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  (www.samosetresort.com), at the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Owls Head (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 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 (www.marshallpoint.org)

Other points of interest:

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(www.farnsworthmuseum.org) and the Maine Lighthouse Museum (www.mainelighthousemuseum.com) as well as other spots in and around Rockland in addition to the activities already mentioned.

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