The Colonial Region invites you to return with us in Fall of 2017 to the same site that hosted our blockbuster meets for the past three years. The Sunday meet format has proven to be popular and well attended! The DoubleTree by Hilton, located at 99 Erdman Way, Leominster, Mass, boasts the largest hall space that we've ever had, at 7,800 square feet. With 100 tables, this means more plates, friends, and camaraderie than we have had under one roof at prior meet sites. Having had 100+ attendees at these Leominster Colonial Region meets, you will see friends that you may not have seen in years, meet new ones, and possibly have access to the most plates short of the annual convention. Start planning your display now, and enter it in our long standing competition for which awards will be presented in the following categories: Passenger, Non-passenger, Small Display (ten plates or fewer), Junior Display (entrant must be under 21 years of age), and Best of Show. Our donation auctions are always lively, and there is something there for everyone. Hall opens at 8:00 AM, and trading will be active until well into the afternoon. Walk-ins: $7.00. Walk in with one table: $15.00. Additional tables: $20.00 each. Please watch our region's web page for additional updates as the date draws closer - we will host a dinner event at the Longhorn Restaurant in Leominster at 7:00 PM on Saturday night for those traveling in, as well as locals that would like to join us. Lodging is available at the DoubleTree at the negotiated rate of $119.00 plus tax - please call 978-534-9000, ask for reservations, and ask to make a reservation under the group code ALP. The DoubleTree offers an indoor pool, restaurant, and bar all within the same facility. Questions? Contact Alan Young at ovalzone@yahoo.com, or (781) 258-0363. Directions: Several major highways lead to Rte. 2 in Massachusetts. Heading west on Rte. 2, take exit 31 B and merge onto Rte. 12 north. Erdman Way is 1/8 mile ahead on right. From Rte. 2 east, take exit 31 and merge onto Rte. 12 north, Erdman way is 1/8 mile ahead on right. The DoubleTree is 1/4 mile ahead on Erdman Way, on the right. Plan now to visit New England and experience Massachusetts hospitality at its best. See you in November!

The ALPCA Colonial Region winter meet returns for our second meet at the VFW Post 511, 41 Veterans Drive, New Britain, CT 06050, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The Colonial Region invites you what promises to be another block buster event, as last year’s event at this location drew 91 members from 13 states. The VFW post has a 5,000 square foot hall with 65 tables, and the large adjacent parking area allows level, easy direct access into the hall. Plan now to attend and enjoy a day of lively trading well into the afternoon, with a donation auction that features quality material from near and far. Breakfast and lunch food will be available on-site, along with complimentary coffee and donuts. Member registration fees are $7 with no table, $15 with one table, and additional tables are $20 each. Directions: An easy drive from I-91: From I-91 north or south, take exit 22N onto Rte. 9 N. Then take exit 24 onto Rte. 571, and just shy of a half mile ahead, take the Rte. 71 exit. About 1/10 mile ahead is the exit for Veterans Drive. For additional information, contact local host Bob Senatro at (860) 874-3985 or bob335sen@gmail.com. See you in Connecticut!

This will be our third return visit to the site that welcomed between 70 and 80 members from 15 states and provinces, and boasted 65 tables at last two year’s spring meets. This location is right off I-91. Take exit 3 in Brattleboro, and go 1/8th of a mile to US Route 5. Go south for a quarter mile and take a right at the first traffic light onto Black Mountain Rd. Enter the third driveway on the left for the VFW hall. We will be on the ground floor, with no stairs or grade to overcome to enter the hall. There will be plenty of parking within easy access to the hall entrance, and lodging available at the five hotels located within a mile of the meet. This hall site is located within 20 miles of the Vermont/ Mass state line, and one mile of the New Hampshire/Vermont state line. Local host Conrad Hughson can be reached with any questions at chughson@svcable.net, or (802) 387-4498. Check this page for further details and updates. See you in Brattleboro!
