The date for the 2019 Caravan is Aug. 28-31, 2019. This marks the 25th Anniversary of the Museum, Registration for the event at the Museum is now open and can be accessed on the NCM website. If registering, be sure to register each person, not just your car. Each person will have to select which caravan they are planning to travel with, or select NO CARAVAN if not planning on traveling with one. For this event there will be only one NCM registration fee. As an upgrade for 2019, credentials will be distributed before you arrive in Bowling Green by the Caravan Captains, so it is important that you choose which Cara-van Captain you will be traveling with. 

If you are planning on traveling with the Atlantic Corvette Caravan (new name for the New Jersey Caravan, which is the one we traveled with last Caravan) you can reach out to John & Mary Nist, the Captains, at atlanticcaptains2019@gmail.com. 

Note: Most members of CCWP that are planning on participating will be joining the Michigan Caravan led by Larry Courtney. Make sure you register with the Museum under the Michigan Caravan so Larry will have all of our information when we meet up with him in Indiana. This way you won’t have to worry about picking up your credentials at the Museum.
