Amelia Primer:
Win a Denise McCluggage Picture!

February 27, 2014 Comments (0)

Here are a few bullet points for those among you who will be at Amelia next weekend.

  • Amelia Island is in Northern Florida very near the Georgia border. It can be cool there in March. Bring warm clothing.
  • Please remember that Bike Week begins March 7, just down the road, at Daytona. Bikes and trailers will be all over the highways that weekend.
  • View the Events Schedule here.
  • By now you have purchased your tickets. Don’t forget the seminars. They separate Amelia from every other similar event.
  • Most of the official (read sanctioned) events are either held at or emanate from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Amelia Island.
  • The Gooding & Co. Auction will be held at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation.
  • Fernandina Beach is the nearest town and it is a nice space with excellent restaurants and bars.
  • Check out the Passport Transport Eight Flags Road Tour to Fernandina Beach’s main street. It is a great opportunity to see and photograph the rare cars on the street.
  • Sunday morning: you cannot get on the field until 9:30AM and the line will start forming way before that. By 10:00AM everyone will be on the field and you will be able to walk right in.
  • The Ritz is great and there are a number of restaurants on the property. There simply aren’t enough on Sunday from 11:30AM to 2:30PM. Carry water and an energy bar with you. Then you can eat at your convenience.
  • If you want to take pictures you will need to be patient. Very patient.
  • Have a great time!
  • Send us your three favorite pictures and we will choose the one we like best and send the winner a signed Denise McCluggage picture of a Ferrari Transport taken in 1958.
