Driving instructions to the 2018 ROA event

Recommended Posts

In case you don't notice the * in the thread about the 2018 ROA International Meet in Overland Park, here's a link to it.  I've posted videos that show you the drive and exits you'll want to take to get to the hotel from all points N, S, E, & W.

                     I don't think I'll be alive then, but Ed..........where is the 2108 Riviera meet going to be?  

I didn't know you could book hotels that far into the future LOL!

My crystal ball says that will be in the DFW area.  Probably the Embassy Suites in Frisco.

2019 to be revealed at the 2018 meet. If you come, you'll be in the know.

 

Anyone want to venture a guess?  I'm guessing somewhere east of the Mississippi.  That's as close as I can get for now. I have no real info, this is just a guess. I've got better than a 50/50 chance.  (26 of the 50 states lie east of the Mississippi River 😁)

Thanks.  And thanks to my tech savvy grandson whose GoPro camera we used and to his dad for editing and making it possible for me to post.

I'm hoping he'll come to the meet on Thursday and film all of the cars in the show field.  Then we could put it on a CD for all to see.

Even if it's not, you can still go.............the Mississippi has a few bridges you can cross over on!

Not much farther than the trips we made from our home to Harrisburg, PA or Williamsburg, VA but not as far as is was to Monterey, CA..  The really nice thing about roads is that they go both ways.  And if you can get on an airplane and get here, one can get you back.

Where's the fun in that.   No guess? How about a "hopeful" guess. And, no, we've been to NC previously.

Probably somewhere in the "Rust Belt"?

How about Honolulu? So much closer to us Down Under and I would love to see the driving instructions...

I'm going to guess Charleston West Virginia or Orlando Florida.

Hmmmm.  Interesting.  However, I think that Orlando is too far for too many people and hotels would be charging premium prices during the summer.  Just my HO, but based on some things Ray told Gord and me when we proposed Kansas City.

I'd like to see it come to New York State at some point...but not any where near New York City!

I've thought of NY different times myself as I know there are many beautiful places and roads in the state. Always thought Niagara Falls area might be nice as it has major name recognition and WOW factor. Many other places too around the Finger Lakes. Only potential issue with NY is similar to FL, its borderline remoteness geographically to rest of country "could" inhibit folks bringing cars outside of New England and eastern Canada. Then again we have seen lower turnout even in more geographic centrist locations so maybe it wouldn't matter. Just below NY we know east central PA has a history of great turnout with 3 meets. 2 in Lancaster and 1 in Hershey. All 3 had 120+ cars with Hershey I think over 140. So maybe NY would be fine.

 

ROA has had a handful of spectacular locations for meets both in location and attendance. And of course a flop here and there too. :( Having been to 23 meets. One that sticks out in my top 3 all time favorites was 1991 in Cape May. Great ocean front accommodating hotel, Some parking under cover, an enthusiastic and welcoming town council, and a nice ocean front grass show field just down the street from the hotel. Amazing! Different time - different world. Things changed in Cape May pretty quick after that with booming tourism. Its still a quaint beach town but now it would cost a fortune to hold a meet there if the same venue was still available.
