  1. Steve M., unfortunately Hershey Region's notification they emailed and put on Facebook says otherwise ("It is with great regret that the AACA Hershey Region Executive Board informs you that the 2020 Hershey Fall Meet has been cancelled.") UNTIL you READ FIVE PARAGRAPHS into it that they are attempting to try to hold a meet ("are working toward the possibility of still hosting our usual car show on Saturday in October."). It left me with an impression of that said car show being simply a region show instead of national meet. I think their headline/ first line should have read more
  2. That's the one seminar I'd love to be at but I'm not going to be able to make Philly this year. Any chance someone could video it for me???
  3. Bringing this back to the top to see if there is any new info. Ted, sorry to hear about your wife's declining health.
  4. My understanding is a number of years ago the club approached the museum about purchasing a parcel and was refused as they had other plans for that parcel. Now they are wanting to "give" that same parcel to the club. I looked at the tax records and it didn't show how Hershey Region got their land other than it was a Sheriff sale. I did note that the land value of the 17.8 acres is $114,400. My question would be how the museum came up with 2-3 acres being worth $1M+. I can't imagine Dauphin county assessing the land at 11% of market value. https://gis.dauphincounty.org/dauphincountyparcelv
  5. I was in an area of the orange field according to the map should have had double coverage. As soon as my laptop would connect, it'd drop the connection. I had the free wi-fi last year when on my green field spaces.
  6. There can be issues with that, like my neighbor. Last year he did not make the trip to Hershey from MI because he was to another meet just prior and sold out of the stuff he had (signs, gas globes), so with your proposal he would have had to make the trip, sit on his spaces with nothing to sell and waste the time, fuel, and $$ just to keep his spots for this year. As it turned out, he and his wife have had some serious health issues the past year. She won't be able to attend Hershey again and he couldn't find someone to come with him to help him this year. He is planning on being to Hershey ne
  7. Wayne, shame on you for breaking on the the ten commandments of a car collector. "Thou shalt not allow thy son nor daughter to marry during the holy week of Hershey."
  8. The most accurate forecast I've found is to look out the window myself. I've had them tell me on TV "mostly cloudy with a 10% chance of rain" and IT IS RAINING OUTSIDE my window!!! :confused:

  10. Over restoration gets them no extra points. incorrect IE non-factory options, etc. will get them deductions.
  11. Thanks Tommy for the research into the numbers I didn't' have time to do before needing to head to work this morning. You confirmed the point I was trying to make which was not to expect changes due to one or two shows have a large number when the overall average for that class isn't that large. Larry as far as " Why should some classes have "one" entry(at almost every meet) and "skate in" to their objective and other classes have to fight for every point. Fair is Fair." That one car is still playing be the same rules as everyone else. It has to meant the minimum points required and be within
  12. Having done all the national meets in 2010 which include places like Tucson, AZ and Cheyenne, WY, Moline, IL, it was an eye opener as what takes place in other areas of the country at national meets. Here on the east coast I'm use to a national meet being several hundred cars to over 1,000 at Hershey. My jaw dropped when I walked into Judges breakfast in Tucson. There were only a handful of tables. When I went to the showfield there were only about 50 vehicles. A local AACA meet here has more cars!! The meets in the Central Division did have better attendance but were still what I consider to
  13. I personally wouldn't want something with a timepiece in it. another set of battery to replace and/or need to make sure no batteries with it to leak if award is stored away. I'm fine with either something to hang or to set around. Only have so much room, so the older ones end up stored away. Like Wayne suggested, some examples might be helpful.
  14. Merry Christmas to all my DFer friends!! I know I haven't been on here much over the past year. Planning a wedding, then redoing house house has kept me busy. I've done plumbing, electrical, drywall,plaster walls, laid laminate flooring, laid vinyl tile flooring, painted everything except the floor, rehung window weights, replaced window panes, replaced windows, fixed doors that stick, replaced mortise locks and door knobs, replaced toilet. Now if all that time would have been on one of my cars, at least I would be able to drive it. I guess I can consider it all good when when get a renter in
