This year, it is Ontario's turn to host this meet.  Our first sanctioned meet was held in Goderich, Ontario in 1992.

We hope that you will plan to attend the largest ACD event in all of Canada.  

Thursday is arrival and check-in day with time to visit the Peter Kelly collection and check the progress of his Duesensberg.

On Friday, we will drive to Walkerton to tour Canada's leading water treatment training facility and see some antique car collections.  We will be joined for lunch by two of the local car clubs with their cars.

On Saturday, we will tour the Bruce Nuclear facility, one of the largest of its kind in the world. In the afternoon, we will tour a cheese factory and a historic lighthouse. Our farewell banquet will be that evening and will be followed by the ever popular old car BINGO game.

Twenty rooms have been reserved at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Kincardine at a rate of $149 per night which includes a continental breakfast.  Call 1-519-395-2665 to make a reservation.   

If you have any questions or feel that you need any other information, please contact us at 1-226-622-7454 or by email.  We don't know how to send you pictures from the hotel website or from the tourism website to include with the information. Could you please add Linda & Ian Johnson to the contact list for the meet?  Thanks!

In the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s Connersville, Indiana had the honor of sharing its historical significance to the Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg Automobiles through an ACD Mini-meet held in June of each year. Many of the facilities used in the manufacture of these cars would be visited, as well other points of interest throughout the community. We also had the pleasure of having many of the former employees in attendance at the meets, enhancing the historical story through their experiences. 

This meet would compliment the link between Auburn and Connersville through the ACD cars. 

Two years ago a contingent of Australian ACD members, on their way to Auburn, visited Connersville and were hosted by local members, Sam and Cathy Harvey. The Australians enjoyed themselves so much that Connersville hosted a non ACD Club sanctioned meet three days before the Auburn Reunion this year for the Australians and some of the US and Canadian membership. The meet was a great success for all and many wanted it to become an annual event. As a result, the ACD Board of Directors have granted Connersville the opportunity to have a sanctioned meet beginning in 2019, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 10-12. And so----WE’RE BACK, BABY! 

If you want to stay locally, reservations can be made at the Woodridge Inn by calling 765-825- 4800. Twenty rooms have been reserved for the meet, so mention you will be coming for the ACD meet. Local contacts include ACD members, Sam and Cathy Harvey, (765) 827-0230

The Auburn Warm-Up meet is fast approaching. Jack, Luci, Gretchen, and Michelle have  been working to put together a great weekend for everyone. This year will be the 20th year  for the Warm-Up meet. Our itinerary is still a work in progress, but here is what we have so  far.   

Friday, June 7, 2019  We will meet and depart from the Baymont Inn in Auburn, IN. Our first stop of the day is a  tour of the ​Fort Wayne TinCaps​, a Class A minor league baseball team. The name  TinCaps was chosen in 2008 alluding to John Chapman, better known as “Johnny  Appleseed”. The Tin Cap refers to a fictional depiction of him wearing a cooking pot as a  hat in an 1948 Disney movie. Lunch will be provided at the stadium. Next up is a tour of the  Fort Wayne Firefighters’ Museum​. The museum is housed in the 1893 built Fire Station #3  building in downtown Fort Wayne. Almost all of the artifacts on display were once used by  the Fort Wayne Fire Department. Late in the afternoon, we will tour ​Auburn Gear. ​ Auburn  Gear is a leading designer and manufacturer of custom engineered wheel drives, axle  drive components, and specialty drives and solutions for diverse mobile equipment  applications. The evening will conclude with catered dinner.   

Saturday, June 8, 2019  We will meet and depart from the Baymont Inn in Auburn, IN. Our first stop of the day is  Huntington, IN. We will tour ​The Sweet Life Honey Farm​, a local business started when a  nursing student took on a hobby of raising bees after a discussion in a chemistry class.  Since then, she has researched the the properties/use of honey and her hobby turned into  a small business. Lunch will be provided in Huntington. After lunch, we will tour a local ​Car  Collection/Museum​. Once we’ve had time to enjoy the automobile collection, we will  head north...probably making a stop for some ice cream along the way! After returning to  Auburn, catered dinner will be provided.   

Sunday, June 9, 2019  Before you return home, join us for catered breakfast in the hotel conference room.
