Land Rovers at Overland Expo East - 2017

The organizers of Overland Expo East have offered us a discount coupon worth 10% off registration for the Overland Expo East Event at Biltmore from September 29- Oct 1.
I had asked that we be given a reserved area for the Land Rovers in the field where all of the participants set up camp. They responded that if we can get more than 10 vehicles to register we can have a special camping area and by using the coupon code as follows OX17ECLUBLR you can also qualify for a 10% discount on your registration if it is purchased before August 15. Here is a copy of the communique from Allison DeLapp, Assistant Director - Overland Expo. Our contact will be Cyan Samone who is the club coordinator.


Hi Jack,

Your code is: OX17ECLUBLR


It will be good for the discount (10%) for any camping ticket: Overland Experience, or Weekend Pass with Camping.


Visit our website to purchase tickets: http://www.overlandexpo.com/attend-east


We will require a minimum of 10 vehicles / motos to get the discount, and Iíve set the code to track that.


Couple of new things:


- This year the Biltmore entrance fee is included in the pricing.
- Youth ages 10-17 cost $15 for the weekend. Under 10 are free. Add those tickets at checkout.
- For Overland Experience tickets, if itís a single person who wants to add a spouse who is not taking classes, that can be added for $95; add that ticket at checkout.
- Itís your responsibility to arrive and hold your own group area and work with the camping staff if needed.


Please as always note the VEHICLE / TRAILER SIZE RESTRICTIONS on the FAQ. Nothing over 30 feet and no big trailers (standing headroom) ó no ATVs, no toy haulers. https://www.overlandexpo.com/faq/#east


Thanks!


We had 65 Land Rovers at the first Expo East three years ago so we should have no problems meeting the 10 truck minimum. There should be that many from Solaros alone. Lets get CROC, ROAV, Old North State, FLRC and any other Rover clubs I haven't mentioned (as well as any Land Rover owners unaffiliated with a club) on board so we can show the crowds a wide example of everyone's favorite expedition vehicle.

I went the first year and had a really good time. It was my first East Coast Rover event and was certainly not my last. I plan to attend this one too if my truck continues to cooperate.

Got it handled ..


From the expo folks -
The ticket purchase window has blue text in the corner that says Enter Promotional Code (in case anyone else in your group asks!)


It's easy to miss

So far we only have six Land Rovers signed up in advance for Overland Expo - we need 10 to make the discount happen. The window is closing so register this week.

You guys should come to the Rover Owners Assoc of Virgina's Mid-Atlantic Rally.

Jack, we are going to be buying a day pass only for Saturday. Will that help? Or will that not count? If it helps, my wife and I will sign up as individuals rather than a couple.

I'd say a mix of 20 years on tanks, a lifetime of 4 wheel drive, and a lot of scotch and cigars in the jungles of Guatemala with Graham Jackson and NLX.

they are great guys. alot of fellowship
