2010 Eastern Division Spring Meet

Recommended Posts

Hello All!!

I know many of you know who I am, but for those of you who don't, my name is Pat Thorpe and I am the chairman of the Eastern Division National Spring Meet in 2010.

My phone is already ringing, and I know it won't likely stop ringing until next July so I'll save a few phone calls and explain the following:

Date: June 3-5, 2010

Location: Canandaigua, New York "The Gateway to the Finger Lakes." Canandaigua is southeast of Rochester and about halfway between Syracuse and Buffalo, NY. Canandaigua is South of Interstate #90, east of Interstate #390, West of Interstate #81, and NYS Route #5, and US Route #20 runs within 1/4 of a mile from the host hotel, banquet facility and showfield. Hopefully if you have your maps out, I've put you within inches of where you'll need to be.

Directions:

From the North: NYS Thruway Exit #44 (mile marker #346), and take Route #332 South. Rte #332 turns into Main Street Canandaigua and literally ends at Canandaigua Lake.

From the East or West: Follow NYS Route #5 or US Route #20 into Canandaigua. When you see the Wal Mart Supercenter in Canandaigua, NY look for the signs. The show field can be accessed from the traffic light at Wal-Mart.

From the South: Follow either Route #14, Route #15, or Route #21 and turn onto NYS Route #5 or US Route #20. Route #14 you'd pick up Routes 5 & 20 in Geneva and turn west. Route #21 you'd pick up Routes 5 & 20 just west of Canandaigua. Route #15 you'd pick up Routes 5 & 20 in Avon and turn East

Show Field: Finger Lakes Community College. Follow signs that read "CMAC"

Host Hotel: I'll explain later....

Tours: Friday, June 4, 2010 - Not set in stone yet, but tentative plans are to do two tours.

Tour #1 - A Finger Lakes Wine Tour through many of the wineries in our area.

Tour #2 - A tour to the Glen Curtis Museum in Hammondsport, NY.

Friday Night Activity: I have reserved the Finger Lakes Performing Arts Center for a catered meal and entertainment will be provided (which will NOT include the exploits of Wayne Burgess:D:D:D). This is on the grounds of Finger Lakes Community College about 500 feet north of the showfield. There will be a cash bar available.

Judging School & Roundtable Discussion: We're working out on some logistics issues, and next week I'll know for sure, but if it works these two events will be taking place at the Finger Lakes Performing Arts Center (also known as CMAC). This is a large outdoor amphitheater that seats well over 1,000 people. CMAC is the summer home to the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the site for the summer concert series which often includes the likes of Kenny Chesney, The Beach Boys, etc.

Ladies Luncheon: A lunch tour aboard the Canandaigua Lady. The Canandaigua Lady is a Mississippi style paddle boat that will take the wives out on Canandaigua Lake for a two hour narrated tour. This boat is docked at Steamboat Landing.

Registration, Merchandise, Hospitality and Thursday Night Social: On Thursday and Friday this area will be at the Steamboat Landing. Steamboat Landing is on Lakeshore Drive 1 mile west of the show field, and 1 mile east of the host hotel. My committee liked what we saw in Gettysburg so we decided to put everything in one big room to avoid having people going in many directions to find things. While your significant other is snacking in the hospitality area, you can either go get your registration packet or spend some money on some good AACA merchandise :cool::cool::cool:. If you get hungry there is a restaurant on site that serves some pretty good food.

Judge's Breakfast and Awards Banquet: This will be in the same room that everything else is going on in during the week. If registration numbers are high, we may do this in a large tent overlooking the shores of Canandaigua Lake.

Back to Host Hotel.........

If you have read through everything, you'll notice that there will be nothing taking place in the host hotel. The host hotel has almost 100 rooms, they only would give us 38 rooms, but they would only give us an additional 20 rooms (that's 58 rooms) if we'd give them the business for the awards banquet. The banquet room at the host hotel is smaller than the facility that everything will be held at, and the prices on the meals at the host hotel were $11 a plate more. Needless to say, the decision was made to pull the plug to add to your convenience and to help keep prices down. The Canandaigua Inn on the Lake is the nicest hotel in town, but if you're looking to stay at the host hotel because of the activities, DON'T DO IT!! As in the case of Hershey, the host hotel only exists in name only.

