Nassam 2019

Now that NASSAM 2017 is over it is time to put serious thought and action into 2019. I will speak from recent experience and say that one year is not enough time to effectively plan this event, so now is the time for a decision to be made.

There are rumors about interest in Georgia and in the Adirondacks. Are those serious considerations, and is anyone else interested in hosting 2019?

Let me stir the pot a little with this: I am putting preliminary plans in motion to repeat in Lexington, so if someone doesn't step up you're going to be stuck with us again!

I left my comments in your post on SkyRoadster. I agree.

You and everyone who contributed did a great job! The runs were great. There is certainly much more to see and enjoy in KY. The dinner was super, the BBQ was good and the hotel arrangements were good. It was pretty relaxed for the attendees and everyone seemed to be enjoying their time. I appreciate that you stepped up and would look forward to returning to KY. I'll PM you with thoughts for another KY NASSAM. Thanks for all of your efforts!

Hiawassee, Georgia...nice little town and access to mountain driving and sights to see in surrounding towns. Near Brasstown Bald, highest point in Georgia. On Lake chatuge.

Street Rodders, motorcycle groups, etc use this location frequently. I hope to attend an MG GOF event in Dillard, about 40 miles from Hiawassee, in September.

If I had my way, I would relocate to Hiawassee in a heartbeat, but Momma says no...

Thank you to you and your team for 2017. I could only be there for two nights as we are moving ( in the middle of it as I type this). Great. Event and great job!

It would be nice to have a location that does not have high humidity and heat in June. :-)

I thought it would be cool if it rotated on a three year cycle... west coast, central US, east coast, repeat. East was this year, central is next, seems west should be 2019.

That was the goal a few years ago but now it ends up wherever those who are willing to undertake the organization.

MomsSol said it, the event is hosted by someone willing, and that person's (or group of persons') location determines where it will be. It has generally gone more-or-less East-to-West, but that isn't a rule.

Were you volunteering?

I seem to remember from previous threads that there were too many issues for vendors with the border, but I would have liked to see something in Canada.

IIRC it has to do with getting tools and products into Canada.
I too would have liked for Canada to host a national meet .... that's why the meet was named North America Solstice Sky Meet (since changed to NASSAM)
