2022 MARC National Meet
June 5 – 10, 2022
UPDATE – Host Hotel Reservation Status 12/21/2021
The 2022 National Meet Host Committee is preparing a Meet that will be like no other in recent times! Virtually every activity, including all car and fashion judging and showing, trailer parking, ice cream social, all seminars, etc. are held in one location, adjacent to the Host Hotel. Like in many years before, the host hotel will not accommodate everyone who wishes to attend, so several other hotel choices within a reasonable drive in the beautiful Amish countryside have been arranged. The MARC Board is exceedingly grateful to the North Penn Model ‘A’ Club for stepping up to host this Meet, and with relatively little time to prepare!
Many of you reserved rooms at the Host Hotel as instructed starting July 1st. The hotel system then mistakenly booked more rooms than available. Subsequently, some of your rooms were incorrectly cancelled by the hotel. In order to rectify this situation as fairly as possible, the following procedure is being implemented…
- Reservations that were made prior to July 1st will be voided. The hotel will contact you, and if you wish, they will assist in moving your reservation to another approved hotel.
- Reservations that were made through the host hotel beginning July 1st and subsequently cancelled will be reinstated if you wish with priority given to the earliest callers.
- Reservations made after all rooms were spoken for are subject to cancellation, in which case the Host Hotel can assist you in moving your reservation to another approved hotel.
- A ‘waiting list’ will be established at the Holiday Inn in the event of any late cancellations.
- All Holiday Inn cancellations & reservations will be handled by Laura Taylor–Sales Mgr., who will call those affected in the very near future.
- The MARC rate of $119 booked directly with the Holiday Inn (host) includes breakfast. Other discounted rates may not include this amenity.
Thank you for your patience and understanding…

A message regarding annual membership dues:
Summer Greetings from the MARC Board of Directors
The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly required most individuals and organizations to make unwanted and unpopular changes. The ever decreasing membership levels along with normal inflation have impacted the club’s financial health. The MARC Board of Directors, after careful consideration, has decided that a modest increase of $5 in National dues is warranted. New and renewal U.S. memberships will be $50 beginning with the 2022 calendar year. Full details, including foreign rates, will be included in your renewal notice in the September/October issue of the Model A News. We trust that this will not place a financial burden on any individual, but the increase will ensure the fiscal health of our club for the future.
IMPORTANT!!! If you are a Regional newsletter editor or officer, PLEASE help us by sharing this message with all MARC members to whom you have access. This will help the MARC Office staff greatly by reducing the number of replies needed for those who send in the wrong amount for their membership renewal. So please, do this at your earliest convenience!
Thank you from your MARC Board of Directors.

New Youth Coordinator Emily Ellway
Hello, everyone! My name is Emily Ellway , and I am the Model A Restorers Club’s new Youth Coordinator. I am very excited to take on the position, having grown up in this amazing environment! As far as my love for Model A’s go, it is a strong love, built on a sturdy foundation. I have been attending MARC National Meets since before I was even born with my first meet being in Cincinnati in 2001! I grew up in my parents’ (Kevin & Teresa Ellway) 1929 Roadster Pickup, and it will always have a special place
in my heart. Growing up, I enjoyed going to the summer meets and seeing all of our friend s, participating in the chassis rebuild and Hubley race , and enjoying all the other children’s activities! I also spent many years helping my mom in touring class judging, which I really enjoyed. The meet has always been one of my favorite parts of summer because it is my way of seeing our country one state at a time, and I am so excited to see you all at the National 2021 Meet in Oshkosh!
As far as introducing myself personally, I am Ohio born and raised. I would describe myself as being determined , outgoing and adventurous. I have just entered my first year studying at Cleveland State University in the hopes of pursuing a career in the pediatric medical field someday. I graduated from high school this past May as class president and president of the National Honor Society, and I spent my free time working a part-time job and volunteering around town. I also spent a semester of my sophomore year studying abroad in Argentina, which was an amazing opportunity! I enjoyed high school and growing up around cars of all ages , and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life. I am very excited knowing that the next chapter includes continuing to be a part of MARC, and I look forward to spending time encouraging our youth to enjoy this amazing organization with all it has to offer! If you have any questions , comments or advice, please reach out to me at YouthCoordinator@Model-A-Ford.org. I am truly excited to start in this position, and see you all soon!
