Overland Expo - East 2014

http://www.overlandexpo.com/news/201...expo-east.html

Looks like they're bringing an Overland Expo event to western NC. I know this will be a more feasible option for the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic crowd.

If it's just a bunch of vendors I'll probably pass as I'm not one for $300 camp chairs but if there's classes and other things to do I'll probably head up.

there will be. should be a full curriculum. it won't be as big in the first couple years, but it'll build up like the west event did.

Same weekend as the ROAV Mid-Atlantic Rally..... Located in Giles County, VA (near Blacksburg,VA) - about 200 miles apart.....

Look at Conclave dates in September and URE dates in October, too.

you have a link handy for both of those events? I'll send them to Roseanne for consideration. They are not from the East Coast so probably don't know the competing landscape.

URE11 is not published yet for 2014 but will probably fall on similar weekend as last year (http://onslrs.org/)

I think the Conclave is set for Sept 18-21. http://www.conclaveoffroad.com/


But do not misunderstand... I want to go to the Overland Expo East, too!!!!

I feel obliged to invite members to a grilling session at my shop if there is any interest. I am located 5 miles from the event site so it would be rather convenient.

Also, if it helps with anyone's logistics, I am willing to receive and store any gear or what have you if it makes it any easier for you to attend the event.

Roseann and I spoke by telephone yesterday. Good person - happy personality - lots of enthusiasm.

It looks like the Expo folks already have their date locked in (just like the ROAV/MAR team). The Expo folks are a multi-brand Expo and have conflicts with other non-Land Rover brand events, too. The Fall is such a real popular time for events in the Mid-Atlantic Area (some of the best weather and leaf peeping time).

She said that the Expo folks are willing to work with the MAR planners - possibly doing some cross promotion and building on some synergy. We will get it worked out.
