ROA
International Meet

Heartland 2018
Overland Park, KS
June 25-June 28

Centrally located!

Overland Park, located within the Kansas City Metro area is conveniently located in the center of the US. The Double Tree by Hilton, our host hotel, is set in a quiet area surrounded by trees, grass, and many local restaurants. Our cars will be parked in a safe and secluded area designated just for the ROA.

Tours and activities are being finalized. Kansas City, Missouri is only 15 minutes away and offers a city center with many attractions. The most famous is the World War 1 Museum and Memorial. Others include a museum on the history of the Mississippi River, as well as others featuring art, history, sports, and jazz. Access to these attractions is made possible by a light rail within the city. City center also includes many bars and restaurants.

Close to the hotel are several distilleries, a culinary center, coffee grinder, upscale shopping, and many restaurants— a number of which are within walking distance of the hotel. For those who enjoy barbecue, Kansas City is known for theirs and many barbecue restaurants are close by.

As is the ROA custom, we will have a large hospitality/ event room open every day with refreshments and activities. Check out our "Schedule of Events" for times.

On Thursday, our car show with peer judging will be on the property at the DoubleTree from 9 am–2 pm, followed by our Awards Banquet in the evening.

A registration form and final schedule of events will appear in the January/February Riview and on the website, as soon as tours are set.
