  4. And Up date on the Fairfield Inn: Is the BCA block sold out? Not as of this morning. There were three rooms left, but Vickie is checking to see if more rooms can be added. Will update you as soon as we can. Kristi There IS a Reatta block separate from the BCA block and that is being handled and coordinated by the Reatta Club. This is no different than the 100th Anniversary celebration in Flint, when the Reatta Club hosted their group at the Wyndham.
  5. There will be "new car" parking, near the show field. JB

  8. The show will be open to the Public on Saturday and there will be an admission charge, donated to charity, for same. You MUST be a member of the Buick Club to participate for the week and display your car.
  9. FAIRFIELD INN: I talked with Vickie Fairbairn at the Fairfield Inn and the problem for the Saturday night reservations is caused by their system. Technology is a wonderful thing, until it doesn’t work the way you want or expect it to work. And then we yearn for a simpler time! Reservations for Tuesday through Friday nights opened as planned. She was not aware that reservations for Saturday night will not open until Monday (Aug 17) due to limitations with the reservation system they use. She has instructed her front desk to put all BCA reservation calls through to her. She is keeping a list of reservations and will add Saturday night to their block (for those who want it) at the group rate of $139 as soon as she is able. She is frustrated by the situation and apologetic, but doing everything she can to make sure the BCA guests are being taken care of.
  10. The Holiday Inn – Allentown Central is OPEN for reservations according to Ms. Jackie Smith, Director of Sales.

  19. Some answers to the questions above: 1. The RV request is off to Keith and Christina for better definition than we have on the Registration. 2. There are always car "issues" with "I register this and I end up driving that". Although Registration may be closed when you make the switch, my preference is that you let us know, when you know, so that we might make the change timely. We always have a show field with ebb and flow. JB
  20. Show Field: Everyone who brings a car to the 2016 Celebration, will have a PRE-Assigned Parking space/place on the show field. Think AACA. Prior to your arrival in Allentown, you will have a show field map (soon to be posted on the web site) and a corresponding assigned parking space by year. This will be your parking place throughout the Allentown week. You may come and go as your please and we will have security at each of the entrances/exits to assist you. Flea Market/Swap Meet: You may enjoy the Fleas, Wednesday through Saturday, and Brian will be hosting vendors both inside and outside, as we do at the National Meet. Shuttle Buses: I have RE-copied my comment from above: Third, once we see where everyone is staying, there WILL be shuttle bus transportation to some facilities. I am not yet saying all, because I don't know yet, what all will be. JB
  21. Good Friday Morning! First, let's change the word Compound to Complex as it sounds better. Second, our plan is to make the entrance and exit available everyday so that you may use your cars for transportation. Isn't that what they are built to do? Drive. Every gate will have Security and every car registrant will have an assigned parking space, by year, grouped together. Third, once we see where everyone is staying, there WILL be shuttle bus transportation to some facilities. I am not yet saying all, because I don't know yet, what all will be. The tour buses will leave and return to the Bulgari Complex which should make the pick up and delivery a simple task. Happy Fourth O' July. JB
  22. To our neighbors to the North, in Canada, the Registration site is now fixed. JB
  23. We have been working on this celebration since 2013 and we are excited to be Cruising into Allentown in 2016. Pictures will be posted soon of the Show Site so all might see, where we will be. Thursday evening, everyone who attends the Dorney Park cookout will get a souvenir picture of you and your classic/collector Buick as a keep sake. Of course, if you want to join me on a roller coaster, you are welcome to do that too. JB
  24. Buick Club Meeting and the 2016 50th Anniversary Celebration: For those of you who wish to host a meeting during the 2016 Celebration in Allentown, please contact me @ Jeff1952@tts-us.com I will need the following: Group Name Size of the Group Date Time We will then assign you a space and make your meeting a part of the Event. Thank you...JB
  25. All credit cards do but AMEX....High service charge/low customer service. I'll loan you my VISA, RV! JB