Additional Lodging: I have a meeting scheduled with my committee chairs on October 21st. We are trying to get a special rate and a comp policy set up with the other hotels and won't know until next week where we're at. If you're planning on attending the meet you can find lodging at

www.visitfingerlakes.com

They will have all of the hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, lakeside cottage rentals, etc. and they have many various rates. We have two hotels about to begin construction, but it may or may not be done in time for the meet. There are over 700 rooms available within 13 miles of the actual showfield. There are a few of the smaller motels that I would not recommend, but if you have a question, just ask.

We will be at Philly with more information. Being that I work nights, work crazy hours and it is often very difficult to reach me. If you need to talk to me my phone number is listed as the contact information in the Antique Automobile, but your best bet is to e-mail me at pathorpe@rochester.rr.com.

This is not everything, but at least this is something to give you some direction. As more develops we will be posting more information on our region website @ www.gvacs.com

Thank you for your time,

Pat.

PS. Bear in mind that the Hershey Region has hosted a meet every year since 1955 and they're still not perfect. This is the first national meet I've ever been involved with, we haven't done a national meet in 20 years, so don't expect us to be perfect either:eek::eek::eek:

A quick suggestion, a list of campgrounds nearby that can accomodate everything from tent campers to "big rigs" would be helpful. Sometimes it is hard to tell in campground books how close they really are to a certain city/town.

The closest major campground is a KOA about 6 miles north of Canandaigua.

Thanks. I will go out to the RV and look in our KOA book and get the information for it. :)

Susan,

Below on this post is the list of campgrounds that is off of the website www.visitfingerlakes.com,

If you can get your motorhome in, I'd recommend Onanda Park and Beach. I didn't realize that you can camp there, but Onanda Park is a town owned park and it is on West Lake Road right on the water. I think you can look across the lake and see the college. When I was a kid, Onanda Park used to be a girl scout camp, that was turned over to the town after the camp closed.

KOA is okay, but it is farther away. There are other places listed, but they are also farther away.

I know from talking with Pat that this meet will be one of the best. They are working hard well in advance and covering lots of little detail. Most importantly, they are attending other meets to learn how to do it. I'm looking forward to it. Wine country too!

Doesn't matter, I'll leave early and be there some kind of way. Your region has been working too hard throughout this year to have me miss all of the fun. Your listings above will be very helpful. Good job!

Wayne

The southern drawl doesn't help you Wayne. An easier way to prounounce Canandaigua is to say Ontario County!!:D Or you can say the town directly east of East Bloomfield.:eek:

I'll help you pronounce it to y'all

Canandaigua :confused:

Cannon (like what we all saw in Gettysburg):cool:

Day (the opposite of night):rolleyes:

Gwuh (what the local people say every year when we get our tax bill):eek:

Put all the words together and you get CannonDayGwuh.

Now the real challenge will be if Steve can get it spelled right on all of the trophies?? That portion will be an engravers nightmare. We had enough trouble when we put the Canandaigua name back on our fire truck. If my school teachers didn't make it a spelling word when I was a kid I'd be in the same boat as the rest of you.

I still have a Senior trophy from Binghampton.:D

Here are all of the local motels. There are some that I would not recommend, but if you're looking for a room that is inexpensive, clean and close to everything, I would recommend the LaFayette Motel. It is an old mom and pop owned motel, but it is well maintained and the closest motel to all the events that I would recommend. This is a no frills place that only has 21 rooms.

Okay here is my final list of hotels. With this list, along with all of the campgrounds, vacation rentals, and motels, this list covers every place that you can stay within 15 miles of the showfield.

Understand that there are a lot of hotels that were larger, but the place that was designated as the host hotel was the nicest place closest to the showfield. There are actually more rooms in Geneva and Victor, but Canandaigua had more restaurants, and space large enough to accomodate for the show field and trailer parking. I've never seen a roundtable discussion held in an amphitheater, but if you want a glimpse of what we're going to give you go to www.cmacevents.com

Go to www.fingerlakes.edu/ for the website showing where the showfield is going to be.

