The Party Starts at the Glen Club
The checkered flag may have dropped on the racing action at Watkins Glen International until this coming June, but that does not mean The Soul of American Road Racing has gone cold for the winter. For the first time ever, the prestigious Glen Club at Watkins Glen International is available year-round to cater private functions and parties and will also host several exciting sporting event parties in the coming months.
Sports fans are invited to attend the upcoming parties at the Glen Club starting with the NFL AFC/NFC Championship games on Sunday, January 21. This party will be the first of three followed by The Glen Club Super Bowl on February 4th, and of course, the Daytona 500 Party on February 18th. Admission is only $10 per person and available at the door the day of the event. Admission includes a full buffet, snacks and giveaways. Drink specials including $1 drafts will also be available.

Wall-to-wall windows provide guests with a panoramic view of the historic road course and surrounding scenic hillsides. Located high above Seneca Lake in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country the Glen Club makes the perfect place for business luncheons, wedding receptions or any special occasion. To reserve the Glen Club please call (607) 535-2486 ext. 256.
The history of the Glen Club dates back almost 50 years to a tent called the "Paddock Club" in 1958. The Club grew to an open-sided building in 1959 and was then upgraded by enclosing the building, adding a small kitchen and renaming it the ¿Onyx Club¿ in 1967. It underwent substantial improvements and was re-named the ¿Glen Club¿ in 1985 when the track re-opened under new management.
Tickets for the entire 2007 Season are on sale now! This includes the Sahlen¿s Six Hours of The Glen Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, June 8-10, the return of open-wheel racing during the Watkins Glen Grand Prix, July 6-8, and the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series at The Glen, August 9-12.
