This year’s Gathering of the Faithful is going to be another special event.  The majority of our activities will be held on or near hotel property or a stone’s throw away at the Daytona International Speedway so we will not have to be concerned with the traffic.  The area has many restaurants and shops within a very short walk.  We will have our Thursday welcome reception at the hotel with cocktails and “heavy” hors d’ oeuvres.  Friday will bring your choice of two drives, one route planned is for the Ormond Loop with lunch at the beautiful Halifax Plantation Golf Club and the second is that we arranged a tour of a private micro car collection.  Our Friday evening reception will include the tech quiz that Steve Hoffman makes so much fun.  Our Saturday morning concours will be held at the hotel’s winner’s circle.  We will visit the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America at the Speedway. And of course, that evening we will have our Awards Banquet. Sunday morning is our member meeting for all to share their thoughts and plans. Finally, that afternoon we have the opportunity to drive (parade lap) on the famous oval track at the speedway.
