2010 VCOA National Meet & 50th Birthday Party for the 1800

Post by volvie! on Tue Nov 03, 2009 5:41 pm

Hi Everyone,

The location for the 2010 VCOA National Meet has been announced on the 1800 list.
Here is the copy and paste:

"Well it is now official and I have been given the OK to announce that the Great Lakes Chapter will host the 2010 VCOA National Meet in Western Michigan August 13,14, and 15, 2010! Included as part of the weekend will be a 50th birthday party for the Volvo 1800! A major part of the weekend will be the gathering on Saturday at the Gilmore Car Museum at Hickory Corners MI (near Kalamazoo), but there will be a whole lot of other events including a Sunday cruise to Lake Michigan with lots of opportunity for photo ops with abox lunch at a beach side state park!
For those of you who have been to the Gilmore events, you know it is a very special place, for anyone who has not been here yet, we invite you to start making plans now 'cause it will be a special meet.
Details are still being finalized for hotels and events, costs and the like but our goal is to make this the best possible meet you have ever been to. Details will be forthcoming in Rolling, on our website (www.greatlakesvolvoclub.org) and the National Site www.vcoa.org
As we are still in the planning stages, if you have any suggestions, please email me at president at greatlakesvolvoclub dot org

This will be a blast!!

Hi Everyone,

An update:

I would like to update you an the upcoming VCOA Meet "Volvos at the Gilmore."
The VCOA website now has active registration. The weekends activities
(including two noon meals and the Saturday catered banquet, entrance to the
Gilmore and lots of goodies, dash plaques, t-shirts, etc., a Friday evening
activity {Volvo trivia contest} and a Sunday cruise is $80. There is a planned
50th Birthday party for the 1800 so everyone here should attend! We have even
invited the 1800 designer Pelle Petterson to attend as the guest of honor but
still do not have a definitive answer about that one yet(not do we know if we
can afford him!!)

If you have been to any of our events in the past, you will know the venue is
top notch and the people attending (Volvo people!) are the best!

For more information go to any of the following links

www.puremichigan.com
www.vcoa.org
www.gilmorecarmuseum.org
www.greatlakesvolvoclub.org

or you can email me here or through the Great lakes Club site.

The Meet is August 13, 14, and 15 and the featured hotel is in Kalamazoo and is
in the middle of an upgrade to a Sheraton and will be very very nice, rooms are
$89 per night. Lots to see and do before and after in the area.

It has been a long time since there had been a National Volvo meet in the
midwest and we assure you this will be one you will not forget.
