Return of Ye Olde Shortcut
Don’t miss this year’s incarnation of Ye Olde Shortcut on November 15th! This annual event is often imitated but never recreated. Don’t miss the original driving event where YOU decide where to go. Don’t confuse Ye Olde Shortcut with the spring event Wild Willy. Ye Olde Shortcut is the original and up for grabs is the coveted and prestigious Short Cut traveling trophy. Obtain the highest possible score for the drive and have your name immortalized for posterity on the base. The trick? You have no idea what the scoring system is. Even better, you get to keep this epic award for an entire year and brag to your family, friends, and guests that yes indeed you found your way out of the North Georgia mountains and dined at the world famous Woodbridge Inn with celebrity chef Hans Rueffert! This drive is on the National Historic Registry of Goofball Drives. RSVP to the president is required for this drive. Please have your RSVP submitted by November 1.
