This event is rain or shine April 22, 23,24

This event is one of the best we attend each year. It is open to all British marques; featured this year is the TVR.

The event is put on by the TCOC, Trumph Club of the Carolinas. Over the years they have had 500+/- cars entered. In the past couple years it have dropped to mid 300s; due to weather, Covid, etc.

The event includes Blue Ridge tour, auction (car stuff(, Ladies night out, Participants car show, Saturday night BBQ, and a tasting at the local Winery. The event is held between the local Hampton Inn and the grounds of that Vineyard - Shelton Vineyards. Both are located near Dobson, NC which is just off Rt77 20 minutes south of Va. state line.

There is both information of this event at the club web site and a registration form.

This is a wonderful event we must support there are few left of this caliber.

This is a three day event with Friday being the Blue Ridge tour and a chance to meet and greet while checking everyone else's car and the auction with beer and pizza supplied.
Saturday is the main event on the grounds of the vineyard with BBQ.
Sunday is laid back and travel to home.

The Gathering? April 22-24. Most of us only stay for Saturday and leave afterwards normally around 3PM. But the drive there is about 3 hours using highways, a bit more on back roads. It can be done in one day. We tend to enjoy Friday evening social aspect.
