Mississippi Corvette Club has arranged for a shuttle to operate between the Courtyard by Marriott and the Jackson Convention Complex on Friday afternoon, August 2, 2019, between 3:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M. and on Saturday, August 3, 2019, between
7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Show participants can position their cars for display on the show floor of the Convention Complex, which is located at 105 East Pascagoula Street, Jackson, MS 39201, on Friday afternoon and then ride the shuttle, free of charge, to the Courtyard by Marriott and back to the Convention Complex on Saturday morning. The Convention Complex will be locked and a guard will be present from Friday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. until Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. Corvettes can also be positioned on the show floor on Saturday morning between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Entry to the show floor will be up the ramp and through roll top door at the back of the Convention Complex on Court Street. There will be a small number of trailer parking spots available at the rear of the Complex on a first come first serve basis.
Mississippi Corvette Club is hosting a “Dutch treat” dinner at the Courtyard by Marriott on Friday evening from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. The dinner will be held in the meeting room adjacent to registration area and can be ordered from the hotel grill menu. There will also be a full bar in the registration area. The Courtyard by Marriott is located directly across from the Cracker Barrel Restaurant on Riverwind Drive. We expect that the show judging will be concluded by around 3:00 p.m. Trophies and awards will be presented thereafter.
We had a very successful show last year and are looking forward to another great event in 2019. Show participants are invited to contact Tom Gerity by e-mail or by cell phone for additional information.
