So now the Eastern Division Website is saying that all future York Dates are only Friday and Saturday.  However, their Facebook post said October 2020 would still be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  Anyone from Eastern Division know which one is correct....their Facebook post or their website?

I think your right because now their Facebook post says no change to the October meet but the 2020 is now gone. So it is just referencing this October and not 2020 that I swear it said yesterday.

Maybe if there had been enough of a time frame this October may have been just two days too. When I joined the TCA back in 1989 it was just two days. That was fine for me and it will be all right for me again. And if there is a possibilty it goes to once a year I can live with that too. I learned a long time ago nothing lasts forever. I enjoy it while it is here...................Paul 2

I started going the 1st 2 days and follow-up with 2 days of Gettysburg.  Never gets old.  This years investigation will be big and Little Round Top.  2 days of York usually drains my funds quite efficiently.

Very interesting. I suspect the Facebook post is correct and the October Meet will remain three days in the future, but who can be certain at this point. The ED will need to clarify its plans for the future, hopefully very soon.

I saw this.  I guess York has returned to its roots.  This definitely seals the fate of the Legacy meetings as they were.  Looks like travel Thursday, York Friday, travel Friday evening.  Doesn't matter.  I'll be there.

Hopefully, the leadership of the Eastern Division will clear this up soon. Should be easy enough for them to do.

Hopefully the current lower attendance will make Friday bearable for someone like me...mainly just looking at stuff in all the halls. My "shopping list" usually has zero items on it (but I still drop $100. average). I remember the "old days" when I avoided the Red Hall because you could barely make your way down the aisles. And I don't remember as many electric carts back then (most of us attending were much younger ).

You might say, "Just go on Saturday". Sorry, but I get in annoyed when I see dealers packing up half way through the 9-4 day.

" I think your right because now their Facebook post says no change to the October meet but the 2020 is now gone. So it is just referencing this October and not 2020 that I swear it said yesterday."

      It was like that yesterday. The schedule was revised sometime in the past 12 hours. October is still listed 17-19, everything after is listed as 2 day events.   

That is what I think also.  Yesterday morning the facebook post said October 2020 would be 3 days.  I think this October will be the last 3 day event.  I just wish someone from Eastern would answer an email or their facebook messages and let us know.  As I said in another post people plan this trip up to a year in advance with vacation time, airfare, and hotel accommodations.  October is coming up pretty quick so booking arrangements for 2020 isn't really that far off.

I wish they would update the York Meet Wrap Up page.  They haven't posted the attendance numbers there for the last 4 meets.

I recall driving around the York County countryside in a convertible prior to the Spring TCA Meet some years ago.  The aroma of fresh manure in the fields was invigorating

Was that on a Thursday or a Friday?

Okay, I just called the TCA business office and they had just found out yesterday. They have to update all their hand copies(paperwork) but the website is correct from what the nice lady on the other end said. So, as most have already speculated and or said, York will be Friday and Saturday going forward after this October's meet.

Yes and to add to this don’t forget the fresh aroma in the Fall TCA meets of fresh cabbage being stomped into sauerkraut.  Can’t get enough of that.

I have been talking for the better part of 15 years about getting back out to Gettysburg, hadn't actually thought about York and Gettysburg. I'll have to keep that in mind now.

Unless some Eastern Division official posts otherwise, I think it would be wise to assume that this October's event will be three days, as it has been in recent years, and that going forward ALL York Meet events (April and October) will be Friday-Saturday events (as they were some years ago).

If that is not correct, someone in the Eastern Div. officer ranks should post here or notify me directly so I can correct my post.

Allan - do you envision the OGR dinner staying on Thursday night or moving to Friday night?

-Greg

Not to answer for Allan but years ago when the meet was Friday and Saturday the dinner was always still on Thursday night.  I would expect it to stay the same.
