Reading 17 dates

.

I get asked this question about every 3-4 years, Some want to know why we couldn't move Reading a litter later into early May to have the benefit of warmer weather, both day and evening (and into the wee hours)

Seems the only complaint for this year's meet was the cold and the wind,


In 2016, the first full weekend in May is Mother's day. (May 6-8)

The third weekend (May 20-22) could conflict with college exams or graduation events.
The last weekend of the month (May 27-29) is Memorial Day weekend


FOR 2016, what is your feeling about the second weekend? May 13-15, 2016.


Three weeks later than where it is currently. If interested, wote in the poll to express you interest or preference, to be voted on by serious potential Reading attendees past and present

Would also have to check with the hotel to see if they have any prom/wedding/ other events scheduled at that time.

UPDATE

Just spoke with the Holiday Inn a few minutes ago. They are totally booked for the first two weekends in May (8-10 and 13-15)

This is due to a couple of weddings and a few recurring events which happen every year.

We would not have had a chance even if we had decided much earlier. So I guess tradition continues and we hope for warmer weather.



HOWEVER THEY DO HAVE THE LAST WEEKEND IN APRIL AVAILABLE. THAT WOULD BE APRIL 29-MAY 1, 2016. ONE WEEK LATER.

Re: Reading 17 dates



The dates for Reading 17 are Friday, April 29-Sunday, May 1, 2016.

Morgantown Holiday Inn, Morgantown, PA

This change was based on the two previous polls voted upon by those wanting something a little later for potentially warmer weather.



Hotel registration by phone is (610) 286-3000.
The group code is SVX.

Book online at www.holidayinn.com/morgantownpa

Bummer!!! We will be a vendor at Boxerfest on 5/1 and have a ton of prep work to do leading up to it. I would be happy to send up some goodies again for the event this year!

Re: Reading 17 dates

Would anybody be interested in a drive to the Simeone auto museum Saturday afternoon to see the Subaru exhibition including the pace car? We can get set up for a box lunch at the museum.

I'd definitely be up for this if I were coming this year....

But since I won't be there, I'll go out to "Huck's Museum" and see the Pace Car

I hadn't seen the pace car in person before. I wasn't so into the color, but in person it is growing on me. If yours had the interior as well, then maybe...

You can always dye the interior....

Re: Reading 17 dates

I went to Philly last fall to go to the Mutter Museum and we wanted to go to this museum too but couldn't squeeze it in. Now I am super disappointed to know I missed some Subaru's! I'll be making a weekend of it in the near future!
