My definition of a National Meet would be (and everyone will think differently)
1. A main location, with other attraction than a car show if others (family) want something else to do.
2. An actual show with awards, being a National Meet, I think some hold that special to win an award at the highest show level.
3. A possible cruise or late evening or early secondary venue to meet up at or drive in convoy.
4. A schedule of events (meaning this is going to be here from these times, then this will take place at these times)
Again, I'm not trying to take away the National Meet from any group, I'm simply putting our bid into the hat for 2017, so that we can prepare for trial runs, funding, and the details
If another group has something better to offer, lets hear it. Its a big commitment and far and few areas are willing to volunteer for such a show, but I felt we could pull off something nice in our area.
