Please do post how many BCA Nationals you've been to

 

I've been to 32 and the 50th will be my 35th.

If all goes according to plan, Oklahoma will be lucky 13...joined in time for 2003.  Driving down, if we touch Kansas, I’ll hit the thirtieth state I’ve been to...getting to Concord would add to that total.  Of course, I’ve only been to seven out of ten Canadian provinces so far.

Unfortunately, I've only been to four so far as I tend to drive only east of the Mississippi river.  I've enjoyed each of them, but the Concord and Allentown meets really stand out for me.  I plan to attend the 2020 in Ohio, and I definitely will be attending the 2021 50th in Concord!

Well ain't that special!:D

I have been to only 25, driving to all but one.

The Ames meet was by far the best.  Flint meets were just OK, but I will never return to that nasty town.

Only 14 for me.  Several of the Flint meets and both Batavia's.  Did not drive my car to two of them, Concord #1 and Denver.  

Enjoyed each for their hospitality and variety.  I like to go to new places each time because the 2nd round in the same location seldom pushes the unique button, which is what makes it most enjoyable for me. 

 

Took the 56 in '78,'81,'89,  &'03.  Took the '69 in '05, '08, '11 &'13.  Then the '72 to the rest.  Missed my car in '12 and '18.  Missed it so much so that I won't go to another meet if I can't have my car there.

Flint ‘03 was my first,  followed by Plano, Seattle, Ames, Danvers, Concord.  Oklahoma in the plans followed by Concord for sure

I've only been to four since joining the BCA in 1998.

Richmond, Va was my 1st and we drove our 1994 Buick Lesabre but did not register it and made a vacation out of the next week working our way home.

The 2nd was Flint, Mi in 2003 and did drive the Special as it was so close to home.

The 3rd was 2013 in South Bend, In and drove there and back in one day primarily for the Swap Meet but had time to see cars that were not out on the tours. Great rewards there to bring home but a long day...

The 4th was 2017 in Brookfield, Wi which the Special failed me three days before leaving with a bad fuel pump... We went anyway in our Van (blah..) and my wife LOVED the shopping experience next door at the Mall! 

 

We are looking forward to 2020 in Strongsville, OH as it is relatively close and should have issues on the Special straightened away to drive up with the top down!

 

How many more? Will see...

We have managed to attend 7 BCA nationals since becoming members in the mid '80s.  First one was Flint , MI in '88. Hopefully and God willing we will be able to attend Ok and ones to follow.

I think the most memorable was '92 in Overland Park, KS. My father-in-law, my oldest brother and my family all drove our '65 Buicks from MN to KS. All three cars received Senior Gold awards at that meet.

 

 Looking forward to many more meets to come,

A bit of a newbie here. I joined in 2014. Attended Springfield and Allentown so far as family needs have allowed. Doesn’t look like Oklahoma City will work out this year. I plan to attend Strongville and, being in VA, Concord should be very convenient.
