Sept 16-17: Overnighter Details

Lincoln & Continental Owner Club Overnighter

September 16 – 17, 2017

The LCOC overnighter is a tradition of the Michigan Region where a member works hard to plan a fun and exciting day of events that ends with an overnight stay at a hotel located generally on the western side of the state.   It allows those on that side of the state to join up with the members who live more in the southeastern part of Michigan without a long drive and those from the SE side to enjoy visiting a few places that are  a little inconvenient to see in a single day and still drive home.

That being said, please read on to see the things that are planned for the Saturday and Sunday activites of the Michigan Region!

Book your hotel by August 22 (Read below)!
