The 2017 WAPA Rally began with a Welcome Dinner for our Sponsors on October 11th in the Toolshed of The Inn at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Kent Island, MD. The Washington Automotive Press Association Board of Directors welcomed 35 of our valued partners in the automotive industry for a Farm to Table family-style dinner featuring ingredients from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Local beer and wine were served at the bar, and Blackwater Distilling was on-site for a special tasting. Smith Island Cake, Maryland’s State Dessert, was enjoyed for dessert. Thank you once again to everyone who supported the WAPA Rally. Images in this gallery were shot by photographer Jeff Bogle.
