The 2022 PAC National Meet will be my first time attending a national PAC meeting. I have a few questions:
1) I see that the hotel room rate includes parking for one vehicle. I am assuming that we will be able to park our Packards ourselves in the hotel garage and not valet them?
2) Is the bus tour to the National Mall on July 7th, a narrated tour, or just a ride from the hotel to the National Mall and back?
3) For show judging, can a car be judged in more than one class? My car fits in classes 3A, 12A, and potentially 14.
4) For class 14, would a car owned by a movie producer qualify as an important historical figure?

Regarding your questions on the hotel and the bus tour you should contact the meet chairman, Paul Delaney at (703) 768-0367.
On the question about judging, you should contact the chief judge, David Robinson at (802) 869-2891.
Looking forward to seeing you, and your Packard, at the upcoming PAC National Meet.

This is the official site of The Packard Club and the Forum Event topic specific for the 2022 National Meet. The key people in charge of this meet which is only days away should be on this site answering questions. I have a lot of questions because my check was cashed, but here in the final days before the meet I have no packet, registration confirmation, tickets to events etc. Do I just show up on Sunday at Mt Vernon??????? Communicate, PLEASE!

Joe, I passed your query on to Craig Handley, PAC President, and am posting his response here:

To Joe Santana

Joe I’m sorry that you haven’t had a response until now. Those of us who are planning the meet are working day and night to take care of the million details involved. You will receive a registration packet at the hotel. It will contain a confirmation of your registration and payment, all of your event tickets, a raffle ticket for the banquet, a meet book with maps and directions for each day’s activities and a few gifts. Registration for the meet will begin Monday at 9:00 am on the second floor in the swap meet area. If you wish to go to Mt Vernon, the map for the trip is in the meet book and I will try to have some at the front desk when you check in with the hotel, or you can call my cell at 248-224-3420 and I’ll get you a book.

Thanks for the info, Craig. I appreciate the myriad of details to pull off a National Meet. At Hershey, I did volunteer to help.
My problem is I live here. I'm not staying at the hotel. So all I needed to know was what time do I go to the hotel on Sunday to tour to Mt Vernon and pick up my packet? Thanks much.

Joe, you might be better off by contacting Craig by email. His address is published in each issue of both The Packard Cormorant and the Cormorant News Bulletin.

I talked to some folks in the hotel lobby and the Sunday Mt Vernon drive is an on your own drive. As a note, Mt Vernon is only open until 5pm on Sunday so I would recommend going in the morning and then coming back to the hotel for registration. According to the Mt Vernon website, it can take you up to 3 hrs to see everything.
