I'm all in! Maybe call or write to their convention office for a pitch. I know nothing about travel but seems to be a top choice. Probably crowded in season.

I am going to start some soft inquiries into lodging in northern Arkansas in early to mid october 2020. A nice fall foliage cruise through the ozarks sounds amazing and I dont think there is nearly enough interest at this early stage for a poll prior to preliminary planning. My plan is to drive up then fly my wife in for the weekend since she will be working, assuming I take a week off for it.

I'd be interested in attending a drive in meet. As a suggestion last weekend was at Fontana Lodge North Carolina , they cater to multiple single brand car groups and there are multiple driving roads in the area. (most famous Tail of the Dragon) .

Distance not much of a factor for me , it was 5400 km round trip to North Carolina.

So unforrunately this is going to be a no-go, at least for me. Our hospital is on lockdown and everyone's vacation has been cancelled until summer at least. Due to that, those of us with fall vacation time planned have been told our weeks will be bumped to allow those that had their spring and early summer weeks cancelled to take theirs. This is going to bump my week for a fall meet and leaf peeping cruise to mid or even late winter.

Dang covid19 is ruinin all our fun!
