    The 2017 meet hasn't happened yet, so I assume you mean the one from the 2016 Meet last week?
    Photos of that can be found here~

    My thanks to Denny, Stu, and the others who continue to point out that we should be thankful that the Michiana Chapter is willing and able to put on an International meet. It has to be a huge undertaking which requires thousands of man hours to accomplish. I just feel lucky that there are still enough folks remaining that are willing to make that commitment. Thanks to you all!

    I attended my first International last year in St. Louis, after trying to make the four prior to it, and had a great time and made several new member friends. Having only had the one experience I welcome the new format. It did seem to me the meet dragged a little in St. Louis. Perhaps it was because I don't have all of the old friendships to try and renew each year which require time to accomplish but I, for one, look forward to SB and the new format whenever it occurs.

    I am planning to make the trip. Will be my first studebaker meet, and hopefully the Lark will make it...

    Whether it's hot or cold we will make the best of it and support the Studebaker name and club!

    I have been told that May was selected due to availability of the fairgrounds. How about having the concours some place else, such as; Bendix Park (that has a Studebaker connection)?
    Gary, Bendix Park is a good suggestion, however there is no facility there to house the swap meet, which seems to be the current requirement. By the way, your homeward driving directions were great. No problems at all. Thanks.

    Why are some acting like its a jail sentence to pull their kids out of school for a week or so? To me, its the most lame excuse I've ever heard to say they can't attend a meet because of that!

    I have seen instances where school kids have missed a week where the parents have taken them on vacation trips, and instances of illness on the student's part forcing them to remain home or temporarily in a hospital if its serious. They can catch up with their schoolwork if need be.

    I had not heard that before, but if it is true it's MORE than a Big Mistake, it's a Disaster!

    I wonder how many Members Tippecanoe Place can accommodate, that's where I'd be!

    There has been a huge Studebaker meet in South Bend in the month of May for the past 35 consecutive years! Why on earth should 2017 be any different?

    Maybe we should have a specific "SDC Forum" where we all can chat about this 2017 SDC IM.

    I have successfully done that before with my kids. No problem with the school system here in Kentucky. They will grant "excused absences" if the request addresses art and historical significance. That is an easy write up, in making a connection with Studebakers & South Bend
