The Southern California Imperial Owners, Inc. (SCIOI) is sponsoring the 2008 Statewide Meet, which will take place in Bakersfield, CA, April 24 to 27. We would like to invite you to participate in this wonderful opportunity for Imperialists to have a fun filled weekend of “tire-kicking” and camaraderie among the historical sights (which may include shopping at the antique shops or going to the Golden West Casino, for those so inclined).
Host Hotel: Four Points by Sheraton (a non-smoking hotel). Check in time is after 3:00pm
5101 California Avenue, Bakersfield, CA 93309 Check out time is 12:00pm
Reservations: phone (661) 325-9700 or on the internet. (I will e-mail the link to you.)
Request “Reservations” then identify yourself with the “Imperial Car Owners” to get our group rate of $99. Our block of 40 rooms will be held until April 8th; after then the regular rates will apply. The rooms have either one king or two queens beds. The hotel does not have an elevator to the second floor; so if you need a downstairs room, please request it.
