Lightbulb Marauderville 2018

Good time to start thinking about where Marauderville could be held next year.

The 'Powers that be" generally like to have submissions in by the first quarter of the year, so they can decide on where if there are multiple entries.

Unfortunately there weren't any submissions for 2017, so we went Maraudervilleless. Let's try and avoid that for 2018.

Any part of the country is fair game for a meet up.

How about the Philly area?
You can visit Longwood Gardens (30 miles for downtown Philly). The Battleship New Jersey (across the river in Camden), the Franklyn Institute, and then there are the Cheese steak sandwiches.....

X2 Philly area or Northeast Maryland...Cecil County dragstrip, lots of Steamed blue crab restaurants, Aberdeen Proving grounds and the chesapeake bay are minutes away...

Hagley museum in nearby DE is cool, it is the original DuPont gunpowder works from the 1700's, has a working machine shop powdered by watermills and overhead belts, they do demonstrations and recently had about 1000 cars there at a car show.. don't underestimate Longwood either, that is 1100 acres very well maintained was owned by one of the DuPonts still can visit his mansion they have fountain/light shows and musical concerts and fireworks every single weekend in the summer..and the Fire museum about an hour south in Towson has all kinds of old firetrucks and apparatus. Lancaster county PA is the heart of Amish country about 45 mins north...

I'm going to suggest a middle of the country area so our left and right coasters neither will have to drive across the entire country to attend. Let's just throw out Branson MO. Panther Nationals have been there in the past with good results.




Also i live near Branson.

Start the planning, pick a team, coordinate a host hotel, develop an itinerary covering 3-4 days, and submit a proposal. I look forward to seeing the results.

Typically what months do you shoot for and does it have to be around car shows or is that just a plus and perk of all the cars got together just thinking out loud

Typically they have been in Sept, Oct, but if the peeps have enough notice it can be anytime. Just don't want to conflict with Louisville in April. Marauderville has been a good venue to show off the area the organizer's live in or near. In the past over the three days it has included a car show, some sort of history venue, factory tours, etc. It can be whatever the organizers want it to be.
Usually arrive on the Wed evening then do stuff Thurs, Fri, Sat, and go home Sunday. Depending on what the venues are there has been 1 or 2 things each day.
I think there is a thread somewhere that describes the generalities and specifics of what is expected from the organizers. A great hotel is premium as we spend quite a bit of time smoozing in the parking lot or the hotels lobby.
We found when planning MV9 getting in touch with the local Chamber of Commerce was a great place to start as they have relationships with the local hotels and attractions.

You are all out of your mind thinking about bringing nearly 50 Marauder’s to Philadelphia. I’m a little over a hour away and wouldn’t think of parking my car in Philadelphia. Look at the Marauder’s for sale on eBay and craigslist, that’s the land where marauders go to die or get stolen and stripped. Traffic is chaos as well, I overwhelmingly pass on the Philly idea.

I hate to ruin everybody's Philly parade, but it's never gonna happen. It's one of most inaccessible cities in the country. It's like going to New York City and we're never going to have a Marauderville there. The Schuykill Expressway is a disaster to get into the city and 95 normally just as bad.

My goal is to have one a little farther north in Bethlehem. I wanted to do it last year, but was told it was too late to proceed. I'm gonna try to get it together this year.

How about Chicago. Middle of the country for everybody to have a chance, one of the most marauder populated areas, fantastic food, accessible, multiple car museums and tourist attractions. Or as 2 posts said above, Springfield.
