Mid-Week Discount

I am pleased to announce that we have received a MID-Week Discount from the Boomtown Hotel in Reno. Registrations must be made as members of the ROA and use our
group code (SROA17). A rate of $54.99 will apply on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, a reduction from the $74.99, which will be applied other days. These rates will be
applied to those who have already registered.

We return to the west for 2017 and have selected a host hotel, approximately nine miles outside of Reno. The hotel is convenient to downtown Reno, without the congestion and halfway between the mining town of Virginia City and beautiful Lake Tahoe. A favorite vacation location for members who live in the western states, as well as close to a major airport for those who fly from the east.

We offer a Tuesday busride up to Virginia City for those who prefer to rest their car for the day. Whatever day you choose, we highly recommend a drive up to Lake Tahoe. It is about 35 minutes away and worth the time. In nearby Reno, visit the highly rated Harrah Collection at the National Auto Museum. Everyone wearing an ROA meet badge will get the reduced group rate.

As is the ROA custom, we will have a large hospitality/ event room open every day with refreshments and activities. Check out our "Schedule of Events" (right) for times. On Thursday, our car show with peer judging will be on the property of our host hotel from 9 am–2 pm, followed by our awards banquet in the evening.
