    2017 SDC meet, South Bend

    Anybody have information on trailer parking at the host hotel, Doubletree by Hilton. I called and was advised there was no on-site trailer parking but maybe could park at a convention center across the street? I know it's a bit early but need to make plans and decision will be made on availability of trailer parking. Thanks.

    RV type "trailer" or ??? For the 2002 IM in South Bend we used a city owned lot a few blocks west of the host hotel, but that was principally for Swap Meet Vendors who were all set up in Century Center downtown. In 2017 the Swap Meet will be out at the Fairgrounds and they do have limited RV "trailer" parking there.

    Also there is now on here a sub-Forum titled "2017: 53rd Annual Studebaker Drivers Club International Meet" where the people in-the-know are more likely to see & respond to your information request.

    Good luck!

    I seem to recall this discussion coming up not too long ago.
    I don't remember if it was it's own thread or if it is buried in some other one-
    maybe in a thread about the New Hampshire show?

    Either way- it and many other threads about South Bend have yet to be found and moved into their proper Forum.

    It'd sure make things easier if that would happen...

    There will be a place at the Fairgrounds starting on Sunday before the meet. It will be in the west parking lot along the south fence. If you brought a car trailer/hauler in 2012, it will be in the same spot. We will start at the east side of that lot and line up trailers going west. There is NO LIMITED AREA. If you have a car trailer/hauler, bring it. If you have specific questions, you can PM me, or post them in the 2017 area.

    You have lost me. What "New Hampshire show" are you referring to?

    I completely agree, that if members do not know to post this sort of question in the proper area, moderators should move them.

    I knew that was odd when I typed it. My bad. I meant Rhode Island.

    I agree …to a degree!

    I've noticed many threads started in less than the most appropriate SDC Forum were started by relatively NEW to-our-Forum friends. Maybe a nice gesture would be before our Administrator/Moderators "MOVED" their thread to notify the OP privately of such pending "MOVE." Nicely explain the reason their thread must be "MOVED" …and of course thank them for their participation.

    Let’s remember, we all needed to learn to crawl before we learned to walk …unless we have some over-achievers here in our fold!

    And StudeDave57, you might just get your wish tomorrow …SUNDAY!!! Since I started tracking there have been more "MOVED" threads on SUNDAYs than any other day of the week. Also, noticed a sharp decline in "LOCKED" threads through the first 6 months of this year versus the last 6 months of 2015. Dave, maybe all the people with their "hands on the Forum controls" are getting old and getting too soft on us!?!?
