Latest Plymouth 2021 info

Post by Kurt Lesser » Fri Oct 30, 2020 8:38 am

The latest confirmed dates for the April 2021 Plymouth meet are April 28th (Wed) thru May 1st (Sat). All reservations will again be done thru JoAnn Lesser and an application sheet will be published in an upcoming Newsletter.

If you had a reservation for the April 2020 meet your name will automatically be transferred to the 2021 schedule. We've received our new 49er site allocations and they've tried to do a better job of grouping MVCC members together. If for some reason the space you were assigned in 2020 isn't on the new allocation list JoAnn will do her best to make sure you will be relocated to an equivalent sized site. Beginning in January we'll be contacting you with your site number and at that time you can contact the 49er to make your payment. We'll also notify the 49er of any site changes we make so they'll be expecting your call, please don't call the resort and ask them to move you.

A change for this year for the 49er Resort is the MVCC will only be doing the reservations and not collecting any money for them. That will be done by the 49er folks. All sites in the Fairgrounds will remain the same and the MVCC will still be collecting all payments for the Fairgrounds sites.

Any additional information will be in the MVCCNews as it becomes available.

The latest newsletter says the Plymouth meet is April 14-19th, but your post says April 28th through May 1st. Which date is correct?

The dates in the Newsletter are incorrect, they were changed after our meeting with the 49er resort in late October. The latest dates are the ones posted here, April 28 thru May 2nd, 2021.

If you attended the April meet in 2019 or were registered for a space at the April 2020 you don't need to do anything. We are working on moving everything over to the April 2021 dates and will notify you after January 1st when it's OK to contact the 49er and make your space payment. If you were in the fairgrounds dry camp area you will still be making your space payment directly to the MVCC, again after January 1st.

If you are a new member and/or planning on coming for the first time there will be a registration application in the next MVCC Newsletter and it will be available for download from the MVCC website at www.mvccnews.net.

Plymouth info update 1/4/21

Post by Kurt Lesser » Mon Jan 04, 2021 9:34 am

Addendum 1/3/21: While we are anticipating the event will happen at this point we are asking everyone wishing to attend to fill in an application and sent it in. The address is on the application. We think it would be better to hold off on any payments until the March'21 time frame when we will have a better idea whether or not the event will happen. This way there isn't money out there that would need to be refunded should the state cancell it.

The latest confirmed dates for the April 2021 Plymouth meet are April 28th (Wed) thru May 1st (Sat). All reservations will again be done thru JoAnn Lesser and an application sheet will be published in an upcoming Newsletter.

Any word on the Insurance Dilemma? Does the MVCC have insurance?

Dave, The MVCC has always maintained sufficient insurance to cover their meets and we are further backed by the MVPA since these are sanctioned events. If you need specifics contact our club president Chris Thomas. The clubs insurance coverage isn't a topic for public forums.

Yes, the MVCC has had a stand alone policy for sometime in addition to the MVPA coverage.
I hope to see everyone in April.

If you are new to these big Spring meets, it is way more than a campout. It is a MV gathering and swap meet with the public invited. There is some basic event info on a post on the Events forum here:

There are details now up on the event calendar on www.MVCCNews.net. Click on the event name. The interactive 49er campground map is not up to date but should be by April 1. You'll be able to see which participant has what campsite. Both campgrounds.

Blast from the past - the Jeep Showcase in April 2019, the inaugural event at this venue. 65 jeeps and there were around 10 in the campgrounds that didn't make the display. Probably the owners were buying and selling!

Plenty big for several graves.

Jo-Ann is the best person to reply. It might vary a little according to what row you are thinking about. You can see the layout on www.mvccnews.net in the event calendar listing. Click on the interactive map and go to the fairgrounds map. FYI the names on sites may not be up to date yet.
