As many of you know, Covid-19 has led to significant numbers of event cancellations all across the country. During the past few months, I have been in close contact with Jim Johnson, director of Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford. We have had to take things a day at a time, hoping that venues would be allowed to open and activities would return to normal.
Unfortunately, Michigan has been particularly slow in recovering. At this time, The Henry Ford does not have a solid date for reopening. If and when they do reopen, any scheduled events would have to be drastically altered in scope and capacity.
Because of this, the 2020 Annual Meet to be held at Greenfield Village on September 9-13, will be cancelled. It deeply saddens the Michigan Wheelmen to make this announcement, as it would have been our 50th Anniversary Old Car Festival Wheelmen Meet. We were excited about showcasing The Henry Ford and all of its amenities, but we were also greatly looking forward to spending time with our Wheelmen family after this lengthy period of isolation. We will plan to reschedule a national meet at this location in the future.
For those of you that have already booked your hotel rooms, when you call to cancel your room please let the hotel know that the National Meet was cancelled this year due to Covid-19.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-377-6953.
