2014 VCOA National Meet

Post by volvie! on Thu Jan 15, 2015 4:04 pm

Hi Everyone,

The 2014 VCOA National Event has been scheduled for October 31 - November 2 in Arkansas.

Here is the copy and paste from the VCOA:


"2014 National Meet is set for Oct 31-Nov 2 in the Ozark Mountains, in Northwest Arkansas.  We’re really excited to have the Ozark Rollers Chapter host the meet in Eureka Springs (called the little Switzerland of the Ozarks).  It’s listed on page 392 of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” as a “Victorian Village in the Mountains”.  Excerpts from the book describe this little gem, built into the side of the Ozarks, as a “tiny village with a charming collection of Victorian architecture and hibbledy-piggledy streets snaking past cliff-clinging homes, confounding new visitors”.

“Folks easily fall in love with this place, so appealing antithetical to modern urban planning.  It is the only city in the country whose entire downtown area is on the National Register of Historic Places with no traffic lights to be found.  With a population of 2,000, tucked away in the NW corner of Arkansas, it’s surrounded by miles of lakes, rivers, and packed with small shops, galleries, B&Bs, and hotels.  Eureka Springs with its Victorian charm intact, was founded as a health resort in 1879 with 63 reputedly curative springs, used for both drinking and bathing at a time when society was mad for water cures.  Health seekers immediately began arriving by stage, but the town’s success was assured with the arrival of the railroad in 1882 and this wilderness was transformed into a flourishing resort spa.”


Weekend Activities include: (Exact agenda will be published later)
Friday:  Arrival, Registration, Reception/Food and “Dutch” Auction

Saturday:  Breakfast, Car Get Ready, Car Show, Displays, Flea market, Lunch, Parade, Banquet with special guests and awards.
