MARC National Meet – Asheville NC

Asheville, NC is very close and you should not pass up this opportunity to attend this MARC 2024 National Meet. I have blocked 12 rooms at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Asheville Tunnel Road. We already have 8 couples planning to attend.

To participate in this national meet you must be a current member of MARC. You can find information on joining MARC here.

My tentative plan is to leave as a group on Monday, July 15th, and return home on Friday, July 19th as a group. You can go up and return on your own any day starting as early as Sunday, July 14th. The registration forms are included in the current issue of MARC’s Model “A” News. It lists all the daily events they offer and what the additional fees are. You’re on your own to do as many or none of those events.

The first thing you need to do is become a MARC member ($50/ year).  This can be done the quickest online at “Model A Restorers Club”. The slower way is by mail.

The most important date to remember is June 14th, 2024. That’s when unreserved rooms in the block will be returned to the public. It is also the date you can no longer cancel your room reservation without any payment penalty. Any registration forms sent in after that date will be charged an additional $15.

MY SUGGESTION: Make a room reservation for the days you want NOW. Vicki and I are planning for Monday, July 15th – Friday, July 18th (4 nights) coming home on the 19th. Review the registration form but don’t send it in until we’ve had a chance to go over it with some of the other folks.
