Cars scheduled to attend the convention are: Burrard, Caritas, City of Spokane, Pointe St. Charles, Yosemite Falls, Pacific Sands, Scottish Thistle, Metis, Birch Grove, Vista Dome, Hollywood Beach, J. Pinckney Henderson, Northern Dreams, Northern Sky, Georgia 300, Chapel Hill, Vista Canyon, Diablo Canyon, Jane Marie, and Promontory Point.
In Omaha the cars will be parked at the Durham Western Heritage Museum (located in the former Union Pacific Station). The museum is located about ten blocks from the Omaha Magnolia Hotel where convention meetings and activities will take place. Shuttle bus service will be provided to get convention attendees back and forth between the two locations. The Magnolia is the former Sheraton and has been newly renovated. The Car Parties will be held on Thursday and Friday evenings with the 30th anniversary banquet closing the convention Saturday night in the museum. There will be music and dancing for all to enjoy. Omaha also boasts of the best steaks in the nation. Kenefick Park at Lauritzen Gardens is named after former UP Chairman and CED John C. Kennefick and displays Centennial 6900, the largest and most powerful diesel-electric locomotive ever built, and Big Boy No. 4023, the world’s largest steam engine. The historic Old Market is located about halfway between the hotel and the museum. There’s also the Henry Doorly Zoo and the Strategic Air and Space Museum.
Further activities are still in the planning stages but Omaha looks like it will be another successful event for AAPRCO. As its our 30th birthday, we hope you’ll make plans to join the celebration!
