Vineyards, we are privileged to offer one of the most beautiful show
locales ever for the Gathering's Participants' Choice Car Show! Stroll

in North Carolina, while enjoying the sight of great
British cars of all marques! Last year, over 300 cars attended
representing over 10 varying marques!
For lunch, you can
bring a picnic or, better yet, sample the wonderful faire offered by
Harvest Grill Restaurant. Also, Shelton's
will offer Hamburgers and soft drinks at the Harvest Grill Express.

will be presented in each class depending on the number of
pre-registered cars in that class.

The Fine Print...
The vineyards are in the rolling foothills
of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You may be parking your car
on a slope during the car show, so having a set of wheel chocks on hand
is a good idea.
Trailer parking will be
available in a parking area by the Registration area just a short 100
yards from the main show area. You are encouraged to arrive early if
you are bringing a trailer.
Individual tents and awnings
are prohibited on the site during the show. Club tents are allowed
within a designated area. If your club is interested in setting up a
tent, contact Steve Ward by April 12th at (704-553-0135)
The car show always features a
treasure trove of British car parts and "automobilia" for sale. If
you're Interested in being a vendor at The Gathering contact Steve Ward
