BUICK RACER

2019 Buick Club National Meet -Midwest City, Oklahoma, June 12-15, 2019

Recommended Posts

The BCA President usually gets his / her room reserved by the host Chapter. I know as Head judge for Denver and this year as a BOD member, I had to make my own reservations. I know when I ran the two Danvers Meet, we blocked rooms for  BOD members, but it was up to them to make their own reservations.

Meers is closer to Lawton, Oklahoma, which is not that close to Midwest City.  My father is from Lawton and we used to go there quite a bit, but I haven't been there in several years.

Well OKC is gonna be fun, but 2021 will be closer to you and your gonna wanna come... 41 Buicks will be featured...we are gonna shoot to have one of every model attend.

 

But 2019 first... Pete has an excellent event planned. I am very excited about this one. Everyone should really consider it as it is gonna be one you won't want to miss. If I can make sure it is reliable enough might bring the 38-87...

Where is 2021?

 I have had my room booked for '19 a while now, and am planning to send my registration, but the info about the Rt 66 tour is conflicting. Some places it says Wed, other it says Fri. The BCA website has this conflicting info, as well as the form on the forum here, and the one on the back of the Bugle. I don't have a new issue of the Bugle, as we are in the midst of a Postal service dispute, and mail, though flowing, is way, waaay, behind.

 Could someone PLEASE clarify this?

Yes, we had to change the day of the Rte. 66 driving tour from Wed. to Friday due to the star attraction being closed on Wednesdays; and the star attraction of the Guthrie, Oklahoma tour being closed on Fridays, so it all worked out. We just swapped days. Older issues of the Bugle are outdated on the registration form.

This will be the show field on Saturday morning when the judging takes place. Approx. 500 parking spaces; we might use it for trailer parking, too. Is about two blocks from all of the hotels--walkable or there will also be shuttle vans.

Buick Building in Automobile Alley historic district, Oklahoma City. This is where the Automobile Alley/National Memorial bus tour will stop for lunch during the meet. There is a very nice restaurant inside.

The outdoor swap meet will be held inside the hotel's parking garage, with approximately 70 ten by twenty ft. spaces, so vendors will have some protection if it rains. There are also indoor swap spaces, all located in one very large room at the convention center. The outdoor swap spaces do have a height limit, though, due to the parking garage's roof--7.5 feet, if I remember correctly. Those needing greater height will have to be located in the adjacent parking lot with no roof. Here's the layout inside the parking garage. We will use this sheet to assign spaces as registrations come in. Vendors should be able to drive up to their space(s) and unload.

Pete; The Oklahoma City area was never on my radar as a place to go. I have t tell you, I am totally psyched about going to this years meet. The cars and the people  are the draw to a National , but This year with so many "Extras" included will make this a memorable Meet. As they say, "Be there or Be square".

Looking forward to it too @Jack Welch. The area plus Pete's planned activities should draw a crowd, plus it's so centrally located and all. Looking for a good scenic route for the estate wagon and Argosy to travel, possibly US 82.  Look forward to seeing everyone!!!
