The registration form will be posted soon!

The location of the ROA annual meet changes each year. We do this to give members who want to attend, an opportunity to drive a reasonable distance to share the enjoyment of owning one of America’s finest automobile.

We selected Kalamazoo for two key reasons. First, we have a high concentration of members 500 to1,000 miles of Kalamazoo, Mi, including many who have never attended a meet previously. Second, Kalamazoo is the location of one of Americas, finest collector auto museum. The Gilmore Museum was started in 1963 by Don Gilmore and has grown to almost 500 cars stored on a 90-acre campus. Some 400 of these cars are on display and rotated frequently.

We have secured the excellent Four Points by Sheraton as our host hotel. And there’s plenty more to see and do in the area. For those interested in aerospace, the world-class Air Zoo is less than three miles from our host hotel. This museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian and houses more than 100 unique aircraft and spacecraft.

ROA registration form will appear in the November /December issue of the Riview.
