Default 2013 PCS International Meet - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Hello All!

Now that the Florida meet has concluded and people are already looking forward to next year's meet judging from some of the posts on this board, I think its time to share some news that I've been sitting on for a couple months.

The hotel has been reserved for the 2013 International Meet, and reservations are being accepted. The official meet hotel is the:

Updated information as of 11/15/2012 Updated information posted in blue.

Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport
6401 South 13th Street
Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53221

http://www.cpmilwaukeeairporthotel.com

The telephone number for reservations is 1-414-764-5300. Simply mention that you're with the Professional Car Society to get the discounted room rate of $89.00 a night (plus local taxes of course). That rate is good for up to two people in a room. Additional adults are $20 per night, additional children 18 and under are $10 per night.



The official meet dates are Wednesday August 21 through Saturday August 24, 2013. Set-aside rooms begin on Tuesday night and last through Saturday night. The hotel is holding the rooms until July 21, 2013 before releasing them for public booking.

The hotel will honor the discounted room rate for two nights before and two nights after those dates.

Set-aside rooms begin on Tuesday August 20th, and last through Saturday August 24th, figuring that most people will check out Sunday morning. The hotel is holding the rooms until July 21, 2013 before releasing them for public booking.

I am looking into the possibility of early-bird activities on Tuesday August 20, but at this time please understand it is only a possibility, not a decided-upon thing.

I also highly encourage members to stay in Milwaukee on Sunday August 25 to attend the Masterpiece Concours d'Elegance. Not only is it an exceptionally high quality display of fine automobiles, but the Masterpiece is being most enthusiastic about us holding our pro-car concours in conjunction with their Club Day event.

Itinerary information can be found at this thread:
http://www.professionalcarsociety.or...ead.php?t=8084

Registration information is still being worked on at this time.

So mark your calendars and make your reservations, but most of all, come to the "Cream City", the "Machine Shop to the World", and "Brew Town", to experience "PCS 2013 - The Meet That Made Milwaukee Famous!"

I've started to save my money for this. As much as I would love to drive my Lincoln to this, I will probably fly . Without any mechanical issues, its more than likely 4 days each way to drive from Seattle plus the time at the meet.

Patrick, thank you for posting the info early. I have never been to Wisconsin, so it is very inviting! If all goes well, we will hope to be there.

Kim and I, along with several other Northlanders are looking forward to attending this meet! In fact, I just made a reservation at the host hotel (the process went very smoothly even with the meet being over a year away.)

Now, to decide which car to show in Milwaukee and which cars to save for 2014...

Default Hated to miss the Florida meet, but...

I plan to be at Milwaukee, and Lisa and I both at Rochester (that's where our gran'kids live). Looking forward to it!

After seeing the site a few weeks ago, I know it will be a great place to have our cars on display.

Looking forward to it since it was announced in Flint earlier this year.

Rest assured Terri and I will be there. It will be like old home week since I used to operate a Holiday Inn in Waukesha, WI just west of Milwaukee.

Currently Terri and I plan on riding the Harley since we're going to the Harley Davison factory the birthplace of our baby.
