    Lynda and I made our room reservation in Tacoma today! As soon as the meet registration pops up, we will do that as well. Procrastination has no room for International and Zone Meets. We need to let the planners know we are on our way so they can plan effectively!

    That just may work for me, as I hope to retire around August 2018. It would be nice to drive a 56J to another North West SDC Meet. The last one was in 2005, when I drove the sunglow & snowcap 56J over there from KY. It was around 4500 miles, round trip. Gives me something to look forward to, and maybe a treat for retirement.

    Hi Peter,
    I think it would be great if we could get a caravan going, and the more the merrier. When I drove over there in 2005, it was a long, lonely trip. Also, in the middle of nowhere lots of things go through a person's mind. Luckily the old 56J never missed a beat. But I nearly died of food poisoning, and spent four days in the VA hospital in Ames, Iowa. LOL

    Is it too soon to start thinking about a route?

    Jim and Peter,
    If we get a caravan going, I'd probably angle NW and link up with y'all somewhere just west of Chicago.

    If the topic is FaceBook, I followed the above link, and it looks like you started a fight over there. Is that what you want us to focus on?

    That wasn't my point, but since you brought it up--- read it all.
    Unfortunately you can't read that which has been deleted.

    Next take a look at how well they listened to my suggestions.

    One example~
    they STILL have yet to say much of anything here~ on SDC's very own Forum!!!!
    I know there are things happening they can talk about.


    And yes. I have volunteered to help.
    Unanswered, those messages went.


    So anyway...

    Tacoma oughtta be fun.
    Enjoy it if you go.
    I might not.

    Dave,
    As mentioned over there, hopefully we can all just get along and put a positive spin on everything. I am looking forward to going, and as mentioned above, the timing may be good for me next year. It will be great to experience the northwest again. I had a wonderful time when last there in 2005, and looking forward to making more memories.

    Being in the northwest corner, I bet many folks will come from afar. Hopefully they will consider a long distance award, for anyone who drives a Stude to & from the meet

    The schedule of events and registration will be published in the February or March issue of Turning Wheels and on the meet web page sometime in January. I am looking forward to the caravan of Studebakers from the East.

    To All,

    Expect to see the website up shortly, and details, registration form, narrative, vendor registration form, camping information should be the March Turning Wheels. I'm sorry for the wait, but so many things are part of running a meet and creating a website, that it HAS TO BE RIGHT before we'll put it up.

    Please register for the meet before April 30, 2018 to take advantage of the reduced Registration Fee of $35 ($45/May 1). You're going to this historic meet, anyway, aren't you? Register early and do it now!

    Hi All,
    Newbie here from Canada and while waiting for additional info I am hoping you experienced SDC members can answer a couple questions which will help my planning. I have a mint 1916 Studebaker SF Four roadster which I would like to,either drive or trailer down from British Columbia to Tacoma. But I am concerned about leaving it unattended anywhere as it cannot be locked and obviously removable memorabilia 100 years old is impossible to find.

    Are vehicles typically left overnight at the international venue like Lemay Field or does everyone drive back to the various motels? Is there any security for vehicles either overnight at the venue or at the hotel parking lots? If I dragged my trailer down is there typically a place to store the vehicles in trailers overnight? I would Love to drive it down on it’s wooden spoke wheels even at its cruising speed of 25 mph...but if I need to store the car inside somewhere anyway then the trailer also affords me gas, parts, air, etc.

    thanks for any suggestions...I am a new owner and still learning the ins and outs of the vehicle and 6 volt ignitions!!!!!

    Rick

    Well, my best suggestion is for you to trailer, at 25 mph. you would be mowed down on I 5. There will be a trailer parking area below the Le Mays Americas Car Museum. Google an overhead view of Lemays ACM and you can see the hotels around it. The Best Western has covered parking that may fill the bill. Lou Cote

    16 studie - Or anyone else coming from the North or points in between..

    There will be quite a bunch of 'slow' cars and trucks coming out of BC and NW Washington. Most of the ones I know of will be doing upwards of 45 MPH which is the slowest legal speed you can do on the highways in WA state.

    I would encourage you to get in touch with the ASC club in BC or Whatcom County to arrange a group caravan taking HWY 9 and using only small portions of the freeway to connect over to HWY 99 or something similar. We have one in our group that only goes 45 or so and are planning 'alternate routes' out of Ferndale to Tacoma. We have a 'lead car' and a 'follow car' It is the safest way, 6 in a bunch or less is also the law. We are 16 miles from BC on I 5 . Keep in touch and watch for another thread covering this topic.

    As for parking it at night, you may get special treatment so it does not sit out, plus there are usually people watching out at all hours. Being in Tacoma, there are cameras in all of the hotel lots and garages.

    Guys, many thanks for the helpful suggestions. I live near Victoria,BC on the island, so may just catch the blackball ferry out of Victoria and then come through Port Angeles to Hwy 101, Highway three, Highway 16 into Tacoma. It’s only 100 miles this way....on hopefully a quieter route regardless of whether I throw caution to the wind and drive or trailer. Probably safest to trailer a 100-year-old vehicle, however driving it as you all know has a certain appeal.

    Mr. President....thanks for the tip and info re speaking with the BC chapter....will do.

    Rick
