The Car Show - Saturday Morning
Maine VCOA Chapter at Stratton 2018
The Autocross - Saturday Afternoon
The Autocross was held at 1 PM in a large overflow parking area just "down the street" from the Welcome Center. The course was set up by a Mini Cooper group as they were also holding a "Mini" meet at Stratton Mt. None the less New Hampshire Chapter member David Burnham (Red 142GT) placed second overall and first in "our class" - non Mini.... Congrats David!!
Dinners, Lunches, Brunches & Speakers
From the time we arrived Friday night until Sunday Morning we were entertained with an auction, a car show, an autocross or a bus trip to Weston and fed pretty much like kings with two great dinners, a lunch and a Sunday Brunch. There were guest speakers at both dinners, apologize as we only have a pic of one of the speakers, Volvo Cars USA Vice President Customer Services Scott Doering. For those of you who either know or have met, he's a very personable and interesting gentleman who gave a great talk about Volvo USA and its direction since it's inception here and for the future, that most of us found interesting to say the least!!
Sunday - it was over all too quickly
Sunday went by in mere moments as brunch was at 9 AM and check out was 11 AM. After brunch the "heavy hearted " task of say goodbye to the many new acquaintances and old friends became all consuming. It seemed as quick as we'd arrived on Friday, we were back at the "Welcome Center" turning in our "keys" and anticipating the journey home albeit much too quickly. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the 35th Anniversary meet and she's even hinted (as she's retiring) at the possibility of going to next years National Meet!!!
