Annual North-South Meet
October 11 - October 13
Please join us in Salinas on October 11-13, 2019 for the 54th annual gathering of the California Regions.
It is not required that you drive your classic Cadillac or LaSalle to this event.
Salinas is the birthplace of Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author John Steinbeck and the setting for many of his novels. A statue of the man who wrote such classics as “The Grapes of Wrath” and “East of Eden” stands on the lawn of the Steinbeck Library. Steinbeck is buried in Garden of Memories Memorial Park, also in Salinas. The vast quantities and varieties of vegetables and fruits in the Salinas Valley are responsible for the nickname “Salad Bowl of the World.”
Please make your hotel reservations at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Salinas and return your registration form no later than September 13, 2019. If you wish to pay your registration fee and banquet cost with a credit card, go to the event host’s website at www.clcsocal.com.
