We all live through the keyboards when its cold out this way we can all do a fun get together before the winter really hits hard.. So here is the info you are looking for.

The Best Western Plus – Newport News Inn & Suites. It’s near the airport and Patrick Henry Mall (good neighborhood) and is 5 miles from the museum. Group rates are available but come with some guarantees. Call Karan (pronounced Car-On) at 866-833-2378 and mention you’re with the “Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club” Group.
