The 41st Annual Texas Packard Meet will be held at the Inn of the Hills Hotel and Conference Center, 1001 Junction Highway, Kerrville, Texas.  It will be the first weekend in April (April 5-8).  Rooms in the block will be available Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

When making individual reservations, please call Inn of the Hills Resort & Conference Center @ 800-292-5690 and request the Texas Packard Meet block to secure the negotiated group room rate.  For any additional questions please contact the Texas Packard Meet coordinator (Beverly Teel, 210-922-1300) or Inn of the Hills Sales Department at 830-895-6018.

The block of rooms will be held until MARCH 06, 2018 at which time those rooms not reserved will be released for sale to others.  Reservations received after this date will be accepted based on availability.  Cancellation of a guaranteed individual reservation must be received 24 hours prior to the day of arrival to avoid a no-show charge at the group rate.  Rooms will be available for check-in on the day of arrival at 4:00 pm.  Checkout time is 12:00 noon.

If you have ideas for meetings after 2018, please see the following information:


Please be advised that if your region wants to suggest another venue, “closer to home”, for the Texas Packard Meet, it will be your responsibility to do all of the research.  This includes all costs involved in providing our needs.  The site selected must meet the following criteria:

  >75-100 guest rooms, price is important and can be negotiated, that includes good prices for meeting rooms.   

  >The date of the first weekend in April is important; Easter is April 16th so that should not present a conflict.
>A room which can be used for registration, hospitality, perhaps a meal and can comfortably seat 150-200 for the awards program and for the Sunday morning business meeting.  This room needs to be available from 4:00 pm till 11:00 pm on Thursday, 7:00 a.m.- 11:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and 9:00 am – 12:00 noon on Sunday.

  >The ability to provide our own snacks and drinks for the hospitality room.

  >Ability to provide finger foods for Saturday noon, at a reasonable price.
>A room to accommodate individuals who attend tech sessions.  It needs to be available from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm on Saturday.

  >A room available for a National Board Meeting.
>A banquet room which will seat at least 100 people and the capability of providing the Saturday evening dinner.
>It should have a restaurant on location so that people can get a meal; the Stage Coach Inn coffee shop was often closed.   
>An area which will accommodate 50 to 65 cars to be displayed on Saturday, and an area to handle trailers that haul the cars.

  >A location suitable for the Friday tour.
>One of most important issues is traffic.  We are trying to stay away from cities where there is a lot of traffic.    


Please include all of the costs involved, for the entire weekend, in your presentation.  Please understand that if your site is chosen, it will be your responsibility to make all of the arrangements for the entire weekend and buy the items for the hospitality room.

Note: A team will be visiting Salado this year hoping to find a way to get the meet back there for 2019 and beyond. The Stagecoach Inn is still not making any progress with the re-do, but we are all hoping that they will be able to shift into high gear soon and get the place in order. If they fail, there may be a way to have a Plan B.




If you need some help you may call Bill Clark at 210-347-5295 (I have no official standing for the meet, but will take your calls.)

Two Packards for sale that might interest members (these sellers are not endorsed by the Texas Packard Meet)

1933 Coupe

The owner bought it to modify, but decided that it was just too nice an example of an original car. He wants $45,000 for it. He is in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. His phone number is missing in action (I would like for him to call me and give me his number as I have misplaced it.) . Click her to see image 1. Image 2. Image 3.

1930 733 Cabriolet

This is a pricey one, but really nice. Some members may remember this car which showed up late for the last meet held at the Stagecoach Inn. They want $149,900 for the car. It is in Austin (Stressless Auto, 512-814-1059). Image 1
