According to a post on the AACA's Facebook page on September 25th there will be change of dates and venues for an AACA Fall Car Show. 

Please read the posted statement from the AACA:

There is an old saying about the “best laid plans…” and we had a great plan for the Hershey car show this year. We worked with all parties and had an agreement on a COVID-19 solution for our show. We ordered trophies and the Hershey Region ordered judges hats and dash plaques. We were excited to work together with the Region to make this a great show. Unfortunately, in the last few days we were given a new set of regulations to follow which would have drastically affected the quality of the event in a negative way. As much as we wanted to have the show at the traditional location and be able to show-off the outside of the new AACA headquarters we must cancel the traditional Eastern Division Fall Meet car show on October 9-10. We owe it to you to get this right and apologize to all who now must make changes to your schedule, cancel rooms, and most importantly miss being in Chocolate Town, USA. We are however committed to providing our members with a safe, enjoyable, and sensible event this fall.

We have proven that in a short time and with your cooperation we can pull off a show in another location. Our 2020 Grand Nationals in Gettysburg was a huge hit and done safely with the complete cooperation of our members. As such, we are proud to announce we will host a Special Fall Nationals on November 6-7 at the same Wyndham Hotel complex in Gettysburg, PA. Everything is onsite, trailer parking, host hotel along with a Marriott Courtyard next door and judging school. Gettysburg is a great place to find activities in a historic location that offers so much to see. The potential for cancelation is extremely remote. We have a well thought out and proven plan. Yes, masks and temperature taking just as we had planned for Hershey will be a requirement.

Your previous checks will be shredded so please do not worry about them being cashed. We will be sending a registration for Gettysburg. Please fill it out and send it in right away. The Host Hotel is the Wyndham 717-339-0020 and the Marriott Courtyard next door is 717-334-5600. There is a restaurant on the grounds as well. We even have overflow trailer parking if needed directly across the street. Average weather at that time of the year is typical fall. It will be a great show!

Judges, you will get a judge’s hat from Hershey as a bonus so please join us. We need you!

With only three shows this year it may be a great chance for your show car to win a national award as well. So please join us, it WILL be a great event!!
