TWO GREAT EVENTS ~ ONE INCREDIBLE BRITISH WEEKEND!
Saturday, 9/16/2017, Drive to McCall Idaho
We will kick off SWIABFM 2017 with a breakfast at Eddie’s Restaurant in Boise at 7:00 a.m. After breakfast, we will meet with others in the parking lot to sign in and then drive up to McCall ID, where we will have a show at the Depot Park next to the Hotel McCall. If you sign up for it, you can have lunch and a tour of Payette Lake on a tour boat especially arranged for our group. After the Show, we will drive back to Boise/Meridian and get our vehicles ready for the Sunday show at the Village at Meridian.
Because we know there may be some folks who will want to start out in McCall or will drive up the night before from the Boise area, we are working on accommodations for you at a couple of the McCall hotels. Look at the Accommodations page for more details.
Sunday, 9/17/2017, SWIABFM at the Village at Meridian
Want a glimpse of what to expect? Take a look at last year’s photos here. The Village at Meridian has become not only a unique shopping, dining and entertainment center, it also helps sponsor events like the SWIABFM and our support of the Meridian Food Bank and local community needs. The Show will start at 10:00 a.m. and go through to 4:00 p.m. Half of the South Village streets will be blocked off for the cars and motorcycles, where the attendees and visitors can freely take a look at them and visit the Meridian Food Bank booth to give their donations.
At noon, the West Abbey Road, a Beatles tribute band, will perform for everyone’s entertainment in the Fountain Square. One of the Village’s restaurants will have set up a Beer Tent where you can buy some local craft beers and wines.
The awards will be for Best in Class, for which the attendees will vote. Also, visitors and attendees will get to vote for the People’s Choice (Best of Show) award by making a donation to the Meridian Food Bank. The awards and raffle ticket drawings will start at 3:30 p.m.
