Andrew is looking for approximately 15 collector vehicles (not all Triumphs) and their owners to participate. The event will begin at 9 a.m. with an information session for broker partners. At 11 a.m. Andrew will introduce owners and vehicles followed by a short drive (about 20-30 minutes) giving the brokers the experience to be driven around in classic vehicles (driven by the owner, of course). After that Hagerty will host a lunch and repeat the same schedule in the afternoon. Volunteers should be available from 11am-2:30pm. If any club members are available and willing to participate it would be greatly appreciated; please let Dave know at firstname.lastname@example.org
