Hotel assignments will be made in January. Proposed weekend highlights include an address by President Carol Folt '78a, tours of the new Black Family Visual Arts Center, a club scholars' luncheon, informative breakout sessions, and a celebratory banquet on Saturday evening.

If you are interested in attending CAGOW, please contact your club president by November 16. Warm regards, Suzanne Young ’77 P’10 Senior Associate Director, Regional Affairs P.S.

Blackhawk’s 100,000 square foot multi-level glass and granite architectural masterpiece showcases an ever-changing exhibition of over 120 of the world's greatest automobiles dating from the 1890's. The museum fulfills a two-fold agenda: to present automobiles to the true aficionados, and also, to instill an understanding of the craftsmanship, the design and historical significance of the vehicles. By comparing and contrasting the many different styles of automobiles, their individual merits can more readily be seen and deeper appreciation for the construction and design of each vehicle can be experienced.
