  Heartland Militaria / Dixie Division Show
Montgomery, AL

August 03 - 04, 2019
Another opportunity for the Dixie Division to work with a new partner to promote collecting, our hobby, history and most importantly, our veterans. We have been looking to develop a relationship with other, similar groups to promote to larger numbers of people. Several of us met Matt Hindi at his show held in September 2018. He is very interested in having us become a part in this event.

This is an indoor / outdoor venue in Montgomery, AL located just behind Crampton Bowl Stadium in the Multiplex Facility. We can display inside and outside, vendors are welcome but there is a charge for the tables. Now we will need vehicles in various states of repair, restoration or just as you found them. Clear out your collections and let's have some real time swapping, trading and buying.

We need to promote this as a Southeastern regional event that is the to be place first weekend of August. From Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia we should be bringing in vendors, collectors, hobbyist and the public. It also allows the truly committed collectors one last chance to load up on items and then head out to the National the next week.

Cheaha Trail Ride
May 04 - 05, 2019
This is the third year of adventure taking a two-day trail-ride from Alexander City to Cheaha State Park. We leave on Saturday morning traveling the roughly 90 miles to Cheaha State Park. We spend the night at the Park with camping, campfires, etc. and do a return trip on Sunday but by a different and perhaps a bit more challenging route. Vehicle reliability is highly recommended, however we will help get you home if needed.

This springtime event hosted by Gary and Melissa Poe and Alan and Michael Roberts has developed into a bit of a specialty event for those of us who like to see and use our HMV's in their more natural elements, mud, dust, water. You know the FUN stuff. Plan for this one and get it on your calendar. If you're up to it.

This is a stop of our "Dixie Division MVC Tours Alabama 2019" events for this year.
