Hosting a VTCI Regional or International? Here are some tips
to make things go more smoothly.


2019 VTCI Northwest Regional  July 18th-20th, Spokane WA

 The Inland Northwest Thunderbird club is honored to host the 2019 VTCI NW Regional Thunderbird Family Reunion

This club has always said that Thunderbird owners are family and that is the reason we call it a family reunion.  We hosted our first Reunion in 2009 introducing the participants to some of the NW Summer events and area scenery.  This year’s event will do the same.

When you visit Spokane, it won’t take you long to realize you have arrived someplace special.  The spectacular scenery and incredible weather make Spokane a terrific destination to host an event like this.  Spokane offers an abundance of activities for the outdoor enthusiast from:  hiking, skiing, mountain biking, boating, swimming and fishing.  Along with the outdoor adventures you will be amazed to find world-class urban amenities right at your fingertips.  The city provides plenty of cultural arts, shopping, dining and entertainment options to choose from.  We promise, you will soon discover why visitors fall in love with Spokane. 

Wednesday 17thIf plenty of our family will be arriving on Wednesday we will open registration after dinner and have a Welcome Dessert Party.  This will be a celebration of Thunderbirds coming together to reunite old friendships and to make new ones!

Thursday 18th-Enjoy the day on your own exploring Spokane Valley, free shuttle to nearby Valley Mall and surrounding area.  Spend the day shopping, sightseeing or just kick back and relax before the evening festivities get underway.  We will be attending the Inland Northwest Car Club Council Downtown Scholarship Show, where there will be over 400 cars; customs, classics and rods.  The Thunderbirds will be parked on the main street and a special trophy to be awarded to a lucky family member.

Friday 19th-Come enjoy a bus tour of some of the great houses in Spokane and then the beautiful Manito Park.  Officially established in April 1904 and has evolved from an undeveloped recreational area with a few flower beds, picnic spots, and a zoo to one of Spokane's primary showplaces. Comprised of five major garden areas (the Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden, Duncan Garden, Rose Hill, Lilac Garden and Ferris Perennial Garden), Manito Park is nationally recognized for its diverse horticultural displays.  There we will enjoy a catered lunch, and then it is off to more exploring ending at Arbor Crest for wine tasting if you so choose.

The evening will be on your own, however we have arranged for transportation to Northern Quest Resort & Casino.  There you can enjoy several dining options, shopping and gaming:

Saturday 20th-Time for the show!!!  A short drive from the hotel to the Brookdale Park Place – Senior Living, it is a wonderful location on the grass under the tall trees.  The residents will be there to greet us and enjoying the show.  This will be a participant judged show with the option of having your car judged based on VTCI criteria for informational purposes.  This will help you get your Thunderbird ready for the 2020 VTCI International in Portland Oregon.  The evening will be capped off with a Backyard Family Bar-B-Que Awards banquet.

Sunday 21st-Time to say au revoir, until we meet again.-I know you will enjoy your time visiting us in Spokane
