Save the Date - 2020 Western National Meet
This is the one that you will remember!
Plan to spend a lovely and exciting mid-September of 2020 in beautiful and colorful Colorado. The HI-Country Regional Group (#28) is hosting the Western National Meet in Alamosa, Colorado, and you will definitely want to be there. Where the heck is Alamosa you might logically ask? Well, Alamosa is located in the south-central part of Colorado not all that far from the nearby New Mexico border, and is probably a part of the state you’ve not yet visited. Clear blue sky, bright sunshine, interesting things to see and do, lightly traveled roads, and majestic purple peaks in the distance. Need we say more? Surrounded by mountains on the north, east, and west, Alamosa is big city in services but small town in its friendly feel and it has all the amenities that you will need or want.
This will be the 5th National Meet presented by Regional Group #28, so we do have some experience. Starting with “Colorado Drive ’75”, we have hosted a meet in every decade since. All are remembered fondly by those who participated, and so it will also be this time. Naturally, Alamosa 2020 will have all the basics that you have come to expect from a meet: judging and the concourse, seminars, the National President’s meeting, the Foundation report, door prizes, a swap meet, welcome-in activities, a raffle, as well as awards festivities. Of course, we’ll work hard at adding a distinct “western flavor”. Did we mention the “must do” driving tour that you definitely will not want to miss? And best of all (and not to be taken lightly), you will have great opportunities to meet, greet, and socialize with all of your Club friends, not to mention the chance to meet new folks.
But there is more; much more to capture your interest and attention. Great things that you will want to see, do, and experience while you are in Colorado.
More information and registration information will be available later this year.
Location: Alamosa, Colorado