For a glimpse of where our Thursday and Friday hospitality, our Judge's Breakfast, Ladies Luncheon and our Awards banquet you can see this by going to www.steamboatlandingonline.com/

For a glimpse of one of our chartered bus tours, go to www.glennhcurtissmuseum.org/ here it will give you a brief overview of what you'll see during the tour.

Okay folks, the sales pitch is over, everyone who has questions can either ask me direct or visit the websites that I've already listed. This thread has every bit of information that I can possibly give you.

By the time this is over even Wayne Burgess will be able to say Canandaigua and he'll know where it is.

Talladega?? Nope not in my parts. We have a dirt track about 1 mile from the show field. They run on Saturday nights from May until Labor Day. As for NASCAR tracks, the showfield is 55 miles northwest of Watkins Glen International. I will say that after 20 years the nascar boys are starting to learn how to run left AND right.:D:D

Speaking of Watkins Glen, they set aside one weekend every summer for the wine festival. All of the wineries in the area set up where people can taste the wines, and buy the wines (often to the point where there are a lot of drunks).

Pat, Thanks SO Much for posting all the information regarding the 2010 EDSM. :D

Those of us who have to plan far ahead due to family and work REALLY appreciate it.

I do have some questions that I did not see the answers for in all the information that you posted. (I may have missed it so I apologize if I did.)

Will there be trailer parking? If so, where will it be located and will there be provisions for security should that be necessary? Once that information is available it will be easier to make reservations for accomodations knowing where trailers can be parked.

Once again, Thank You so Very Much for posting the information. :)

Speaking of having to plan early, it might be a good idea to "Sticky" this thread so that it is easy to find for those members that will be getting vacation scheduling sheets soon. And for those of us retired folks making plans to go. In summer kennel spaces for dogs fill up quickly so we have to plan for that also.

Pat,

Having never learned the word "No", I have been asked to be Meet Chairman for 4 National Meets and 1 Grand National Meet. And when I was Region President, our region hosted another National Meet. Anyway, I have a little document that I wrote to share my experience with others. Of course, I am still learning, and I am on the list to be Meet Chairman again in 2012. Maybe some day I will get it right, or I will learn to say "No". But, remember, there is no such thing as a meet that goes off without having to solve new problems.

I am e-mailing you my little write-up, so you can drop it in the trash can if you prefer.

Susan, I originally made this a stickee, but since we have so many meets and tours throughout the year, eventually we'd have 18 stickees and the normal posts would end up on a second page.:(

Therefore, you guys have the option of bookmarking it, or keeping it alive, within reason, of course. ;)

Thanks Wayne. I logged on and knew that it had been stickied and then it wasn't.

Maybe we need a new forum for this kind of information. :)

I agree. I could be mistaken but I believe the idea of a seperate forum for Meets & Tours has been suggested in the past and turned down If I Remember Correctly.

More and more Regions & Chapters are coming to realize how very IMPORTANT it is to post information about the meets & tours they host on their web sites and especially on the AACA Forums. It is the most TIME and EFFORT efficient way of communicating this information and, most importantly, answering QUESTIONS for a large amount of people. While these forms of communication should not replace emails or telephone calls, they are MUCH more TIME efficient for the Regons & Chapters that host AACA events. If the AACA in General and the Chapters & Regions in particular are really sincere in their stated desire to attract younger AACA members these forms of communication simply MUST be embraced, used and supported to grow both the events and the club in general. I sincerely hope that more and more Regions & Chapters continue to embrace the use of modern technology to communicate with AACA Members and potential =NEW= AACA Members.

To AACA National and the Regions & Chapters who have embraced the technology I salute you. :cool:

To those Regions & Chapters who have not, What the heck are you waiting for????

Okay, time for me to get off of the Technology Soapbox (for now). :)

Susan and Charlie,

I am amazed at the number of regions and chapters that don't have web sites and don' t distribute publications and information to members by the Internet. They are certainly missing an opportunity that our technology provides. Let's continue to encourage them to make use of modern methods. And a seminar at the Annual Meeting in Philadelphia would definitely be useful. (Unfortunately, there are regions and chapters who have never had anyone attend the AACA Annual Meeting either.)
