With two months to go until the 2018 Western Meet in The Dalles, OR we are narrowing down the search for the 2019 location since we will announce it at this year's meet. We were starting a trend of the Peach City Beach Cruise in Penticton every odd year but that does not have to continue in 2019 if another viable location is found. I would appreciate some input from members regarding an event that we can attend as a meet. Please do not simply post a city/state location, we would like a specific event and location that meets the following criteria:
 
- Prefer a 3-day event with some activities, vendors, cruises, etc.
- The event/location must be accessible to a good number of members. The location must be likely to have at least 15 members in attendance.
- It is preferred to have the event in July/August as it is typically easier for more members to attend. We have had meets in June and September with some success so they are a possibility.
- The event does not have to be huge but it should be enough to try and draw members to drive from a good distance away.
- We must have a member who can organize and attend the meet. I will organize the meet if it is within a reasonable distance but cannot get to all areas. If anyone else wants to jump in and organize a meet, let me know.
- The event should be well established. Some events are not run well and can cause problems for our meet.
 
To submit a possible event, please provide the event name, event location, event date, web site link, and other information that might be helpful. It can even be an event we've attended in the past.
 
As always, I already have a few events in mind but there could be some out there I'm not aware of that would be suitable for a meet.
 
Thank you!

I have spoken with the Kruise of Klamath event people and they would provide a special parking area and even consider adding a Monte Carlo award class if we attended their show.

Way to go Aaron.... I pays to know people in low places.  Last year at my Carlisle Mini-Meet they had us parked a long way from everything and when I said something to my Carlisle contact following that mini-meet I requested we be moved closer and this year we now have a very prime location for our cars.

 

Another nice thing about returning to a location for a meet that you have been before is it seems that they get to know us and it is easier to get some things to go your way.

Yeah whenever we do the Peach City Beach Cruise they really roll out the red carpet. The Kruise of Klamath event seems to be excited to have us even though we've never done it before. There's some events that really don't seem to care so we don't attend those ones.
