Please purchase one REQUIRED - Scenic Drive ticket (so we can collect your vehicle information) per vehicle/order and one REQUIRED Empire Mine Tour & Lunch ticket for each person in the vehicle.

As we are a Porsche Club, this event is limited to Porsches only. If you wish to drive a vehicle other than a Porsche, please contact the Tour Leader.

Sign-up closes on May 20, 2019. Priority will be given to PCA Diablo members but will open up to all PCA members by May 10, 2019. Please book your hotel rooms prior to April 25, 2019. After this date the reserved room block will be release.

Join us for a tour to Grass Valley and the Empire Mine (source of the gold that paid for the Filoli Estate in Woodside and site of our April 6, 2019 tour). Upon arrival at the Empire Mine State Historic Park, we will enjoy a box lunch at picnic tables in the park. From 2 - 4 PM we will have a private guided 2-hour tour of the Estate and Mine Yard. Afer checking into our rooms and enjoying the wine reception at the Grass Valley Courtyard Suites (Suites), we will have dinner from a selection of restaurants in Grass Valley and nearby Nevada City. Following breakfast at the Suites, you may tour the area before heading home, or you may want to extend your stay over the Memorial Day Weekend.

We have arranged a block of 15 rooms, breakfast, and a wine reception at the Grass Valley Courtyard Suites at a discounted rate from $176 - $239 plus tax. This is out of pocket. You will need to call (530) 272-7696 to book your own room. These rooms will be released on April 25, 2019. Other accomodations may be available but this is the Memorial Day weekend and rooms in the area will fill up quickly. I encourage you to make your arrangements ASAP.

Reservations will be made at several restuarants in the area. Sign-ups for those restaurants will occur prior to the tour of the mine while we are having lunch. Dinner will be out of pocket.
