  • 2020 International Meet

    Plans are well underway for this meet! If there are any questions about it, ask them and an answer will be given in short time. Wayne and his crew have most of the meet put together and are ready for hotel reservations to be placed. Look for information soon in Turning Wheels and the forum website. This is going to be a very good meet, make your plans to attend as soon as you can.

            In addition to the host hotel we've been busy signing up nearby hotels and also some hotels near the swap meet/car show venue. The plan is to ensure we provide options to suit all tastes. Before releasing the list we ran a telephone test of the their readiness to accept reservations. Result: Some were ready & willing. Some had no clue. Beginning today we're taking steps to talk with the hotel managers to share our findings in hopes they'll get their staffs up to speed. Be sure you ask for the "Studebaker Drivers Club" rate. The planning committee met again yesterday - we're making progress! I'm told the Mansfield Meet website will be coming down soon, as the Chattanooga Meet website is in development. Stay tuned! ...Wayne

                    Please note that our contract with each of the hotels includes their agreement to honor our Studebaker Group Rate for overnight stays for our members 2 days before and after our core (5-8 Aug) dates. We built this into our Meet planning so folks could join us this last week before school starts to take full advantage of Chattanooga's many attractions. If any hotel doesn't honor this please let me know and one of us on the planning committee will ensure it is remedied quickly. ...Wayne

                      Bill V A,
                      This is your (and everyone else's) fair warning.
                      Sonja and I are booked for the duration of the meet at the Hilton host hotel and are looking forward to putting faces on all of you.
                      It should be a great time for all.
                      Cheers,
                      Bill & Sonja

                        I'll be quite visible around the host hotel, and am looking forward to meeting many of you that I've conversed with here. Wayne and crew will have a very good meet so make your plans as early as possible! Bill

                            To the best I know the display/judging will be done at the Camp Jordan complex, which is about 6 miles from the host hotel. The folks in charge are still wrapping up the details so changes are possible. More detailed info will be coming out in the next couple of weeks. Thanks, Bill.

                              No Steve. We spent a lot of time looking for a venue that we could use for the entire event - that was affordable. We could get big enough - but it wasn't affordable. We could get affordable - but it wasn't big enough. The final compromise was to split the event, as has been done in South Bend, with the swap meet and cars in one area and the hotel in another - both affordable.

                              The judging and car show will take place at the Camp Jordan Park in East Ridge, TN. This is a 275 acre municipal multi-sports facility. It has a 34,000 Sq ft air-conditioned arena that we'll be using for the indoor Vendor Swap Meet (with outdoor vending spaces too). It is approx 6 miles SW of the host hotel. Address: 323 Camp Jordan Parkway, East Ridge, TN 37412. Here's a link to the park: https://www.eastridgeparksandrec.com...67-camp-jordan. Thanks, ...Wayne
