2014 Indy Meet
« on: April 21, 2013, 05:53:41 PM »
I was wondering if there was any news on the 2014 Indy Meet. Last year members were asked about if they wanted to return to Indy or not after the sad event of 2009. Like some folks I like to to know what is on the radar so that I can plan my time accordingly. Are we going back to Indy in 2014 or will we be going some place new.

I have very good news Joe, the vote was overwhelming in favor of returning to Indy in 2014. We are in the process of picking the host hotel as we speak and it should be a terrific show. Security is on the top of the list and we will not have a repeat of 2009. I am really looking forward to reuniting my Delta 88 Festival car with Indy.   :)

I talked to Kurt Karch & he said they were looking at the Fairfield Inn in Avon Illinois.  Which I guess is 4 or 5 miles away from the last Crap hole we stayed in......  That's what I have heard.  What do you know Joe?

Generally the next year's nationals aren't announced until the nationals, but yes, we will be returning to Indy as Brenda said.  The officers and nationals host are giving careful consideration to the location of the host hotel and more details will be announced in Florida, and in the newsletter following that meet.

I contacted a friend of mine whos brother lives in the Indy area. I had him pick his brothers brain for me and it seems that the Northern part of Indy would be the place to stay. He works for a large chain store and knows some stats since he is in charge of the area stores. So I looked at a map and found three towns on the North part of the loop around Indy. They are Zionsville, Carmel, and Fishers. From my phone conversation with my friend I remember him mentioning Fishers and Carmel. I also noticed that Avon does look to close to where we stayed in 2009.

I think even Meister was saying that Carmel is quite a bit of a nicer area to stay as well.  Plus it has a Max & Erma's close by the Hampton Hotel, which is an EXCELLENT place to stay! It's a win win with that combo!

Okay so at the national meet in Orlando we found out that the meet for 2014 would be back in Indianapolis Indiana. The date was not given but might it be the weekend before the OCA national meet in Cincinnati Ohio? Just wondering since it may be good for those who belong to both groups to possibly make both shows.

The host hotel has been chosen for the Indy meet.  We will be staying at the Renaissance hotel in Carmel.  Wes and I visited this hotel earlier this year and were very impressed with it.  They told me they are willing to block off a section of the parking lot for our cars, and we will have overnight security, as we've had every year since 2009.  The dates for 2014 haven't been finalized yet, but we're tentatively looking at July 10-12.  As soon as the dates are final, it will be in the newsletter and I'll try to remember to post another reply here as well.
