Memorial Day Weekend
May 24-28, 2018
Please join us for the 64th Annual Eastern Spring Meet in the Poconos, Pennsylvania. We will be enjoying this classic vacation spot, visiting some incredible sites, and showing off our ACD cars while re-connecting with friends. This meet promises to offer something for everyone, and some new activities as well. Some of the exciting things that we will be doing this year include:
- Staying at Airy Casino and Resort
- Visiting Crankers Collection of Mechanical Marvels – owned by club member Hank Antoniolli
- Driving to Bushkill Falls – the most impressive waterfall outside of Niagara
- Exploring the Dorflinger Wildlife Sanctuary & Glass Museum
- Optional Concert at Mt. Airy on Saturday Night
- And much more….
This year is a casual meet – there will be no formal dress up events, but Sunday evening we encourage everyone to dress in vintage clothing for the final banquet.
Check-in will be at Mt. Airy Resort starting Thursday around 2PM. Registration will be in the Hospitality Suite. The hospitality suite will be open for catching up with friends. We will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy each other’s company this weekend and we hope that you will join us for some good ACD fun.
This year, we will be staying at Mt. Airy Casino and Resort. We have full access to all aspects of the Resort. There is an incredible indoor pool, with a bar and lounge areas. There is a SPA for those who want to relax and rejuvenate. And across the lake, there is a beautiful golf course for any of you who want to play a round. And of course, There is a full Casino, open 24 hours. There may even be an ACD blackjack tournament. There will be activities planned and driving on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be a free day for you and your family. We’ll provide a list of local things to do, and places to visit if you choose, or you can relax at the resort, hang out around the cars, or check out any of the Resort activities. Saturday evening, there will be a concert at the Resort, and we are looking at getting discounted tickets for anyone who wants to kick it up a notch with some hot groups and performers from the 90’s.
Please note that because our event is being hosted at a casino, kids under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult when visiting the stores or restaurants located on the casino floor. Our Sunday show and judging will be a public affair, located in a reserved parking area in front of the Resort. This will be a great time to meet people, evangelize the ACD Club, and show off your car. If you have not brought an ACD car to a Spring Meet in a few years, this will be a great opportunity to bring your car out and show it off. And remember, it’s the Year of the Speedster, so we’ll have special parking for any original Speedsters that come to the meet this year.
We have a full committee of folks working to make this a fun family event with a lot of things to do as well as giving you plenty of free time to relax and enjoy the full excitement of the Pocono Mountains. If you have any questions, please contact Lindsey ((201) 739-9254) or Tom (610-212-5047) and we’ll be happy to answer them for you.
We look forward to seeing you all in the Poconos this Memorial Day Weekend!
