National Boards > Road Enthusiasts Meetings

2022 Philadelphia, PA National Road Meet (August 20-21, 2022)

(1/30) > >>

roadwaywiz95:
For the first time since 2014, the “National Meet” format is returning with this event centered around The City of Brotherly Love, to be hosted by yours truly on Saturday/Sunday August 20-21, 2022. Whether you pass through this area on a regular basis or you’ve never been here before, this city has an impressive amount to see & experience and it’s certainly worth the trip out this way to hang out with your favorite fellow road enthusiasts & content creators and make a mini-vacation out of it all if you choose! As has been the case with past National Meets, you will have the choice of attending either both or one of the two days of tours/gatherings but no matter what you decide, I hope you enjoy your visit and have a memorable experience.

froggie:
There were other meets being considered in late August.  Did you consult with them before you made your announcement?


That said, there has been precedent for having meets in more than one region on the same weekend or a week apart.

hbelkins:
I think the "national meet" term has become a more grandiose way to hype a multi-day meet.

What was the 2014 "national meet?" The only one I can remember being billed as such was one in the Pittsburgh area back around 2007.

TheHighwayMan394:
The 2015 UP meet was billed as a national meet, if I recall.
