Default Same dates as GTOAA

Why did you schedule the POCI convention on the GTOAA dates? I am a member of both and can only attend one now. I know there was an agreement with GTOAA and POCI that the last week of June and the first week of July belonged to GTOAA.

my understanding is that it was related to the dates that the TN host hotel had open for us, very limited selection (maybe the only summer week available?)

But POCI had an agreement with GTOAA NOT to schedule on each others dates. No excuse. Find another location on a different date.

POCI not getting along with GTOAA is a joke. I’ve been a POCI member for 30 years and the best thing they ever did was check their ego at the door and have the Co-Vention.

After the dismal Dallas POCI I quit traveling for it. I will still support the club and pay my dues but if POCI wants to survive they need to realize this is one hobby and make the most of it.

Btw I am not a member of GTOAA - it’s just obvious there are better solutions than having the show the same week when you have a limited number of attendees.

Two clubs. May not like each other. Dwindling and dying membership in both. I have a great idea. Lets have both National Conventions on the same weekend, 405 miles apart. Brilliant. I think the Co-Vention in Dayton was one of the best since joining POCI in 1976. There had to be a way to separate these two events.

Where can we find a notional schedule for the 2023 POCI week? All I can find is "Monday-Saturday" and I can't find a previous year's event schedule as an example online either. I can't make it to Illinois for the GTOAA since I'll be in OK on June 26. Bummed I had to miss Kingsport.

Thanks.

I'll be there with my 65 GTO. Maybe you need to give everyone a tour of your collection while we are there!

How about a co-vention every year. One year POCI runs it- the next year GTOAA runs it. Is this idea just too easy?
