Pat, Thank You So Very, Very Much for posting this information.

This was well above and beyond the call to answer my question and is greatly appreciated. :)

My prior request for the name and address of the venue for the show was so I could figure out the distance from the hotel(s) to the venue.

You must have been reading my mind.

Thanks Again! :)

Charlie, reading your mind would be a scary thing!:D The meet chairman gave us the information this morning and I asked Patty to post it...the region is telling us that rooms are filling up fast! There seems to be a huge demand for this AGN so people should make reservations early as possible. I just heard from another member that some of the rooms are pricey so make sure you ask for the AACA block!

Charlie, reading your mind would be a scary thing!:D

Yes, that would be a scary thing :eek: and I make no where near enough money to pay for therapy for people who did read my mind. :D

Then again most car people I know do have a few loose nuts and bolts or we would not love old vehicles so much.

Thanks again to the Hosting Region, Patty & Yourself for getting the word out so early about the hotel situation for this event.

For those (like me) that searched this thread, all of the Shelbyville hotels are now sold out. I ended up in Tullahoma at the Holiday Inn.

I received my registration packet for the Shelbyville show but in the envelope was only a registration card for the Grand National show on Friday but no registration card for the National Meet on Saturday. How can I obtain a registration card for the Saturday show or who should I contact? Thanks, Larry

Thanks Steve and Lynn. What a great staff we have at National. One call to Lynn and everything was taken care of. Any time I have contacted the National staff I have found them outstanding and caring people. I am sure the dedication of the staff is why the AACA is one of the largest and most respected car club in the world. Thanks again, Larry

The link to the Nats meet info on the AACA registration site appears to be broken. I found it by going directly to the Celebration City region's site. BTW, they did an excellent job of posting the meet info, including the tri-fold and field lay out map...........bob

I have an attire question. I've attended the banquets at Hershey and at Stowe where the men dressed in business casual. I also attended the banquet in Philly for the National Awards where it was black tie. What is the Grand National banquet dress code? I wasn't planning on packing a tie, unless that's appropriate.

Just drove in 11 hours from Wilmington. I should have gotten more sleep but couldn't. Trailer is parked and we are relaxing in the motel for a few minutes. We are getting ready to head to the "Ice Cream Sundae Bar Bonanza & Brownies" Social with the family! See you guys soon!
