Title: Sept. 17-19, 2021 - 10th Anniversary Pontiac Celebration in Warwick, RI
Post by: firebirdclub on January 17, 2020, 11:19:50 PM

It’s with a great deal of disappointment that we have been forced to cancel the 2020 “Pontiac Celebration” in Warwick, Rhode Island this coming September.

As much as we were hoping to be able to hold the event (albeit probably with numerous revisions), the decision has been removed from our hands as the state of Rhode Island’s coming regulations are still unknown, and the host hotel, Crowne Plaza, does not feel it will be equipped to host such a large event in the present environment, nor make necessary revisions to assure everyone’s well being by the time of our show.

The Crowne Plaza has allowed us to book the next Pontiac Celebration for September 17-19, 2021. Everyone hopes all the uncertainties we are presently facing will be over by then, or at least new operational procedures will be in place by that time.

If you have already registered for “A Pontiac Celebration– 2020” we would like to ask if you will allow us to move your paid reservation to 2021. If you have also reserved your room at the host hotel they are going to automatically move the same day allotment you reserved to the new dates
in 2021. Once we tell them to, the hotel will notify you of such. The only thing that will need to be changed is sometime in about October, you will have to contact the hotel and give them your credit card information again (they are not able to transfer the money part for obvious security reasons).

We had hoped this decision would not have had to be made, but we are in some very uncertain times. We are further saddened that the contributions we have made to our two children’s cancer charities will have to wait another year. We are very proud of all the Pontiac hobbyists’ support of our event that has allowed $50,000 to be donated over the past years.

If you have any questions, please respond to Rick at: or 401-934-0663 or Larry at: info@pontiacreg-

Please be safe and stay healthy!
