Out of the Woodwork 2017

Carlisle, PA: May 19-21, 2017

We are on track for Woodwork 2017, which will be held 19-21 May 2017 in Carlisle, PA in conjunction with the Carlisle Import and Performance Nationals. For those who missed last year (or the last several years), this isnít a kit show anymore. Carlisle last year merged the Import & Kit Nationals with the Performance Nationals to form the Import and Performance Nationals. There are still a ton of classic European cars but now theyíre joined by a mass of import/tuner enthusiasts as well. They were still working out the bugs last year but even with poor weather and some confusion we had a great time and it was amazing how many of the Tuner enthusiasts knew TVRs inside and out from video games.

We will again hold a Friday drive for those arriving early and are open to suggestions on a destination. We have gone to most of the local automotive related museums over the past few years. The next closest tour would be the Harley Davidson Plant, however, getting there involves a fair amount of less than scenic roads. Another option might be a drive thru the Gettysburg National Museum but it also would involve a decent drive to get there (about 45 minutes from the hotel on major roads). Of course we donít necessarily need a destination but in recent years the preference has been to shorten the drive time for those traveling in from a distance. Please let your thoughts be known if you have any preference or suggestions email midatlanticRO@tvrccna.org or drop a line 717-203-4573.

Our hotel once again will be the Park Inn Harrisburg West. Please keep an eye on this page as we once again will have a block of rooms and will post the rate information and reservation code as soon as we get them from the hotel. We have the cruise on Friday morning and we will spend the day on the showfield Saturday with a banquet at the hotel Saturday night.

This year we are proud to welcome John Mleczek as our featured guest. John worked for TVR from 1974 to 2007 (third-longest serving TVR employee) and his father was one of the first employees of Grantura Plastics and TVR. John will be joining us for the show and banquet, sharing some stories from the early days of TVR, and bringing some unique items from his collection for the auction. You don't want to miss it.

Please use the links provided for hotel/show registration or you will not get the Club discount. Unfortunately, attendance at Woodwork requires separate registration to the Import & Kit Nationals, but the TVRCCNA board has voted to use club funds to subsidize the Woodwork show - meaning you can enter your TVR into the Woodwork show for free as long as you pay Carlisle Productions their fee to bring it onto the showfield.
