THE 2018 Grand STuTZ Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

I know that a lot of you will think that it is too early to start thinking about and focusing on a Grand STuTZ that takes place in May of 2018.  But, to encourage participation by members located a one day drive from Gettysburg, you must know that we have a member from the UK, a member from Sweden and his son, and two members from Australia making the trip to take part in the event.  It is not required to bring a car to attend and enjoy a Grand STuTZ.

If you are planning to attend, or seriously thinking about it, you need to make your hotel reservation soon.  

  • The STuTZ Club and the Marmon Club are sharing the rooms blocked by the Delaware Valley Region CCCA.
  • These rooms will fill up quickly and I do not want our members missing out and staying at another hotel.  There is a lot of tourist activity in the Gettysburg area and hotel rooms are limited.
  • The Wyndham cancellation policy is very liberal with cancellations needing to be made by 4:00 PM on the day before your arrival. 
  • The Wyndham Gettysburg Gateway is the host hotel for our Grand STuTZ, The Delaware Valley Region CCCA Grand Classic, and the Marmon Muster.  
  • After you make your reservation, please send me an email to let me know the day you plan to arrive and the day you plan to depart.

Instructions for making your reservation on-line are below.

The STuTZ Centennial Celebration held in 2011 was a great success.  The weather was good, the cars were beautiful, the activities were well planned, and the members had a wonderful time.  Everyone will remember the Stutz Hispano Suiza race, the parade lap, 50 + STuTZ cars on display, the parade lap, and the banquet in the STuTZ factory.  Did I mention the parade lap?

Club members continued the celebration during 2011 by attending many events.  They won some awards but more importantly, they won the appreciation of the event organizers and the public.
