With the 2017 gathering behind us, folks like to start figuring out ASAP where the next gathering will be.
As per the rotation schedule, the 2018 gathering needs to be somewhere in the East region.  You can see the regions and past locations using this map.

Reply to this thread with a city of your choice along with some reasons why the location would be a good choice for us.  You may want to suggest a good time to visit as well.


Thanks!

Ocean City MD. Many members have been there or live near by. They can suggest restaurants and places to see. I would go either early June or mid September to avoid the crowds.

I don't know much about the area, but WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia is historical. I'm sure it will be expensive too. I agree on early June for date. Beat the heat and the crowd.

Virginia sounds nice, would love to do the blue ridge parkway. Williamsburg is beautiful, been there a few times lots of history.

I would host a Adirondacks, Old Forge, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid  event if it's in NY. June around now before schools out and traffic starts.

Ideas for Indianapolis include:
 
  • Indianapolis Motor Speedway (if coordinated with the Bloomington Gold show in June, folks can pay to take laps at the track)
  • Mecum Auction (if coordinated in May)
  • There are many Private (and public) Car Collections / Museums available to view
  • There are obviously locations and sights associated with both the Indy 500 as well as Automobile Manufacturing (Indiana once had more Automotive Production than the Detroit area)
  • Current Car Manufacturing
  • Louis Chevrolet's grave
  • Griot's Garage event (warehouse and manufacturing here(
  • Wineries
  • Plenty of indoor and outdoor full speed go-carting
  • War Memorials - Indianapolis is 2nd only to Washington DC in Memorials per capita
  • Casinos (as desired - not a scheduled event) - there are two within 15-20 minutes of Indy

Here are some of the possibilities for Cincinnati:

 

Cincinnati Zoo-2nd oldest zoo in US 

The American Sign Museum; Cincinnati, Ohio

Hof Brau Haus restaurant; Newport, KY

Newport Aquarium; Newport, KY:  70 exhibits and 14 galleries, including 5 seamless acrylic tunnels totaling over 200 feet in length

BB Riverboat Tour Ohio River  Cruise, dinner cruise

One or more stops on the KY Bourbon Trail

Wright Patterson Air Force Museum; Dayton, OH

TriState Warbird museum [WWII planes]

Full Throttle Indoor Karting

Kentucky Speedway; Sparta KY [dates to drive the track are limited]

See Dirt track racing at Lawrenceburg Speedway  [sprint cars, midgets or others]

Kentucky Horse Park, Museum

Louisville slugger museum; Louisville, KY

Just a few ideas to think about.  Could be done in combination with Indianapolis.

Better decide QUICKLY to have it during Bloomington, and secure the accommodations even sooner. A place for all of us to sleep in the same building may prove to be a dilemma.

Indianapolis/Cincinnati is our choice.  Looks like lots of things to do and see. Early June to avoid crowds.

Orlando Florida is a great option also.

I could agree with Orlando! Never been to that state for a visit. Our daughter went to collage there, but didn't see much else. Maybe ECKLERS could put together a program for us. Just a thought.

How about Ashville, Knoxville area. Mountain roads, mansion, GOLD, Tail of the Dragon?

"ALL" the gold is in California, in a bank in Beverly hills in somebody else's name! I could go for a trip to Asheville or near it. Blue ridge parkway, mountains, Skyline Drive. BEAUTIFUL area. Fun travel.
