraton, Arlington, each is a double with 2 double beds so can sleep as many as four occupants.
3-Room (Gettysburg), We haven't made reservations here yet, probably around $100 a night per room.
4-Other expenses;Any food, or other expenditures you decide to make.

Wyck says this is late planning, but the interest has only escalated recently so he's scrambling to get it done for us.

So--we need to know quickly. The hold on the rooms will expire Tuesday so they need to confirm with them and the bus company.

The web form that you can use to sign up is found at and you can sign up. If you have trouble go to or

If you can make it--Safe trip!
and God bless your efforts.........
