The New England Gathering is Happening
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 5/26/2021 8 Replies

Thanks to the relaxation of CV-19 guidelines we'll be able to have the Gathering once again.

iATN members John Morrissey and myself along with Michelle Morrissey and Midge will be hosting the NE 2021 Gathering in Mass on July 31st at our home in Oakham Ma.

There is limited space for campers but all are welcome, neighbors will accept overflow parking, and hotels are all about 30 minutes away in Worcester, Sturbridge, or Auburn MA.

Folks who will be camping are welcome to arrive on the 30th and hang out till Sunday.

We have no set plans for diagnostics, education, or repairs but as always, we play with what we feel like. There'll be some homemade ice cream courtesy of Jeff Clark and his antique Fairbanks-Morse engine. There will be plenty of great food on Saturday. Family and pets are welcome.

We'd appreciate knowing in advance who is coming and whether you plan to camp with us. Best to post your plans on this thread if you will. Address is 67 Crocker Nye Rd. in Oakham, MA. 01068

If you are coming from the South get to North Brookfield center and GPS in from there. From the Mass Pike West, exit at Palmer and follow RT 32 toward Hardwick and turn right at Hardwick Rd. GPS from there.

From Auburn, take Rt 56 into Paxton and turn left on Rt 122N and follow the Worcester directions here:

From Worcester, follow RT 122N toward Paxton and Barre and take the third left after the intersection of RT 122A in Rutland onto Old Turnpike, go 3 miles and turn left onto Scott Rd. Next right onto Crocker Nye Rd. and we are just a short way on the left.
