2016 National Meet
Swedish Speed and Style
Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association in conjunction with Road America and Volvo Cars of America
After a fantastic meet last fall at Hilton Head joining forces with Volvo Cars making a grand presence at the Motoring Festival, we have been invited to be part of the vintage race weekend at Road America, again joining with the Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association and Volvo Cars (and others yet to be named); this year's meet might even top Hilton Head.
VCOA Host Hotel: Osthoff Resort
Our host hotel is the Osthoff Resort - group prices for rooms have been negotiated and may be booked simply be calling 800-876-3399, identifying yourself as VCOA members - these rates are NOT available online, you must call! This is always a popular weekend and often sells out early in the year, so book now. Listed below are alternative lodging sites if you prefer.
The full agenda of activities is still being developed and until frozen, the registration details and weekend fees are not yet available. When they are, this is the first place they'll be posted along with periodic messages via eRolling and Rolling magazine.

Annual National Meets
Each year, the VCOA Board of Directors along with a Host Chapter organize a multi-day National Meet. Held at various locations nation wide, these meets allow members from all regions to participate. National Meets have been held from New Hampshire to Florida, New Jersey to Michigan and Kansas to California. Meets usually begin on Friday as members arrive throughout the day for an evening reception, Saturday events often include a car show, technical forums, driving activities, and non-automotive activities for the family. Saturday evening concludes with a banquet, awards ceremony and keynote guest speaker.
Sunday features another interesting and often unusual event prior to the conclusion of the meet. Attendees have toured automotive collections, restoration shops, local attractions, museums and many other sites that one would not otherwise have the opportunity to explore. Again a club offering its members something they can't find or do online or anywhere else.
