Getting to the GOF

Plymouth is a coastal town in Massachusetts, south of Boston. It is the site of the first Pilgrim settlement, founded in 1620. Plymouth Rock, a boulder in Pilgrim Memorial State Park, marks the place where settlers are thought to have landed on shore. The Mayflower II, a full-scale replica of the ship that carried the Pilgrims across the Atlantic, is usually anchored at the park. During the GOF the Mayflower II will not be in Plymouth. It is being refurbished during 2019.

Fees Update Info

You may notice that some of the fees listed are different than what was listed in TSO. That pesky critter "Typo" got us a couple of times. We've lowered the per person registration fees for the GOF. For two, it's now $55 (notice something -- same as the number of years that The Register has been around.) Also, the price of the Friday night dinner is now $28.00 down from $48 as shown on the TSO sheet. The printable form that can be downloaded has the correct pricing and corrected snail mail address to send registrations to.

Event Details

Everyday -- The Register will be providing light breakfast snacks in the Registration room. Coffee, doughnuts, bagels and muffins for our members.

Whale Watch -- Captain John's will be our host on a cruise to Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary on a whale watching cruise from Plymouth with a team of naturalist guides. We'll search for Cape Cod Bay's humpback, finback, minke, and pilot whales, as well as the rare, endangered right whales that can occasionally be sighted on the coast. This cruise starting point is just a short distance from our hotel.
Evening walks -- Plymouth offers many interesting tours and June should be a great time to venture out and enjoy one of these unique tours. The Plymouth Night Tour, Native Plymouth Tours, Pilgrim Food Tours, Spirit of Plymouth tour are just a few. Check your packet for more infomation.
Rallye -- Our rallye will take you through historic Plymouth and beyond. You'll end up at Plimoth Plantation and you can then tour the Plantation. (Don't forget to sign up on the form). 
"Plimoth Plantation" -- If you are not intersted in the rallye, why not head directly to the Plantation for a visit. Be sure to visit the outdoor living exhibits, including the 17th-Century English Village, Wampanoag Homesite, and the Plimoth Grist Mill. At the Craft Center, learn more about how the skilled craftspeople recreate the world of the 17th century. You can spend some time in the Hornblower Visitor Center. Purchase a souvenir of your time here and support the educational mission at one of three Museum Shops, or grab a bite to eat at the Patuxet Café.
