Denny Fanale Memorial Covered Bridge Cruise
On Sunday October 28, MCCPA held the 14th Annual Denny Fanale Memorial Covered Bridge Cruise. The Cruise is dedicated to Dennis Fanale. Denny was the guy who came up with the idea for the Covered Bridge Cruise. The Denny Fanale Memorial Covered Bridge Cruise goes through the landscape of Amish Farms that make Lancaster famous including eleven to fourteen Covered Bridges. This year we had participants as far away as Ohio. Mark your Calendar. Next year’s date is October 30!
Yes, Oregon Dairy Restaurant does have Ham Balls!
Getting everyone registered and ready (after breakfast at Oregon Dairy restaurant).
The Cruise is divided into three segments. in the first segment we split the cars in to two groups that do the first segment in opposite directions. Mike Cole gives everyone directions on the first segment.
The first segment is especially fun when the two groups pass each other.
Go Pro of the two groups passing!

The second segment starts after a pit stop back at Oregon Dairy. The weather forecast promised no rain, but as with tradition we did get some showers.
Time for all the Autos to get their picture taken going through the Forry Mill Covered Bridge. We get them coming and going. Looks like a busy speed camera... Thanks to Dan for the pics and being my navigator!

The second stop is at Leisure Lanes Bowling Alley, Cruise participants brought toys and cash for the charities Leisure Lanes supports. One more segment to Ham Balls.

The last leg goes quick with everyone getting hungry.
A quick picture with Amos and we are ready for Food!
A great meal to end the day with friends. Best to not think about the err..horse exhaust under the cars. Thanks to Mike for organizing this event and to all the MCCPA members (and Dan) that helped with organizing, test drives, registration, pictures, video, and basic cat herding. We hope to see everyone next year on October 30, 2022.
