I thought it was East -> West -> East -> West? That's straight up north central US.
Typically true, but these days it is more along the lines of where there are volunteers to plan the events. Additionally, we agreed to re-plan Rapid City when it was cancelled for 2020. 2023 likely to be California with 2024 Virginia.

Sure wish one of the events could be held in the Lone Star state (Texas).

Our website is up. Event registration will begin October 1, 2021 so there is no page for that right now. The hotel reservation page will be updated shortly with the link for online reservations below. You may call the hotel to reserve a room if you wish at the phone number provided on the website. You may stay three days prior to and after the event at the event rate, but for those changes you must call the hotel.

You will find information for the event now at nassam2022.com.

Hotel Reservations - Once the page loads change your dates and you should get several options. Rapid City Hotels | Best Western Ramkota Hotel | Hotels in Rapid City SD

Hello Friends:

Please note that you may now register for NASSAM 2022! This is the same process as was used for the previously postponed NASSAM 2020 which worked well. That said, please read and follow the directions carefully. :)

Event Registration:

Run Sign-Up

And please note, we'll need some volunteers to lead runs and help in the registration room, if you are available please email me at [email protected]. Thanks!

Hey there folks, well we have our first ten cars signed up for 2022 in Rapid City. Sorry, but there is no prize for that. Registration information is at the links below.

Two things...first, if you'd like to volunteer in the registration room or more importantly as a run captain please email us at [email protected]...second, your receipt from a credit card or PayPal may say NASSAM 2020, please ignore the "2020", there seem to be a few things we just couldn't get the system to change. No wait, three things...the even t-shirts shown on the website are the 2020 design. The 2022 design is the same but with "15th Annual" updated to "17th Annual" and the year will be 2022. We just haven't yet had the opportunity to have samples of the new shirts made yet. Here are the links...

Well, lots going on right now. We have 18 cars signed up with 29 people coming. Runs are also starting to fill up.
Please make sure to register sooner than later. Also, please register for the event prior to requesting spots on the runs. This is a sort of first come, first served kinda thing.

Lastly, don't forget to make hotel reservations. You do not have to stay at the Best Western, a couple of folks will likely be camping and a couple at other local hotels. If you are at the BW with us, remember that if you want to come early or stay late you'll get the room rate, but you must make those reservations by calling the hotel.

Good Morning: Well we have a couple more registrations, up to 27. Hey, someone asked about wildlife along the Custer State Park Run...as I explained we have seen a couple of bison, but you will want to watch out for other friendly creatures along the way. If you want to see herds of bison, you'll want to go on the Custer State Park Scenic drive which is NOT one of our runs, but worth the tour. It is a loop off of our Custer State Park Run, but added too much time for a group of 15 cars.

I won't be able to reserve until closer to the event.
When will reservations be closed?

Let me give you a somewhat complicated answer...

1. If you wish to order t-shirts, posters and/or patches as a part of your registration we need to know by April 1, 2022.
2. We have to turn unused rooms back to the hotel on May 12, 2022.
3. We have to provide final numbers for the social events (Meet and Greet, Ice Cream Social and Banquet) on June 1, 2022.

So please do us a favor and try to get registered by March 1, 2022...there is some planning on our part besides all of the above. :)

Just an update for everyone, we're up to 60 cars and about 100 folks who will be in attendance. If you have made a hotel reservation without registering for the event, we hope to see you and please register at your earliest convenience. The list of "Who's Going?" is here: Who's Going? — NASSAM 2022. Also, the runs are beginning to fill up so please make sure you get registered for runs as well.

Just an FYI for everyone. One thing that may come to be is an autocross event. No promises, but keep your fingers crossed. Salvador Blumenkron is trying to get this together...for either the weekend before or after...Sal? Anyway, keep in mind that you may wish to change some of your plans if you are an autocross person AND we can get it setup.

Good Morning: We're at 64 cars and 107 people. Please make sure you get to the runs page on the website and get signed up if you'd like to venture out with other folks to some of the sights. I'd like to thank the guys who have signed up as run captains. It takes volunteers like these folks to have nationals each year. I'll be sure to introduce all of them in June.

Hello folks: We who are planning Rapid City in 2022 had hoped to announce 2023 in June, but since this has come up over on the Solstice Forum...well...

The Country Inn, Beckley, WV has let us know that we can have the entire hotel (156 rooms) for the week of June 19-24, 2023. As for 2024, some of us are considering options and have two or three ideas. Due to conflicts of various types, the folks who might have planned and hosted an event in California are not able to go forward. So, Rapid City in 2022 and Beckley in 2023. And we'll see what develops for 2024.

In the meantime, back to Rapid City, we now have 65 cars and over 100 people with the promise of at least ten more cars. We hope to see some of you in June!

Best regards,

Rick
