  1. Some members have contacted me concerned about the recent weather events in Oklahoma lately.  Yes, there has been a lot of rain and even a few tornados in Oklahoma.  However, these weather events have not impacted the Midwest City area.  In fact, the leadership committee went up there for a final visit on Wednesday, May 22, and everything was good.  So, if you are concerned about the weather somehow damaging the meet, do not.  The show will go on as planned.

  2. The May 26 deadline is in a few days.  This deadline only applies if you want to go on any of the tours or events.  The purpose of the deadline is that we have to take a head count for these events in advance so we can order the proper number of buses, meals, print maps, etc.  It doesn't necessarily mean you won't be able to go on these events after the deadline, however there is a chance that you might not be able to, due to the limitations.

     

    If you don't want to go on any tours or events, and just want to register a Buick for the show, you can still do that after the deadline, however a late fee may apply.

  3. There is a campground in the canyon that we stayed at one time.  Don't.  It was so very unbelievably hot. But there are several around the area. And if you are staying around Amarillo, I have a short list of restaurants you need to visit, too.  When we go in the direction of Colorado, we hit Amarillo right about lunch time, so we have a few of our favorites that we frequent.

  4. Some people have asked for RV and Campground information in the Midwest City, OK area. Here is a list provided by the Midwest City Visitor's Center.  As usual, please check with the campground directly before making any reservations.

  6. As suspected, all the BCA rooms are booked at the Sheraton host hotel.  They just gave you a room at the normal rates.  To anyone reading this, please call the alternate hotels listed on the registration form. All of these hotels are just as nice, are within walking distance of the Sheraton (no streets or highways to cross), and will give you the same $119 room rate, with breakfast included.

  7. Pete and I were there this past weekend to finalize some of the meet issues.  We were told then that the Sheraton (Host Hotel) was almost sold out.  We have the entire hotel except for a few rooms held back for employees, etc.  Perhaps they were selling you a room that was out of the block we had reserved.  However, every room, including ones from the alternate hotels are supposed to be $119 per night.  I'll try to find out what is going on.

  8. The drivers and seniors are included in the total.
    400 Point - 72
    Display Only -  64
    Archival - 21
    Modified - 14
     
    Total - 171
     
    In other words, of the 171 cars registered, 53 were driven and 15 were seniors.  The Driven and seniors could be in the other categories, too.
