Concours 2020: A new kind of concours.
Many club members have voiced a strong desire to have a concours in October. Some other clubs in JCNA have had, or are planning to have a concours this year. We’ve put a plan together that should work in today’s environment.
We’re incorporating some new requirements.
First, effective social distancing throughout the event.
Second, food will be catered on-site and served utilizing all of the current, professional safety protocols.
Finally, to ensure cleanliness, restrooms and facilities are dedicated to the sole use of event participants.
With those requirements in mind, we are planning this year’s concours at our residence just off I-44 southwest of St. Louis. The 15 acre, rural setting is adequate for the kind of event we’re imagining. A large meadow off the main house serves as a show field. There is another large area for trailer parking. We’re having individual lunches catered. Each car entry will include two lunches. Additional lunches can be ordered if needed. We also have easily accessible, dedicated guest restroom facilities.
It’s more garden party than traditional concours but it still fits the bill. Emily and I, along with the JAGSL concours committee, hope you’ll consider coming and bringing a car out.
Due to the smaller scope of this event and the precautions we are taking to keep everyone safe, RSVP is required. Please RSVP by October 3rd.
