Northwest Regional Model A Meet - September 14 - 18

The Inland Empire A’s in Spokane, WA are inviting you to a HUB Tour this coming September 14-18th. As Vice Chair of the NWRG I, and the rest of your NWRG officers, would like to extend an invitation to participate. Below you will find a flyer describing the available tours, a registration sheet and a map of close by hotels if you don’t like the one the Empire A’s picked out as the host hotel.

This tour was scheduled for 2020; however, was cancelled due to COVID concerns. Note that this tour is limited to the first 100 NWRG members and will be opened up to the general Model A public after June 15, 2022. If, for any reason, the HUB tour is cancelled your registration payment will be refunded. If our Canadian members can’t get across the border, your registration payment will be refunded.

To participare, you will need to print out the registration and mail it to the Inland Empire A’s, or print it, scan it and email your registration to the Inland Empire A’s. I know I’ve missed seeing all of my Model A friends and I hope to see you this September in Spokane.
