Eastern Regional Meet
Members of the Dixie Chapter are pleased to host the 2019 Eastern Regional Meet in the Alpine village of Helen, Georgia. Located in the state’s northeast mountains, Helen is a regional tourist destination identified primarily by its Bavarian architecture and its annual month-long Oktoberfest celebration. It is also a shopper’s paradise with many unusual stores and numerous outdoor sites and activities.
In addition to the charm of Helen, arrangements have been made to tour several outstanding nearby attractions, including the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, primarily a shrine to NASCAR; and Dixie Chapter member George Bugg’ s fabulous 150 multi-marque collection of vintage motor vehicles.
Ladies will be attracted to Georgia’s “gold city,” Dahlonega, whose photogenic Public Square and shopping opportunities will be long remembered. As the site of the nation’s first major gold rush and home to a 19th century US Mint, a visit to Dahlonega is not complete without accessing the town’s Gold Museum. There, one may view a rare and complete collection of gold coins made at the mint almost two centuries ago. On the return trip to Helen, a must see stopover is the iconic Tomato House, an almost indescribable purveyor of gourmet foods and other items.
Additional planned activities include an ice cream social Friday evening and a Saturday night banquet.
A list of additional recommended attractions will be available in the registration materials.
