2017 Spring Meet: The Florida Packard Club Spring Meet in Leesburg on April 1st was a resounding success. Hosted by Ed and Kim Miller, the meet included a show and a short driving tour of the surrounding area. In addition to members' Packards, a non-member brought a beautiful Packard Twelve and joined the club. If you are a Florida Packard Club member, watch for a complete report with photographs, in the next issue of The Caribbean Courier. If you aren't a member, please join today. Remember, you don't have to own a Packard to join, nor do you have to live in Florida. You only have to have an interest in Packards.
2017 Devereaux-Kaiser Meet: This long-running event took place on Sunday, January 29th in Sarasota. There have been 2000 vehicles at the event in the past. Due to heavy rain the night before and sprinkles on show day, there are estimated to have been under 200 cars this year. Hopefully the weather will be better next year so that the turnout will be back up again.
Three of the attending cars were Packards: Norm Madsen's 1922 Single Six Sport Model,
Bruce Blevins' 1933 Detrich-designed Victoria and Jim VanOstran's 1937 1502 Touring Sedan.
The next Fall Florida Packard Club Meet will take place on the 3rd Sunday in November, 2017.
