The Missouri/Illinois “Gateway” Chapters of the Studebaker Drivers Club and the Avanti Owners Association, Inc. are honored to host the 51st International SDC Meet! We invite members of SDC, AOAI and Antique Studebaker Club to join us in the Maryland Heights suburb of greater St. Louis for a memorable experience during the week of August 16 thru August 22, 2015.
Just as St. Louis is central to the United States, the Meet location is central to the St. Louis metropolitan area with access to Interstates as well as local attractions. Regarding local attractions, the largest St. Louis attraction, the Gateway Arch will be celebrating 50 years in 2015. Coincidently, in 2015, the AOAI will also be 50 years old. Both will be recognized.
The host hotel for the 51st International Meet is the Sheraton Westport Chalet, part of the Westport Plaza complex; a family friendly hotel and entertainment complex. All of the Meet’s events will be held at the complex. Other than tours, you may not need to leave the grounds. Tours are being planned for the Arch, the Anheuser-Busch/Inbev Brewery, Busch Stadium, St. Louis Zoo, local transportation museums and other venues.
Some may remember the heat and hospitality of the 1981 St. Louis Meet. We still hear comments on both. We will plan for both, however, our members’ primary focus is on hospitality. Most swap meet spaces are cool and undercover. Please join us for that hospitality and to experience what St. Louis has to offer!
