The ISWC will be holding their annual convention @ Jiminy Peak In Hancock Mass on June 19-23.

The actual show is Saturday June 23 from noon to 4:00 PM.

We have several things planned including a trip to a private car collection with 100 cars, a trip to the Saratoga Auto Museum, a tour of Hemmings Motor News and attend their Cruise-In that night.

More info to follow as it happens. Please visit our website (iswc.us) for more info on the ISWC. (Our webmaster has been quite ill, so please be patient with us if it has not been recently updated).

Yes, Jiminy Peak is normally quite expensive, but they are giving us a fantastic rate of $99.00 per night for a fully equipped timeshare style suite. So it not just a hotel room!

The ISWC has about 200 members as we are a very young club. When I hosted the ISWC Show in Sturbridge in 2008, we had almost 75 cars between cars on the field and spectator wagons.

We had 50+ cars on the field last year in Pittsburgh.

FYI, the ISWC only recognizes wagons based on cars. They do not recognize mini vans, SUV's or trucks. We do recognize Depot Hacks.

That's a cute plan for the crowd who drinks Perrier with their pinky out, but lots of people don't require a fully equipped timeshare style anything. Have you done anything for the men who just need shelter after tailgating till 4am?

We are not a snooty bunch. It is very family oriented.

There are not a lot of options in that area and we since we are a young, small club, we try to move to an area that we have never been to before and rely only on members who can volunteer their time to put these events together. Would you like to offer any assistance, because we can use it!

We did not look for a facilty of this type, it was just what we got for a great price. We do have members who camp at a local facilities, but most attenders use the host hotel. When we were in Strubridge, we were at the Public House Motor Lodge, which is basically an old school roadside style rooms and we paid $84.00 per night.

Are you interested in attending? What kind of facility would you be happy with.

I'm just giving you a hard time and the odds of my attendance is miniscule regardless of what kinds of deals you've worked out.

I'm in MI, and broke, and am trying to start on a build that needs to be drivable by Woodward. I DO love seeing some sort of formal organization being developed for the wagon kook community though, so kudos to you and your crew for that.

WOW. We do live in a small world. I was just talking to my youngest son about how we used to go to Jiminy. I am freinds with the gentleman who actually built the Saratoga Museum, we went to school together. And my Mother actually used to work there.

Saratoga is pretty cool the Park next to the museum is a neat place with the springs they have. Those who go need to check those out, and you can also try the Vichy Water Spring (Must have a acquired taste for it) The Springs water bottling plant is located on the other side of RT 29 across from the museum. The Horse Flat Track is also nearby. A ride around the Saratoga Lake is pretty neat. Oh and for you Race Fans Albany Saratoga / Malta Speedway is about 15 minutes away as well

As for the trip to Hemmings, are you guys planning on heading towards vermont, and visit the Hemming Gas Station as well? There are some spectacular views going through the mountains up there (well there was before the flooding) haven't been up there in a few years

This is what we have so far: We have several things planned including a trip to a private car collection with 100 cars, a trip to the Saratoga Auto Museum, a tour of Hemmings Motor News and attend their Cruise-In that night.

We usually also go go-carting on one of the nights and at some point, we have our annual meeting.

I will post the full itinerary as soon as it is finalized.

You must be an ISWC member and be registered for the event to get the Show rate.

It sounds like a lot of fun. It seems much more formal, the club part anyway, then our bunch (the lanyards and badges in your pictures give that away). And by the pictures I would guess there is a few more $$ involved in most (not all) of your cars. One of the best parts about our club is we , restore, use, modify, abuse, cut the tops off, flame engine covers (hint hint) etc. to our cars to make them part of us not the other way around. To be honest, the wagons are just an excuse for us to hang. If I did not have wagon and showed up in an El Camino or S-10 pickup I would still feel right at home with these guys.

On a side note looking at the numbers our WF series has not done to bad. The fact that we are pretty much exclusive to GM B-bodies (91-96) I am pretty pleased that we had 60+ cars at the 2010 (or was it 2009) Wagon Fest. Kudo's to Fred!! If we get a good crew to attend one of these we might really add to their numbers.

To many things pulling at my vacation time so I would not likely attend. Is there a membership fee? Fees for the shows? Would our group get a discount on these fee's?

Much appreciation for keeping us in the loop on your upcoming events. If any/all of you attend shows like Hershey or Carlisle let me know I am somewhat local (right between) these two show platforms.

Maybe I will just run up there for the day since it's only 4 hours from me. and enjoy the show with the rest of the wagon guys. Then head back later that evening.

It is about 6 for me. Unless I have another excuse to travel that way, it would not work.

Everyone has to pay a reg fee to be on the show field and be judged and you must be an ISWC member, but if you just want to park on the show field, the Club charges 10 bucks to "display only".

Right now we have no provision for a group discount as no one has very requested it. We barely break even at these events.

We are not a real formal bunch, don't let the name tags fool you! The name tags are just so everyone knows your name.

Some of our cars are restored, some are nice originals and some are not so nice. Our goal is just Station Wagons, regardless of their condition.

Pretty much the goal here too. Oh and to drink beer in parking lots late into the night.

To answer your earlier question, I'm centered in Delray Beach, FL about an hour north of Miami.
I made it to the Lake Seneca region of NY for our Wagonfest in 2010, but took 9 days out to do it, Lot's of driving!

Four hours is a milk run for me, I drive that far for good surf on a semi regular basis. Only problem is it's 5 hours to the state line from my house.... Shocked

I have a correction to make in our schedule. Hemmings has finalized their cruise-ins and it does NOT fall on the day that we will be there!!! It will be the week before and the week after!! So we will still tour Hemmings and after that, we will cruise around to the covered bridges in the area.

I tried!!!

Bewber, Clarksburg State Forest is about a half hour from the show. MA state parks are great for camping. I'm actually looking at staying there myself since I haven't been camping in awhile. There are also a few private campgrounds up there. Never been to them thou.

So if someone is in the area and they just showed up what would it cost again? $10 to just be part of it,... Am I right?
