United 2010

Postby 2Tigers+ » Sun Jun 07, 2009 5:13 am

TE/AE United 2010
Midcoast Maine
Rockport – Rockland – Owls Head
October 8 – 11, 2010

The United meeting of Tigers East/Alpines East be held in the midcoast region of Maine on Columbus Day weekend (Oct. 8 – 11) in 2010.

Location:
The events and other activities will be held at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, ME http://www.samosetresort.com/, at the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Owls Head, ME http://www.ohtm.org/ and in the surrounding area. OHTM will be holding their annual Foreign Auto Festival & Antique Aeroplane Show on Sunday, October 10, 2010. The museum is very interested in having TE/AE as the featured Club at the event. The Samoset is a four-star resort situated on the shore of Penobscot Bay and offers many amenities and activities for its guests. The Owls Head Transportation Museum houses a large collection of antique and classic cars and airplanes and has facilities to host many activities. OHTM and The Samoset are located about 15 minutes apart.

Activities:
Parts Room
Hospitality Suite
Registration
Dinner Cruise – from Rockland and/or Port Clyde
Lobster Bake
Road Rally/Tour of Local Area
Concours
Autocross
Museum Tour at OHTM
Tech Session(s)
Awards Banquet
TAC Inspection
Other activities TBD

Costs:
We have a commitment from the Samoset to offer rooms at the rate of $119 per night. This is quite reasonable, since the usual, in-season, rate is $259. This includes the use of all the facilities the Samoset offers.

We anticipate that the autocross will be held at OHTM in their parking lot.

We plan to offer a dinner cruise in the waters around Rockland Harbor, probably on Friday night and a lobster bake on Saturday, perhaps at the autocross location. These will be voluntary activities for which we have not gathered prices/costs.

Other Notes:
As noted above, OHTM will be holding their annual Foreign Car Show and Antique Airplane Exhibition on Sunday, October 10 at which TE/AE will be the featured club. The museum is interested in having our concours along with their show and will arrange space for the task.

Since OHTM will have their show on Sunday, it will necessitate TE/AE having the autocross on Saturday, on the paved area at OHTM adjacent to the museum. It will also be possible to have a Lobster Bake/Picnic at the same location, afterwards, for those interested in the real flavor of Maine. While the autocross is taking place, we propose to have a local tour/rallye to take in some of the sights of the area, such as the changing fall colors and the lighthouse at Marshall Point (http://www.marshallpoint.org/)

There are many interesting things to see and do in the area and we will endeavor to arrange visits to some points of interest such as the Farnsworth Art Museum http://www.farnsworthmuseum.org/ and the Maine Lighthouse Museum http://www.mainelighthousemuseum.com/ as well as other spots in and around Rockland in addition to the activities already mentioned.

Contact has been made with Don Axe, former Director of Design for Rootes, to be our banquet speaker.

Congratulations to Dave Monroe and Carol Ferguson, Nova Scotia, Canada, as the 50th official registration for Rootes United 2010! They have won the Biplane ride for two at the Owls Head Museum. The ride includes a fly over the event and a scenic tour up the Maine coast for 20 minutes in a 1933 Waco, a value of $350. (See http://www.ohtm.org/FlyCircPage.html for details).
Samoset has received over 70 room reservations to date; however, only 50 registration forms for the event have been received. We have found that people are registered for various United activities, including the banquet, but some room reservations are inconsistent with the times of the events. We are trying to create a system of “checks and balances” by cross referencing the registration forms activities with the room reservation dates at the Samoset. In this way, we can identify any discrepancies and notify you.
We urge you to REGISTER BY September 16 and if you registrant #75, I will donate an unused biplane ride one which I won at Owls Head Transportation Museum last year. September 16 is also the closeout date for any of our block of rooms in the Rockland area.
