LCOC Western Region is starting 2023 off right by sponsoring a weekend of gorgeous cars, great food and fun in fabulous Las Vegas! We could hardly wait to give you the details about this fantastic event!. We’ll meet and mingle with our Western Region members and their classics from Nevada, but of course, California (or other) members, family and friends and their Lincolns are welcome too.
Thanks to the stellar efforts of our newest board member Scott Balanda we have a full weekend of excitement planned. But don’t be dismayed if your schedule only permits you to attend some of the events. Our modular itinerary permits you to register for any or all of the great times on tap.
Read all abut it below and then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 25 with your name, email, phone number and reservations with the number in your party for Activities 1, 2, 3, 4 or any combination of these events.
For all members attending who live outside the Las Vegas area, drive to Las Vegas early, or if possible the day before on Thursday February 2nd. You will want to make your own overnight arrangements.
