2017 H/OCA National Meet is heading back to Chicago, July 6 to July 8, 2016. We are planning the 2017 meet at the Pheasant Run Resort
in historic St. Charles, Illinois. The resort has unique combination of onsite entertainment, recreation,
delicious dining, and sprawling venues that have established Pheasant Run Resort as a Midwestern treasure.
several room options for anyone to choose, they are as follows and can be
viewed on the resort website as well…
Thursday starts with our Welcome Party, Registration and Club Sales in the Arnold Palmer suite at Pheasant Run. The club will be arranging for snacks and refreshments via the resort for those attending. There is also a bar area right around the corner from our Welcome Party. Expect ‘loaded’ goodie bags and some surprises whenever you obtain your registration.
Friday at 9:00am will see us making our trip to the Volo Auto Museum in Volo, IL, about 1 hour due North of the resort. We will have our own parking area at Volo and several hours to explore the vast array of Muscle Cars, TV & Movie Cars, Luxury & Exotic Cars, Military Vehicles, Tractors, Bicycles, Antiques and collectables and much more. You will have hours to explore all of this and will plan to leave around 2:00pm for those who choose to caravan back to the resort. Friday afternoon registration will be provided again in the Arnold Palmer Suite. We are planning a Friday night Cruise Night in Wheaton, IL for those who have not had enough Friday car activities, leaving the resort around 5:00pm to arrive in Wheaton before 6:00pm. For those who want to ‘chill’ feel free to explore the resort or downtown St. Charles. Pheasant Run will also provide a shuttle van to downtown St. Charles of which more details will be provided.
Our Saturday car show will be held right on the grounds of the Pheasant Run resort registration will also be provided on the show field. The Resort will have an exclusive parking area set aside for our needs in the front of the resort, many car clubs have utilized this area. Around 11:00 am we will have a Meguiar’s local representative, Ric Murphy provide a complete car detailing workshop. Topics such as Clay Bar usage on painted, chrome and glass surfaces, Spray Detailer, Car Wax, hand application and dual action polishers. The intention is to be shown how easy it will be to achieve great results and to remove any fear of working on a car’s painted surface by using correct procedures via hand application or via a dual action polisher. Ric will also need a volunteer or two that can provide a car with ‘black’ paint to demonstrate how to eliminate swirl marks and other procedures…
