Nothing Changes for the Friday MOGSouth Noggin and Saturday Cars and Coffee
[The Amelia Island Concours organizers have told us they are changing the Concours d’Elegance to Saturday. This is the same thing as last year. Only the Concours (previously scheduled for Sunday 11 March) is changing. All the MOGSouth activities remain unchanged. See you there! Mark]
[Per the Organizers] THE AMELIA ISLAND CONCOURS d’ELEGANCE MOVES TO SATURDAY MARCH 10 DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER.
“Amelia Island, FL – Even in the best-case scenario, the forecast for Sunday’s scheduled Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance includes rain and lots of it. With a strong chance of heavy precipitation forecast for Sunday and a sunshine-filled Saturday in the mix, The Amelia Concours team has moved Sunday’s award-winning Concours to Saturday. The Concours show will now coincide with Saturday’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours presented by Heacock Classic Insurance. “
Friday, March 9, 5PM MOGSouth Noggin at Sliders Seaside Grill. The Friday Night Noggin will start around 5PM at Sliders Seaside Grill (1998 South Fletcher Ave., Amelia Island – Fernandina Beach, FL). This is unchanged from prior communications.
The Saturday, March 10, Cars and Coffee will start early Saturday Morning. MOGSouth will rendezvous as a group at 7:30AM (and leave soon there after) at the Surf Restaurant parking lot (3199 S Fletcher Ave, Fernandina Beach, FL) and convoy to the Cars and Coffee location (Golf holes 1, 10 and 18th holes). This is unchanged from prior communications.
[For those that attended last year, you will remember we left the Surf Restaurant a little after 0800 and just barely made it on the show field. In fact, we were parked just where we came onto the field, down the middle of the rest of the cars. Not really a bad location, but we were basically the last ones on the field. This was for a 0900 Cars and Coffee Start as well. Same as this year. Mark]
If you have a magenta MotorXpo decal: 1) follow the instructions you were given and exit the same way you came in. 2)MotorXpo entrants if you leave before the show please be mindful of the foot traffic. [I believe all Morgans are at the MotorXpo. At least all folks that have contacted me have indicated that they have a magenta decal. If you have a Morgan that has been accepted and have received a green decal, please let me know. Thanks, Mark.]
Gates will close at 1:30pm, you are free to leave or stay until the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance has ended. [What we are being told is that you must leave by 1:30PM or stay until the end of the Concours. Mark]
