In 2021 with all the restrictions surrounding Covid 19 we had to make some adjustments due to the strict NYS guidelines on limiting dining space to half capacity. In 2022 things have opened back up and we were thrilled to be back in Watkins Glen at the Harbor Hotel with full capacity.”
Friday, February 24, 2023 is the date for the annual awards affair with cocktail hour along with hors d’oeuvers starting at 6 PM.
