Warm Greetings from the DelMarVa Peninsula Chapter!
As one of the youngest, newest, and smallest Chapters in the SDC, we are both honored and delighted to host the International Studebaker Drivers Club's 50th Golden Meet here on the DelMarVa Peninsula. We'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome our friends from the Antique Studebaker Club and the Avanti Owners Association. Our unique and semi-remote region located on the Mid-Atlantic Seacoast will offer you enjoyment opportunities never before found at an SDC International Meet.
Delaware is the only state in the United States with no commercial airport of any kind. The closest airports to serve the Dover area are Philadelphia International (an hour and twenty minutes north), BWI in Baltimore (an hour and forty minutes west), Reagan National (two hours west), and Dulles International (two and a half hours west).
Technically, the lower 3/4 of the DelMarVa Peninsula is an island, and as such, you may be crossing some substantial bridges to get here. Your trip here may include the 7-mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge to the due west, or the 17-mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel from the due south; a spectacular world famous attraction in and of itself.
Delaware is home to tax-free shopping, as there is no sales tax in the state. This is one of the many reasons the state draws so many visitors to our outlet centers and malls, not to mention our world famous Chesapeake Bay seafood and famous summer beach resort areas. The lower DelMarVa Peninsula is the home of Misty The Pony, of which several famous children's books were written. The Chincoteague Pony is found nowhere else in the world.
We look forward to making this Meet a one of a kind memorable experience, with events, tours, and seminars never before available at an International Meet. Our primary goal is to make sure you leave happy that you came, and that you'll plan to come back a visit us again.
Our art history will amaze you. Our Revolutionary and Civil War history will enthrall you. Our beaches will hook you. And our world famous seafood will reel you in.
Immediately following the SDC Awards Banquet on Friday, July 4th, walk (or ride) around back for our private viewing of the Capitol City's fantastic 4th of July Fireworks Presentation.
