West Coast Reunion

American Lancia Club West Coast Reunion
Newberg, Oregon
July 13-16, 2023
We are pleased to host the ALC West Coast Reunion this year in the Willamette Valley, known for
producing some of the best Pinot Noir’s in the world. The event will offer scenic touring in wine- country and coast range combined with a gala dinner at the renowned Evergreen Air and Space Museum. The event concludes Sunday with optional participation in the Forrest Grove Concours on the beautiful forested Pacific University campus.
The event commences on Thursday afternoon, July 13 at the Newberg Holiday Inn, which is very
enthusiastic about hosting our event. A reception dinner starting at 5PM will be held at the Chehalem Valley Brew Pub, near the hotel.
Friday features a tour of the wine country including small towns with excellent bakeries for a mid-morning break. Lunch will be available for purchase along the way. After a full day of driving, we will arrive at the Evergreen Air and Space Museum. In addition to housing numerous air and spacecraft the Air Museum is famous for being the home of Howard Hughe’s Spruce Goose, the world’s largest propeller driven aircraft. For those interested in touring the Air Museum a special group rate of $14 person will be available. Thanks to sponsorship from Vintage Underground, a well-established restoration shop in Eugene, Oregon, we will have private use of the impressive Space Museum starting at 5PM for the event gala dinner and presentations by guest speakers. An open bar will be available.
On Saturday we will have a morning tour to a local winery for an awards ceremony, where lunch will be provided. The afternoon is open to allow people to enjoy the local area and prepare their cars for the optional Forrest Grove Concours the next day. Also available is a side trip to visit a local car collection.
In late afternoon a car wash and concours preparation clinic will be offered near the hotel by Neil
d’Autremont of Griot’s Garage, with beverages provided by Cascade Investment Advisors. Food will be available for purchase, or you are free to visit one of our many local restaurants.
For those who have signed up to show their cars at the Forrest Grove Concours, a caravan will depart from the Holiday Inn early in the morning. Those who are not showing cars can sleep in and leave later.
We have reserved 25 rooms at the Holliday Inn for Thursday through Sunday nights. You have the
