    3. The Best Western hotel does NOT have a restaurant for dinner, so those who wish to have dinner in a restaurant will eat in Stowe.  Joanne has more details on this and options for eating at the hotel.

    4. Please contact Joanne early in order to facilitate car-pooling and planning.  She is currently holding a block of seven rooms.  

    Directions:  The drive from 401 & DVP to Waterbury-Stowe is about 7 hours not including any delays at the border or for lunch break.  Assume 7 ~ 8 hours travel time from Toronto.  The recommended routing is to pickup Highway 30 just south of Saint-Lazare through Grand Ile, then head south to cross the border south of Philipsburg.
