2018 MAFCA National Convention

Welcome to NCRG's home page for hosting the 2018 Model A Ford Club of America's National Convention in Sparks, NV on June 24 through June 29, 2018. The NCRG Board is pleased to be the Convention host and is looking forward to making the Convention an interesting and enjoyable event for all Model A Ford owners.

This page contains all the information you will need to register for the Convention including the Early Bird Newsletters which describe the many events and activities planned for you, the various accommodations available during the Convention. Also included here is information about the great room rate of $79 plus taxes per night at the Nugget Casino Resort, our host hotel. And most importantly, you will find here all the registration forms and information you will need to register for the Convention (click on Registration Forms on the left side of this page).

We encourage you to register as soon as possible as some of the bus tours have reached capacity and have been closed. All bus tour reservations close on June 15, 2018. The early registration fee offer ended on May 1, 2018. If you need additional information or have any questions about the Convention or registration process, contact any of the people listed below.

Important Notice Regarding Pre-convention
Room Reservations at the Nugget Casino Resort
The Nugget Casino Resort has notified us that we have reached our contractual limit on the number of $79/night reservations for Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23 only. This means that anyone making pre-convention hotel reservations at the Nugget Casino Resort after April 1 will be charged the prevailing rate for a room for those two nights only. The prevailing rates for these two dates can change daily and will depend on which day is involved. If you have already made a reservation for these two pre-convention nights with the Nugget Casino Resort they will continue to honor those reservations and price commitments.

This change in hotel rates in no way affects the $79/night rate we have negotiated for the Convention dates of June 24 through June 29. In addition, the Nugget Casino Resort has assured us that they will honor the $79/night rate for 3 days after the Convention if any Convention attendees decide to extend their stay in Reno for the weekend.

We regret this change in reservation rates but it will impact only a few Convention attendees and lodging alternatives exist in the Reno/Sparks area.

Convention Raffle Room Invitation

Our Convention raffle room is being managed by the Modesto Area Model A Club. This is a general request to all clubs to send an item that can be used in the raffle room.
