Springfield Armory National Historic Site has been chosen as the site of the 2019 GCA Convention. (https://www.nps.gov/spar/index.htm) The dates are September 27-29, 2019.

The headquarters hotel is Tower Square Hotel, 2 Boland Way, Springfield, MA 01115. Tower Square Hotel is only a mile from the Armory. The specially negotiated Garand Collectors Association rate is $119 per night, which includes parking. The GCA room block expires on August 25, 2019, or when the room block is full, whichever comes first. You can make reservations by calling 413-781-7111 (mention Garand Collectors Association rate), or online at: https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx?Hotel=95080&Chain=5150&arrive=9/26/2019&depart=9/30/2019&adult=1&child=0&group=GTGCAN

The schedule includes a Friday night meet-and-greet at Springfield Armory, tours of the Armory on Saturday, a banquet on Saturday evening, and a “talk back” breakfast Sunday morning.

Registration will open soon, but hotel reservations can be made now. Watch the web site and Facebook page for more details! An upcoming GCA Journal will also have complete details.
