    Default Jefferson Meet 2018

    It was rumored to me yesterday from a friend that lives in PA, not far from Jefferson, that over the last several weeks there has been so much rain that the hillclimb this weekend has been cancelled and the AMCA meet is downsizing to just prepaid vendors. Is there anyone on this forum, that is part of organizing the Jefferson meet, know if any of this is true? Thanks.

    The Jefferson meet seems to always be muddy and wet but with all the rains lately, I'm wondering what kind of condition the grounds will be for the meet???

    We are going to the Keystone Collective Show that Saturday night in Lancaster, was planning on trying to get to the Jefferson Meet Saturday early and maybe even Friday. Would like to know as well if plans are changing.

    Hi Bob - I'm a member of the Chesapeake Chapter so here is an update. Yes the Mid-Atlantic has what seems to have been several months of nothing but rain and everywhere you go the ground is saturated. White Rose did cancel their July 28, 2018 Hillclimb due to flooding. But the latest on the White Rose Motorcycle Club website says this about the September 2018 Hillclimb.

    "After receiving much interest in having a Night Hillclimb event, we are now changing our previously scheduled September 23 Hillclimb event to a September 22 Night Hillclimb." So there will be a hillclimb at White Rose this Saturday night September 22.

    In regard to the Chesapeake Chapter AMCA Meet nothing has changed. While there may be some opportunity for on-site procuring of vendor spots we always just focus on pre-paid vendor arrangements. 143 vendors have paid to participate as of last night at Chesapeake Monthly Meeting. Chesapeake will have two tents for judging as we did for 2017.

    We are in need of some judges so if anyone can lend a hand check in with me at the judging admin table in the dining hall. We have 33 preregistered for judging 10 of which are Winner Circle already. There is a range of motorcycles American, British, European and Japanese and we usually have a good number of people drop in for judging as well.

    Hog wash! I know with all certainty that on Thursday morning I will be driving to see my friends for the last time this season in a mud pit dotted with tiny duck ponds. Surfs up!

    Thanks for the update, hope to make it there early Saturday morning. And I took the ANS tires off my bike, lets hope the mud is at a minimum.

    Would love to see pictures of the Jefferson meet. I still believe Jefferson is the most beautiful location for a vintage motorcycle meet on the AMCA schedule. Even when it's wet, it pretty.

    The forecast says rain today, tomorrow and heavy rain on Wed., just in time. Looks like Bob will get to see his ducks this year. I'm going to the bank this afternoon to get money for the PA turnpike!DSC04295.jpg Here's one from 2013 of the hill.
