Folks have suggested some great locations for our 2018 Gathering. I've decided not to list cities that were suggested that are very close to previous gathering locations in order to keep things new and exciting.

If Orlando is selected, we likely won't stay directly in Orlando, but somewhere near by and we'll make sure to arrange an Ecklers visit while there.

If Cincy/Indy is selected, we'll stay somewhere that makes sense to be able to experience the best of both cities. We will NOT go during Bloomington Gold as it was decided long ago to keep our event separate from major Vette events,

Each location has a lot of great things to do and see. So research the areas and choose wisely!

We'll determine a timeframe once the location is selected.

PLEASE ONLY CAST A VOTE IF YOU INTEND TO JOIN US IF YOUR LOCATION WINS!

|UPDATED|7/13/2017 12:07:13 PM (AZT)|/UPDATED|

Do we have confirmed hosts for each city listed? Having volunteer leaders in place should be a prerequisite for that city to be considered. Just my opinion.

While helpful, hosts are not required. I used to plan these remotely and can do it again.

Wish I could vote but at this point in time it is doubtful that I'll be able to attend.

Well, my Rand-McNally says the only "BURG" is GreensBURG. Looks like a logical spot to me. Looks to be about 50 miles to each venue.

Yep - that's the place.  Candi & Marshall, Wally (sundew) and I tried to connect with them on our way to the Charleston gathering but were unable to work it out.  We did wave as we passed by tho'.

Hoping our gathering is the MidWest - haven't posted in a few years and I'm posting now just wanted to get back in the groove.  Haven't had my car most of the summer due to an overheating issue that was giving me fits.  Finally found a mechanic's shop everyone trusted up here and we got that solved (part of the problem was a faulty gauge).  Got RUCRUZIN on the dyno two weeks ago for a master tune and they found that the jets in my dual carbs were 20 times larger than they needed to be.  Rich gas mixture was creating havoc.  Also I was able to pick up 65 horsepower through the tuning process.  I am supposed to be able to pick her up later today and this guy could not be more excited... road trip to Mackinaw Island tomorrow!

Is the vote too close to call or ?

One town or both?

Marshall & Candi, Mark & Jan on board for coordinating?

Looks like Cincy/Indy is the clear winner....

But like John said, do we make this a single town or multiple town event? 
Do we set up camp in the middle of the two? 
Do we split the stay and stay half at one hotel in one city and the other half in the other city?
Are Marshall & Candi and Mark & Jan prepared/willing/able to help plan?

The original concept was to do events in both locales. I need to get with Jan to discuss where we currently are We had not really reviewed the hotel aspect when we originally discussed
