You do not have to be a PAC member to register and attend the events. However, if you want your car judged, then you do have to be a PAC member.

Technically, the public is welcome to look at the cars while they are in town. But this is still a private, week-long series of events that are open only to the registered attendees.

There are numerous campgrounds in the Traverse City area - just do a quick Google search and you will find many options and all are close to the host hotel.

I understand that most of the event is for PAC members but I am not a member at this time.

Is there a schedule of events? Is there a time were cars will be visible for the public? How about a SWAP meet?

I would not mind driving up for a day but I need more info and I can't find it on the club website.

Thanks

Yes, there is a schedule of events. Open the registration form on the PAC website to see it.

Yes, many of the cars will be in the host hotel parking lot before driving tours begin for the day, and after they return. You need to be registered for the event to attend Concours Day.

No, not a SWAP Meet as such but there will be a large vendor area with parts on display and for sale but technically this is an event open only to those who have registered for the meet. Why not join PAC, support the Packard fraternity, register for the event and enjoy as much of it as you wish? The value of the publications alone should justify the dues.

Save some money!

Only 2 weeks to go until early registration ends - on April 15 late fees kick in and you will pay more.

This year's meet is on track to be the largest meet in the last ten years and potentially could be the largest meet since the 1999 Centennial.

As you are already aware the host hotel has been oversold for months. Currently the Fairfield by Marriott has discounted rooms at $114 per night - that is $99 off their rate shown on TripAdvisor.com. Click onto the Fairfield site here:http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/tvcfi-fairfield-inn-and-suites-traverse-city/?pid=corptbta&scid=b661a3c4-9c47-48c8-9e13-75b66089dd79

When you click onto the link you do the following:
1. Use the calendars to select you check-in and check-out dates
2. To the right of the calendars is a box that says, "Special Rates"
3. When you click onto it a drop-down list appears - select "Corporate/Promo Code"
4. Type in the discount code "TPCT" - as in The Packard Club Traverse

Hope to see you there.

I am pretty sure I will be attending with my 733. It is down to final cut and buff and then pinstripe.

I was going to bring the 34, but driving back from the Texas meet in Kerrville I had a major breakdown. Something let go in the engine. Which sucks since it has only 300 miles on it since it's rebuild.

Looking forward to seeing to folks.

I'm sorry to hear about your 34! I was listening to it yesterday and I couldn't believe how whisper quiet it was.

Tom, really upsetting news about the engine in the '34. It was absolutely stunning at the show on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully, the sounds it made are worse than the condition, and it can easily be put back in proper running order.
